Skandium is looking forward to hosting the UK launch of NARA, a furniture collection by multi award-winning Japanese designer Shin Azumi for Frederica, Denmark.
Frederica celebrates its Centenary in 2011 and to mark this special anniversary Frederica has chosen Shin Azumi to design a collection of furniture. The range reflects Danish crafts traditions while at the same time adding the flair of Japanese elegance. The collaboration with Frederica, who has a long tradition of working with accomplished designers, has resulted in a collection, which encompasses the ethos of both Japanese and Danish design, remaining sleek, simple and timeless.
The Nara furniture range was born out of a desire to create comfortable furniture from a simple wooden structure. The range is named after Japan's ancient capital Nara and seeks much of its inspiration from its free-roaming, sacred deer for which it is famous.
Nara comprises dining chairs with and without upholstered seats, a dining table and a coat stand.

Dedicated key account managers will be on hand to devise a bespoke marketing strategy tailored to your business, and the new location specific issues will maximise readership potential throughout the North.
Rebecca Drake magazine editor since November 2007 said: “Exciting times are ahead. We are all eager to launch our new look title, which will be a huge benefit for our wonderful readers and also our valued advertisers. I’m looking forward to seeing everyone at the launch party!”

Infact, the upholstered seating and back are manufactured by means of a single mould operation which furthermore allows combining the two fundamental factors for a chair: the seating softness and chair lightness.
Wafer comes with an open grain lacquer finish, grey oak, dark oak, wenge and American walnut. The seat and back are upholstered in a dedicated range of ecological fabrics and leathers. The fabrics and ecologicial leathers used are all stain resistant and suitable for superficial cleaning.

Adrenalin takes its cue from “liquid fluidity” forming a convergence of graceful, fluid lines and an adrenalin rush which breathes life into the soul of the fabric. The swirling, seductive laces of deep dyed colour provide a perfect tone on tone complement to the beautiful sheen of the fine worsted ground shade.
“In these more muted colourways I see Adrenalin being applicable to hotel environments and working perfectly with natural wood finishes on hospitality orientated furniture,” says David. “In combination with other Camira ranges they will add an air of channeled energy to more corporate interiors”

David Fox Design is pleased to announce its lastest venture into fabric design, at this years Orgatec Nuna was launched in collaboration with Camira Fabrics.
Inspiration for the angular design of Nuna is taken from “Nunataks”, stunning mountain peaks whose jagged ridges protrude from dramatic ice fields below.
The repetitive echo of stepped inclines becomes more subtle in shade as they silhouette into the distance, enhanced by the combination of three refined weaves.“The pattern of Nuna has the ability to make simple uncluttered shapes become more texturised. It has a very retro feel and tactile quality, particularly in the greens which remind me of the different shades and textures you see in different kinds of moss”
