Following in the footsteps of his late muse Arne Jacobsen’s ‘Room 606’, Jaime Hayón designs ‘Room 506’ at the Radisson Blu Royal Hotel, Copenhagen. 50 years on, designed exclusively for the hotel, a little Jacobsen gem the Drop Chair, is the belle of the ball at this illustrious party. Re-launched by Fritz Hansen in September this year it was given a new outfit as part of Hayón’s vision for ‘Room 506’.

Formerly the SAS Royal Hotel, Arne Jacobsen oversaw all aspects of the original design in 1960, from the architectural façade down to the cutlery. Some of his most renowned furniture pieces such as the Egg chair and Swan chair were developed and went on to become design classics from this fruitful project.

“Coming from the Mediterranean, to be able to make an imprint on Danish design has been an incredibly special experience for me. The idea for this room is to create a luminous space that brings joy and genuine comfort through the Fritz Hansen designs along with some of my own designs and art.”
Jaime Hayón

This is a celebration of two brilliant designers who although from very different cultural backgrounds have a common design ethos; the appreciation of organic lines, minimalist values, fine craftsmanship and exceptional materials.

Hayón, as did his predecessor, oversaw every detail of Room 506 from the linen to the furniture. His signature Ro Armchair in dove grey, Favn Sofa in navy, Analog Tables, and decorative ceramic Bosa Table, sit handsomely on the terracotta carpet. The Drop Chair, feminine in crushed velvet, glows in the company of her new cohorts. Complementing the interior with soft light, his A-Balls Pendant and Chinoz Lamp, along with custom decorative objects embrace this traveller’s haven.

Jaime Hayón excels at inducing the same sublime serenity that Jacobsen is famous for, but adds his own playful charm. For all of you lucky enough to find yourself in Denmark it’s nice to know that both rooms are just waiting for your company.

Helsinki-based graphic artist Inka Järvinen’s ‘Moonmachine 1’ series is a beautifully controlled architectural studies of linear planes, morphing graphs, linework and shadow. Contemplative visions of an ordered mind, they are works of minimalist beauty.

Precise and emotive, Järvinen’s monochromatic palette is punctuated with Yves Klein blue, soft pinks and pale grey greens. As a collection her works are a rounded narrative of methodical framework, crafted yet orderly sculptures they bleed at their edges, embracing blank space and a soft enveloping black fog.

Starting her creative career with a fashion degree, Järvinen soon found she was more interested in the illustrative side of the process and by following this intuition, she worked her way through a graphic design degree. From there, she co-founded ‘Tsto’, a creative agency with a client list that includes Artek, Nokia and countless art associations.

American fashion designer Rosie Assoulin’s Spring 2015 Ready-to-Wear collection spirits you away with its relaxed yet sophisticated style.

It is clear to see the origins of Assoulin’s inspirations, that of the work of American ceramic artist Betty Woodman. Famous for her deconstructed vessels of feminine silhouettes with their vivid abstract glazes Woodman’s work is free-spirited and her palette is vividly reminiscent of small pastel villages cascading down the coastal hillsides of Italy. Assoulin has taken some of Woodman’s more traditional vase shapes and reinterpreted them using raffia into handbags, also employing this unconventional material to make that fabulous golden apricot tiered skirt.

It is that quintessential Mediterranean colour palette of emerald, lemon, terracotta, sage, rose and siren red, with that elegant sense of structure that is so signature to Rosie Assoulin. Tiered fabrics flair out, boxy pants, tied waists and shoulders, cascading decadent yardages, plunging necklines and bare shoulders that are demure but vivacious. With concealed zippers to add or remove layers of frills these outfits can easily shift from day to night.

The antiquated backdrop only enhances the majestic couture of her incredibly sculptural garments. These are sophisticated outfits, full bodied and poised, with a wink to the glamour days of old.

Melbourne based stylist Marsha Golemac and photographer Brooke Holm have come together to create ‘Workbook’ a visual diary and exhibition of nature’s beauty in juxtaposition with intensively restrained styled studio images.

Golemac and Holm have been collaborating across editorial and commercial assignments for many years. ‘Workbook’ is the culmination of their individual professional pursuits in studio styling and outdoor photography, a collection of still life and landscape images that are at once symbiotic and contradictory.

The images created are hauntingly beautiful couplings. Vast and serene landscapes, wonderlands of our earth, harmonise with drifting paper, obscure objects and stylised paper motifs. Refined and arresting, ‘Workbook’ is a lookbook of human interactive interpretation with the organic. Soft hues of natural light in the measureless expanse of nature find companionship with the minuscule.

Limited copies of Workbooks well as large-scale prints are available for purchase.

Architectural light fittings by Flos take on a new life under the lens of Swedish photographer Carl Kleiner in this striking geometric puzzle with plenty of personality. This is the result of a collaboration between Spanish art director Omar Sosa and Kleiner, one of the finest commercial photographers of our era.

Whether deconstructed or whole, these fittings stare inquisitively at us or peek off frame with almost robotic qualities. Each component is carefully and lovingly placed within its composition. Materiality, colour, depth of field and relief giving a sense of respectful sincerity that these perfectly engineered industrial products deserve.
