Inside Hem’s Ice Cream Social During Salone del Mobile 2016
At this year's Salone del Mobile, Hem introduced six new products: the Bookmatch Table by Philippe Malouin; All Wood Stool by Karoline Fesser; Hide Table by Karoline Fesser; Zig Zag shelf by Studio DeForm, a new fabric for the Koti Sofa, Dash by Form Us With Love and a new splatter-painted version of Last Stool by Max Lamb.
Influenced by the Italian tradition of gathering with friends and family to eat, share and socialise, Hem showcased these new designs at Ice Cream Social. Visitors were treated to four custom gelato flavours inspired by the four colourways of Max Lamb's splatted-painted Last Stool. Created in collaboration with Italian gelato maker Gelateria Rigoletto, the flavours are prosecco with peach splatter, green tea with strawberry white chocolate splatter, Modica chocolate with coconut pulp splatter and yoghurt with blueberry splatter.
Visitors can gather at h+ on Via Varese to enjoy custom gelato among Hem's newest products as well as existing favourites from the brand. Each afternoon this week, Ice Cream Social has a guest host, including collaborators and friends of the brand.
