'Maritime S' chair by Benjamin Hubert for Casamania

Following his 2011 solid timber ‘Martime’ chair design, the award-winning British industrial designer Benjamin Hubert has updated the last year’s version of the chair by lining its inner shell with upholstered panels in either leather or Kvadrat’s 100 % wool Divina MD textile. Launched earlier in April at Milan’s Salone del Mobile, the chair is manufactured by the Italian furniture brand Casamania. (more…)

'The Hardwearing' by Henrik Tjærby, curated by Søren Rose; photo by Angela Moore

On the occasion of Milan’s Salone del Mobile, the renowned, family-run textile brand Kvadrat has invited a number of internationally acclaimed designers who, under the guidance of seven curators, were commissioned to reinterpret one of Kvadrat’s most iconic upholstery fabrics, Hallingdal 65, in a modern concept. Among the 32 designers from across Europe, USA and Asia were some of today’s best and brightest talents in product and industrial design such as New Yorker Stephen Burks, Vienna-based Studio mischer’traxler or the Parisian designer Ionna Vautrin, to name just a few while Tord Boontje, Ilse Crawford, Søren Rose, Hans Maier-Aichen, Constance Rubini, Andre Fu and Jeffrey Bernett were appointed as curators. ‘Hallingdal 65’ exhibition was on view between 17 – 22 April on Milan’s Via Luca Beltrami and will now be presented during the ICFF fair in New York (18 – 22 May) in Jil Sander Showroom, 30 Howard Street.

Chair by Jaime Hayón for &tradition

The renowned Spanish designer and artist Jaime Hayón has collaborated with the Danish furniture brand &tradition on a new chair design whose prototype was presented at Spazio Hayón in Milan’s Ventura Lambrate. Inspired by ‘the harmony of curves’, the chair’s curvilinear, injection-moulded shell is available in variety of colours and materials: ‘from a basic naked shell to quality Kvadrat wool upholstery and a luxurious leather alternative.’ (more…)

Cristian Zuzunaga's new urban-landscape-inspired collection for Danish design-textile brand Kvadrat, shown at their London showroom during the 2010 London Design Festival

In the (unfortunate) hierarchy of design disciplines – just ask any architect and they’ll confirm this – textile design has traditionally occupied a less-than-superior position. Spanish-born Londoner Cristian Zuzunaga has been troubling the creative order of things recently, however, with his conceptually and technically innovative work for such leading textile manfuacturers as Kvadrat and Nanimarquina. The interesting thing, though, is that he’s not a textile designer, at least in terms of training. Architonic met up with Zuzunaga at the Design Post in Cologne during this year’s Orgatec fair to pick at some threads. (more…)

The back of AVL Couch slides from left to right or in neutral position

A seating family consisting of a large couch, a medium couch, a fauteuil and two poufs of different sizes, which adapts itself to the moment and the situation. That’s the best description of the new design from Joep van Lieshout for Lensvelt. Strictly realistic shapes with weighed use of material and functionality.
The back slides from left to right or in neutral position, so that the desirable setting can be achieved.
