Name one thing about this bar stool that isn´t innovative. Whereas an ordinary bar stool is a clutter of components and materials, Miura manages with just one. And this is not just any material: reinforced, injection-moulded polypropylene is lightweight, strong and, equally important, inexpensive. With its curious, angular and, at first glance, rather uncomfortable looking form, Miura plays a starring role in the provocative oeuvre of Konstantin Grcic, a man whose universe has been the inspiration of many a fellow designer. Unlike others, however, Grcic is not all about form: the stool sits like a dream and is stackable in the bargain. A tour de force.

The Edo collection draws not only on Eastern influences, but also incorporates elements of Scandinavian and Shaker design. Playing with opposites like light and shadow, space and substance, this table brings all to rest in one satisfying whole. Splayed wedge feet contribute to the table’s remarkable stability. Four slatted legs converge at the bottom, allowing a parallelogram of air to visually float the table in space.David Moser

Somewhere between deco and Hollywood regency, the Luxe vanity in espresso-finish oak sports carefully placed accents of brushed nickel. The modern top-mount basin is carved from a single block of stone—either marble or luminous onyx—while removable trays customize the top two drawer.Walker Zanger

KADA is a transforming home product: stool, side table, and charging hub. The numerous modes and surfaces contrast the complexity of life against the simplicity of the product’s construction and assembly. It is designed for compactness, adaptability and flexibility. Technology has given us devices that are phones, MP3 players and cameras, all in a single unit. KADA reflects these changes, offering a simple form that suits multiple needs, offering multiple functions. The sturdy Kada can be used as a stool, table or tray. The hollow interior has built-in power slots.Yves Behar

The Duet washer and dryer reflects Whirlpool Corporation’s new visual brand language that was created to leverage the brand to create brand-appropriate user experiences. It uses geometry, intersecting lines and faceted surface help to convey a clean, crisp and fresh aesthetic to the consumer. The “water drop” shape of the door and control area was developed as a visual metaphor for clean and fresh. The bowed surfaces were used to create slightly feminine qualities with a gesture that appeared to cradle the clothes inside. In-house
