Check in every weekday to see which product we are giving away that day. You may enter to win every single one.

We’re well into our second week of fabulous giveaways (check out past posts or our Twitter and Facebook feeds to see what you’ve missed, because they are all up for grabs until we complete our drawing on December 15, 2014). Today’s prize is a REALLY good one, it’s the Lagos Chair from Loll Designs. My favorite feature is his handy wineglass stem holder:

This chair is comfy, can actually seat two people (who are comfortable sharing personal space with each other  like that) and is made from 100% recycled and recyclable materials. It can stand up to the elements and you on too much Cabernet.

Stellar Designers: Patricia Urquiola

Lately it seems every light fixture or chair that catches my eye was designed by the fabulous Patricial Urquiola. Urquiola is a Spanish designer of many talents; she’s an architect, she designs exhibitions, she speaks at conferences and her furniture and lighting designs are well on their way to icon status. She’s collaborated with the most pre-eminent furniture manufacturers in the world, creating artistic, thoughtful and most importantly, highly functional products, from rugs to sofas, and side tables to outdoor furniture. Her use of the latest technologies and materials provides the function, while her imagination informs the form.

Her artful approach and dedication to function makes her designs stand out; one of the first ones I fell for is the wonderfully loopy Re-Trouvé chair. Available in a wide range of bright powder coated colors, the designs combine Urquiola’s contemporary sensibilities with some whimsical nostalgia.

Re-Trouvé High Back Chair

“Inspiration came from the marvelous icon chairs of the ’50’s, so full of curls and doodles. I wanted to create new models which would bring together a re-interpretation of this old fashioned design with a more humorous twist, produced with numerical control technology,” she says.

The line, produced by Italian manufacturer Emu and distributed by Coalesse, also includes this eclectic stool/ottoman.

Last Minute Stool

Coalesse is also distributing Urquiola’s Last Minute Stool, a streamlined and ergonomic piece that comes in counter and bar height. The seat is made of flexible steel and covered in leather; the legs are sleek chrome.

I am so happy that Design Public is carrying these stellar pieces from a superstar like Urquiola. We also carry a few items she designed in partnership for Kartell, including the flirty and strong Frilly Chair:

as well as the clever Matelasse Vase:

I look forward to seeing what she come up with next, and I’ll keep you posted when I find out!
