'Lots of Paper' limited edition seat by Cecilie Manz
Reminiscent of a supersized origami structure, this intricately engineered and executed, crisp white limited edition seat has been created in 2011 by the acclaimed Danish designer Cecilie Manz. Made of the environmentally-friendly, high-quality uncoated 400 gram Arctic Paper Munken, the complex form of ‘Lots of Paper’ was achieved through the process of tessellation. (more…)
'SuperSputnik' stool by Ahmet Sismanoglu for Sisman
Inspired by the unmistakable form of the famous Soviet satellite launched in 1957, ‘SuperSputnik’ is an extremely reduced, three-legged stool designed by a Germany-based engineer, designer and producer Ahmet Sismanoglu for his own company, Sisman. Delicate in its pared-down appearance , the stool weights a mere 2kg but is in fact very sturdy due to the carefully-calculated ‘wire frame that offers a flexible seat top into bending and turning direction but remaining stiff vertically up to 300kg.’ (more…)
'Ova' easy chair by Christian Dorn for Stiltreu
Following an ‘idea is to design a timeless piece of furniture with transient smooth shape from simple, soft geometry’, German designer Christian Dorn has created this armchair for Stiltreu – a design studio he co-founded last year. Featuring a powder-coated steel frame (available in five different colours) and upholstered polyurethane foam seat and backrest, ‘Ova’ easy chair is part of a seating collection which also encompasses a two- and three-seater versions of the design.

'Within' seat / side table by Studio Vision; photo by Helena Winberg & Anna Kjernsvik
At first glance clinically plain and unassuming, when opened, this two-piece minimalist, geometric seat-cum- side table reveals an angular, sculpture-like structure which contrasts with the design’s otherwise unadorned exterior. Created by a young Swedish designer and founder of Studio Vision, Mattias Stenberg, the aptly-named ‘Within’ was presented earlier last week in Stockholm Furniture Fair’s hall for independent designers and design schools, Greenhouse.

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.
'The Mountain' by Tom Kühne
The Berlin based designer Tom Kühne is known for his narrative and fraught with meaning objects. With his newest works he again created dwelling objects that move away from the established prospect.
The massive ‘Mountain’ made from solid wood plays with our associations and perception this scenic topos evokes – Tom Kühne places it with all its monumental sublimeness as an archaic symbol into our daily ambience and uses the solid compound to create a new spatial structure.
'Bench between pillars' by Ryuji Nakamura Architects
The Tokyo based practice Ryuji Nakamura Architects realised this minimal seating area for the Ikebukuro Seibu Department Stores. A wide ribbon made from vinyl sheet is – like a hammock – regularly suspended from the ceiling.
'Jack Black' by Tom Dixon for Tom Dixon
There are many reasons for reissuing a design, but getting your hands on the original tool to make it is as good as any. Armed once more with the tooling that he himself fashioned back in the day in his own workshop, Tom Dixon has launched a black companion piece to his iconic, stackable ‘Jack Light’ (the latter manufactured by Eurolounge), whose colour serves to emphasise the product’s strongly graphic form. Made from plastic and rotary-moulded, ‘Jack Black’ can be used as seating or as an accessory, and comes without a light.
Tom Dixon's 'Jack Black' works particularly well as a companion piece to the existing 'Jack Light'
