Launching in April, Open Home is a groundbreaking new furniture collection that responds to the growing trend of fluid and open living spaces. Activities such as resting, dining, working, cooking and entertaining are merging in most modern homes so that spaces become more flexible in their purpose as do the objects that inhabit them.
The Open Home collection consists of elements that can define a sense of place within an open living environment. It represents a new philosophy for furniture design that changes the way we think about modern living space. The collection has a warm yet modern identity, combining high quality materials and sensual forms.
The Doshi Levien collection is made up of armchairs, sofas, occasional tables, lighting and rugs. The seating features elegantly curved backrests that envelop you while you sit and which seem to float above their wooden frames. The looping legs of the tables are airy and delicate, while the lamps cantilever dramatically over their bases. Elsewhere, the woollen rugs are emblazoned with a pattern of intricate coloured chevrons.
The 13-piece collection is based around light and dynamic pieces inspired by the elegance of Scandinavian modernism and mid-century Italian design. The Open Home pieces can be used to break down traditional four-wall structures, replacing strict living room layouts with sculptural furniture that looks beautiful from any angle.
