The Barcelona based emiliana design studio, founded by Emili Padrós and Ana Mir recently completed this family of plywood furniture. The most sophisticated piece is the stool, which comes in three different heights. It combines four identical pieces of plywood to construct the seat. The empty spaces generated in the corners of the plywood seat make Naoshima a light and visually vibrant piece of furniture.

'RAWtation' stool by Adi Zaffran

The name is not only a wordplay, it also captures it all. This beautiful and highly poetic collection of furniture was designed by the young Israel designer Adi Zaffran. Learning the industrial process of plastic rotational molding he discovered the potential of including raw organic elements into the process and developed a method which combines the organic and the synthetic without the need of cold joints or complex adjustments.

'Unit E&S' by Robert Wettstein

With his newest conceptual work the Swiss designer Robert Wettstein seems to comment the influence of corporate identity and branding of todays furniture industry. During this year’s Milan Design Week he will present this high table / bench made from the packaging of a renowned British furniture manufacturer. The exhibition will be set up at La Fabbrica del Vapore via G. C. Procaccini 4

'Unit E&S' by Robert Wettstein

Here is what Robert Wettstein explains:

“The piece is made from a transportation box which once contained a valuable piece of design. After carrying the product well-protected to the client the box fulfilled its requirements and is not needed anymore. Usually! I give it a new function. Refined by a transparent coating applied by a specialist the box turns into a useful piece of furniture. The irony lies in the playful handling of branding and editions since every box is signed by me.”

'XXX' by Johanna Grawunder

The glass manufacturer Glas Italia presented a range of pretty diverse products this year, among them the colourful table series by the Milano based American designer Johanna Grawunder. The overlapping variably tinted elements create a multi-faceted play of colours and underline the geometric basic design of the table.

'Vitruvian' by Piero Lissoni

'Vitruvian' by Piero Lissoni

Piero Lissonis contibution is a very clear and minimal series of rectangular high tables. The base, in transparent extra-light 19 mm. thick glass, shaped and ground with a shiny curved edge, is composed of two supporting elements, linked to a tie bar by means of satined steel plates. The extreme thinness and lightness of the base, achieved through a sophisticated and complex production process, corresponds to the solidity which the special tempering process provides.
