Treecabinet by Lotte van Laatum

‘The treecabinet is made of Dutch elm. The elm used for this cabinet was cut in 1999 as a result of the elm disease in Kloosterzande. The shape of the cabinet relates to the shape of the tree, conical and with the same width as a big Dutch tree on chest height. The shape of the front of the drawer has been left untouched as a memory of the natural shape of the tree.’

Drive-in wardrobe by Gaele Girault for droog

‘Pallets are usually discarded after transport, but with the Drive-in concept they become furniture pieces themselves. The objects have been created out of bamboo, a fast-growing and therefore more environmentally friendly material than basic wood.’


Your level by Ryohei Yoshiyuki

‘Objects are generally put down on various heights. If it were possible to take away the supporting furniture, the objects would float. Your level, eight separate tables of various heights, creates the same effect in the living room’

Muli sideboard by Ding3000

‘The sideboard muli is inspired by a mule. The body is made out of solid oak and houses a big drawer and a shed which is accessible from the top. The angled legs leave the impression of the sideboard being “walking”.’


Guerrilla Containers by Eva Prego + Cutu Mazelos (Stone Designs) for RS

‘These containers are shaped like the sandbags used in the trenches, and it is from that concept that they have derived their name. This is a piece with a dreamlike and conceptual character, which serves either as a container, space divider or as floor level seating. The Guerrilla Containers, designed and handsewn in the same way as coffee bags, are a reinterpretation of this warlike element, converting it into a domestic, intimate piece, which represents the desire to redefine something, originally so
dramatic, as a common, welcoming object’

Decades Chest of Drawers by Lisa Widén and Anna Irinarchos (WIS Design)

‘Not everything has to be brand new. Design can arise out of recycling the past. A chest made out of discarded drawers, found and rescued from flea markets. A mix of different styles from earlier decades, all enclosed in a single piece of furniture. The old drawers, with woods and knobs of various kinds, are enhanced by the new frame in white painted MDF’
