Building on the success of their Series One collection, Another Country celebrates its first anniversary with the launch of Series Two; this collection of furniture is a purposeful departure from the aesthetic of Series One. It is constructed from pale ash and rich walnut, with metal detailing, and makes use of clean, angular shapes. Although different in form, Series Two upholds the values of the brand and is therefore a further celebration of quality craftsmanship; the series, just like Series One, is hand-made in Another Country’s Norfolk and Dorset workshops. Series Two is also cleverly designed for easy transport: all leg systems fold inward, trestle-style, whilst the sideboard can be dismantled and flat packed. The new range of furniture includes a dining table, benches, a coffee table and sideboard.

After a long period of careful development, Another Country is very pleased to introduce its first chair. The chair has been designed to complement the Series One collection of furniture and has been designed by young German design talent Mathias Hahn. Hahn is renowned for his functional yet playful approach to product design and has achieved a wonderful chair for Another Country that is robust, functional yet equally charming and individual. Mathias has previously collaborated with Another Country on the design of Desk One and Bar Stool One.

In a move intended to extend their offering to objects for the home, two new accessories ranges are being launched at designjunction, both of these are designed by young British designers and both are manufactured in the UK.

Simon Donald has designed a handsome and hard-working desktop accessories range that consists of a pen holder, a tape dispenser, an eraser pot and a pencil sharpener. The range is made of lime wood in a Welsh workshop. Simon has also designed a Series One-inspired desk clock that will be presented alongside the desktop accessories.

The second accessories range consists of a beautiful pottery collection designed by Ian McIntrye. Designed, crafted by hand and fired in Ian’s kilns in Hackney, East London, the range is a carefully considered reworking of traditional, functional, table top ceramics. The collection is made up ofindividual pieces that each explore the qualities of different clays. It includes a jug, pinch pot, plate, bowl and cup. The clays used include industrial terracotta, stoneware and porcelain. The collection is a fine interpretation of Another Country’s concern with contemporary craft; each piece is entirely hand-made, multi-functional and designed to endure, both stylistically and practically.
