Isokon and the Bauhaus in Britain book Aram Store

Isokon and the Bauhaus in Britain is a new book by Leyla Daybelge and Magnus Englund which tells the story of the iconic Modernist apartment block in Hampstead, north London, which was built in 1934. Designed by Wells Coates to a brief set by clients Jack and Molly Pritchard, the modest size apartments would dictate how residents would use the individual spaces. A fully staffed communal kitchen within the building meant each apartment only needed a small kitchen area. Living rooms served as spaces to sleep in with the exception of the penthouse which had a separate bedroom. Plywood furniture was designed for the building and produced by Jack Pritchard’s manufacturing company, Isokon Plus. It could be ordered on request for each apartment and could be seen in the bar on the ground floor which residents used to socialise with each other and friends. This new way of living attracted creative types and included Bauhaus teachers Walter Gropius, Marcel Breuer and László Moholy-Nagy.

Book extract Isokon and the Bauhaus in Britain Aram Store

The book documents the history of the building, profiles its most famous residents and discusses its legacy.  Included are quotes by Zeev Aram, Founder and Chairman of Aram Designs Ltd.

The official launch will take place at The Aram Gallery on 7 March, 6.30-8.30pm. Zeev Aram will be in conversation with the authors discussing his work with Jack Pritchard. An exhibition about the Isokon building and its furniture will be on display in the gallery and will run from 7 to 30 March.

Isokon and the Bauhaus in Britain, published by Batsford, will be available at Aram Store from 7 March at £25. It is available online now for pre-order. Visitors to the launch event will be able to pick up a copy at the special price of £20 in-store that evening.

To coincide with the centenary of the Bauhaus, three of our leading suppliers have produced anniversary editions of furniture designed by the school’s architecture teacher and director Ludwig Mies van der Rohe.

MR Chaise Bauhaus Edition Knoll International Aram Store

Knoll has created a special Bauhaus Edition of the MR collection of lounge chairs, chaise longues and stool in new fabric and leathers. A special stamp will feature on each polished chromed tubular steel frame.

Prices for items pictured: MR armchair, from £2,856 | MR chaise longue, from £3,540

Barcelona Chair Bauhaus Edition Knoll International Aram Store

The iconic Barcelona chair is being produced as a limited edition of 365, one for every day of this year.  Available in black, green or cream leather, the frame is in black chromed flat spring steel, hand-ground and polished to a mirror finish. Like the aforementioned MR collection, each structure will have a special stamp to commemorate the anniversary and also a serial number. A certificate of authenticity will be provided. Price: £7,056

S533F Limited Edition Thonet Aram Store

Thonet has released a limited edition version of Mies van der Rohe’s ‘MR10’ S533F cantilever armchair. First presented in 1927 at the Weissenhof Seidlung estate in Stuttgart, the chair is representative of the clear, open and simple form as an expression of a new attitude in everyday culture and architecture, which became famous as ‘The New Objectivity’. Elegant lines and transparency paired with restrained use of materials are typical of the Bauhaus. Studio Besau-Marguerre have overlaid a sensual colour palette for this edition of 100 chairs: pearl gloss chrome with anthracite nubuck leather or champagne chrome with rosé nubuck leather.  Price: £2,093 each

Wagenfeld Lamp and Bauhaus limited edition Tecnolumen Aram Store

The Wagenfeld table lamp by Wilhelm Wagenfeld is often referred to as the Bauhaus lamp and is one of the most famous products of the design movement. A new limited edition silver-plated version, model number WA 24Si, has been released by Tecnolumen to celebrate the Bauhaus anniversary. 999 will be produced.  Each will be stamped and numbered on the underside of the base. Wagenfeld joined the Bauhaus workshop as a journeyman aged 24. His first model of the lamp was designed there in 1923 as part of an assignment set by Moholy-Nagy. Although it had the appearance of an industrial lamp it was handmade. The same manufacturing techniques are used to this day. Three other versions of the lamp are in Tecnolumen’s permanent catalogue. Price for anniversary edition lamp: £1,080

Other Bauhaus designs are continuously on display in our store. Here are some examples, designed by Marcel Breuer.

