Ligne Roset, the high-end French furniture company, showcased their latest collection as well as their new collaboration with 2LG and Custhom studios at the Westend showroom during London Design Festival.

The ‘Triangle’ Collaboration

Uniting each company’s expertise, the “triangle” collaboration uncovered the poetically deconstructed one-off Slice chair designed by Pierre Charpin. The chair was outfitted in the Ligne Roset factory in France with the engineered printed velvet from the Forest Hill collection, and was inspired by the Victorian home and design muse of Russell Whitehead and Jordan Cluroe, the founders of 2LG.

2LG (short for 2 Lovely Gays) is an interior design company based in London, focusing on ‘Simplicity, elegance, functionality and [their] signature use of colour.’

 

Custhom is a research-based design practice working with handmade processes, experimenting with graphic-led design and sold internationally.

The Forest Hill Print Collection

The Forest Hill print collection focuses on deconstructed florals designed in collaboration between South East London design studios, 2Lovely Gays and Custhom. It comprises wall covering with screen printed metallics and a range of fabrics including printed velvet, Devore sheers and printed linens. The print features on Slice.

The Slice Chair

Slice is almost 20 years old. Sketched out in 1996 and produced by Cinova in 1998, its production and distribution remained, at this time, at a level which could well qualify as confidential. The galerie Kreo took charge of distribution in 1999, thus helping it become known, inserting its colourful image into the vast ‘landscape’  of contemporary design in the early years of the new millennium.

Ligne Roset’s happy decision to reissue Slice today, in a version with re-evaluated comfort, gives this model a whole new  life whilst remaining in tune with the project’s original intentions: to offer an accessible form of seating which is at once classic in shape, its lines clearly evoking the Club armchair, and contemporary in use with the possibility of adding footstools to vary the dimensions of its seat.

“At Ligne Roset, we believed that associating the velvet printed Forest Hill (100% cotton) by upholstering Slice designed by Pierre Charpin would enhanced the initial and similar creation concept: deconstruction.”

If there is no doubt at all that Slice is a seat, it is also an object the intention of which is to invite us to live with colour.

The Slice showcased at Ligne Roset Westend (which is now shown at the Ligne Roset City showroom) is a unique piece.
