Earlier this year, multidisciplinary design
studio Yabu Pushelberg inaugurated its
New York gallery and showroom with an
immersive rainforest-themed installation.
Amid the mossy mounds and screens of
woodland trees, its new, naturalistic range
of ‘Puddle’ tables for Italian furniture
brand Henge stole the limelight. As the
name suggests, the coffee tables aim to
mimic the movement and unpredictable
forms of a pool of water. Produced using
a sandcasting technique, the tables come
in three designs, with silver, bronze and
brass finishes, but the handmaking process
means each piece is unique.

‘INTERLUDE CABINET 02’
Its austere bronze façade partly clad in
concertina stacks of hand-folded burgundy
leather, this cabinet opens to reveal drawers
and shelving in a rich Carpathian elm burl,
with a mirror and simple brass finishes.
It is grounded by six industrial brass legs.

Handcrafted in Portugal, this freestanding
mirror has all the modernist, block-heavy
characteristics of an Ellsworth Kelly painting.
A lacquered back panel offsets the brass-
edged mirror with sleek asymmetry, while
the whole is supported by a solid onyx foot.

A luxury sleeping spot with the
aerodynamic lines of a sports car,
the ‘Coupé’ cuts a sophisticated dash
in the bedroom. Poltrona Frau’s
Pelle Frau leather upholstery encases
the frame, creating a soft, muted finish.
