Kreten Side Table
Souda

Industrial, organic, and sculptural, each of these side tables is completely unique. Original pieces designed by Isaac Friedman-Heiman are created in Souda’s Brooklyn studio by casting concrete into a spandex mold. This unique material combination delivers forms with naturally occurring air bubbles and color variations. The side tables are suitable for indoor and outdoor use.

Hi-Lo Shelving
Moving Mountains

Equally sculptural and functional, this shelving unit is comprised of common plywood, fractured marble, and bright blue paint. The juxtaposition of high and low materials underline the stepped form, creating a graphic play between textures and color.

Chaise

Cleverly nicknamed “the long chair,” the Chaise exposes the strength of two materials: steel and leather. The design is afforded by rolled sheet metal that sustains the weight of the resting area on top of the seemingly floating plane.

Sylva Daybed

Wood grain and textured fabric come together in this six-legged daybed. The white-oak base is composed of a rounded-edge frame and distinctive hand-shaped legs, which taper on two sides. The sumptuous cushion is crafted with subtle tufting and meticulous seaming.

CAN 1
HAY

Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec designed CAN 1 to go beyond practicality and comfort to reinvigorate the entire idea of the sofa. Reinterpreted as something relaxed and accessible, it comes flat-packed and can be easily assembled at home from three basic elements: frame, cover, and cushions.

Slip Chair

Made of matte Horween leather, wenge wood, and waved cord, this chair is elegantly assembled by inserting the wooden seat and legs into the seat back. The backside reveals the cord stitching that holds the tanned seatback taught.
