Create an industrial feel

The freestanding modular planning of individual furniture pieces offer a practical way of living without dominating the open plan floor. It is “solitaire” planning in which each object has a relationship with its neighbor. Objects target the essential, drawing inspiration from the 1940s/50s, using the creative people in cities as a muse. Imperfections are celebrated: whether naturally occurring or created by hand, small flaws are honored for their individuality. It’s all about contrasts: modest and ostentatious, flea market find and design classic, thick and thin, light and dark, open and closed.

The individual room tells a story of the unique owner’s personality. Surfaces have a warm practicality. They are rough and untreated, but combined with metallic features, a more refined look is fashioned. Industrialized materials, simple lines and structures, functional appeal. Utilitarian details such as straps and belts in long-wearing materials such as leather and waxed canvas in earthy colours are increasing in popularity.