Wassily chair and Laccio tables Knoll International Aram Store

Wassily chair (1925), manufactured by Knoll, in leather and chromed tubular steel, £2,052. Laccio occasional tables (1925), manufactured by Knoll, in black or white laminate top and polished chromed tubular steel, £528 short and £899 long

Eames DSW upholstered chair - Vitra - Aram Store

This Winter, in conjunction with Vitra, we have two promotions that centre around some of Charles and Ray Eames‘ best loved designs. For the dining room, we highlight the DSW upholstered chair: buy six chairs for the price of five. Simply place six matching chairs into the shopping basket and the value of one chair will be deducted as a discount. Available in a very wide combination of materials – 28 Hopsak fabrics, 14 plastic shell clours and four wood base colours – contact the store to see the entire range.

Eames Plastic Chair Collection - Vitra - Aram Store

The Eames Plastic Chair collection was originally designed for the ‘International Competition for Low-Cost Furniture Design.’ This competition, sponsored by the Museum of Modern Art, was motivated by the urgent need in the post-war period for low-cost housing and furnishing designs adaptable to small housing units. For years, the designer couple explored the fundamental idea of a one-piece seat shell moulded to fit the contours of the human body. After experiments with plywood and sheet aluminium in the 1940s produce unsatisfactory results, their search for alternative materials led them to glass-fibre reinforced polyester resin. Today Vitra manufactures the comfortable seat shells of the Eames Plastic Chairs in polypropylene.

Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman Limited Edition Mahogany - Vitra - Aram Store

Possibly the most iconic of all of the Eames’ designs is the lounge chair and ottoman. Vitra have created a limited edition for this Winter in FSC-certified sapele mahogany wood – characterised by a rich, red-brown colour and a distinctive ribbon grain. Paired with black Premium grade leather and a black lacquered aluminium base with polished edges, this edition of the lounge chair and ottoman presents an especially elegant and refined appearance. It also comes with an exclusive free gift: a matching version of the LTR occasional table, with mahogany laminate top and a dark coated wire base. This version of the table is only available as a gift with the lounge chair set.

Receive an exclusive free gift of an LTR occasional table with a mahogany top and dark metal base with the mahogany lounge chair and ottoman

Both of these offers run from 01 November until 31 January 2019.

Carl Hansen founded his company in a small workshop in Odense on the island of Funen in Denmark in 1908 – it now occupies over 18,000 square metres of factory space across 12 buildings in Gelsted.

CH24 Wishbone Chair - Hans Wegner - Carl Hansen & Son - Wood

Comments Off on Carl Hansen & Søn – 110th Birthday

As the evening light is closing in earlier, we have a new range of table and suspension lighting to add some mood to the darker evenings. During the month of October we will also offer 15% off all new lighting orders. See our online selection here with additional products from our suppliers available to order in-store.

Dipping light-Jordi Canudas-Marset-Aram Store

Dipping Lights by Jordi Canudas for Marset

The stunning Dipping Light by Jordi Canudas for Marset is an experiment with light and paint. The globe diffuser is brilliant white blown glass which is dipped in paint several times. The layers of paint draw concentric circles and capture the light, moderating its intensity. Colours are amber, black, blue, grey, pink and white – suitable to almost all domestic schemes.

Each lamp illuminates with different shades of light depending on the paint colour. The cylindrical base is made of brushed brass. The small size measures 12.5 diameter x 22.2h cm and the larger size at 30 diameter x 54h cm is large enough to be used as a floor lamp as well as on a table.

Bellhop table lamps-red and grey-Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby-Flos-Aram Store

Bellhop lamps by Barber and Osgerby for Flos

The Bellhop table lamp was originally designed by Barber & Osgerby as a commission by the London Design Museum in 2016. It was conceived for their Parabola restaurant and was produced in spun aluminium in navy blue. Now in full production by Flos, the sleek and striking lamp comes in white, grey, chocolate and brick red injection-moulded polycarbonate. It is a cordless LED lamp, rechargeable with four dimmer settings, that provides low glare illumination. It offers six hours of battery life at full power and 24 hours at the lowest setting after three hours of USB charging.

Arrangements-Michael Anastassiades-Flos-Aram Store

Arrangements by Michael Anastassiades for Flos. Photography by Santi Caleca.

