From Milan

Botton + Gardiner introduce the latest products from Milan 2009.


May 28th, 2009

Botton + Gardiner have a brave vision to “uplift the human spirit by enhancing the public environment through design excellence, quality production and outstanding service”.

It is a vision much more than just words – it has become the foundation of a quest to enhance and beautify the public spheres we all share.

The company have allowed their mission statement to guide the development of their portfolio, with a strong commitment to bringing cutting edge contemporary design and high-end quality furniture to the Australian market.

This commitment recently took Mike Botton – Director of Design – to the 2009 Milan furniture fair in search of the most exciting products suitable for commercial use.

This called, not just for aesthetically attractive products, but for those with structural strength, requiring low maintenance and with ergonomics to suit multiple and varied users.

The results of Mike Botton’s search through the latest in international furniture design are three new seating products – the ‘Loop 3D Vinterio’, ‘Margot’ and ‘Now’ chairs.

Loop 3D Vinterio

The comfortable, refined and customisable ‘Loop 3D Vinterio’ introduces new technology to bend the multi-layer veneer wood, curving it in three dimensions without breaking. Loop is also available in SAN Technoplastic.


The stackable ‘Margot’ chair made from polished polycarbonate is characterised by weightless forms, pure surfaces and intelligent construction. The high-tech design uses a unique injection moulding process to create this elegant yet practical chair.


This chair – made from polypropylene and fibreglass – incorporates an elegant white upper surface with a burst of colour on the underside. Designed to “live in the present” ‘Now’ uses the latest bi-injection moulding technology to create strength and deliver visual appeal.

These new products, available from June 2009, offer the Australian market contemporary design, not yet seen with local competitors and competing Asian products, all at a competitive price point.

Botton + Gardiner also continue their strong line of in-house designs with the upcoming launch of the new TETRA range later this year.

“In short botton+gardiner is on the move and we are looking forward to presenting the Australian market with new and exciting products,” says Mike Botton.
