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).
Designed in collaboration with Stockholm-based studio Teenage Engineering, the collection aims to “democratise light and sound at home” with affordable modular pieces.
