Brooklyn, New York based UM Project released some really great new pieces of furniture at this years ICFF show. Milking Stools, Ray Chair, SMPL table, and U.M.O table/seat are all beautiful simple and clean designs that have UM Project‘s signature pops of bright color. The images are by photographer Francis Dzikowski / Esto.
Milking Stool comes in different woods (white oak, ash, teak, walnut), many matte lacquer finishes (natural, milk paint, gold-plated). The color either comes as a full paint job or as a duotone that contrasts beautifully with the wood.
Ray Chair is a simple yet beautiful seat built from solid ash with a Maharam quilted felt seat pad and back. An integrated handle on the back of the chair makes it easy to rag around and a button detail covers the connection point between the felt and the wooden frame.
The SMPL table comes with a Corian top, making it work equally as well in the kitchen as in the office, powder coated aluminum legs and a solid birch apron. The birch apron is mortised into the aluminum leg, adding a nice detail with the contrasting materials. The Images were shot at Causey Contemporary durning Norman Mooney’s Wall Flowers exhibition that I blogged about a while back.
U.M.O. table / seat
The U.M.O. table / seat is the most ambitious out of the new projects show at ICFF this years. A single piece of cast cork creates an amorphous that that can be tilted onto many different sides, each giving you a unique surface to sit on or put your drink on. A beautiful aluminum detail is added to give it a handle, a pop of color, or a place to store a few rolled up magazines.
