Croatioan Pavilion, photo by Zelimir Grzancic

This year’s Croatian Pavilion for the Biennale of Venice was designed by a group of 14 leading Croatian architects, amongst them our friends of 3LHD Architects. The floating construction was built up on an existing barge in the harbour of Reijka and was afterwards shipped through the Adriatic Sea to Venice. The structure is welded from 30 tons of Q385 wire mesh in more than 40 layers, they form – due to varying contours – the interior spaces. The Pavilion with the Croatian exhibition is open at the Croatian venue at the Arsenale.


'Out_line' armchair

This series of well-proportioned wire chairs was designed by the young Valencia based designer Nieves Contreras for the Spanish manufacturer Expormim. Due to their finish with a double layer zinc paint and polyester powder the chairs are water resistant and suitable for outdoor use. ‘Out_line’ is available in two different versions: with a seat and backrest made from 6 mm wire or woven with high resistance rope of polyester.


'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.


'Penny' by Globe Zero 4

The Danish design duo Busk Hertzog designed this light and simple occasional table for Globe Zero 4 (a company founded in 2008 when the two Danish brands Globe Furniture and Zero 4 merged and became one shared collection). The filigree structure of the ‘Penny’ builds a perfect contrast to the colourful and ample upholstery Busk Hertzog and Globe Zero 4 have developed years ago.


'Tension Table' by Alain Gilles

The Belgian designer Alain Gilles realised this series of coffee tables for the newly opened Galerie Gosserez in Paris. It is made from a decent wire frame and a folded sheet metal top.

“Visually, the aim of the project is to create a sense of tension and weightlessness, as if the tables were resting on one leg only”, the designer explains.

'Siluet' by Stephanie Estoppey

Silently and almost invisibly ‘Siluet’, the decent wire wardrobe by the Swiss designer Stephanie Estoppey brings order into the bedroom. Shaped like a backrest of the chair (we usually use for this purpose) ‘Siluet’ is an airy alternative for temporary storage and an adequate stage for your one’s favourite garment.

'SP-7' coffee table or stool by Schwab / Panther

‘My Bauhaus is better than yours’ is a collective of independent designers, most of them graduates from Bauhaus Universität Weimar. At this year’s DMY festival the designer duo Schwab / Panther, founded by Flo Schwab and Georg Panther, presented this delicate coffee table made from only four pieces of bent wire and a selectable top. The frame is held together only by tension and pressure.
