This year’s premieres strongly reflect the Comforty design approach. The influence of the Modernist heritage of the design and the visual arts of the 20th and 21st Centuries strongly impacts our material culture and design in general. Static and dynamic, the synthesis of forms and materials and an eye to the ergonomic are key concepts that describe our new developments. The young talent Jan Kochanski debuts his premium upholstery product - Calder, while Krystian Kowalski redefines the wood collection with a new pieces – the Circus table collection, announcing a new direction in the Comforty’s wood collection.

The visual identity of this year’s stand is designed by Comforty in collaboration with the Milan-based Dorota Koziara Studio. The colours, patterns, materials and functions are inspired by Sarah Morris artworks and her significant collaboration with leading American design-driven textile company Maharam. The textile designed by Sarah Morris, applied on the walls and integrated with the set, signal a company statement about contemporary home, office and hospitality interiors. We see a diverse pattern of hexagonal shapes and coloured horizontal rectangles – these ideas and values, merged together in a complex, yet rational and coherent structure, correspond well with the products displayed on the stand, and this forms a context for 20th Century artistic movements such as neoplasticism, avantgarde, minimalism and pop. The hexagonal pattern of the textile traces the details that are present in the products’ design. The appealing forms and tones of the products create a dialogue with the intense textile.
