MACMAMAU is an Italian brand which designs furnishing elements of high quality in small precious series. We recently received a press release from the studio introducing us with their newest creations, described by the developers as “authentic products characterized by a strong tie with traditional cabinetmaking and by constructive methods inspired from the the world of art”. Ilaria and Sara Patriarca, architect and illustrator, have given birth to Macmamau, an exclusive project with a strong Italian heritage.
Mechanical engraving, hand painting, lacquer and assemblage of the components are entrusted to specialized workers who combine the latest techniques with those of traditional cabinetmaking with mastery and knowledge. The graphic play of the incisions on the surface, made three-dimensional by precise cutting, and the tireless mechanical pencil are joined by a research of chromatic hues and shapes. The balance between simplicity and structure and the attention given to detail, give the furnishing elements their uniqueness. [Photos and information provided via e-mail by MACMAMAU]
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’.
Affable and loyal, Vitsœ has a long-term commitment to enabling more people to live better, with less, that lasts longer. It is a modest way of thinking that values the consumer as an individual. The classic and iconic 606 Universal Shelving System was designed by Dieter Rams in 1960 and has been made by Vitsœ ever since. With its clean industrial aesthetic, flexibility and versatility, the 606 is a lifetime companion. The Royal System, designed by Poul Cadovius in 1948, is handsome, simple and practical. Much admired in the 1950s and 60s, dk3 acquired the rights to revive and reintroduce this Danish classic, doing so in 2010. The Royal System®, one of the first wall-hung furniture systems, is available in materials such as walnut, oak and compact laminate with steel.
