ClassiCon attended the international trade fair imm cologne this year and was present with many new products in their booth to showcase to a larger audience. Eileen Gray’s Centimetre Rug is one of the new products. In addition, were also present the dining table of the Pli Table series, the Lantern Light by the architects neri&hu and the height-adjustable Sax Side Table.
Centimetre Rug by Eileen Gray
Eileen Gray created not only some of the most important furniture classics of the 20th century but also had her own studio where rugs were produced according to her designs.
Designed in 1926 for the Salon of the Villa E1027, the Centimetre Rug highlights the number 10 with a mysterious code – a nod to the tenth letter of the alphabet: J for her partner Jean Badovici, with whom she designed the Villa Maison au Bord de Mer E1027.
The Centimetre Rug is authorised by The World Licence Holder Aram Designs Ltd., London.
Pli Table series by Victoria Wilmotte
With the Pli Table series, French designer Victoria Wilmotte brings objects of unusual crystalline elegance and astonishing geometry to living environments. In the entrée, galleries and stores, the table can also be used as a spectacular eye-catcher.
Lantern Light by Neri Lyndon and Rossana Hu
neri&hu say: “Vico Magistretti designed a light in 1977 called Lyndon based on the idea of a structure holding a simple ball of light. The delicate glass bowl sets a contrast to the minimalist approach to its base pursuing the idea of being read as a cloud. To commemorate the tenth year of his death, we selected the Lyndon light to pay homage to the designer and created a light in the same spirit.”
The Lantern Light is available as a floor lamp in two different heights (tall and medium), and as a table lamp.
Sax Side Table by Christoph Böninger
Sax is a constructivist masterpiece. Its patented mechanism reveals completely new aspects in the concept of the height-adjustable table. A small turn of the hand changes Sax from a low side table into a high serving trolley and vice versa.
With its variably adjustable table height and rollers Sax is a practical companion with many possible uses.
