&TRADITION IS PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE THE LAUNCH OF THE LOAFER CHAIR BY SPACE COPENHAGEN, DESIGNED FOR THE LOBBY OF THE SAS ROYAL HOTEL.
How do you modernise an icon of modernity? A building designed by Arne Jacobsen, seen as the father of Danish modernism? The SAS Royal Hotel turned to Space Copenhagen founders Signe Bindslev Henriksen and Peter Bundgaard Rützou, who designed a chair that would look lovely in the hotel - and actually anywhere. Loafer.
"The SAS Royal Hotel lobby is an essential part of their legendary interior," says Henriksen. "It's enormous and elegant. We wanted to design a piece of furniture that could create a sense of intimacy in this very open space." "At the same time," adds Rützou, "The design had to relate the signature spiral staircase and the circular columns of the space. A comfortable design that would somehow also make you feel protected. Sitting alone or in a group, without feeling too exposed."
Loafer was just the solution. While its semi-circular shape echoes the circular elements of the lobby, it's quite soft yet well defined. Expressing a design idiom that fits in with the past, adding a cutting edge that feel fresh. All with the aim of keeping the SAS Royal Hotel as the embodiment of a modern design experience, which Jacobsen intended all along.
Of course, the name Loafer is all about feeling really relaxed. What's more, it addresses the hybrid habits we have, with home as a place we often work and office as a place where we'd like to feel at home. As Rützou sees it, "People want to have an informal meeting where they can lounge long-term. We designed Loafer to be not too laid back and not too upright." In terms of adding to any décor, "With everything so curated with complex details," notes Henriksen, "Loafer is a simple, classic silhouette that allows other elements in a space to be decorative."
"Seen in a context outside the SAS Royal Hotel, Loafer is almost like a club chair but without being too snobby," says &tradition CEO / Founder Martin Kornbek Hansen. "It's elegant, with a sense of class yet very soft, comfortable and approachable. More than anything, it's this mix of timeless beauty with humanity that we always look for at &tradition." Whether for an exclusive hotel, club or lounge, or a private living space, Loafer offers the ultimate in luxury. The freedom to lounge in style forever.