Fascinated with the parallel that exists between lighting and jewellery, Arrangements by Michael Anastassiades is an elegant lighting system which draws on the double meaning of the word pendant as a suspended light and a piece of jewellery which is worn around the neck. Geometric linked elements are extruded NC-machined and black powder-coated aluminium with the diffuser in platinum optical silicone. Elements can be combined in different ways, creating multiple compositions into individual suspended chandeliers. Each piece clicks in place to rest on the one above.  Ceiling roses with two power sizes are available, for lamps with up to 70w and up to 190w.

Arrangements model 29S is on display in our store. It is a combination of two medium circular elements at 65cm diameter and a small ceiling rose. Other configurations and all elements are available to order in-store only.

PH 5 Limited Edition Copper Poul Henningsen Louis Poulsen Aram Store

Limited edition copper PH 5 lamp by Poul Henningsen, produced by Louis Poulsen

Louis Poulsen has released a copper version of Poul Henningsen’s classic PH 5 pendant to celebrate its 60th anniversary.  The more recent PH 5 Mini lamp is also available in the same finish.  The lamps provide glare-free light with the fixture emitting both downward and lateral light.  The copper is combined with matt white powder coated spun aluminium.

All these designs are currently on display in our Covent Garden store.

Founded by Peder Olsen Sibast in 1908, Sibast Furniture began as a small carpentry company on the island of Funen in Denmark. The company grew with Peder’s children joining him in the business. His son Helge became his apprentice and later took over the helm. Together their focus was on skilled craftsmanship and developing new products with designers such as Arne Vodder who served his apprenticeship with Finn Juhl, a leading figure within 20th century Danish design. Helge himself designed a number of products and the Sibast No 7 and No 8 chairs launched in 1953.

Sibast No 7 and Sibast No 8 dining chairs and Sibast No 2 dining table_Sibast Furniture_Aram Store

Sibast Furniture No 8 chair, No 2 dining table and No 7 dining chairs

The company was sold in 1984 with copyright of Helge’s designs retained by his three daughters. In 2012 along with his wife Anna, Ditlev Sibast – grandson of Helge, re-established Sibast Furniture and resumed manufacturing Helge’s products. The couple have added to the range with their own designs, amongst them the No 2 dining table, No 7 barstool and No 7 lounge chair.

Sibast No 7 dining chair and Sibast No 2 dining table_Helge Sibast_Sibast Furniture_Aram Store

Sibast Furniture No 7 dining chairs and No 2 table

Helge Sibast’s No 7 dining chair is characterised by its bold molded backrest and tapered back legs. The seat sits as a singular element on top of the chair’s frame and is available in treated oak, leather or fabric upholstery. The frame comes in black lacquered, oiled, smoked or soaped oak. A set of No 7 chairs in oiled oak with cognac leather seats is currently on display in-store.

Sibast No 7 lounge chair_Ditlev and Anna Sibast_Sibast Furniture_Aram Store

Sibast Furniture No 7 lounge chair

The No 7 lounge chair is a contemporary development of the dining chair created by Ditlev and Anna Sibast in collaboration with New York-based designer Marcus Hannibal. The key components of the No 7 dining chair translate perfectly into this relaxed form with the curved back and angled legs providing a solid base to lean into. It is available in the same finish options as the dining version with one exception, the seat is only available upholstered in fabric or leather. The chair can be seen in smoked oak and anthracite leather in-store.

Sibast No 8 dining chair and Sibast No 2 dining table_Sibast Furniture_Aram Store

Sibast Furniture No 2 table and No 8 chairs

For the No 2 dining table Anna and Ditlev collaborated with Helge’s daughter Bodil who followed in the footsteps of her father as a furniture designer and cabinetmaker. Their inspiration came from Helge’s No 1 side table designed in the late 1950s and adhears to his principle that a chair should never be hidden under a table, but placed beside it. True to this philosophy the stringent, narrow No 2 dining table is a refined design which allows chairs placed beside it a chance to shine. It is available in oiled, soaped or smoked oak.

Sibast No 8 dining chair and Sibast No 2 dining table_Sibast Furniture_Aram Store

Sibast Furniture No 8 dining chair and No 2 dining table

A signature piece from the Sibast Furniture range, the No 8 dining chair has characteristic y-shaped legs and a back support formed of spindle struts. The floating seat and the press moulded backrest demand a high quality of craftsmanship in order to create the whole form. The reissued chair has been nominated for the German Design Award 2019 in the product design category. It is in-store in smoked oak and anthracite leather.

