Joiin Lamps by Pallucco

Joiin includes a series of curved surfaces that couple together to shade its light source. Up to three of these lampshades may be connected allowing their surfaces to interact, folding into itself like a ribbon of light.
The textile used to cover the shade comes finely coated with tiny glass beads, appearing white like frost, when viewed from an angle. Therefore the lamp catches attention even when switched off since its surface reflects the light sources from the environment.

Mobius Coffee Table by Kristalia

Surfaces usually have two sides, however the designers were inspired by the geometric shape called a Mobius Strip. This occasional table in bent sheet metal with black or white lacquer finish, is perfect for small and large spaces and it comes in two sizes.

Outdoor Benches by David Scott

Designed to be a sculptural form of intersecting angular planes, the SKEW-001 draws inspiration from geological rock formations and also suggests movement. The 3SR combines clean lines and a framed opening for stones or shallow rooted flora such as grasses.
The Plateau line is constructed from 100% certified eco-friendly renewable cellulose fiber and resin compressed together to form a solid slab. The result is a sleek black surface with the weight of stone and the warmth of wood. All the tables and benches that make up the Plateau line are suitable for indoor as well as outdoor use.

Cemia by Peter Maly for ligne roset

Peter Maly designed the Cemia bed to complement the range of storage of the same name. Wholly without embellishment or unnecessary trappings of luxury, it is comfortably soft, yet with clean, functional lines. In Cemia, Peter Maly has achieved a highly successful synthesis between the minimalism of the 1990’s and the organic forms of the 1960’s. The headboard is offered in two widths, allowing the bed to suit rooms of varying sizes. The bed frame is also available without the headboard. When combined with the bedside tables, chests of drawers and wardrobes of the Cemia range of storage, bedrooms of a particularly harmonious, peaceful nature are created.

Silver Sunday Easy Chair by Interstuhl

Hadi Teherani has extended the Silver range. Those who work hard also need rest and relaxation, so it was logical to develop an armchair offering users supreme comfort and top class design for waiting, relaxing of an evening or simply everyday sitting. And so an easy chair was born, soon to be available in the “Silver” design and either low or high-backed. The swivel armchair is beautifully sprung and rests on an elegant three-legged stand. The aluminium frame and upholstery draw on the characteristic design features of previous Silver models. A u-shaped stool complements the armchair, and can also be used as a small side table.
