For the first time, we're joining the North American global design fair ICFF New York to display an array of our contemporary furniture from world-renowned designers to our customers across the pond. From 14–17 May 2016 you will find us and our popular designs from Shin Azumi, Matthew Hilton, Marina Bautier, Robin Day and Nazanin Kamali at New York City’s Jacob K Javits Convention Centre.
Among the products we're taking to ICFF is iconic 675 chair by mid-century British designer Robin Day, awarded a Design Guild Mark Award in 2015. We have manufactured an authentic licensed production of the original 1952 design, which is available in oak and walnut, with chrome or black legs. New to our collection is the Narin folding Chair, designed by David Irwin, who joins our family of designers with a chair designed to look as good when stacked as it is when in use. The Narin chair will be available in oak and stain finishes towards the end of May 2016.
The Loku range of chairs and stools by Japanese-born Shin Azumi will be amongst the products shown during this event. Azumi's exploration of efficient methods of advanced three-dimensional veneer technology has created a thin plywood veneer that is shaped and pressed to form tight curves, with a shell is visually and physically light yet supportive and robust.
The Covet desk, also by Shin Azumi, has a minimal look that conceals ample storage. This simple, practical design features a glass desktop and integrated shelf with drawer.
Lap Shelving by Marina Bautier comprises of a solid oak frame and a variety of folded sheet metal components, which are powder-coated. These include a bookshelf, a tray shelf, a deep box and a shallow box, which can be drop into and overlap the frame. The modular system is suitable to use in an office, retail spaces or for the home. From designer Matthew Hilton, the Stanley range of seating is formed of a solid oak frame with sumptuous dark leather upholstery, its mid-century shape reminiscent of the clean-lined aesthetic of the 1950s and '60s. Hilton's Lucent side table is constructed from tempered glass to be tough enough to withstand the demands of everyday life, yet its delicate translucent structure does not impose in small space living environments. The Loop Floor Mirror by Nazanin Kamali creates a smooth, continuous line, suspending a tall pane of mirrored glass within a curved birch and oak veneer frame. The product’s modern leaning design enables this floor mirror to effortlessly fit within any space.
