W. Atelier Unveils New Products Planned For Salone Del Mobile 2020
Novelties from Fritz Hansen, Gloster, Lasvit, Lema and Vitra affirm that constant innovation and inspiration lie at the heart of design
23 June 2020, Singapore – Salone del Mobile 2020 may have been cancelled due to the coronavirus and retail has radically shape-shifted in the past few months, but design brands continue to innovate to transcend limitations. W. Atelier presents products from its international array of brands – Fritz Hansen, Gloster, Lasvit, Lema and Vitra – that were planned for Salone del Mobile 2020.
Celebrate with Fritz Hansen
Fritz Hansen reissues the Vico Duo chair in celebration of the 100th anniversary of Vico Magistretti’s birth. Magistretti designed the chair in 1997, sitting among his sketches in Fritz Hansen’s design department. Vico Duo is simple with tight lines. A loose ‘z’ line drawn across paper inspired the chair’s backward armrests – an usual element that intentionally balances the design. The armrests and backlegs are one piece of steel – another unique aspect of the design.
Other launches by Fritz Hansen are accessories that brighten up the everyday: elegant Rugs and Pouf by Cecilie Manz; Happy Hook and Ikeru Vases by Jaime Hayon for a touch of playful whimsy; and the multipurpose AJ Trolley by Arne Jacobsen.

Embrace Open Spaces with Gloster
Mistral lounge chair and sofa; Lodge Cabana
Gloster aspires to complement nature with new beautifully crafted outdoor furniture in its signature plantation teak. Mistral is a perfect balance of subtle and sophisticated details designed to nestle right into its natural environment rather than control it. A pleasing chorus of symmetrical curves and a natural, neutral palette of colours form the Mistral lounge chair and sofa. The new Fern sofa by Sebastian Herkner is an imposing, yet cosy outdoor sofa with a design language that harks back to nature.
Configure a harmonious outdoor setting with the Lima storage chest and serving table, the luxurious Lodge Cabana with stylish striped fabrics and deep outdoor cushions, and add a warm glow with the Ambient Pebble which comes in marbled, natural stone bases in Carbon or Fire, holding up their gently curving aluminium shades.

Follow Lasvit to a Field of Lighting Novelties
Lasvit presents four new pieces of ready-to-shine glass lightings that will fit into every corner. It teams up with Japanese studio Nendo once again to breathe life into a previous collection to present Press Iced, a delicate piece dressed in an “iced glass” frosted surface.
The other novelties derive from Czech designers – Lasvit’s own creative director Maxim Velčovský, and two shooting stars Lukáš Novák and Cyril Dunděra. They play with space, fire and illusions to present Spacey, which encapsulate the beauty of the universe into a sphere; Volcano, inspired by the volcanic lands of Northern Bohemia; and Globe Metro, an iridescent visual puzzle formed by convex and concave shapes. The Crystal Rock Table Lamp is the latest addition to the Crystal Rock collection.

The Art of Dialogue with Lema
Gullwing table system by Gabriele and Oscar Buratti
The slogan “The art of dialogue” remains at the heart of the concept behind Lema’s new releases. The new projects may differ in styles but they share a unified design vision which once again reveals the brand’s innate ability to bring together multiple characters within a single collection. Gabriele and Oscar Buratti present the sculptural Gullwing table system, Florens sideboard and Ortis sidetables, in their first collaboration with Lema.
Lema also debuts the Sesto table, a strong contemporary design characterised by the lightness of the rectangular top supported by a double trestle base; Lucylle, a new family of seating; and the Bulè table, which is designed with the social and cultural elements of the oriental market in mind.
