Crafting furniture that evokes a sense of leaning back, hanging out and enjoying life, has shaped the brand ethos of Danish design firm Space Copenhagen. With their latest launch, the Slow Collection, they seem to reinforce this very principle with focus on comfort, quality craftsmanship and refined detailing.
Designed for Stellar Works, the collection was launched at the recently concluded Milan Design Week. Space Copenhagen sought inspiration from a chair they designed for restaurant 108, a former project. The ‘Slow’ series is an ode to modernism and consists of a stunning range of upholstered wooden furniture that explores the beauty of modern silhouettes.
The collection includes a lounge chair, dining chair, dining table and coffee table. The design evokes Mid-century Danish influences thrown in with liberal dashes of classic Japanese design. The furniture legs are characteristically narrow in order to elevate and support each furniture piece. Even decoration has been maintained to a minimum to enhance the sense of detail and shape.
Founding designers of Space Copenhagen, Signe Bindsley Henriksen and Peter Bundgaard Rützou have paid tribute to heritage and craft through their work, all while retaining a modern and comfortable design aesthetic.
Speaking about the collection, the dynamic duo adds, “we often use the term ‘slow aesthetic´ to describe the intention of our work. One of the aims for this collection has been to design a series of organic-shaped, sculptural and long-lasting furniture pieces.”
