The new furniture line ‘Islands’ by Krannen|Gille draws inspiration from the nautical bases used by the British to defend their coasts during WWII. Designer Johannes Gille describes these new models as "islands grown from steel."

Using "objects made of steel pipes, lacquered plywood and glass," according to the artist, Islands by Krannen|Gille combines the natural aesthetics of islets with the charm of modern compositions. These new additions evoke a futuristic appeal through the use of rigid angles and straight contours. The teal and gray color scheme works to create an elegant and sleek allure complementing the furniture’s slender outline.

Islands by Krannen|Gille brilliantly integrates natural grace and Art Deco with exquisite precision and finesse. This new installment by the Netherlands-based designers is sure to add an engaging, contemporary charm to any surrounding. Stats for Sea Fort-Inspired Furniture Trending: Older & Mild
