Juxtaposing soft sculpted upholstery with a strong, low line frame, the new dining chairs in the Rakino Collection by Morgan feature crisp timber detailing, emphasised by a clean linear structure.

“It’s been a pleasure working with Tim, who brings an international perspective to Rakino,” said Katerina Zachariades, Design Director at Morgan. “We have enjoyed developing this chair and refining our production methods to achieve the light, simple structure that defines it.”

The original collection, which won Product of the Year at the 2019 FX Awards, was first unveiled at Clerkenwell Design Week. Rundle told Hotel Designs that the series of furniture items were inspired “in the best way”, following a trip to see the production. “In Hampshire I discovered a factory staffed by some serious experts in upholstery and timber joinery,” he said. “I really wanted to make the most of these capabilities, and maybe even push them a little to see what was possible. In terms of the chairs themselves I wanted to create something that felt quiet and inviting, that could feel right in your home, while obviously being appropriate for hard working contract environments.”

CDW 19 PREVIEW: Morgan to launch new collaborative projects

CDW 19 PREVIEW: Morgan to launch new collaborative projects

Morgan, contract furniture designer and manufacturer, will showcase two new collaborative projects at its London showroom (1 Dallington Street, EC1V 0BH) during Clerkenwell Design Week from May 21 – 23, 2019…

Morgan is gearing up for Clerkenwell Design Week where it will unveil the result of two authentic collaborations with outside designers.

The architectural Rakino lounge collection, by designer Tim Rundle, juxtaposes soft sculpted upholstery with a strong, low line frame. The clean linear structure emphasises crisp timber detailing born from a dialogue between the precision of CNC manufacturing and a handcrafted finish. The collection will offer two lounge chairs and a selection of coffee tables.

Following Mark McClure’s bold and dynamic installation at the company’s showroom two years ago, Morgan has collaborated for a second time with the artist to create a selection of new feature coffee tables for the Goodwood collection. Pushing the boundaries between furniture and art, the tables are characterised by strong geometric inlay tops with splashes of brass.

Also on display will be the recent additions to the Rio table collection. Combining skills and expertise with architect Mehran Gharleghi of studio INTEGRATE, the expanded collection of tables includes geometric 3D printed components. The first of its kind within the sector to include this cutting edge technology with a commercially viable price point, the sophisticated and singular collection is not to be missed.

The new products will sit alongside a complete showroom transformation, following the theme ‘Plant a Seed’. Morgan has invited artist David Shillinglaw back to its showroom, following the company’s first collaboration in 2015.

“Flowing across the front of the showroom will be an organic lighting installation by Tom Raffield”

‘Alive in the Human Hive’ promises to be an energetic and colourful large-scale art installation that will fill the double height main wall. The piece will be a representation of the human landscape, informed by both local and global environments and the ways we experience the planet. Recent smaller canvases by David will also be up for grabs.

Flowing across the front of the showroom will be an organic lighting installation by Tom Raffield, made up of Aram and Quill pendant and wall lights as well as a spectacular Flock chandelier, inspired by the organic shapes, movements and sequential patterns that surround us.

Launch party, live music and more

Join Morgan at its buzzing Clerkenwell showroom for a number of social and thought-provoking events throughout the week.

Tuesday will include a panel talk by Double Decker curators Wilhelm Finger and Melita Skamnaki, entitled ‘Redefining Hotel Art’, on how they challenge stereotypes in hospitality. The talk will lead into Morgan’s annual product launch party with tasty canapés and live music.

On the Wednesday, Tom Raffield himself will be giving a talk entitled ‘Taking Inspiration from Nature’. During the talk, Tom will share his passion for the organic forms and structures found in the natural world, and why they play such an important role in the brand’s designs, materials and signature curved aesthetic.

Morgan is delighted to have been awarded a 2016 Design Guild Mark for their Japanese inspired Kyoto collection. Designed by Morgan Studio, Kyoto is a system of linear benches that interlock to create informal seating. It is fully upholstered and features timber, glass or marble table tops.

Set-up to reward excellence in the design of volume furniture production, the Design Guild Marks are awarded by a distinguished panel of judges from the fields of furniture, hospitality, commercial, retail and media. There were a record number of entries again this year which were assessed for excellence in design, the use of materials, manufacture and function.

Morgan Managing Director, Rodney McMahon, comments, “This is our seventh Design Guild Mark since they were introduced by The Furniture Makers’ Company in 2008. This one is particularly satisfying as it underlines our successful growth into the workplace sector, for which these benches are a great solution for receptions, presentation areas and adhoc meetings.”

New RIO tables were launched by Morgan during Clerkenwell Design Week to match with the existing RIO seating.

In collaboration with studio INTEGRATE, the Rio collection by Morgan is one that explores the craft of yesterday versus the craft of tomorrow. As well as the timber and upholstered models there is a 3D printed component that creates an intricate curved sculptural arm.

It is constructed using a mathematical algorithm and printed in polyamide or resin. A glass top floats over a 3D printed basket which links it to solid turned timber legs; in a mix of an intricate ‘lacework’ component with a rational structure and form.

There are just two months to go to Clerkenwell Design Week, 24 – 26 May 2016. In addition to inspirational product launches, the central theme for Morgan at this year’s event in their 1, Dallington Street showroom is wellness in the workplace.

Relaxing music, an indoor garden and alternatives to spending 6 hours at a desk will be ideas that are explored as ways of improving the working environment.

A programme of events will include an art installation, talk and workshop by Remi Rough that considers the effect of art in our environment and colouring in ‘therapy’.

Three key product launches will include additions to the Manhattan collection and a new Lucca meeting bench with stools that are ideal for informal meetings and break-out areas. Visitors who were wowed last year by the 3D printed RIO seating collection, can anticipate occasional tables also using 3D printing that will be unveiled during the event.

Showcasing Morgan’s expertise in fine upholstery and beautiful timber detailing, the pieces all have a square form with fitted seat cushion, and the lounge chair has an optional, elegant walnut frame.


Morgan - Boston and Metro

Product Spotlight: Morgan reacting to rise of laptop tables with two new examples

1000 476 Daniel Fountain

Laptop tables are growing in popularity as interior spaces are designed to be more multi-functional. Hotels are responding to the requirement for guests to work anywhere, whether in the lobby area, cafe or their bedroom.

While many offices are creating more informal spaces for working and interacting with colleagues, in favour of traditional fixed desks. Whether for work or pleasure, so many people now have mobile devices that it makes sense for the combination of seating and table to facilitate this in a comfortable way.

The latest Metro laptop table from Morgan is inspired by the form of a boomerang. The foot of the metal base is shaped and scaled for ease of use and the table top is a geometric form based loosely on a triangle with squared corners. Offered with a solid wood lipped detail and a variety of laminates, this laptop table offers a lightweight and versatile solution.

The Boston laptop table with circular top and cantilever base looks attractive in traditional all timber finish, but is also offered in a versatile range of materials. Bases can be powder coated metal in any colour and the top can be sandblasted or coloured glass, laminate or patterned glass to suit individual design briefs.

Both tables are 620mm high and can be pulled toward the user with the foot sliding under the seat to allow an ergonomic seated position.
