in an attempt to update the construction of ‘simple’ wooden chairs, japanese designer ryuichi kozeki has created a prototype series with a distinct wedge-shaped part that connects the back and seat, creating a curve that perfectly supports the small of the back. presented at the greenhouse during this year’s stockholm furniture fair, the collection comes in a set that includes the chairs and a matching small table.

robert stadler has designed a new version of the drucker rattan chair, an icon of parisian bistros first created in 1885 by french furniture company maison drucker. combining traditional know-how of rattan manufacturing with the advantages of an aluminum base, the corso chair overcomes two weaknesses of the original design: the humidity that infiltrates by capillarity and the difficulty of stacking due to the reinforcing cross.all images © studio robert stadler

‘ruelle’ chair designed by philippe tabet for the italian brand infiniti combines cast aluminum with plywood. a ruelle (alley in french) is a place where someone goes to discover every corner of a city, its secrets, its traditions and bistros away from the chaos, filled with these wooden chairs very characteristic and typical. the chair reinterprets the spirit maintaining the important elements of the bistro chairs common in france, like the narrow and wide backrest, and focuses the attention on the elegance of form and softness achieved through a material such as aluminum.

returning to orgatec 2018 to further their ideas on the future of work, VITRA debuts the ‘soft work’ sofa system by barber & osgerby. it explores how hotel lobbies, cafes, airports and even parks are becoming areas of work, whilst, in reverse, offices are becoming more public. with employees not tied to specific locations as much before, places and objects that were once considered as unsuitable workstations are now the preferred choice. and the ‘soft work’ sofa exemplifies this radical transition away from the desk archetype.

This year marks Ikea's 75th year in business, and to celebrate the company is dusting off old blueprints and reviving some designs from the past. The plan is to re-release selected pieces from three eras--the 1950s-'60s, '70s-'80s and '90s-'00s--and produce them in a limited quality in a line they're calling Gratulera.

Iconic Danish brand Fritz Hansen collaborated for the first time with Japanese design studio nendo on a dining chair that combines both Danish and Japanese qualities. The N01™ chair has a minimalist feel yet it comes together like a complicated puzzle comprising 23 veneer and solid wood pieces. The chair falls perfectly into the Fritz Hansen family while pushing the boundaries when it came time to actually make it.

Working with Dutch studio Scholten & Baijings—known for bringing a conceptual, candy-colored touch to established modern brands like Herman Miller, Maharam, and HAY—Ikea invited the designers to revisit a few of its salient classics. The studio’s limited-edition collection, Lyskaft (Swedish for “Luminosity”) brings a refreshed, edited take on the ubiquitous Poang lounge chair and Klippan sofa, with features that include new colored, textured seat covers and geometric, screw-on sofa legs that one might normally seek out on a site like Pretty Pegs, Bemz, or any number of cottage-industry specialists that have made a business model of selling niche, Ikea-specific accessories.
