Norm Architects is the multi-disciplinary team behind the new Cask collection of seating solutions for Expormim. Nothing more than two rounded pieces of rattan connected with thinner, vertical ribs and then combined with plush upholstery for a cosy lounging experience, the wicker design is modern and streamlined.

The rattan has a water-based coating to shoulder the elements if placed outdoors. Cask is a family of seating solutions that offers freshness in aesthetics with an ode to the traditions of rattan making.

Sancal’s Core settee has details that make it stand out. Image: Sancal.

The Core sofa manufactured by Spanish furniture brand Sancal is all about volumes expressed in a pure state. Designed by Danish-based Note Design Studio, its formal design — of classical details — is a fusion of old and new aesthetics that work synergistically.


Sancal’s Core settee has a compact form that’s perfect for designer studio homes. Image: Sancal.

Thus, the contemporary expression it projects is suitable for many home interiors. Its generous and comfortable seat is embraced by a delicate quilted back. The Core settee looks like its elements were made from a single block of material, chiselled by a sculptor.

Magis’ Costume settee flaunts a chic and timeless aesthetic. Image: Magis.

Fancy dressing up your sofa as your please? With the Magis’ Costume settee designed by German designer Stefan Diez, you can. The costume is actually the skin/fabric of the settee which is made from a 4mm-thin polypropylene structure that is recycled and recyclable. You can give the settee’s dress a tight and perfect fit with the metal insert that pulls together two modules while a looped string fastener pulls it tight from underneath.

The fabric can be washed or replaced at any time. The modular system can be interlocked with other modules according to your room’s layout or personal preference. Every seat offers embedded pocket springs for maximum comfort instead of problematic synthetic foam. All parts are separately replaceable if you wish to extend the settee’s lifespan.

Cantarutti’s Hyppo settee offers a playful, cosy form. Image: Cantarutti.

Born in Cortona in 1980, Valerio Sommella earned his design chops from studying industrial design at Milan’s Politecnico. His idea of good design is a balance of materials, technologies, form, and function. Thus, the objects he creates are deemed as “short stories” — each with its own design narrative, plot, characters, and ending.

And so with the Hyppo series of armchairs, sofas, settees, and poufs, which he designed for Italian furniture brand Cantarutti, it is all about subtle curves and generous volumes. While the upholstery is sumptuous and embracing, the small wooden elements which form the legs add a beautiful and striking contrast. The fact that the settee’s or armchair’s edges are perfectly rounded, they seem totally absent. One can choose leather or fabric to complete your seating solution. There’s no denying that you reap absolute warmth and comfort spending time sitting or lounging on them.
