  • Arauto
    Table, coat rack, chair or even sculpture, what is Arauto? In this singular work, Brazilian designer Pedro Paulø-Venzon invites us to discuss the possible uses for the object, seeking our gaze to define it, with its absence of limitations.

  • A-Chair
    The clear formal language here reduces sitting to the essence. In dialog with this are the interlocking wood connections: they turn a structural necessity into a unique aesthetic feature and at the same time represent a tour de force of traditional carpentry. A perfect explanation of the outstanding A-Chair; a functional chair that uses the least material […]

  • Cresta
    The minimalist Cresta chair is an excellent design about contrasts: contrast between tradition and modernity, between old and new technologies and between robust and smooth tactility. It is the first shell chair made of solid wood, fabricated with the finger joint technology, connecting a seat and a back in a unique streamlined structure, used for the […]

  • K1 Chair
    According to Marta Adamczyk, designer and founder of Moskou, the minimalist K1 chair is full of contrasts. From the side you see a slim, linear chair contour but the K1 chair has a solid singular frame that supports the seat and backrest, with the seat placed at a slight angle. The frame is made of powder coated steel […]
  • Gentle Hint Chair
    Nissa Kinzhalina‘s latest conception, the Gentle Hint Chair, is the epitome of restrained minimalism. The collection is a duo of seating elements that also double as potential table elements. The pieces see the calculated fusion of lines with the physical limits of the material itself. The balancing act between these two is quite beautiful. Made […]
  • Offset Chair
    Offset Chair is a minimalist chair designed by Copenhagen-based designers Johansen Faurschou as an evolution of the traditional armrest chair. The studio was established in 2012 by Anita Johansen and Laura Faurschou with ambition to create products with a long-lasting expression through a precise and effortless style.

    Switzerland based studio Kind of Design launched earlier this year their debut collection of furniture, called M°1. The collection consists of a table, taboret, lamp and fruit bowl but I would like to highlight the chair: Chaise M°1. As seen from the front there is a nice contrast between the slim legs and solid backrest […]
  • String Series
    String Series is a work in steel developed by the London based designer Dean Edmonds, with it also being an homage to the string chair. Without doubt, an interesting experiment that uses the resistance of the steel to create a minimalist and light chair design, contrasting with the appearance of the steel. The designer explains: By […]

  • Fura
    Swedish design studio, Form Us With Love, who’s incredible studio space in Stockholm we featured a few years ago, have recently designed this beautiful stool with clean-cut lines, interrupted by a recess that serves as a footrest, which brings to mind the cutting of a tree trunk, ‘fura’ in Swedish.

  • Softer than steel
    From one of Japan’s luminaries of simplicity, Tokyo-based design studio Nendo, comes a delightfully ethereal furniture collection created for Italian company Desalto, known for their metal furniture. The wonder of the collection lies precisely in the fluid, light way the hard steel is worked, bent as naturally as if it were paper, as described by Nendo. […]
