51_KE-ZU_ENEA_LOTTUS WOOD_LIEVORE_ALTHERR_MOLINA

LOTTUS designed by Lievore, Altherr and Molina for Enea.

The Lievore, Altherr & Molina designed LOTTUS collection has expanded yet again. The already versatile and wonderfully practical program of stools tables and chairs is now offered in timber as well as upholstered and in polypropylene.

The smart aesthetic of the signature LOTTUS shell in timber sat atop four, sled, swivel or splayed leg base in timber or metal is unrivalled.

Alternately, upholstered or polyprop seats in any colour can be paired with timber stained legs – affording you ultimate control in the appearance of your LOTTUS installation.

The versatility of LOTTUS as a chair program is what affords it such flexibility with this timber addition confirming the collections place as the preeminent contemporary contract and residential seating choice.

LOTTUS is more than merely a chair with options, it is a verstile and vibrant program of seats and stools that allows you to call the shots.

Nest …

50_KE-ZU_NEST_ARTIFORT_PIERRE PAULIN

Nest Chair and Sofa designed by Pierre Paulin for Artifort.

Artifort is proud of its history, which is why they are bringing back Pierre Paulin’s F564 and C565 in 2014. They have called them ‘Nest’. It is a well-loved design from a previous Artifort collection, with beautiful flowing lines and offering great sitting comfort. It is a little retro and very charming, soft, and friendly.

The armchair is ideal for times when you want to curl up on your own with a book or a tablet computer, while the compact two-seater sofa is perfect for cosy lounging with your other half. Both are fully upholstered, yet they look elegant because of the narrow base.

FFF – Zoom! Air Driving! …

We loved the images in our post about Jacob Munkhammer’s flying Citroën cars so much we had to widen the field and show the French artist Renaud Marion’s superb series titled Air Drive.

Marion snaps the perfect blend of architecture + automobile, carefully extracting the wheels from the classics to make them appear airborne. Touted as “retro-futuristic” (which we love!) these vintage hovercrafts seem so carefree!  Well, perhaps aside from the Mercedes below, the owner of which may have to attempt to rid themselves of a questionable parking ticket.

The challenge for you here is, can you name all of the cars?

Conch …

49_KE-ZU_CONCH_HIVE

Conch Floor Lamp designed by Luisa Robinson for Hive.

Highly reminiscent of the seashell’s ubiquitous swirl, the Conch collection blends traditional materials with contemporary silhouettes. Bamboo splits are woven together as repetitive lines forming a circular shade that appears to spin within itself. Masculine and feminine sensibilities come together in this whimsical set of lights.

Collar …

48_KE-ZU_SANCAL_SKIRVO_COLLAR

 

 

Designed by Skrivo, the inspiration for the initial concept was stimulated by the way a collar folds. This creates a more comfortable chair as well as adding a more distinct visual detail.

 

Collar combines technology and handcraft. The injection-moulded interior followed intense modelling. The upholstery is tailored just like a made to measure suit. Even the buttons are upholstered to match the seat cushion, underscoring the importance of every last detail.

 

Two versions are available: metal or wooden feet. The ash is available in any colour from our collection. The metal is available in textured epoxy: black, grey or brown.

Available from KE-ZU and through our national distribution network.

Nub …

45_KE-ZU_ANDREU WORLD_NUB_PATRICIA URQUIOLA

Nub Side Chair, designed by Patricia Urquiola is the latest addition to Andreu World’s “Nub’ collection, which is composed of an attractive line of sofas and chairs with natural wood structures that offer multiple color combinations for their structures and upholstery.

Nub is the result of a sophisticated cabinet-making process, updated with great care in a contemporary manner. The project’s essential element is not so much the cylindrical bars, but rather the pleasant widening of the bars in the backrest at the height of the lumbar region, an alternating rhythm that grants recognition to the project, offering materiality and a three-dimensional quality to the chair.

Available now from KE-ZU and our national distribution network!

The Calyx Collection from Kenneth Cobonpue is designed to blur the lines between indoor & outdoor living. Endlessly inspired by the simple yet ever changing lines of a bloom unfolding. The wide crown over a tightened base form the elegant silhouette for the Calyx from a matrix of interwoven strands.
