arper


Italian furniture manufacturer Arper was established in the late 1980s by asking some important questions: Is an object as elemental as a chair or a table still subject to insight or innovation? After eons of development, is there still something to be done? Arper’s answer: Absolutely. Everything is in flux – life, culture, technology – and that basic fact demands a considered response… good design is a synthesis of technique, cost, material, function, use, taste and sustainability. This dialogue has led Arper to embark on years of experimentation in which the manufacturer has continuously expanded its product range with new types of seating from innovative materials such as aluminum and polypropylene using advanced production techniques. Switch Modern has highlighted one of our favorite designs from Arper – its iconic Leaf collection of weather-resistant chairs, chaises, and lounge chairs, designed by Lievore-Altherr-Molina.

BD Barcelona


Since 1972, BD Barcelona’s focus has been on the intersection of art and design. Choosing artisan methods over mass production that often results in limited or short-lived production runs, each of BD Barcelona’s designs marks a close collaboration with an artist or designer to produce pieces that function on such a highly aesthetic level that each design truly blurs the lines between sculpture and industrial design. Throughout its history, BD Barcelona has not only expertly curated its now iconic archival collections by Antoni Gaudi , Salvador Dali, and Josep Jujol, but collaboratively developed extraordinarily engaging contemporary designs by Ettore Sottsass, Javier Mariscal, Jaime Hayon, Antoine + Manuel, Christian Zuzunaga, Doshi Levien, Pepe Cortes , and the Campana Brothers. Switch Modern delights in presenting the entire BD Barcelona collection on its website as well as highlighting several seminal furniture and accessory designs in our Atlanta showroom.

Bensen


Bensen is a design and manufacturing group that was founded in 1981 by Niels Bendtsen and is based in Vancouver, Canada. Along with his staff, Danish-born Bendtsen not only designs the pieces for Bensen, but also oversees production of its extensive line of home furnishings – sofas, sectionals, tables, chairs, stools, credenzas, cabinets, and beds. According to Bendsten, “Quality is a funny concept. We tend to think of it as being associated with handcraft. But quality is also about your attitude to design. Craftsmanship is just as much about how you run the machines that are necessary for economic viability.” Bensen’s philosophy of balancing simplicity and honesty in design is a sentiment that Switch Modern shares. While we have just started adding Bensen designs to our website, we expect to shortly be showing a greater range of pieces and typologies… in the meantime, please contact us for specific information regarding pieces not currently highlighted.

Bitossi


Emerging from an ancient ceramic tradition in Montelupo Fiorentino region of Italy, Bitossi Ceramiche evolved from 19th century local handcrafted production to its high-design modern ceramic production in the 20th century under the artistic direction of one of its principal designers, Aldo Londi. Londi is known for his much-loved signature abstracted figural forms – cats, dogs, fish, horses, birds – as well as his decorative vases, bowls, and vessels many of which are offered in his iconic, beautifully gradient and tonal Rimini-blue glaze. Switch Modern highlights an extensive range of Londi’s classic midcentury pieces, the seminal Hollywood Series of graphic vessels developed with Ettore Sottsass in the late 1950s and early 1960s, as well as the contemporary minimalist forms created by British designer Benjamin Hubert.

Bocci


Bocci was founded after a chance meeting in 2005 of its principals, Omer Arbel and Randy Bishop, during New York Design Week where Arbel was presenting a prototype of a cast glass pendant lamp and Bishop was attending a convention. The pair returned to Vancouver and launched Bocci with Arbel’s single, now iconic and award-winning ‘14’ pendant. Over the ensuing decade, Bocci has grown into an expansive range of lighting designs organized into families that are characterized by overarching aesthetics achieved through Arbel’s masterful experimentation and manipulation of materials – molten metals, blown glass, porcelain, ceramic – all infused with cutting edge illumination technologies. Arbel’s designs instantly become the focal point of any interior, creating an ethereal nexus of the universes of illumination, sculpture, and installation. Switch Modern offers the entire Bocci range on our website as well as presents examples from several of Bocci’ lighting design families within our Atlanta showroom.

