    The EDITION collection includes limited edition and bespoke products by the artists and designers and who continually push the boundaries. These bold, audacious and rebellious visionaries, including Zaha Hadid, Salavador Dalí, Maarten Baas, Verner Panton and Drocco / Mello + ORDOVAS, have been described as eccentrics, individualists, trailblazers and nonconformists. Understanding their inspiration and genius adds a further dimension to appreciating the pieces in the EDITION collection.

    EDITION responds to the increasing interest in collecting modern and contemporary furniture, lighting and décor. Living Edge selects the limited-edition pieces for their eclecticism and boldness that combines artistic form and function. Each has a story and characteristics that contribute to its value and is numbered or marked by the manufacturer to reflect its exclusivity. The pieces are contradictory and challenging, celebrated for their iconic status, luxurious craftsmanship, legendary designer, ingenious concept or expression of a cultural ideal. 

    Gufram is the Italian funhouse that brought radical design to the world with playful, ironic and irreverent furniture, objects and collectables. Guido Drocco and Franco Mello designed the original Gufram Cactus in 1972, since which time the 1.7-metre coat stand has gone through a number of colourful iterations. Radiant Cactus (limited edition 1/44) has luminescent particles that give it a fairy-tale-forest dream-like vibe, while Nerocactus (limited edition 1/500) is black and Another Green is green. 

    Verner Panton and Vitra revolutionised furniture design in the 1960s with the Panton Chair. Fifty years later, Vitra continues to revolutionise the chair with two limited editions that realise Panton’s imaginative and forward-thinking vision. Panton Chrome and Panton Glow have reflective and luminous finishes that emphasise the iconic chair’s sculptural qualities. They continue to bring Panton’s inspirational visions to life and reflect his ongoing mission to make people’s surroundings more exciting.

    Jaime Hayon is known for his distinctive work that blends fine craftsmanship with experimentation and a good dose of fantasy and humour. Hayon’s Happy Susto for BD Barcelona embody the designer’s unmistakable character. The human-sized porcelain objects are reminiscent of an animated man with arms turned upwards. Red Monkey Side Table is functional and humourous, both sculpture and side table that can be used indoors or out. 


    Terence Woodgate and John Barnard’s Surface Table for Established & Sons brings Formula 1 racing-car design technology to furniture. Exploiting the inherent rigidity of layered carbon fibre, the sleek and sophisticated table spans 2.4 metres and has a super slim 2-millimetre edge.

    Based in Czech Republic, Lasvit brings together artists, designers, glassmakers and engineers to transform glass into breathtaking light fittings and installations. Das Pop by Maarten Baas draws on the classic, recognisable shapes of chandeliers and pendant lights and combines Baas’ clay-covered arms with Lasvit’s hand-blown glass for a modern, comical twist.  

    Living Edge will exhibit EDITION at this year’s Sydney Contemporary Art Fair from 13 to 16 September. This is an exclusive opportunity for art and design admirers and collectors to be among the first in Australia to view the new, limited-edition and collectible pieces by these revolutionary and forward-thinking designers. More highlights of the collection can now be viewed at Living Edge’s dedicated EDITION website, www.editioncollection.com.au. and on Instagram at @edition.collection
