H&D Hotlist #084: New design products, furniture and home accessories
Sustainability Meets Style
Cork gets a new lease of life with the furniture pieces and bowls designed by Jasper Morrison for Vitra. Lightweight and fashioned from recycled pure cork that is left untreated for a natural and lively look, the former are suited for use as side tables or stools. Two new designs join the original three created in 2004, set apart by their round, convex profiles.
Cork Family, available from www.vitra.com and Vitra Store Singapore.

Take It Outside
Aptly named “Hybrid”, the new sofa collection by Italian architect Antonio Citterio for B&B Italia bridges the gap between indoor and outdoor living. The design is evocative of the padded comfort and aesthetics of indoor seating, with a construction and functions that are made to weather the elements. A modular seating system allows for a number of configurations to suit your preferences. Customise yours with a myriad of outdoor fabric options, and a platform that is available in eight sizes and two depths. The armrest and backrest come in two heights.
B&B Italia’s Hybrid collection is available at Space Furniture, price upon enquiry.
