Known for their work designing furniture, refined objects and interiors for high-end hotels such as The Stratford in London, 11 Howard in New York, the SAS Royal Hotel in Copenhagen, countless Michelin-star restaurants, private homes, art exhibitions, spas and golf resorts, the founders of Space Copenhagen are a design duo in high demand. Architects Signe Bindslev Henriksen and Peter Bundgaard Rützou seek a slow aesthetic, reflected in their intuitive approach to design that’s rooted in human behaviour. They continuously seek a sensorial mix of natural materials and textures. Aiming for a balance between opposites, in their fascination with contrasts, merging classic and modern, graphic and organic, light and dark. It’s all part of the design lingo they authored call Poetic Modernism. Space also co-created our Space Ovals, which function as decorative sculptures, lounge furniture and objects for stretching and enhancing a sense of wellbeing. Each oval is crafted in a different shade from our NUANCE collection, also made in collaboration with Space. www.spacecph.dk
