Something Wicked This Way Comes


Something of an auspicious occasion, we’ve been involved in some seriously fruitful R & D sessions with Derlot’s Alexander Lotersztain at our Auckland showroom this week.

Alex and the product development team at UFL got together to brainstorm pipeline projects and put the finishing touches on collaborative pieces which will be launched to market in the coming months.

With the development of new product comes the bonds that grow from partnership and creative cooperation. The outcome is next-level design; something that wildly exceeds expectations and hurls new product into the market where before there was just the same old.

Alex has been named top 10 most influential designers by Scene Design Quarterly, and one of 100 most influential designers worldwide in &fork by Phaidon. He is the design adviser in a number of government and private projects, regularly presents at design events and conferences, and judges on design panels throughout Australia.

We love Prisma!

Prisma, brand new from Derlot in Australia, is a collection of angular lounges and ottomans that can be configured together to create an endless array of shapes.  Available in four modules, each Prisma seat has an angular asymmetric form so they can be clustered together. Stacked together they can form long sofas, small armchairs or banks of seating. Their shapes allow them to be positioned in the centre of the room, against the walls or in corners. Small wooden triangular Prisma tables nest neatly into the seats.

We absolutely love Prisma and can’t wait to see it used!
