Launching 9 November 2020, the online showcase will feature new design - from furniture and lighting to home accessories and tech solutions that offer fresh perspectives on how we will design, adorn and experience our spaces.
Void Matters by Note Design Studio is Sancal‘s first purely conceptual collection which reflects upon the concept of a void. The Swedish designers deliver a masterful exercise in abstraction to create four sculptural products that take negative space as their starting points. Born from conceptual experiment and technical curiosity, the collection contemplates how the empty spaces shape matter. Core and Remnant seats, Vestige tables and Dividuals poufs, all designed by Note, share the same source of inspiration: the void as design element. However, each of these spectacular features its uniqueness.
Experts in refined outdoor living, Dedon will present Kida, their new hanging lounge chair by Stephen Burks. Kida marks a longstanding creative relation between the brand and designers, with both having a deep appreciation for contemporarising. Frequently collaborating with artisans and craftspeople around the globe, Stephen explores the role of handwork in his innovative and award-winning designs. Alongside, Dedon will present the Loon and Embrace collections developed with Sebastian Herkner and an update to their Tibbo collection by Edward Barber & Jay Osgerby.
Developed by London based design practice PearsonLloyd, Bene’s latest offering, Ports, reflects emerging organisational structures and patterns of leadership that are non-hierarchical, more open and more dynamic.

The product range reflects the high standards of modern-day leadership, and together create multifunctional space situations which reflect all forms of working, growing together as needed and flexibly adaptable.

Over the years, the Czech glassmaking and design company has created and developed several signature designs which deserve to shine all around the world. From the Dancing Leaves installation in the Peninsula Hotel in Paris or preserving nature in glass in the installation Herbarium, Lasvit’s glass-art piece speak of the atelier’s connection to the outdoors and passion for innovation in Bohemian glass. To spread this inspiration into private homes, they have adapted these large-scale concepts into several standardizations. At the Downtown Design 2020 Digital Fair, they will present Lasvit Icons– a curated selection of bespoke designs available in a ready-to-order package.
Austrian designer Thomas Feichtner interprets the never-evening patterns found in nature for a new collection of chandeliers for Preciosa. Fractal’s construction is based on tubular metal ‘branches’ which not only give the chandelier its artistic shape, but also conceal the light sources. The branches end with hand-blown crystal plates that mirror natural motifs through a modular structure. Minimal and modernist as they may be, the Fractal lights cast mesmerizing patterns of crystal light. Fractal joins the Preciosa Collections portfolio as a new Interpretation of their iconic Louis chandelier.
