studioilse: companions + sidekicks


london-based studioilse presents new collections of furniture, ‘companions’ and ‘sidekicks’ for de la espada on show at london design week 2011 and valencia disseny week 2011.

the ‘companions’ family of furniture consists of a bed and bedside table available in white oiled chestnut with cork bowls which act as storage for small objects. a slim writing desk also accompanies the collection, proportioned to fit within different spaces. the desk also has similar storage containers for wires and plugs with a top that can close to hide papers and laptops.
