Acne Furniture

January 26th, 2010

The Swedish creative agency Acne, which is mostly known for its fashion brand, presented its first furniture collection during the Paris fashion week. The started off from a Swedish design classic by Carl Malmsten: the Nya Berlin (New Berlin) Sofa. He designed it for the Swedish consulate in Berlin and hasn’t been in production since 1949. Acne stretched, squashed and pulled the simplistic shape to create new sculptural forms. The designs are of course upholstered with denim which they bleached and hand-dyed. I’m curious to see them in real life.

Gluejeans … I always like it when a name is self explanatory. I can’t believe that the seams aren’t stitched but just glued. Apparently they didn’t let me do an extensive user test.
