&tradition News 2018
A new season means new collections from all our favorite brands andit is a great way to welcome Spring. I visited the new &tradition HQ, just to get a sneak peek, and the building is the most precious location. I know they have a lot of plans for this space for the future and that there is a long way to go, but I still think it looks amazing as it is right know. If they were opening a hotel. I would book a stay asap.
Here are some of the highlights from this season’s novelties. Enjoy!
Copenhagen by Space Copenhagen
Whether you want to focus on work or on life, the Copenhagen lamps will inspire you. With its satinised opal glass to shed light on the subject, in tandem with an oxidised brass stem and base. Add to that a dimmer feature, and you can adjust the light from cold to warm – and back. Imagine maritime gas lamps lighting the way on dark cobblestone streets dating back over a century. Now imagine a modern version that embodies the essence of this icon in a series of lamps crafted in satinised opal glass and bronzed brass – and you have Copenhagen by the design duo at Space Copenhagen. There is a version for each room. The floor lamp for the living room, the wall lamp for the bedroom and the hallway and the table tamp for the office. I can’t decide on which one I like the most but I am loving the opal glass version and I think we have a new classic.
Loafer by Space Copenhagen
My oh my. First time I saw this chair I immediately wanted to get one for my living room. The round shape, the straight lines and not to mention the colors it is available in!. It’s quite a challenge to create a design for a legendary building filled with iconic classics. Let alone the SAS Royal Hotel by Arne Jacobsen. Founders of Space Copenhagen Peter Bundgaard Rützou and Signe Bindslev Henriksen welcomed the opportunity with a solution that could fit with the past and look fresh long into the future.
Rounded in the back with a surface facing front, Loafer boasts a look that’s soft yet sharp. As the name implies, Loafer is all about relaxing. You can feel comfortable alone in your own world and equally at ease conversing with others, with several Loafers clustered together. The white version would fit in perfectly but I also hear the yellow one screaming my name.
Dutch designer Edward van Vliet draws on a myriad of influences to create pieces that create atmosphere. With Develius, one look at its elongated silhouette and it conjures up references to the chaise longue. Cluster the various sizes and shapes together as you like, in this modular sofa imbued with a luxurious sense of lounging. Develius is comprised of 16 different modular sofa components varying in depth, width and shape from rectangular to square. Including versions with and without arms, as well as a variety of poufs and the option of lush, loose cushions.
Create a cosy corner in a private space. Or a lavish lounge area in a more public arena. Assemble a love seat for two or an expanded version for four or more. The possibilities are practically endless.
LATO by Luca Nichetto
Named after the Italian word for side, Lato is understated yet striking in its own right. Inspired by the notion of a lollypop turned upside down, Luca Nichetto refined the shape to be more streamlined and iconic. Enhancing a monochromatic material mix in two colour variants. “With the ivory white version, you can elegantly blend Lato into your décor,” explains Nichetto. “Whereas the warm black version helps accentuate any interior.”
Amore mirrors by Space Copenhagen
Inspired by Arne Jacobsen’s SAS Royal Hotel, the Amore mirrors by Space Copenhagen capture the reflections, changes of light and rhythm outside your window – inside.
Amore is a discrete decorative object you can personalise. A set of three mirrors in descending widths able to mount horizontally or vertically, create a unique composition for your living room or an upscale lounge or lobby. The option of a shorter version makes Amore ideal above a vanity or down a narrow hallway.
