Same? Not Exactly II


4. Special table top with sleek and black metal base

To highlight the simplicity and modernity, mixture or materials has been one of the contemporary Scandinavian design cores recently, in terms of matching the natural materials like oak/ marble with black powder coated metal.
Like the following 2 eye-catching coffee tables in the contrast of marble/ glasses as table tops with sleek and slender legs as the main construction. 
//
混合橡木的觸感、大理石的紋理及黑色塗層的鋼鐵,設計師以個人風格混搭多種材料展示新的面貌,似乎成為了這個世紀的主流。以下為兩款均以厚重橢圓形檯面搭配幼細的鋼鐵檯腳的邊桌:

Nono Table
Nono Table

Matching with the calm and silence of Menu, Nono Table (2016) is an elegant piece with reflective solid glass top with slightly raised table edges, set off the surroundings beautifully . The co-creation by 2 design studios - Note Design Studio and Norm Architects, started from a chit chat including the contrast of lightness - slender legs and heaviness - solid table tops. (Available in 2 sizes, 3 glasses tops)
//
秉持Menu的冷調簡約,Nono茶几(2016)以塗色玻璃作檯面,反光面擴大室內的空間,微微提高的鋼鐵檯邊,放上一個倒滿的玻璃杯,形成的波紋倒影尤其優雅。由 Note Design Studio 及 Norm Architects 兩間設計公司合作設計,機緣巧合源於一次在傢俱展覽上的閒聊,發現雙方對於材質的對比有共同的想法,一拍即合。(2種大小及3種玻璃面可選擇)

Note Design Studio is a group of passionate talents who discover and share insights with the world by adapting to market needs without compromising their own expressions. Platel is designed for Punt as well: a group of 2 coat racks and a platform (or even a foundation of extra shelvings) to elevate and show items in order with castors to move around the house and locks to stay still.
//
Note Design Studio由一群熱情且富有天賦的設計師,他們尋遍世界創作符合市場需要的產品,以個人風格創的一片天地。他們亦為Punt設計了Platel,以兩個衣架為主,避免衣服直接碰觸地下而設的底座可加放其他組合櫃,更在底下設有安全鎖的車輪方便移動,同時可以靜止擺放。(*On Display)

Verde Coffee Table

Expanding soft and elegant lines of the VERDE collection, Verde Coffee Table (2019) is another well-recognised style of Rikke Frost - she enjoys matching materials into lovely pieces with soft lines. Designed to be a centerpiece of the living room, it is spacious enough to hide some items under the circular marble, glasses and vases can be placed on the black painted oak veneer top within the sleek black metal frame in oval shape. (Available in 2 marble table tops)
//
延續Verde系列的柔和線條及型態,Verde茶几(2019)以圓形的大理石作其中一塊檯面,與橢圓形的橡木檯面之間有足夠空間放置小物品,兩款檯面以鋼鐵分隔,花瓶雜誌遙控器水瓶等可放在鋼鐵包圍的檯面上,實用之餘,作為客廳的主角最適合不過。(兩種大理石面可選擇)

Rikke Frost is one of the very first few designers to team and create for WOUD with love. She enjoys her life and designs pieces to be seen, felt and touched. A Dryp (Means "Drip" in Danish) Drying Rack is designed for Skagerak as well: a handy and foldable rack for loading wet clothes without sliding to the floor (thanks to the rubber tips underneath).
//
Rikke Frost享受作為設計師的生活,並且希望自己的作品除了可以看見、
感受、更可碰觸的。她的理念與WOUD不謀而合,是在WOUD創立早期便率先合作的設計師之一。她亦為SKAGERAK設計了可折疊的Dryp掛衣架(丹麥語意指"滴下"),是一款即使晾滿濕透的衣服毛巾時,也不會滑下的座地晾衣架,空置時折起靠牆擺放便可。

 

