Upholstered in Aerial fabric : Totley Orange and Rowridge Blue, the Long Eaton is a smart looking bench.
The 55th edition of the Salone del Mobile in Milan has just closed its doors on the design extravaganza for another year. The sun was out, the city was buzzing and there was plenty to see... As well as a plethora of new and interesting products, the sheer scale of the event that spread throughout the city was impressive; from the city's main exhibition centre at Fiera Milano to the satellite exhibitions in grand palaces and disused shopping arcades to a theatrical Italian Palazzo set in the back of a delivery van! Here are some of our highlights:
First stop... Fiera Milano and the Zanotta stand.
In homage to Piero Bottini and a re-edition of his Fenice table that he designed for Villa Muggia in 1936, Zanotta's stand (styled by Studio Salaris) recreated the minimalist interiors of the now abandoned villa. Using iconic pieces from the Zanotta collection past and present, walls of muted green and vegetation growing into the rooms, Studio Salaris created the atmosphere of a derelict architectural masterpiece left to the advances of nature. We were delighted that our Quayside Pendant Light in jet black featured in this deserted setting, suspended above the iconic Super Studio table from 1970.
Next up... a wonderful evening was spent among the 'New Austrian Design Perspectives' set within the tranquil setting of the 1930's Villa Necchi Campiglio.
The next day the outdoor theme continued with a visit to Gallery Rossana Orlandi; a gallery, showroom, retail store and courtyard space which offers an eclectic mix of design pieces set in a former tie Factory.
And then on to see the work of Paola Lenti. A show of great inspiration: a beautiful setting, inviting furniture and a fabulous approach to colour blocking, a real delight!
These little fellows have just made their debut at this year's Maison & Objet... New for 2016 the Ginger Hook is happy to help hold your coat, hat and scarf for you... just pick a colour!
A sleek and striking look for winter... our Quayside Pendant Light and Burgess Compact Table are now available in Black.
New arrival... Our new spun aluminium pendant light, the Quayside, is a minimal take on the industrial pendant lights from a bygone era. We'll be launching the Quayside in four different colours (red, white, grey and yellow) at this year's Clerkenwell Design Week: May 19th - 21st. We'll be up on the 2nd Floor in the Farmiloe Building... only 4 weeks to go...
At last... Spring is here... and so, we're delighted to say, is the first of our new Hyde Outside stacking stools... The new Hyde Outside is made from recyclable polyethylene making it light, durable and strong enough to survive even the harshest elements of the great British summer!
We look forward to launching the first batch very soon...
Maison & Objet in Paris... a Mecca for the design fraternity. This was my first trip to the show and I'm pleased to say that it was everythng I'd hoped it would be... design, colour and plenty of innovation. We look forward to being able to show there ourselves one day... Innermost
We're delighted to announce that Wagstaff have welcomed the Hyde and Burgess Compact ranges into their window display at their showroom in Brewhouse Yard, Clerkenwell.
If you're in the area it's well worth a trip to their showroom - there's lots of interesting things to see.
Wool Week 2014 is upon us... a week in which to celebrate this unique, natural, renewable and biodegradable fibre. As part of Wool Week, The Campaign for Wool Interiors Collection is a free exhibiton that is being held between 5th - 12th October in London's iconic Southwark Cathedral. Here in honour of the 5th anniversary of The Campaign for Wool, Bridgette Kelly and Arabella McNie have brought together an inspiring collection of fabrics, furnishings, flooring and artwork that showcase this natural fibre's aesthetic and versitility. We're delighted to say that our Hyde Stool is part of the collection and sits in great company alongside the distinctive April sofa by Modus, striking fabric by Wallace Sewell , contemporary felt laundry baskets by Hey Sign and the playful Hush pod by Freyja Sewell.
To view the full range of products on show please feel free to visit Southwark Cathedral this week, or alternatively you can view them online at The Campaign For Wool's Gallery.
London Open House weekend... always a wonderful opportunity to get out and about to see behind the facades of some of London's great architecture. This year we were thrilled to be able to take a peek inside the Derwent London Angel building; an inspiring example of what can be done to transform an early 80s office block. With perfectly executed finishes and crisp detailing by Allford Hall Monaghan Morris the existing concrete frame of this six-storey office building has been re-used and re-wrapped with a highly energy-efficient glazed skin. Visitors were able to enjoy the main atrium of the building which featured a striking Ian McChesney sculpture and seat in the foyer, as well as make it up onto the roof garden with its impresive view over the city.
The Angel Building was shortlisted for the RIBA Stirling Prize 2011 and has won awards from RIBA London, the British Council for Offices and New London Architecture.
London Open House has now shut it's doors for 2014, but we're already looking forward to next year's event.
It's September... so that can mean only one thing... It's the London Design Festival... Now in its 11th year, the London Design Festival is an annual event held to "celebrate and promote London as the design capital of the world". This is a great event that's always evolving and always brimming with new and exciting ideas. We love being involved in this festival and this year we're delighted to be collaborating with the creative textile duo Wallace Sewell who will be displaying their wares at Designjunction. Known for their colourful woven scarves and their imaginitive upholstery designs for Transport for London, Wallace Sewell have recently produced a range of upholstery fabric for US manufacturers Designtex. These are bold and beautiful fabrics and we're thrilled to have been able to use them to upholster three of our furniture pieces: our Hatton Chair, our Finsbury Sofa and our Barnsbury Bench. We hope you'll agree that they look pretty smart! We'd love you to come and see for yourself, so please do pop along to the Old Sorting Office on New Oxford Street 18th - 21st Sept, where these eye catching items can be seen on the Wallace Sewell Stand (S4) on the second floor.
Designed by Guy Hollaway Interiors, the Workshop is a new serviced office, housed in an impressive 5 storey building on the Kent coast. Providing flexible workspace and a range of different working environments The Workshop is described as "A hive of activity and creativity with a community of like-minded individuals dedicated to growth - The Workshop really has only just begun. It offers the latest in office design and technology whilst providing flexible work space and meeting rooms in an area surrounded by art galleries, restaurants, theatres, and of course, the beach."
The 6 metre long stainless steel tube slide was installed between the upper floors to create a sense of fun for the staff and allow them to whizz between floors in 3 seconds! We're delighted to see that our Hyde Stools and Burgess Compact Tables also add their own unique sense of playfulness to the space and with it a splash of colour to the industrial interior.
If you fancy a trip across the Channel you can now see the Hyde and Burgess Compact ranges at Moore Design, a furniture dealer in the heart of Paris. With their stylish new showroom and their varied range of products this looks like a great place to visit...
