Purewhyte has just launched three new products during the Milan furniture Fair in April, as part of the Hidden Art Stand in the SaloneSatellite. The Drew Occasional tables, Array Bowls and Tuffet Stacking Stools and table will make their UK debut at this year’s Pulse, Earls Court London June 6th – 8th Stand LP75 Where Purewhyte returns to Launchpad after receiving the Liberty award for Best Newcomer in 2009.
These new tables are an extension of the Drew range launched in Spring 2009. They use the same handwriting and manufacture process; made from one continuous piece of recycled steel rod. Meaning minimal material is wasted in production. The forms have been pared down, making an even purer form. They are smaller, lighter so it can sit with any contemporary environment. Manufactured by Automated Wire Bending Limited. They are made from steel and glass, and available in white, gray, and black.
Each Array bowl is made from one single piece of folded sheet steel. So there is very little waste from production. The Spring/Summer colors of aqua, white and magenta add a refreshing punch of color to any table top. Soon to also be available in a stainless steel finish. They are ready for production.
Tuffet Stacking Stools and Table
The very first prototype to be launched at Milan 2010. The stools are made from sawdust and resin, from a process in its infancy developed by Turners and Moore and Purewhyte. The Sawdust and resin mix is molded under high pressure and heat. The resulting material can then be worked and finished like timber. This process uses a material that would usually be thrown away; using a mold also means a larger shape can be made with less wastage in comparison to solid timber. The complete set of three stools and a small table can be stacked away and also used as a side table.
