April 25, 2018 · 0 Comments

Maruni Collection 2018Maruni Wood Industry has launched two new chairs as part of the Maruni Collection 2018 at the Salone del Mobile, Milan.

twentytwentyone are very pleased to soon be displaying the Roundish Armchair designed by Naoto Fukasawa and the Fugu Chair by Jasper Morrison at our River Street showroom.

The Roundish armchair designed by Naoto Fukusawa (above) is made from a single piece of laminated plywood, twisted and bent in three dimensions to create the backrest, arms and seat. The unified shape gently embraces the person sitting.

The Fugu chair designed by Jasper Morrison (above) is made of solid wood and utilises Maruni’s renowned cutting technology to create the finely curved surfaces. An armchair version is also available.

Maruni 90th anniversary limited edition chairsIn addition to the new collection, to commemorate Maruni’s 90th anniversary, a special Hiroshima chair and T&O chair (above) will be released in a limited edition of 90 worldwide.

Established in 1928, Maruni set about achieving industrial mass-production while retaining the quality of the craftsmanship so prevalent in their heritage. This attention to detail can be seen in their designs, striving to create robust pieces of furniture that will still feel fresh and vital in the future.

To celebrate the arrival of Spring, Irish design studio Superfolk will be offering a printmaking demonstration at our Upper Street shop on Saturday 24th March 11am – 1pm.

This is an exceptional opportunity to view the process by which Superfolk’s delicate, textured works of art are created using only water-based inks, a hand-carved block and Japanese washi paper.

Jo Anne Butler of Superfolk will be hand-inking and block-printing Superfolk’s Dandelion print. Combining fresh foliage with citrus-bright colour, this Spring-themed image will be available to purchase on the day, alongside other Superfolk prints inspired by the seaweed and plant life of the Irish coast.

Superfolk’s range of beautifully pared-back homewares are inspired by outdoor living and are crafted using the finest natural materials and time-honoured techniques. Their work evokes the changing in colours and seasons of the weather, wildlife, and surrounding landscape.

Visit our Upper Street shop to see the pair in action as they mix inks and make prints from their hand-carved blocks. The inks are pushed and pulled, drawing out gentle variations in hues, meaning that no two prints will ever be exactly the same.

Minimalux design and produce accessories for the home and person, characterised by a formal minimalism, employing premium materials and lustrous finishes.

As the name suggests, Minimalux fully embraces precision crafting. Their range may be diverse but each piece is united in its distinctive high-quality finish and elegant simplicity.

Bare metals and leather are hand-finished and polished to an exceptional level. No lacquers or treatments are applied after this polishing process, ensuring that the quality of the material is preserved and allows for the attractive natural ageing process.

Their design process is quality-driven, aiming to create understated pieces which are designed to last and bring a note of discernment to everyday objects. The collection ranges from small jewellery pieces and desk accessories to much larger statement lighting.

Minimalux Stem and Bulb Table Lamp

The Stem Light (above right) comprises a hand-blown spherical diffuser on a columnar base, available in either brass or chrome. A circular opening in the shade allows for directional light if required.

The Bulb Table Lamp (above left) sits well in tandem. Inspired by the traditional bulb form, this design has a machined brass base and sits directly on a surface.

Minimalux Pocket Mirror lifestyle

Minimalux Square Ring lifestyle

Minimalux create a range of jewellery, from rings to pendants and bracelets. The Square ring (above) is made of solid brass with a mirror polished finish, engraved with the discreet Minimalux monogram on the inner face. It perfectly pairs with Minimalux’s Square pendant, for maximum geometric effect.

We are pleased to introduce Minimalux to the twentytwentyone family. The collection is available to view and purchase at our Upper Street shop and online.
