Furniture brand Made in Ratio joined forces with fashion label and store Labo.art at this year’s Milan Design Week.
Made in Ratio created a moment of theatre at the Labo.art flagship store in Milan’s Brera district. The tableau united the sinuous dynamism of Made in Ratio furniture with the minimal elegance of the Labo.art clothes.
This Salone Made in Ratio launched the Cowrie Leather Chair. The gently folding monocoque structure featured a moulded fine-leather seat-pad that mimics the contours of the chair’s undulations. Inspired by the concave lines of sea shells, the curvilinear form of the chair is the result of an extensive research and innovation process that bridges the handmade with the digital. Additional designs on exhibit comprised key pieces from the core collection including the Alpha chair, launched to great critical acclaim last Salone and the versatile Supernova desk.
Brodie Neill, Founder and Creative Director of Made in Ratio, comments, “This collaboration is a perfect fit: both brands hold the same key principles close to our hearts, including a focus on lines, volumes and geometry of the designs and an uncompromising commitment to the quality of the production”.
Made in Ratio creates boundary-pushing contemporary furniture and lighting. The brand was forged from a desire to take exceptional ideas from inception to production by embracing experimental processes. Working alongside some of the finest craftspeople in Europe and championing time-honoured materials, our products are imbued with the spirit of innovation.
The brand aims to deliver thoughtful, quality design by challenging industry convention and believes that the rigours of this challenge make the end result infinitely more interesting. This signature approach underpins each of the collections where pioneering design is allied with peerless makers. Designed and developed by Creative Director Brodie Neill, the brand has rapidly earned a reputation for design excellence, winning several industry awards and gaining coverage in a host of prestigious publications across the globe.
