ECOround is a thermoformed panel with a strong geometric character. It is a particular scenic element, which can enhance its retro flavor according to the color choice of the wide palette, but it can also become a lunar element of abstract landscapes.  Available in two different versions, ECOround absorbs reverberation by porosity or membrane to ensure effective performance depending on the function of the space. Particularly suitable for retrofitting, it can be used in already existing false ceilings in order to redesign new areas. It has a harmonious shape even if it is applied to the wall, where it highlights three-dimensionality.


Designed by Studio Charlie, Eclipse is a collection of brushed stainless steel bathroom fixtures with a shiny, upper rotating element in polished steel. The characteristic opening and water adjustment controls swivel out of the vertical axis of the base, reminiscent of the moon eclipsing the sun.



The Couro Pod hanging lamp joins together six American palm leaves to create an evocative light fitting. The seams of the  sewn leaves are part of the design, lending the lamps a “skeletal” look, each one different and unique, an organic composition. The rounded form and its dimensions (40 cm in height) lend the pieces great character and presence. Perfect for living rooms, dining areas and other commercial uses like in lobbies, hotels and restaurants.


Crafted with precision and care, the Pebble Collection Fountains bring a sense of serene elegance to both gardens and  outdoor spaces. Hand-carved from blocks of green marble, onyx, jurassic, or bamboo marble, these fountains add tranquil  beauty to any space they adorn. Available in an array of shapes from vase and bulb to ovoid and teardrop, and sizes from 24–48 in. tall and weigh up to 3,500 lbs.


High-comfort meets high-functionality with Brisa, a brand re-release with recycled backcloth made of eight plastic bottles per yard of fabric. Diverse shades and a softly textured grain combine to work as vertical and horizontal paneling. The blended  backcloth is engineered with recycled REPREVE polyester fibers.

Beneath the stone top and wood case, this artisan-crafted modern bathroom vanity houses smooth, push-to-open drawers that give you plenty of storage.


The Evolution Collection from Bendheim offers softened lines of fluted texture in its Titanium-etched finish. The durable, maintenance-friendly material and its three-dimensional nature make Evolution ideal for a wide array of interior design roles. Its fingerprint-resistant surface is suited for wall cladding applications in high-traffic areas, while its gentle glow enhances the cleanest design. The fluted etched mirror maximizes light and reduces glare through diffused reflections. Available in silver, gray and bronze metallics as well as custom colors.


Riptide is an illustrative representation and interpretation of the way that water and sand can create unique shapes and patterns. To create the design, mosaic designer Jude Dahill used traditional pen and ink drawing as the base of the design and blended mixed media to achieve a balance between the bold linework and blending of the color gradients. The design is reminiscent of water flows and currents, large bodies of water, and sand dunes whose movements bring comfort. The collection’s original colorways are Ice in 1/2 in. vitreous glass, Turquoise in 1/2 in. vitreous glass, Graphite in 3/8 in. natural stone, and Desert in 3/8 in. natural stone but can be fully customized to feature any color story or tile type.


The Volcanic Shades of Marble are made of rock mineral changed by the heat, provoked due to contact with magma. The outcome is a distinctive tinged Yule marble appearance that contrasts with the unmasked porosity of the grey lava stone. The stools are available in five shades and three colors: red travertine marble, blue calcite and pineapple onyx. Dimensions for the stools stand at 16 x 12.9 x 16.9 in.; 13.2 x 13.2 x 16.9 in.; 14.9 x 14.9 x 15.9 in.; 13.7 x 13.7 x 17.1 in.; 9.8 x 9.8 x 19.8 in.

The spotlights and base of the glass spheres come in three different finishes: black, copper and gold.

Sandcastle is a fresh outdoor collection inspired by the fluctuating heights and cylindrical lines of a sandcastle. Composed of a series of tables, barstools and umbrella bases, the furniture is intended to be nested and grouped, naturally delineating outdoor lounge and dining rooms. An aluminum frame anchors the stools that are finished with a soft, integral foam seat providing elevated comfort in a tailored profile. Foam seats are water-resistant and highly resilient. Stools are also available with a powder-coated aluminum seat option. Tops are available in powder-coated aluminum, smooth fiberglass, porcelain, and engineered stone.


The Bolete BIO collection is the latest line from Patricia Urquiola, made of 100% natural origin BIO thermopolymer, and 100%recyclable, compostable and biodegradable material. Its ergonomic lounge chairs are reminiscent of mid-century design and pop culture, and the occasional table is meant to complement the seating, with an organic shape, expressive texture, and an eye-catching central base.


Rib Vault Light is modular lighting that recalls architectural rib-vaults which outlined the contours of a decorative ceiling or framed a preventive dome in church architecture. In the Vault Light, the form has been stripped to a minimum, a mere frame suspended in the air. Constructed from brass which can be either blackened or polished. The fixture hangs from a ceiling-mounted escutcheon plate. The light is made of brass, blown glass globes and LED bulbs. Size and shape are based on a triangular grid and are fully customizable.
