High Chair
When you're based in Solingen, Germany—home of Henckels and Wüsthof—designing knives is not the easiest way to get noticed, which is why the trio behind Supergrau recently abandoned the blade business in favor of more-daring housewares concepts: this seven-foot-tall chair (perfect for the corner of a loft), a handkerchief-inspired metal lamp, a leather-wrapped knife block built to handle years of abuse. No surprise: They all look sharp.

Low Chair
After Venetian designer Luca Nichetto noticed that all his favorite old-school Italian watering holes had similar tastes in furniture—cheap metal-frame café chairs outside, simple Scandinavian sorts inside—he combined the two archetypes in one all-weather seat. Its plywood shell peeks out from under a perfectly faded ombré lacquer as if it had already seen its share of aperitivos.