Aram Store dining tables CH338 table Carl Hansen MDF Italia Aiku chair Montana modular furniture

For our latest in-store photoshoot we created a series of dining scenarios which feature two of our most popular table designs: the classic CH338 from Carl Hansen & Søn and MDF Italia’s minimal Lim 3.0. Here we highlight what makes them successful and present pieces they sit well with.

Oval dining tables possess the positive qualities of both a round and rectangular design. Like round tables they create an inclusive seating arrangement where no-one is left out. Simultaneously, they allow plenty of room through the centre for serving or sharing platters and fit comfortably in narrow spaces. Carl Hansen’s solid wood CH338 table was designed in 1962 by Hans J. Wegner, who was a driving force behind the ‘Danish Modern’ movement. This design is particularly adaptable as it accommodates up to four extension leaves which insert into a break in the centre. It is pictured above without an extension(s) in rich oiled oak.

Aram Store dining tables CH338 table Carl Hansen MDF Italia Aiku chair Kartell Componibili

MDF Italia produce Jean-Marie Massaud’s Aiku chair in a spectrum of optional elements and finishes. The chairs pictured have the shell and four-legged tapered base in gloss white, with the internal seat and backrest in matt olive green saffiano-effect polypropylene. This configuration adds a contemporary touch to the natural simplicity of Wegner’s mid-century design.

Also pictured in gloss white are the classic Componibili free-standing drawers by Anna Castelli Ferrieri for Kartell. Lightweight, functional and suitable for use throughout the house, the stackable design has been in production for over fifty years. Componibili holds the honour of being in the permanent collections of both MoMA and the Pompidou Centre.

Aram Store dining tables CH338 table Carl Hansen Miyazaki Chair Factory DC10 chair

Miyazaki Chair Factory’s DC10 chairs are one of our bestselling contemporary dining chairs. Designed for the revered Japanese workshop by Japanese-Danish duo Inoda+Sveje, the DC10 has an elegant, flowing frame. Miyazaki ensure full quality control by manufacturing every part themselves in Tokushima where the company was established in 1969. It is shown above in oiled oak with a beige mesh seat.

Aram Store dining tables Lim 3.0 table MDF Italia Verner Panton chair Montana modular furniture

MDF Italia are known for using materials in innovative ways and the Lim 3.0 table pictured is no exception. The angular, extruded aluminium frame holds an embedded ceramic top with satin finish. Glass and Fenix are also options and all finishes are available in multiple colours. A strong, understated piece of design, Lim 3.0 would suit many chair types from a Thonet bentwood 214 to an aluminium Konstantin Grcic Chair One.

Surrounding the table are Verner Panton’s Panton One chairs. Originally designed in 1955 for a restaurant in Tivoli, Copenhagen, Panton One is re-issued by Montana. They are super comfortable due to the flexibility of the nylon and PVC cord which forms the back and seat. They are suitable for indoor or outdoor use.

Aram Store dining tables Lim 3.0 table MDF Italia Artek A810 lamp

Another much admired 1950s design is Alvar Aalto’s A810 floor lamp, which has an Art Deco look. The two hand-riveted shades are formed of delicate, lacquered metal strips, which together present a striking combination of lines and curves. Its stand and base are covered in black leather and the neck is exposed brass.

Aram Store dining tables Lim 3.0 table MDF Italia Montana modular furniture

The Aiku chair can be seen here with a four-legged oak base. The silhouette of which is in keeping with the contemporary aesthetic, but the element of traditional joinery adds a healthy dose of contrast.

Running along the left of the photograph is a custom sideboard from modular furniture experts Montana – as is the blue and cream wall-mounted shelving unit. Montana’s range includes some ‘ready-to-wear’ furniture, like the Panton One chair, but they are equally well-known for their simple, colourful and adaptable storage system. Learn more about them here.

All furniture and lighting shown is currently on display in-store where we hold a library of material and colour samples for the majority of products.

AJ52 Society Table_Arne Jacobsen_Carl Hansen_Aram Store

Carl Hansen & Søn have released the Society table by design master Arne Jacobsen. Commissioned in 1952 as a gift for the American-Scandinavian Foundation’s New York office, this is the first time it has been available elsewhere.

