The Salone del Mobile Milan 2015 saw the launch of four new additions to the Zilio A&C collection, created in collaboration with international designers who share the company’s guiding principles and ethos
June 24th, 2015
The additions to the Zilio A&C collection, available in Australia through Cafe Culture + Insitu, include the Nasu armchair, designed by Mentsen.
Nasu is the first fully upholstered dining chair from Zilio A&C, developed in collaboration with Mentsen. With its gentle enveloping back and slim suspended seat, the elegant, well-proportioned armchair offers greater comfort for more relaxed settings.
The Pur chair is a wooden chair designed by Note Design Studio. Its universal appeal is thanks to its strong personality and craftsmanship, and is a welcome addition to the existing Zilio A&C collection. The low backrest is generous and embracing, offering comfort in any seated position. It’s also stackable, perfect for everyday life.
June is a round mirror with a secret shelf and hook, the brainchild of Swiss designer, Simon Kämpfer. Elegant and simple, smart and practical, June is an extension of the 2014 family and design language of ‘Laurel, Stan and Hardy’.
Finally, the Frank Wall Hook is a robust wall hook that plays on the juxtaposition of circular and rectangular shapes. Also designed by Simon Kämpfer, the hooks are compact yet functional and sturdy, together with June it is designed for small spaces and in-between places. A wonderful addition to any hallway and interior.

Beyond a can-do, make-do culture, what sets Australian design apart from its contemporary counterparts?
Much more than hot desking, Activity Based Working (ABW) has become an important aspect of contemporary workplace culture – with many businesses using it as a way to commit to employee welfare and productivity, especially in computer-intensive workplaces.
