Tapio Wirkkala centenary

March 6, 2015 · 0 Comments

WIRKKALA_BLOG_02 To celebrate the 100th birthday of Tapio Wirkkala, Iittala have re-released the designer’s mouth-blown glass bottle vases. Originally in production between 1959 and 1968, the bottle returns to Iittala’s range in a limited edition numbered series. Available during 2015 only, the bottles will bear a centenary engraving and number from 1 to 2015.

WIRKKALA_blog_03Born in Hanko Finland, Wirkkala (1915-1985) garnered a reputation as a versatile designer of graphic arts and notably glassware. Wirkkala’s work includes the Thule highball. Inspired by melting ice, the instantly recognisable textured glass was created in 1960 and remains a classic example of Finnish glassware design.

WIRKKALA_BLOGDuring production, the Wirkkala bottle vase is blown into a mould and finished with a simple ring of glass around its neck. The simple form makes for a pretty object or a useful carafe or vase. Available in turquoise, grey and moss green, the limited edition vase is now available at twentytwentyone.

140 years of Kingston School of Art

Kingston_04
2015 marks 140 years of Kingston School of Art. The institution can be credited with many significant alumni including Archibold Knox, Gavin Turk, Jasper Morrison and William Plunkett.

Charting key events in the art school’s history as well as the varied disciplines and practices taught including fine art, architecture, interior and furniture design, the curated exhibition features over 150 art and design works loaned from museums and private collections. Included in the showcase is the licensed production of William Plunkett’s Kingston chair, on loan from twentytwentyone.

Kingston_02
The Kingston range, launched in 1967, was conceived as a family of seating designs sharing common components. Both modular in appearance and in manufacture, the collection offered great flexibility to both domestic and commercial interiors.

William Plunkett supplied Kingston to several important interiors projects, including the QE2. It was used Russell and Bromley shoes stores across the UK and exhibited at the Design Centre in Mayfair. The current production includes sofa, chair and daybed/bench. William Plunkett also designed the celebrated, minimal Reigate rocking chair; a design held in the V&A permanent collection.

Vitra Spring promotion

March 4, 2015 · 0 Comments

Tipton_newsThe Vitra Spring promotion is here. From 1st March 2015 – 31st July 2015 receive a complimentary Jasper Morrison Rotary tray with your Tip Ton outdoor chair order.

Barber & Osgerby’s Tip Ton outdoor chair gets it’s name from the two sitting positions achieved by simply tilting forward or back when seated. The forward-tilt action, until now the preserve of mechanical office chairs, straightens the back and improves circulation. Tip Ton is made of polypropylene and is manufactured from a single mould without the use of mechanical components. This makes Barber & Osberby’s contemporary design extremely durable and ideal for outdoor environments. All colours in the Tip Ton outdoor chair range are UV-resistant, protecting it’s colour from sun damage.

RotarytrayJasper Morrison’s Rotary tray is a contemporary rendering of the classic etagere by Jasper Morrison. Thanks to its simple shape and subtle colours, the Rotary Tray complements any interior style and lends itself to many different uses. Whether in the kitchen or on the dining room table, in a bathroom or entryway, at the office or in a child’s room; Jasper Morrison’s Rotary Tray offers a decorative way to tidy up any space.
