Aboutwater by Boffi and Fantini
Dutch seating designer and manufacturer arianeSké began with a straightforward mission: to bring comfort back to high-end seating. The polished wooden backing of the Joy bar chair gives it a distinguished look.
Leave it to Cory Grosser to blend the best of precision—through geometric details and ease—in a curved silhouette. Grosser's design of the Astra lounge chair for Bernhardt is suited to a variety of aesthetically different spaces.
Brendan Ravenhill's Beam light fixture responds to the efficiency and casting power of LED lighting with style. Beam makes use of bounced and refracted light to create a soft glow, in a strong linear silhouette.

A distinguished collection of porcelain slabs, The Room collection by Imola Ceramica for Ceramics of Italy exudes drama and luxury. The four available patterns are inspired by exquisite marbles from three continents, with suitable applications ranging from flooring to walls and custom countertops.
A sleek, no-contact faucet is the stuff of culinary enthusiasts' dreams. Kohler Konnect immerses users in experiential luxury, with the best of good design and intelligent technology.
