The design world is abuzz regarding Artek’s latest furniture collection, which debuted at the 2015 Stockholm Furniture Fair. Conceived by French design duo, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, it features rectangular and round tables in two sizes, a desk, a wall console, a small round shelf and a selection of large wall-mounted shelving units, all of which utilize wooden and steel components. The press release details the marrying of these two elements best: "The principle is extremely simple: the vertical load is supported by a wooden part and a bent steel band embraces the contours of this solid wooden piece. The steel band draws a kind of wing bracket-angle that supports the ensemble and creates a linear and rhythmic silhouette."
