Trail Table by Lapalma

TRAIL includes a range of table sizes, from classic round tables to impressively large meeting tables, and its components can be disassembled for easy recycling, emphasizing the focus on sustainability made by Lapalma.
Plauto Maxxxi by Miniforms
Paolo Cappello and Simone Sabatti designed the Plauto Maxxxi, which features Italian-style conviviality with a graceful design that is suitable for traditional family gatherings or contemporary corporate meetings; the table's imposing stature is balanced with pure wood elements, and its top can reach up to 6 meters in length, accommodating everyone at the table.
Bamboo Forest by Brokis
The Bamboo Forest is a unique lighting collection designed by Fumie Shibata, inspired by the vertical contours of bamboo stands, with hand-sculpted glass forms that create the soft accent of subtle shadows; the collection offers six different variants of lights that can be combined to create original compositions or single-point accent lighting in interior spaces, enhanced by the innovative BROKIS connector that simplifies installation, maintenance, and cleaning.
Civitas Bookshelf by Midj
Designed by Giulio Iacchetti, Civitas is a modular system composed of extruded aluminum joints and shelves in lacquered MDF or aluminum, available in two different widths and usable within the same configuration for both vertical and horizontal growth; the system requires wall fixing and bracing for shelves, and its name is a metaphor for the city that grows neatly on the matrix of the Roman camp, allowing the bookshop to also grow and transform.
Raquette by Billiani
The Raquette collection, designed by Cristina Celestino, pays homage to the ancient technique of intertwining wooden slats, taking inspiration from the world of tennis through its sides that resemble racquet strings with textured latticework within the frame, while the wooden structure and soft organic cushioning combine in perfect harmony to assure exquisitely contemporary comfort.
Canarie Basket by Pinetti
Canaria is a brand new family of baskets available in different sizes that can be used as a magazine holder, blanket or shoes holder, or simply as a decorative piece. These hand-woven baskets, made of eco-friendly leather and available in more than 15 shades, are perfect for both indoor and outdoor use and the generous round basket is ideal for storing beach towels, sandals, or shoes, making it a valuable addition to a patio, poolside, or yacht.
Nebula by Miniforms
E-ggs designed Nebula, which has a dense and enveloping design, but is lightened by slender lines towards the blue. Nebula is composed of a chair, armchair, and lounge, each with different types of bases to adapt to any type of landing, and the shell is made exclusively of fire retardant and totally recyclable polyurethane material.
Lusto Stool by Lapalma
The LUSTO stool, designed by Karri Monni, takes inspiration from the observation of the roots that unite to form the trunk of a plant, hence the name LUSTO, which in Finnish indicates the circles on the trunk of a tree. The stool's legs rise upwards until they converge to reach the seat, which presents an original rounded square shape, while the footrest, in painted metal, takes up this profile.
Lilly Box by Pinetti
The Lily collection features sophisticated cylindrical decorative boxes covered in fine taupe leather and adorned with tone on tone embroidery. Available in two finishes, three sizes, and five nubuck colors, it provides a luxurious storage solution for jewelry essentials.
Planum Table by Midj
The Planum Table, designed by Studio Pastina, is a fixed table with a four-legged base and a stained ash wood structure. It features a variety of rectangular tops in different materials, including ash veneered wood, glass, crystalceramic or marble, and stands out with its simple and linear lines.
Elo Pendant by Brokis
Designer Filippo Mambretti's Elo is an innovative suspension light that blends BROKISGLASS textures with elegant aluminium framing. The light's three articulated arches, with the outer two adjustable, provide a variety of striking scenographic compositions that can shape the interior and lend it a dominant design element, while flexible LEDs follow the curvature of the arches to produce a charming diffusion of light.
Kami Stool by Lapalma
Superpop Coffee Tables by Miniforms
Superpop has turned recycling and color into an art form, resulting in a supersustainable, superlight, and supercool coffee table, bedside table, and stool. Made from recycled and recyclable plastic, the coffee tables come in four colors, including Super White, Super Red, Super Blue, and Super Black, and are designed with a green, circular approach that reduces their environmental impact while maintaining their characteristics.
