Archives For Milan Furniture Fair

Rene Siebum’s new “Wardrobe” project marries the lines of Shaker wooden furniture with an edgy, modern shapes.

Inspired by geometry, he presented the collection in Milan, where he described his work as “exploring the boundaries, not taking the old customs of woodworking as fact.”

Tessellating wood pieces within a coat rack or blocky stools—It all adds up to designs that are simply spectacular.

Dutch industrial designer Hella Jongerius is one of our absolute favorite creative minds; we’ve coveted her early work with Droog, her sofa for Vitra, and the wall hangings she created for IKEA’s PS collection.

Now, she’s branching out again with her first collection as the newly appointed design director for Dutch firm Danskina. Launched at the 2014 Salone Internazionale del Mobile (also known as the Milan Furniture Fair), the four styles are called Bold, Duotone, Multitone, and Cork & Felt.

The collection also prompted one of the cutest stop motion videos we’ve ever seen about… rugs.
