Hassan Lakda & Rai Yasir, Table

By Coalesce Design Studio, Karachi, Pakistan.

With only a few years under its belt, the design studio with its designers retain original patterns while keeping up with the times, geometry is very much a staple in designs but the way vintage materials are being re-used brings new life to contemporary design



by Benjamin Graindorge, Ymer&Malta, Paris.

This piece is understated contemporary design at its finest; the neutral tones are easy and comforting to the eyes. You can create your own landscape of cushions by sliding them or changing their positions at ease.



By Marc Baroud & Marc Dibeh, Artfactum Gallery, Beirut.

Marc Baroud and Marc Dibeh skillfully merged the two senses eyesight and touch, creating a desk lamp that operates by hand touch and differs in three different settings



by Valentin Loellman, Galerie Gosserez, Paris.

This combination of materials (coppered metal and burned oak) reinforces the idea; don't underestimate the strength of natural materials, both pieces incorporate leather and copper, light yet sturdy materials


Corner Chairs & Pedestal Table

By Gregor Jenkin & William Kentridge, Southern Guild, Wilderness, South Africa.

The table and chairs by southern guild established in South Africa, southern guild focuses on the use of natural materials and craftsmanship, the aesthetics translate into the the pieces they exhibit, an object as simple as table and chairs, but the details is what makes it a very unique and limited edition piece.
