From 20th to 24th September 2021, Bohinc Studio shows its new collection of furniture in the residential setting of a London townhouse. Each floor presents a different living situation: the ground floor is the dining area and study, the first floor is the living room and home library and the second floor is the bedroom with ensuite bathroom.
The new playful collection on show is Bohinc Studio’s most feminine to date, with shapes that are round, embracing and loveable. Further developing Lara Bohinc’s geometric style, the new pieces feature spheres and circles, with only subtle use of straight lines and angles.
Bohinc Studio presents the new pieces in a home setting which mixes period features and contemporary aesthetics, building on the brand’s signature style. Raw concrete and exposed brickwork contrast the period cornicing, decorated in a geometric fashion in dialogue with the original architectural lines. The mix of colour is pronounced - the walls are painted in dusky tones of light terracotta, muted pinks, cherry and brown tones, set against a backdrop of grey and black. The furniture contrasts the space with very light tones - soft upholstered seating pieces are presented in white, cream and slightly toned pink bouclé and furry fabrics. The tables are made in white or black stained wood or in lightly toned marbles. Additionally there are accents of bright colours with powder coated steel dining chairs in red or cherry colours.
‘I wanted to design a space that is happy, warm and inviting, full of character and contrast. I love to use colour to create mood and texture to create a desire to touch, adds Lara Bohinc. “I aimed to create a sensual space. The pandemic forced us all to spend more time at home, and I realised I wanted my pieces to make you feel loved, cocooned and happy. I also wanted to create pieces that look like they are good enough to eat. The collection’s name is an appreciation of the sweet comfort of an afternoon tea - happy, joyful and indulgent moments, a time when friends and family meet; an occasion very much missed in recent times.’
Materials play an important part in the collection, which contrasts soft textured upholstery seating pieces, with other tables and chairs presented in smooth marble, stained wood or metal. This collection has less metalwork than previous collections and has a soft and warm feel. All pieces are made by hand in the studio workshops in Europe and UK.
