Hightower: Fall ‘17January 9, 2018
Hightower tapped an international team of designers to craft its multifaceted Fall ‘17 furnishings collection. Inspiring connection and creativity within open-plan commercial spaces, the collection is comprised of eight pieces: Nest Easy, Lonan, Kilo Islands, Jaxson, Kona, Kona Tables, Four Cast’2 Wood, and Ruby.
“Hightower partners with young, global product designers who align with our passion for simple, flexible, and attainable designs, while staying committed to manufacturing within the U.S. with great attention to detail and quality workmanship,” says Natalie Hartkopf, co-founder of Hightower.
Providing pockets of privacy within an open plan environment, the Nest Easy chair, conceived by Swedish firm Form Us With Love, has a high back that measures 47¼ inches tall, a seat height of 17¾ inches, a width of 35 inches, and a depth of 36 inches. The chair is available in variety of upholstery options, with a soaped oak or black powdercoated steel base. Nest Easy can be paired with a coordinating ottoman for added comfort.
San Francisco–based Justin Champaign of Most Modest addresses acoustic concerns with the lightweight Lonan privacy screen. Characterized by the soft touch of its upholstery finish and the warmth of its wood accents, Lonan adds a subtle sound barrier with its substructure of acoustic padding wrapped in quilted Camira fabric. The screen, which measures 61½ inches wide by 81 inches tall, has a powdercoated metal base offered in nine colors. Incorporating the signature V-shaped detail of the Danish design team behind Strand & Hvass, the Four Cast’2 Wood chair pairs a tapered oak wood base with the flexible comfort of a colorful polypropylene seat. Measuring 17½ inches wide by 20 inches tall with a seat height of 18 inches, Four Cast’2 Wood’s shell comes in nine colors, with optional seat pad or fully upholstered.
