The Studiomama collection represents a milestone for Another Brand as it’s the first of several design collaborations to be released. The result is a truly unique and versatile set of products imbued with the distinctive Studiomama spirit. They are a perfect compliment to Another Brand’s current work and design ethos - simple, great, useful products, made well, and affordable. True to Nina’s Scandinavian roots, simplicity and integrity are the trademarks of their work; a pared-down, contemporary, but characterful aesthetic combined with a democratic belief in good design for all. A passionate belief in designing for the real world go a long way to explaining the timeless and unpretentious qualities of their work. But whilst Studiomama’s work can be simple, honest and minimal it is always playful and humorous. An attitude that appealed immediately to the Another Brand team when the collaboration was conceived.
“We hope that these products will be used in many different contexts. Our trestle for example is very versatile and can be used to support table tops that have different material/colour finishes on both sides. Also a single trestle can function as a side table or a coffee table simply by turning in different ways. We often strive to achieve a degree of multi-functionality where possible in our work. Our hope is that our work will not date and have a degree of longevity so they can be passed onto future generations.”The first products in this collection launched in September 2017 include:
1x1 Trestle Dining Table
1x1 Trestle Coffee Table
1x1 Trestle Console Table
All Trestle’s are made from Solid Oak finished in Clear 5% Gloss Lacquer with choice of Clear Glass or Amber Glass tops.

Furniture Linoleum is a unique surfacing material. The material is naturally flexible and can be applied on all kinds of constructions.
