Hamburg based designers Marcel Besau and Eva Marguerre have designed a beautifully poetic porcelain side table for Germany tableware brand Furstenberg.
The eye-catching design of the Plisago side table is inspired by opposites. The brittleness of porcelain is in contrast with the supple softness of fabric, hence the pattern of pleats which run down the side of the table like a billowing skirt that has been gathered around the waist. The design and manufacturing process is also full of contrasts. The young designers used a customised CAD software to create the design, which is then turned into reality by Furstenberg, one of the oldest porcelain manufacturers in Germany, using traditional craftsmanship techniques. The result is an intriguing side table that is strong yet delicate and full of personality.
Create a warm, inviting look by combining soft fabrics with contemporary organic shapes. Try the La Folie armchair from Dooq, the Infinity modular sofa from Stellar Works and the Touch coffee table from Moustache.
We love the natural wood veneer lights of LZF, such as the Link suspension light, for their delicate yet strong design. We also like the organic feel of the Scraplight Hive suspension light from Graypants and the Vapeur table light from Moustache.

There was a time when the use of marble was largely restricted to floors, posh kitchen counters and grave statutes. And then, at some point around the mid-noughties, marble was everywhere. Could the same be happening to terrazzo?

Detractors of minimalism often decry the cold, impersonal nature of the style. However, when executed intelligently, minimalist designs can be surprisingly expressive. The furniture collections of designer Niko Koronis is a case in point.
