twentytwentyone is 20

twentytwentyone was founded in 1996, making 2016 its 20th anniversary year.

We are marking this milestone with a series of monthly features and events – both in-store and online – recalling the people, designs and occasions that have been formative in our development.

In January, we launched our anniversary year with an edit of 20 favourite furniture designs launched over the past two decades. For February, we present an edit of most missed vintage designs sold since 1996.

This look back over some of the exceptional designs we have sold includes rare and highly sought-after furniture and lighting by the twentieth century’s greatest designers, including Alvar Aalto, Robin Day, Charles and Ray Eames, Geoffrey Harcourt, Arne Jacobsen, Verner Panton and Gio Ponti – as well as some anonymous and attributed designs.

Samsung Serif TV

February 20, 2016 · 0 Comments

twentytwentyone is one of a limited number of retailers showing Serif, the new television from Samsung designed by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec.

The Bouroullec brothers have radically reconfigured the flatscreen smart TV, creating a product that belongs as much to the world of design and furniture as it does to that of electronics.

The slimline unit flares at the top to create a narrow shelf and at the bottom to provide a sturdy base. Echoing typographic features, these projections give Serif its name.

“Like typographers designing a letter, we studied both the object and its interaction with the space around it,” say Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec.

Serif may be placed on a shelf or media unit or on a four-legged base that creates a free-standing unit.

A fabric panel magnetically attached to the back of the television allows for easy access, concealing ports and plugs while lending the set a clean and uncluttered profile from every angle.

Available in three sizes and in a range of colours, Serif is currently on display at twentytwentyone’s River Street showroom.

Hotaru lanterns at Barber&Osgerby's Guest of Honour stand, Stockholm Furniture&Light Fair 2016

Barber & Osgerby have been invited to create the Guest of Honour stand at this year’s Stockholm Furniture Fair.

The designers’ installation is divided by felt hangings into three separate ‘rooms’, illuminated throughout by the Hotaru paper lanterns launched by twentytwentyone in 2015.

“Each space offers the visitor an environment for relaxation, meeting and working under a canopy of paper lanterns,” said Barber & Osgerby.

Named after the Japanese word for firefly, the Hotaru range of lighting was launched by twentytwentyone as part of the 2015 London Design Festival.

The collection is manufactured using traditional techniques and materials by Ozeki & Co Ltd, the celebrated Japanese company dedicated to making paper lanterns since 1891.

Also displayed at the Guest of Honour stand is Barber & Osgerby’s Pilot chair, an innovative and adaptable lounge chair suited to both the home and the workplace.
