Top Picks from Milan 2016
Krusin Collection 016, Knoll (Design: Marc Krusin)
The Krusin Collection is a family of chairs in a range of variations for functional versatility. Designed by Marc Krusin, the collection includes three different shell types (a seat with or without armrests, and an armchair with an enveloping back), sharing the same bases (die-cast aluminium or solid ash in a range of finishes).
All Plastic Chair, Vitra (Design: Jasper Morrison)
Designed by Jasper Morrison, Vitra’s All Plastic Chair is compact and extremely comfortable. Designed with a ‘two-tone’ palette, pairing frames in a slightly darker shade with seats and backrests in a lighter nuance of the same hue, the APC is a robust and durable option for indoor and outdoor settings.
Soft Edge Chair, HAY (Design: Ikos-Berlin)
Ikos-Berlin’s Soft Edge Chair for HAY utilises the latest developments in moulded plywood technique, applying a production method that generates significantly more double curvature from standard veneers. Available in steel-framed and wooden-framed versions, the Soft Edge Chair stacks well and is very light.
Catifa 46, Arper (Design: Lievore Altheer Molina)
New for 2016, the Catifa 46 family retains the same slim profile as the 2014 version (originally designed for contract use) but is now available in an updated colour palette of rosé, petrol, yellow, ivory and smoke.
Embrace Chair, Carl Hansen & Søn (Design: EEOS)
The Embrace Chair is intended as an elegant dining chair, but also performs as a guest chair, for hotel lobbies, conference rooms or waiting rooms when not in use. The wood structure supports a soft cushion upholstery, which is folded into three dimensions to create the seat, back and armrest.
Morph Plus, Zeitraum (Design: Formstelle)
The Morph Plus is the latest addition to Zeitraum’s Morph family of chairs. The Morph Plus is designed with a broader and deeper seat and is available as a veneered wood shell, optionally with padded seat, or fully upholstered.
Eames Coffee Table, Vitra (Design: Charles & Ray Eames)
Originally designed in 1949 by Charles and Ray Eames, this re-edition of the Eames Coffee Table is available with a square or rectangular top, made of palisander veneer, marble or solid American walnut. The base combines black wooden legs with metal cross-struts, providing an elegant and stable understructure.
Palissade, HAY (Design: Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec)
Palissade is a collection of outdoor furniture designed to fit cafés, restaurants, gardens, terraces and balconies. Including stools, benches, chairs, tables, lounge chairs and sofas, the collection is strong without being bulky, elegant without being fragile.
Matrioska Credenza, Knoll (Design: Piero Lissoni)
The Matrioska Credenza is a storage system of wood, marble and glass. Designed by Piero Lissoni, each movable piece can create a variety of spatial sequences, offering glimpses of the credenza contents. The pieces can be closed with doors or left open, arranged at regular distances from one another or in free compositions.
