A new year of designer furniture
Furniture is ushering in the new year with several new works of designer
furniture, created by some of todays best-know Danish designers.
include an extraordinarily comfortable stackable chair Shape
designed by Susanne Grønlund, the surprisingly simple and versatile
Klik klak bench by Jan Egeberg and Morten Thing, an exquisite new veneer
version of the Stingray rocking chair which Thomas Pedersen has
designed so you can order it upholstered or partly upholstered in a range
of gorgeous colours and a stylish new coffee table called Icicle,
also by Thomas Pedersen. The latter piece features a dynamic design that
perfectly matches the Stingray sofa, but also other classic and modern
veneer version of the Stingray rocker was created by the young Danish
designer Thomas Pedersen, and was conceived as an innovative reworking
of Pedersens earlier Stingray in plastic. Thomas Pedersens
rising prominence in the international design world can be partly explained
by his remarkable ability to challenge familiar assumptions and his unwavering
persistence of which Stingray is clearly an example. Who would
have thought that an "old-fashioned" rocking chair could be
given new meaning and become one of todays modern classics?
The new version of Stingray is available in oak, walnut and the African
wood makassar, whose grain beautifully accentuates the chairs organic
contours which were inspired by the sea. Stingray can also be ordered
in an upholstered version, offering hours and hours of enjoyable relaxation.
SHAPE is a stackable chair created by Danish designer Susanne Grønlund.
Its construction is based on the inherent properties of wood, and it makes
full use of these in a geometric design that provides strength, lightness,
flexibility and extraordinary comfort all at the same time. The
chair is unusual in that it both continues and refreshes the Scandinavian
design tradition, while also adding a touch of humour. SHAPE is available
in oak, walnut and makassar, and in lime, white and black glossy laminate.
The frame is available in polished and matt chrome.
ICICLE is a stylish new coffee table designed by Thomas Pederson, who
also designed the STINGRAY rocking chair. ICICLE is distinguished by its
organic design and dynamic look making it a perfect match for not
only the STINGRAY sofa, but also other classic and modern furniture. ICICLE
is available in black and white laminate, with walnut, oak and black-lacquered
klak is a new, surprisingly flexible bench created by the Danish design
team Morten Thing and Jan Egeberg. The bench was originally created for
the Polka Dot Gallery to provide a place where visitors could study the
works of art without disturbing the eye or occupying space in the room.
As the name suggests, the bench is easy to unfold and then fold up again
click, clack. The design is simple, and the bench is
intended to adapt to its surroundings without being intrusive but
still to suddenly create place where people can sit down. A mobile base
that can carry 8 folded benches is also available.
