Acne furniture

Jag är säker nu – Acne ger sig inte förrens de har tagit över världen. Iallafall små bitar av den, i alla tänkbara kategorier. Jag minns fortfarande deras HP-sås collab, men i detta fall har jag mer förståelse. (Jag hatar HP-sås)

Jag har inte sett möblerna i verkligheten, och får i brist på annat hänvisa till den information från Acne’s Johnny Johansson som finns tillgänglig:

“Carl Malmsten was one the most archetypal Swedish furniture designers from this group, and his work is extremely personal as i grew up surrounded by his pieces at my grandmother’s home. I began to research his work more in-depth and i came across the Nya Berlin (New Berlin) Sofa. The Nya Berlin was an archetypical piece of Malmsten’s design and was created for use in the Swedish consulate in Berlin. it has not been in production since 1949, so it was really inspiring to work with. with this sofa as a reference, I started to look at how we worked architecturally, instead of just treating say the upholstery. I decided as an alternative to objectify its form from a perspective play. As we do with fashion we played with proportion, lineage and structure – stretching, squashing and pulling the simplistic shape to create new sculptural forms. And why we chose to dress it in indigo? Denim is our heritage and i thought it was super interesting to treat the upholstery in the same way we approach our jeans – by washing bleaching and hand-dying the pieces to create very bespoke finishes. I just love how the fabric changes and grows with time. For me denim is always fashion.”
