20. Arconas’ Morelli bench provides a comfortable waiting experience and raises the value of outdoor public spaces. Recognizing
the need for urban furniture that is elegant, functional, and durable,
this sophisticated bench features solid aluminum cast legs and
supports either perforated steel planks or ipe wood slats. These
perforations are visually appealing and a purposeful design choice
that reduces the heat of the seat.
21. Heirloom from Mannington Commercial was inspired by
a Czechoslovakian wedding dress worn by the designer’s great-grandmother. Elements from the garment are referenced in the
design and appearance such as brightly colored embroidery,
pleating, and hand-sewn details. Designers can create a customized
flooring pattern by mixing and matching the collection’s modular tiles.
22. Manta is a modular partition wall developed for workspaces
and common areas. Available from Koleksiyon, the design is
composed of fin-shaped rectangular plates that rotate easily on
an axis, creating different effects in semi-open or fully closed
configurations. The screen can adapt to the needs of any situation
at hand, whether for privacy or collaboration.
