Good News x H&M


Unisex sneaker collection with a smaller environmental footprint

We’ve joined forces with the London based footwear brand Good News on H&M’s first ever shoe collaboration featuring innovative materials. Known for their playful and retro-inspired sneakers, Good News is continuously exploring new, innovative materials for their shoes and share our commitment to sustainability.

The Bananatex® fabric is used for the upper of the black low top sneaker combined with other sustainable elements like recycled rubber soles and recycled cotton.

Magazin x Softline


Where do you go to wind down and find a moment of peace?

Our living spaces have never been more important as sanctuaries of calm from the turmoil of the outside world. In tribute to their enhanced centrality, we’ve partnered with homeware pioneer Magazin and the Danish furniture brand Softline to present the KOLTER ECO daybed.

Designed for durability and easy care the daybed features a removable custom cover made from the Bananatex® fabric and a modular frame made of Scandinavian spruce. The simple yet sleek design adds a practical and sophisticated presence to any room and embodies our take on harmony between environments both interior and natural.

Bananatex® Collection


The Roll Pack

The Roll Pack is based on the concept of a versatile container that can adapt to its content due to a flexible roll top closure. A large, expandable main body contains multiple inner compartments, including a Merino felt-lined sleeve which fits up to 15“ MacBook Pro®. A YKK® metal zipper with a unique cotton tape instead of the usual plastic one allows direct access to the main compartment via side entry, and the layout of small interior pockets is arranged to give frequently-used items a practical spot. Adjustable backpack straps and a modular handle provide versatile carrying options.

The Hip Pouch

The Hip Pouch is a small bag for holding essentials with adjustable hip and shoulder carry options. Two inner compartments allow for the safe storage of small items. Its main compartment fastens with a YKK® metal zipper with cotton tape, and the Hip Pouch’s water-resistant finish is complemented by vegetable-tanned leather trims. The Hip Pouch is available in Natural White and All Black.

a collaboration


Inspired by the diverse architecture and cultures of Europe, the modular MAE Chair was created. The German design studio PALAIUS has visited native craftsmen who have been passing on traditional production methods in their families for centuries.

The MAE Chair is handmade in European manufactories and combines traditional craftsmanship with innovative materials. Within the framework of the BAZAR NOIR Editions, the connection between the innovative sustainable material BANANATEX®, which is made purely of abacá and banana fibres, and the durable steel frame of PALAIUS was created.

BANANATEX® was developed by the Swiss bag brand QWSTION and is being used for the first time in furniture production for the exclusive edition of our MAE Chair. In addition to its sustainability, this fabric is also extremely resistant and - thanks to its beeswax coating - waterproof, making it the perfect material for the MAE Chair, which can be used both indoors and outdoors.

The BAZAR NOIR Editions are not only chosen based on their marvellous appearance, but the manufacturing process and selected materials have to match our criteria, our believes and our design language.
