Embark On A Journey Of Artistry With These Creatives

1. Niamh Barry of Niamh Barry

Product: Top Top
Standout: A polished-brass console with deep-blue-painted top boasts a sculptural silhouette that seemingly defies gravity, an effect the artist achieved through advanced planning and experimentation. Through Maison Gerard.

2. Jonathan Levien and Nipa Doshi for Arper

Product: Roopa
Standout: The Doshi Levien designers are known for enhancing simple shapes with small yet significant details—in this case evoking playful sophistication by highlighting the contrast between a matte base of FSC-certified MDF and a high-gloss glass top. 

3. Meike Papenfuss and Johannes Budde for Spinder Design

Product: Sensu
Standout: Inspired by Japanese folding fans, a zigzagging sheet of steel from the Budde founders forms a clever coat rack, with three, five, or seven hooks that cast intriguing shadows on the wall when not in the service of hats and jackets.  

4. Chris Adamick for Allsteel

Product: Admix
Standout: A flexible table system designed with collaboration in mind is available in an array of top shapes and ancillary options, not to mention interchangeable casters and glides that maximize the piece’s multitasking nature. 

5. A. Jacob Marks of Skram 

Product: Altai
Standout: With steel or bronze uprights and solid-timber shelves and drawers, the customizable system is intended for use as a freestanding, open storage unit or room divider but works just as well against the wall. 

6. Christian Cowper and Claudia Surrage for Bernhardt Design 

Product: Albany
Standout: Brushed-graphite or dark-brass occasional tables by London studio Claud Christian, available with a wood or glass top, are bold enough to wow yet suitably classic to weather time and trends, befitting a wide range of settings.

7. Giuseppe Bavuso for Rimadesio 

Product: Altair
Standout: Designed for residential or commercial use, the system—pairing clear-glass fronts with lacquered sides—features double-side-opening drawers lined in synthetic leather and pull-out trays illuminated by hidden, diffused LED lighting.  

8. Maria Adele Savioli of Mas Design 

Product: Onice 45
Standout: The Italian architect’s table is a study in contrasts, with a graceful polished-onyx top that provides a visual foil to the striking color and angles of the matte-powder-coated steel base.
