Alcova Canopy Bed by Maxalto

The classic canopy bed in a modern interpretation, suitable to be positioned mid-room; base frame and headboard in leather or fabric. The bed rests on a platform which is large enough to position a storage element with an open compartment and a drawer at the foot of the bed. One single large size and four different finishes: brushed light and black oak, grey and brown oak. While maintaining the structural characteristics of a canopy bed, another version is now available, Alcova. The new bed is smaller in size with the headboard and mattress box higher than the original version. The protruding base has also been eliminated. The easily removable covers are finished with exquisite needlework. In natural grey, brown, black oak or wengé.

Button Side Table by Fredrik Wærnes

Button is a side table developed with the purpose to provide versatility in the living space. With the removable table top it can also be used as a serving tray and adapts to the user’s wish. The centered handle makes it easy to move and it also becomes a visual feature in itself.

Keel Table by Form Us With Love for De Padova

During the Salone Del Mobile, De Padova launched the Keel table, FUWL’s first collaboration with the legendary Italian design house. The simple table idea is based on observation of sailboats. The vertical divider inserted in the table is like the centerboard that crosses the keel of a boat. The colored wooden part at the center adds stability and crosses the whole structure, a single piece of curved wood that makes the table balanced and elegant.

Marionet by Simon Busse for Mox

The name giver of Marionet shows how to do it: only the connections between the (body) parts, joints and threads hold together the marionette; if one of the components is missing it collapses. This principle is equally applicable to the side table, which Simon Busse designed for the Mox Company: Only if all its components interact the table stands firmly. Three flat wooden legs other form the basis and are brought into position by a connective element. A hook on the top side of the connective element holds a coloured elastic band – the marionette’s string. The band runs through the wooden legs towards a tabletop and turns into a carrying handle on the upper side. In order to lock this fragile structure, the tabletop is bevelled downwards, the legs are kept in position and the entire table stands firmly.

Adhoc Storage by Bruno Fattorini & Partners for Zanotta

Storage units, made of steel sheet, that can be either open, with drawers or sliding doors. Adhoc stems from the desire to create a home furnishing system with a historically industrial material. The sheet metal has allowed working with 1.5-mm thick plates. Thanks to a special compass opening solution patented by Bruno Fattorini & Partners (patent pending No. MI2011A000131), the door folds away inside the container with no lateral encumbrance, which further minimizes the layout of the containers, already simple and linear, and lends a perception of extreme lightness.

Point by Paul Smith & Kvadrat & Fritz Hansen for Maharam

New York-based textile design company Maharam has teamed up with Fritz Hansen and Kvadrat to launch Point by Paul Smith. The upholstery textile is a mix of Smith’s signature ‘classics with a twist’ pattern.

“The idea behind this fabric came from traditional Scottish Fair Isle knitting; I love the vibrant mix of colours and patterns that Fair Isle techniques create and have used many variations of it over the years,” said Smith.

Point combines natural tones and accent colours that are available in seven geometric patterns, ranging from traditional to modern. To celebrate the launch of Point by Paul Smith, the textile will be upholstered on a selection of Fritz Hansen’s classic design icons including the Egg, Swan and Grand Prix by Arne Jacobsen and the PK22 chair by Poul Kjærholm, as well as the Alphabet Sofa by Piero Lissoni.

Flag Candlestick by Jonas Wagel for Normann Copenhagen

The Swedish designer Jonas Wagell has created this new interpretation of the classical chamber candlestick. Flag’s design was inspired by the little signal flags on floating buoys used to send signals to sailors. Designed to hold a single candle, the candlestick has a classic expression that would suit any interior style. In the old days, the chamber candlestick was used to provide light at night. Today, candlelight is used to create a warm and cosy atmosphere. With clear references to the chamber candlestick, Flag has a recognisable function and modern expression and is easily moved by picking up the little flag.
