'Family Chair' by Junya Ishigami for Living Divani

The Tokyo based architect and designer Junya Ishigami created amongst others this series of wire chairs for the Italian manufacturer Living Divani. The clearly distorted shape turns the minimalist archetype into a playful family of ironic figures.


'Torso' by Potocco

The company history of the Udine based manufacturer Potocco is exemplary for the North Italian furniture industry: Founded in 1919 by Domenico Potocco and his sons as a small artisan workshop Potocco S.p.A. is nowadays one of the most important chair producers in Italy and abroad.

One of the newest creations is ‘Torso’ a furniture family which consists of a round dining room table and an upholstered chair. The eye-catching table’s wooden base is composed of two different precisely milled elements. Connected to one another through a metal joint they form a complex and statically higly stable structure.


'Axis' new version by Acerbis

The Italian design duo Gabriele and Oscar Buratti developed this stainless steel dining room table for Acerbis. In order to support the thin top in an aerial and visibly light way, the flat legs are placed onto different perpendicular axes. At this year’s Milan fair Acerbis presented a new version with back-lacquered glass top.


'Totem' by Vincent van Duysen for Pastoe

The Dutch manufacturer Pastoe presented this modular shelving system by the Belgian architect Vincent van Duysen. Stacked to a colourful tower ‘Totem’ lives up to its name. The bodies of the cabinet can be turned independently of each other and are divided into segments by rails. They can be open or closed on one side and you can put horizontal shelves in them.


'Paper Planes' by Nipa Doshi Jonathan Levien

The Indian born designer and graduate from Royal College of Art graduate Nipa Doshi Jonathan Levien realised this series of armchairs for the Italian manufacturer Moroso. The paper thin structure is based on a steel frame and cold-cured polyurethane foam upholstery. The cover is available in two versions: Either in a printed Kvadrat remix fabric with Swarovski crystal applications, or in Jacquard. The geometric pattern underlines the light, apparently folded seat shell.

The Paris based brothers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec designed this table lamp for the British manufacturer Established & Sons. Its glass lampshade is manufactured in cooperation with the traditional Italian glassblowers of Venini – a voluminous round glass structure only supported by a delicate aluminium stick and without any contact to the base.
