New Italian design brand Colé will be launching during Milan Design Week, here are some designs by Catharina Lorenz and Steffen Kaz.
LORENZ · KAZ – SECRETO CHAIR
A chair modern and traditional at the same time, that responds perfectly to the brief “to work inspired by traditional furniture creating industrial design with artisan taste”. A key element is the structure which denotes the complexity linked to the manufacture and to different levels of details, especially in the back, composed of interlocking rods inserted by hand into the base. Provided in solid beech wood, matt lacquered, white or black (or customised upon request) or natural beech, can be upholstered in a choice of plain or patterned Kvadrat fabrics”.
LORENZ · KAZ – SECRETO CHAIR / MIRROR
“The hanger is the first furniture to be found when entering home, the reason to make it a piece of strong character”. Catharina and Steffen say so about their ironic project, a true hybrid between an upholstered retrò chair with a minimalist mirror as a back and an element to hang up clothes. The wooden structure at the top presents a junction cut at 45 ° to enhance craftsmanship.
LORENZ · KAZ – SECRETO COFFEE TABLE
Comes from the idea of transforming the “Traditional coffee table book, usually covered by all kind of books, magazines and newspapers, into a “coffee table book table”, where actually both books and cups have a place of their own!”. Solid wood frame bent for the base, lower level in lathe carved solid wood, and top level in lacquered wood.
