The two new designs invite relaxation with wider seats that up the comfort factor. The lounge chair is not only wider, it sits lower for a more relaxed feel. The sofa is able to sit multiple users comfortably.

The clean, geometric forms are paired with luxe upholstery resulting in visually enticing seating that’s enjoyable to touch.

Operating as a showroom, cafe, and workspace, the airy and repurposed warehouse wears a few visible remnants of its shipyard past, but today houses the Swedish brand’s collection of furniture, lighting and accessories in handsome fashion.

Inside, various interior tableaus decorated with Fogia’s 2019 Collection, intermingle with previous years’ designs, revealing a subtle eclecticism of color, form and texture. Presented alongside Fogia’s past catalog, the numerous pieces represent the brand’s continual commitment to

Just last month, Hanth Park became the first public space hosting furniture from the Print Your City initiative.

2018 Year in Review: Deconstruction

                                We love looking at modern design all day, every day, but it&#8217;s one thing to look at it and another thing to actually see how it&#8217;s made. It gives us all a new appreciation for the skill, time, and effort that goes into each product produced, and makes us love it a little bit more. Throughout 2018, we asked designers to share the ins and outs of their creations in our <a href="https://design-milk.com/column/deconstruction/"  rel="noopener" data-wpel-link="internal">Deconstruction</a> column and now we&#8217;re going to revisit them.

Patterns, folds, and geometric shapes are all a big part of her inspiration. When designing products, Lootah looks to interpret the Emirati culture, traditional craftsmanship, and contemporary design – and she&#8217;s just released three new product designs.

Lootah’s Mandoos collection finds inspiration in an important part of UAE culture and tradition, wooden chests that are embellished with brass nails called mandoos. Each mandoo is covered with designs and engravings, and while still displayed in many UAE homes, they no longer hold a person’s most valuable possessions as they once did.

The Mandoos collection celebrates the importance and history of the mandoo through the addition of modern design elements such as an intricate camel leather weave, embellished metallic studs, and leather straps. Each box is lined with teal colored suede, a color often found in Khous

                                                <a href="https://design-milk.com/buzzispace-goes-outdoors-with-the-buzzinordic-st900-series/buzzispace_buzzinordic-st900-1/" data-wpel-link="internal"><img src="https://design-milk.com/images/2018/11/BuzziSpace_BuzziNordic-ST900-1-810x540.jpg" alt="BuzziSpace Goes Outdoors with the BuzziNordic ST900 Series" /></a>
                                Most of the time we think of the Antwerp-based <a href="http://buzzi.space/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">BuzziSpace</a> as clever problem solvers for noise reduction in the office, but they&#8217;re also bringing their skills to the great outdoors with the BuzziNordic ST900 Series. Stäffan Thomasen created the <a href="http://buzzi.space/buzzinordic-st900/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">series</a> as a way to bring elegance outdoors and with their latest update, they&#8217;re releasing three new styles that will keep any outdoor environment elevated.

The BuzziNordic ST900 series is a trio of lounge pieces, including a daybed, single armchair, and a matching ottoman, made from Cumaru hardwood that’s durable enough to brave inclement weather. The vintage-inspired pieces have a Scandinavian aesthetic with the light wood finish and minimalist upholstered cushions in outdoor fabrics. While the three models are made for the outdoors, their modern and refined design could easily work inside as well.

Designed with a slender base, curved arm rests, and a flexible but supportive back, the two furniture pieces are dressed in the Hallingdal fabric from Kvadrat, giving them a classic yet contemporary look.

Wanghe Studio Designs the Childhood Series for “Beijing Drifters”

                                                <a href="https://design-milk.com/wanghe-studio-designs-the-childhood-series-for-beijing-drifters/childhood-series-wanghe-studio-1/" data-wpel-link="internal"><img src="https://design-milk.com/images/2018/11/Childhood-Series-Wanghe-Studio-1-810x437.jpg" alt="Wanghe Studio Designs the Childhood Series for &#8220;Beijing Drifters&#8221;" /></a>
                                Chinese designer Wang He has recently launched his Beijing-based <a href="http://www.wanghestudio.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Wanghe Studio</a> with the hope of presenting Chinese culture in a modern, design-focused way. At the 2018 <a href="https://www.londondesignfair.co.uk/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">London Design Fair</a>, his studio debuted a collection of living room furniture that was designed for the &#8220;Beijing Drifters,&#8221; a term used for young professionals who have yet to settle down. With no feelings of belonging, the <a href="http://www.wanghestudio.com/childhood-series"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Childhood Series</a> sets out to see if it&#8217;s possible to design furniture that could create that sense for those young adults living and working in Beijing.

In order to make that happen, He created five members for his furniture family – the Marshmallow Sofa, Lollipop Side Table, Hide & Seek Sideboard, Skateboard Coatrack, and the Arch Floor Mirror. The childhood-inspired pieces aim to bring a feeling of coziness by adding character and flexible functionality for those who use it.

                                Conventional ways of working are going by the wayside as we continue to see new ideas pop up for open offices, co-working spaces, and privacy furniture. Last year, Swedish furniture manufacturer <a href="http://www.blastation.com/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Blå Station</a> reimagined their <a href="https://design-milk.com/bob-boasts-bountiful-possibilities-for-seating/"  rel="noopener" data-wpel-link="internal">Bob modular seating system</a> to <a href="https://design-milk.com/bla-station-will-keep-you-comfortable-and-connected-in-the-office/"  rel="noopener" data-wpel-link="internal">work in offices, lounges, and public spaces</a>, all designed by Thomas Bernstrand and Stefan Borselius, with the addition of more curved modules and tech components. Now they&#8217;re taking it even further with <a href="http://www.blastation.com/products/product-families/bob-job"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">BOB Job</a> which proves work doesn&#8217;t mean you have to be stuck at your office desk.

BOB Job aims to be that perfect solution to outfit a casual and/or creative workspace with its modular sofa system that can be configured in an endless amount of ways. Besides the seating modules, you can add tables for drinks or your computer, shelves to house your magazines, documents, or gear, and partitions for added privacy. Plus there are outlets to
