DESCRIPTION

Tembo’s curiously intriguing profile was inspired by an elephant’s ears and it’s easy to picture the African creature from which the lounge chair takes its Swahili name. Within the enveloping shape, soft upholstery offers hours of comfort for either high-spirited socializing or just quietly curling up with a good read. From the outside, the edgy sculptural contours delineated by Danish design duo Noergaard and Kechayas make for a self-assured statement piece. From Copenhagen-based New Works, which aims to add a thought-provoking spin to the Scandinavian design idiom.

ABOUT THE BRAND: NEW WORKS

NEW WORKS

“I come from an architectural education,” says Knut Benedik Humlevik, creative director of New Works. "It's a field that has taught me a lot about how to attack and work with a concept.” The Copenhagen-based design house melds a boldly sensual approach with the vaunted legacy of Scandinavian design. “One cannot deny that a lot of inspiration comes from the furniture ‘heroes’ of the past centuries,” says Humlevik. Not to mention “how their influence is applied in works of other designers in our time.”

New Works was launched with a series of sculptural objects grounded in 4 core values—Natural, Experimental, Rough, and Craftsmanship. With an emphasis on materials including concrete, marble, mirror and tactile metals like rough copper and oxidized aluminum, the collection has quickly expanded to a full range of furnishings that still push at the boundaries where art meets design. As a noted product designer himself and now directing the New Works stable of collaborating designers, Humlevik says, “It’s surprising where I find inspiration; it can come from very small things that have lots of character.”
