New products 2017
We were delighted to present even more of our classics and many new products to you this year at a larger trade fair booth at the imm cologne 2017.
Eileen Gray’s Centimetre Rug is one of the new products. In addition, we presented the dining table of the Pli Table series, the Lantern Light by the architects neri&hu and the height-adjustable Sax Side Table.
Centimetre Rug by Eileen Gray, 1926
Eileen Gray created not only some of the most important furniture classics of the 20th century but also had her own studio where rugs were produced according to her designs.
Designed in 1926 for the Salon of the Villa E1027, the Centimetre Rug highlights the number 10 with a mysterious code – a nod to the tenth letter of the alphabet: J for her partner Jean Badovici, with whom she designed the Villa Maison au Bord de Mer E1027.
The Centimetre Rug is authorised by The World Licence Holder Aram Designs Ltd., London.
Pli Table series by Victoria Wilmotte 2016 / 2017
With the Pli Table series French designer Victoria Wilmotte brings objects of unusual crystalline elegance and astonishing geometry to living environments. In the entrée, galleries and stores the table can also be used as a spectacular eye-catcher.
Lantern Light by Neri Lyndon and Rossana Hu, 2017
The design of the Lantern Light, which neri&hu introduce with ClassiCon in 2017, refers to a design by Italian designer Vico Magistretti from the year 1977:
neri&hu: "Vico Magistretti designed a light in 1977 called Lyndon based on the idea of a structure holding a simple ball of light. The delicate glass bowl sets a contrast to the minimalist approach to its base pursuing the idea of being read as a cloud. To commemorate the tenth year of his death, we selected the Lyndon light to pay homage to the designer and created a light in the same spirit."
Sax Side Table by Christoph Böninger
Sax is a constructivist masterpiece. Its patented mechanism reveals completely new aspects in the concept of the height-adjustable table. A small turn of the hand changes Sax from a low side table into a high serving trolley and vice versa.
With its variably adjustable table height and rollers Sax is a practical companion with many possible uses.
