Children’s Bedroom Furniture Pipi
Produced by Ivo Marinković Furniture Factory, Osijek, Croatia

The system of children’s bedroom furniture was designed to adapt to the growing child and represents an innovative solution of wooden joints and sophisticated integration possibilities. Small interventions transform the baby’s crib into a child’s bed, a desk and wardrobe, adjusting to the child’s needs.

Le Printemps Department Store, Paris, France

The work of Abraham declines the opposition between rough and invaluable materials, artisanal and industrial know-how. The model for Le Printemps was designed as a prototype of holiday home for the Paris region and it was presented to the exhibition 4 seasons, 4 houses organized by Saint-Gobain in 1964.

Reversible Child's Armchair
Produced by Mebloartyzm Cooperative, Wojnicz, Poland
National Museum, Warsaw

Reversible children’s chair is one of her first furniture projects that she designed for children. This furniture is marked by the beauty of its lines and proportion and lightness of its form, developed from the construction itself, and making full use of the material’s potential, non the less it’s multifunction as a toy.

Hanging Egg Chair
Produced by Sika Design, Rynkeby, Denmark

Nanna and Jørgen didn’t need to get out of their home to find inspiration for her work. A close attention to the daily life, to the details that make up the domestic and familiar environment, combined with an abiding concern for comfort and freedom of movement led to the accurate perception that the opulent furniture that surrounded them was highly inadequate for the small post-war homes.

MASP – The São Paulo Museum of Art
São Paulo, Brazil

The MASP expresses the intent made by Lina Bo Bardi to bring art closer to the general public. It had to give off an atmosphere that would allow the visitor to understand the work of art. The architect declared: “I did not search for beauty, I searched for freedom.” The MASP architectural solution is, in fact, direct and essential.
