In spring time Indera and some journalists went to visit CuldeSac in Valencia
In addition to the successful footstool "Bowler", the Spanish designer group, CuldeSac, created a new sofa for Belgian manufacturer INDERA.
The characteristic feature of this revised seating concept is in it's unique structure.
A layer of wood has been placed over the frame, in order to give the sofa a firm but soft shape. The combination of the show wood and the frame inside gives the effect of a continuous thread.
CuldeSac brings the wooden structure of the sofa explicitly to the exterior with nothing hidden inside the internal frame. By showing the detailed inside of the frame, it emphasises the solid character and high quality production. Every detail in the wooden structure is on view, giving a warm and timeless overall appearance.
FRAME is available as a corner group, in various colours of fabric and leather.
Function, humor, fantasy
Belgian design company Indera joined forces with Bram Boo, rising star in the design firmament. The result is 'Barbasso', a beautiful set of timeless tables.
The rounded shape of the 'Barbasso' side and coffee tables provides a compelling contrast to the rectangular structure of most sofas. Enriched by an additional tabletop and asymmetrical legs these tables are a perfect fusion of function, humor and fantasy.
Bram Boo has been selected Designer of the year 2010. He is the 5th Belgian designer to receive this title.
The title allows him to exhibit at Interior 2010 in October where he will be granted with the official award.
"CLASSIC 010 is a reflection of modernity and a suggestion of
traditional, without any indulgence to shape or function but with an
incessant amount of indulgences to the use of colour and material".
"Classic" refers to the conventional design where peace and tranquillity are considered the essence of beauty.
..... something that reflects influence and is taken as an illustration
..... something that respects lifestyle
These definitions of the word "Classic" inspired Luc Vincent during his creation of the CLASSIC 010 for INDERA.
After the past years of indulgence and excess, today's creative industry needs established calmness.
The new slant on the traditional theme from Luc Vincent allows non compliance (such as complete freedom in expression of colours and materials), but at the same time, drawing attention to the essence of "the beauty"; on the feel of the materials, on the power of well considered finishing details and on the cohesion between shape and function.
Offering comfort is therefore the most important function of the CLASSIC 010, offering seating, practicality and visual comfort for all generations.
With the CLASSIC 010, Luc Vincent brings a poetic slant to the traditional use as well as justifying certain inclusions.
His search for the perfect, essential proportions led Jean-François d'Or to ASTRID, a timeless set that exudes both a vintage and contemporary feeling.
ASTRID consists of 3 side tables, which form a small, but powerful architectural piece of furniture due to the pure graphical interplay of their lines.
Jean-François D'Or is continuously on the look-out for new materials, which he refines without ostentation. His modest, simple and coherent objects flow from the directness and clarity of their concept as well as their discrete poetry.
The ASTRID tables can be used modularly and can therefore be placed in a variety of interiors, either in the living room, bedroom or bathroom.
Although ASTRID is wonderful as a set, but tables can also be bought separately.
Practical details : ASTRID tables are available in natural oak or mat white coating with a top layer in corial, opal glass or polished copper. Measurements: SMALL : 38 x 45 x H 45 cm - MEDIUM : 40 x 52 x H 52 cm - LARGE : 42 x 58 x H 60 cm
• From now, a practical protective cover will be available for the aluminium FLOW Outdoor sofa (a design from Xavier Lust)
• SINTESE+, the comfortable little sister of the sofa Sintese, is now also available without seams. • Indera has added a new wood finish to its range. All wooden sofa parts, tables and occasional tables will now also be available in a very dark black/brown finish.
Indera will be present at the Interieur Kortrijk fair between 15-24/10/2010.
