Reel Rocking Chair by David Meddings

For people who really like to curl-up and get cozy with a book or with a blanket in a rocking chair, these amazing rockers made from real wooden reels similar to those used for transporting power cables, might interest you a lot. Created by David Meddings of Reel Furniture, these chairs made out of recycled timber offer a very relaxing reclining position for a short nap, if you know what I mean. House it in your yard or garden or simply put it up on your back porch and enjoy lazing about in the most soothing position you can find on a piece of timber. P.S. you might wanna invest in a little custom-made cushioning too if you have that bad habit of falling dead asleep in your rockers. Yours for £435.

Pouf de Paille by Tete Knecht

One of the pieces that fascinated us at IMM Cologne was the Pouf de Paille by Tete Knecht. The unusual combination of materials made this memorable, so we tracked down Knecht for more information. We were surprised to discover footwear of the same materials, but we should not have been, as this designer’s portfolio is full of interesting designs.

This year’s theme, The surprising world of Moroso is taken from a quote by Patrizia Moroso in Elena Commessatiâ’s book Cavalicco Friuli Mondo i.e. To be good, you have to be surprising. Innovative through and through, but that doesn”t necessarily mean being unsettling. Surprising is the right word.

The stand at the fair ground has been designed by Patricia Urquiola and Moroso’s showroom will be transformed into The Little Wild Garden of Love by Tord Boontje, to showcase their new outdoor collection.
