What does the future of commercial interiors have in store for us? This year’s Salone del Mobile Milan, or Milan Furniture Fair, has given us some indication with a slew of commercial product launches. Wrap your eyes around the following five furniture and lighting pieces, destined to take our spaces – and project designs – into the next level.

Casual and inviting – RUT from Blå Station

RUT from Blå Station, Blå Station is available at P4 in Australia.

Versatile in any environment, RUT from Blå Stationadapts with its assembly of any amount of seating modules you need. For comfort in a laid-back space or formality in a productive environment, RUT is the evolution of the sofa. The contrast between its soft and generous seating modules and the solid oak supports brings us that step closer to the future workplace.

From the cup to the chair – Kartell Re-chair from illycaffè

With subtle curves and designed for support, the Re-chair modals what the circular economy can be.

An exploration of the extraordinary – Melt from Tom Dixon

Melt from Tom Dixon, available through various suppliers in Australia.

Dripping with a psychedelic vision, Melt brings our world into the world of Dichroic filters. With highly technical coatings created initially by NASA, multiple colours shimmer through white light in a kaleidoscope of bubble-esque spheres.

It’s all in the weave – Mo Bridge Bench from Ritzwell

Mo Bridge Bench from Ritzwell, available at Stylecraft in Australia.

Through the weaves of leather, one can see the delicate harmony the MO Bridge Bench harbours. Three simple features craft together this refined design, with the leather weave, wide solid wood top, and slim metal legs bringing minimalism to the forefront of everyone’s mind.

Shaped to perfection – Goood from Matiere Grise

Goood from Matiere Grise.

Sometimes simplicity is all it takes. Inspired by nothing more than four quarter circles and side panels, designer Luc Jozancy’s emblematic style fits in any home or workplace. The assembly of the four panels can be woven into any interior, with bright colours lighting any space.
