We just back home from London, 100% Design was brilliant and we prepared a little review of what we found through the four days of exhibitions. Check it out!
London-based bespoke kitchen manufacturer deVOL exhibited the new kitchen range called “Air”.In addition to the Classic and Shaker kitchen range from DeVOL, the new Air kitchen range is entirely hand made by carpenters. Unlike the traditional hand painted look of Georgian and Shaker styled furniture, the Air kitchen range sports a new, contemporary look, designed by deVOL.
Sweden-based Claesson Koivisto Rune has designed a chair which was premiered.The Röhsska chair follows a Scandinavian modern tradition of wooden chair design, but is distinctly contemporary in shape and proportions. The chair is made of 100% wood and is made in Sweden by furniture company, Swedese. The chairs have a special detail that does not seem to appear in the production versions. Each chair features two holes, placed at random, which is taken from the museum’s logo. The chair was initially designed for the centennial celebration of the Röhsska Museum of Design and Decorative Arts in Gothenburg, which is Sweden’s only museum for design, fashion and handicrafts.
Neil Musson and Jono Retallick have designed ‘Collider,’ a new artwork created specifically for the entrance of 100% Design 2012. This is the first joint project of the designer duo. Through Collider, they have attempted to refer to the positive effects of artistic collaboration and networks of ideas which lead to unexpected conclusions. Musson and Retallick have designed Collider, taking inspiration from neural systems responding to electrical signals and mycelia, an intricate fungal network spreading nutrients across vast areas. The installation is made of various undulating sculptural shapes, referencing the silent communication between birds in flight.
Delightfull launched Botti, an amazing suspension lamp, covered by a golden mantle, ideal to adorn living room or dining room, It is conceived by vintage and retro inspiration in musicians of the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s and 80’s and woodwind instruments. With Delightfull’s exhibition was also BRABBU pieces: SIKA, an imposing chair made with reddish leather covered by brass tackles and the imposing arms and headrest, resembling a deer’s fur and antlers. EARTH was also there, the chair that was inspired in the world’s movement and that is composed by hammered brass and soft dark green velvet. Composing this ambience was PADAUNG, a full of personality stool composed by ash wood and brushed brass rings, inspired by the beauty and strensht of PADAUNG women that use these rings on the neck since their childhood.
