Named after ‘a phonetic transposition of the Japanese word for “tray”’, ‘Torei’ can be arranged and grouped in multiple combinations or used individually, according to need. The elegant and multifunctional system was presented earlier last month during the Salone del Mobile fair. (more…)

Sketch of the 'Swell' pen holder by Luca Nichetto

At least judging by the recent edition of Milan’s Salone del Mobile where this acclaimed industrial designer who divides his time between his native Italy and Sweden, launched no less than 17 brand new products for 11 international labels such as Cassina, DePadova, Established&Sons and Foscarini to name just a few.

'Tua' table lamp by Marco Zito for Foscarini

Foscarini surprised with an impressing video installation during this year’s Salone del Mobile at Superstudio Più. Amongst others the Italian manufacturer presented a new table lamp by Marco Zito.

Its simplicity enhances the elegance with which every detail has been designed: the wide angle of its bend, the subtraction of material from one of the two sides and the treatment of the rounded corners.

The pendant light ‘Troag’ by Luca Nichetto is made of multilayered, heat-curved wood whose edges are specially milled to create an inclined, dynamic profile, emphasised by the grain of the wood.
