Our pick of products new to market
Words by Sophie Tolhurst
by Barber & Osgerby for Mutina
Glazed porcelain tiles are available in three versions of five colourways inspired by London's streets: Base, subtle and tonal palettes; Poly, which features occasional contrasting colours, and Mono, with the contrasts of Poly but in monochrome.
A moulded backrest with patterned perforations acts like a mesh backing in terms of ventilation, but with far more durability, making this chair suitable for education and workplace settings. The four-leg design is stackable, with castors and a folding tablet arm optional. The range also includes a task chair.
Smart Ocean Chair
This chair comes from a partnership with Bureo, an emerging venture focusing on the prevention of ocean plastic pollution, that began in 2016. Recycled fishing nets are transformed into nylon pellets for the chair’s manufacture, while the design and functionality is otherwise that of the Diffrient Smart chair.
New colours for 2019
by Corian Design
Introducing a new aesthetic for the brand, 19 additions to the Corian range take inspiration from building materials, both natural and urban. The former includes mineral and woodgrain looks, such as Nuwood and Linear (marble-like); the latter includes those that mimic terrazzo and aggregates.
by Philippe Starck for Duravit
Twenty-five years after Starck 1, Starck’s first collaboration with Duravit, and with many collaborations since, they now present their first new line of accessories. The 16-element range is defined by a geometric ‘T’ shape emerging from a round base, available in Chrome and Black Matt finishes.
