Stack is a playful product for the discerning design conscious. Formed of solid cylindrical building blocks in vibrant hues and muted neutral tones. Stack can be assembled and rearranged in a limitless array of combinations to complement any setting and satisfy any mood. Made in Britain from solid machined aluminum. Stack’s reassuring weight speaks a quality. Its smooth, frosted, anodised finish creates a lustrous matte sheen that is pleasingly cool to the touch.
“I wanted to create a luxurious product that allows discriminating consumers to play a part in the design. The accent here is on quality and precision, with pieces that look and feel great and fit together absolutely perfectly, however they are combined.”

On the occasion of the Biennial Event, Designers’ Saturday in Langenthal, Switzerland, Axor – the designer brand from Hansgrohe – has shown the results of a collaborative project by the Bouroullec brothers and students of ECAL University of Art and Design, Lausanne, Switzerland. The young designers were asked to reinterpret and develop objects around the Axor Bourollec bathroom collection, which was serving as a starting point for each participant. The collective body of work aims to illustrate the individual needs of the bathroom space.

Working in collaboration with Christophe Delcourt, Cristian Zuzunaga has created a special edition Imaginatio fabric is sold exclusively on Declourt’s products.
A series of sideboards and wardrobes inspiring to ancient swords, redesigned with a rigorous graphical point of view. All finished in laminated mirror sheets and lacquered in various colors inside, polished or matte.
This project is a tribute to Excalibur, originally Caliburn, drawn from the tip of the spear with which Longino pierced the side of Christ and forged by Merlin. “The Kings’ Sword” makes its possessor invincible. Famous for its supernatural strength, it originated many other swords, all invariably imbued with mysterious magical powers.
The utophic sum of the three elements ideally recreates the sword.

The newest additions to the Maruni Wood Industry collection is the ‘Hiroshima’ series, a small table and new Flanno fabric made in Denmark.
The new ‘Hiroshima’ small table, fits easily into any room, and matches the accompanying ‘Hiroshima’ small chair that was presented earlier this year. It is available in two widths; 85 x 85 cm square or 130 x 85 cm rectangle. The radius of the curved line that connects the table leg and apron, match that of the small chair’s curved line, seen in the corner of which the leg and the seat’s top rail connect.

Inspired by computer punch cards, Jean Nouvel’s Hook is a storage surface, with flexible shelves and containers that hang from hidden joints.
“Creating architecture,” affirms Jean Nouvel, “means imbuing personal’s creation, be it a building, a piece of furniture or a garden, with the values of one’s own culture and civilization.” When he designs an object or a piece of furniture, the architect first thinks about functionality and about achieving an “elementary design” that corresponds to the essence of things.

The sculptural shape of Diva gives the user multiple seating possibilities–either you can lounge in the seat with your feet resting on the integrated footrest or you just linger on the spacious seat and when having your laptop around you use the footrest as an expanded ‘working place’. Either way the sculptural seat will be an eye-catcher for your interior.
