At designjunction, one of the many shows taking place during London Design Festival, British furniture manufacturer Modus released an impressive ten new products by renowned international designers. You can see all ten on their site, but we’ve selected the five best to share with you here. Park Lane’s thin profile belies its comfort. The thick, cushy seats and upholstered arm rests are unique features on such a trim frame.

Inspired by Japanese sandals bearing the same name, Geta is a beautiful collection of storage cabinets based on individual modules. The three options for the base and top combine with internal units to create a modular storage solution in various configurations for meeting spaces and bedrooms.

The elegantly formed plywood shell of Hold has been specifically designed to support people turning in their seats in today’s flexible work environment. Hold offers a comfortable elbow rest to aid working and a wrap-around back that allows the user to turn, lean and be more flexible for impromptu meetings.

We love furniture with integrated privacy elements. We can see this as a standalone piece in a home, grouped in different colors in a hotel lobby or used in a bar or lounge for more intimate seating arrangements.

Pengelly updated his award-winning 2001 shelving unit to include adjustable units for personalized design options. Like Sodeau’s chair, we can see this in a variety of domestic or commercial environments.
