British furniture manufacturer Hitch Mylius launches a range of upholstered seating at 100% Design this year, including two pieces created by external designers. Shin and Tomoko Azumi have created a restaurant chair for the manufacturer, in what is the second time the pair have collaborated with Hitch Mylius. The company has also teamed up with recent Royal College of Art graduate Chijioke Aguh, who has designed an upholstered bench, HM88 (bottom), for the collection. A Hitch Mylius spokeswoman says Aguh was inspired by ‘sculpture, architecture, ocean-liners and the female hourglass figure’ in creating the bench. It will retail for £1003 plus fabric. The final two ranges, which have been designed in-house by Tristram Mylius, include a collection of sofas (top).
Design outfit Studio Texture has led the redesign, keeping the previous Pentagram-designed logo but introducing new colours, typography and tone of voice.
The newly-established partnership hopes to create more aesthetically-pleasing solutions to COVID wayfinding in working, retail and even domestic spaces.
The Danish design innovation lab has collaborated with several studios to create a typographic identity that is as “neutral as possible”.
