Scoop Beside Tables designed by JEROME GAULTHIER and produced by SUB-CON
Minimalist efficiency and pure lines are at heart of this modern piece. The Scoop effortlessly combines the function of a bedside table with the sensual appeal of ambient lighting in one unit. The white powder-coated steel frame is crowned with a flip top that allows you to choose between a white or walnut veneer table finish.
ARMCHAIR designed by PHILIP TREACY and produced by SUB-CON
“I’v never designed a chair before, but it was not so different to designing a hat”, PHILIP TREACY, Hat designer.
As a hat frames the face, the oversized disc shape of this futuristic chair perfectly frames the sitter. Made in Denmark with steel legs, a vacuum formed moulded and upholstered shell that is hand stitched into a vivid wool cover, the portrait chair is contemporary yet timeless an absolute classical.
