This spring, Karimoku New Standard introduces a number of striking new releases by designers Christian Haas, Moritz Schlatter and GECKELER MICHELS. The elegant Elephant series by designer Christan Haas is extended, the Spectrum Workstation by German design studio GECKELER MICHELS is introduced in new dimensions as well as with a single table top version and additionally, KNS debuts the new Polar Lounge Chair by Moritz Schlatter.
The Elephant collection by Christian Haas:
Elephant Side Table
The new Elephant Side Table is an addition to the Elephant series and adopts the same elaborate design language. The asymmetrical leg allows the table to be pulled over the seat with ease, allowing for convenient access. The table can also accommodate a laptop, making it an elegant and functional companion for living rooms, office spaces and lobbies.
Also new in the simple, elegant and versatile Elephant series is the Elephant Pouf. Designed to function in both public and private spaces, its soft form suggests timeless comfort and coziness. KNS introduces two versions of the pouf: one with a lower seat height for lounge situations; and one with a regular seat height and built-in casters that allow it to be moved with ease.
The Polar Lounge Chair & L by Moritz Schlatter
The Japanese brand introduces a new versatile lounge chair by Swiss designer Moritz Schlatter. The design language of the Polar Lounge Chair is based on clear, round and soft shapes, balanced with straight lines and geometric elements. This contrast gives the new lounge chair its characteristic, gentle appearance and strong aesthetic expression.
KNS presents the Polar Lounge Chair prototype in two versions: A lower, larger version with an optional wooden side table suitable for relaxed, casual seating and a higher, compact version with optional wooden armrests suitable for seating at a coffee table. Both versions are designed for contract applications and to fit in various settings in private and public spaces, from lobbies to cafes, from work spaces to living rooms.
With the new Spectrum ST meeting table KNS introduces a single tabletop version of the Spectrum Workstation in two sizes. Spectrum is designed for flexible contemporary working environments. A simple and smart cable system with a large, easy to access cable tunnel allows quick installation of electronic devices. The table is made from sustainably sourced Japanese oak wood. The Spectrum ST meeting table is a prototype that will be part of the Spectrum table system, which will include versions from desk to dining to meeting tables and high-tables in customisable sizes.
