- Exclusive piece – Limited edition collection available until late 2016
- Exciting collaboration – Second rejuvenation of classic 1940s Jean Prouvé collection from Vitra and G-Star RAW
- Industrial meets contemporary – Irresistible combination of old and new
Staying true to the original aesthetic of Jean Prouvé's classic designs, the Vitra Prouve RAW Office Edition Bahut offers retro style with modern-day ergonomics – a sleek, sliding door and adjustable inner shelving. Made from solid oak and powder-coated steel, this heavy-duty sideboard references the sage green of industrial machinery, appealing to those with a vintage taste. What's not to love?
Diesel with Moroso Perf Credenza
- Attractive colours and materials – Verdigris and punchy red make the perfect match with perforated metal doors
- Every bit rock 'n' roll – Moroso's traditional craftsmanship meets Diesel's alternative edge for a design that's effortlessly cool
- Mid-century appeal – Reminiscent of 1950s modernism
If the Diesel with Moroso Perf Credenza was a person, then it would definitely be in a rock band. With a rugged, industrial aesthetic, you'd expect this sideboard to be of a heavy weight, but it's actually surprisingly lightweight – no problems with maneuvering here. The inside is softened with simple wood shelving, which can be utilised however you wish. The 'Perf'ect Credenza.
E15 SB02 Farah Sideboard
- Quality materials – Manufactured by E15, the masters of wood
- Elegant design – Smooth European wood finish and subtle brushed stainless steel legs
- Simple storage – One inner shelf for flexible storage configurations
Every E15 product is highly distinguishable from the masses and that's thanks to the quality and utilisation of the wood that is used for production. The E15 SB02 Farah Sideboard is no exception, which is available in contemporary oak or walnut. Each detail is carefully considered, from the adjustable foot leveller to the soft-close hinges on the doors. Impeccably designed.
Carl Hansen CH825 Credenza
- Mid-century chic – Relaunched design from the 1950s to mark designer Hans J. Wegner's 100th birthday
- Advanced ergonomics – Robust roller shutter doors hide within the body of the sideboard to save space
- Made for you – Adjustable inner shelving and pull-out drawers allow for a variety of configurations
We're always excited when a classic is brought back to life for the modern market, as the subtlety of the changes demonstrates just how timeless great design can be. The Carl Hansen CH825 Credenza was relaunched in oiled walnut instead of rosewood and teak, but apart from that, not much else has changed. The design features simple inner shelves and pull-out drawers that are ideal for documents or papers – one for the office maybe? One of CH&S' greatest successes.
