Bean, design: Mark Naden
"When a building is in its early stages of construction only the structure is visible. For many buildings this is the point at which they achieve their greatest beauty. This is also when, by virtue of their transparency, we have the greatest understanding the architecture. Once the final surface is applied this simple purity is lost. With this collection I am exploring the contrast between structure and surface. The surface is partially visible but everywhere else suggested so even though the object is only partly skinned, the entire form is understood".
Collection that comprises armchair, chair and fixed stool with a base in steel bars supporting a flexible structure in thinner steel bars. Bodies in coloured glossy Abs.
Pouf Pot, design: Mark Naden
"It is an exploration of geometries equally expressed on both sides of an object, a chair, in which the front is traditionally given more attention than the back. This makes it a chair that is more suited to placement towards the center and away from the edge where any viewpoint at which it is observed provides an interesting perspective".

Sliding, hinged, tilting doors, deep bases designed for the passage of wires, wainscots that may be equipped with storage units, shelves in wood, aluminium and glass.
