The Revolving Cabinet, designed by Japanese design icon Shiro Kuramata, is an immediate standout with its fiery red color and unique shape. It is made of a glossy acrylic plastic material and equipped with 20 drawers that rotate around a vertical metal stand.
Beyond its functional storage capabilities, the cabinet also doubles as a mobile sculpture that's light, innovative, and interactive.
Jasper Morrison's Thinking Man's Chair is a piece that invites contemplation. It's a chair that allows for seating for long periods of time, thanks to ergonomics at its finest: Areas that support the body are made of flat bars, while the main structure is tubular. Meanwhile, drink holders are another unique feature found at the end of the armrests.
The Thinking Man's Chair is made of varnished metal and is available in an assortment of cool, contemporary colors, such as green, dark grey, terracotta, and gypsum white.
The desire to push the manipulation of wood to its limits resulted in the Wooden Chair by Marc Newson, one of the most influential designers of his generation.
The structure, which boasts an almost organic shape, is made of oiled natural solid beech wood. The wood planks, which are bent with hot steam to form a double curve, are supported by two horizontal reinforcements — two at the ends and three in the seat area — that are all fastened with visible screws.
