The Drum Side Tables for Scandinavian company Swedese feature beautifully hand turned bowls made from either natural, black or white stained solid ash that are presented within a black or white lacquered frame.
The frame consists of three equal profiles that form the base whilst also holding the bowl in place. The bowl simply rests on the frame and can be removed, or should a straight surface be required, reversed within the frame.
The charming tables have a unique character and come in three different heights and sit individually or look great when clustered together.

The studio's first foray into the world of lighting proved to be a successful one: the popular Circus Collection for British company Innermost features a family of three pendant lights taking its cue from the shape of a Victorian circus tent. The spun aluminium lamps are available in black or white with a golden interior gently reflecting the light.
The lamps work well individually or look lovely in clusters of different sizes and colours.

The Clair collection features a three dimensional front panel with faces stained in two tones. When viewed from the right side, the cabinets appear to be completely black; yet when viewed from the left, they seem to be brown.

Each piece in the collection is lovingly handmade to order by a single craftsman and carries the Warm trademark flag label. The 3 box sideboard features doors with concealed pin hinges and drawers on concealed drawer runners that open on push catches. The low unit features 4 drawers on concealed drawer runners and opens on push catches.

The Ramen stool creates an extra seat in living rooms, libraries and art galleries. Combined with others, it shapes various playful formations throughout the room it inhabits. As stools are generally used for temporary seating, the Ramen stool will have a sculptural presence in the room when not in use. It can sit happily as an objet d’art or find additional uses as a side table, for indoor or outdoor use.

The discovery of hexagonal extruded profiles, commonly used in the boating industry, inspired the design of this set of luxurious brass tables. In true celebration of the hexagonal form, the elements of the table consist of the hexagonal profile legs and hexagonal cross bars - seemingly merely resting above each other- which support the hexagonal brass top. The tables are coated in a clear lacquer to prevent oxidisation.

New Minimal Painting in Dialogue With Contemporary Furniture Design
Rocket/ Jonathan Stephenson presents a group show of new minimal painting and contemporary furniture. A European and American line-up of young artists and designers address minimalism and functionality - two areas often overlooked in the current art/design debate. The artist and designers in this show share a common use of geometry, computer plotting, metal fabrication, wood joinery and paint finishes. All explore a minimal aesthetic – they pare their works down to the essentials.
The artists in this show are not traditional painters. Their paintings are object-based. Many of their methods and materials are associated with product design. Even in the application of paint many of them use spray-guns and industrial paint finishes.
The designers could be misread as making minimalist sculpture but the fact is that all their pieces have clear functional uses in addition to their aesthetic qualities. (Anna Taylor)

Interior and Furniture Design for Berlin based Tapas Bar owned by Atilano González, German actor Daniel Brühl and partners.
Bar Raval is located in Berlin’s lively neighbourhood Kreuzberg.
The owners insisted on creating an authentic Tapas Bar: original tiles were sourced from Barcelona and accessories and vintage posters from elsewhere in Spain. Bar Raval’s interior includes classical bar elements and mixes modern finishes and details with authentic Spanish building components and materials. The light flooded space features an open kitchen cube; a prominent back bar displays the impressive wine selection on offer and informs the customers of daily and seasonal specials. High tables and stools create an informal atmosphere in the bar area, whilst seated dining is offered in the back of the restaurant for a more formal dining experience.
Since it’s opening in 2011 the restaurant has attracted a loyal fan base and has been growing its reputation across Germany and abroad.
Design in collaboration with Tim Stolzenburg

Implementation: Unit-Berlin Architects

Whilst giving the impression that precious metals have been merged seemingly invisibly with a fine layer of porcelaine, all is not what it seems. In reality the pendant lamps explore the application of contrasting finishes, their industrially spun manufacturing process in stark contrast to the hand applied finish. The matte shine of the brass, copper or graphite anodised aluminium is complemented by a high gloss finish.
The lampshades for British company Innermost are currently available in 4 different sizes in either copper or graphite.

Unusual in their shape at first glance, the function and purpose of the sculptural, minimalist coffee and side table only become apparent when placed together and their sloped surfaces create a display for literature.
The coffee table ‘has undergone an evolution from functional storage object to pedestal of culture often occupying a place of prestige where we display our cultural connections.’ The coffee table book is given a whole new importance; a statement is made by placing literature, art book or magazine openly on display.
The Prop Table was originally commissioned for London’s Rocket Gallery and featured in their exhibition ‘Book a Table’.

The side tables are ‘sliced’ from three equal sections of a circle to create a family of varying heights, that can be arranged in numerous formations or used individually as a sculptural object depending on the requirements of the user and the situation.
They are ideal to use alongside sofas; either to be pulled closely to the seat or over the arm. Felt bases protect the surface of floors. The tables are made from powder coated steel and are available in three colours to coordinate with decor or to become a statement piece for the living space.

A generously proportioned minimalist American Walnut desk magically unfolds into a clever work station that offers a wealth of storage and work surfaces. Storing office accessories, documents, cables and peripherals, when work is completed, the desk returns to its unassuming form and hides everything neatly away.
A fold out desk extension offers an additional surface when paperwork grows out of control. The cover of the main storage area folds up and offers a magnetic board to keep invitations and reminders visible at all times. All in all a clever all rounder.

Rocket/Jonathan Stephenson presents a group exhibition of Coffee Tables designed by contemporary designers, architects and artists from Europe and the United States. Each table in this new collection has been designed and made exclusively for Rocket.
‘Somehow, the occasional table turned into the coffee table, the Modern object of the twentieth century, the centrepiece of the living room, taking pride of place in front of the sofa. . . And now, in the twenty-first century, it has become an altar, where one displays one’s social and cultural aspirations by the careful placement of cautiously chosen stacks of coffee table books’ The coffee table coffee table book, Alexander Payne/James Zemaitis
The tables are exhibited together with a collection of minimalist Artists’ Books – historical and contemporary – by artists, designers, photographers and writers including Sol Lewitt, Bruno Munari, Ib Geertsen, Jasper Morrison and many more.
