16 May Salone del Mobile Favourite Finds – Part 2
Last month took us to Milan for our annual pilgrimage to the Salone del Mobile.
One of the biggest events in our calendar and an opportunity to be fully immersed in design for a few fantastic days. This year visitors were up 27% on 2017, making the atmosphere more frenetic than ever. Despite the crowds we uncovered
lots of fabulous new products.
We found so much at the Milan Fair that this blog is Part 2 of our
Favourite Finds and still only the tip of the iceberg!
We hope you enjoy…
Carl Hansen – CH71 and 72. Designed by Hans J. Wegner

and CH72 sofa, originally designed by Hans J. Wegner in 1952. Subtle and
slender in design; with beautiful detailing and amazing comfort.
Walter Knoll – Bundle. Designed by Eoos
The Bundle Sofa takes softness to a new level. The beautifully crafted sofa was
inspired by the popular children’s game, “Buuuuuun-dle!”
families pile up clothes and blankets…a pure bundle of joy.

Deep upholstery and comfort contrast the simple,
slim steel frame of this sofa. Forming a
versatile sofa that is perfect for many interiors.

the result is positively satisfying levels of comfort.

Walter Knoll – Badawi Pillow. Designed by Helmut Scheufele

exude an air of traditional seating culture. These soft pillows adjust
to the body’s shape providing a great place to relax.
Bensen – Entree Mirror. Designed by Niels Bendtsen & Co
A cleverly designed frame incorporates a shelf but maintains a
minimalist appearance, simple and useful.
Kasthall – Gronska Rugs. Designed by Ilse Crawford
Ilse Crawfords collection, called Grönska, drew inspiration from the Swedish
landscape around the Kasthall factory in Kinna, Västergötland. The collection was
developed both as a tribute to the life, colours, patterns and textures of the Swedish
landscape, and to address the general desire to bring more green into our interiors.
Established & Sons – Filigrana Light. Designed by Sebastian Wrong
The Filigrana Light harnesses the mastery and heritage of traditional Venetian
glass blowing,merging a 16th-century technique from Murano with a modern
aesthetic. We all fell in love with this fitting and because it is hand-blown,
each light will be truly unique.
Schonbuch – View. Designed by Apartment 8
The View mirror is a clear, contemporary take on 1950s-inspired design.
MDF Italia – Quark. Designed by Luca Nichetto

that can be combined to create wall and floor compositions.

With practically limitless configurations, Treku
have created an Aura Sketcher App to design
your own unique piece.
Zeitraum – Okito. Designed by Läufer + Keichel
The minimalist form of the OKITO chair combines the essentials of
functionality and beauty. The chair weighs in at less than 5 kilos making it a great
option to ‘pull up and grab’ in a range of different environments. Either solid
timber or a more cost-effective ply variant, it is a very refreshing design.
E15 – Basis. Designed by David Chipperfield
A handsome table with solid wooden trestles constructed using
traditional joinery techniques makes the Basis an instant classic.
Walter Knoll – Moualla. Designed by Neptun Ozis
The Moualla table is characterised by a unique hand-drawn line, the top seems to
float over the base giving a sense of lightness. Available in oak or walnut.

beauty of imperfection, with a drawn brass tube frame and top in European cherry wood.
STUA – Libera. Designed by Jesús Gasca & Jon Gasca
The solid wooden frame of the Libera is visually stunning and has a distinctively fluid
shape to it. Using contemporary technology, the wooden frame and arms are
extremely tactile whilst the upholstery is soft and welcoming. Jesús & Jon Gasca
have created a timeless piece of design representing
Stua’s forte of creating enduring pieces.
