It’s been a busy and exciting 2014 at Plank that’s seen us expand our collection of contemporary furniture and collaborate with some of the world’s leading architects and designers on inspirational projects from Miami to the Maldives.
At the Milan furniture fair we launched extra sizes of Konstantin Grcic’s popular MIURA table and introduced new colours for the MIURA stool. Plank’s furniture also featured in two exhibitions at the Triennale di Milano museum during design week. Other events we’ve contributed to in the past twelve months included Konstantin Grcic’s solo show at the Vitra Design Museum in Weil am Rhein and an exhibition at the Foire de Paris trade fair that explored innovation in contemporary chair manufacture.
Our products were specified for projects by several top global architects in 2014: the MIURA stool was used in the spectacular Dongdaemun Design Plaza by Zaha Hadid Architects, and two recently completed buildings in Miami by Herzog & de Meuron were furnished with MONZA armchairs and MYTO chairs. We’ve also enjoyed working with interior designers to supply furniture for a range of outstanding corporate, retail and hospitality projects last year, including the Facebook headquarters in California, Beirut’s Stereokitchen restaurant, and new facilities for brands including BMW, Hugo Boss, Carlsberg and Skoda.
Finally, we’re delighted that the Danish Design Museum has included the MONZA armchair in its permanent collection and it was fun to see American actor Ashton Kutcher perched on the MYTO chair in a promotional campaign for electronics brand Lenovo.
We thank all our customers, partners, distributors and staff for having made 2014 a superb year for Plank and we’re looking forward to the new challenges and opportunities that 2015 brings.
