Villa Harnischmacher II
An iconic Bauhaus villa in Wiesbaden’s city centre by Marcel Breuer in 1954 sets the ideal stage for the tubular steel furniture that he designed in the late 1920s for the Frankenberg-based company.
These classic Breuer designs are supported by a sympathetic cast of contemporary designs from the Thonet portfolio. The bungalow is Breuer’s only existing example of a residential home in Germany and is considered an outstanding work of modern architecture. The clear, open and simple design of the Thonet furniture harmoniously merges with the elegantly discreet and highly functional layout of the house.

Herman Miller Furniture
Starting in October, Herman Miller will offer a special limited run interpretation of its classic Eames Wire Base Low Tables (Eames LTR) in three colors that pay homage to Ray Eames on the 100th anniversary of her birth. Although it is difficult to distinguish the individual contributions of a creative duo such as Charles and Ray Eames, Ray clearly brought a gift for color. Herman Miller has chosen three bold colors for this years Select Edition program that were Ray’s favorites and used on the exterior panels of Case Study House #8, which she and Charles designed. The tables will be sold through the Spring of 2013, and then cease to be produced, giving these tables added appeal to collectors.
Please note these tables will only be available in the US and are not being shipped out to other countries.

Contemporary Furniture News – Design Copyright

Information provided to e-architect:

The Government has recently announced a change in the Law for Design Copyright from 25 years of first production to 70 years from the death of the Author.

This means designs already out of copyright for 30 years will be given back protection.

The largest sector affected with be the Furniture industry where iconic pieces of furniture now affordable through reproductions will no longer be available.

we believe the law perhaps should be changed from the day it is passed to all designs going forwards or from 1988 (covering items just reaching 25 years).

However, it should NOT be applied to anything that precedes this date as the protection has already long run out.

Giving back this protection will damage legitimate business leaving thousands out of work in the UK and gives a monopoly to the handful of companies who are allowed to buy licenses to sell these designs at inflated prices.

Archetto Firenze
Presenting a solution for communal seating which is adaptable on many levels, the Archetto was initially designed for the Buyer’s Club at the 2011 Pitti Uomo, a large fashion trade fair held in Florence, Italy. The brief was to make the best use of a small temporary space, to give substance and luxury to what could otherwise be boring and nondescript.

Genesy lamp for Artemide

The lamp’s structure increases in complexity as it rises from the floor. Like a growing organism, the central support sprouts branches that adopt a greater radial geometry to enhance the dynamic tensional forces of the structure. Nature continues to inform the design as these branches frame voids, enhancing the contrast between positive and negative, convex and concave, tension and compression.

“The architectural approach to furniture is different from that of the industrial designer as the architect begins with the space and the environment that the chair will become a part of. All the details of the chair are considered for their spatial effects. This architectural approach to furniture is connected with a very personal ideology of space.” – Ben van Berkel

Morris Lapidus Furniture Collection
Collection marks first time ever Morris Lapidus furniture put into production:
Furniture by Morris Lapidus Architect
Morris Lapidus’ signature forms—termed derisively by critics and then positively appropriated by Morris Lapidus himself—amoeba-like shapes or “woggles”, cutouts or “cheese holes”, and sweeping curves, are derived from his fascination with the human form.
