Trend Alert MOROCCANINSPIRED INTERIORS Moroccan home décor style continues to dominate as one of the most popular interior design trends this season. In the past designers have latched onto the bohemian styles and spicy colour schemes used within Moroccan interiors however this season Moroccan style is about detail, texture, and intricate patterns. If you like this kind of aesthetics, it’s worth mentioning that you can easily transform your own interior in a Moroccan-inspired way, even if you’re on a budget.

1. LIVING ROOM The main characteristic of a Moroccan home focuses on texture and geometry and involves the use of bright colours, such as red, blue, orange, and green mixed with gold. Mosaics and carved furniture pieces also play a major role in creating the look. However, into days mahogany and beige colour scheme this is not everyoneâ€™s cup of tea so to create the Modern Moroccan look try using iridescent effect wallpaper or tile-inspired wallpaper in subtle pastels colours. Lattice coffee tables and screens in sun-bleached white with silver or gold candle holders and vases will complete the look.

2. BEDROOM You may think that incorporating Moroccan style into the bedroom would feel overpowering â€“ well think again! Calming colours such as sea blues, sky greys and subtle indigos create a sense of the exotic but with a cool crisp yet modern twist. Neutral woods for floors and wardrobes will only enhance the look, add drama by framing your bed in drapes. Complete the look by adding an authentic patterned rug and jewelled textured cushions.

3. Dining A large part of Moroccan culture is the delicious food and vibrant spicy colours. The kitchen area should pay homage to this. Colour is key so to add a touch of Moroccan style into the dining room, look for jewelled tones that can be coordinated across table linen, glassware and any table decorations. Adding candlelight to the setting helps create a great ambience try to inject reflective metallic tones such as silver or golden hues.

Turquoise blues and whites are a fantstacic vibrant colour combination however for the less adventurous ornate metallic finishes and plants will add a splash of colour paired with natural elements, such as wood and stone will help to bring a touch of the exotic to your bathroom. For the perfect finishing touch add super soft towels and robes, ideal for the real hamam at home feel.

5. OUTDOORS Socialising is an essential part of Moroccan culture but why limit your dĂŠcor style to just the indoors. To create a Moroccan inspired terrace or deck lighting should be the focal accessory. Lanterns are synonymous with Moroccan inspired interiors and outdoors they are a stand out feature, wooden or metallic carved lanterns freestanding or hanging in differing sizes are simply stunning. Rattan furniture, Poufs, rugs and cushions carelessly thrown without a care in the world also add to create the look. Gold table accessories www.zarahome.com

Oki Sato from Japanese design studio Nendo loves to surprise and break the boundaries. So his new collaboration with luxury bathroom brand Hangrophe completely baffles us but is actually rather genius. Inspired by a floor lamp, his dream was to combine totally different living areas together the result the AxorLamp Shower which is “Neither a lamp nor a shower, it is a hybrid,” says the 35-year-old Sato The Axor Lamp Shower, combines water and light together in perfect harmony and whist at first glance this looks like just a lamp, on looking closer you find that it offers a oneof-a-kind showering experience thanks to the wide-rimmed shower crest that circles the light fitting. This integration makes for an ambient lighting and feel-good atmosphere throughout the entire bathroom. The LampShower can be either ceiling-mounted or wall-mounted version. In addition to the standard chrome finish, the products can be individualized with the application of a range of special finishesto suit personal taste.

THE GRAND RE-INTRODUCTION OF ARNE JACOBSEN’S GRAND PRIX™ TABLE 2017 marks the 60th anniversary of Arne Jacobsen’s famous Grand Prix™ Chair – a design that earned its name after winning the prestigious Grand Prix prize at the Triennale in Milan in 1957. Arne Jacobsen designed the Grand Prix Table alongside the chair, but the table only got to meet its audience for a short while due to challenges in production. Now, as a celebration of the Grand Prix Chair, Republic of Fritz Hansen™ is relaunching the Grand Prix Table. Similar to the Grand Prix Chair, Arne Jacobsen originally designed the Grand Prix™ Table with solid beech legs and a lacquered veneer tabletop. However, the construction lacked stability and the table went out of production. The Fritz Hansen design team recently undertook the task of changing the construction of the table without changing the design. The resulting 2017 version has slightly wider, solid wood legs and features a steel rail under the lacquered veneer tabletop for optimised stability. The simple, modern table now comes in oak in three sizes, and features smooth, rounded edges that contribute to its soft expression. The table will be available at Republic of Fritz Hansen Concept Stores as well as selected stores worldwide from September 2017.

British paint and wallpaper makers Farrow & Ball, have unveiled their new wallpaper collection Atacama, Hegemone and Helleborus. Inspired by the latest trends in texture each pattern has a bold botanical design but with a modern twist Taking its name from the Greek goddess of fruit and flowers, Hegemone is wonderfully optimistic and looks almost as if it has been cut from paper. Less rigid and defined than a classic floral pattern, each colourful petal blooms freely in all directions. Inspired by a brightly coloured fabric found nestled in an old mill, Atacama has a playful tropical print. Named after the flowering South American desert, the intricate botanical design combines rich textures and delicate patterns. For its new collection, Farrow & Ball has experimented with a range of scales exploring the expressive trend of maximalism, creating its largest motif design yet, Helleborus. First drawn with a pipette for a sense of unrestrained fluidity, each petal feels as though it is unfurling on the wall. Latin for the hellebore flower, the organic pattern creates a sense of growth and rejuvenation, transforming the home into a warm and wonderful retreat.
Throughout the collection, there is a tactile almost three dimensional finish to the wallpapers which is achieved by printing paint on paper, with each design available in seven colourways from soft neutrals and muted pastels, to striking colour combinations with metallic accents. The beautiful florals jump out of each print and help create the ultimate escape within our homes, transforming rooms into a wonderful retreat where we can feel safe, calm and inspired.

VISUAL EFFECTS Overlays and visual effects merge effortlessly together as a geometric puzzle in the latest GAN kilim collection, created by the Swedish design team Front. Anna Lindgren and Sofia Lagerkvist have expertly combined the patterns and geometries of traditional flooring with new shapes and colours, creating rugs that feature a threedimensional matrix, accentuated by their irregular shapes embracing GAN’s philosophy of integrating traditional and new elements with Scandinavian simplicity.
Using simple geometric figures with four to eight sides as building blocks, the renowned Swedish designers have created three models of reversible kilims: Tetragon, Rhomb and Hexagon. The three designs are made completely from pure new wool in manual looms, operated by the skilled craftsmen and women of India. Their shapes move away from the classic rectangle, and the designs and colors manage to visually enlarge the space in which they are located, and open it to new dimensions, with daring and freshness. 1. Tetragon is the most colourful rug in this collection, with a balanced mix of grey, blue, yellow, pink and dark green. 2. Hexagon declines in reds and oranges, captured in cubic motifs divided into vertical lines that play to create overlays and stratifications. Each of the three models is available in two different sizes.

