ADAL weaves new furniture from natural forms and materials at milan design week

during milan design week 2019, japanese brand ADAL will ‘look into nature‘ with its latest collection of furniture pieces that draw from the natural world, both in their materiality and form. the collection, which includes a line of lounge chairs, benches, sofas, side tables and multi-use modular panels, is made mainly in igusa – the traditional panels in woven rush, with which tatamis are made – in combination with wood, and, in smaller parts, steel.

founded in 1953, ADAL embodies the connection of japanese design with natural, functional and versatile pieces defined by their elegant minimalism. the brand’s latest collection further emphasizes this relationship by drawing from the natural environment in its forms, including waterfalls, caves, and the mountains’ sense of quietness, as well as in its materials with the predominant use of igusa.
