    Morgan’s Rakino wins Product of the Year at FX Awards 2019

    The award-winning furniture collection by Morgan was designed by Tim Rundle and was launched earlier this year at Clerkenwell Design Week…

    Contract furniture brand Morgan has won Product of the Year at the 2019 FX Awards, which took place on November 27. Prior to Sleep & Eat where Morgan unveiled the Kaya collection, the British furniture brand launched Rakino, which juxtaposes soft sculpted upholstery with a strong, low line frame.

    The family of lounge chairs and tables feature crisp timber detailing, emphasised by a clean linear structure.

    Interviewed by Hotel Designs shortly after the collection dropped, Tim Rundle said about the collection: “The Rakino collection stands out due to its striking timber architectural frame, with a strong, square, clean aesthetic, combined with a soft sculpted and slim line upholstered shell that is held within the frame. The frame is very open and honest and is a reflection of Tim’s eye for detail and our passion for precision CNC manufacturing and a hand-crafted finish.”

    “It’s been a pleasure working with Tim, who brings an international perspective to Rakino,” said Katerina Zachariades, design director at Morgan back in May. “His experience in furniture, lighting and interior design enables him to develop new product ideas with an understanding of commercial demands. We have enjoyed developing this chair and refining our production methods to achieve the light, simple structure that defines it.”
