eo has an open design, which makes many individual solutions possible. It is built up using two basic elements: square door container and rectangular container in two different depths.
It is up to you to decide how you would like to combine these with one another, and you can either place them against the wall or hang them on it.
The clarity and transparency of the room divider makes it an elegantly reserved structure.
The different options for subdividing the compartments show that eo is not only beautiful but also highly functional. The door containers for example can be equipped with bottle racks or straightforward glass shelves.
Variable dividers provide the perfect home for glasses and tableware, cutlery, bottles and CD's.
Perfect down to the smallest detail, whether in terms of the easy-to-use light remote control or the accuracy of fit and quality of all the glass and aluminum components.

One should always look at things from both sides. All the more gratifying when both are perfect.
With center you can play any angle - up to 270°, that is. Other than that, center is a room divider unit that may be installed anywhere you want it.
Sound and vision: with center as a base for stereo equipment and CD rack. The back panel is perforated metal and provides ample ventilation for TV or computer units.
SYSTEM X is a combination of the industrial materialisation and polymerisation of individual products, modularised into a "system" that is structural, flexible in application and above all, totally innovative in its enhancement of interior space.
A single "X" module can be configured to achieve ordered geometries from modules of 2 to 3 up to large horizontal or vertical planes of infinite number relating to architectural planes.
The system has taken several years to evolve and its industrial refinement, economy and logic of installation make a highly considered and modern lighting solution, benefiting from state of the art electronic technology, uniquely developed for this product.
The product can be specified both for private and public use, beginning with small dimmable con-figurations for above the dining table or conference room to large open expanses that can create zones of different temperatures of light in collective or singular modules.
A multifunctional element range. You can zip a number of the same element together until you have the longest sofa in the world. That way you can always find a new arrangement for your room. de Sede's own combination of both supportive and down-soft upholstery gives this variable sofa, the legendary de Sede sitting comfort.

The new Girotondo originates from the idea to liase Vico Magistretti´s passion for simple objects with Alessandro Mendini´s desire to recreate them in an innovative way, as he re-designed the Tondo armchair designed by Magistretti. Girotondo is proposed with a cover in printed Trevira fabric designed by Mendini, in order to propose the armchair both for home and Contract projects.
The home is space, movement, play. It is the mirror of ourselves, of our frailties, of our desires. The home is light. Light that glows and illuminates. Light that furnishes.
LaLinea is soft, curious, unobtrusive light. LaLinea is furniture, complement, elegance. It is a sign of light and colour, to be outlined at pleasure - breaking up the uniformity of the surfaces.
Designed by the young architect, Andrea Marcante, La Linea is a bookshelf system of modular elements that offers the possibility of making up original horizontal or vertical structures, from wall to wall or from floor to ceiling.
Different coloured lights can be alternated freely: each module is lit internally by a fluorescent bulb in the four preferred colours white, yellow, blue and green. The external structure is in metal painted with aluminium-coloured epoxy powders. The internal separators are in opalescent bi-satined methacrylate.
A modular upholstered collection with an original pyramid line that comprises flanks an unusual proposal to the traditional pieces: a daybed with an internal mechanism operated by remote control that produces a gentle vibration to massage the whole body or specific parts of it. The base always has a shiny aluminium finish. The covers in fabric or leather are fully removable.

A sofa-bed with a multiple personality: Wing is, in fact, a multifaceted product. Depending on the arms you choose. Indeed, three different types of arm are the hallmark of this divan that can be transformed into a bed with a few simple movements. Alongside a arm with a completely classic form taking up a minimum of space, Wing can be accompanied by two choices of “bridging” arms, of different widths and below which comfortable and very practical poufs can be placed. When necessary these can be pulled out and used as seats or as occasional tables and even equipped with steel or wooden trays. The result: a product that makes a clear statement and one that is, at the same, highly individual and, undeniably, a new way of conceiving of the function of the arm. The seat section of Wing is formed of a single upholstered unit as does the back.
Wing's frame is in wood. The seat and back upholstery are in expanded polyurethane covered with termofalda. The opening for turning the divan into a bed is in the front. The base, practical and easy to manage, is electrically welded; the spring mattress measures 200 x 15h cm. The different armrests have bayonet hooking. Wing covers are all removable.

Female, plural. Female because the bed is soft, sensual, French. Plural because there are two elements composing the bedroom: a bed and a low container. A song in praise of slowness. The slow time we choose to spend in our beds is different from the fast time that others demand of us.
Space envisaged as a creative unit, a rhythmic and harmonious whole, a dynamic element. These are the terms in which Niki, hitherto designed for the day-time areas, expresses itself in the bedroom, characteristically rigorous, solid, right-angled while generating the sensations offered by soft and inviting fabrics.
While the wood, the painted surfaces, the rich fabrics constitute its material self, the spiritual reality of Niki Night resides in the versatility of the design, capable of being assembled and recomposed, with elements added or subtracted, free-standing or accompanied, raised or lowered.
Bed, bedside tables, headboards, drawer units, containers, poufs are chest-ofdrawers natural and exhaustive variations within a single interpretative key, whose aim is to expand the concept of space and ist internal structures.
Niki Night is a design which is structured, many-sided and varied, one physically and mentally recreating the night-time mood. Even during the day.
Designer William Brand Annet van Egmond
