'Scalo' by Cerruti Baleri

In Milan the Italian manufacturer Cerruti Baleri presented a new multifunctional furniture designed by Beoc. ‘Scalo’ is a sidetable or stool which is convertible into a step ladder or a small bookshelf through the movement of hidden hinges. It is made of bent plywood in natural ash colour with laminated lead-grey interior or in moka ash colour with laminated red interior. A stainless steel stop securely locks Scalo in both configurations.

'ladder no.1' by Casimir

'ladder no.1' by Casimir

CasimirMeubelen is a Belgian manufacturer founded in 1995 by Casimir, one of the most important Belgian contemporary designers. The whole collection is designed by him, which gives the company a very strong profile and recognition value.

Almost all of the pieces are made of natural materials such as solid wood and leather and stand out by their simplicity, shapes and craftsmanship.

‘Ledder no1′ combines the function of a portable set of steps with the function of a storage unit. The ladder’s rungs have been transformed into book cases and shelves of unequal sizes. By placing these storage units on the back of the ladder, the ladder leans against the wall with even greater stability.’

'Poutrel' by Casimir

'Poutrel' by Casimir

The beam (in Flemish dialect called ‘poutrel’) is one of the principal elements in construction with a very clear function: to support. This ‘Poutrel’ is withdrawn from its usual context, surrounded by other constructional members, and reduced to the I-form.

However recognisable by its form, the use of solid wood gives ‘Poutrel’ an entirely different look. At the same time the wooden Poutrel’s function becomes ambiguous. ‘Poutrel’ still supports, but is no longer compulsory within a construction and can therefore be used in different ways: as a bench, a table, a TV bench, …’

'Zak no.2' by Casimir

'Zak no.2' by Casimir

‘The series ‘Zak’ are based on an ordinary object in its original function (carrying / storing) and form, but made of an exceptional material (leather). One of the most archetypal and useful utensils of our times, the carrier bag (in Flemish dialect called ‘zak’), is reformed to last as durable furniture.

‘The bag’s form has been maintained. Just like the plastic version, each bag in ‘Zak no.2′ slightly deviates from the perfect model. The quality of the materials and the property of leather to age gracefully, incite one to use this furniture. The soft leather furthermore causes the bags to take the form of their contents. The leather bags are hooked into a stackable oak frame and can be filled, transported, filed, …’

'nan15' by nanoo

'nan15' by nanoo

The Swiss manufacturer nanoo presented this modular new shelf system designed by the Israeli designer Nitzan Cohen. The shelves impress through their concept. On the basis of the kind of bookends that one finds in every library, Nitzan Cohen develops a whole set of shelves. Base and back form a module with which a set of shelves in almost any size can be constructed. Already the smallest individual part forms an element that in itself functions as a miniature shelf. The product is characterised by a slightly inclined base with side walls positioned at right angles on either end. That means books are always in their optimal position on the shelves, even in small groups. Even when a book is taken out, what happens is not what we all know and expect: the remaining books do not begin to fall over. nan15 is an ever expandable set of shelves, which also functions as a room divider. The clever arrangement of base and back makes both sides of the shelves an attractive structure in any living room or office.

Specifications: sheet steel 2 mm, colour powder-coated

'Pure' by Pastoe

The new cabinet system ‘Pure’ by the Dutch manufacturer Pastoe lives up to its name.

There is a choice of standing cabinet or hanging cabinet, with a variety of dimensions. ‘Pure’ comes with doors, flaps or drawers; with or without one of the two types of handle.