5. Roundness & Lightness

Roundness, softness, lightness are some of the top elements contributing to the simplicity and aesthetics of Scandinavian designs, which black metal legs and round table tops are always one of the first choices.
//
極簡美感著稱的北歐設計,以幼細的黑色檯腳呈現他們特有的輕巧洗鍊感,配合圓形檯面為空間增添一點柔和及圓滑感。


Stilk

Hold it up and take a short break in the beauty of silence. 𝗦𝗧𝗜𝗟𝗞 is a black and white coffee/side table in matte finishing. Designed for lounge-like and laid-back interiors, a small gap lies between the slightly raised table edges and table surface with 90 degree straight and slim metal legs as support in simple and sleek modernity.
//
STILK沿用經典的啞面黑白配色,以垂直幼細的黑色塗層檯腳支撐,邊緣與檯面之間留有少許罅隙,讓你可暫時在稍微提高的檯邊半掛雜誌,暫歇一會享受謐靜的空間。

Duo

𝗗𝗨𝗢 is Inspired by “vesica piscis” - the two overlapping circular forms in the same radius. Smoked tempered glass as the top layer and black painted metal as the bottom layer, the elegance and silence are captured by the eclipse on top of the stable yet light and thin welded construction. (Designed by a Taiwanese-born Canadian designer - Chifen Cheng, currently living in London)

Cheng’s ideas always come from how lines and forms intersect in a space. WOUD spotted Chifen Cheng’s side table at Stockholm Furniture and Lighting Fair 2017, then launched DUO at WOUD in the next year with new name and colour palettes.
//
DUO的設計靈感來自於vesica piscis - 兩個半徑相同重疊的圓形,以煙燻色的強化玻璃為上層檯面,下層則是焊接的黑色金屬材質,相映成趣的明月配合黑色金屬支撐勾勒光線折影,寧靜優雅同時為空間增添立體感。

由台灣出生 擁有加拿大籍 現正在倫敦生活的Chifen Cheng設計,她的設計多基於形狀和線條的結合點衍生出來。在2017年斯德哥爾摩的傢俱燈飾展中,WOUD發現了她的設計,經合作詳談後賦予新的名字及選色在2018隨即推出市面。

Soround

If you have to choose among wood, laminate and concrete, a fiber concrete table top is obviously the first one that pops up in mind. In terms of the showmanship of veins on the bevelled table edges and slightly bending legs, an industrial contemporary space can be styled by mixing up the architectonic lined 𝗦𝗢𝗥𝗢𝗨𝗡𝗗 with solid wood or wood and metal furnishings .
//
在眾多材質中最特別的是 SOROUND的纖維混凝土檯面,檯面邊緣微斜特顯材質的紋理,配合微彎的黑色金屬檯腳抗壓耐用。簡潔的建築線條設計以沈穩的淺灰細調,搭配金屬木質混合或實木傢俬,營造現代工業風的北歐式家居。

Nido (Set of 3)

Punt - Nido (Set of 3) was originally designed in 1964 with oak/ walnut wood finish (in E1 MDF table top and solid wood frame) with beautiful veins in the structural dovetail joints.
//
1964年設計的NIDO,則以較為富層次感的胡桃木/淡雅的橡木作為材料,分別以實木及木皮切割加工而成,紋理及接合點清晰可見。

Wonder if you discover the Spanish tiles on photos of Punt? They usually make use of their clean and mostly straight lined wooden furniture as the core of interior with the special Mediterranean tiles as complements. Moreover, you might be able to establish a quick and good rapport with Ferm Living. In terms of Ferm Living's interior styling, you can feel "home" and see them alive with their curated combinations of furnishings and home accessories, for example filling the space with books/ vases/ drafts/ blankets just like how you start to put things randomly a month after rearrangement. 
//
PUNT大多以俐落現代風格的木傢俬作空間的重點,細心留意會發現他們使用當地的特色磁磚作襯托,好好保留地中海的色調風格。Ferm Living則著重傢俱飾品之間互相搭配,讓人容易想像實際使用的感覺,比如本來飾品/水瓶擺放的位置早已放滿書藉草稿,生活感紙上躍然。
