For two weeks in September, a hand-picked selection of classic and contemporary Ligne Roset furniture will be on show at Allpress coffee house in Collingwood, Melbourne. Guest curated by interiors supremos – Hecker Guthrie – the exhibition is called Living It Large in Small Spaces, and presents a furniture collection that responds specifically to the growing Australian trend of living in apartments and ever more compact spaces.
The curators have chosen pieces by some of the most well known contemporary designers today, including the brothers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, and grouped them into five spatial settings: eating, living, sleeping, working and outdoors. Each piece addresses the very particular needs of urban dwellers with an appetite for luxury, comfort and style.
“We’ve definitely seen a shift in people’s living requirements, and an increased need to cater for apartment living in an intelligent way,” says Frank Novembre, founder of DOMO, the Australian distributor of Ligne Roset.
The exhibition is open to design and trade community by appointment 5–19 September. The second week of the exhibition (13–19 September) is open to the public without appointment. Architecture Media is a media partner for this exhibition.
