Irish interior designer David Collins has teamed up with Italian furniture brand Promemoria on his first furniture line to date - albeit a capsule collection. Launching at the Salone del Mobile, the lamps, tables and chair take the brand in a decidedly pared-back direction. Forms are elegant and clean, while details are luxurious yet subtle, like the slim panel of bronze gripping the centre of the side table.
'Symmetry and geometry are the inspirations for this small capsule collection,' says Collins, whose weighty design CV includes stores for Alexander McQueen, hotels such as The London NYC in New York and The Apartment at London's Connaught, as well as residential projects across the globe. 'The pieces articulate the strength in restrained and deceptively simple shapes.' Lamps bear triangular or hexagonal bases and shades, while the chair has an elongated wooden back that extends to the floor.
A small collection it may be, but it's perfectly formed.
