Salone Satellite 2013
Thomas Jenkins will be presenting new products during Salone Satellite 2013 on stand B37.
A single axis folding chair where the frame coils through 360 degrees to create a centre line for the pivot. Both the seat and frame are continuous loops that rotate around the leg via a radial mechanism that controls the open and closed positions, whilst providing the necessary strength and support.
A two layered picnic blanket. Scandinavian summers are short so you often end up sitting on damp ground. Knapp solves the problem of a wet bum by dividing the blanket in two, one waterproof layer and one that’s nice to sit on. The two layers can be separated for washing and drying using the buttons in each corner.
A table light that explores new ways to use flexible LED light sources. Whereas most conventional lights have their light source at the centre, Hollow Light is designed around a ring of light on its perimeter. This light then bounces off the hollow tube creating a uniform circular pattern of light on the surface below.
A family of candle holders where mass takes priority over form. Each item has an identical mass of 200 grams and so each item only differs from the next in the material used; Aluminum, Titanium and Brass. Their heights are therefore a result of the materials density.

Coiled will be presented as a working prototype for the first time at Salone Satellite 2013.
Taking inspiration from both artisan hand cut crystal and mechanised gear cutting techniques. The glasses have a look and feel that compliments the technique and tradition of single malt whiskey distillers. Each pair of glasses has a opposing helical gear profile cut into it so they mesh perfectly together. The series takes its name from the engineering term for the gear size used.
Module Two is manufactured by Bomma.
A set of body care brushes designed for Iris Hantverk of Sweden – a manufacturer that employs visually impaired craftsmen to produce high quality products.
The series uses a pin in the joinery detail that fixes the handle to the head. Designed to meet the specific requirements of the Hantverk manufacturing brief and keep production costs low, the range has only 4 separate parts. Different hair types and cutting techniques are used to give each brush a unique feel and use.
Inspired by the stacks of magazines and newspapers in most living rooms, Slot Boks is an open back bookcase with an integrated cord that holds the contents neatly in place.
The design utilises simple mitre joints, strengthened with an equal angle ‘L’ section to regain stability lost by removing the back of a typical box. The introduction of this detail allows for an opening between the front and rear sections. This slot, from which the product takes its name, is used as a guide for the moveable organiser cord.
Slot Boks will be available at Design Torget in Summer 2013
