1. Montana Moser Table by Kasper Mose.

Created with the contract market in mind for heavy-use situations the Moser Table system supplies the perfect solution in multi-purpose contexts where many features, functionalities, sizes and heights are required. This versatile table series comes in many sizes, both round and rectangular in a range of heights, colours, and finishes. With a modern, light silhouette emphasised by the colour and material choices the table system provides the optimal solution for settings accommodating any number of people. The table blends in well with its softly rounded, yet clear design – the easy operable chair suspension and folding features make it a joy in the day-to-day operations of a busy setting.

Mathew shares: "Moser is a great new system from Montana. It’s a folding table with castors, but you wouldn’t know it!Moser is available in a great range of punchy colours, sizes, heights and has a stacking trolley."

2. VIPP452 Swivel Chair.

Vipp Swivel chair is suitable for the home office or meeting room. The chair features a polished or powder-coated aluminium frame with an upholstered leather seat and backrest. A four-legged base on castor wheels allows for a 360° seat rotation. Also available with gliders. 

3. Karakter GB Lounge by Gijs Bakker.

Comfortable and casual, this iconic chair from 1972 remains just as relevant today as it enters production for the first time. Available as a one-seater chair, or with the addition of a pouf, the GB Lounge can be arranged in a variety of ways by connectors that transform it from a solo chair into a multiple seating system.

4. Fritz Hansen PK60 Table & PK0 A Chair by Poul Kjaerholm.

With just 600 pieces in circulation until now, the PK0 A™ chair is the result of Kjærholm’s continual and careful consideration for challenging the boundaries of manufacturing techniques. In addition, Kjærholm’s PK60™ is released for the first time since it was designed in 1952. Revolutionising industrial techniques and contrasting the modular designs of the era, the PK60 takes its design cues from modern art – most notably the works of Japanese sculptor Isamu Noguchi. 

5. CH24 Soft in nine new colours by Ilse Crawford.

To celebrate Hans J. Wegner’s more than 70 years of collaboration with Carl Hansen & Søn, the company is now expanding its collaboration with London-based designer Ilse Crawford to include the Wishbone Chair in nine new colours. All colours are eco-friendly, water-based and resilient, so they are perfect for both private and public use. The deep and complex colours are inspired by the Danish artist Per Kirkeby, nod to the raw beauty of the Nordic landscape.

6. GUBI Doric Table by GamFratesi. 

The Doric Coffee Table takes its name from the Doric order of ancient Greek – and later Roman – architecture. The defining feature of the Doric Tables is the inward curve of the legs, the result of material subtraction from a simple shape. Available in two sizes and two types of natural stone, travertine or limestone.

7. GUBI Beetle 3D Veneer Chair by GamFratesi

The Beetle Chair was first launched in 2013, and now a decade later, the studio has reimagined their landmark design concept in 3D timber veneer – giving the Beetle a bold new natural expression. Available in oak and American walnut. 

8. HAY Passerelle Table by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec. 

Inspired by the clean aesthetic of classic Shaker furniture, Passerelle is an updated interpretation sharing the same simplicity and quality in a more contemporary context to meet the demands of modern lifestyle.

With a well-balanced construction, the tabletop features solid wood edges and a veneer, laminate or linoleum top surface, with the core in Lisocore® - an advanced high-quality material that offers great strength while being extremely lightweight and easy to move. Lisocore® also uses almost 50% less material than traditional wood veneer, thus reducing its environmental impact.

The table frame and legs are equally sturdy and functional, made of solid wood, accompanied by an aluminum and steel crossbar that strengthens and stabilises the table. Its variety of material and colour options allow Passerelle tables adapt to any environment, making them suitable for use as a desk, high table or dining table in both private and public spaces.

9. HAY Result Armchair

The Result Chair (1959) is a design that has endured, proving the worth of the ideas that were initially put into their creation. It features a thin steel-sheet base with an oak seat and backrest, retaining maximum flexibility, lightness and strength. Now in 2022, it is introduced with armrests for the first time. 

10. Cappellini Lud’ina Chair by Patricia Urquiola.

This is a new table or desk version of the successful Lud’o Lounge armchair, winner of the 70th edition of the Good Design Award. Faithful to its original concept, even this new design displays a recycled plastic structure and is available with various solutions for the base and removable upholstery in a selection of fabrics and leathers from the collection, each one conveying a different meaning, from the sporty to the most formal one, fitting like a tailored suit.

11. Cappellini Big Sofa by Bjarke Ingels.

A debut in style in the world of upholstered furniture for BIG-Bjarke Ingels Group. The Danish designer’s creative firm has come up with a sofa featuring majestic dimensions and concise lines with a clear reference to architecture, the main field of his international studio with offices in Copenhagen, New York and London. Big Sofa, resting on a plywood base covered in polished chromed or black lacquered steel, is suitable for large residences or the lounges of accommodation facilities and is defined by a powerful recognisable design.

12. Zanotta Karelia Chair by  Liisi Beckmann 

The non-conformist pop icon armchair of the Sixties and symbol of freedom is back in production. One of the first frameless armchairs, made entirely of polyurethane foam. The soft, wave-like surface draws inspiration from the designer's homeland, the Republic of Karelia in Finland, indented by bays and gulfs. The new fabric upholstery in bright, iridescent colours replaces the vinyl of the 1970s.
