the eiermann table is a real classic in furniture design history. the original table frame was designed in 1953 for german designer egon eiermann’s own office, the cross in one piece, placed diagonally between the sides. for many years the original version seemed to have vanished. richard lampert received sole manufacturing rights for the eiermann table series in 1995 by the eiermann family.

the rattan chair is another eiermann milestone of furniture design. it has been developed by observing the craftsmanship of the weavers, through the understanding of the construction processes and capabilities of the material.

these chairs bear little resemblance to the classical colonial or finca-style furniture made of rattan. the chair is also available in weather resistant and easy to clean polyethylen fiber.

‘tie break’ chair – bertjan pot, 2012 



tie break combines tennis netting, safety belts and flat-rolled steel in a very unconventional way. an extremely comfortable outdoor chair that needs no additional cushions and does not have to be taken inside when it’s raining: it can simply stay outside the whole year round.

doshi levien’s rocker features a plastic hourglass-shaped body that rests simply on two wooden runners, promising hours of rocking fun, and, at the same time, being a piece that is as much a design object as it is a plaything.

  • Lovely, fun and refreshing pieces. And, so nice to see a smiling designer rather than all of those serious serious people. As refreshing as his talent and product.
