A puzzle with more than one solution.
Together with design studio Yonoh, Sancal presents a unique program of occasional tables and seating solutions. Clara and Alex are both from Valencia, a Spanish city renowned for its ceramic tiles, so it seems only fitting that this provided the inspiration for the piece.
Mosaico is a puzzle that can be used to solve a range of different spatial constraints. The bases are made of ash and are available in five measurements upon which marble or wooden tops can be fitted as well as upholstered seat cushions. The optional backs enable the pieces to be transformed into mini-sofas.
The hexagonal piece enables, amongst other possibilities, the creation of compositions that make closed loops. The corner angle adds an element of sinuosity to the design with its curved side.Share on Facebook
Designed by Mariví Calvo, Koi is a huge carp made of light and wood, a spectacular light structure, half-lamp, half-sculpture.
The inspiration for this wonderful idea came from an interlacing wood system and the transparencies it produced when lit. The system, consisting in the overlaying of wooden slats as if they were fish scales, is called the “Koi Fabric”, and was used for making iluminated walls.
The result is a stunning handcrafted piece measuring more than three metres from head to tail. Koi consists of a wooden frame, constructed using traditional Valencian carpentry techniques, which supports the skin made of dozens of small wood veneer pieces.

Balans is a beautiful little table. ‘Balans complements the Artifort collection perfectly,’ says designer Khodi Feiz. ‘Balans has a design aesthetic that explores different colours, materials and finishes. You can use Balans as a stand-alone coffee table or to create a colourful collection of tables in your living room, which is an interesting alternative to using a bigger table. Balans will also look great in your bedroom as a classic side table for your bedside reading lamp.’

Stefan Diez turns Yard into a complete sun loving family for Emu.
Think of “la dolce vita” and the American lifestyle. Sun, sand and sea breezes or the pool and a Mojito on the patio close by.
In the design of “Yard”, Stefan Diez has achieved a type of cultural synthesis for the leading Italian outdoor furniture manufacturer, Emu. Yard chairs and tables are as suitable outside an Italian gelataria as on the patio at home or a Miami hotel terrace. The sun lounger and side tables you invariably imagine by a rooftop hotel pool in LA. The Yard bar stool could fit any beach bar from Spain to the Caribbean.
In short: Here, the Italian “dolce vita” and the American lifestyle leisurely bond with Stefan Diez’s Bavarian thoroughness and perfection. Of course all Yard models are made of an ultra-light, powder-coated aluminium frame with the seats traversed with broad elastic bands, rendering cushions quite unnecessary. Naturally all models come in marvellously flowing lines and those unique Miami colours.
iSaloni Milano in April 2015 saw the addition of sun loungers, extension tables, a bar table and bar stools to the Yard collection.
The Yard seating is made from an ultra lightweight powder coated aluminium frame, with a seat and back made from elastic straps, guaranteeing extraordinary comfort and abandoning the need of additional cushions. These straps are inserted into the tubular frame using a technical solution developed and patented together with Emu, which allows the seat to form a natural unit with the frame.
The Yard collection is completed by several fixed and extendable tables producing a furnishing system that satisfies the requirements of indoor as well as outdoor use in residential and contract applications.
Yard is now in stock and on the KE-ZU showroom floor. Stop by and experience the comfort of Yard for yourself.

This new creation by Rafa García is tremendously versatile, and can be used for a variety of diverse projects that require pieces for resting, eating or working.
Rest. An entire family of chairs, sofas and modules, as light as they are comfortable, can be used with two different types of arm: one is high and thin like the back and the other is low and soft, like the base of the design.
Eat. The “nutritious” part corresponds to an ample number of benches which can be used with a dining table. The benches can be used alone, or together with upholstered wall pieces. The benches are available in two depths (57 and 72cm). The least deep is the archetypal dining bench, providing a firm, upright sitting position. Moreover, the finish of the arms in a corner permits compositions with angles to be made. The deeper version is ideal to fill with scatter cushions and create an informal environment, perfect for long postprandial conversations. Rafa’s piece provides two back heights, 95 and 115cm. The low back creates a light design, while the higher back provides some privacy.
Work. The productivity at work is directly related to our concentration and feeling of wellbeing. These versions of the sofas, modules, and chairs enable a certain degree of privacy in an office setting, or the hall of a hotel. Rafa has also designed a bench and a couple of cushions to complete the programme.
The feet are available in steel lacquered black, or ash, which can be stained to any of the colours in the Sancal collection.