THE GREEN HOUSE EFFECT There is nothing better for brightening up in an indoor environment that a well-grown houseplant. Plants are a stylish home accessory that never goes out of fashion and come in a variety of shapes and sizes suitable for the smallest of windowsills to large spacious hallways and conservatories.
24 DĂ‰COR Magazine
Plants offer lush foliage, beautiful blooms and interesting forms adding a touch of character and depth to the spaces they occupy. Plants are actually a perfect accessory to the home as there is a plant that will sit perfectly in any room. Some will thrive in bathrooms, some in shaded corners while others will require a sunny spot so your ability to place the correct plant in the right place is key to creating a calming oasis or bohemian jungle. To create a refreshing and relaxing mood and purify the air follow these simple tips…
SIZE MATTERS First rule of thumbs is size matters! The larger the room you are working with, the bigger and more numerous the plants can be and visa versa. Let’s face it a single small green plant would look lost in a large empty space whereby a small room would be completely swamped by a large imposing plant or overload of planters.
26 DÉCOR Magazine
MAKE A STATEMENT
DON’T CUT CORNERS
Tree-like plants have great importance in the sense of decorating and are a great focal point of attention. Large-leafed species like dracaena, philodendron or the banyan tree (Ficus benghalensis) can really fill up a sparsely furnished room or entrance hall and leave their mark
A tall snake plant is the perfect plant for those tricky empty corner spaces that juts sit looking dark and gloomy! Plus, it requires little attention, so it’s perfect for anyone with a less-thangreen thumb.
Positioned in a nook, in-between seats or framing a window this looks works beautifully in neutral coloured themes and can be the perfect addition to a cosy living room. In a small room, large plants can be oppressive and take up way too much space. To get the best effect, choose mid-size or small plants with large delicate leaves. Put the plants where they are going to be visible, but don’t put too many plants in a small space or it will get too crowded and your individual plants won’t make their full impact on the room.
CONSIDER COLOURS AND SHADOWS Plants always look best against simple backgrounds. If they have large foliage, they should be placed in front of plain walls or wallpaper with a small pattern. Large patterned wallpaper calls out for filigreed leaves or ferns. Make sure your decorative scheme takes into account the way light enters your room. If you put the plants in front of a bright, sunny wall, their shadows can create interesting and unusual patterns on the wall, ceiling or even plain carpeting. Make sure the colours of leaves and flowers you choose don’t clash with your decor. You don’t want to take expensive furnishings and wall coverings and reduce them by the wrong coloured flowers in your pots. HANGING GARDENS Not a style that suits everyone, this look creates an element of poetry and a somewhat bohemian feel. Plants are really like organic modern mobiles that fill dead air space with fantastic shapes and colours. MATCH THE PLANT TO YOUR STYLE Different furnishing styles are suited to different plants, so it’s important that you use the right plants. Yucca, Schefflera and rubber trees (Ficus) fit in well with wooden furniture. Flowering plants look great with a country style decor. If you like the straight or gently curved forms of steel, glass, marble and varnished wood, things like the snake plant (Sansevieria trifasciata), Swiss cheese plant (Monstera deliciosa), Dracaena and Guzmania work wonderfully. Plants with simple gently curving lines work in art nouveau and art deco settings. Furniture made of bamboo and rattan and oriental style shapes are perfect for exotic hanging plants like string of pearls (Senecio royleyanus) or wax plant (Hoya). Traditional English or French styles go well with bushy, vigorously flowering plants like cyclamen, camellias, gloxinias (Sinningia hybrids) or begonias. DÉCOR Magazine

French resTauranT MIxes TradITIon & ModernITy Mullan Lighting has helped transform a quaint, French restaurant on the outskirts of Strasbourg where the traditions of the region and the restaurant décor are respected and complemented by good lighting design. Situated on the Route de Brumath in Vendenheim just north of Strasbourg, Maison Rouge forms an integral part of the architectural heritage of the French town and its surroundings. Local architects Les Agenceurs endeavoured to respect and preserve this culture when tasked with designing the refurbishment of this charming restaurant.

Maison Rouge strives to always promote fresh, seasonal produce sourced from local producers. The menu respects the traditional recipes of the Alsace region of France while also incorporating some original cuisine creations. This idea of mixing tradition with originality and modernity is evident in the revitalised interior of the restaurant where traditional materials like wood and brick are complemented by shiny, modern brass fittings found in the interior’s curtain poles, coat hooks and, of course, light fixtures from Mullan Lighting.
DÃ‰COR Magazine 31
Strasbourg-based architects Les Agenceurs transformed the restaurant with navy blue walls, lots of comfortable brown and tan leather seating, red brick, dark wood and brass. Mullan Lighting worked closely with Les Agenceurs to provide suitable lighting for this French restaurant. Les Agenceurs had a strong vision for the look and feel that they wanted to achieve. Mike Treanor, Design Director at Mullan Lighting, stated; “It’s great to work with experienced interior architects like Les Agenceurs that can successfully integrate our lighting designs in intelligent ways. They didn’t shy away from the architectural sensitivities that the project presented. Instead, they juxtaposed our modern brass lights with traditional materials and colours in the restaurant interior in a way that works really well.” Three light fixtures from Mullan Lighting were used in the Maison Rouge project. The Cairo modern wall light and Cairo pendant light are used extensively throughout the restaurant. Both light fixtures are finished in brass and black to suit the décor described. Also used in the project are carefully placed Kigoma ceiling lights fixed in a row directly above the restaurant’s bar. The exposed bulb and simple brass shade of the Kigoma fixture from Mullan Lighting helps direct light downwards, making it both highly functional and decorative.

ADRIA Designed for ITALAMP by NAVA+NAVA Design Studio
38 DÃ‰COR Magazine
The contemporary alternative to a chandelier, reinvented with a fresh, dynamic approach, which is the distinguishing feature of naVa+naVa designers. This is the idea behind adria, a thread that connects the past to the future, as the name itself implies. adria is the origin of the name of the adriatic Sea, a body of water that has played a key role in human evolution and fosters the exchange of cultures and goods. While the most characteristic elements of chandeliers – the central stem and bobeches – have been maintained, they have been redesigned in a play of balances to create a bold effect. adria is a “destructured” suspension light that stunningly combines transparent glass shades with slender, minimalistic and unobtrusive supports.
It features luminous drops suspended in midair, an entwining of delicate yet bold “strings”, disconnected elements that take shape in a skilfully ordered combination of innovation and classic atmospheres. The light emitted from the glass does not lose that exquisite, romantic allure that distinguishes this material, worked with undisputed mastery by Italamp. adria seeks to continue the company’s great tradition in the world of chandeliers, while also opening new avenues where tradition meets innovation, thanks to both design and technology. a versatile product, it can meet the diverse needs of architects, designers and final users, offering design ideas and special details that are well-suited to settings ranging from residential to contract.
Paolo emanuele nava and Luca Maria arosio of naVa+naVa Design Studio explained,
“In this way, the concept of the classic chandelier was turned over and simplified – the central stem is counterbalanced with bobeches supported not from below with arms, but suspended from above with supports inspired by modern architecture in a play of harmonious contrasts of modern and classic elements”.

ALYSOID, AIR & LIGHT A feminine accessory turns into an illuminated sculpture.
40 DÃ‰COR Magazine
Founded 1996 near Venice, a crossroads between central European and Mediterranean influences, from the very start Axolight encapsulated the tradition of artisanship and the energy of trends from all over Europe. Its vocation and international spirit cross borders in gathering ideas and offering up its concepts. Thanks to this eclecticism it manages to face all kinds of projects, created totally in synergy with worldwide known designers.
For Alysoid, presented for the first time at Euroluce 2017, the Japanese designer Ryosuke Fukusada chose as a distinctive element precious chains made of small spherical elements such as those frequently used in the production of fashion and jewelry accessories, that create a unique atmosphere when light touches them, highlighting the diffuser’s incredibly attractive natural curves. Available in black nickel or in natural brass, the chains define the lamp diffuser forming a natural arch thanks to their own weight, enlightened by high performance LED lights in the centre. The final result is real and tangible and, at the same time, it is made just of air and light. The volume of the lamp fills the room without blocking the view, allowing you to see through the object: the lamp therefore becomes an important tool for any designer who wishes to define a room.
They couldn’t have been realised without a 20 years’ knowledge of various materials: glass, crystal, fabric, ceramics, metal, aluminium and ABS. And it is also thanks to this eclecticism that Axolight’s products are perfect in several areas, such as residential, hospitality, and business. The new brand identity introduced in 2017 is the tangible proof of the company’s evolution that will allow Axolight to face the challenges of the future’s consumers, ever more demanding and prepared.

