It’s that time of the thirty day period – time for my newest ‘On My Radar’ put up. In this article I’ve rounded up a selection of new product or service launches and basic home furnishings finds that have caught my eye in the previous thirty day period or so. There is almost everything from common spindle back again chairs and relaunched retro types, to rattan tents and dollhouses for young children.
The Windsor chair by Frits Henningsen, relaunched by Carl Hansen & Søn
Carl Hansen & Søn has relaunched the Windsor chair by Danish architect Frits Henningsen. The common spindle back chair was earlier in production until eventually 2003 and this yr has been offered a refresh with a new snug seat cushion.
Soon after finishing his cabinetmaker apprenticeship in Denmark, Henningsen traveled around Europe and took inspiration from French home furniture, Rococo structure and 17th century British household furniture. Henningsen’s sophisticated, beautifully crafted Windsor Chair is made of sound oak with a high, sculptural back produced of two steam-bent pieces. The carpentry needs the competencies of a extremely professional joiner – the 14 a little bit sloping spindles all have different angles and are tightened collectively at the similar time without having the want for glue. The chair is then sanded and completed by hand.
A vintage that can healthy in equally conventional and present-day residences.

Rey collection by Bruno Rey for Dietiker, in collaboration with HAY
When I initial listened to news of this collaboration, my first considered was – I need to have this chair in my lifetime. I just really like the tactile curved condition of the again. Very first created by Bruno Rey for Dietiker in 1971, this retro chair has been set back into distribution by Danish brand name HAY and I’m absolutely sure it is likely to be well known.
Swiss designer Rey was identified for his love of natural and organic kinds and was claimed to be impressed by the Thonet bentwood chair when he started experimenting with wooden. For the Rey chair, he established a self-supporting round seat that attaches to the legs through an innovative, screw-less, wood-to-steel link. This was in the beginning handmade employing sand casting but by the late Eighties, aluminium tension die casting intended that the full system could be accomplished by device and the chair could be mass created.
For the copy, HAY have modified the seat top a bit to go well with modern demands, and released a sequence of bold new colours (I specifically like the smooth inexperienced). The collection also incorporates a stackable stool, a bar stool, a spherical coffee desk and eating table.
