Born from a proud Scandinavian tradition of wood making, Copenhagen-based brand Oliver Furniture introduces two gorgeous ranges of kids furniture with a simple aesthetic and quality craftsmanship. The Seaside collection is inspired by easy beach-house living whilst the Wood collection highlights the natural beauty in timbers. The brand was founded in 2003 by Danish cabinetmaker and designer Soren Rorbaek and started with a collection of romantic adult furniture. A year later Oliver Furniture introduced their charming kids collection.
Fritz Hansen’s approach to colours is associated with their choice of genuine materials that patinate over time in a constant state of gradual transformation. Fritz Hansen appreciates this slow metamorphosis, which is also reflected in their iconic Series 7™ Chair’s nine new colours by the Danish artist Tal R. He has created nine artistic shades, all blends and all variable colours that change with the light, the space, the seasons and other aspects of the environment. Because a colour is not just a colour but a complex and inconstant factor. That is why Fritz Hansen prefers artistic colours to industrial colours, diversity to uniformity and the natural to the artificial. The result is a piece of furniture that will continue to live, surprise and inspire.
Fri™ is an easy chair designed by Jaime Hayon. Fri is designed to create a cosy feel in any setting. The shell and cushions come fully upholstered in 7 designer colours. The powder coated legs are made in colours matching the upholstered shell and cushions and are only available for a selection of the designer colours.
Another new upholstered dining chair from Jaime Hayon is the Sammen™ – Danish for ‘being together’. This chair is designed to provide ease of comfort for those nights spent socialising around the dinner table. Different fabrics and leg finishes are available to suit a variety of settings.
To commemorate the 60th Anniversary of The Series 7™ Chair by Arne Jacobsen, Republic of Fritz Hansen has released two limited editions – one a masculine version with a dark blue lacquer shell and powder-coated burnished legs and a feminine edition dressed in pale pink lacquer with 24-carat gold-plated legs.
The Family Love Tree based in Melbourne, Australia is a treasure trove of finely handcrafted rattan furniture and lighting coupled with a beautifully curated range of soft furnishings which perfectly complement in delicious colour and texture. Images by Derek Swalwell and Armelle Habib.
The discrete and elegant lounge chair PK22™ epitomises the work of Poul Kjærholm and his search for the ideal type-form and industrial dimension, which was always present in his work. The profile of the steel frame structure originates from his graduation project, the “Element” Chair (PK25™), from the School of Applied Arts in Copenhagen. On the PK22™, the structure was divided into separate elements due to design improvements and for economical production.
The PK22™ was an immediate commercial and critical success. In 1957, the chair was awarded the Grand Prix at the Milan Triennale, the world’s premier design fair. The prize catapulted Kjærholm’s career and immediately he became a name on the international scene and has enjoyed this position ever since.
The PK22™ is available in wicker, suede or leather with a base in satin-brushed stainless steel.