Eddy: thE champion’s rEst
The Giro d’Italia and the Tour de France are two of the most eagerly awaited events in the world of cycling and of sports in general. Hard physical efforts have created celebrities whose fame goes beyond cycling enthusiasts, turning two sporting events into tradition and culture. Adrenalin and excitement accompany each leg of the race but, once the last kilometre is reached, it’s necessary to think about the essential comfort and relaxation. Bonaldo has interpreted these needs in its new Eddy armchair, designed by Alain Gilles and presented at the Salone del Mobile 2017 of Milan. For this design, the Belgian designer drew his inspiration directly from the world of cycling: for the name he was inspired by the famous cyclist, his fellow countryman and undisputed champion in this field while the shape recalls the styling and characteristics of the fixie bike, a vintage fixedgear bicycle that is lightweight and minimal. Alain Gilles studied accurately every accessory and detail of these bicycles - from the frame to the release mechanism and side bags - to interpret them in the realization of each element of the armchair.
Available from: www.bonaldo.it
48 DÉCOR Magazine
“If you think about it, many of the first prototypes in the history of design were made in cycling workshops”, explains Alain Gilles, “because that’s where the masters of tubular metal manufacturing were
and they had the expertise required to make those objects with such essential style”. The Eddy armchair is built using the same logic as bicycle construction, around a tubular metal frame, while the seat is designed to be comfortable and ergonomic. The way in which the various parts of the frame are connected - using “quick release” fittings - is an obvious reference to the cycling world. The use of separate elements to make up the frame of the armchair makes it possible to play with the graphics and thus create multiple combinations and possibilities of customization. The armrests can be embellished with side pockets which are useful to store books and magazines or to keep remote controls within easy reach. Eddy is available with or without headrest. Frame in metal, painted in a variety of colours. Upholstery in leather or eco-leather.

A DESIGN FOR EVERY STAR SIGN Which style best suits you? You may believe in them or not, but hands up anyone who doesn’t enjoy reading about the characteristics of star signs, comparing them to the traits of people that we know. We had fun linking the 12 star signs to different interior design styles. Do you see yourself in your star sign?
p ARIES Enthusiastic, brave and ready to throw themselves into new adventures, ambitious and with an iron will. Aries are stubborn oh, and don’t make them angry whatever you do: they’re impatient, act on instinct and are known for their outbursts.
52 DÉCOR Magazine
Kind, friendly and affectionate. They prefer concreteness over fantasy, certainty over uncertainty. Belongings and material possessions are particularly important to them. Sacred places for Taureans include the sofa, where theyâ€™d happily sit for hours, and the kitchen, the realm where they can best express their talents. 1
Likeable, inquiring and chatty: Geminis stand out for their intellectual liveliness. They have an inborn talent for transforming themselves: Geminis conceal a thousand different personalities, each one ready to play its part when the time is right.
Sensitive, sentimental, attractive and reserved. They may appear moody but their defences protect a gentle character with an irresistible emotional nature. What makes them happy? A warm, cosy home, a poetry book and being surrounded by the affection of loved ones.
t LEO Where are you most likely to find a Leo? On stage in front of an audience of at least one person. This is the most self-centred of all the signs but, thanks to their positive and cheerful nature, Leos attract others and are always in the limelight.
54 DĂ‰COR Magazine
Intelligent, analytical, perfectionists and well-organised, Virgos always manage to find the solution to any practical problem. 1
Wherever there’s beauty, you’ll find a Libra, whether it be a museum, a theatre or a stylish boutique. Vain, sophisticated, sensitive and with a strong sense of what’s right. Libras are famous for their charisma and their ability to get on well with others. They swing from one emotion to another, often finding themselves facing hundreds of different crossroads. 1
DÉCOR Magazine 55
Love them or hate them, Scorpios do not go unnoticed. Intuitive, sensitive, determined and ready to face anything that life throws at them. Although they may appear cold and reserved, they are actually driven by great passions which may suddenly take over.
Sagittarians are real adventurers and love exploring the world. Optimistic, sociable, sincere and generous, Sagittarians dream of a perfect place where they can enjoy life’s pleasures, without any complications. They always have something to discover, to do, to embark on: it doesn’t matter how it turns out, it’s the passion, moving forward and enthusiasm that count.
56 DÉCOR Magazine
r CAPRICORN Finally, someone who gets straight to the point! A Capricorn is certainly not one to waste time on frivolities. They get down to work, plough on through and reach whatever goal it is they’ve set their sights on, all within the set time frames. Capricorns are headstrong, wise and as solitary as Buddhist monks, only opening up to very few people, but when they do it’s always with plenty of generosity and affection.
o AQUARIUS Bursting with imagination, unconventional and a little eccentric, Aquarians are friendly and kind: anything new, futuristic and ingenious belongs to this star sign.
Emotional and romantic, sweet and wistful, incredibly creative and unpredictable. What do they like best? To kick back and relax, watching a film with a cat on their lap and their life partner by their side. 1

The great thing about using geometric pattern tiles in the home is that there’s so many ways to use them, it’s a really versatile design choice! It’s an opportunity to be really creative and express your individuality.

MCZ GROUP ALL SOULS OF FIRE
MCZ offers an extensive range of pellet-fuelled or wood-burning stoves and fireplaces, featuring a variety of shapes, sizes, colours and materials. We can also meet many different heating requirements, for example you can choose simple heating for a single room or other heating solutions for an open space or even for an entire house or flat. Furthermore, MCZ believes it is important to offer the end customer an excellent service. MCZ retailers are actually consultants, who are available to assist the customer throughout all project stages: starting from a preliminary study of your requirements and a technical inspection, through to preparing a quote for the project and, finally, installation and the first start-up.
STOVES AND FIREPLACES FOR EVERY ROOM OF THE HOUSE With minimal or decorative lines, different shapes and the latest technology, stoves and fireplaces can be the focal point in any room of the house. The living room and the kitchen, but also unusual or small places such as the bedroom, bathroom or corridor â€“ any space is a suitable for an area with a fire. Here are a few examples among the latest new products from the wood and pellet collections by MCZ.
Available from: www.mczgroup.com
64 DĂ‰COR Magazine
MCZ offers a full range of pellet stoves featuring a more compact depth and therefore suitable for small spaces such as corridors. One of the latest models of the collection is Linea, which is only 29 cm deep. Like all new MCZ products, Linea is sealed, and since it draws oxygen from outdoors rather than inside the room, it can be safely installed in compact spaces.
The LiViNG AreA MCZ stoves are the result of advanced aesthetic and technological research. This is why they are also suitable for more visible settings, like living areas. MCZ offers both minimal lines and more decorative models, to the point that you can find a stove suitable for the most diverse styles. The Deco stove in the picture, which is entirely made of cast iron and available in both natural and white enamel, conveys an elegantly retro British style combined with the latest pellet technology.
DĂ‰COR Magazine 65
The diNiNG room A dining room heated with the warmth of a fireplace is everyoneâ€™s dream. The MCZ collection offers various fireplace models, both wood and pellet ones, and their essential lines easily blended with any furnishing style. The Plasma 75 model in the photo is a compact wood fireplace with front loading and a sealed firebox. It is also suitable in passive homes and high-energy performance ones.
66 DĂ‰COR Magazine
The kiTcheN The kitchen is the heart of the house. This is where once the stove would normally be â€“ the most welcoming and cosy place where most time was spent. Every stove can heat different rooms at the same time via the ducting system. Therefore, it is no longer necessary to install them directly in the room to heat. However, the kitchen is still the classic setting and is a good choice even when combined with modern designs and architecture, as shown in the photo here to the side (the photo shows the Halo pellet stove).
DĂ‰COR Magazine 67
The bedroom The flame has a relaxing effect. What better than falling asleep while looking at the crackling fire of a stove? All new MCZ stoves are sealed and draw oxygen from outdoors rather than from the room where they are installed. This is why they can also be used safely in the bedroom or in a one-room flat. The photo shows the Stub Overnight wood stove.
The sTudy A room in the house where to peacefully work or read and study is a luxury many cannot do without. In such important rooms, light and a crackling flame help you focus, but it is important to choose the right product. The Ego pellet stove in the photo is particularly quiet since the fan can be switched off completely without the risk of overheating.

