Shape up Designed by relatively young studio Nava+Arosio, for Italian brand Rubelli Casa, the playful geometry of these Pablo Piano tables is inspired by the paper art of origami. The sculptural pieces in polyurethane are available in turquoise, cream, oxide red and grey matte lacquer finish. There are also versions with cushion tops covered with Rubelli fabrics that can be coordinated with other items in the Piano Collection, creating a play on different height effects.

Laying around Make a colourful statement with this contemporary rug designed by London-based design duo Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby. The design can be interpreted in many ways... perhaps you see buildings and skyscrapers jostling for space, inspired by living in Dubai. Or you may see the fingers of coral reefs reaching out to explore; and with coral being Pantone’s colour of the year, the rug is an even better fit for our homes.
