DesignedMade will launch the Tarantula Tea Light in white at the Pulse trade show in June.
The Tarantula was DesignedMade’s debut product and remains a bestseller for the brand.
The tea light holder is designed to cast graphic shadows evoking sunbeams when the candle is lit.
Individually beautiful, when grouped together they produce a mesmerizing effect with overlapping shadows creating complex and intricate forms.
DesignedMade founder and designer of the Tarantula Tea Light, Jonathan Krawczuk explains that it is the ideal time to produce this popular design in a new colourway: "The white finish on the Tarantula Tea Light adds an extra touch of elegance to the product, it really suits the strong linear form. Since we launched the Tarantula in 2009, we’ve had endless requests at trade shows and from customers for the product in white. We originally launched the Tarantula at Pulse so it seems quite fitting that it’s going to be the backdrop for this new release."
The Tarantula Tea Light is now available in white, black, red, yellow, green and blue powder-coated steel. Its sculptural aesthetic has made it a popular product and the new white version is a welcome addition to the family. Look out for the Tarantula (on stand LP7) at Pulse at Earls Court in London from 5-7 June.

The table designs are all inspired by an adapted ellipse. The new series of elliptical tables comprise models CH334, CH335, CH336, CH337, CH338 and CH339. With their original forms and clean lines, the tabletops investigate the possibilities of circular shapes, renewing the classical ellipse and providing excellent seating for all without annoying corners. The design concept also allows for a high degree of personalization: tables are available in three different lengths, in either solid wood (ash, beech, oak or walnut) or with stainless steel legs. All tables are available with tabletops in solid wood; tables with stainless steel legs are also available with tabletops in laminate or linoleum.
Carl Hansen & Son has cooperated with Wegner's Studio since 1949, and the Danish producer's respect for Wegner's oeuvre continues unabated. With the addition of the six new dining tables, Carl Hansen & Son extends its range of Wegner dining tables into yet another category.
Craftsmanship and quality are key focus areas for Carl Hansen & Son, and every piece of furniture is meticulously crafted with respect for its materials. The new dining tables are thus a lifelong investment in craftsmanship and design.
With their many material options, CH334, CH335, CH336, CH337, CH338 and CH339 provide design enthusiasts extraordinary opportunities to adapt Wegner's timeless tables to match their own individual decor and taste preferences. The new elliptical tables complete Carl Hansen & Son's already extensive table collection .The warm tones of the wooden tables are an elegant homage to the forest, the epitome of Scandinavian Living. And the streamlined stainless steel legs, together with understated laminate or linoleum, share minimalism's no-nonsense aesthetics.
Retail prices start at £2108.00

Anders Byriel, CEO of Kvadrat says: ‘The acquisition of Danskina offers fresh possibilities for Kvadrat in its strategy to further expand into the retail sector. Danskina’s ground-breaking designs and approach to producing contemporary high-quality rugs is equally aligned with Kvadrat’s own brand vision. We see great potential in the Danskina brand and are looking forward to developing the collection and expanding the international presence of the company’.
Today, the parties have signed a letter of intent in relation to the acquisition by Kvadrat and expect to complete the transaction by mid-June.

The company specializes in the design and development of exclusive made-to-order contemporary rugs, with guest textile designers like Ulf Moritz and Felix Diener, and has a customer base that includes retailers, architects and interior designers.
Piet van Eijken comments: ‘Having worked closely with Kvadrat since 1973 we have inspired each other and shared values ever since. It is a great pleasure therefore to give over the helm to my Danish friends’.
Kvadrat was established in Denmark in 1968 and now holds a leading position in the European market of design-textiles supplying renowned architects, designers and furniture manufacturers throughout the world, for use in upholstery and curtains. Kvadrat fabrics have been used in some of the world’s most famous architectural developments including The Gherkin – London, Museum of Modern Art – NYC, Walt Disney Concert Hall – Los Angeles, Reichstag – Berlin, Guggenheim Museum – Bilbao, Copenhagen Opera House – Denmark, Yves St. Laurent – Paris and the new Opera House in Oslo.
