From graphic rugs to sustainably produced sofas and sculptural portable lights: we’ve selected ten new pieces that will enrich every type of project with character.
Framed Rug by &Tradition
&Tradition has presented the new Framed rugs, which the brand developed in partnership with Danish-Swedish design studio All the Way to Paris. The simple graphic pattern is livened up by combining two different weaving techniques to create a contrast in finishes. Using New Zealand wool, the monochrome centre of the rugs is a flat-woven kilim in neutral brown shades, while the colourful elements are tufted, adding a different pile height.
Porta Table Lamp by Normann Copenhagen
In recent years, portable table lights have become a new favourite for hospitality interiors as they offer an easy way to create a more intimate lighting ambience. Normann Copenhagen has now introduced its first take on this lighting category: the Porta table light. Designed by Simon Legald, rounded corners and sculptural elements characterise the charming light. It offers three dimmer settings and is charged via USB.
Tiny Table Lamp by Ferm Living
Another small accent lamp, but very different in style: the Tiny Table Lamp by Ferm Living mixes industrial vibes with art deco look. Available in brushed brass or chrome, the shade of this slim light is tiltable, making it a wonderful choice for any space where you want to add some indirect lighting.
Helio Wall Lights by Bover
At first glance, Bover’s new Helios wall lights are simply another round wall light. But once switched on, they reveal their somewhat hidden talent: cotton threads separate the two circular wooden discs of the lampshade casting an intricate shadow mesh onto its surroundings. Designer Gonzalo Milà studied the Japanese wabi-sabi philosophy, which embraces natural imperfections and irregularities.
Flare Modular Sofa by Deadgood
Launched at our Breakfast Insights event in London, the new Flare sofa by Deadgood is the result of the British brand’s strive to adapt circular design principles. Produced in the UK, the modules sit in a frame made from metal instead of plywood. The cushions, which can be specified with a recyclable latex filling, are upholstered with Camira fabrics whose fibres are spun from recycled plastics.
Tub Bench by Schönbuch
Simple with a twist: Schönbuch extends its Tub collection, adding this bench to the collection. Designed by Sebastian Herkner, a long-time collaborator of the German brand, it features a solid, angular oak frame that's offset with a bent metal shelf. Ideal for narrow hallways in hotel rooms or hospitality spaces, the frame is available in oiled, natural oak or painted in black.
Eye Dining Chair by Ethnicraft
Belgian brand Ethnicraft presents the Eye Dining Chair. Designed by Alain van Havre, the chair with sleek, angular front legs and flowing smooth connections is made from solid oak and finished with hard wax oil. Only 49 centimetres wide, it's ideal for narrow hospitality spaces. The curved backrest, reminiscent of a winked eye, inspired the name of the chair.
Fiber Chair by Muuto
Muuto boosts its sustainability credentials: All non-upholstery editions of the Fiber chair, first launched in 2014, use now 80% recycled plastic to make the sleek shell. As the design by Iskos-Berlin is one of the most popular chairs in the Danish brand's collection, Muuto estimates this will save over 50 tons of virgin plastic in 2022. Some new plastic is still needed to guarantee long-lasting quality, as recycled plastics aren't as hardwearing as virgin material.
Speculum Side Tables by Aytm
Mirror, mirror... on all sides! Danish label Aytm has launched the Speculum side tables. Featuring mirrored sides, the pieces come either in the shape of cube or as larger, rectangular low table. The series is available in three finishes: copper, silver and gold. The smaller version is ideal for compact spaces or to liven up a lounge area.
Funiculí Floor Lamp by Marset
French lighting manufacturer Marset brightens up the classic Funiculí lighting range. Until now only available in black, grey and white, the minimalist floor light, designed by Lluís Porqueras in 1979, can now be specified in warm green, terracotta or mustard hues. The round shade can rotate 360 degrees, so it can be used for direct and indirect lighting, and is also height adjustable thanks to the two clamps attaching the shade to the stem.
