recliner 74
designed by: Milo Baughman
for Thayer Coggin  
“Furniture that is too obviously designed is very interesting,” said designer Milo Baughman, “but
too often belongs only in museums.” A firm believer that good design can have a positive
influence in our lives, Baughman knew how to design sophisticated, sexy chairs – even when
it came to a Recliner (1966). Recognized as one of the originators of the California modern
movement, Baughman began his career as a custom furniture designer, and in 1953 he
joined forces with Thayer Coggin, the founder of the North Carolina company that is still
the exclusive manufacturer of Baughman’s work. For five decades, Baughman designed
clean, sophisticated and easy-to-live-with furniture, and we worked closely with Thayer
Coggin to bring this Recliner back into production. Baughman’s work was included in
“High Styles: Twentieth Century American Design,” at the Whitney Museum of American
Art in 1985. In 1987, he was inducted into the Furniture Design Hall of Fame. Made in U.S.A.

the dream chair
designed by:  Tadao Ando.
for Carl Hansen & Søn
Designed especially for Carl Hansen & Søn by Tadao Ando as a tribute to Hans J. Wegner.
The Dream Chair seeks to express the same harmonious, minimalist expression typical of
Wegner´s design. Tadao Ando and the cabinetmakers at Carl Hansen & Son pushed the
size and curvature of the plywood sheet in order to achieve the necessary characteristics
of a chair, attaining a result beyond what was thought to be possible when working with
three­-dimensional plywood.  Manufactured by Carl Hansen & Son. Designed in 2013.

the dream chair
designed by:  Tadao Ando.
for Carl Hansen & Søn
The chairs are constructed of black walnut with a natural finish. The design of the chair is focused
on proportions from the Mid 1900's with extreme focus put on the angle of the seat in relation to
the arms of the chair to create the most desirable and natural sitting position. The inspiration
of the chair derived from the study of Alvar Aalto chairs, although the end result has no visual
similarities. The chair is design to be used with or without cushions.

carla, carlo
designed by:  Florian Schmid, 2013
Geometrical composition from the circle and line forms CARLA – mirror with shelf. A flat wooden
board, resting on two legs, cuts the mirror along the vertical axis and thus divides the object into
twohalves. The full height of the mirror is retained on the outside, thus offering an unobstructed
view. On the inside, the narrow shelf space provides room for accessories, jewellery and the like.
A hardly visible cable guide is hidden behind the shelf, so it is also a good place for smart phones,
mobiles andother electronic devices. Due to its reflection in the mirror, the shelf seems visually
larger than it actuallyis, and even seems to stand on 3 legs and to lean on an artificial window.
The room becomes larger and interplay arises between looking in and looking out. In addition
to the round mirror CARLA there is the taller right-angled mirror variant CARLO. CARLO is intended
to be used while standing, CARLA is more tobe used while seated.Thanks to its narrow proportions,
CARLA and CARLO can stand in the bedroom or dressing room, but also in the corridor, hall,
bathroom or hotel room. Florian Schmid is the winner of "A&W Designtalente 2013".

split table
designed by:  Staffan Holm
STAFFAN HOLM ON THE DESIGN "I wanted the table to have an organic expression and to combine
a structural solidity with a seemingly more delicate balancing act. The detail of the legs being split
and bent has the expression and quality of a skilled cabinet-maker and is likely to become a
hallmark of the Split Table.” MATERIAL solid ash, solid oak. COLOR OPTIONS black stained, natural
oak, natural ash. available at:
