‘kouch & ouch’, sofa and armchair by karim rashid

‘lobby’ chair by stokkeaustad

the extruded armrests delineate an area into which the user enters when they sit down. the same armrests also offer comfort and an inviting space whilst adding a distinctive character to the chair. the form of the chair is clear and decisive with a strong profile and clean lines while the inside is softer and moulded to accomodate the user. ‘lobby’ chair by stokkeaustad

‘meduse’, coffee tables by gamplusfratesi

a series of coffee tables based on the shape of jellyfish. the typical soft and smooth body encloses an internal structure, from which the tentacles are suspended. the tables are entirely made of metal; a steel structure with a top crafted from pressed sheet metal.

‘nuance’, chair by luca nichetto

nuance is a new concept in upholstered seating. nuance is available in two versions: one designed to be used with a table, and a ‘lounge’ version- lower and wider.

‘urban’ shelving unit

the urban shelving unit was born from a simple concept: a single module capable of functioning as a bookshelf with the added possibility of adding extra modules to create unique compositions.  the ‘l’ shaped module measuring 140x 35cm can be used in any position. a system without hooks or joins allows the user to create walls, screens, horizontal and vertical elements; angles, benches, entertainment systems.
