The arrangement of the legs on this table affords a maximum space for legroom. Due to the tangential deviation and by incorporated an enforcing core the elegant construction guarantees extraordinary stability. The shape of the legs together with the rounded corners of the table top result in a fresh and contemporary feel.

With an unexpected play of chromatic reflections, this mirror is made with shiny ground edge and an overlapping transparent extra-light tempered glass slab, in the centre of whom a white mirror on the front side and a coloured mirror on the back side are placed. The mirror is supported by four chromium plated metal brackets.

Like an organically growing structure, a complex form develops out of a suprisingly simple element. Available in white, ruby red and chrome plastic modules – each with three light bulbs – which can be added to each other, so the ligthing object can vary in size, from a single format up to a cluster.

A good idea doesn’t take up much space – just a piece of paper or a laptop. Christoph Böninger’s Zelos secretary desk reflects this reduction to the essentials. With its pared-down elegance, it meets all the functional requirements of the laptop generation.
You have seen the Mercury light by Artemide where each piece acts as a sculptural object reflecting the dynamics of natural light and the movement of people. Ross Lovegrove has since created Skydro a similar concept, but more er, blobular.
