Another Country unveils Series Four collection inspired by Rietveld's iconic Red and Blue Chair
London Design Festival 2016: British brand Another Country has unveiled its fourth collection, which includes tables, seats and a daybed inspired by the work of early 20th century designer Gerrit Rietveld (+ slideshow).
Series Four is Another Country's first collection since 2013, and continues the brand's interests in traditional English kitchen furniture, Shaker elements and Japanese woodwork.
But the legs of several of the pieces are based on the joints used by Dutch designer Rietveld to create his iconic Red and Blue Chair.
Other references include the blocky architecture of canal-facing properties in Amsterdam.
"The strong, architectural form of the new collection combines cleated end tops, Rietveld-inspired leg frames and a stackable stool design, adding a new aesthetic language to the brand's portfolio," said Another Country.
It encompasses a dining table, bench, stackable low stool, bar stool and day bed. Each piece is available in solid and engineered, or lacquered oak. All are produced in a range of different sizes to accommodate different properties.
The collection is designed to meet growing demands for space-saving furniture.
For instance, the low seating bench is designed to slot directly and cleanly underneath the dining table to ensure no additional space is taken up.
Another Country was founded in 2010 by Paul de Zwart. The first three collections launched in 2010, 2011 and 2013 respectively, so this latest collection has been three years coming.
It launches at designjunction during this year's London Design Festival, and will be on show from 22 to 25 September.
Other designers launching products at the festival include Bert & May, which debuts a range of handmade tiles featuring simple geometric shapes, and Bethan Gray, who has designed brass-patterned furniture based on the architecture of Oman.
