PRIMARY DESIGNED BY QUINZE AND MILAN ORIGINAL ; NOT DERIVED OR SUBORDINATE ; FUNDAMENTAL ; BASIC.
COLOR 08 RASPBERRY
Stripped to the essence, PRIMARY is the first in a line that deserves to be called a Quinze & Milan classic. PRIMARY collection kicked off the use of QM FOAM™, a proprietary material developed and produced by Quinze & Milan. It’s a stool, a chair, a table and an eye-catcher in its own right. PRIMARY POUF 01, which was honoured with a triple Henri van de Velde Award (Belgium, 2001), is an all-time favourite among grown-ups and children alike. Soft materials and an uncomplicated design idiom are a tried and tested formula for a happy marriage. The sassy character of this comfortable, water-repellent stool with legs has made it a hit worldwide : look for PRIMARY in prestigious public spaces from San Francisco to Tokyo, from Stockholm to Cape Town.

MEET THE CREATIVES. A PLATFORM FOR CREATIVE COLLABORATIONS Quinze & Milan is not a typical furniture label but a platform for collaborations, a think tank and factory of ideas, designs, concepts and experiments. It’s this approach that made Quinze & Milan turn into a successful label that guarantees rock ‘n roll, creativity, comfort, quality, excitement and ingenuity. MAKE YOUR OWN FURNITURE Wood, fabrics, leather, QM FOAM: It’s all yours, down to the smallest detail. On request, we can make exactly what you want. Quinze & Milan offers its extended production platform to industrial designers and project architects. Quinze & Milan is a label that features the work of designers and supports other architects and designers in the realization of their ideas. We like to push the boundaries – our own and those of the people around us. In our cosmos, boundaries exist only to be shifted… In addition to producing furniture at our in-house factory, we work in close collaboration with specialized manufacturers that make use of Quinze & Milan’s proprietary equipment when producing products and designs. In both cases, the result is a quality product that has the added advantage of flexibility – particularly important when serving clients with special requirements. We can make exactly what you want in short order. Variations in size, colour or finish? It’s all yours, down to the smallest detail.
QUINZE & MILAN
Pumped by QM’s authentic values, an in-house team of creatives translates the QM lifestyle and spirit into working designs for a broad range of projects, becoming infectious creations that pull you into their self-shaped sphere and hold you captive. Constantly seeking for innovative collaborations and designs, the team works as a laboratory testing out new materials and ideas.
Scott Wilson is founder of MINIMAL, a multidisciplinary design studio. He’s an accomplished designer experienced in developing iconic, industry-leading products. His alternating experience within three consulting firms and four global corporations has provided him with the skills necessary to navigate through companies and industries consistently delivering compelling consumer concepts to market.
JÜRGEN MAYER H.
Founded in 1996 in Berlin, Germany, J. MAYER H Architects’ studio focuses on works at the intersection of architecture, communication and new technology. From urban planning schemes and buildings to installation work and objects with new materials, the relationship between the human body, technology and nature form the background for a new production of space. Jürgen Mayer H. is the founder and principal of this crossdisciplinairy studio. He studied at Stuttgart University, The Cooper Union and Princeton Universtiy. His work has been published and exhibited world-wide and is part of numerous collections including MoMA New York and SF MoMA.
Wiel Arets investigates and produces space in response to life, the potential of function, the character of place and the nature of material. As well as bespoke architecture and urbanism on every scale, the studio develops products for mass production in collaboration with leading manufacturers.
David Weeks is one of America’s leading designers. His awardwinning lighting is installed in high-profile locations throughout the world, in addition to his innovative furniture, household products and toys. Weeks founded New York-based David Weeks Studio in 1996. Since then, he has created products for commercial and residential uses, from desk lamps and home accessories to floor lamps, chandeliers, mobiles, lounge seating and custom retail, commercial and residential lighting installations.
Concrete hosts different disciplines such as product and interior designers, architects, visual marketeers and now an urban planning/ architectural firm too. Concrete’s deliberate choice of breaking away from traditional hierarchies and the dominant forces which dictate the design process today, gives our agency unprecedented freedom. Concrete’s designers want to be inspired not just by modern art but by comics too, by ideas from the world of architecture and multimedia, by haute cuisine and the snack bar. They appear contradictory, but, in this collision, the perfect expression of our post-modern age can be found.
Kazuko Okamoto’s — born in Chiba, Japan but currently living in Milan — interests lie in furniture and productdesign. In the past she has made tables, shelves and chairs but also cups and plates. Foam and oak wood are her favorite materials to create furniture as the fi rst has the most flexible form you can play with and the second is all about nature. After working in a company she stepped in the world of freelancers, exactly what Quinze & Milan was looking for.

WE LOVE COLORS. QM FOAM™ COLOR SWATCHES WE LOVE COLOR Based on our technology we will match the indicated NCS, PANTONE and RAL colors as precise as possible. Foam and Coating samples are available upon request. CUSTOM COLORS We may match practically any clearly defined color, specified according to an international color system like NCS, RAL and SIKKENS. ADDING GRAPHICS For your specific commercial project needs, Quinze & Milan developed a paint-based technique which allows us to add your logo, text or graphics directly on the QM FOAM™ surface, without use of stickers. This way, the graphics stay as flexible and elastic as the foam itself.
