Vitra may be new to the Tangram offering, but the brand has been a spearhead within the design industry for more than 60 years.  Boasting collaborations with some of the most celebrated designers past & present, including Charles & Ray Eames and Antonio Citterio, Vitra have a portfolio that includes timeless classics and fresh new designs.

We're only 8 weeks into 2015 and already seeing some outstanding new designs coming out of the European furniture fairs.  imm Cologne, Maison et Objet Paris and the Stockholm Furniture Fair welcome the very best in both residential and contemporary contract furniture manufacturers and their new designs have not disappointed.  Here are Tangram's favourites so far...

After a lovely festive break we're very excited to be back at Tangram HQ. Why? Well you only have to scroll through the images below to understand... A new year called for a new showroom display with some brand new products! And my, does it look pretty.

Tangram have been working with MARK Product for many years and it is a pleasure to watch the company and brand grow stronger every year.  Founded by John Miller and Anna Hart in 2008, Mark Product is based in Penryn in Cornwall which gives the company a unique DNA.  Much of the products are designed in Cornwall and many are made there too.

Our early favourite products from the collection were the Horizon screen made in solid timber which creates fabulous shadows and is a beautiful piece, the clever Spin table with its magnetic fixings and the Arris armchair with a solid timber frame and soft cushions which is fast becoming a classic.  Recent additions which we think are going to prove very popular are as follows;

'Flag' table and bench – a combination of slab ended tables and benches in laminate with a clever mitred joint and hardwood edge, a great idea to ensure a hardy product and available in a huge range of colours. Flag-table+bench_01

With the unveiling of the limited edition Egg™ chair and Jaime Hayon's restoration of Arne Jacobsen's original designs in the iconic SAS Royal Hotel, things have been particularly Fritzy of late. To tickle your Tangram fancy this week we thought we'd stick to this main theme but discuss a different Fritz-filled hotel (did someone say alliteration?)
