Bag of all things
Fendi’s wide range of men’s leather goods this season features illustrations of everyday objects by Sue Tilley. The pop and ironic attitude of Tilley’s works meet the refined Selleria Cuoio Romano leather on statement pieces, all available in a classic colour palette of black, blue, grey and brown.
History repeats itself
The new Historiques from Vacheron Constantin are a contemporary take on two iconic calendar watches from the 1940s—one is steel triple calendar timepiece, and another an 18 carat pink gold triple calendar with moon phase. The 40-mm diameter case features a number of features typical of the era, such as the triple-gadroon caseband bearing claw-type lugs.
Get comfy at work
Hosu Lounge Seating from Steelcase is designed by Patricia Urquiola. It is a unique work lounge that creates a comforting personal space in which one can relax as well as work. The single seat lounge can be ordered with a convertible chaise foldout. The two-seat sofa allows two people to be seated, even while focussed on different tasks. Hosu features convenient rear and side storage pockets and cord pass-through. Its unique textured fabric is available in six colours.
Found furniture
Milan-based designer Ilaria Bianchi uses a multidisciplinary approach, and moulds artisanal and technical techniques with an analytical and critical perspective. Sustainability and material experimentation are central to her research process. As part of the CastAway project, Bianchi has created furniture by combining and reconceptualising industrial and urban waste. Pictured here is a coffee table on wheels.
