Bazaar – A Modern Mix

Style and innovation are the buzzwords for the latest crop of contemporary furniture

Bazaar – A Modern Mix JULY/AUGUST 2011

The Sushi collection by Edward Van Vliet for Moroso is constructed in layers: first a hard shell, then pillows of medium firmness and a final layer of soft cushioning. Each layer is distinguished by different fabrics specially developed for the collection—which includes poufs, sofas, chairs, rugs and lighting.

A soft leather shell characterizes the design of the Ginger chair, created by Roberto Lazzeroni for Poltrona Frau. Available in a swivel or fixed model, it comes in Dark Brown or Camel leather, with a base of wenge-colored ash.

This sleek, Italian-made wood dining table from Theodores boasts a steel base with a chrome finish for high reflectivity. It’s pictured with a round, chrome-accented wall mirror.

Resource Furniture’s Cabrio Space Saving System doubles as a spacious seven-foot desk in its daytime configuration and a twin bed by night. The desk is easily lifted up—no need to remove a single object from the desktop—then shifts back via a special piston-operated mechanism to reveal sleeping quarters. 

Swiss manufacturer Vitra, whose innovative furnishings earned the company the 2011 ICFF Editors Award for Body of Work at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair, collaborated with Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec to produce the Alcove High Back Loveseat. It’s made with a chromed tubular-steel frame, belt upholstery and fiberglass-reinforced plastic panels. Available through Contemporaria.

The Manning Console Table by Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams is made with a mix of materials including a smooth ash veneer, polished stainless steel and clear and white glass. The console features a floating drawer with a painted black interior and three glass shelves.

A modern take on the Adirondack Chair, the Emmet Lounge Chair from Room & Board is made of HDPE, a material that is 100 percent post-industrial and post-consumer recycled plastic; each chair is made from the equivalent of 400 recycled milk jugs.
