While the pieces are designed for the outdoors, they&#8217;d work equally well inside the home as well.
The Seam chairs are made in such a way that’s not too different from tailoring a piece of clothing, with its “seam” detail making up the spine. Working with sheet metal, the chairs are formed by cutting, folding, and joining the material, much like you would a piece of fabric, bringing a fresh approach to Tait’s line which includes their signature wire chairs. Seam includes a dining chair, stacking chair, bar stool, dining table, café table, and bar table, all available in a palette of rich colors that reference Australia’s coastlines, terrains, and flora. Besides being a distinct design detail, the opening below the seam

With offices leaning towards open working environments, the need for smaller, more private spaces has popped up, making Focus a practical necessity. The semi-private pods are designed to reduce extraneous noise and give one person or a couple of people a comfortable spot to work and possibly collaborate without distractions. For this month&#8217;s <a href="https://design-milk.com/column/deconstruction/"  rel="nofollow noopener" data-wpel-link="internal">Deconstruction</a>, Teknion and PearsonLloyd share a look at the extensive design process behind their Zones Focus pod.

The new direction marks the launch of designer <a href="https://www.marcelwanders.com/"  rel="nofollow noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Marcel Wanders&#8217;</a> latest design, the Furrow Sofa, which looks to have the same soft smooth feeling an old baseball glove would have.
The curvy sofa was inspired by the natural beauty of Puglia, including its warm brown soil that enriches the olive trees. Its rounded back and sides aim to feel like a cocoon around the user while its reddish-brown leather and saddle stitching offer additional tailored coziness.

Navone continues to add to the collection offering plenty of styles, shapes, and colors to outfit just about any patio, porch, or terrace. The latest pieces debuted at Maison&Object in January.

They aim to give designers much-deserved, yet hard to get, experience and exposure while taking them through the process from idea to actual product that&#8217;s ready to sell.

Cast iron is typically used for building bridges or in heavy-duty machinery, making it an unexpected choice of material in a furniture collection. Then to throw in a contrast of materials, like soft fabrics for the upholstery, marble for the tabletops, and wood for the bench seats, the pieces appear fresh and functional. Brut is designed for commercial and residential spaces for resting or socializing, and it includes two sofas, an armchair, two benches, and a variety of tables in different shapes and sizes.

Tom Fereday’s DesignByThem Collection Expands with the Bow Bench

                                In 2015, Australian designer <a href="http://www.tomfereday.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Tom Fereday</a> launched the <a href="https://design-milk.com/bow-chair-tom-fereday/"  rel="noopener" data-wpel-link="internal">Bow Chair</a> for DesignByThem to kick off the <a href="https://www.designbythem.com/collections/bow"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Bow Collection</a> of solid wood furniture. For the second release, he designed a two-seater bench with the same arching backrest as the chair. The <a href="https://www.designbythem.com/collections/bow/products/bow-bench"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Bow Bench&#8217;s</a> slender silhouette mixes curvy and straight lines that accentuate the grain of the wood.
The smooth, sweeping backrest lends itself to a unique structure that does away with the rectangular footprint of a typical bench. The result is a sculptural form that’s also comfortable when sitting. The Bow Bench is available in solid oak, walnut, or American ash (natural or black stained), with the option to purchase an upholstered seat pad. Photos by Pete Daly.

                                It&#8217;s not a sofa or a chair or a bed, but maybe a little bit of each all rolled into five modular components that can be rearranged into endless configurations for lounging. <a href="https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/into-form-by-ilco-at-salone-satellite-2018-art-design#/"  rel="nofollow noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Into-form</a> began as a project by Koa Pham and Madeleine Duflot, who were later joined by Ania Marciniak, all three of which were graduates of Central Saint Martins in 2016. The trio formed design studio <a href="https://www.instagram.com/ilco_design/"  rel="nofollow noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">ilco</a> and perfected the sculptural design with hopes of enhancing the user&#8217;s lounge experience.
Into-form, with its five components, explores the gestalt concept where the whole form is more than the individual parts that create it. The fives shapes in five different colors are available for the user to arrange to their needs. Once the pieces are in place, the result is a functional sculpture and every time there’s a new arrangement, there’s a new gestalt. Along with the five components, the user

                                With people moving from place to place, especially city dwellers, furniture needs to work in a multitude of situations. It&#8217;s easy to go out there and spend less on disposable furniture every time we move, but it&#8217;s money down the drain and more trash in our overly filled landfills. Enter <a href="https://civilspace.com/"  rel="nofollow noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">CIVIL</a>. They&#8217;re a furniture brand that&#8217;s decided to explore a different approach – modular furniture for modular people – focusing on clean lines and accessibility for today&#8217;s nomadic culture. While the CIVIL brand calls New York City home, their Scandinavian roots run deep as third generation Norwegian furniture makers. Their heritage runs throughout their designs, as well as the way they run the business, aiming to bring the best furniture possible to more people without cutting any corners.
For those of us that love modern design, you know how high the prices can be, making it quite a stretch sometimes.

While it’s a playful design, it’s also flexible and functional and could work in different spaces.

                                We last checked in with <a href="http://www.elliotbastianon.com/"  rel="nofollow noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Elliot Bastianon</a> in <a href="https://design-milk.com/new-furniture-elliot-bastianon/"  rel="nofollow noopener" data-wpel-link="internal">2015</a> and <a href="https://design-milk.com/unexpected-furniture-made-from-acoustic-panels/"  rel="nofollow noopener" data-wpel-link="internal">2016</a> and the Canberra, Australia based furniture designer recently released a new collection of work called Straight Lines. The pieces are composed of rectilinear structures made from wood with upholstery that bulges through the open sections, creating a contrast of soft and hard.
The Straight Lines furniture comprises a sofa, chairs, coffee tables, and a bench, all with a similar gridded form that adds an element of repetition. Some works remain unfinished with colorful upholstery, while others are finished in playful colors.

The La Redonda Chair’s Design Plays with a Two-Dimensional Circle

                                                <a href="https://design-milk.com/the-la-redonda-chairs-design-plays-with-a-two-dimensional-circle/la-redonda-chair-bodegon-cabinet-1/" data-wpel-link="internal"><img src="https://design-milk.com/images/2018/02/La-Redonda-chair-Bodegon-Cabinet-1-810x540.jpg" alt="The La Redonda Chair&#8217;s Design Plays with a Two-Dimensional Circle" /></a>
                                Playing with the two-dimensional shape of a circle, <a href="http://www.bodegoncabinet.com/wordpress/"  rel="nofollow noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Bodegón Cabinet</a> designed the <a href="http://www.bodegoncabinet.com/wordpress/work/la-redonda/"  rel="nofollow noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">La Redonda Chair</a> that takes the circle into three-dimensional form. A single sheet of galvanized steel was cut out and bent twice to form the sculptural chair. By molding the steel, it transforms from a piece of flat material into an object that not only takes up space, it&#8217;s functional as a chair.
The design visually shifts the shape depending on where you’re standing. From the front at a certain distance, it looks like a circle, but rotate around it and it takes on geometric sculptural qualities that trick the eye. Photos by Denise Cárabez and Melisa Ramirez.
