Exciting Going Ons ...
It’s delivery time at the Zu!
The showroom was alive this week with new product being unloaded by our warehouse lads and unpacked by staff under the careful eye of Lidia our showroom manager (who, it must be said, was a gun on coffee duty).
The entire staff pool get so excited when new furniture arrives at the showroom. These are pieces we’ve spoken about, seen photos of, learnt about and we finally get a chance to experience them, understand their scale and dimensions and see their materiality composition close up. We debate their features as we welcome them to our daily lives. These pieces from our trusted suppliers form a fresh KE-ZU catalogue and will shortly tour the country visiting the showrooms which comprise our national distribution network.
Check out some new products below.[caption id="attachment_7311" align="aligncenter" width="570" caption="Andreu World – Manfred by Lievore, Altherr & Molina"][/caption]

We’re expecting big things from this adaptation. Andreu World have expanded on the Red Dot Design Award winning Sail collection designed by Piergiorgio Cazzaniga.

Sail is destined for greatness in hospitality applications and dining rooms the country over. A beautifully ‘green’ chair, Sail wood is made out from 100% recyclable wood from reforested areas, bears FSC certification and meets the chain of custody from the source of the material to the final product.[caption id="attachment_7319" align="aligncenter" width="600" caption="bd Barcelona – Side Table B by Konstantin Grcic"][/caption]
