Style, Function and Design Perfectioninspired by HUGO

Contemporary classics and innovative new products for the living room, bedroom and kitchen - these are our favorites:

Ready to relax!
Mission relaxation! Chilling out often requires just two little things: time and a good book. Of course, a comfy chair in which to get settled can also come in handy: the legendary George Nelson Coconut Chair is an absolute classic. Typical of the 50s, the design sees clean, modern shapes given a humorous twist. Your favorite tomes will find ample space on the shelving system “Stacked” by the Danish architects JDS Architects for Muuto. It impresses chiefly due to the large number of variations that are possible – from a simple bookcase through to a individual mix of cubes. Whatever form the shelving ends up taking, there is one book that definitely deserves pride of place: Northern Delights, published by Gestalten, showcases Scandinavian design. There is no need for the dim evening light to spoil a good read – the timeless Arco Lamp by Italian designer Achille Castiglioni conjures up atmospheric lighting. The heavy marble base provides stability while the free swinging curved arm generates movement. So no need to put your book down, night or day.

Sleep in Style!
Drift off like on cloud nine in the design piece “Alcova” by Italian architect Antonia Citterio, who has already seen success working with brands such as Vitra and Kartell. While the frame, made of solid dark oak, is striking, the simple lines equally convey restraint and lightness. Light off, spotlight on: the subtle light installation “Ray F” by Rodolfo Dordoni provides a cozy atmosphere while managing to be a design statement itself: the glossy lampshade on top of the tubular steel structure delivers a beautifully diffused light.

In the kitchen, functionality has top priority. This can often compete with aesthetic needs. Nevertheless, there are in this field proven design classics that masterfully combine style with function and turn the kitchen into a wellness oasis. The espresso maker, designed specifically for the design shop Zani & Zani by legendary designer Ettore Sottsass combines the delicious taste of espresso with elegant design using matte aluminum and melamine handles. The innovative shapes of the crockery set "Slices of Design by Italian ceramics manufacturer Bosa provides the perfect setting for a delicious feast or special occasion. Inspiration for the menu is provided by the cookbook "A Delicious Life", where innovative food entrepreneurs present their latest delicacies that turn every evening into a taste sensation.
