Our world travellers at UFL Group recently visited Orgatec in Cologne, Germany to find out what’s happening in the global commercial furniture sector.
The design powerhouse Lievore Altherr Molina have recently collaborated for Sellex to produce the SLAM Chair Program. Available in five different frames including aluminium with and without armrests, steel rod and steel tube with and without armrests, and four different shells: polypropylene, beech, oak (3D treated wood) and also upholstered – the options for customisation are endless.
Our new Italian agency Arper was in full force with a permanent stand at the Design Post (www.designpostkoeln.de). This wonderful space full of clever and trendy design was populated by the true design savvy and critics. Our first Arper shipment arrives late November, so make sure you are signed by to our database to be the first to hear when it arrives. Click here to sign up.
Our Spanish friends at Enea launched their new folding table Folio, especially conceived to offer versatile solutions to the demanding contract market. The clever designed table can be dismantled, folded and stacked with ease making these tables highly adaptable to spaces as different as offices, meeting/training rooms, conference settings, settings and other multifunctional spaces.
Japanese based Axona Aichi was one of the winners of the show, presenting their new Tipo chair and Serio table, whilst also showing current favourites Daylight and the CTZ Table. Tipo was the hit for us, from polypropylene to mesh seat and backs in a selection of colours, we can’t wait for our samples and stock to arrive.
The Daylight is a revolutionary new chair designed by Toru Iseki. It is completely environmentally friendly, the standard chair being constructed from recycled and recyclable materials. The resin found on the black and grey chairs are formed using six recycled car batteries and comply to the Japanese Ministry of the Environment’s Law on Promoting Green Purchasing as well as winning a Best of Neo-Con award at the largest North American world furniture trade fair.
The functional strengths of the Daylight also place it as a premium high density, multi-purpose stacking chair. When placed on the transport dolly it can be stacked 45 units high at a little over 2 metres high. Due to its incredibly light-weight structure, weighing 4.1kg, the arrangement and alignment of the chairs is simple and layouts are easily reconfigured thanks to the integral linking glides. Daylight is fabricated as one complete unit and the bonding of the frame and the back rest mean the chair is extremely durable and the mesh is protected from damage during stacking and storage.
Daylight mesh stacking chairs are ideally suited for high traffic uses including training, meeting and conference areas where users are with the chair for a long period. The mesh offers flexibility for different body shapes and prevents pressure points from forming as well as transparency to allow smooth air flow and ventilation. Available in black, grey or white with a powder coated or chrome frame finish, the Daylight chair is available exclusively from UFL Group in New Zealand. For more information, click here.
