Ultimate Design Hunter Package: The Prizes

Euroluce, Atollo Medio

The ATOLLO, over the years, has become an iconic table lamp, winning the Compasso d’Oro in 1979 and completely revolutionising the way we imagine the classic bedside lamp. The geometric shapes that compose it – cylinder, cone and hemisphere – have resulted that has become one of the icons of Italian design. Contributed by Euroluce.

Design By Them, Bow Chair by Tom Fereday

Named after its arching slender backrest, the Bow Chair was designed to accentuate the material and crafting of solid timber. Contributed by Design By Them, each transition of the Bow Chair highlights the elegant, natural grain of shaped timber.

Didier, TILLER Lounge Armchair

With trapezoidal legs elegantly tapered toward the seat, recline in confident, leisurely style with the TILLER Oak Lounge Chair. Designed by Didier, the TILLER offers beautifully upholstered comfort with natural oak finishes.

Savage Design, Pam Table

Like your aunty Pam, this table has a knack of being great at many things. Sitting on its own, Pam can be used as a side table. Slide 4 Pams together and you have a larger coffee table configuration. But Pams true potential shines when you use the stacking feature to create a bookshelf or room divider. Thanks to Savage Design, Pam offers an unparalleled ability to adapt to a changing environment and allows the user imagination to decide on its use.

About Space, custom piece from the About Space 2by Range

About Space believes that lighting does more than illuminate a room. It’s the final touch to bring life to your space, elevating atmosphere, balancing design choices and enhancing your style. For the 2020 Design Hunter Package, About Space have contributed a custom piece from their 2by range, where minimalist style and sleek lines are the name of the game.

Top 3 By Design, Janua Stomp Coffee Table M and Linie Design Rug

It may look simple, but looks can be deceiving: The BC 05 Stomp is widely viewed as a leading light in the coffee and side table world. With the confidence and poise of a Buddha, this solid slice of tree trunk sits atop a sophisticated metal frame. The Stomp can perfectly complement seating in a variety of styles — providing a striking symbol of personal taste!

Thanks to Top 3 By Design, you’ll be able to pair your coffee table with a beautiful rug by Linie Design! A modern, Nordic look is woven into all their designs, though they constantly reshape, redefine, reinvent and recombine in the search of surprising expressions and surfaces.