The bAThroom In contemporary homes, the bathroom is the core of domestic well-being. It has acquired a key place with regard to the space occupied and the care and attention dedicated to designing it. Inside these new, spectacular bathrooms, MCZ offers stoves that adorn the room, whatever the style. The photo shows a minimalist modern bathroom heated with a Swing pellet stove, which can also generate hot water.

The weLLNess AreA At a time when seeking wellness and tranquillity is given the utmost priority, the option of recreating a small private spa is everybodyâ€™s wish. The natural flame of a stove, like Tilda in the photo, gives this kind of room a completely new light where you can find energy and harmony.
The ATTic Restoring an attic is a very common option to increase space in the home, but sometimes warming up this space appropriately may not be easy. The home boiler may not be enough for the new space. Sometimes even the woodburning fireplace is an impracticable option for the attic because ceilings are usually too low (the fireplace requires a large size chimney for a perfect force draught). For this kind of space the most popular solutions are pellet stoves, easy to install and practical in operation. In the photo, the Club pellet stove is available in several versions: Air to warm up the attic, Comfort Air to warm up also downstairs through wall-mounted tubing if needed, Hydro to supply the radiators if present.

Ironic, irreverent, provocative Indigo reproduces the colors and the matericity of traditional Azulejo tiles, completely altering their iconography, to propose a mix of 63 subjects, each and every single one seemingly inspired by a world with no apparent connection to another in terms of style, and spanning a total of ten centuries of our history. Made in glazed porcelain stoneware, Indigo can also be used as a floor tile. As well as the decorated tiles, Indigo is also proposed as a base tile, with a plain backdrop and without décor, in the 20x20 Ret and 20x60 Ret sizes.
PLEASE NOTE! Indigo is meant to be a random mix of the 63 subjects that compose the series. Each individual tile is checked throughout the production process and is guaranteed to be free from defects, although absolutely no control is possible in the way the single subjects are selected to be packaged into boxes: it is not possible to guarantee the presence of certain subjects in boxes purchased, or that one or more images of the same subject will not be inside a box or inside different boxes irrespective of the number of boxes purchased. The presence of any such double subject does not ordinarily invalidate the total aesthetic impact of the installation, as long as the pieces are spaced sufficiently apart over the area to be tiled.

The multi award-winning studio grupoarquitectura, established in 1980 by Daniel Ă lvarez in Mexico City, has picked the Lithos Design Primes line for a luxury project in his home city, a private residence in the Santa Fe district. Departamento Basalto spans a surface area of 38m2 distributed over two storeys; multiple materials - Nogal wood for the walls, Basaltic Stone in the communal areas, Calacatta marble in the bathrooms and Bardiglio Nuvolato marble for the partition in the entrance hall - blend together to create a uniform and continuous space that is only interrupted to allow the breathtaking city views to seep in through the large floor-to-ceiling windows.

Iride from the Diaframmi collection was installed in the entrance hall to welcome guests upon arrival, acting as both a work of art and a partition. Placed right behind the dining table, Iride in fact defines the room and sets the entrance hall aside into a cosy space, creating an iconic backdrop for diners: the stone wall does not go unnoticed and is concurrently lightweight thanks to its silhouettes and perforations. Through research and technology, Lithos Design revolutionises the decorative use of stone, which turns into a sculptural item of interior dĂŠcor with multiple functions: from a decorative element that embellishes its surroundings like a work of art, to a partition capable of defining the architectural space.

The 1980s was a time filled with neon colors, geometric patterns and crazy experiments both in the field of fashion and design. Luckily, the nature of all trends is cyclical - and now all these tendencies from before almost four decades are coming back in a number of diverse incarnations. The collection is a combination of motives inspired by Keith Haring painting style with furniture from the era of Italian postmodernism, the Ettore Sottsass’s designs, among others. It is a tribute to the 80s style, which Pixers refreshes and modernizes. Into the Groove is a collection of Pixers products that features geometric patterns, bold colors and strong contrasts. It’s a proposition for people who live dynamically, love the fast rhythm of the city life and aren’t afraid of original compilations. This collection has been inspired by the revival of the 80s style both in fashion and design. Its motto is “Dance for Inspiration!”, the first words from Madonna’s song from 1986 – says Magdalena Zięba, Pixers’ stylist. “The collection is vibrant, bold and energetic, in line with the contemporary lifestyle and constantly changing world of trends”, says Magdalena Zięba. All the patterns from the collection freely combine seemingly unmatched prints, following the Jeremy Scott’s maniere. Swirling geometries taken from the early Madonna’s music videos energize and intrigue – a little kitschy, sometimes sophisticated, and invariably crazy. Such prints look good in hotels’ foyers, modern restaurants, and bars, but they will also match simple Scandinavian furniture and cozy wooden finishes of contemporary private apartments. For more products from the collection visit Pixers and read more about the trend on Pixers Stories.

ESSENTIALS WOOD MOOD ARIANA, a historic company of the Sassolese area, since 1967 represents the originality and elegance of ceramic products. From a continuous confrontation with the trends dictated by the interior design and thanks to the contribution of exclusive technologies, ARIANA offers unique and special furnishing surfaces. The ARIANA floors and linings, combining a strong personality with cutting-edge technical performance, become solutions to the newest and most amazing projects.
With the new ESSENTIAL collection, Ariana rediscovers all the natural appeal of wood. The series is inspired by the natural materials used in furnishing and architecture and in particular by untreated wood, which is ideal for creating warm, welcoming atmospheres. ESSENTIAL comes in a palette of four colours. Almond is the palest tone, designed to enhance the luminosity of interiors. The colour Beige stands out for its understated elegance that blends in perfectly with the most varied styles of furnishing. Oak is the warmest and most intense colour in the range, while Grey is the ideal version for spaces with a contemporary design. The elegant colours of the ESSENTIAL collection are the perfect addition to the Ariana catalogue and are ideal for experimenting with different combinations of materials and colours, an operation that is facilitated by the range of rectified modular sizes present in the various collections. The new decorative solutions such as the Rombo 30 format and the mesh-mounted Mosaico Rombo allow users to explore new and visually-striking layouts. ESSENTIAL is also the result of Arianaâ€™s most advanced ceramic technologies, WIDE and Auto-leveling. The two ESSENTIAL 20x120 cm and 26x200 cm plank sizes, obtained from WIDE ceramic panels, are produced using CONTINUA+ technology, a revolutionary pressing system that uses dry compaction of raw materials to create surfaces with extraordinary technical qualities. Due to their size, their 7 mm thickness and the natural plasticity of the ceramic bodies, the porcelain planks have a high degree of flexibility. Thanks to this elasticity, ESSENTIAL adheres perfectly to the screed and selflevels after laying, guaranteeing excellent flatness and a perfect installation every time.

