                                After spotting <a href="http://www.blastation.com/products/stool/stove/stove"  rel="nofollow noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Stove</a> at an exhibition in New York last year, <a href="http://www.blastation.com/"  rel="nofollow noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Blå Station</a> partnered with designer <a href="http://www.gabriel-tan.com/"  rel="nofollow noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Gabriel Tan</a> to add it to their collection. With people downsizing and smaller homes becoming more of the norm, the same can be said for restaurants and bars also, Tan asked himself, &#8220;What is the smallest functional chair, that could still be comfortable to sit on?&#8221; Seeking an answer, he explored the Shaker movement and came up with a three-legged chair that was inspired by the Shaker stove.
Not only does Stove solve the size problem by being fairly compact, it can also be hung on a peg or a rail (which Tan also designed) until it’s needed again, thereby saving space. While teaching a summer class in 2012, Studio Gorm’s John and Wonhee Arndt shared with Tan their trips to the Hancock Shaker Village in Massachusetts. That led to a visit and

Hardy Is a Tailored Sofa Designed to Feel like a Glove

                                Inspired by English tailoring, designer José Manuel Ferrero of <a href="http://www.estudihac.com/" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">estudi(H)ac</a> created the Hardy sofa for <a href="http://www.blascovila.com/?lang=en" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Blasco&amp;Vila</a>. The design scales back by removing unnecessary bulk and ornamentation to result in a streamlined silhouette that leans classic while still feeling cozy like a glove.
The sophisticated sofa pays homage with both its name and design details to iconic Savile Row tailor, Edwin Hardy Amies. The sides reveal an unexpected feature with arm details that resemble American cuffs and shirts. The layered fabrics can be customized, but we love the subtle nature of the contrasting colors.

Guillermo Santoma’s freewheeling and eloquent style manifests itself in a lush cream sofa, juxtaposing the two-sided chaperone chair structure with a super modern amorphous form in rubber. Fredrik Paulsen’s side table and console turn the spotlight on a brand new and unique technique that combines anodized aluminum with his signature rainbow tie-dye.

Because of their expertise in working with polyurethane foam, Gufram was actually one of the main suppliers for Italian discos in the 70’s and worked with imaginative and eccentric Italian designers to design innovative seating.
The new Roxanne armchair is characterized by a groove along the perimeter of the seat called The Tube that’s useful as a pocket for purses, phones or documents, making it an ideal choice for clubs, restaurants, hotel lobbies and lounges. Made completely from polyurethane foam, the armchair has an ergonomically friendly design that’s comfortable and inviting to sit in.

Made of iroko wood, the pieces feature clean lines and timeless silhouettes that are perfect for home patios or hotel terraces. The warm wooden structures are paired with upholstered cushions available in 25 pattern/color variants, but we&#8217;re partial to the one featured in the images – a graphic, monochromatic print.
The iroko wood is given an oil finish which intensifies its rich color and keeps it protected in the outdoor environment. As with most wood left outside, the finish will develop a natural patina over time. The CAPRI collection includes: 2 and 3 seat sofas, lounge armchair, dining chair with armrests, stool, dining tables, coffee side table, pouf, and sun bed. Photos by Max Rommel.

                                Designer <a href="http://www.antonioarico.com/" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Antonio Aricò</a> was commissioned by <a href="http://www.altreforme.com/it/" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">altreforme</a>, an Italian company known for their high-end furniture made of aluminum, to design this indoor/outdoor furniture collection. When Aricò set out to design the <a href="http://www.altreforme.com/en/collection/6615" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">GALACTICA</a> collection, he looked to iconic designer Eileen Grey and chose to create each piece focused on &#8220;&#8216;disproportionate&#8217; asymmetries, primitive volumes and graphic edges&#8221;. The personality-filled designs have a futuristic feel with strong geometry, bold silhouettes, and metallic colors.

Included in the aluminum, 10-piece collection are chairs, tables, a bench, screen, cabinet, accessories, and mirror, all of which were presented in Rho Fiera at Salone Del Mobile and just recently the collection landed in Aricò’s home region, Calabria. Aricò collaborated with Australian designer Richard Greenacre on the project.

Victor Castanera’s Velar Lounge Chair Inspired by the Latest Range Rover

                                                <a href="http://design-milk.com/victor-castaneras-velar-lounge-chair-inspired-by-the-latest-range-rover/velar-chair-victor-castanera-land-rover-1/" data-wpel-link="internal"><img src="http://design-milk.com/images/2017/11/Velar-chair-Victor-Castanera-land-rover-1-810x566.jpg" alt="Victor Castanera&#8217;s Velar Lounge Chair Inspired by the Latest Range Rover" /></a>
                                Barcelona-based designer <a href="http://www.victorcastanera.com/" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Victor Castanera</a> completed a collaboration with <a href="https://www.landrover.com/market-selector/index.html" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Land Rover</a> where five European designers were asked to create an object that was inspired by the new <a href="https://www.landrover.es/vehicles/range-rover-velar/circle/paris-design-week-reveal.html" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Range Rover Velar</a>. Castanera&#8217;s contribution is the <a href="http://www.victorcastanera.com/Velar-lounge-chair" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Velar lounge chair</a>, which was inspired by &#8220;the proportions and the duality of dimensions and shapes that Velar has between the body and the cabin of the car.&#8221;
While the seat and the back are constructed of the same material, the two components are made in entirely different ways. The seat is made from solid ash wood with a fairly flat base that curves up to create the sides of the chair. The back is a bent wood veneer that appears thinner for a more delicate look. Much like the Range Rover Velar, the chair’s design is complex with careful attention paid to every detail.
