Smith is available in one size and can be fitted with two differently sized backrests which can take several positions on the bench, with just one move.

Splinter, by Mia Cullin
A ceiling fixture that places a floating assembly of large pebbles below a simple aluminium disc. These in turn reflect each other, bouncing light between their taught biomorphic surfaces and reflecting the environment around them. During the day the piece acts as a sculptural object reflecting the dynamics of natural light and the movement of people around them.

Vases are part of the collection “oggetti lenti” (Slow Objects), in reference to the slowness with which Pierre Charpin designed them. “They are present while seeming detached from this world, they are both concrete and abstract, their presence is simultaneously concise and undecided. The “Oggetti Lenti” occupy an indeterminate place between what already exists, what is still unfamiliar to us. These “Slow Objects” gradually find their place in the uncertainty of our present time.”
