Made in Ratio presents Equilibrium at Fuorisalone 2017

Made in Ratio returns to via Palermo, in the heart of Milan’s Brera district to present Equilibrium for Fuorisalone 2017. 

Celebrating Made in Ratio’s fifth exhibition at the annual Italian design event, designer and founder Brodie Neill will take a week-long residency in a Milanese boutique to launch four new designs presented alongside some of the company’s most recognised pieces.

Neill will launch the Stellarnova table, an evolution of the award-winning and now iconic Supernova table, with its signature sculptural elegance and modularity.

The biomorphic forms of the elegant legs are inspired by nature and sand cast in recycled aluminium in the UK. Designed with a triangulated attachment point, each leg is self-supportive with the tabletop, reducing overall material and resulting in a more refined aesthetic. Completely modular, the legs can be positioned with tabletops of any shape and size. 

For Fuorisalone, Made in Ratio will launch Stellarnova with an environmentally sustainable bamboo multiply; more traditional tabletops in solid woods and stones will be added to the collection later in the year. 

The Elements Light will also make its debut at this year’s Fuorisalone. A triangular solid marble base, an elongated, bent, stainless steel mast and a linear LED tube bulb are carefully arranged to create a dramatic juxtaposition of the three materials. Each element of the design has a clear purpose: the triangular base provides stability; the elongation of the mast suspends an illuminated canopy, while the unobscured bulb allows for the maximum amount of light to radiate all 360 degrees.

A continuation of the Elements family, the Elements table unifies three distinct geometries to form one function. The simple arrangement of a solid marble base and top, united by a stainless steel stem creates a carefully reduced form that is both elegant and anthropomorphic in silhouette. The almost primitive geometry gives the table a nimble versatility whilst being able to mix and match the tones of marble allows it to suit any interior. 

Made in Ratio will also present the Alpha Leather, a new edition of its renowned solid-wood all-purpose chair, this time featuring a fine-leather seat pad for added comfort. The name Alpha is derived from the strong architectural gesture that gives the chair its inherent strength: the A shaped structure of the back legs and backrest. Bearing an almost seamless appearance in contrast to the more traditional joinery of chair design where each element is exposed, the chair organically and sensually moulds all the components into one.

Made in Ratio launches new Elements table at Biennale Interieur 2016

International furniture brand Made in Ratio by Brodie Neill makes its debut at the Silver Edition of Biennale Interieur with the Elements table.

Harnessing an acute sensitivity to materials through the juxtaposition of a marble base, a stainless-steel stem and a solid wood top, the Elements table unifies three distinct geometries to form one function.

Each material was carefully chosen for its inherent value, which best fulfills its function: the marble for its stability, the steel for its strength and the wood for its tactility. The arrangement of the materials creates a carefully reduced form that is both elegant and anthropomorphic in silhouette.

Available in an array of wood finishes and stone bases, the table can be customised to suit any interior.

"The Elements table is an exciting new addition to the Made in Ratio collection, continuing the brands quest in applying traditional furniture materials in contemporary form.  Each component of Elements utilises its unique material attributes applied to the stability, elevation and functionality of a simple yet charismatic table.  It’s almost primitive geometry gives the table a nimble versatility whilst being able to mix’n’match the tones of marble and stained oak to suit any need. 

Biennale Interieur has long been a favourite on the design calendar and I am pleased to be debuting new Made in Ratio designs as part of the silver anniversary edition"

Made in Ratio at FuoriSalone 2016

Made in Ratio created a moment of theatre at the Labo.art flagship store in Milan's Brera district. The tableau united the sinuous dynamism of Made in Ratio furniture with the minimal elegance of the Labo.art collection.

Our key focus at this year's FuoriSalone was the launch of the Cowrie Leather Chair. The gently folding monocoque structure features a moulded fine-leather seat-pad that mimics the contours of the chair's undulations.  Inspired by the concave lines of sea shells, the curvilinear form of the chair is the result of an extensive research and innovation process that bridges the handmade with the digital. 

Additional designs on exhibit comprised key pieces from the core collection including the Alpha chair, launched to great critical acclaim at FuoriSalone 2015 and the versatile Supernova desk.

Made in Ratio return to Maison & Objet in Paris 22-26 January 2016

Location: Stand B162, Hall 7 now! design à vivre

Dates: Friday 22 – Tuesday 26 January 2016

Opening Times: Friday to Monday: 9:30am - 7:00pm; Tuesday: 9:30am - 6:00pm

Following the success at the September edition of Maison & Objet, furniture brand Made in Ratio will return to Paris this January to present an updated collection by designer Brodie Neill.

The sculpturally dynamic installation featuring a three-tiered plinth made from Echo Panel, a completely reusable acoustic surface made from recycled PET plastic, will present three furniture ensembles.

Illustrating the versatility of the designs, the Supernova will be presented as both a high desk and a low coffee table, the Tetra modular shelving system will be showcased in a new configuration and stacked Alpha chairs will be displayed in multiple colourways and materials. The expanded Cowrie Collection will be presented including a Cowrie chair featuring a moulded fine-leather seat-pad that mimics the contours of the chair’s undulations. Made in Ratio will also introduce the Pleat bench, a graceful arch of thermoformed Corian, for the first time to the French market at Maison & Objet.

The collection presented at Maison & Objet will illustrate designer Brodie Neill’s ethos of researching and testing new possibilities of design and production and to fuse the precision of digital technology with the poetry of time-honoured materials and traditional craftsmanship.  By utilising advanced digital design, the products are imbued with a spirit of innovation and by working alongside some of the finest craftspeople in Europe and championing natural materials, the designs evoke an emotional connection that only products genuinely completed by hand conjure.

Designer and Creative Director Brodie Neill comments: “We were very pleased with the incredible response our debut presentation received at the recent September edition of the Fair. We look forward to returning to Paris later this month to have the opportunity to present a more dynamic installation and an expanded collection, which shows our commitment to innovative materials and environmentally sustainable design while maintaining a high level of style and quality”.
