Equally suitable for indoor and outdoor use
is STAMPA, the new armchair that started a
new collaboration of the Spanish brand
with the French duo Ronan & Erwan
Bouroullec. STAMPA is made entirely of
aluminium incorporating various
manufacturing techniques. The main idea
was to create a chair that could assume the
passage of time and look worn over time,
just “like a pair of leather boots”, in the
word of the designers.

fabrics of the TERRAIN collection, a
design by DOSHI LEVIEN NEW!

The BOMA collection, designed by Rodolfo
Dordoni for KETTAL, was born from the need to
provide outdoor environments with smart high
performance furniture, without losing out on
comfort and style. Key piece of the structure is a
stream-lined aluminium frame that supports the
generous soft seats and is flexible enough to
easily allow different compositions and
LUCO & RAMBLA chairs by Martí Azúa NEW!
TUBE collection by
Eugeni Quitllet NEW!
The TUBE chair is a new creation
by Eugeni Quitllet for MOBLES
114. It features a soft design that
reaffirms its industrial origin with
lines that inspire movements,
humanization and even a hint of
humour. It seems as if has been
created freehand in the air – a
linear steel tube culminating into
a polypropylene seat.
Signed by young Lagranja Design
Studio, FORC is a multifunctional
wooden coat stand that is stable,
durable and suitable for home as well
as for offices, restaurants and bars.
Made of beech wood and steel,
the LUCO stool is a creation of
Martí Azúa. It combines cleverly
three essential features: the
traditional craft of woodturning,
cutting-edge technology and the
most genuine international
Another new creation by Martí
Azúa, RAMBLA is a metallic rib
chair conceptually inspired by the
chairs that fill one of the most
emblematic and lively streets of
Barcelona: La Rambla. Light and
stackable with armrests, the chair
is complemented by the square-
shaped RAMBLA table.
LITERATURA OPEN is a collection of mobile bookcases, sideboards and TV stands inspired by the classic and
legendary “La Literatura” bookcase. In the new version, the volumes of the bookcases are transparent and
even lighter, so that they can be complemented by storage units and be used as room partitions.
STOCKHOLM MEDIA represents a
natural evolution of the
sophisticated collection of
sideboards, consoles, shelves and
tables created by Mario Ruiz for the
brand and awarded with the
coveted Red Dot Award 2015. The
new line responds perfectly to the
PUNT aesthetics while integrating

Fruit of the collaboration with big
names of the design scene, MAJESTIC
is the latest fabulous collection of
SANCAL. It takes inspirations from
decorative styles from other periods;
but it brings them to new life,
avoiding an overwhelming idea of
luxury. This way, the company stays
true to its design principles of
sophistication and humour. In an
appealing way, the collection
combines different materials, colours
and textures: metallic colours, like the
vibrant copper details or the silvers;
soft, fur-like velvets; top-quality
leathers and the fine marquetry that
contrasts elegantly with the cool
elegance of marbles.
It includes the mini armchair
TONELLA, by the Swedish
design studio Note; the
outstanding MOSAICO range
by Yonoh, a set of tables and
seating solutions that can be
freely combined in a puzzle-
like manner; the VICHY dining
table by French designers
BrichetZiegler which boasts
beautiful marquetry works;
and the TIP TOE sofa by Rafa
García, based on simplicity
and functionality. New pieces
have also been added to the
COLLAR and NUDO families.

TREKU offers a line of sideboards, bookcases
and modular systems that make the most of
your living and dining room and bedroom
spaces, allowing different configurations and
incorporating unique and playful elements of
colour and intrigue. Among them, the
successful AURA and KAI collections,
designed by Angel Martín & Enrique Delamo
and Jean Louis Iratzoki respectively, plus a
new launch: the LAUKI modular collection
designed by Ibon Arrizabalaga.
The subtle beauty of the new LAUK collection comes from
the delicate half-centimetre frame that surrounds each
piece and encompasses the push-to-open drawers.
Although visually simple, these two elements constitute
the imaginative and decisive flair of the design as they can
come in different sizes and colours to ensure
personalization and visual impact. The collection includes
side tables, chest-of-drawers and chiffoniers available in
all TREKU’s ranges of wood and lacquers.
