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”.
