Sé, 60 Fulham Rd
15th-23rd September 2018
To celebrate this year's London Design Festival, European furniture brand, Sé, known for its elegant and characterful collections by leading international designers, will present its Collection IV by designer Ini Archibong.
Sé’s flagship showroom, located in the heart of London’s Brompton Design District on the Fulham Road, will become home to a curatorial showcase of key pieces from Collection IV alongside complementary pieces from Sé’s existing collections. This will mark the first time that Sé's highly-anticipated Collection IV is presented in the UK, following its launch at this year's Milan Design Week.
Designed by Ini Archibong, Collection IV, entitled ‘Below the Heavens’, references the threshold between heaven and earth, a place of serenity that Archibong feels encompasses the spirit of Sé; a spirit of sensual beauty, celestial perfection and sensitive fragility. Archibong’s recent work has shown a great interest in both form and materials, using glass, marble and brass to express themes drawn from mythology and spirituality.
The sublime 'Moirai' chandelier, likened to a constellation of clouds, will illuminate Sé’s showroom window and guide visitors through to an assemblage of key pieces from Collection IV, including the 'Gaea' pendants and newly released oval 'Heracles' table. Internationally renowned French rug manufacturer, La Manufacture Cogolin along with artists Kiko Lopez and Steve Howlett, will add finishing touches to the installation with a rug by India Mahdavi, mirrored glass artworks and sculptures in bronze.
