Here is a modern furniture collection that will surely appeal to those of you hooked on automobiles. In order to keep their customers happy outside their cars also, Mercedes-Benz recently launched a series of indoor items, in collaboration with the Formitalia Luxury Group. Featuring a chaise lounge, elegant chairs, a dining room table, a shelf for a home theater system, drawers and a bed design, the new collection will make it easy for Mercedes enthusiasts to add an original touch to their homes: “The various pieces of furniture reflect the progressive, dynamic design idiom of our current show cars and concept vehicles, offering an exclusive, emotional experience outside our vehicles as well”, stated Gorden Wagener, the Head of Mercedes-Benz design. This new line was uncovered at Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan and, according to blog.gessato, all items are subtly branded with the company’s logo. How do you appreciate the designs below?
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.
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’.
