|Contrasts create new
Predictability is a bore - and is one reason that even in home furnishing there will be the occasional revolution. At present the protest against conformity carries more weight that it has for a long time, but at the same time there must be room to relax, listen to music and just chat after a busy day. Should the soft upholstery and the invitation to put your feet up give you a feeling of déja-vu, have a closer look at the furniture and the next millennium will present itself in the lines. A dynamic simplicity, multi-functional features and very distinct colourways in a milky finish all mark the new Softline 21 collection from the Danish company K. Balling-Engelsen, which nevertheless manages to remain faithful to its own high standard for excellent design, quality, the use of natural materials, and environmental awareness.
Pure provocation with amazing comfort. A chaiselongue/rest chair in Courtisane on legs of steel. The 11 "cylinders" come in black, blue, lime or orange. Design Kurt Brandt.