With a bright, vibrant name it’s no surprise that Sunny Todd would become a creative inspiration. After graduating from the Royal College of Art, Sunny was commissioned by Topman to design wallpaper and fabrics for their stores. Realising that his bold and unique style of prints was best suited to interiors he went on to create Sunny Todd Prints along with his wife Emma in 2013. Working from their studio in Ledbury, Hertfordshire this creative pair produce striking pieces for the home, beautiful interiors and have become best known for their show stopping colour combinations and unique, hand cut shapes arranged into dynamic patterns. Computers are not used during the design process. After being named as Elle Decoration’s ‘Name to watch’, they are already enjoying success with international stockists for their fabric and products. Décor Magazine chats with Sunny to what it’s like to work with your wife and what’s next for this bold brand… Who were your earliest influences? I grew up in a very artistic householdmy parents were chefs and ran restaurants around the country in places including London, Bristol, Cornwall and Herefordshire. My parents always took a keen interest in art and design; the house was full of music, good food, art, fashion and interior books and magazines, beautiful furniture and a lot of bright prints from artists such as Hockney, Matisse, Hodgkin, Frost and Heron. My mum was particularly passionate; she would often tear articles from magazines that she thought I might like and would often take us to Heal’s and the Conran shop. She always encouraged my brother Leo and I to be creative, and although we were initially more interested in Football, we have both ended up working in creative industries. How did you come to work with your wife Emma? Emma and I have always worked really well together, we love discussing ideas, drawing and printing together but having a young family and demanding teaching jobs meant that we had little time to pursue freelance work. We knew that the work we
were making was unique and was getting stronger and stronger so we decided to take the plunge and set up Sunny Todd Prints in 2013. Initially we wanted to concentrate on furnishing fabric but very quickly started to develop a small range of products. The birth of our second child in 2014 gave us a real push as Emma was able to use some of her maternity leave to concentrate on setting up our studio, building relationships with local suppliers and makers, and establishing links with some companies on our dream collaboration list which has led to some very exciting projects such as our recent collaboration with Flock. If you could describe your brand how would you? Sunny Todd Prints produces beautiful, irresistible patterns for interiors, fashion and products. My training was in textile design and I specialized in silk screen printing but we create patterns in many traditional ways but always by hand, never with computers! Most of our designs start as stencils, once we have an idea we will cut out the shapes from black paper and lay them out over white paper on the dining room table at home. Over the following days we will
move them around and even chop into them to explore composition and scale until we are completely happy with the pattern, the relationship between and the movement of the shapes. The selection of colours is as important, we mix pigment inks by eye and create a range of colour swatches to explore how the tones work together. We’ll then experiment with the colour combinations for each pattern before deciding how these fit together as a collection. In a nutshell our patterns are characterised by bold, clean, graphic shapes that are fun and dynamic. Our signature ‘offset’ gives our patterns extra energy and makes the shapes take on a 3D appearance. Who & what inspires you? Everything! We love the Paul Smith quote-„You can find inspiration in everything, and if you can‘t, look again“ We love design in all its forms and read about, see shows and explore new ideas as much as we can. We re endlessly inspired by our children- they are so in the moment and they create things with sheer joy, freely and without reserve- they are great fun! DÉCOR Magazine
What doesn’t inspire you ? Muted colours such as beige and very rigid design, we think that design should be fun and without rules! What projects have you been recently working on? Putting together our first fabric book was a real labour of love and hugely significant for us, we hand cut and arranged all of the designs then painstakingly mixed the colours by eye then experimented endlessly until we were happy with the collection. Seeing the finished fabrics and then putting the book together was such a proud moment, the fact that our book is now held in some of the most prestigious places in the UK and Internationally has been such a thrill! What do you think the future holds for design & art? We are continually excited and
inspired by all forms of Art and Design, we hope the current movement towards supporting independent designers and sustainable practices will continue! The quality and sustainability of our fabric and products is paramount, we always use the highest quality materials that are sourced as locally as possible, we print using environmentally friendly, water based inks, and our products are handmade by local seamstresses. Who do you think are the most influential artists & designers in recent years? Phillipe Stark, Issey Miyake, Thomas Hetherwick, Hussain Chalayan, Nathalie Du Pasquier What artists and designers have inspired you in your lifetime? Eley Kishimoto, Henri Matisse, Howard Hodgkin, Keith Haring, Marimekko,
What is your favourite colour & why? We love all bright and bold colours but I always come back to red, especially when combined with other clashing shades our hot pink and red fabrics are a real favourite, as The World of Interiors said- our work radiates optimism, we think everyone should add more colour into their lives! What’s next for Sunny Todd Prints and where do you see yourself in five years’ time? We’re really keen to see our patterns on wallpaper and to make the cross over from interiors to fashion. In five years’ time we hope to have established ourselves as a highly respected design company, working in both the interior and fashion industries and to have stockists all over the world, perhaps even a store of our own.

BONALDO Bonaldo was established in 1936 and it specialises in the production of interior design items: tables, chairs, accessories, sofas and beds. Passion, research, quality: these are the guidelines that have always represented Bonaldo’s character. The production takes place entirely in Italy, with an all-Italian taste, and every component is certified for its authenticity and great quality, yet the company has an international spirit which is interpreted by more than twenty-five different Italian and foreign designers. Partnerships with major designers and the ever-new manufacturing technologies implemented allowed Bonaldo to receive prestigious accolades and prizes such as the Red Dot Design Award, the Good Design Award from the Chicago Athenaeum and the iF Design Award.

Bonaldo, Italian company specialized in the production of interior design items, among its collections offers a wide range of chairs suitable for every setting, both contract and private, indoor and outdoor. Here is a selection of chairs ranging from those with leather or fabric upholstery to those entirely realized with plastic material, from the most recent ones to Bonaldo’s timeless best sellers.
LIAS CHAIR Lias is the new chair designed by Gino Carollo. Lias, expression that derives from the word layers, is the term used in European geology to point out the early Jurassic period, when the Earth’s stratification was formed. Indeed, layers defines the design of this new chair. The border follows the entire silhouette of the seat and of the backrest, with two edges which draw its contour: a well-finished tailoring detail which emphasises the comfort granted by the generous padding.

BAHIA CHAIR Light graphic marks define the Bahia chair designed by Mauro Lipparini.
Curved shapes and simple tubular metal elements create a balanced shape, which is ideal both in residential settings and in smart contract environments (such as offices, waiting rooms, hotel lobbies). The curved backrest extends forward in a single line, allowing the arms to rest freely while enveloping the userâ€™s back for maximum comfort.

