Barcelona-based designer Eugeni Quitllet’s ‘Tabu’ for Alias reinterprets the hand-crafted tradition of chair-making using digital fabrication, digitally carving and assembling FSC certified wood to create a series of contemporary chairs with various seat backs. There are five different versions/generations of ‘Tabu’, from full back rest to one that doubles as an occasional table. The most striking, a version with a plexiglass backrest. “To synthesize nature in order to naturalize industry. To recover the sense of Authenticity, Beauty and Goodness, ‘Tabu’ is a metaphor of truth.” says the Catalan designer.

David Tarcali, a member of the Budapest-based Studio-Nomad, designed a coffee and side table collection called ’3LEGS’. The three different types of tables are inspired by geometric patterns and architectural shapes. The name 3LEGS reflects the simplicity of how these forms work. Each table is folded from a single sheet of 3-millimeter-thick steel that gives it the characteristic abstract appearance seen from different perspectives.

The BOUNCE collection by Netherlands-based product designer Véronique Baer is a foam sculpture, which transforms into a soft and comfortable chair at the moment when someone sits down. It adapts totally to any kind of body shape and bounces back up, after its user left. The symmetrical shape of the chair invites to sit in it from every side and in every position.
The design is defined by simplicity. Only two foam plates are glued together by their ends to build the body of each chair. Covered by the flexible furniture fabrics of the dutch brand Febrik every chair gets its unique character.
It is fascinating how materials are able to change shape and transform their functions again and again. With BOUNCE the designer shows in how many ways normal furniture foam can be used. A chair can be much more than the usual seat surface with back support and legs. The BOUNCE family consists of three members Anton, Christine and Olaf. Big Anton will surround its user with back and side support when someone sits in it, while Christine is a soft comfortable chair and little Olaf has the function of a stool. They make a lovely picture when standing together.

Swedish designer , Staffan Holm, was intrigued when he was challenged to develop a shelf system, minimal in transportation size with no hassle assembly and a modern timeless appearance. The inspiration immediately turned to extendable scissor lift trucks. The genius construction lets the shelf become fully extracted in a matter of seconds and gives the shelf its special appearance.
The system can be freestanding, built in all directions or hung from the wall, making it a formidable resource when planning a home, office or restaurant.
