US brand Blu Dot conceived the Method lounge chair as a "stellar medley of disparate elements" by imagining the main components of the chair as separate modules that are tied together by a skeletal frame.
The lounge chair is composed of an architectural powder-coated steel frame with thin armrests, a reclining backrest and a slim seat that comes in an array of upholstery options including leather and velvet.
Method was featured on Dezeen Showroom this week alongside products including a table lamp informed by the mountainous terrains of South Africa and a range of fabrics coloured using natural dyes from plants and minerals.
Read on to see the rest of this week's new products:
The chair, which is characterised by its bulbous form, is carved entirely from solid ash wood using CNC routers and is available in both clear or coloured lacquer finishes.
Each of the colour palettes have a low-VOC Breatheasy formula, which is 99.9 per cent solvent-free, meaning harmful fumes won't be emitted while the paint is drying.
The chair is composed of an upholstered shell seat that is angled at eight degrees onto the base with a tilted cutout backrest, which comes in two heights.
The rug, which is made from 100 per cent undyed natural wool, is handmade using an ancient flat-weaving technique that sees the weft and warp threads interweave to create a flat finish.
The design of the lamps, which are characterised by their sculptural forms and come in white stoneware and red terracotta, was informed by the rock formations found in the mountainous terrains located near Cape Town.
The new colour palette includes an array of vibrant hues including pastels and dark tones, in addition to the original six neutral shades, which are all made using natural dyes from plants and minerals.
The collection, which pays homage to traditional Mexican handicrafts, comprises two different styles of the synthetic fabric, which come in various colourways including neutral shades and warm reddish hues.
The chair is composed of a padded seat with two legs that form both the backrest and armrests. Each component of the chair can be recycled and reused to minimise waste.
Also designed by Urquiola for Cassina is the Sengu table, which takes cues from the mix of materials typically found in Japanese shrines.
The table is distinguished by the mismatch of oblong and cylindrical wooden legs and marble columns that support the tabletop, which is available in a round or oval shape.
The highly-customisable bed is available with a number of interchangeable features, including nightlights, a sofa or armchair, a chest of drawers and bedside tables.
The screen, which has now been put into production by Cassina, is composed of 313 wooden blocks that are linked via metal rods, which enables it to be easily adjusted to suit various interior spaces.
The table is composed of four tubular interlocking steel pipes, which come in matt black or orange, that sit under a clear glass tabletop that comes in a rectangular, square or round shape.
