Friday selection, Baxter, Italy


Like & Share

In Miami last week, I had the pleasure to discover the italian brand of design Baxter.
I didn't know it.
Baxter, which produces beds, sofas and armchairs with a single reference material – leather, started from the idea of entwining the mastery of local craftsmen with the search for materials. Almost entirely hand-made and kept natural in the design, unique and irreproducible pieces.
A Miami la semaine passée, j'ai eu le plaisir de découvrir une marque de design italien : Baxter.
Je ne connaissais pas.
Baxter, fait des canapés, des lits, des fauteuils, avec un matériau de référence - le cuir ; partant de l'idée de mettre en avant l'artisanat local et de faire une vraie recherche sur les matériaux en général. Tout est quasiment fait-main, tout en gardant une touche de design intemporel, une unicité et des pièces non reproductibles.

For me, it was love at first sight, probably not on the whole collection, but you can feel an history that was and is, day after day, powered by an infinite passion for what is beautiful, made well, designed and created to convey emotions.
Pour moi, ce fut le coup de coeur, probablement pas sur la collection toute entière, mais on peut ressentir l'histoire, jour après jour, derrière une vraie passion pour ce qui est beau, bien fait, conçu et créé pour provoquer des émotions.

These tables for example : handmade pattern, very graphic, a bit used
Lots of spirit and style !
Ces tables par exemple : motif fait main, très graphique, un peu usé
De l'esprit et un style incroyables !

And I has the pleasure to sit in that one - so comfortable ! the leather is thin and soft
and what I really enjoyed is that they made a selection of very graphic patterns that they print on the skin.
It is really great, so different from everything we see on the usual design market !
Et j'ai eu le plaisir de m'asseoir dans celui-ci - super confortable ! le cuir est ultra fin et ultra souple.
Et ce que j'ai vraiment apprécié, c'est qu'ils impriment des motifs super graphiques sur le cuir lui même.
C'est vraiment chouette, original et très différent de ce que l'on a l'habitude de voir sur le marché du design!

To finish just an overview of some patterns and leather !

It's been a while I am looking at this clever system of our dear Bouroullec brothers for curtains.
Still not tested but aesthetically already approved. Especially according the lack of innovation in this field in terms of design...
Cela fait un moment que je regarde ce système très intelligent de nos chers frères Bouroullec pour les rideaux.
Pas encore testé mais déjà approuvé esthétiquement. Particulièrement vu le manque d'innovation en terme de design dans ce domaine...

The curtain is designed as a flexible hanging system that users can adapt to fit any window.
The kit comprises a hanging cord, wall fixings, pegs and your choice of Kvadrat (excellent quality !!!) textiles.
