We are smack bang in the middle of one of the most exciting times of the year on the furniture calendar!  Across the globe, the furniture fair tour takes us from destination to destination, each fair holding their own focus, yet all with one common purpose: showcasing the latest in furniture and product design. The latest collections trickle down and form the additions to the KE-ZU catalogue for specification into the Australian market. Exciting! The latest from internationally renowned KE-ZU supplier Kenneth Cobonpue (not-so-coincidentally recently named designer of the year at Maison & Objet Asia – read the blog post here) are the collections Annika and Adesso. The two collections are vastly different, whilst still representing the Kenneth Cobonpue mantra; successful fusion between high technology and age-old craftsmanship.  

Annika is a strong and shapely collection offered as a side chair or an arm chair, both models confidently blending structural geometry with a soft fluidity.

With the structure constructed of maple wood, Annika swings confidently between the residential and contract markets, sidling perfectly to a dining table or holding pride of place in lounge rooms or waiting rooms.

Launched at Maison & Objet 2014, Adesso translates from Italian to “now”; a fitting name for a contemporary piece. Her second collection for Kenneth Cobonpue after last year’s Trame (pictured below), the imaginative Italian designer Federica Capitani again utilizes lineal colour to arrive at the jubilant Adesso.

The clean lines of Adesso’s boldly coloured exuberant framework and incorporation of weaving techniques results in a fun interplay of lines and colour for a carefree collection.
