Designer: Cyril Dundera 
for Lasvit

Product: Globe-Metro

Designer: Patricia Urquiola
for CC-Tapis

Standout: A cabinet topped by an opening for live plants is bedecked in ceramic tiles illustrated with the Russian designer’s ironic reworkings of USSR propaganda posters. 

Designers: Enrico Fratesi and Stine Gam for Hay

Product: Dorso

Standout: Inspired by a torso twisting, the surprise function of GamFratesi’s lounge chair is the 360-degree swivel of the seat, which is set upon legs of oak or powder-coated or chromed steel.

for +55 Design

Product: Concava

for Warp & Weft
