Designed by architect Henrique Steyer, from Albus Design for Brazilian furniture manufacturer Florense, the Charm Collection is a new premium line of kitchens and wardrobes. The collection is said to take inspiration from the past, highlighting the attention to detail and fine woodwork, a blend of modern products based on old traditions. Several product lines were created, each one based on subjects that derive their histories from the pas: “I would like to see the future, designed based on my background.Going back is not for everyone, but it is worth a lot. It is worth it, even for a minute, to feel peaceful again. To predict the future, we study the past, reconstructing the present. We study without nostalgia or melancholy, but with the wisdom about bringing back to the current day all that was beautiful and has not been lost“. How do you appreciate this classic take on kitchens and wardrobes? [Photography by Federico Cedrone]
Handmade, elegant and solid, the Dixon Modular Storage Unit from Dare Studio is a beautiful example of well-made British design. Designed by Patrick Frey for Richard Lampert, the sleek, modest and rather demure Stak Trolley system is suited to home and office environments. German-Based Richard Lampert follows the motto: ‘as little as possible, as much as necessary’.
The Stacked system was designed by Julien De Smedt for Muuto. Held together using small clips, Stacked comprises modules of varied sizes that are arranged to create many different storage solutions and set-ups. The 835 Infinito modular bookcase was designed by Franco Albini for Cassina. Comprised of vertical elements, containers with doors or flaps and shelves in two depths, Infinito is an expression of possibilities that are designed to bring order to a space. Randomito from MDF Italia is a single unit hanging bookcase (available in white, orange, sand and green) that can also be turned upside down. Combining units provides a larger configuration with a striking visual impact.
