921 Lama Lounge chair from Zanotta

921 Lama, by Ludovica + Roberto Palomba, for Zanotta

Dr. Yes by Philippe Starck & Eugeni Quitllet

Dr. Yes is a counterpoint to Dr No. The inner part of the chair has an opaque finish, almost resembling a soft fabric, while the surface of the back and the legs is glossy. The distinguishing features of the chair are its comfort, ease of cleaning and wide range of colours.

Lounge with Philippe Starck—Privé Collection

Alongside the traditional sofa, enriched with copious cushions and a variety of arm options, there are large upholstered island surfaces, real atolls, than you can sink onto and take up any posture you like with the help of strategic support units of adjustable height and angle of inclination. All or this series seating surfaces are done in soft quilted leather or fabric.

Sumo Armchair by Xavier Lust

The fusion of a sphere and a cube – the base concept for the formal development of the line – creates external swellings that reveal a tension trapped inside the mass. When they are being used the pieces seem to lower themselves to envelope us in a welcoming hug. The design evokes the power, balance, and serenity of a Sumo wrestler.

Dis the Office Chair by Mario Ruiz

With a torsion-flexible backrest providing comfort, Dis is built for adaptable situations, with its angular looks, it may fit well in a home office as well.

Dis, by Mario Ruiz, for Dynamobel

Ledge Angled Shelving by Kazuhiro Yamanaka

The shape of the shelving unit recalls rocks rising steeply out of the sea, natural cliff faces created by the constant action of waves and strong winds. To change the oblique angle from right to left or vice versa, simply turn the shelving unit upside down.
