'V-Table' by Xavier Lust for Tacchini

Sheet metal is his material. With his sophisticated objects made of smartly folded sheet metal the Belgian designer Xavier Lust made his mark in the international design scene. For the Italian manufacturer Tacchini he designed this occasional table which meets, due to its simple but tricky three-leg base, the needs of large-scale production and distribution. ‘V-table’ is suitable for in and outdorr use.

'Tension Table' by Alain Gilles

The Belgian designer Alain Gilles realised this series of coffee tables for the newly opened Galerie Gosserez in Paris. It is made from a decent wire frame and a folded sheet metal top.

“Visually, the aim of the project is to create a sense of tension and weightlessness, as if the tables were resting on one leg only”, the designer explains.

'Don’t Hide Your Light Under A Bushel', table lamp by Uli Budde

After several year’s in the Netherlands the German designer Uli Budde, who started to study at Fachhochschule Potsdam and graduated at Design Acadamy Eindhoven moved back to Berlin. At this year’s DMY festival he presented his newest creation, the table lamp ‘Don’t Hide Your Light Under A Bushel’. It is composed of two basic elements – a cylindric body which includes the Halogene light source and a tilted, cicular reflector. Clear and understandable design – that’s what we like Uli Budde’s work for.

Last year we discovered the young Berlin based designer Robert Hoffmann at DMY festival, when presented his final year project. This year he showcased his newest creation ‘Trapezium’ a rather artless yet impressing pendant light which is composed of two identical halfs of edged sheet metal. The illuminated gap between these two elements underlines the lamp’s simple composition.

'Toro' by Felix Klingmüller

The Freiburg and Cologne based designers Arwed Guderian and Felix Klingmüller – together they are Guderian&Klingmüller – presented their newest creations during this year’s DMY Festival in Berlin – amongst them these figurative trestles with the iconic name ‘Toro’ by Felix Klingmüller. The adjustable ‘cow horns’ enable the user to apply different sizes of table tops. The distance between the horns is scalable from 65 – 90 cm.

The stool or occasional table ‘Dot’ is also based on a clamping mechanism. The splay of the sheet metal stabilizes the seating surface and builds the holder of the legs.

'Rearranged' by Nicola from Bern, photo by Michael Sieber

Our friend Nicola from Bern just sent us these beautiful photographs of his newest work ‘Rearranged’. The series of chairs is composed of the classic shell of the Charles and Ray Eames Plastic Chair Series and a new base made from powder-coated sheet metal. With his convincing half ready-mades the young Swiss designer wants to question the fast-paced production and developments of todays design industry.

Don’t miss to read Nicola’s intresting background story:

“Rearranged tries to demonstrate the potential of an alternative mentality to the established design industry in order to encourage them to alter the traditional perspective of product development already today. Why launching products with identical performance on an annual basis when there are well-known designs within the same enterprise? Many design classics were designed with the highest degree of flexibility and adaptability in mind, but their huge success and the resulting request for preservation made it difficult for the companies to do other than establishing an untouchable status.
With Charles and Ray Eames’ Plastic Chair Series I not only attempt to proof the feasibility but to highlight ecological and economical benefits of Rearranged as well. As an intermediate setup, the existing infrastructure can be maintained while adding just fractional diversification.”

'loll' side table by e27

Within the ‘Made in Berlin’ exhibition which was set up by DMY and Create Berlin during this year’s Milan Design Week the Berlin based practice e27 presented these new pieces, made from laser cut steel sheet.

“The idea of ‘loll’ is to transfer the idea of stretching metal from 2d to 3d into furniture solutions. stretching the laser cut steel sheet up to maximal strain creates a static equilibrium. with this simple but ingenious technique, a metal sheet just 3 mm thick has been turned into a lounger and a coffee table”, the designers explain.
