‘Cordula’ floor lamp by Stephanie Jasny

Inspired by the form of an ordinary cable reel, a young Munich-born designer Stephanie Jasny has realised this small floor lamp called ‘Cordula.’ The light features a seven-meters-long cable that can be conveniently looped around the steel body of the design while the pivot jont enables the light to be rotated and positioned at various angles. Conceived as part of Jasny’s graduate project back in 2009, ‘Cordula’ has since been put into production by the French furniture manufacturer Ligne Roset. (more…)

‘Elysée’ armchairs by Pierre Paulin reissued by Ligne Roset

The French furniture manufacturer Ligne Roset has reissued this bold seating collection originally created by the late, much-acclaimed designer Pierre Paulin for the presidential Elysée Palace. Comprising an armchair, a footstool and a small settee model, ‘Elysée’ series has been reconstructed from Paulin’s plans using new materials such as multi-density polyurethane foam for increased comfort and durability. The range, which initially was developed in muted oatmeal shades, has now been released in vividly coloured wools and each of the models can also be upholstered in leather. (more…)

Detail view of the 'Picnic' side table by GamFratesi for Ligne Roset

Stine Gam and Enrico Fratesi, a duo architects behind the Copenhagen-based design studio GamFratesi have created this bold, black-stained ash side table whose form resembles that of a traditional sewing box or a picnic basket. Released this year by the French manufacturer Ligne Roset, the design encompasses a generous storage compartment located beneath the tabletop. (more…)

'Simplissimo' collection by Jean Nouvel for Ligne Roset

The Parisian Pritzker-prize-winning architect Jean Nouvel has designed this ‘fitness-inspired’ series of smart, minimalist furniture for the renowned French manufacturer Ligne Roset. Aptly called ‘Simplissimo’, the pared-down collection consists of banquette, chaise longue, fireside chair, footstool and bench, all of which are made of soft, black upholstery, which ‘hugs the curves of the metal structure and deliberately allows gathers in the four corners, which contribute to the overall aesthetic of the model.’ (more…)

'Grillage' by François Azambourg for Ligne Roset

This simple but formally elaborate lounge chair for the French manufacturer Ligne Roset was created by the Paris based designer François Azambourg. ‘Grillage’ consists of tabular steel base and a seating made from elegantly folded expanded sheet metal. The overlapping grid creates a beautiful spacial structure and moiré pattern.


'Ruché' by Inga Sempé for Ligne Roset

In addition to last year’s ‘Ruché’ sofa the French designer Inga Sempé realised together with Ligne Roset the adapted bed, available in two heights. It will be on show at this year’s imm cologne (Hall 11.3, O 020 / P 021) which open its gates tomorrow. See you there.


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…)