Braun


Known for their groundbreaking mid-century concepts with industrial products, Braun clocks and watches remains one of the most respected names in modern timepieces. Heavily influenced by design principles cultivated in the German Bauhaus Movement, early Braun products consistently reflected a practical, clean, unobtrusive style that persists even now.

Innovations like the first combined radio and record player, as well as the first electric shaver, are succeeded today by beautifully simple, reliable Braun watches and clocks.  Always respecting the legacy of Braun’s early head of creative design, Dieter Rams (whose work was some of the most influential in later 20th century industrial design.) His famous ten principles of good design could be summed up in his favorite saying, “less, but better.” When you select any of these meticulously made timepieces, you can rest assured you’ve chosen an award-winning design. Like the Braun BNC009 Digital Alarm Clock, winner of an iF gold award for product design from the prestigious International Forum Design GmbH, Braun clocks are not only beautiful, their functional.

Carl Hansen & Son


Carl Hansen opened his eponymous furniture workshop in 1908 in Odense, Denmark. As Carl Hansen & Son grew and times changed, the manufacturer started a fruitful collaboration with Hans Wegner in the late 1940s resulting in many of the designer’s classic 20th century designs from the 1950s and 1960s – dining and lounge chairs, coffee and dining tables, sofas – including his much-celebrated pieces like CH07, Wishbone, Elbow, and Oculus. True to its founding values, it remains Carl Hansen’s ambition in the 21st century to continue making furniture of the highest quality, beauty, and value with respect for sustainable design, materials, and its 100+ years of legendary craftsmanship. Switch Modern shows a curated collection of classics from Hans Wegner, Kaare Klint, Mogens Koch, Frits Henningsen, Poul Kjaerholm, and Ole Wanscher, along with contemporary designs destined to become classics by Morten Gottler, Strand & Hvass, and Tadao Ando.

Ceccotti


Ceccotti Collezioni was launched in the mid-20th century, to supply unique furnishings to exclusive residences and hotels. The company built its aesthetic out of the traditional Tuscan artisan craftsmanship taught in the area’s Cascina School of Art. Early collections of Ceccotti products were influenced by surrealist designers like Gaudi and Mollino, as well as contemporary Scandinavian designs. Today, the firm’s designers continue to create forward-looking yet elegant pieces, employing sensual, organic curves and respecting the traditions and uses of home and commercial furnishings.

Cherner Chair


After listening to countless requests from fellow architects to see his father's designs reissued, Benjamin Cherner decided to join with his brother Thomas to form the Cherner Chair Company in 1999. By paying attention to strict detail and using his original drawings for inspiration, the brothers have not only reissued and recreated many of Norman Cherner’s sustainable furniture designs that were originally produced by Plycraft from the 1950s through the 1970s, but have also introduced new pieces designed by Benjamin Cherner. Cherner Chair no longer produces just Cherner chairs, but also tables, desks, stools, children’s furniture, and case goods like dressers, credenzas, and storage cabinets… even a seldom-seen lamp that Norman Cherner designed in the late 1960s.

ClassiCon


Classicon, a clever portmanteau deriving from the words “classic” and “contemporary,” perfectly fuses the range of designs produced by this German manufacturer. Founded in 1990, ClassiCon holds the worldwide license to produce Eileen Gray’s iconic range of designs from the 20th century. Before her death in 1973, Gray collaborated with London’s Aram Designs to issue many of her furnishings as production pieces – lounge chairs, sofas, side tables, dining tables, screens, and rugs. ClassiCon is the only licensed manufacturer of Eileen Gray’s designs. In addition to its meticulous production of her furnishings from the 1920s and 1930s, ClassiCon collaborates with a number of contemporary designers like Konstantin Grcic, Jader Alme ida, Nina Mair, Sauerbruch Hutton, Edward Barber + Jay Osgerby, Neri & Hu, Sebastian Herkner, to create new pieces. All ClassicCon pieces are presented as part of an edition where each example is both stamped and numbered. Switch Modern presents a cohesive ClassiCon range that encompasses nearly 100 years of important design.

