The collection is available for sale at the end of July 2019.
We are delighted to introduce a new club chair designed by London-based design studio Torsten Neeland. The chair is suitable for the contract market as well as for small spaces. Ottomans, coffee tables and an occasional table have been included in the collection in order to complement the entire picture of a setting where it might be necessary to host a large number of guests without visually overloading the space. As a special feature, a serving tray can be added to both small ottoman as well as the occasional table in order to provide hospitality. The dimensions, properties and radii have been carefully selected for the club chair to ensure that it is comfortable yet as small as possible. Torsten Neeland believes that objects suitable for smaller spaces are becoming increasingly more relevant in the metropolitan world where space is so valuable.
Torsten Neeland studied industrial design at the Hochschule für Bildende Künste in his hometown, Hamburg, before he opened his own studio in 1991. One of the first lights he
designed is the Cut (1991) lamp, which has been part of the ANTA program for 25 years
and is now one of their classics. His wall lamp Tank (2003) consists of a hidden, circular
fluorescent tube, which throws indirect light onto the wall surface. The intensity of the light
and the luminous field can be changed here so that it shines out either soft or bundled.
The Suspended Light (2016) with modern LED technology is one of his current designs, the
side reflectors of which produce different light effects. In the late 1990s, Torsten Neeland relocated to London. Since then, he has been one of the most sought-after German designers, internationally known as “new minimalists”. This design approach is also evident in the installation project Urban Nomads, which Torsten Neeland created with the fashion designer
Yohji Yamamoto. It is a counterpoint to the throwaway movement and is an expression
of timeless beauty. All designs, including the wardrobe Urban Normads 1 and 2 (2014), can
be dismantled without screws and tools and can be transported in a space-saving manner.
But the idea behind the objects is not a practical, but an emotional one—because Neeland’s
designs are meant to accompany us for years. At an interface between art and technology,
his designs of hybrid furniture were created in limited editions. An example of this is the Hall
Table (2004). A formally reduced wardrobe consisting of a console with four light sources
in its frame, producing an indirect light which illuminates the room in different colors and
acts like a light installation.
