SLICE by Pierre Charpin for Cinna
Slice upholstered armchair by French designer Pierre Charpin was recently relaunched by Cinna, a division of furniture giant Ligne-Roset. The whimsical seat can be extended with a row of coloured stools that can stretch the armchair into a chaise lounge. The modular imprint of the seating shifts from classical design to club furniture and contemporary design. Slice is on show at Charpin’s Designer of the Year exhibition.
X-Ray by Alain Gilles fot La Chance
Belgium Designer Alain Gilles completes the X-Ray collection with a daybed, an armchair and an ottoman for French furniture brand La Chance. The design reveal s the architecture of a seating while preserving ergonomics and comfort. “We decided to expose the internal structure of the furniture that is never worked to be shown” explains the designer. A first metal structure supports a second structure holding up the seat and back, and serves as an anchoring point that runs around and, so to speak, wraps up the seat. This armrest made of wood brings an element of warmth to a structural part that may come into contact with the body.
Petite Friture showcases its new furniture in a Modernist environment created by Mexico-based illustrator Ana Montiel who blended graphic design and architecture. Pieces by Constance Guisset, Morten & Jonas, Studio Vit and Tiphaine de Bodman tune with a design set ranging from salmon pink to yellow and orange.
Concha by Samuel Accoceberry for Bosc
Bosc presents the Concha family of small armchairs and sofas with a compact shape. Designed by Samuel Accoceberry, the enveloping and accommodating volume is directly inspired by conch shells. The collection is perfectly suited to small surface areas. The name is taken from the famous bay in San Sebastian, which is shaped like a seashell.
