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.”

Warm Nordic
At HIX 2022, Warm Nordic will showcase a selection of pieces channeling the rich history and traditions of Scandinavian design. Originally designed in 1966 by Jo Hammerborg, the Trombone Table lamp features a cylindrical metal shade with narrow vertical cracks that allow for a distinctive lighting effect, whilst the wooden Runa Desk by Isabel Ahm draws inspiration from the secretive ambience and visual poetry of Nordic forests at dusk. The Cape Lounge Chair, meanwhile, is designed by Patricia Urquiola and is available in Kvadrat fabrics with or without visible stitching, and the iconic 1960s Cow Horn dining seat by Knud Færch is a space-making statement in itself.

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.

OneHundredTwentyThree Credenza Round is soft and light in shape, but rich in details and materiality. It features two sleek brass metal feet that give the impression the piece is floating, whilst central section is constructed from solid Croatian Oak that highlights its serene structure.

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.
