Ross Lovegrove’s Bone chair caused a stir at the Milan Furniture Fair last week, where it was exhibited as part of Italian company Ceccotti’s latest collection entitled Signs. The UK designer drew inspiration from a white bone chair he saw in Ethiopia. The object, he says, should speak of ‘the origins of wood, of its structural and formal potential, and of its relations with an English golf club’. Bone is made of maple wood and leather. Other pieces for the range were by Christophe Pillet and Roberto Lazzeroni.
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”.
