Maison & Objet + IMM Cologne 2016 – New “folks” join the HARTÔ family. The French design brand expands its cosy collection with George armchair, Marius side table and Edgar modular shelf unit but also Gaston secretary desks and Suzon nightstand.
The new functional products created in collaboration with young designers combine vibrant colours with a neutral palette to add an informal and playful vibe to each room.
Georges armchair is HARTÔ’s first upholstered seating. Created by French designer Guillaume Delvigne it stands out for its soft rounded welcoming shapes mounted on a structure made of solid oak. George is covered with Gabriel® fabric and comes in vibrant nuances ranging from apple green to lemon and grey.
Paris-based designer Pierre-François Dubois created Marius side table. The curves of the new design recall the shape of a ship’s hull while the pattern of the doors alludes to it’s sails. Marius is available in 3 colors: natural oak, light grey and petrol blue. Its body comes MDF and oak veneer with matt finish while the legs are in solid oak.
Whether you need a sideboard, a large or a small bookcase, Edgar will be your man. Created by Mark Braun, the stackable modular shelf unit features distinctively coloured dividers. “They guarantee stability, serve as a bookend or highlight special books or magazines displayed in front of it. Yet best of all: you can also hide your private objects behind it” suggests the German designer.
Monsieur and Madame Noyer by French designer Florence Watine are modular storage units with painted drawers. Gaston Noyer wall desk secretary hangs on the wall and can be used as a shelf, a console or a secretary desk. Suzon Noyer fits in any room: it can work as a nighstand next to the bed or keep beauty products in the bathroom.
The “Noyers” are available in walnut veneered MDF and walnut veneered plywood. Mat lacquer on drawers in neutral colours, leather pulls and brass detail add a warm, friendlier tone.
HARTÔ is a young design company that debuted on line in 2011. The brand was initially only distributed on line but has now expanded beyond the web space, making its creations travelling up to new homes through multiple ways.
