As a trusted leader in the commercial furniture and interior design space, MarxModa is excited to share our comprehensive recap of Design 2023. From the innovative product launches to thought-provoking seminars, this year's event presented a wealth of inspiration and ideas that will shape the workplaces of tomorrow.

We're sharing some of the iconic pieces we got to see for ourselves:

Naughtone Morse Table System

Designed by John Tree

The Morse Table System transitions from dining table to solo work table or team work bench with ease, so that the same space can serve multiple purposes in the one day. It’s grown-up enough to be right at home in premium airport lounges, as a place to touch down with a laptop between flights, and yet it’s equally comfortable in design studios, as a surface for collaboration and creativity. Morse also fits right in in universities, as a table for research and learning.

Muuto Wrap Lounge Chair

Designed by Normal Studio

Wrap is a soft Lounge Chair with a blanket-like textile wrapped around its shell, allowing a deep sense of comfort with a strong sense of character. While its design is guided by the search for ultimate comfort, its generous shape is supported by a light steel frame creating a contrasting image of airy lightness. The draped upholstery is a result of extensive research and development as well as craftsmanship and knowhow. The Wrap Lounge Chair is simple, yet refined, combining a sense of ease with a strong design language. ​

Design Within Reach Chromeo Chair & Ottoman

Designed by Sarah Ellison

A DWR exclusive, the Chromeo Chair and Ottoman (2022) is Australian designer Sarah Ellison’s first foray into working with metal. Pairing curved chromed tubing and oversized, comfortable bolster cushions, Chromeo is a study in contrasts. Sleek and contemporary, with a wink toward its Bauhaus inspiration, this crisp new classic is offered in texturally rich upholstery.

Muuto Linear Steel Table

Designed by Thomas Bentzen

The Linear Steel Table brings new perspectives to modern outdoor furniture through its straight lines alongside the folded edges, half circular intersecting legs and small spacing for easy removal of water. Kept visually clean for long-lasting aesthetics, the Linear Steel Table finds its distinct character through subtle detailing and a simple expression, allowing for it to complement any outdoor setting. Pair the table with the Linear Steel Bench, designed in proportions that allow for it to slide easily under the table.

Design Within Reach Soffi Swivel Chair

Designed by Gabriel Tan

Comfort comes full circle in the Soffi Swivel Chair (2023), the first upholstery design by Gabriel Tan. With an eye to balancing sleek and soft, Tan took inspiration from the friendly, expressive shapes of inflatable furniture from the ’60s and ’70s, but in a luxe reinterpretation. “I wanted to design something soft and voluminous that gives an emotional feeling of comfort and protection,” says the designer.

Ligne Roset Pumpkin Swivel Chair

Designed by Pierre Paulin

First designed in 1971 for French president Georges Pompidou’s private residence at the Elysée Palace, Pierre Paulin’s Pumpkin Chair has been reissued by Ligne Roset. It’s upholstered nearly entirely by hand in fabrics exclusive to DWR, with channel tufting that adds definition to its softly sculptural silhouette on a versatile swivel base.

Muuto Couple Coffee Table

Designed by Sylvain Willenz

Inspired by the traditional tile table, the Couple Coffee Table is a refined merging of materials — FSC™️-certified (FSC-C028824) wood and ceramic stoneware. Made in a tactile ceramic stone material, it is a gentle nod to the durability of the brick, in aesthetics as well as quality. This sense of tactility is enhanced by the option of two different tabletop tiles; one with a plain and functional surface, the other with a more sculptural wavy feel. Choose between 36 prearranged variants spanning across various finishes and three sizes, from the petite to the grand coffee table with plenty of room for books and objects of affection. ​
