NeoCon: Marketscape

Designer: Ichiro Iwasaki for Arper

Product: Pix

Standout: Available in all colors of the rainbow, the family of ottomans by the Iwasaki Design Studio founder is intended to trigger playful, improvisational compositions.

Designer: Brian Graham for Martin Brattrud

Product: Medinah

Standout: Contoured sofas by the Graham Design creative director gang back-to-back to save space, giving surfaces and ancillary seating ample room to roam.

Designer: Jasper Morrison for Emeco

Product: 1-Inch Reclaimed

Standout: There’s a sustainability quotient backing the chair’s graceful stance: Its mix of wood fiber and polypropylene is made from 90 percent postindustrial waste.

Designer: Patricia Urquiola for Haworth

Product: Maari

Standout: The Interior Design Hall of Fame member’s go-anywhere, do-anything walnut-leg chair boasts an injection-molded shell offering both flexibility and support.

Designers: Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec for Vitra

Product: Cyl

Standout: Effortlessly straight­forward frames in solid oak lend a natural, handcrafted aesthetic to the French brothers’ expansive, whole-office collection.

Designer: Naoto Fukasawa for Plank

Product: Land

Standout: The rotationally molded plastic seats in neutral or bold shades give a graphic kick to outdoor spaces, but their sculptural shape works equally well indoors.

Designer: Marc Newson for Knoll

Product: Newson Aluminum

Standout: Turnabout is fair play as the designer riffs on Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s 1930 Brno sled chair by reversing the cantilever’s direction and rendering it in die-cast aluminum and  polyester-elastomer mesh.

Designer: Keith Melbourne for Darran

Product: Bota Island

Standout: The former aerospace engineer’s spirited group of ottomans in three sizes delivers 360 degrees of pert perching space for working solo or collaboratively.
