Acne are slowly taking over our lives – clothes, films, kids' toys – and we are delighted! We revealed a couple of weeks ago that the Swedish mega-brand was adding furniture to the mix, and now we have pictures after they unveiled it at a party in Paris last night.
Inspired by the work of renowned Swedish designer Carl Malmsten and, in particular, his New Berlin sofa. ‘With this sofa as a reference, I started to look at how we work architecturally, instead of just treating, say, the upholstery,’ revealed Acne's Jonny Johansson. ‘I decided to objectify its form from a perspective play. As we do in fashion we played with proportion, lineage and structure – stretching, squashing and pulling the simplistic shape to create new sculptural forms.’ The odd proportions of the pieces create a modern edge to a classic design. But the best bit? They dressed them in denim! This is Acne after all. ‘For me denim is always in fashion.’
