Matthew Hilton presented his fully-fledged lifestyle brand in a comfortable, understated environment, calling attention to the noble materials and sculptural forms of the products. Previewed were rugs, Tile and Link, inspired by a walk through the streets of the old town of Porto, the patterns and textures simplified, extrapolated, reduced and re-proportioned.

Autoban unveiled their fourth and final unique installation for this 12 month period. The space was conceived as a studio, implying in visual layers influences on the design process from conception to production. The ergonomic drawings on the layers represented the thought process, while the monochromatic colours of the products aestheticised the approach towards the form and function. Autoban also launched a new timber option for their complete collection: brown painted chestnut. The chestnut is wire brushed before the application of the brown paint, creating a sensuously textured surface, where the contours of the wood grain can be felt.
