The Tavares Chair

Developed by request of a landmark Lisbon restaurant bearing the same name, the Tavares chair is an object of thoughtful geometric lines, a “Shell” as a chair. Built in black steel, its forms reveal the the simplicity of an object that integrates with its surrounding architecture defining a common space identity.

When Germans get creative...

A Kitchen and a bathroom! Sometimes its amazing to see how creative people can get with our products. Ikarus, a chain of iconic design stores in Germany, managed to integrated our classic items into some of the most different living spaces yet.

Combining an Ivy shelving unit to streamline fixtures gave this bathroom a sleak, clean cut look.
