Quinze Milan recently unveiled the novelties they are going to show during this year’s Salone del Mobile. Amongst them the beautiful series of aluminium tables by the Chinese designer Zhili Liu which looks a bit like the inordinate version of a table by our friend Nosigner.


“Its exposed sunken screws bolt together the table top with all the “branches” of table legs, forming dozens of stable triangles, which make the table top part of the frame to share the stress in the legs, thus material needed to make a table is minimized”, the designer explains.


You will find all products live in Hall 12 – Booth C23.

'Shrub' tables by Zhili Liu for Quinze & Milan, 2010

Of the tables, the designer says: ‘Chinese manufacturing is usually famous for large quantity, low quality and very limited new material and technology. So for Chinese designers, creating low quantity products with high quality in both design and manufacturing has always been a tougher task than it is in most other places. I have been trying to create high specification products with typical Chinese industrial materials and basic techniques, through unusual design and engineering, and these tables are the first prototypes in this direction – which I believe could be another route for “Chinese design” aside from reinterpreting the traditional decorative elements.’

'Bag Stool' by Quinze + Milan

For the first time in its existence the Belgian manufacturer Quinze & Milan goes concrete!

Referencing material consumption, Gitta Gschwendtner has created concrete and woodcrete stools cast from moulds based on paper shopping bags. Their individual, irregular form is created during the casting process. This playful design looks like it’s popping up right from the ground.

The concrete version is suited for outdoor use and the woodcrete version for indoor use. This is a lighter version made up from a mixture of concrete and wood fibres which makes it lighter and a more environmentally friendly.

'Fingers' by Studio Arne Quinze

'Fingers' by Studio Arne Quinze

The Belgian manufacturer Quinze + Milan presented this new shelf made of powder coated steel shelves and wooden ‘fingers’ seemingly piercing through the steel. The shelves are never equal in size and the fingers are put in three different angles. Like this they create an organic look symbolizing movement, randomness and chaos, nevertheless offering a maximum of usability. Next to the standard models Quinze + Milan offer custom made ‘Fingers’.
