Through joy and elegance, the bathroom can be elevated to the same level of importance as the living room. Hayon brings his characterful design and the idea of elegance to the bathroom, with the same attention to craft and emotion as he applies to lounge chairs and sofas. Hayon brings 10 years of further development to bear in a new bathroom collection, through noble materials such as marble, wood, and of course stainless steel. Materico brings glamour – together with function – back to bathrooms.

The new product family designed by David Chipperfield, consisting of a solid wood table, bench and stool, distinctly features the pure use of material and a clear design language, which are shared aesthetics of e15 and David Chipperfield. Originally conceived for an architectural project in the English countryside, the table FAYLAND elegantly highlights linear forms and a clear structural concept. Oriented to the design of table FAYLAND, David Chipperfield completes the solid wood family for e15 with bench FAWLEY and stool LANGLEY.
The versatility of furniture for the changing work and domestic space has lead to the development of the ‘tool’ adjustable side table. The aim was to create a surface in which people could be freed from their office desks, offering them the possibility to easily connect their work area to any type of furniture or person. Integrating a lever with a smooth vertical operation offers ease in modifying the height of the surface.

The Kuskoa collection is inspired by the first plastic chairs designed by Robin Day. But in this case, all the chair is crafted out of wood, providing a warm appearance, comfort and resistance. The shell, front upholstered or fully in wood, perches delicately on a frame of solid wood.

The ILLUM collection is series of outdoor furniture designed by Merckx+Maes for Tribù. The collection refers to classical furniture archetypes, translated with updated materials for the outdoors. The emphasis for the collection is on comfort, ergonomics and usability. The low sculpted back of the chair allows for comfortable seating for many hours. Easily stacked, the chair can be put away during colder months. The sun lounger not only inclines, but also lowers itself to offer a matchless comfort, while all the mechanics involved are astutely hidden away. The table tops are available in ceramics and teak. The various sizes available for the table include a more narrow option to fit balconies.

Homes no longer follow the lounge + dining room + kitchen formula. The various living uses flow into each other more and more, which puts different demands on the furniture. Tables in particular have to be multi-talented; they not only have to be a traditional kitchen table but a desk, work bench, meeting place and dining table as well… and sometimes all at the same time. The Drawer table is one of those all-rounders. It looks like a simple, modern table, but it hides an impressive secret: virtually invisible drawers that are small enough to not have to compromise on leg room and big enough to be able to put away or get out laptops, placemats, cutlery, and all those things that are always lying around, like keys, pens, paperwork or phone chargers.

The highlight of the family of robust, but delicate pieces is a symbolic bowl, which references the structural achievements made in the construction of the grand amphitheatre, the Colosseum, in the Italian capital.

Flue is simple and minimalistic containers, it has three different size and each piece is made of different material. Giving each container a unique character. Use Flue individually as a vase, a container or combining all together to make a sculptural object.

His houses flooded with light, Neutra shaped the scene of Californian Modernism. From there he rose to be an architectural icon embodying the “International Style”. Today, Richard J. Neutra, who died in 1970, has long been seen as one of the great names in the history of modern architecture. This pioneer of Modernism can now be rediscovered as a furniture designer: The individual items or small series production developed by Neutra for clients commissioning his house designs are now manufactured and sold exclusively by VS. The Neutra Furniture Collection by VS came into being through collaboration with Dion Neutra, the son and architectural partner of Richard Neutra.

Geometry Stool is composed of a half split log of Japanese cypress and a copper round rod. The copper round rod acts as a joint for connecting each half split log, therefore the tangent point of two different materials where logically meet in section has generated geometrical configuration.
