The European furniture fair season is in full swing with IMM Cologne, Maison&Objet and Stockholm Furniture Fair giving us a preview of what to expect this year. Here are just some of the latest releases from a few of our favourite brands.
Artifort unveiled its updated Mare sofa collection at IMM Cologne. Designed by René Holten in 2003, the Mare sofa is restrained with clean lines, subtle details and elevated on slim sled bases. Artifort expanded the modular collection this year to include a chaise longue and day bed, supplementing the existing two and three seater sofas.
EMU latest seating collections shown at IMM Cologne included a reinterpreted edition of Cross by Rodolfo Dordoni, the versatile Nova collection of compact seating by Aldo Ciabatti and the Modern collection of seating that contrasts the fluidity of its form with the rigidity of its construction.
Also new to the collection is Cone, a range of outdoor lighting inspired by the elegant lamp shades of the 1950’s. Cone designers Chiaramonte Marin also designed a lighting installation titled “Light of the Abyss,” which took out first prize and the GOLD award in the Light Labs selection.
Vondom presented at IMM Cologne and Maison&Objet with its new Premium chair collection being hard to miss. Vondom has reimagined its Africa, Delta and Wall Street chairs in sleek silver and glistening gold. The metallic finishes accentuate the lines and forms and bring a touch of beauty, glamour and magic to a space.
Vondom’s Ulm collection was also on display and included the daybed, modular sofa and lamp, as well as the one-piece Vela sofa, new Faz planters and Fiesta counter – each piece as eye catching and refreshingly avant garde as the next.
The Kes collection of hospitality chairs designed by Gabriele and Oscar Buratti is now available in two new colours, tortora and grey, providing a smart and versatile option for indoor and outdoor spaces.
ENEA debuted new furniture pieces and accessories at Maison&Objet and Stockholm Furniture Fair. This included polypropylene versions of the Caddy coat stand, a lower Puck seat (with and without wheels) and four-legged version of the Ema chair (with and without arms).
Kaiak and Street are two new multipurpose chairs for indoor and outdoor spaces respectively. Kaiak has a curved plywood backrest and upholstered seat, and Street is made with lacquered printed metal sheet welded to a light structure.
ENEA has also evolved and expanded the Coma collection of stools with Coma Wood and Coma 4L and added new accessories to the LTS System Table, allowing even greater freedom of choice office and residential work and dining spaces.
