By 2050 two thirds of the earth population will live in cities. The main ambition behind Tatamu is to provide flexible furniture for people whose space is limited, including those who are frequently moving. The aim is to create an intuitive furniture that combines robustness with an ultra-thin shape. It takes only one twisting movement to deploy the stool. While all the hinges made of durable fabric keeping it light weight, the wooden sides provide stability. Once pressure is applied to it, the stool only gets stronger as its pieces lock together, thanks to its unique mechanism and geometry.
Plover is a collection of chairs specifically designed for workshop and seminar events where the chairs can either be used individually or collectively to aid brainstorming and co-creation. The design of Plover encourages the freedom of different sitting postures. The protruding “head” is at one time the extended end of the back support of the regular seated user; at the other time it becomes a small worktop for the user sitting in reverse. There are 3 models under the Plover series.
The Augusta reinterprets the classic dining table. Representing the generations before us, the design seems to grow from an invisible root. The table legs are oriented to this common core, reaching up to hold the book-matched tabletop. Solid European walnut wood was selected for its meaning of wisdom and growth. Wood usually discarded by furniture makers is used for its challenges to work with. The knots, the cracks, the wind shakes and the unique swirls tell the story of the tree's life. The uniqueness of the wood allows this story to live on in a piece of family heirloom furniture.

During the 60s, visionary designers developed the first plastic furniture. The designers’ talent coupled with the versatility of the substance led to its indispensability. Both designers and consumers became addicted to it. Today, we know its environmental dangers. Still, restaurant terraces remain filled with plastic chairs. This is because the market offers little alternative. The design world remains sparsely populated with manufacturers of steel furniture, even sometimes republishing designs from the late 19th century… Here comes the birth of Tomeo: a modern, light & stackable steel chair.
Time Book are made by hand-polished crystal glass blocks. Special ink was screen printed on the surface and cured at high temperature. The high density of crystal glass gives them perfect stability when in use. Time Book is minimalistic in terms of function, form and material, it’s like a book-shaped sculpture. The function is clearly presented by its form. The text on the book uses Quinsay Parto typeface designed by Time book’s designer. The “MMXIX” on the book spine is the Roman numeral writing of “2019”.