FILLY CHAIR Filly, a family of five seats that are entirely upholstered with removable covers, is designed by Bartoli Design and is the result of formal and technical research carried out with a view to developing a versatile product in which comfort, functionality and styling are complementary attributes. Shapes and dimensions vary in order to satisfy every requirement, including the need to combine different versions in the same setting: Filly, with traditional dimensions; Filly up, with a higher back for improved comfort; Filly large, with a wider seat; Miss Filly, with armrests; Filly too, the stool. Upholstery: leather, eco-leather or fabric. Legs: upholstered or with visible metal legs mat painted in many colors.
GIUSEPPINA CHAIR In creating Giuseppina, designed by Dondoli e Pocci, Bonaldo was inspired by the current trend in which reassuring, classic shapes are reinterpreted and modernised, thanks to contemporary materials, production techniques and formal details. Giuseppina is therefore a modern, ironic reinterpretation of the traditional kitchen chair, whose shape is used in this chair. It is transformed into something new and up to date through the types of material used and the six colours in which it is offered: non-transparent white, black and red, transparent or semi-transparent smoked and violet. Its mix of tradition and modernity brings Giuseppina out of the restrictive environment of the kitchen, from which it takes its inspiration, to adapt to others, for example terraces and gardens or contract use. Frame: polycarbonate, through gas injection moulding in a single piece Sizes: L46 x D53 x H84 cm

Back to the roots Clay Furniture by Yakusha Design
116 DĂ‰COR Magazine
Clay - is one of the oldest building material in human history, however you will not find many ceramic furniture objects or other decor pieces nowadays. As an artisan tool and design element clay is very plastic, timid and not easy to deal with for an artist. Still even small clay details of furniture can deliver a very warm and positive vibes for your home. Artisan furniture collection FAINA was created in 2014 by Ukrainian architect and designer Victoriya Yakusha. Central element of her minimalist ethnic collection is clay. â€œPottery traditions in Ukraine are very old, they starts from Trypilian culture in ancient times, - says Victoriya. - I decided go back to our roots and create contemporary furniture using materials and techniques of our ancestorsâ€?. While working on collection she collaborated with 8 Ukrainian artisans in order to develop ceramic pieces, make them durable, textured and still looking interesting in the aesthetic sense. The seemingly fragile nature of clay actually turned out to be very reliable and stable.
118 DĂ‰COR Magazine
Today her essential collection FAINA contains of 10 design objects: round table, sideboard, cabinet, ceramic floor and pendant lamps, washbasin and set of vases. Each piece is handmade and absolutely unique, there is no mass production. You can model different sizes and change colour - from natural beige to black chocolate. “Looking back to the very first moment when I got the idea of this collection, the first furniture I ever designed, I can say that there was a very strong desire in my heart to make our national ethnicity understandable and recognisable in a modern world, - said Victoriya, author of clay furniture FAINA. And my main tool to achieve this goal was my favourite language of minimalism and eco-design, which I use for 15 years in my interiors and architect projects”.
“Inspiration is everywhere, you just have to look with your eyes wide open”
Victoriya Yakusha is a Ukrainian architect and interior designer, the author of many residential and public interiors, owner and general manager of Yakusha Design Studio, author of artisan ethno furniture collection FAINA. Using bold and unconventional techniques she creates ecominimalist interiors and design furniture. Victoriya has shaped her style under the influence of European understanding of architecture and design while studying in France and adopting experience from such interior design trend setters as Marcel Wanders, Zaha Hadid and Kelly Hoppen.

Contemporary design and great products are things that Danetti think everybody should be able to have. Their approach is simple but the belief behind it is much bigger. They want products to be more than just furniture. They’re about design and function but also experiences, memories, families, comfort, the everyday and the unusual.
WALNUT TREND Walnut has made a real comeback recently – it’s rich grain and deep colour has a luxurious premium feel. Generally Walnut has a straight grain with lighter and darker elements which means it is hugely versatile as you can bring out the tones in other areas of your scheme. Walnut sits as comfortably with opulent velvets and jewel colours as it does with greys and soft pastels. It can be used in traditional or contemporary schemes too; Walnut will help set a retro vintage scene with ease or can be used to accessorise an urban look or simply spruce up a more traditional scheme... whatever you need! Danetti have embraced the walnut trend!
The belief is that everybody should have the opportunity to enjoy their home, whether that’s curled up in a cosy occasional armchair or sat around a dining table with all the family for dinner. The customer’s needs are always at the forefront when they begin the product development journey, with a real focus on finding modern furniture solutions for everyday homes. From exclusive ranges to in house photography and styling, Danetti pride themselves on creating furniture that combines functionality, form and style. They want you to buy with absolute confidence, not just in their products and service but that you have made the right choice.

STYLE THAT NEVER GOES OUT OF FASHION For 30 years now, Italian premium lighting manufacturer ARTEMIDE has been illuminating our homes and workspaces with the elegant and versatile Tolomeo lamp. The word classic is often overused and many objects and trends pretend to become timeless icons, but a classic product is one that still looks fresh and functions as well as it did the day it was launched. The Tolomeo lamp is one such product; elegant, timeless, functional and still appealing to todays modern buyer. Produced 30 years ago by Italian designer Michele De Lucchi the design was conceived after De Lucchi witnessed fishermen manoeuvring nets attached to a system of poles and ropes, “It seemed smart to me that you can suspend a rod with something attached to it using a small lever arm and a cable,” the designer explains. So the designer set to work and came up with the idea for an adjustable task lamp featuring a mechanism based around steel tension cables. Since its release, Tolomeo has been updated several times in response to evolving technologies, including more efficient light sources but the ethos remains the same a heavy base, polished-aluminium arm sections, and a matte-aluminium reflector housing the bulb. The mechanism a 360-degree rotating shade and exposed external cables, contribute to its engineered aesthetic and status as an icon of high-tech design making it a symbol of Made in Italy and used throughout the world, in homes, offices, hotels, architecture studios, photographic and cinemas Like all classics variations of the piece have been developed with several large and small variations, ranging from the tiny Tolomeo Micro to the giant Tolomeo XXL. A table clamp, screw fastening or wall bracket offer different mounting options, while dimmer switches or movement sensors enhance the product’s functionality. There is even a series of coloured options that gives the lamp a more eye-catching and playful presence.

JEEG - MODULAR SMALL TABLE Jeeg is the first project by Bartoli Design for Mogg: a modular small table fitting both for residential and nonresidential spaces, with a multifaceted, irregularly octagonal perimeter; it’s made of two separate, complementary elongated pieces which may be used singularly or combined to get several compositions. Jeeg’s main feature is the possibility of deconstructing, reconstructing and combining one or more small tables, to create a variety of configurations, even of considerable sizes. “Our project”, Bartoli Design explains, “was inspired by the idea of fracture and rearrangement of the pieces. Stones fractures are fascinating, we’ve already developed this subject in a collection of rugs… Additionally, we studied the dimensions of outer and inner sides so that they allow different combinations, as if Jeeg were a construction play”. The tables are entirely made of ash wood, natural or anilinedyed in a range of numerous shades, so that colours and shapes become an alphabet to be assembled.

