Inclass: What you missed, if you missed the launch
As far as product launches go, Inclass is our largest to date.
It had to be. After all, we’re talking about a collection of 16 ranges of furniture.
Modern and elegant, the Inclass collection has super-clean lines that will stand the test of time. The collection is the result of collaborations between Inclass’s R&D team and talented designers from around the world.
Situated by the Mediterranean Sea in Spain, Inclass is a dynamic family company founded in the late 1990s, dedicated to the manufacture of contemporary designer furniture. Inclass Collection typifies the avant-garde creativity of some of Europes greatest designers, including Jorge Pensi, Simon Pengelly, Carlos Tiscar, and Christophe Pillet
After first discovering Inclass at the 2014 Orgatec Furniture Fair in Cologne, we have been keeping an eye on their growing range of innovative designs. After visiting their impressive displays at subsequent Orgatec events, we were highly impressed with the clever design details, sculptural forms, and beautiful finishing. With the increasing use of breakout seating in the modern agile workspace, at the 2018 Orgatec, we knew the time had come – we just had to bring the exclusive Inclass collection to New Zealand.
We enjoyed two great evenings in our Auckland and Waikato showrooms with Architects and Interior Designers from all over NZ popping in, curious to see, touch and try the renowned range of Inclass furniture
Feedback on the range was overwhelmingly positive, with designer’s trained eyes picking up on the subtle design flourishes, quality materials and finishes, and construction techniques. Of particular interest was the modular Lapse sofa series, with much intrigue as to how a 4.5 seat sofa could have such a minimalist wide span look while proving absolutely solid and deflection free support (spoiler alert – it’s all to do with the heavy gauge steel subframe lurking beneath).
In true Crestline style, we had our own in-house chef cooking fine Spanish cuisine with a selection of delectable Spanish Tapas, Chorizo and cheese boards on the menu, paired with refreshing beverages such as the popular Sangria and Spanish Estrella.
They are both memorable events and we were privileged to meet many new people and get so much positive feedback from the A&D community.
Thank you to all of you who joined us to celebrate the launch of Inclass in NZ – and keep an eye out for further additions to the range in the near future.
