De Padova Sen Table
This set of versatile, geometric coffee tables with round tops and skinny legs is available in varied heights, sizes, finishes (marble, oak), and even a nanotechnology option for “soft touch treatment”.
Zanotta Nuno Stool
Referencing the work of saddlers, the sculpture/ stool covered in soft cowhide doubles as a pouf/storage, with carefully considered stitching and straps.
Kristalia Holo Table
Featuring an unconventional base with an oval hole, created by innovatively moulding and bending a piece of sheet metal, the table comes with a thin laminate or solid wood top.
Ligne Roset Belize Mirror
The mirror framed in satin-varnished natural American solid walnut or matt-varnished black-stained solid ash can be mounted on the wall either horizontally or vertically.
Poltrona Frau Leplì Collection
The padded stool, bench and footrest in leather or textile are influenced by traditional Poltrona Frau production processes and decorations, and feature tailoring concepts from the fashion world such as classic stitching, soft folds and a slender belt highlighting the “waist”.
Boffi Iko Towel Rack
Echoing the traditional Japanese kimono stand, the freestanding, minimalist rack for hanging bathroom towels elegantly balances a weighted stone base and an ultra- thin, brushed- stainless steel rod.
Gan Grapy Easy Chair
Inspired by the image of a farmer sitting on a jute sack, the comfortable, flexible and ergonomic easy chair in five colour choices with semi- formed silhouette is meant for spending long relaxing hours in.
Oshiro CC01 Chair
The proportions, form and decoration of the Ligurian Chiavari have been reworked to produce a contemporary reinterpretation of a 19th-century icon that bridges East and West and comes in three styles.
