Zirkel table by Vitamin Design

German furniture company Vitamin Design specialises in ecologically-friendly, solid wooden furniture. WGSN-homebuildlife takes a look at its latest collection.

Each piece in the collection is made from FSC-certified timber and surface-treated using natural oils. Working conditions for the craftspeople who manufacture the furniture are carefully monitored, with the emphasis on responsible manufacture even extending to the curtailing of unnecessary journeys by the team.

The company launched their latest collection at Milan's Salone del Mobile last month, including several new dining tables and chairs, a bed and a leaning storage system called Pisa (pictured above).

The GO table and Zirkel table both feature angular legs wrapped in knitted sleeves.

The Living table is designed to extend for large family dinners and social occasions, with extension leaves allowing it to stretch to 118cm.

The Somnia bed (pictured below) was also shown at IMM Cologne 2011, where it was awarded an interior innovation award by the German Design Council. The headboard is tilted to afford the multiple activities a bed must now be able to facilitate: watching TV, reading or even working from a laptop.
