  • It's all in the detail

1- Anna G, design Alessandro Mendini, Alessi
The Italian manufacturer celebrates its famous corkscrew's 20th birthday with a special limited edition that underlines its status as a table sculpture by giving it a tribal dance mask.


2- Babel, design Roberto Lazzeroni, Poltrona Frau
A compact, mobile bit of luxury kit. Four castors make this leather-covered bar unit easy to move around so you can create an elegant corner for relaxing and socialising wherever you fancy.


3- Traveler, design Stephen Burks, Roche Bobois
To mark its 40th Stateside anniversary, Roche Bobois felt it should work with an American designer. The result is a slim tubular frame in lacquered steel, inspired by Fifties European design.
