'Bowl' table

Mater
£295

Fusing traditional Indian craftsmanship with clean Scandinavian design, Ayush Kasliwal's 'Bowl' table is a smooth amalgamation of two styles that, on paper, aren't supposed to work. In reality, the combination of a sustainably-sourced mango wood tabletop — crafted using techniques of Kharadi, an Indian wood turning community — and the clean silhouette cast by milled hollow steel rod legs, is a success. True to Mater's environmentally-friendly ethos, the table is finished with a lead-free, water-based PU lacquer.

Diana' B

Konstantin Grcic / Classicon
£427

Formed of sheet metal, powder-coated in a variety of colours, Konstantin Grcic's 2002 ‘Diana’ side tables (available here in two versions) were conceived in the manner of a font character, with careful reworking of each line, angle and radius. ‘The more I worked on this project, the more I realised that even a few simple folds were sufficient to create a beautifully three-dimensional form,’ says Grcic.

'Theca'

Marcel Wanders / Poliform
Price on request

We are used to a decorative design stance from Marcel Wanders, so we were pleasantly surprised to lay eyes on something more minimal. His ‘Theca’ series is a family of modest, rigorous sideboards with an aesthetic that plays on the contrast between solid and vacant space. Combining opaque and shiny surfaces, transparent volumes and blocky elements, the collection includes low and tall cabinets imagined for drinks and home entertainment. As well as creating an enticing design that includes asymmetrical compositions of fumed glass and elm, Wanders has also developed the cabinets’ interiors to give them a more practical function, equipping them with removable trays, electrically-wired compartments, drawers and bottle holders.

Cast brass vase

Thévos Choquet
Price on request

These humble one-flower vases by duo Thévoz Choquet comprises polished brass cast in a transparent resin block. The brass is deliberately left exposed, allowing it to oxidise over time, whilst the resin remains pristine, shiny and untouched. This creates a unique ornament that both ages and remains new, poetically trapped between two conflicting timelines. The sculptural pieces are part of a collection of ambiguous objects made from the same materials as part of the 'I Dream of Luxury' exhibition in Rossana Orlandi at Salone del Mobile
