Deskbox

 

Designed by: Raw Edges for Arco

Why we love it: Ideal for situations with limited space, the Deskbox slides open to become a convenient work space. Retracting to half this area, it is the latest evolution in Arco’s drive for innovation and ingenuity in desk design.

Rocky

   

Designed by: Marc Newson for Magis

Why we love it: Good design for children is sadly hard to come by, so it’s great to see this simple, cost-effective rocking horse featuring at Milan this year. With a gentle rocking motion and classic equine inspiration, childhood nostalgia is unavoidable.

Designed by: Omer Arbel for Bocci

Why we love it: Combining mouth-blown glass, a planter and copper finish, the 38 Series is unexpected but reassuring.
