Selected by Richard Baird.
A continually updated collection of some of the best brand identity, packaging and graphic design work for furniture-related businesses, reviewed and published on BP&O. This post features work by Tsto, Ghost and Bedow, and covers freelance designers and studios, manufacturers and retailers, and moves between bespoke, batch and mass manufacturing of tables and chairs, lighting and tableware, modern utility and moments of craft and tradition.
Between them these effectively play with graphic impact, in colour and form, and often feature a strong textural component in the use of image, material or finish. Be sure to click the images to read more about the project, the intentions of each design, and how these work alongside other assets. Check out more from BP&O Collections here.

Salbini, formerly Fesal, is an online retailer of premium European furniture and appliances based in southern Italy and shipping internationally. It deals in both one-off purchases and tailoring for large commercial projects, offering both local and global brands. Fesal comissioned Studio Brave to rename and refresh its brand and overhaul its online store. While the project features revisions to type and the introduction of colour, it is the combination of cropped imagery shot by Traianos Pakioufakis and high quality material choices that stand out as a simple and compelling of articulation of craft, quality and elegance. These images link printed materials such as post cards, business cards, letterhead and certificate sleevers with a redesigned e-commerce website.
The first issue of LogoArchive was conceived, designed and sent to the printers within a day. It was inspired by a panel discussion that took place the day before at Somerset House as part of the exhibition Print! Tearing It Up. Following the successful launch of three issues, LogoArchive returns with a very special Extra Issue in collaboration with Canada Modern, designed and edited by Blair Thomson, documenting the forms and colour of Canada’s modernist symbols. The LogoArchive Extra Issue – Canada Modern is available from counter-print.co.uk.
