It is that time of the month – time for my most up-to-date ‘On My Radar’ submit. Listed here I have rounded up a collection of new merchandise launches and basic furniture finds that have caught my eye in the last thirty day period or so. There’s every thing from common spindle back chairs and relaunched retro styles, to rattan tents and dollhouses for 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 basic spindle back chair was earlier in production until eventually 2003 and this year has been provided a refresh with a new cozy seat cushion.
After completing his cabinetmaker apprenticeship in Denmark, Henningsen traveled about Europe and took inspiration from French home furniture, Rococo layout and 17th century British furniture. Henningsen’s exquisite, fantastically crafted Windsor Chair is created of reliable oak with a large, sculptural back again created of two steam-bent components. The carpentry demands the competencies of a hugely professional joiner – the 14 a little bit sloping spindles all have diverse angles and are tightened together at the exact time without the need for glue. The chair is then sanded and concluded by hand.
A common that can match in equally common and contemporary properties.

Rey selection by Bruno Rey for Dietiker, in collaboration with HAY
When I 1st heard information of this collaboration, my initial imagined was – I need to have this chair in my life. I just appreciate the tactile curved form of the back again. Very first made by Bruno Rey for Dietiker in 1971, this retro chair has been place back again into distribution by Danish manufacturer HAY and I’m absolutely sure it is going to be well known.
Swiss designer Rey was recognized for his appreciate of natural kinds and was reported to be inspired by the Thonet bentwood chair when he commenced experimenting with wooden. For the Rey chair, he established a self-supporting round seat that attaches to the legs through an revolutionary, screw-less, wood-to-metallic link. This was originally handmade working with sand casting but by the late Eighties, aluminium strain die casting intended that the whole approach could be accomplished by equipment and the chair could be mass manufactured.
For the reproduction, HAY have adjusted the seat peak a bit to accommodate present-day needs, and introduced a sequence of bold new colors (I especially like the tender environmentally friendly). The collection also involves a stackable stool, a bar stool, a spherical espresso desk and eating desk.
