The 20th century was a golden era for contemporary design. The emergence of new technologies and manufacturing processes resulted in a flurry of innovation, with designers across the globe seeking to redefine the way we work and play. Amid the hive of innovation, there were many prototypes that were never realised, either due to technical impossibilities or for simply being ahead of their time.
Today’s luxury furniture manufacturers are now dipping back into the archives to release hidden gems from some of the 20th century’s finest designers and architects. From Arne Jacobsen through to Gio Ponti, these ‘lost and found’ designs have been revived by state of the art craftsmanship and of-the-moment colourways, enabling a new generation to fall in love with great design all over again.