MAKE LOVE NOT WAR Viennese artist Rainer Weber believes in art, not war, and to illustrate the point he has turned used AK-47 Kalashnikov rifles, the world’s favourite weapon into a luxurious limited edition chair. The AK47 Chair is comprised of actual guns, or formally guns, with 4 stb AK47 featuring a fixed stock and 2 stb AK47 featuring a so-called folding stock. Rest assured, the weapons were completely dismantled and welded back together to create the incredible framework, while all dismantled parts were chrome-plated before being put pack together. The arms rests and backrests were ordered at Backhousen, in Vienna, and were hand woven in Venice at the famed Luigi Bevilacqua Company. The original pistol grips were varnished in Black, however this limited edition has been coated in 22k gold. Another highlight is the original Russian steel helmet, gold-plated, of course – and a cartridge belt with original but decommissioned AK-47 cartridges. The limited edition chair is numbered and signed but is likely to remain out of reach of all but the very wealthy with a hefty price tag of $127,000

GEORG JENSEN introduces the MANHATTAN COLLECTION
From decadent champagne buckets to elegant coasters and corkscrews, Georg Jensen introduces the comprehensive new bar collection, Manhattan. Craf ted in sleek, mirror polished steel, the 17-piece series was inspired by iconic, Art Deco marvels like the Empire State and the Chrysler Building in its namesake New York City. Repurposing the clean lines and geometric symmetry at the heart of the Deco aesthetic—which has always been an integral part of the Georg Jensen design legacy. Manhattan is a bold, 21st century homage to the enduring glamour of cocktail culture.
164 DÉCOR Magazine
Inspiration was also found closer to home in Copenhagen, as the collection’s in-house designer, Sanne Lund Traberg, sifted through the company archives – a treasure-trove of sketches, photographs and original objects from more than a century of Georg Jensen masterworks. Of par ticular interest to Traberg was the stepped motif used extensively in Pyramid, a collection designed by Georg Jensen legend Harald Nielsen in 1922. By adjusting the scale and propor tion of Nielsen’s classic design, while nodding to the bold silhouettes of New York ’s storied skyline, Traberg has infused classic Georg Jensen language with new flair in
an architectural collection with a decidedly contemporary edge. “It’s wonder ful when we can look backward and forward at the same time, and it’s important that today’s designs have a strong link with our history,” Traberg says of the collection. “Ar t Deco is of course very impor tant to Georg Jensen, but with Manhattan we’ve presented a more modern expression of that era.”

TrAdITIon And dEsIgn made in Italy
A novel worktop that evokes the tradition of Italian master craftsmen. This is the new functional/aesthetic addition to the Minà kitchen, the popular multifunctional island from the Trevisobased company Minacciolo, which combines tradition with cutting-edge technology. Modern lines, contemporary style and sophisticated harmony are just a few of the phrases that could be used to describe this new option for the Minà kitchen. The multifunctional island offers a different concept, a design that returns texture to the kitchen, enhancing tactile feel while also providing visual appeal. A coveted new addition. Minà features a pewter-plated steel worktop combined with a breakfast bar tiled in lava stone. This exquisite artisanal product is made by laying Sicilian glazed volcanic stone tiles over a water-repellent support. The stone is quarried from the bottom of lava flows at the foot of Mt. Etna, and crafted to create tiles in custom sizes. The final step in the extraordinary production process is handdecorating the tiles using special artistic techniques. The result is a product that is highly resistant to chemical, physical and mechanical stress, as well as freezing, wear and stains, making the kitchen worktop a work of art that offers excellent technical performance. This unmistakable and original worktop is the perfect complement to the black graphite embossed steel used for the Minà island. A kitchen unparalleled in terms of design, materials and worktop options, which Minacciolo always selects from among the finest Made in Italy products.
Lava Stone The first step in producing a glazed volcanic stone product involves choosing the volcanic stone support, which must come from the bottom of the lava flow rather than the surface. The stone is quarried from the bottom of the lava flow at the foot of Mt. Etna and the formless rock is then worked to produce tiles of the desired size. The compact grey stone tiles are then prepared for transfer to the artistic department. The stone tiles are covered with a layer of ceramic glaze approximately 3 mm thick, and dried for at least 12 hours. The next step in the production process is decoration using special artistic techniques. The final, equally long step is firing the tiles at a temperature of about 1000Â° for approximately 24 hours, which fuses the glaze and the colours of the decoration to the volcanic stone to create a single piece.

Minà combines the highest expressions of tradition and technology in a new-concept multifunctional island. The essence and details of its form draw on the purest archetype and have strong proto-industrial connotations. But the suggestions of this bygone style, from the red knobs to the extraction hoods, are daringly modernised and the personality thus created will stand up to and dialogue with interiors of all kinds: modern, traditional and classic. A kitchen that becomes a “forge”, where fire is not just a cooking medium but a creative force. Designed to be a real “cooking machine”, Minà still strongly evokes its design archetype: the first cast-iron wood-burning cooking stoves. With island or wall-mounted layout, without limits on its size or modularity, Minà can be installed in rooms of all kinds: from the open space of a loft to the small city apartment. The decision to build Minà in steel reinforces and underlines this “machine’s” tactile strength. It is made from laser-cut steel, painted a “graphite” black colour to evoke the soot that clung to the old stoves. The special stoved enamel used gives the steel a tactile look and is particularly tough.create tiles in custom sizes.

HERITAGE REIMAGINED IN A STUNNING BATHWARE COLLECTION
apaiser is excited to unveil its latest and arguably most ground-breaking collection to date – SAMPAN – developed in collaboration with leading international design firm, WOHA. The Sampan collection applies the strikingly unique tapered shapes of the traditional boats of the Singapore waterfront to a bathware collection of revolutionary design. Reflected in a series of baths and basins, as well as an innovative ‘shower bath’, these unique designs transform bathing into something more akin to a romantic journey!
Singapore is the home of WOHA, and also the Asia-Pacific base of Australian bathware company, apaiser. The WOHA studio, located in a conserved cluster of traditional ‘shophouses’ behind Boat Quay, is where the iconic sampan boats were once moored in great numbers on the Singapore river These areas, steeped in colonial history, are at the heart of the story behind the Sampan collection. Sampan - the Cantonese word meaning three boards - describes these uniquely designed but simple form of watercraft, fashioned by hand from a flat plank of wood as its base, with two angled planks making up the sides. Celebration of this vanishing heritage was the direct inspiration for this stunning new bathware collection.
Like all apaiser designs, each piece is hand crafted using the innovative material exclusive to apaiser known as apaisermarble. Sampan comes in four elegant shades – Glacier, Diamond White, Starry Night and Luxe Grey – the five designs across baths and basins sized to suit a variety of interior applications, with the unique ‘shower bath’ a particularly clever innovation which responds to more limited spatial options given its dual purpose form. Sampan became part of WOHA’s dedicated submission for MAISON OBJET PARIS, 2017, and which has ultimately seen this forward-thinking firm selected as ‘Designer of the Year – Asia’, an award that was officially announced on September 08, 2017. The Sampan collection is available via apaiser showrooms globally (or visit www.apaiser.com/sampan).

