Imagine an arcade or a park without benches. Impossible. The parkbench is as important in urban spaces as salt is in soup. The most exciting models in an overview.
Losing one’s keys is history: German designer Sarah Kalvelage from Celle developed charming “Schlüsselwesen” (“key creatures” – a hanging system for keys made of DuPont™ Corian® that stops keys from getting lost. A limited edition “black & white” of these useful accessories will premier at this year’s international furniture fair imm cologne 2014.
The intricate design from Sarah Kalvelage consists of small, circular slats screwed to the wall, which take on matching tags formed like a keyhole. The limited edition “black & white” executes special versions for her and him in four attractive positive-negative variations. This way, every key has its dedicated place and won’t be swapped anymore.
While the first Schlüsselwesen featured an interesting material combination of DuPont™ Corian® for the slats, and wood for the tags, for “black & white” she was inspired by the new DeepColour™ Technology (patent pending) from DuPont™ Corian®. These little helpers are fabricated completely made of DuPont™ Corian®. The new colour Deep Nocturne is a deeper, more intense black that features an improved wear performance and easier fabrication.
Small keyhole reminiscent of the silhouettes of man and woman were milled into the slats with a depth of 6mm. The similar keyhole forms the matching key tag using the opposite colour. Both variations are available in the DuPont™ Corian® (in Deep Nocturne and Glacier White colours) and can be purchased on the website of Sarah Kalvelage herself.
