Menu Hashira Lighting
Designed by Norm Architects, Hashira is a modern, Nordic twist on traditional Japanese rice paper lanterns. The name Hashira, is taken from the Japanese word for column or pillar and it is this that characterises the lamps.
Produced by everyone's favourite Danish design company Menu, the Hashira lamps feature curved geometric forms and are made from an elegant translucent fabric that softly diffuses light while projecting it in multiple directions.
The Hashira collection of table, floor and pendant lights are perfect for those interested in achieving the popular Japandi style trend.

Knoll Cesca Chairs
The Knoll Cesca Armchair - originally knows and the B32 Chair - was designed in 1928 by Marcel Breuer. A revolutionary chair at the time, Cesca's production was executed using a chromed tubular steel cantilevered base onto which the caned seat and back are mounted.
It's a chair which, although familiar, pushed the boundary in design realisation yet still resonates today as much as it did then. Ubiquitous in its heyday - over 250,000 were sold - it's a chair which had found new popularity to a modern audience once again.
