The event for new furniture accross the globe, Milan in 2016 did not dissappoint. Here are just a few products that caught my eye, and will begin to feature on our web site in the coming months. The Hole table for Kristalia, designed by Kensaku Oshiro is a table with a sculptural base made from sheet steel, which has been moulded, joined and bent using many processes. The top is available in a thin laminate, or thicker solid wood. Not another swivel chair you might say, but Myplace by Michael Geldmacher for LaCividina, is simply elegant.
Available in a number of variants, with arms or not, wings or not, headrest or not, the chair has multiple uses both at home, and in a contract environment. Although not a year for lighting, I couldn't resist this modern interpretation of the Medieval Candelabra, called Epsilon, with a hand brushed brass finish, and utilising a series of halogen point lights to imitate the candles, the result is spectacular!
The Dorian mirror from Fiam can be hung vertically or horizontally, and has a gently crumpled frame in temperature fused glass, designed by Massimo Iosa Ghini, in two sizes, I am confident this will rival the Caadre mirror for popularity in the years to come. These Doppler cabinets by Guiseppe Vigano for Bonaldo are nothing if not bold, and the doors open in line with the graphic design to reinforce these statement pieces. These Quo stacking chairs by Martin Ballendat for Tonon, are available in many vibrant colours of moulded foam, with a real twist in the back!
