On my radar: 5 homeware finds for April

While I didn’t get out to Salone del Mobile Milan this year – the annual furniture and design extravaganza – a host of new homeware launches have caught my eye recently. So here are five new finds for April, from affordable smart lighting solutions that can easily be incorporated into the home to modular sofas and simple side tables, enjoy! Lune sofa by Jaime Hayon for Fritz Hansen Fritz Hansen has launched a new modular sofa called Lune designed by Jaime Hayon. Born out of Hayon’s previous designs for the Danish company – the Ro wingback chair and the cocooning Fri armchair – Lune has the same curvaceous lines and smooth, sculptural contours. The name in Danish means the feeling of everything being just right or something being at an ideal temperature – a little bit like hygge, it could be lying on the sofa under a favourite blanket or the snow falling outside while a fire burns warm inside. The Lune sofa comes in a multitude of possibilities, from a small two-seater to a large, …

On my radar: recent furniture finds

With a whirlwind, design-packed September, taking in the delights of London Design Festival, I’m sharing some of my recent furniture finds that have caught my attention over the past few weeks. There really was so much to see and take in, but I’ve whittled it down to: the best stackable chairs and stools, the smartest, minimalist lounge chairs and consciously-designed tables, plus new updated versions of design classics that you need to know about. PAIR by Benjamin Hubert for Fritz Hansen Previewed at London Design Festival last month before the official launch at Orgatec trade fair in Cologne, young, up-and-coming London-based designer Benjamin Hubert has designed a stacking chair for Fritz Hansen. Designed and built to stand the test of time, the chair has been developed and refined over three years using more than 30 prototypes. Embracing Fritz Hansen’s long-established aesthetic for well-crafted modernist forms, the minimalist design is made of a form-pressed plywood seat shell with an injection-moulded polycarbonate backrest, building on the techniques already used for Arne Jacobsen’s famous Series 7 and Ant …

Objects by Fritz Hansen

Objects by the Republic of Fritz Hansen

This week marks the start of Salone del Mobile, Milan’s annual furniture fair and design week, for which design aficionados descend on the glamorous Italian city to check out the latest designs, swill down prosecco and snack on gelato. I’m not there but I did want to bring you some new product launches that have caught my eye and flashed up in my inbox… One such highlight is the Republic of Fritz Hansen’s new accessories line Objects. It comprises twelve beautifully simple designs for the home by the likes of design duo Studio Roso, Wednesday architecture and Spanish designer Jaime Hayon. Just like the Danish brand’s furniture, the new pieces show an attention to detail and a focus on materials that are appealing to touch. Designed to engage the senses, the objects range from a solid brass candleholder and molded veneer tray table to soft cashmere throws and sculptural tea trays. Says Fritz Hansen, ‘Objects is a unique collection of design items that reflects our passion for good design with a purpose. Like our furniture, Objects is a statement that can add a touch of …
