Designed by Koenraad Ruys for Moca in Belgium, Framed is artfully-reduced storage at its most graphic. Created from a series of colour-block volumes, held together in a linear frame, the collection includes sideboards, tables and cupboards. Coated in pristine lacquer, Framed is available in a myriad of expressive colourways – plus a new all-black finish for the colour-averse.

Unveiled in 1950, the CH23 dining chair was the first of five pieces Hans J. Wegner designed for iconic Danish firm Carl Hansen & Søn. Refined and beautifully crafted, the CH23 embodied the attention to detail Carl Hansen was noted for, from its elegantly-formed woodwork to the double-woven paper-cord seat. After decades out of production, the CH23 has been reissued for admirers of timeless craftsmanship.

Astro is a series of oak trays that can be combined and stacked in endless combinations. Whether used as a desk tidy, serving platters for guests' drinks or a still-life display, all those everyday items you never know where to put now have a place. Designer Nestor Campos named them with reference to the universe, where all elements, however small or disparate, are brought together into order.
"No two materials are alike. No two sites on earth are alike. No two buildings have the same purpose. The purpose, the site, the material determine the shape. Nothing can be reasonable or beautiful unless it’s made by one central idea, and the idea sets every detail. A building is alive, like a man."
