The Motley III Collection by Samuel Chan for Channels

British design firm Channels is set to launch its latest collection of furniture and lighting – Motley III – at 100% Design in London, September 24th-27th.

As a follow-on to the award-winning Motley II collection launched last September, Motley III is a series of ten new furniture and lighting designs by Samuel Chan for Channels.

The series explores new geometric and organic forms and reflects Samuel’s signature purist style. Inherent in his approach is an ability to understand the ongoing potential of wood in new design. His work presents wood in a bold and simple way that requires no further embellishment. The designs demand the most exacting hand-finished craft while introducing new manufacturing processes – so giving this most traditional of materials a strong contemporary expression.