The desk comes in two sizes – 140cm and 160cm length.  The frame is made of tubular steel and the table top is covered with fine-structured Freja leather in black or brown.  The feet and drawer unit, which can be right or left mounted, are in solid wood with an oak or walnut veneer.  Both can be finished in lacquer, oil, white oil or coloured black.  The optional desktop shelving is made of matching wood and clear glass, its dimensions chosen so that A4 paper and M65 envelopes fit inside.  It has an integrated lamp in brushed stainless steel.

BM1160 Hunting table_Børge Mogensen_Carl Hansen_Aram Store_walnut

BM1160 Hunting table_Børge Mogensen_Carl Hansen_Aram Store

Also new from the Danish manufacturer is Børge Mogensen’s Hunting table.  As the name suggests, the table was originally conceived for use in a hunting cabin and was designed in 1950 along with his better known Hunting chair.  Both featured in the Copenhagen Cabinetmakers’ Guild exhibition in the same year under the theme ‘A Hunting Lodge’.

The table comes in oak, walnut and a combination of these woods, all finished in lacquered, oiled or white oil.  The cross bars are in stainless steel or brass.

The Beak chair was also presented at the Copenhagen Cabinetmakers’ Guild furniture exhibition albeit the following year.  The light and organic frame highlights designer Ole Wanscher’s sculptural flair with the arms beak-like form inspiring the chair’s name.  It is available in oak or walnut in a number of finishes with the upholstered seat and back in three leather options or a large selection of fabrics.


AK2740 cabinet_Nissen & Gehl_Naver Collectin_Aram Store

New from Naver Collection are the AK 2740 and AK 2742 cabinets by designers Nissen & Gehl.  Made of ash, elm, oak or walnut, the top is in white Corian® and the legs are in brushed steel.  Both units have two internal drawers.  AK 2740, pictured middle, has two glass shelves and AK 2742 has a single glass shelf, another in wood and Corian® wine bottle storage. The tambour doors give the units a vintage appearance and the clever design renders them ideal in tight spaces.


Turn side tables_Nissen & Gehl MDD_Naver Collection_Aram Store

Also from Nissen & Gehl for Naver Collection is the series of Turn occasional tables.  Coming in three sizes at 50Ø, 65Ø and 80Ø cm the top’s edging is made of ash, oak or walnut in different treatments.  The flat surfaces are in the same wood on one side and in a choice of six laminate colours on the reverse.  The top can be flipped to reveal the underside and serves as a tray which can be moved from room to room.

JW round dining table_Jakob Wagner_Montana_Aram Store_oak and black metal

The JW table was designed by Jakob Wagner for Montana.  It comes in nine standard sizes, with round or rectangular tops, in a large range of finishes.  The aluminium frame can be polished or lacquered in black or white and the top is in laminate, linoleum, veneered or solid wood.  Suitable for domestic use as well as in office spaces, optional components are single or double plug walls or embedded power plugs. It is currently on display in-store at 140Ø cm with solid oak top and black legs.


Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman_Charles & Ray Eames_Vitra_Aram Store_cherry

The classic Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman are now available in a new American cherry veneer.  The wood grain is similar to the original cherry version but the colour is lighter with an almost yellow tone.  The chair was designed by Charles and Ray Eames in 1956 with the aim of combining an elegant appearance with ultimate comfort.

Eames Elephant_Charles & Ray Eames_Vitra_Aram Store_American cheery plywood

Another Eames’ product available in the new cherry wood is the plywood elephant they designed in 1945.  An offshoot of their moulded plywood experiments the elephant was one of a large group of animals which included frogs, seals, horses and bears, all created as toys or furniture for children.  Complex fabrication methods meant it was not put into production then.  One prototype was shown at the Museum of Modern Art in New York in 1946 and still survives in the Eames family archives today. Vitra released a limited edition of 1000 in oak and red-stained maple in 2007 which sold out quickly.  The company has now launched serial production of the Eames Elephant in plywood for the very first time.

Find both the Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman and the Eames Elephant on display in-store in the new American cherry finish.


Field serving platform_Helen Kontouris_Made by Pen_Aram Store


Field serving platform by Helen Kontouris is available in-store in oak and walnut. The base is in a fixed position whilst the top two shelves rotate making it is easier to share food or condiments with guests.


Woodturn mirror_grey + black_Michał Tokarski_Tre_Aram Store

The Woodturn mirror is by Polish designer Tomek Rygalik.  Made of solid ash and painted in matt black or matt grey it makes a perfect dressing table accessory.  Find it in-store only.
