Architect David Chipperfield’s Air Frame range of contract and residential furniture, hitherto seen only in Japan, will be given a first outing in Europe later this month. Simplicity of design and construction – in the Modern mode of Eileen Gray and Ludwig Mies van der Rohe – characterises the collection, which includes sofas, tables, a sideboard and desk system. The series takes its lead from the Air Frame material, a strong and lightweight honeycomb panel used as both structure and surface with secondary elements and detailing kept to a minimum. It is on show from 26 September to 6 October at Aram, 110 Drury Lane, London WC2. The range is produced by Cassina IXC, a Tokyo-based division of Italian manufacturer Cassina.
