Mid-century art and design get a new lease on life.
Designer: Manlio Rho from Amini Carpets.
Product: Composizione 57 12.
Standout: An abstract painting from the 1930’s has now become a rug, hand-knotted in Nepal from hand-spun Tibetan highland wool.
Designer: Miguel Milá from Santa & Cole.
Product: Cestita Batería.
Standout: Based on the original Cesta, a 1962 plug-in lamp, a new version relies on today’s battery-charged LEDs for portability.
Designer: Poul Kjærholm from Carl Hansen & Søn.
Standout: Still produced with a steel frame woven with linen-wrapped halyard, this 1955 chair, Kjærholm’s first, now boasts larger dimensions.
