Kamkam is a design collective located in Seoul, Korea that includes Hyunjin Seo, Jaekyoung Kim, and Jaehoon Jung. Their Dressed Up Furniture looks like playful kid furniture but for adults! The idea is to combine clothing and furniture, making the pieces soft and approachable, and also interactive using fasteners such as buttons. The theme of “Dressed-up furniture series” is to combine clothes and furniture. It will make you feel fresh by mixing the familiar elements of normal actions like fastening a button and daily furniture like stool, storage and bench.
A backrest, seat or protective shelter, Jonas Lyndby Jensen’s “Twist Chair” is something that would make an amazing accent seat for a bedroom. A creative addition to circular or curvilinear interior themes, the fabric choice, by Morten la Cour, was actually chosen because it echoes the naturalistic, protective design of a bird’s nest. Originally developed for use in a public library, the Twisted Chair is built from a single twisted band and has the added bonus of serving as a sound barrier for people who are interested in stealing away moments of quiet isolation to read their newest books on the Eames design process or check on up Freshome from their laptops.
Created by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe for the German Pavilion at the 1929 Barcelona Exposition, the Barcelona couch features the hand-buffed frame and hand-pieced leatherwork of traditional craftsmanship.
Fabio Novembre presents RPH – Revolutions Per Hour, a large sofa that can exist as a unit or in several separate parts. Its distinctive character comes from the ends that resemble two deign archetypes: the Cubetto armchair and Le Corbusiers chaise-longue. The formal play is developed in the upholstery: one has a seat in black and white fabric with red sides – like a Valentino 1950′s cocktail party dress; the second is in grey crinkled, felt fabric with a rock-like effect.
Simple blocks that rise up directly from the floor, like an iceberg with shapes that are both dynamic and impressive, coming together to produce different combinations. This is the concept of Polar, an original and versatile system for creating decors that are always new. The seats and backs, with frame in wood and differentiated density foam filling, can be combined to create six sofa types, all with solid volumes and oblique cuts for a constantly changing and constantly moving space.
A continuous form which combines aesthetics and ergonomic features. Moon System expresses the happy meeting of attitude and experimentation typical of B&B Italia and Zaha Hadid, world famous architect, whose work has been exploring the complexity of curved geometry for several years. The concept of seating, in its most traditional sense, is radically undermined by the creation of an angular, highly dynamic form: a single shape which contains the back, the seating, and the armrests as if â€œsculptedâ€ from a single block. Metallic as if it had just arrived from outer space, Moon System is best placed at the centre of a room from where its fluid, expressive curves can be admired from new viewpoints. The system is complete with footrest, whose shape perfectly integrates with the form of the sofa.
Pol is a sofa with a light chrome steel structure and a backrest and seat in expanded polyurethane, each consisting in a single padded element. Two simple armless elements, one practically fitted onto the other; an austere design which is softened exclusively by the hint of a curve at the ends. An object which reflects a contemporary lifestyle, and personalises permanent or temporary locations making them ultra-functional.
We love the new version ”glossy black” of the famous Rocking chair Voido. Originally conceived in blow moulding, Voido was presented at the 2005 Furniture Fair in a â€œmould testingâ€ phase under which it suffered greatly. Underestimated by Magis and Arad alike, the latter of whom jokingly wrote on the prototype, â€œThis is not rotation moulding! First attempt in big scale blow moulding. Almost there!â€ But not a thing could be done to alleviate the technical suffering, as trial after trial made evident. So the Voidoblow moulding combination was given up in exchange for rotational moulding that features new and decidedly superior aesthetics. Now Voido is ready for the market. A sculpture by Ron Arad.
“Pop is the first couch “”flexible to infinity”", easily removable, it is done industriellement. Pop consists of identical modules transparent polycarbonate, ci – those can be arranged etassortis to infinity and form when they are reunited, the structure takes the sofa : the dossier, the seat-formed plastic crib-and armrests. A highly customizable sofa whose length can vary depending on your needs and which is proving more indestructible : it supports indeed shocks like the most intense solicitations. Much cushions goose feathers, particularly mellow, adorning the structure and provide comfort and a highly curvilinear shape. Several coatings are available : jeans or black leather, especially soft, it has a multitude of personalities while preserving the identity of the project.”
Innovation, experimentation of the materials and forms, Ron Arad does not stop to surprise us! One loves this new line of seats MT (of which the exact pronunciation in English is empty) to the hollow form put in value by a plastic two-tone polymere. Completely realized in polyethylene molded by rotation, this sofa is cut while adapting the theoretical trace to the real dimensions of the product, and that thanks to the technologies the most advanced. The collection MT understands equally a sofa and a superb rocking chair. They exist in 3 combinations of colors: white exterior orange interior, exterior red black interior, exterior blue blue green interior. Innovative and very astonishing, MT furnishes your interiors and your exterior with character!
