Pieces that grabbed our attention were, The Folded together, Maarten Baas’s chair looks like an attaché case that you carry to the sea rather than the office. Once on the sand, it becomes a singular chair from which to survey the ocean in perfect comfort. The frame is covered in Maarten Baas’ trademark hand-applied resin, which not only protects the chair but also makes each one unique. The chair structure is based on the iconic cotton strap that ensures safe packing in Louis Vuitton trunks and suitcases. It can be carried as a backpack, and the integrated storage bag is removable and the second piece is A contemporary vision of traditional Venetian lights, Marcel Wanders’ Lantern has a heart of beautifully blown glass, enclosed by leather straps and brass studs. The Lantern, which also recalls the quatrefoil in the House’s Monogram pattern, is a companion piece to Wanders’ Sofa & Chair, and Goccia Vase. The Lantern’s dimmable light reflecting in the magnifying glass-like bubbles of the glass brings it a solidity of radiance and shape.
