                                CAPRI is an outdoor collection of modern furniture designed by <a href="http://matteothunatelier.com/" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Matteo Thun Atelier</a> for Italian brand <a href="http://verywood.it/" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Very Wood</a>. 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.

For this month&#8217;s <a href="http://design-milk.com/column/deconstruction/" data-wpel-link="internal">Deconstruction</a>, Skram takes us behind the scenes to see how this beautiful table comes to light. Take a look.
Altai is a family of seating and tables that we launched in 2015. The defining characteristic of this body of work is what we call the leg element (others have said that they look like leg warmers or rifle barrels or any number of other things), which we manifest with a complex computer-driven carving process and a great deal of hand work. Altai was our first collection that embraced applied

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.

Playing with Weight: The W8 Side Table by Alain Gilles for Ligne Roset

As you take a longer look at W8, you’ll notice elements of visual weight, effective weight, graphic fragility and graphic mass all at play. The stability of the side table comes from the carved Pietra Serena stone that acts as a ballast to ground the rounded curves at the base. The four slender lacquered metal rods that sweep up to the table top helps to visually balance out the weightiness of the table.

Well, a table&#8217;s base is made of things you&#8217;d normally find on top of a table and the blanket on the bed suddenly becomes part of the bed&#8217;s frame. Take a look.
The Blanket Bed is appropriately named, but instead of lying underneath the blanket, Alessandro Busana designed the blanket to become the headboard. Inspired by the soft and cozy, protected feeling a blanket provides, this bed turns it from an accessory and into a plush, rolled-up extension of the frame for you to rest your head on. While most dining tables are decked out with objects decorating the surface, the Cop Table, designed by Roberto Paoli, features those very objects as the base. The stylized “bottles” are designed in

A Minimalist Table Inspired by Classroom Desks from KROFT

The designer prides himself in handcrafting pieces with honest materials based on a design language inspired by the purity that comes from a commitment to purpose and function.
As such, the Doodle Table was inspired directly by Kroft’s childhood, mainly work desks that were used throughout classrooms. The table is inspired by the old classroom desks that featured adjustable chrome legs and simple clean lines. Kroft replaced the chrome legs with solid wood inserts that receive tenons that are inserted into the square tube legs. The table completely knocks down for easy shipping and comes in a variety of colors and finishes. The top is a high pressure laminate which offers maximum durability for dining or work. The metal frame is powder coated with a matte black finish.

Collection <a href="http://www.gallerialuisadellepiane.it/giacomo-moor/" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Vapore</a> comprises glass surfaces, wooden shelves, and a continuous rod of curved wood that acts as the legs and structure of each piece.
The solid beech rod was steam bent in certain spots to change direction in order to link all of the components together to become functional. The curved rod juxtaposed with the rigid glass and shelves creates a sense of tension throughout each piece. The Vapore collection includes a console table, mirror, table, corner console table, and bookcase that were exhibited at the Galleria Luisa Delle Piane in April.

                                When looking over the <a href="http://uhurudesign.com/projects/7835/fold-collection" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Fold Collection</a>, from Brooklyn-based <a href="http://uhurudesign.com/" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Uhuru</a>, you might be surprised to find out what inspired it, but once you know, you can totally see it perfectly. The folded metal forms reference flattened debris found throughout the company&#8217;s industrial Red Hook neighborhood, specifically the metal straps that bind objects to pallets and boxes.
They even took the idea a step further by replicating the natural patina that happens to the materials as they weather the outdoor elements. The pieces in the collection, which includes consoles, a bench, coffee table, and end tables, will age over time as well, slowly revealing character.

The duo explored natural materials from their home countries (Romania and Moldova) and how they were used in hopes of supporting local manufacturers and creating new, sustainable <a href="http://quintessencestory.wixsite.com/design/shop" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">products</a> that have a story.
The local craftsman they’re working with utilize skills passed down through their families, generation to generation, and by doing so, they’re keeping the traditional techniques alive while helping those families continue to earn a living. The collection focuses on using textiles, like linen, hemp yarn, manually woven hemp textiles, reed, and feathers, that could be paired with wooden structures. The result is a beautiful collection of goods with a feel-good story behind how they came to be.
