Our pick of the products new to market

Words by Sophie Tolhurst

1. QuickStand Eco
By Humanscale

QuickStand Eco converts any horizontal surface into a sit/stand desk. Available in laptop, single or dual monitor configurations, the minimal design includes cable management and uses Humanscale’s self-locking mechanism for height adjustments.

2. Ceto Lighting Collection
By Ross Gardam

Gardam experimented with optic glassblowing techniques to achieve the ripples beneath a smooth outer shape – their organic form and delicate luminosity referencing an ocean's tranquillity. The range includes chandeliers, floor lamps, wall lighting and pendants.

3. End Grain
by Havwoods

Using the striking ringed cross-section of the trunk, the End Grain range from Havwoods offers this traditional and characterful wooden flooring in 16 natural wooden tones. While end grain is naturally tough and durable, the boards have been backed for further stability.

4. Pluvio Table
By Matteo Nunziati for Kreoo

Named after the Latin ‘pluvia’ for rain, Pluvio’s marble top looks like liquid rippled by a falling drop, with its ripples deeper in the centre and smoothing towards the table's edge. The table has a circular marble base, with the frame and legs in metal.

5. Adell
By Lievore + Altherr Désile Park for Arper

A soft, nature-inspired design, Adell is shaped like a pebble and textured with a tree ring-inspired pattern. The shell is 80% recycled polypropylene and the chair is constructed without glue for recyclability. Upholstery and base options allow for use indoors or outdoors.

6. Clikclax
By Zahava Elenberg

A flexible physical distancing system, suitable for workplaces or retail point of sale, that can be constructed quickly without tools – simply by clicking its pieces together. The colour range is inspired by the Australian landscape, while custom kits are also available.

7. Foil series
By Ceramiche Refin

These metal-look ceramic tiles mimic hand-beaten sheet metal while offering the technical performance of stoneware. Finishes include Aluminium, Corten, Burnish, Titanium and Verdigris. The tiles can be used indoors and out for floors and other surfaces.

8. Kite Armchair
By Nendo for Stellar Works

A compact armchair designed for the smaller spaces of commercial and hospitality interiors; an option for corridors, lift lobbies and entrances with the comfort and privacy afforded by a backrest. Different backrest heights and seat depths are available.

9. SI-SI
By Meneghello Paolelli Associati for SCAB

The repeated sound in the name reflects a simple formula: a single component being used twice, as the backrest and seat. It's available in three galvanised and painted steel options – smooth, dotted cutouts or vertical cuts – and a fourth wooden slatted version.

10. Pigeon Light (reissue)
By Very Good & Proper

Celebrating 20 years since its creation by Very Good & Proper (VG&P) co-founder Ed Carpenter for a project on his Master's degree, the simple design of a vacuum formed shell on a wooden perch has been updated with fully recyclable plastic, beech base, and powder-coated metal stand.
