IMM Cologne 2019 Review

Soft and warm could have been the consolidated theme of our three brands showing at IMM Cologne. Take a look at these spectacular stands:

WITTMANN

All soft curves was the theme for Wittmann this January. Jaime Hayon added generously scaled lounge sofas to his Vuelta collection, inviting us to relax. Sebastian Herkner expanded his Merwyn collection with lounge seating, and added the new Miles collection of related sofas, lounge chairs, and marble top tables.

Vuelta Lounge Island, Vuela lounge chairs (new with swivel option), DD coffee table, and Grain Cut table, all be Jaime Hayon.

DESALTO

Dark walls and warm colors were the perfect way for Desalto to reintroduce the vast flexibility of the the Helsinki collection . New finishes, additional storage options, and rich new surfaces make Helsinki ideal for residential and contract applications alike. The Paper chair is now available for indoor and outdoor use. Most impressive were also the marble patterned ceramic tops, fooling even the (believed) trained eye.

Salone del Mobile Milano 2017 Review

Spectacular weather during the Milan Design Week reflected the presentations of all four brands! Take a virtual walk through the stands and be inspired by the new presentations:

DESALTO

Desalto took full advantage prominent new location,  presenting with its signature understated elegance. Arik Levy dominated the new introductions with no less the four new designs: The Endless barstool, Path lounge chair, Twister low tables, and Double Me wall shelves.

The already considered classics, Clay, Element and "25" tables are now available in three gorgeous new metal finishes: Metal Grey, Metal Rust, & Metal Bronze

Marco Acerbis designed the beautiful, minimal MIR wall mirror that features a "glove compartment".

e15

The Trunk II table, part of e15's Selected collection, with its over four meter long solid European walnut top and polished, yet industrial, brass base, was this year's showstopper at e15. The new Kazimir table, the "low calorie" version of the Trunk II, is the perfect alternative for people who love the aesthetic but prefer a "less rich" aesthetic. Kazimir was shown at the fair with a straight edge and with the raw edge at the showroom in Zona Tortona .

The Elbe collection of a low and high table, plus a bench, first introduced in Cologne, were shown this time in all black.

The Kerman seating system was beautifully display in new textiles. Now also available additional sizes for the round ottoman.

WITTMANN

After a spectacular launch of the Jaime Hayon collection in Cologne, Wittmann continued with another breathtaking display in Milan. The entire stand was designed by Hayon and beautifully communicated the playful, yet sophisticated attitude of the collection. He added the "Hayon" Mirror, available in three sizes, and a "Hayon" dining table, surrounded with the classic Fledermaus chairs by Josef Hoffmann, shown in a new blue-green lacquer. Two designs created one hundred years apart and yet a perfect match.
