Drape Collection by Christopher Stuart
Christopher Stuart, our favourite American master of sleek and sculptural forms, has launched an alluring collection of furniture at the London Design Fair.
The uniquely sensual shapes of the Drape chair and shelf are made with fibreglass "digitally draped" using CAD software, designed to mimic the effect of a silky fabric draped over a chair or a shelf. The results are surprisingly tactile and inviting, oddly organic and futuristic at the same time.

For sculptural furniture with an organic vibe try the Fjord armchair from Moroso, the Toadstool sofa from Missana and the Baobab side table from Moustache.
The Hive suspension light from Graypants looks beautifully organic but is in fact made from recycled corrugated cardboard using precision laser cutting technology. We also like the simple, sculptural shape of the Material pendant from New Works, especially in natural materials such as terracotta or cork. The Dusk Dawn table lamp from Ghidini 1961 also looks equally sculptural and organic.

Architect Stephane Malka's passion is to renew urban life by making clever use of under-utilised spaces in cities. This remarkable house in the Boulogne Billancourt area of Paris is a great example.
Lisbon-based design brand Dooq has steered away from traditional Portuguese furniture design by creating a collection of furniture that thrives on unexpected contrasts in styles, shapes and materials.
