For the contract brand Leolux LX, German designer Martin Ballendat has created a new armchair, specially developed for contemporary interiors in the office and hospitality sectors. Valuable ergonomic properties in an everlasting aesthetic form. The seat shell of the LXR18 is visually divided into two parts. The separate backrest and seat are underlined by piping. The play of colours can be individually matched to the room in which the multifunctional armchair is used: in groups of the same or contrasting colours, with a choice of all the single-colour fabrics in the LX collection. The compact oak tabletop can be placed on the left or right, as desired, and runs across the seat.
In 2016, Carpet Concept joined the Ege Group. In 2021, the merger will result in the new Ege Carpets. Time for new steps – such as updating the product portfolio of both brands. A large part of the collection will remain, partly under a new name. For example, SLO from Carpet Concept will in future be part of the ReForm family, which is characteristic of Ege Carpets. The beginning of the transformation process is marked by SLO 150 + 151, which are now available as ReForm Construction in the familiar form. SLO 152 – and all its colour diversity – transforms fittingly into ReForm Radiant.
With multi-dimensional patterns IRON and CONCRETE, ReForm Construction is a gentle interpretation of contemporary building materials. Refined, the collection picks up on the industrial and rather cool aspects of concrete and iron, at the same time adding the highest comfort as well as improved acoustics to them. ReForm Radiant is inspired by the ever-changing mood of the sun's reflections on shiny surfaces and reflects this in a dynamic carpet design with a basic linear pattern.
Pode expands its collection with three new products – a sofa, an armchair and a side table series – and welcomes new faces to its design roster: Both Milanese Federica Biasi and Dutch studio Raw Colors presented a design for the young lifestyle brand for the first time in September 2021. The product novelties celebrated their premiere at the traditional autumn shows of Pode in Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands.
The new Marv sofa, designed by Roderick Vos, consists of one piece and is an expressive object with clear lines – the Pode art director deliberately renounced with all dispensable details. Marv is defined by its "organic cubist form". The Chap armchair (design: Federica Biasi) also relies on pleasantly soft forms, with an all-round steel frame contrasting the inviting curves. The Mesh table series (design: Raw Colors) is light on its feet – a perforated grid forms the basis of the tables and plays with the interplay of open and closed areas.
With its new Archive Collection, Mylands expands its rich colour palette with twelve new shades. The new collection tells stories from the company's past. They are extracts from the rich archive of tailor-made colours, customised for each client and project. Selected with care and love for the company's history, they are testimonies to decades of experience in colour development, the expertise at Mylands. Now, as part of the Archive Collection, the colours unfold their appeal in modern interiors - strong in combination in their neutral tones, confident and full of character in their bold colours.
In recent years, Nina Ruthe and David Antonin from Design Studio Niruk have researched porcelain, approaching it with a great deal of sensitivity and patience in collaboration with traditional manufacturing partners. Three products were created that will celebrate their premiere this autumn. Varying in form and function, they demonstrate the manifold applications of this material: In the form of a door handle for the Italian manufacturer Olivari as well as a teapot warmer and a reedition of the legendary animal collection 'Funnies' for the traditional manufacturer KOBER Porzellan. Whilst sharing similar manufacturing processes and the classic white appearance, in terms of application, the resulting products are very varied.

With its new Washi collection Illusion by porcelain designer Stefanie Hering, Wood & Washi shows the result of a high-class collaboration. A collection that emerged from the work on the latest design of the porcelain manufactory Hering Berlin. Here, the designer transfers the image of a perforated pattern onto porcelain using a screen-printing process. The result is a natural and lively colour gradient created by the interaction of the materials, graphically interrupted by accurately placed dots.
A fascinating interplay of randomly created colouring and precisely defined pattern. Wood & Washi transfers this image to high-quality Japanese Washi in its new collection and adds the variable of daylight to the graphic design by Stefanie Hering.
