Event Preview: Collection

Featuring a curated edit of 30 brands leading the way in European design, Collection is a new exhibition space for HIX where furniture and lighting brands serve up a taste of their latest lines.

Served by a dedicated ‘mini bar’ and soundtrack for a true hospitality design experience, Collection includes forward thinking names like Moooi, Allermuir, Fritz Fryer, Muuto, Mater, Ben Rousseau, Marset and more.

COLLECTION: Muuto / Moooi / Allermuir / Fritz Fryer / Arturo Aleverez / Fredericia / Mater / A Emotional / Gubi / Joe Scog / Marset / Hidde / Christian Watson / Ben Rousseau / Hoad & More / Surco / Solus Ceramics / Quasar / Nichba / Clippings / Pyton / Piaval / Mallion & Knowles

Drawing inspiration from milanese bourgeois compound sofas, soft femininity, and the beauty of botanicals, Moooi’s Aldora Sofa channels these ideals through a curving form designed by Christina Celestino.

Designed by Patrick Norguet, Allermuir’s Bastille is a seating family comprising a dining, lounge and bar stool in a minimalist aesthetic. Details like perimeter piping and hand finished fluted stitching give the collection a quiet, pared back sense of luxury whilst its wrap around shell and elegant A-frame create a robust, fuss-free silouhette. The range’s legs are available in four finishes of soft gold, soft silver, deep mulberry and new black. 

Ben Rousseau
Tempus is a new collective of innovative illuminated timepieces designed to change the way we look at time. Combining an aluminium and glass case with a futuristic LED graphic clock, this kinetic artwork is available in either wall-mounted or standing designs.

Fritz Fryer
Fritz Fryer will launch its new design – The Alton Pillar Light – at HIX stand A1 as part of a light installation. Designed by Simon Wallis-Smith, who will be present at the stand to answer any design questions, the innovative Alton comprises four sleek glass tubes along with a selection of sturdy brass components. 

Designed by Space Copenhagen, Mater’s Eternity is a new stackable shell side chair made entirely of waste materials. Constructed via a patented process called Mater Circular Material, the circular shell is made from upcycled fibre-based waste from Danish coffee producer BKI Kaffe and plastic waste from fellow HIX exhibitor Grohe. The new technique allows for the mixture of various waste streams whilst simultaneously reducing carbon emissions.

“We’re incredibly proud to take part in this exciting new process and technology,” say Peter Bundgaard Rützou & Signe Bindslev Henriksen, founders of Space Copenhagen. “And also to finally to present a stacking chair that is also circular. The foundation of our design is the material’s inspiring organic and tactile nature. The name Eternity speaks to Mater’s circular approach, but also reflects the idea that the chair can be stacked sky-high, at least theoretically.”
