Homeware retailer Heal’s is to launch two products – Rock Galpin’s Lobo lounger (pictured) and Peter Ayres’ Lotus pendant light – at 100% Design next month. Heal’s briefed Galpin to create a classic easy chair, while Ayres was asked to design a ‘playful’ chandelier. The Lobo chair is upholstered in either leather or a choice of fabrics and Ayres’ light is created from a single sheet of polypropylene. Both products were commissioned as part of the Hidden Art Design and Manufacture project, which invites retailers and manufacturers to commission work from London designers.