Cocoon Fireplaces


Created by industrial and interactive designer Federico Otero, Cocoon Fires offers a variety of modern fireplaces that are equally functional and stunning. The units run on biofuel, distributing warmth throughout a room in a clean and environmentally-friendly manner. Each piece makes a stylish touch in both interior and exterior home settings.

What's best about these contemporary fireplaces – they're smoke free and require no flue. They're not just tasteful decorations - they're practical warmth capsules that can make any setting as cozy. Choose between the pedestal option or hang your fireplace from the ceiling with the mounting bracket.

Conmoto


Conmoto was started in the late 1990s with a simple desire by its founder, Johannes Wagner, to create a modern alternative to the typical aesthetics associated with fireplace tools. Based in Germany and known for its beautifully crafted pieces, Conmoto has continued to expand its range of fireplace accessories – andirons, screens, tool sets, and log holders – through collaborations with several designers like Peter Maly, Sebastian Buscher, and Marco Ferreri. Switch Modern presents a range of these designs that recontextualize the fireplace in a thoroughly contemporary way.

Cristae


Designed by Vancouver-based sculptor Marie Khouri, Cristae's oversized architectural plant pots can be placed in or outside of your living space to truly bring it to life. Constructed with molded polyethylene and hand-finished to create a pristine, matte surface that's smooth to touch, each planter is stylish, durable, and lightweight. They're also created with UV protection to ensure that sunlight never takes its toll on their simple shade of white. Khouri’s sculptural forms reside at the intersection of art and design. Switch Modern shows all of the available sizes from Cristae’s range of sculptural planters.

CVL Lighting


Proudly sporting its “hand-made in France” tagline, CVL Luminaires Contract offers a range of modular and adaptable lighting typologies for wall, suspension, floor, and surface applications – the juxtaposition of luxe materials with engaging forms underscores all of this French manufacturer’s designs. Each CVL Luminaires design is manufactured entirely by hand at its factory in Angers, France. Whenever a new CVL light fitting is conceived, a precise and closely controlled production process ensues whereby careful dimensional, visual, quality, and standardization checks are performed manually by its craftsmen – this guarantees that each piece of CVL lighting is of the utmost quality. For over five decades, the prevailing spirit of CVL Luminaires Contract has always been the manufacturer’s commitment to a manipulation of materials and forms to engender engaging new forms of illumination. Switch Modern is delighted to present the entire range of CVL on its website – most of which is UL-approved, making it ideal for both residential and contract applications. Similarly, Switch Modern can work with CVL in the design and production of custom applications for its lighting designs.

Danese Milano


Established in 1957, Italy’s Danese Milano has been synonymous with award-winning designs from Bruno Munari and Enzo Mari that now figure prominently in the permanent collections of museums worldwide. Mari’s Ameland sensual letter opener (1964) or his enigmatic, canted In Atessa wastebasket (1971) challenge preconceived notions of how everyday objects can look. The designer’s large format graphic screen prints of fruit and animals from the 1960s and 1970s instantly become bright, Pop focal points on any wall and are a favorite in kids’ rooms. Over the ensuing decades, Danese Milano has collaborated with Angelo Mangiarotti, Achille Castiglioni, Kuno Prey, and Marco Ferreri. Just recently, Ron Gilad was appointed as the manufacturer’s creative director and Switch Modern is excited about presenting new pieces as they become available.

David Trubridge Design


David Trubridge lighting products hang lightly in the air, as if floating in the watery oceans that inspired many of his designs. We offer an extensive collection of these museum-quality pieces in all sizes. The nature-derived designs blend seamlessly into the interiors of modern homes, suitable for every room, over a dining table, in a reading corner, or as the center objet d’art in a spacious great room. The David Trubridge ethic means every lamp is designed with a deep commitment to preserving the natural environment, from the choice of materials for products, to the design and materials used in packaging.

Each lamp takes its design from an aspect of nature, ranging from solar flares to Pacific Island palms. Environmental concerns mean packaging is reduced to the bare minimum needed to ship goods safely, and is always recyclable. Products are made from sustainable and non-toxic materials, with mostly bamboo as a primary material. Shipped as kitsets in carefully designed flatpacks, each item comes with step-by-step guidance for easy DIY assembly, while larger items are assembled at the distributor.

