    During Clerkenwell Design Week, Morgan launched a new collection, Kyoto, and unveiled additions to the popular Metro and Manhattan original seating ranges.KYOTO Collection

    The Kyoto linear bench system, inspired by Japanese gardens and bridges, is a new collection designed by Morgan studio. The Kyoto benches overlap at either 90 degrees or 20 degree offset to create asymmetric, reception area seating compositions.

    The benches encourage you to take a less direct route from A to B, pause, sit and take in your surroundings from a new perspective as you would in a Japanese garden. The intersections are defined by floating table tops.

    The 10 Kyoto compositions available can be specified in contrasting fabrics, with tables available in finishes from timber and Formica to glass and Carrara marble; giving the designer the scope to compose a bold graphic statement or opt for a more tranquil tonal palette.

    METRO 135, 130RB & 130SKB

    The Metro collection, designed by Katerina Zachariades, is growing with the addition of three playful new designs. Hide and seek in the new 135 high back lounge chair; this acts as an upholstered booth echoing the bold organic lines characteristic of the Metro collection.

    Fully upholstered sides with wings provide acoustic screening and offer refuge from the surroundings. They also provide the opportunity to contrast fabrics.

    Already offered with a timber and metal swivel base, the Metro 130 lounge chair is now available with a wire sled (130SKB) and timber & wire frame rocking base (130RB); available in a powder coated finish with beech, oak or walnut species timber.

    MANHATTAN Work Booth

    Responding to the changing nature of the workplace, the new Manhattan M1High Back designed by Katerina Zachariades expands on the popular modular seating collection to facilitate flexible working.

    Combining a comfortable sit with acoustic screens and pivoting laptop table, the Manhattan Work booth can be specified with either a power socket or wireless Aircharge®port, making it the perfect spot to make a quick phone call, write a report or grab a working lunch.

    The modular nature of the Manhattan collection lends itself to bold fabric combinations, and is available with a steel leg or show wood leg detail.
