The “Buff” and “Cerco” by Karlsson and Churba

Like every year, the Milan Design Week is an opportunity for Hi-Macs to unveil new creations. Prominent at the show this year, are two collections by Karl Andersson & Swedish Söner.

The first collection is the “Buff”, a series of tables inspired of vintage design by Joel Karlsson. A refined design, with a careful combining of noble species like ash, oak, birch, and walnut.

The second collection is the “Cerco”, a shelf designed by Argentinian, Federico Churba. The Cerco offers a graphic game that is ambivalent and positioned in the same direction. The elements provide a linearity to the room for more serenity. In the opposite way, they reveal a more chaotic atmosphere.
