The Tembo Lounge Chair from New Works functionally sits between a lounger and an armchair: Tembo’s extended arms invite you into its warm embrace. Its unique form allows the Tembo Lounge Chair to be social, while at the same time creating a space for reflection. The big, soft elephant ears' exterior provides a striking shape, while the choice of colours and textures can create both a playful addition and a bold statement piece.
The Tembo Lounge Chair is available with various upholstery options.

Created by Henri Lavallard Boget for Lyon Beton, the Hauteville concrete armchair draws inspiration from iconic mid-century design with a modern twist. Stripped to the bare essentials, naked concrete – a mix of sand, water and cement – paired with rebar legs evokes a rough, industrial vibe that provides bold contrast to the smooth, modern form. Despite the use of unconventional materials, the chair has an incredibly ergonomic and comfortable seat, while ultra-fine sanding gives it a smooth finish. Versatile enough for practically any space, this minimalist design will leave an impression everywhere it goes.
Lyon Beton specialises in designing and manufacturing concrete furniture and accessories. Fascinated by the technical and plastic possibilities of this material, Lyon Beton worked for 5 years to develop a unique type of concrete, reinforced with metal wire and fibre, specifically for the production of furniture. The end product is not only relatively light, but is also extremely hard wearing and easy to maintain; ideal for use indoors and outdoors, for both private and public spaces.
The Gentry sofa designed by Patricia Urquiola for Moroso is a contemporary interpretation of the classic values suggested by its name: timeless elegance imbued with a sense of superior confidence. The generous proportions of the seat reinforces the emphasis on comfort, whilst the gentle curve of the seat back and arms create a sense of informality, inviting you to sit back and indulge. The curve also, unusually, makes the sofa interesting to look at from behind. Our selection of the chunky quilted fabric together with the scatter of plush cushions brings the style of the sofa right up to date, perfect for the modern gentry and contemporary loungers alike.
The Gentry sofa is suitable for both private and public spaces and is available in multiple sizes, configurations and fabric choices in addition to the version illustrated here. Please contact us for more information.

Tull, designed by Tommaso Caldera, is a light which has a simple and refined design, available in two versions: desk/floor or suspension.

Tull has been furthermore enriched with 2 new metal finishings, copper and nickel, which highlight its vintage inspiration, giving the light an elegant aspect. These 2 materials are combined and presented with either a polished or a matte finish, creating a strong and refined look.

The Mini Clay Table is a daringly original design by Marc Krusin for Desalto. The highly sculptural table comprises a round top balanced on top of an inverted cone, representing pure geometric forms in perfect harmony. The seemingly impossible construction is made possible by the clever use of a rigid polyurethane base, on top of which different tops are fitted. The Mini Clay Table works well as an eye-catching occasional table, especially for sculptural or minimalist design schemes.
The Mini Clay table is part of the Clay table collection, winner of multiple awards including the prestigious Red Dot Award: Product Design 2016, Good Design Award from the Chicago Athenaeum and the Iconic Design Award from the German Design Council.
The Mini Clay table comes with a base in rigid polyurethane with top in MDF. It is available in three different heights (45 or 55 or 65 cm) with three different top sizes (diameter 50 or 60 or 75 cm) available for each version. In addition to MDF, the top is also available in ceramic, with multiple finishes available. Please enquire for more details.
