&Tradition – Inland AV23 Anderssen & Voll
A square, high-armed sofa with a black steel-footed base, Anderssen & Voll’s Inland showcases an Italian approach to a classic mid-century modern lounge piece. Featuring the plush cushion seating of typical Italian designs, Inland comes available as either a two-seater or a three-seater in a number of upholstery options.
&Tradition – Tung JA3 John Astbury
With soft yet oversized proportions, the Tung side table plays with contrasts. Designed by contemporary British designer John Astbury, it translates large, heavy elements into a lighter, more gentle expression. Its three curved legs allude to the hulking presence of ancient pillars, but their glossy, light-reflecting surface evokes a sense of ephemerality. Made from lacquered MDF, Tung is available in Burgundy Red or Steel Blue.
&Tradition – Alima NDS1 Note Design Studio
Created to bridge the gap between home and office, the Alima trolley has been designed to promote maximum efficiency. Featuring a wound, natural leather handle and solid oak or walnut tray, Alima’s sleek frame comes in chrome or matt black powder coated steel.
&Tradition – Raku SH8 Sebastian Herkner
Named after the traditional Japanese pottery technique the lamp’s base is made using, Raku is a compact portable lighting solution which comes in two shades: Blue Green & Brass and Beige Grey & Bronzed.
&Tradition – Herman SHY3 Signe Hytte
Named after the great Danish author Herman Bang, the Herman lamp is a tribute to the journalist’s artistic legacy and the way in which he led his life. Featuring an opal glass shade, wooden stem and marble base, the lamp is reminiscent of the ones that would have been standing at Bang’s desk as he wrote his classics.
Hay- Colour Kabinet L
Designed by Belgian designers Muller Van Severen, the Colour Cabinet collection is a series of floor standing and wall-hanging cabinets that highlight the contradictory interplay between clean, minimalist design with the vibrance and originality of colour. With functionality as a starting point, the designers explore how contrasts and similarities in materials and colours enhance and showcase the material’s natural beauty in furniture items.
Designed by French designers Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, Pier System is a multifunctional storage system developed to accommodate and adapt to modern lifestyle requirements. Featuring a flat-pack design that is easy to assemble, reconfigure and recycle, the simple construction provides a flexible shelving solution for organising and storing a multitude of items. Pier System is available in a variety of colours and set configurations that can be combined with each other. Elements that are part of these configurations can be moved around as needed and desired, enabling the user to incorporate work, wardrobe or organisational functions into most rooms and environments, from living rooms and bedrooms to entrance halls and office areas.
The Result Armchair shares the same thin steel-sheet base, oak seat and backrest as the original Result Chair, but is supplemented by elevated armests that bring additional comfort and functionality to the design. Originally created by Friso Kramer and Wim Rietveld while working at Ahrend in the 1950s, the cutout steel collection has been relaunched by HAY together with Ahrend. It is available in a variety of wood finishes and base colours, as well as a variant with upholstered seat and a fully upholstered version offered in a wide range of textiles and leather options.
Gubi – Basket Collection
At first glance, anyone familiar with the work of Joe Colombo would be surprised by the Basket Collection. From a designer known for his futuristic style, his love of technology and his affinity for synthetic materials, a furniture collection in rattan seems like a significant departure from the norm. Look a little closer, however, and the hallmarks of classic Colombo become clear: organic lines, a distinctly modernist aesthetic, and a highly innovative approach to his chosen material.
Gubi – Doric Coffee Table
The Doric Coffee Table by GamFratesi takes its name from the Doric order of ancient Greek – and later Roman – architecture. The oldest and least ornamental of the three Classical orders, Doric architecture is characterized by restraint, symmetry, and simplicity, with decorative features generally limited to the vertical fluting that is so closely associated with the Doric column. Historic yet contemporary, curved yet geometric, hard yet soft – characteristics which are all embraced in the design of thw new Doric Coffee Tables.
