August was a pretty busy month for design news, with many of our favourite brands announcing roll out plans for new product. Below are a selection of pieces we're particularly excited to get our hands on. Unfortunately we'll have to wait a few months before some of the items are on our shelves but rest assured, as soon as they're ready to order you'll find them online here at Utility.
Menu Knitting Chair
Defined by an exposed, triangular construction, a gently curved seat and back ideally pitched for relaxation, and distinctive cut-outs for resting the elbows when reading, the Menu Knitting Chair affirms Kofod-Larsen’s reputation as a master of proportion and unexpected, sculptural form.
Skagerak Jut Cabinet
Jut is developed in collaboration with the British designer Thomas Jenkins – now living in the Norwegian capital Oslo. By placing the round legs on the outer corners of the cabinet, Jenkins wants to bring a negative space to the piece while enabling an interplay with light and shade. This also conceals the brass-handles which are aligned right under the table top.
Menu Echasse Vase Large
The Échasse Vase from Menu was designed by Copenhagen based architect and designer Theresa Rand. The elegant drop-shaped form may have been inspired by laboratory test tubes but the Échasse Vase is much more suited to showcasing your favourite flowers than it is chemistry experiments. Now available with clear glass and black base version (in smallest size only).
Anglepoise Mini Mini
At half the size of the ever-popular 1970’s Model 90 that inspired it, the Anglepoise 90 Mini Mini has all the versatility and personality of a Type 75 desk lamp and puts light right where you need it. The new release has a USB power cable, perfect for use in combination with your laptop.
Fritz Hansen Planner Coffee Table
The structured yet minimal Planner coffee table from Fritz Hansen features a rectangular shaped marble surface and powder-coated steel base. Perfect for any modern home that values simplicity and materials used in a contemporary design. The coffee table series also includes a square and round version.
Ferm Living Turn Day Bed
The strict horizontal lines, along with its slim metal legs in powder coated metal, gives the Turn Daybed an elegant and light appearance. The two fitted belts in harness leather not only act as a sleek modern detail, they also add to the high quality feel and hold the cushion firmly in place. Reversible, dual-coloured cushions allow you to create either an understated and classic look or a more bold and distinct expression one, depending on your mood.
Muuto Fiber Lounge Chair
