This year marked the highly anticipated launch of Toku, designed and presented by Gavin Harris to the A&D community. Across both days, Gavin Harris shared his inspiration behind the new collection and his design process.

Adele Bates and Schiavello came together to present the MR Chair. With a focus on modern simplicity and a refined geometric form, Adele Bates took inspiration from the MR Chair and designed the Schiavello stand that speaks to the chairs design itself.  The intent was to reflect products core ideals, and how it’s contemporary aesthetic is approachable and reflective of the human scale.  Elements of colour within the stand is a response to the colour palette of the chairs finishes – multifaceted and wide-ranging – and a rendered textural finish is used in response to the visually tactile nature of the range.
