THE SOURCE // HORM.IT
If you’re unfamiliar with the Italian design house and manufacturer Horm.IT you better get familiar. And quickly. Renowned for unique, sculptural furniture styles, partnerships with some of the world’s leading architects and designers, and an attention to quality that makes each piece they produce an instant heirloom, they certainly cover the bases.
With a decidedly modern aesthetic, linear forms, futuristic design, and materials with an industrial edge, Horm.IT speaks volumes about it’s curated sensibility. Here are a few of our favorites from Horm.IT.
IKON TABLE // This minimalist dining table made its debut at this spring’s Wanted Design Fair in New York City. The brainchild of New York-based designer Marc Thorpe, the IKON table’s hairpin legs and streamlined top are meant to exhibit “as little design as possible.”
BLA AND BLABLA // BLA and BLABLA are the tongue-in-cheek names for an arm chair and sofa (the name is a nod to conversation seating) designed in 2014 by Italian design duo Meneghello Paolelli Associati. We needn’t say more………
QUADROR 02 // New York City-based architect and product designer Dror Benshetrit, principle of Studio Dror is behind the QuaDror 02 table, another new piece for Horm this year. The table is part of the QuaDror series, which is based on the unique structural support that, in this case, serves as the table legs.
PLYWOOD CHANDELIER // Created by architect Steven Holl for Horm in 2011, the Plywood Chandelier features a laser cut wood-fabric material that’s folded, origami style, in a process patented by Horm. Besides being beautiful in its own right, the fixture’s LED bulbs cast shadows through the cutouts, throwing pattern around the room when lit.
