We've curated a calming space, an elegant collection of pieces designed by cutting-edge studios and formed from noble materials; so serene it's been crowned Best Reflective Space in our Wallpaper* Design Awards.  

Coffee table
Formed from two marble panels held together by a brushed metal frame, Jean-Marie Massaud’s ‘Creek’ coffee table, for Poliform, embodies the architect’s penchant for lightness.

Nendo’s ‘Tape’ sofa, for Minotti, features exquisite details, including a curved outer shell and discreet metal bands holding the feet in place.

The geometric ‘Piega’ mirror, designed by Victoria Wilmotte for ClassiCon and made from bent, mirror-polished stainless steel, creates a playful hybrid of refraction and reflection.

The design of Barber & Osgerby’s glazed stoneware ‘Lane’ tiles, for Mutina, is enriched by a series of palettes inspired by London’s different brick types.

Israeli designer Hagit Pincovici’s asymmetric ‘Selene’ sideboard, for Baxter, is an elegant ensemble of Italian marble, lacquered surfaces and shiny metal legs.

GamFratesi’s blown glass ‘Soffi’ lights, for Poltrona Frau, are suspended delicately from a slender leather belt, featuring contrasting stitching.

Benjamin Hubert’s versatile basket, for Fritz Hansen, features a shell made from pressure-moulded ash veneer and a handle of solid steam-bent ash. §
