We weren’t lucky enough to attend Design Miami/ Basel this year, however we were quick to notice Philippe Malouin’s ‘Industrial Office’ for Salon 94 Design appearing in our feeds. Malouin, a former Wallpaper* Designer of the Year, is a London based Canadian designer with a vast portfolio of clients from Matter Made and Marsotto Edizioni, to Roll & Hill and Aesop. ‘Industrial Office’ is as pragmatic and true as its name suggests; an in-depth study of office furniture, fabricated using a variety of industrial materials and techniques. Despite the collection’s utilitarian solidity, familiar forms and primary colours elicit a certain playfulness. We were immediately taken by the Nylon Executive Desk and its self-lubricating, track-free drawer system. See it in motion here. That effortless glide! Other designs in the complete executive office suite include a sideboard, pen pot, book ends and even a phone. Photography courtesy of Salon 94 Design.