A tranquil sandstone effect in modular colours and formats V&B Fliesen GmbH manufactures Villeroy & Boch brand-name tiles and is one of the worldâ€™s leading manufacturers of ceramics. The company now operates in more than 80 countries. More than 700 people are employed at the company headquarters in Merzig and at its site in La FertĂŠ-Gaucher. Highquality materials are used in the manufacture of sophisticated premium ranges for the bathroom, living areas and architecture. Villeroy & Bochâ€™s new HUDSON floor range takes its inspiration from the expressive charm of natural sand paintings and landscapes. This select design captures the delicate grain of sand surfaces, which are then authentically reinterpreted in ceramic. The result is convincing: with its warm, gentle colours, subtle shading and homogeneous yet convincing sandstone structure, worked in a delicate relief, HUDSON has a natural, timeless appearance. The unglazed vilbostone porcelain stoneware range is perfect for tranquil, understated surface designs in modern architecture. The HUDSON colour scheme includes four natural shades: the warm white sand and sand tones and the cooler colours with warm background nuances, clay and volcano, bring a homely, minimalist atmosphere to any room. With nine different formats, including one OUTDOOR TILE format with a thickness of 2 cm, the range
is a comprehensive architectural concept, comprising everything from slim tiles to square and rectangular large-format tiles and offering planners the perfect solution for any design or combination. HUDSON comes in different surface finishes and non-slip class R9 to R11/C for the broadest possible range of applications. The tiles with a rough-polished surface and R9 non-slip rating are available in 30 x 60 cm and 60 x 60 cm formats. All formats come with matt finishes that offer non-slip class R10/A ideal for swimming pools, saunas or wellness facilities. In addition, the HUDSON range includes a 7.5 x 7.5 cm mosaic on 30 x 30 cm mesh, a 2.5 x 15 cm decorative strip mosaic, large-format 30 x 120 cm stair tiles with milled grooves along the front edge for use in public and semi-public projects, and 7.5 x 60 cm strip skirting.
Available from: www.villeroyboch-group.com
The HUDSON portfolio is completed by OUTDOOR TILES with a thickness of 2 cm in white sand, sand and volcano in 60 x 60 cm format. The design of these hardwearing outdoor tiles coordinates with the vilbostone interior porcelain stoneware, creating harmony across all floors and an elegant continuity between indoor and outdoor styles. The OUTDOOR TILES are colour-fast, light-fast and weatherresistant, and thanks to their vilbostone plus surface finish, are also resilient to dirt and easy to clean. As an added advantage, the tile edges are precisely cut to allow particularly aesthetic tiling and narrow joints. OUTDOOR TILES can also be laid in the conventional manner in a mortar bed, loosely in a gravel bed, on pile foundations or mortar bags, making them a practical, elegant solution for almost any situation. Furthermore, the tiles come with an R11/B slip rating and are therefore perfect for all wet area applications, especially swimming pools and pathways through wellness facilities or sauna gardens.
With its minimalist yet natural sandstone design, the HUDSON range makes a striking feature in areas requiring a timeless aesthetic, rendered in hard-wearing, easy-toclean materials, such as prestigiously-decorated public and semi-public areas like hotel foyers, hallways and office buildings, showrooms, shops, guest rooms and sanitary facilities in the hotel and hospitality industry. Its high slip resistance also makes the HUDSON range perfect for swimming pools and wellness facilities. In addition, HUDSON makes an attractive yet functional floor covering for outdoor areas or transitions between indoor and outdoor areas, such as entrances and stairwells.

Ten thousand kilometres from South Africa, and half a lifetime later following parallel careers, the brothers decided to build something together in their new home of Australia.

A modular collection, HIVE ensures each piece of furniture from armchair to sofa, stool, loveseat, table and half table, are made in the shape of a cell allowing for various compositions. The “Confident”, the “Conversation”, or the “Indiscrete” are some of the possible ambiance combinations from this range all of which facilitate conversation and contact between people. Designed with comfort in mind not purely to be desired and shown off but to be used and enjoyed. The elegant and refined aluminium structures, the signature of EGO Paris, allows for large and comfortable cushions. EGO Paris knows how to give shape to Batyline® canvas by Serge Ferrari which provides backs that are like “a protective screen, yet still open to the surrounding environment,” says Fabrice Berrux.
The cushions not only add a touch of style but are also a source of comfort making the Hive collection even more lively and adaptable. To make each furniture piece unique, the Hive collection benefits from EGO Paris’s large range of finishes, plus a selection of the famous Missoni Home® fabrics. The Hive collection truly is a hive where people can gather, share and chat all together. Smart, with a real graphic design, the Hive collection is an invitation for conviviality outdoors.

GARDEN LAYERS... GARDEN LAYERS, GANâ€™s first Outdoor Space, is an innovative proposal conceived by designer Patricia Urquiola that brings style and comfort to terraces, pools, beaches and other outdoor spaces. Patricia Urquiola travelled to India where she was captivated by the delicacy and harmony of the Mongol architecture she found there. Gardens, terraces and miniatures found their way into her restless imagination inspiring a new collection which from the very first spark of creativity she wanted to be for the outdoors. The end result is an incredible integration of tones, textures and patterns, traditionally found in indoor products, designed to be used out in the open.
Gandia Blasco, the Valencian family-run design company now widely recognised for its mainly white, outdoor furniture, began over sixty years ago as a textile manufacturer. In recent years, the Spanish company returned to its woven roots with a diverse collection of rugs for the home. Produced under the brand moniker, GAN, the rugs come in hand tufted and hand knotted varieties, standard and custom sizes, with designs influenced by a multitude of cultures including Persian, Arabic and Mediterranean. With an aggressive championing of talented and leading designers, each rug is meticulously created by hand in India in carefully and responsibly managed ateliers and has a unique, playful character without compromising quality or expectation.

On sand, or lawns, carpeting over a deck or just bringing an element of comfort to low benches, GARDEN LAYERS adds an extra touch of well-being and refinement to life outdoors, inspired by the long eastern tradition of lounging in open air spaces.
...brings the style and comfort of indoor spaces to the outdoors
The collection can be used for relaxation or sun bathing beside a pool, at the beach or on any surface near water. Also perfect to use under a shade, GARDEN LAYERS is a space of relaxation, of conversation in porches or under pergolas, given its adaptability to warm environments as well as other more moderate climates. It is made with particularly resistant high-tech fabrics and a quick-dry foam filling, so it doesnâ€™t require any additional maintenance.
The influence of the Orient in GARDEN LAYERS is evident in terms of the way it invites reclined relaxation on rugs and mats, supported on roll pillows and stuffed cushions. It can also be perceived in the fringes, the finishes and the geometry of its motifs.

GARDEN LAYERS is based on a modular system that allows users to create infinite compositions according to the needs and the layout of their spaces. The mattresses, roll pillows and cushions can be combined and contrasted according to the different textures and patterns or used on their own as individual pieces.

The collection is available in three colour groups: terracotta, grey ad blue. Its inspired design is combined with high-tech materials and fillings: weather resistant yarns and foams that dry rapidly (dryfast) in order to provide the perfect outdoor behaviour.

KE shading systems are widely appreciated for luxury installations worldwide. Specifically, KE boasts a longstanding experience in an exclusive area such as the French Riviera, and this is the case for this magnificent private villa in Cap dâ€™Antibes, a few kilometres from Nice and Cannes. The estate owner, who asked to create a more enjoyable outdoor space, combining practicality and design, was initially impressed by the essential design of Qubica Flat cassette awning, in the matt white version. Qubica sun awning, born from an intuition of Italian architect Robby Cantarutti, perfectly fits to the villa minimal architecture it adjusts to the facade, with a minimal impact, looking compact and elegant even when closed. Flat Qubica has been installed in the living area to provide maximum coverage in warmer hours and protect the outdoor relax area, decorated in white and pearl grey tones. In this area two Kolibrie shading systems in Dacron fabric were added as well: the elegance and nautical finishes of this sail, which is a real object of design with a great eye impact, immediately responded to the client needs. The two shading sails were placed in the poolside area. The third product chosen is Kedry Plus, the bioclimatic pergola, ideal for creating an area dedicated to the open kitchen, which had to be separated from the pool area and protected to create a functional cooking zone. Vertika rollers with Soltis 92 woven provide additional protection for kitchen equipment during winter months. During sunset hours, Vertika rollers filter the sunrays to ensure total protection for those who are cooking, blocking out any annoying reflections. Once again, KE stands out as a complete and integrated sun shading solutions supplier: a wide range of products that can adapt to more diverse situations, to satisfy every need and to add prestige to unique residential environments, enhancing any outdoor space.
