Rising Collection – Foldable Furniture by Robert van Embricqs

Dutch designer Robert van Embricqs created a foldable furniture series, in which each piece starts with a flat surface and is capable of intricately folding itself up into an minimal design. The idea is simple, and that is to commence with a flat surface that can transform into a piece of stylish furniture. Looking at natural transformations, that function beautifully without cumbersome, or clumsy design, provided the inspiration for the incision pattern that in turn became the latticework of “woven” wooden beams that make-up the table’s centre. The Rising Collection, which features mostly furniture made of bamboo caramel, includes a chair, table and fruit bowl among others. Inspired by natural forms, Van Embricqs’ work predominantly explores the extent to which objects can dictate their own design.

The X-Me Collection by Ellinor Ericsson

Danish designer Ellinor Ericsson designed the X-Me Collection in Nordic design: simple, stylish, but lacking in embellishments. “The X-Me Collection is a furniture concept developed by the question “Why does Nordic furniture design lack ornaments?”. In the project, nordic furniture design were compared to the adorned Rococo furnitures. The goal was to find a balance between the two different aesthetics, to bring the best from both. The result was a oversized cross-stitch ornaments in wool, and a braided birch wood construction in a couch and a lounge chair collection. The balance between purity of style and decoration, where the inspiration was the reverse; the construction materials are Nordic and the shape is rococo. The ornament is inspired by rococo but the cross stitch stylish Scandinavian. And the craftsmanship brings them both together.”

Orbit Sink by Alessandro Isola

Beneath the top container sits a contrasting chrome ring that functions as a towel rail and soap tray surface. The three rotating pieces beneath, each serve as storage volumes.

The Infrastructure Series by Vivian Beer

Vivian Beer has designed a collection of sculptural benches named the Infrastructure Series. “The Infrastructure series is a study of ubiquitous architectural public works through the public/intimate format of benches…Juxtaposing industrial material with soft sensual curves that reflect our body’s architecture; these pieces are a play on our expectations. To me the ironic, visceral and sensual reaction to the conflicting “purposes” of the materials is a rich playground of meaning. Each piece has a physiological component in its design through a specific use and the relationship that it sets up between people using it.”
