Founded in 1954, the internationally recognized Red Dot Award seeks to honour excellence in design.
The contemporary furniture series with its sleek rectilinear form, manufactured by Punt, combines wood with aluminium; both dark and light wood finishes are offered, accented with a choice of anodised aluminium sheet tops.
Mario Ruiz was born in 1965 and studied Industrial Design at The Elisara School of Design in Barcelona. Soon after graduating in 1995, Ruiz began a professional career in design. The award winning multidisciplinary designer has since worked across furniture, lighting and product design projects for clients including Punt.
Founded in 1980, Spanish firm Punt, also known as Puntmobles, produce designer furniture for both home and contract use. As well as Mario Ruiz’s Red dot award winning Stockholm sideboard, notable Punt designs include Terence Woodgate’s Sussex sideboard and Dot cabinet, and Odosdesign’s Mai Tai table.
The Y-chair or ‘the Wishbone chair’ as it is often called – due to the shape of the back – is a lightweight chair, and despite being an armchair, remains a relatively small piece of furniture. The curved hind legs and semicircular top come together to form the elegant Y-back, giving a gracious and welcoming air.
Opened in 1908, Carl Hansen’s workshop initially produced hand-crafted bespoke furniture and soon became known for the high quality of his work. Over time, the company began to manufacture smaller runs of their most popular pieces, still employing the same high standards and traditional woodworking techniques which put them on the map. These values remain at the core of the firm to this day.
The companies collaboration with Hans Wegner began in the 1940s, when Carl Hansen’s son, Holger Hansen saw promise in the the ground-breaking designs of the young designer. Hans Wegner’s Wishbone chair has been in production ever since.

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.
Born 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.
During 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.
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.
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.

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.
