Family Chairs
A collection of 5 steel chairs with a remarkable magnified optical effect designed by the Japanese architect Junya Ishigami. These pieces are light, harmonious, and easy to use. Whilst they are all similar, each chair has a slightly different shape, and its own personality. The structure of the chairs is made from steel rods, curved using a CNC machine, and welded together using internal reinforcement. The chairs are finished with an epoxy powder coating to allow for outdoor use and each chair has its own unique shaped cushion.

Epoxy powder-coated steel in white


Made-In Manufacturing Stool
This collection is part of the designer’s Minute Manufacturing project: a production system that makes objects by the minute. The pieces are coated in brightly coloured air-drying clay in a bid to inject some fun into these objects. The cost is measured in custom coins and every coin is worth a minute of production time and is the equivalent of one Euro. Time really is money; the number of minutes spent affects the quality and design of the outcome. Each piece is custom made; therefore, the colours are unique and made on demand.

Bramber is a portable greenhouse that can be rolled like a wheelbarrow to the ideal spot – and is an aesthetically pleasing object. The thoughtful design features an angled profile and hardware that allows for the easy replacement of the safety glass, ensuring the longevity of the product. Plants that require a little less humidity will be grateful for the glass lid, which can be held open in various positions, while the two handles mean the greenhouse can be wheeled around easily. Simply access the plants for watering by simply raising the tilting windows. Built to last, it comes with a 100-year guarantee, promising a piece that can be enjoyed for years to come.
