A highlight for this year was undoubtedly Max Lamb's Exercises in Seating, a retrospective of his fascinating design work that celebrates process and provenance in ever more innovative and wonderful ways. Nendo again provided much to reflect upon at their annual showcase of recent work.
Furniture wise a David Chipperfield collaboration with e15 resulted in the beautifully proportioned Fayland Table and several other pieces. Knoll and Arper quietly tackled the creation of discreet chairs that innovate technically as well as aesthetically. Lighting by Jasper Morrison and Giopato and Coombes were also firm favourites. It was a great year for emerging talent too as both Norway and Austria were represented by two fantastic shows.
