Here's some more information from Established & Sons:

--

For the third year running the beautiful La Pelota venue in central Milan will become Established & Sons’ venue during Salone Internazionale del Mobile. This huge, ex-sports arena continues to inspire the creative minds of the company and provides the perfect location for its biggest show in the design calendar.

A total of 15 new designs will be launched here in April 2008. Some of these new and diverse products push material technology as well as the laws of physics, others contain elegance and humour whilst all have a very clearly defined and recognisable character. As always, design integrity is clearly evident and very much in keeping with the Established & Sons‚ philosophy and design dynamic.

The venue will also house Established & Sons’ most ambitious installation to date, where a colossal two-storey structure, effectively a building within Pelota itself, will be constructed out of 25 tonnes of steel. Entitled 4. because of its cubic design and also in recognition of the company’s fourth consecutive year in Milan, this 25m long, 6m high, 10m deep, open-plan, semi-transparent structure is of a breathtaking scale but in complete sympathy with the proportions of the building that contains it.

This vast, neutral architectural canvas is an ideal platform for the many richly contrasting design languages and exciting use of colour, form and scale that have become the hallmark of the Established & Sons brand. Within a total of 18 rooms and over a floor space of 450 sq metres, room sets and themed enclosures will provide an exploration into the many areas of Established & Sons’ creative activity, comprehensively and effectively.

It offers an exhilarating and inspiring view of a company that is just over three years old but so clearly committed and effective in the pursuit and nurturing of design excellence.

    It got better as I went down.
    I love Shay’s draw system!

    Some comments:
    The table: something similar has already been done by Arco/Bertjan Pot, but still I like this table.
    Crate serie: I never understood the whole crate concept It’s just as ‘stupid’ as the sqarelawn-chair by Maarten Baas (take something ordinary and produce it in a high quality materia and we call it DESIGNl).
    The “Stack” is the most compelling of them all, but i’m not overwhelmed by it anyway

    To be honest this collection didn’t meet my expectations.
