A young German cabinetmaker and product designer Andreas Mikutta has recently realised this subtle and beautifully simple daybed made out of soap-treated ash wood. Almost ascetic in its appearance, the austerity of ‘Pause’ is softened by a stack of richly coloured pure wool and leather cushions which contrast with and liven the charcoal grey of the mattress and the subdued hue of the wooden frame. Aimed to ‘advocate calmness and tranquility in life’, the daybed was presented at the [D³] Contest during this year’s edition of imm cologne. (more…)

'Hat-Hat' by Katrin Greiling

Commissioned in connection to the Wallpaper exhibition “Handmade” in Milan, the German-Swedish designer Katrin Greiling created this new piece of furniture for both sitting and sleeping, inspired by the bedouins way of furnishing their tents: “when the tent is set up and the carpets rolled out the saddle is taken off the camel and put inside the tent and functions as leaning support whilst sitting on the floor. The name ‘Hat-Hat’ derives from the phrase the Bedouins use to get the camels to move.”

”To live in a foreign culture presents fantastic opportunities to apply my own Scandinavian expression on the new, the result is unexpected design related discoveries and subjective interpretations” says Katrin Greiling.

It is not the first time Katrin Greiling finds inspiration in nomadic culture. Deviding her time between Dubai and Stockholm, she is working with both Swedish and international producers. Her sofa Bedouin was for example used in the United Emirates pavillion during the Venice biennal last year.

'Drop' seat/daybed by Leonardo Perugi for Cerruti Baleri

'Drop' seat/daybed by Leonardo Perugi for Cerruti Baleri

Italian design manufacturer Cerruti Baleri has launched a new seat/daybed at the 2010 Maison et Objet fair in Paris. Called ‘Drop’ and designed by architect Leonardo Perugi, its reduced, highly geometric form invites the user to transform its shape according to their mood.

The drop-like shape of the head pillow has both an aesthetic and a practical function. Through a geometric fit, it structurally locks the seat in its closed position without the need for any fastening device.


In interview with Dailytonic at Maison et Objet, Perugi explained that ‘Drop’ ‘is something you can use as a suit. You wear this piece. It’s for you, your body, your life. You can use it to create new situations. It’s not a fossil or a museum piece. It’s to be used every day. Like a garment.’

Perugi is flattered by comments that his design is reminsicent of the ‘radicalism and informalism’, as he describes it, of 1960s Italian furniture design. ‘Many people say this is from the 60s and link it to the work of Joe Colombo,’ he told Dailytonic. ‘I’m very proud of this. It’s a huge compliment for me. Although, it’s a big responsibility and there’s pressure to do something even better next time.’