Davide Groppi


Each selected Davide Groppi lighting piece reflects his artistic vision. These finely designed lamps bring an intensity of focused and diffused light to an area, while occupying the least amount of space possible.

Droog


Droog (in Dutch meaning "dry") is a conceptual design company based in Amsterdam. Founded by product designer Gijs Bakker and design historian Renny Ramakers, the duo presented a selection of designs made of industrial materials and found objects at the Milan Furniture Fair in 1993 – the presentation was titled “Droog Design” because of the simplicity and dry humor of the objects. Early Droog pieces – Rody Graumann’s 85 Bulbs and Tejo Remy’s Chest of Drawers, Rag Chair, and Milk Bottle Lamp – are now icons of design from the early 1990s. Joined with millennium pieces like Marijn Van Der Poll’s Do Hit Chair, Jurgen Bey’s Treetrunk Bench, and Nina Farkache’s Come A Little Closer, these form the core of a collection of late 20th century design that also features a range of clever, conceptual accessories from the 1990s through the present. In addition to the aforementioned designers, Droog has worked with Marcel Wanders, Hella Jongerius, Richard Hutten, Ed Annink, Joris Laarman, Peter Van Der Jagt, Chris Kabel, Hector Serrano, Arnout Visser, and Arian Brekveld.

Dyson


Known for its innovative ways of rethinking the vacuum cleaner, British manufacturer, Dyson, has applied its same design tenets to a range of desk, floor, and suspension lamps. Jack Dyson’s CSYS and CU lighting series were actually inspired by the technology used in satellites for the direction of heat and its subsequent cooling, dramatically prolonging the life of Dyson’s LED illumination components. Precision-engineered ergonomics like lumens saturation and positioning are framed within very cool, high-tech minimalist forms that become pragmatic and stylish additions to any interior.

Ecart International


Downy-soft armchairs, woven straw sun-shaped coffee tables, spherical nickel-plated brass desk lamps—these are just a few of the iconic, early 20th century breakthrough designs being reissued among Ecart International products. The original designers are a who’s who of important names whose signature pieces can now bring grace and beauty to your home or office, like Mariano Fortuny, Eileen Gray, and Adolphe Chanaux.

For almost four decades, Flou has expanded its offerings to more than 50 different types of beds in all sizes and typologies including sofa beds and studio couches. Flou also manufactures all of the bed’s associated technical accessories – mattresses, pillows, mattress supports.

Foscarini


Foscarini was founded in 1981 on the Italian island of Murano near Venice. Given its location, its early production pieces were logically focused primarily on blown glass. By the late 1980s, Carlo Urbinati and Alessandro Vecchiat (both had previously worked as designers for Foscarini) took over management of the company and expanded its mission to include research and experimentation in a range of materials other than glass – molded polyethelyene, aluminum, polycarbonate, even Kevlar thread and silicon-coated metal. This commitment to innovation through materials has led to successful collaborations with a number of renowned architects and designers over the past few decades including Ferruccio Laviani, Tom Dixon, Aldo Cibic, Piero Lissoni, Marc Sadler, James Irvine, Karim Rashid, Patricia Urquiola, Luca Nichetto, and Valerio Bottin. Foscarini has received numerous, prestigious awards and many of its designs are now in the permanent collections of several museums around the world.

Having mastered the manipulation of bending wood, the manufacturer’s next product line was the construction of tubular steel furniture – designs by Mart Stam, Mies van der Rohe, and Marcel Breuer – that characterized the Bauhaus movement of the 1920s and early 1930s.

Originally fabricated in metal and part of New York’s Museum of Modern Art permanent collection, IC Design recreated and reissued the set in wood. Man Ray’s reduction of the traditional chess pieces into abstracted forms – pawn as sphere, rook as cube, queen as cone, king as attenuated pyramid – becomes a visually engaging way of rethinking how chess pieces can look.

“I love watches. As an eyeglass designer for close to 20 years, I’ve always looked for a watch that connected to my own design style, which means a clean, simple design with a lot of color.
