In its September presentation, Hamilton Conte continues its theme from its earlier presentations in Paris and Milan this year, especially with its use of metal.
Metal remains, as always, an inspiration; cast and hammered metals imitate organic textures. The addition of a new Bronzenish for iron works as well as metallic fabrics integrating Copper and Titanium threads reinforces this theme.
A completely new fabric collection is being presented after a very successful two-year previous collection. As always, this tone on tone and texture on texture collection in five different chromatic ranges allows for interesting combinations in projects and an elegantly layered look.
The brand brings together rounded and structured forms in an elegant manner. The new Archibald sofa concept differentiates itself by its rather curved shape and demanding upholstery technique. The Fede lounge chair, making its Maison & Objet début, combines the angular and the curved in exacting precision. A reduced version of the popular Costanza chair is brought in, allowing the same comfort with a reduced footprint for more spatially constrained projects. Finally, and for seating, the rather elegant Penelope barstool is also being debuted.
In tables, a new series from the Pompeia range brings together wood with a gilt top in different sizes and shapes with side, coffee and dining versions. The Rafeala range introduces a “Mange-Debout” bar table. An extension side table from the successful Nymphéa range is introduced along with the rather coquette Agda side tables in brushed brass and enamelled iron. And of course, the new Tenoch sideboard is a highlight with its layered brass façade doors, which are acid treated for an organic edge to this rather structured piece.
Specially for Maison & Objet, the brand has completely reconfigured its space, playing on an augmented volume and a new layout.
