1. Developed in collaboration with Amsterdam-based Scholten & Baijings Studio, this collection from Maharam includes eight textile selections: Blocks, Bright Angle, Bright Cube, Bright Grid, Grid, Mesh, Pare, and Tracery. They are all refined by strong geometric patterning and repetition of lines, and are complemented by bold, contemporary colors balanced with minimal forms.
2. The Rex Kralj Shell Chair merges a modern, industrial-classic feel with minimalism and a relaxed vibe. The details are what truly make this piece unique, which was first introduced in 1956. It offers an ideal combination of design elements, with a shell that is notably comfortable and elegant.
3. The dECOleather recycled leather veneer by Formica Group offers a feel of luxury. Its exceptionally rich leather graining offers aesthetic appeal while being eco-friendly. It is appropriate for hospitality projects, offices, or any other chic application, and can be applied to tables, furniture, cabinets, or even doors. dECOleather is available in 18 colors.
4. Thinking of a ceiling as a creative canvas, Hunter Douglas Architectural’s HeartFelt is a modular felt ceiling system that offers an innovative acoustical solution. The linear system features open joints and is available in five shades of gray. The ultra-light panels are easy to install, flexible, and facilitate easy integration of technology, lighting, HVAC systems, and signage.
5. A white-body, single-fired, ceramic wall tile, WigWag from StoneSource is offered in four colors and eight randomly assorted patterns. The collection is a simple
yet surprisingly fresh update on traditional subway tile.
6. Robin Reigi’s Shinnoki Wood Panels bring elegance and a refined look to any interior. Shinnoki comes in ready-to-cut and ready-to-install veneer-cladded MDF panels, which means less time for the millworker and less cost to the client.
7. The overall design of Arte’s Le Corbusier Dots collection speaks for itself with bold yet simple beauty. This line is a reinterpretation of Le Corbusier’s work, based on the dotted pattern he designed for a wallcovering in 1931. The dots are, however, no longer applied in oil paint but with a relief ink with a high-gloss finish.
8. Zones from Teknion is a collection designed to contribute to a workspace that not only attracts, motivates, and enables employees to do their work, but also speaks to human, economic, and environmental health. The line is a complete solution with seating options, tables, privacy screens, and more.
