'Happy D.2'

Sieger Design / Duravit
From £418

Duravit has introduced a new furniture range for its basin units, conceived by Sieger Design. Answering the demand for ever more vanity space, the German manufacturer has produced a variety of wall-mounted and floor standing cabinets that maximise storage yet maintain a discreet look. The seamless edges and subtle new die-cast zinct feet neatly complement the brand's basins. We're smitten with the soft curves and textured linen finish of this 'Happy D.2' Unit.

Tasse Ciment Haute

Frédérick Gautier / Serax
£19

Crafted from cement stoneware, Frédérick Gautier's teapot and mug collection for Serax pays tribute to architecture and the many materials that have enabled humanity to survive. As such, the roughly hewn surface of the 'Tasse Ciment Haute' is reflective of the primitive imperfections of manmade matter, while the simplicity of its elongated rectangular handle is a continuation of the elementary shapes found throughout Gautier's work.

'Dream'Air'

Eugeni Quitllet / Kartell
Price on request

Ibiza-born, Barcelona-based designer Eugeni Quitllet’s career is characterised by lightness. His latest collaboration with Kartell explores this with a chair whose contemporary silhouette bridges the gap between solid and ethereal. A suspended curved seat is perched on a simple geometric frame and comes in a range of colours, from transparent and neutral shades to deep, bold hues, such as the red, pictured here. ‘Thanks to Kartell’s continual research and technological innovation in the fields of materials and processes, we were able to beautifully float dreams on the air,’ says Quitllet.

'Rock.Air'

Steininger
From €5,000 per block

Following on from the success of its monolithic ‘Rock’ kitchen units, Steininger has presented its first ever outdoor kitchen range. The Austrian design manufacturer, noted for its purist ethos, launched the range amid the freezing climes of an alpine mountain top, revealing the epic durability of the kitchen blocks, which incorporate a gas barbecue, sink, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, and storage space. The outer skin of the individual blocks is made of anthracite-coloured stainless steel and is covered with an innovative, high-tech nano coating made of glass ceramic. The extremely hard-wearing material is resistant to all weather conditions and also stands up to salt water.

'Spot'

Michael Anastassiades / Herman Miller
price on request

Michael Anastassiades’ inaugural collection of occasional furnishings for Herman Miller follows the Cypriot designer’s exploration of an object’s physical presence, and how its existence affects its surroundings. It would be an understatement to call these stools minimal: their reduced forms, carved from walnut and white oak, are combined with a brass element and feature a shape that is elegant and discreet yet stripped to the bare essentials. ‘When an object is made out of only a handful of elements, you have to make each one absolutely perfect,’ says the designer. The stools come in a range of sizes.

Galileo

Mario Ferrarini / Living Divani
€1,457

For the first mirror in the Living Divani collection, the company enlisted Como-based designer Mario Ferrarini, who played with balance and geometry to create ‘Galileo’. Available in two sizes – 60cm or 90cm in diameter – the mirror is suspended by a thin steel wire and resembles a giant pendulum, poised to swing. Its imposing size is contrasted by the lightness of its form and the brilliance of its bronze finish. Looking glasses don’t get much better looking.

From Alberto Biagetti's 'Edi' collection of lights, this table lamp was conceived and designed as real light bulbs, but with a twist. Here, the filament has been replaced with a piece of sculptural glass constructed from multi-coloured Murano glass canes, which offer soft tones to the LED light.

Studioilse w084t2

Ilse Crawford / Wästberg
£405

Born of a collaboration between eminent Swedish design-house, Wästberg, and coveted British designer, Ilse Crawford, this unique table lamp with NL plug utilises – alongside years of impressive design innovation – the power of materials to evoke sensory and emotional responses in the viewer. Sand-casted iron, treated with a burnt vegetable oil, is used to portray a sense of stability, reliability and trust. Beech wood gives an impression of warmth and life, while mineral plastic has been specially chosen for its intimate glow and tactility. In collaboration, these materials and the designers behind their marriage, bring to the surface a unique concept of beauty within the visceral realm of interior accessories.
