Award-winning, Mexico City-based industrial designer, Victor M. Aleman, focuses on aligning the bond between complex digital design and skilled Mexican craftsmanship. Indicative of this creative output from his self-founded Victor Aleman/Estudio is Loopita; a continuous seating curve for two, handcrafted from conserved start to surface finish. Master joinery and force of compression bind the sections together, leaving you with a strikingly singular indoor/outdoor seating unit.

South Korean product designer, Giha Woo, is rather adept at re-interpreting the necessitous relationship between objects, and his Hidden Light chair is a fine example of this purist application of the discipline. A simple chair frame that can be manipulated to reveal the hidden overhead light embedded within is a wonderfully structural response to the merging of multiple functionality.

By Jean-Marie Massaud for Glas Italia, the I-Beam collection comprises companion pieces consisting of a low bench, table and chaise longue structured by high-resistance glue and thick, tempered glass. Extending Studio Massaud’s reach into promoting the relationship between design and brand development, I-Beam’s complimentary smoked glass elements prove this material can be as functional as it is visual. Black fabric removable cushions soften the seating formations.
