July 05, 2021
Home to some of the world’s most iconic furniture brands, Chanintr Craft features the works of legendary designers by the likes of Hans J. Wegner, Børge Mogensen, Jasper Morrison and many more. Through considerations toward use and pure artistry, every piece aims to serve its functional purpose while cultivating the appreciation for simple living. Here, we’ve picked out some of the best works that exemplify the definition of refined designs.
Spanish Chair by Fredericia
As the name implies, the renowned Danish designer Børge Mogensen takes on the Spanish’s traditional furniture-making method which involves the use of sturdy leather while preserving the Danish design principles of simplicity, functionality and enduring aesthetics. Adding to the design’s longevity, the saddle leather seat and backrest are made with adjustable straps to counteract leather’s natural habit of stretching over time. For this reason, the Spanish Chair is made to be enjoyed by one generation to the next. See product details here.
Drape Desk 777 by De La Espada
Designed by neri&hu, the sleek and stylish Drape Desk illustrates how the table surface seamlessly falls over each side of the table covering the desk frame just like a “drape”. Its clean lines, ‘naked’ leather surface and concealed cable management – altogether offers a visual sense of continuity for a minimal workspace. See product details here.
Yuh Lamp by Louis Poulsen
The Yuh collection by GamFratesi for Danish lighting brand Louis Poulsen features a wall lamp, floor lamp and table lamp that took the inspiration from Arne Jacobsen’s AJ Lamp design in 1957. The Yuh lamps – with a phonetic pronunciation of the word ‘you’ – aims to focus on a personalized experience and ease of use, with the glare-free shades that can be adjusted effortlessly to allow optimal light distribution for each user. The Yuh collection fits nicely into Louis Poulsen’s design heritage while embracing the latest LED technology of the present. See product details here.
Ippongi Table by Conde House
Made with trees that have lived for more than a hundred years, the Ippongi Table proves to the world how a single piece of log can be exquisitely handcrafted into a beautiful and inviting dining table. In order to proudly exhibit its source, the table follows the shape of the tree trunk it came from as well as preserving the natural cracks and holes that were developed under severe conditions. What’s left is a strong character that is well-expressed in every piece of wood – making each Ippongi Table truly unique in its kind.
Spindle Bed by Ethnicraft
The Spindle Bed combines masterfully the long and vertically-aligned spokes – drawn from its inspiration of a traditional spinning wheel – into the headboard. The mattress frame is supported by slightly tapered legs with round edges that add an overall soft and relaxing visual to the bedroom.
Jabara Sideboard by Ritzwell
Sleek and modern with some touches of classic elegance, the Jabara sideboard is defined by its sliding tambour door – also known as the ‘Jabara’ door – which takes the appearance of fine vertical straight lines particularly known to Japan’s townhouses and the bamboo forests in Sagano, Kyoto. With its unique wooden shades of the sliding doors and the thick leather used for the front panel of drawers, the sideboard induces a feeling of heartwarming comfort to the home.
E015 Embrace Lounge Chair by Carl Hansen & Søn
With superior comfort in mind, EOOS designed the Embrace Lounge Chair with three-pieces wooden structure – each functions as a seat, curved back and armrest that are continuously visible from all angles. To extend the relaxing experience even further, the soft padded cushions can be folded in three dimensions which allow the chair to envelop and ‘embrace’ the person sitting in it.
Teddy Lounge Chair by Sika Design
In attempting to celebrate Danish Golden Age of design in the 1930-40s, the Danish rattan brand Sika Design reproduces Viggo Boesen’s iconic funkis style lounge chair entirely from sustainable Indonesian rattan. With a curving backseat and large organic armrests, Teddy Lounge Chair lives up to Danish’s reputation of furniture-making: to offer both functionality and aesthetics – making it the perfect invitation to sit and lounge.
JWDA Table Lamp by MENU
Simple, elegant and compact, the JWDA Table Lamp is a sculptural piece that brings a soft illumination to any room. The lamp is completed with round opal glass shade and a concrete and brass base that when put together, offers the perfect balance between sturdy and delicacy to the design. Modernizing the shape of traditional oil lamps, this luminaire instantly becomes a classic piece for the nightstand of any interior style.
T&O Collection by Maruni
With authentic and robust materials come versatile pieces for any living or workspace. Designed by the famous British designer Jasper Morrison, the T&O collection features a series of 3D-machined solid wood chairs, stools and tables – all of which are complemented by painted steel stems to add a fresh contrast to the design’s natural wooden elements. Each element’s dimension is kept to the minimum so the pieces appear thin and light yet provide durability and maximum comfort.
