This week’s product launches

Handles made from lava, magnetic wood and flock inspired fabrics. Here are the products that caught my eye this week

Studio Ler work with enamelled lava to create unusual handles in an unlimited choice of colours (image above). Based in France, the company adds a decorative enamel to this extremely hardwearing substance which is mainly sourced in Puy de la Nugère and the Puy du Sancy. Auvergne has no less than 80 volcanoes, so the lava is readily available.

Morgan is a family run business that has been in operation for over 30 years. At CDW this year they launched the new Barricane dining chair designed by British designer Magnus Long. The chair is a contemporary design that pays homage to the traditional craft of caning. Unusual for a manufacturer, Morgan has its own caning station at its factory in Hampshire and, as with all its designs, everything is made to order to keep its carbon footprint low and avoid waste.

Erica Wakerly’s Modern Flock wallpapers recently won a prestigious Design Guild Mark. Following on from this success Erica has taken some of the designs from the range and launched Modern Flock fabrics. The new fabrics compliment the wallpaper range with geometric, upbeat patterns for commercial and residential use, combining functionality with a playful aesthetic.

Schotten & Hansen, creators of wooden flooring and surfaces, has partnered with Kit Kemp Design Studio to present the PIT-A-PAT table – showcasing a pioneering magnetic product treatment for floors and tables. The colourful design of the table features interchangeable, magnetic wood pieces that can be swapped into the template to change the design. The magnetic wood is also suitable for flooring.

The MindTheGap x David Hunt Lighting collaboration is a joyous and bold celebration of colour, pattern and artisanal craft. David Hunt Lighting’s designs, in bespoke colourways hand crafted in their Cotswolds workshop, have been joineed by MindTheGap’s lampshades hand made in Transylvania in their latest contemporary fabric collection LA DOLCE VITA. The collection includes both table lamps and chandeliers.
