1. Molten Pendant

2. Citizen Highback Lounge Chair

3. Tape
by Ever Life Design

4. Crafted Series: Warp Winding
by Milliken

Adding to Milliken’s Crafted Series, which celebrates a resurgent interest in craft, is a new statement design inspired by warp yarns stretched on a loom. The resulting design is characterised by geometric elements of stripes and blocks that are repeated irregularly.

5. March Lite
by Sir Kenneth Grange and SmithMatthias

This lighter version of the March stacking chair uses less material, thanks to a 2D veneer on the backrest, and is a pared-back form of the original. The ash chairs come in natural or painted finishes with an optional upholstered seat.

Abode is the first entirely wooden furniture range for steel storage specialists Bisley. The modular bedroom furniture is designed for single-living environments such as army housing, hostels and care homes. A range of finishes and closures is available.

8. Keglen
by BIG Ideas and Louis Poulsen

Designed in 2017 for BIG’s Tirpitz Museum in Blåvand, Denmark, Keglen is now released as a range of four pendants. A curved glass insert diffuses the downwards light, while a discreet opening in the top of the cone gently illuminates the cord.

9. CleansePoint Collection
by Imagin and Dexter Moren Associates

These wall-mounted touch-free hand sanitiser dispensers fulfil a newly important role in public spaces. The four designs are easily refillable, and have optional finishes, colours and materials, plus motion-sensing technology and integrated lights.

10. Exagon Silence Biolight
by Filippo Cannata for OLEV

Hexagonal in shape, Filippo Cannata's lights use a biolight system to follow circadian cycles, but can be programmed via IoT tech. They provide acoustic absorption from a natural source, using lichen, which is light, fire-resistant and anti-static.
