While Acne is mostly known for its fashion brand, it presented last January its first foray into furniture during haute couture week in Paris.
The label re-imagined, upholstered with hand-treated denim, and distorted the iconic New Berlin sofa by Carl Malmsten which he initially designed for the Swedish consulate in Berlin. The series hasn’t been in production since 1949.
“Our goal was to objectify its form from a perspective play (…), stretching, squashing and pulling the simplistic shape.” – Jonny Johansson, Acne’s
The pieces definitely have an unusual style and design – A gorgeous decorative seating collection for those who can afford it.
