Flex’s low-profile LED lighting – from 1.5mm to 2mm – and 8mm width makes it ideal for hard-to-access, space-constrained places, while a 3M self-adhesive backing tape provides a robust and durable fixing. Both single and four-colour (red, green, blue and white) versions are available, supported by dedicated drivers, controllers and profiles that offer a quick solution to most indoor installations.

4 Mat by Normann

Copenhagen This collection leverages renewable, durable hemp and eelgrass, a type of seaweed, as superior alternatives to traditional 3D shell chair materials. The collection aims to revolutionise conventional furniture production methods through minimising environmental impact, repurposing production waste, and facilitating end-of-life recycling.

5 Amtico Décor x National Trust by Amtico

Amtico has launched its second collection in collaboration with the National Trust, following the launch of the first in 2022.

6 KI-ink by KI

8 Dancing Queen by Annika Reed Studio
