Following hemp, kenaf and polycaprolactone wax soap has become yet another unusual material employed in the furniture design showcased at this year’s Salone Internazionale del Mobile. Created by the Austrian design practice Pudelskern, ‘Tabula Rasa’ is a table made of translucent natural soap and it was presented at the ‘Design Vision Austria’ exhibition in Zona Tortona.

Milan 2011: ‘Amateur Masters’ by Jerszy Seymour for NgispeN (NL)

Posted by Malgorzata Stankiewicz on 21.04.2011 - Tagged as: , ,

Jerszy Seymour's 'Amateur Masters' series stemmed from a number of exhibitions in which he surveyed the idea of an 'amateur' society

Handmade and moulded from wax – one would be forgiven for thinking that the object in question is a collection of upmarket candles. However, it is not. The designs in question are an armchair and a chair from Jerszy Seymour’s ‘Amateur Masters’ series, unveiled as part of NgispeN’s collection at the Zona Tortona’s Superstudio during this year’s Salone Internazionale del Mobile.


'Dexter' stool by Stockholm-based young designer and architect Andreas Farkas has been created in collaboration with the Swedish furniture manufacturer Lammhults


With an abundance of fresh ideas and youthful enthusiasm, it is no news that manufacturers and design houses repeatedly turn to young, up-and-coming designers when expanding or redeveloping their brands. And with a new strategy for 2011, the Swedish furniture manufacturer Lammhults did just that by inviting a number of ‘young designers who have a new approach to Lammhults’ design tradition’ to collaborate with them.


Konstantin Grcic's new 'Avus' club chair for Italian manufacturer Plank

Every now and then, a design comes long that truly divides opinion. Here’s one of them.

Exhibited at the stand of Italian design manufacturer Plank at this year’s Milan Salone del Mobile, Konstantin Grcic’s new ‘Avus’ club chair managed to cause a bit of a stir. The leather-upholstered seat speaks of hotel lounge bars and tall drinks. The base, on the other hand, is a completely different story. Made of ABS, it consists of a twin-sheet moulded shell, reinforced with a polyurethane foam core, which, through its styling, shouts about its latest-technology credentials. It’s no accident, therefore, that the formal language of the chair’s base is reminiscent of things automotive.
