Jaime Hayon has revealed his design for Room 506 at Copenhagen’s iconic SAS Royal Hotel (now the Radisson Blu Hotel) which includes his latest lighting designs for Parachilna, the Aballs Suspension Light and the Chinoz Table Light.
Commissioned by Fritz Hansen, Hayon has transformed room 506 in an ode to Arne Jacobsen’s original design. The interiors feature furniture, works of art, bedspreads and lamps by the award winning Spanish artist and designer.
Speaking about the design, Hayon said “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. Together with Fritz Hansen, I have created bespoke designs just for this room, always in reflection of our shared principles of working with the best materials and aiming for simplicity and maximum comfort.”

We were there when Archiproducts sat down at the bd Barcelona stand at Salone Milano and interviewed the great Oscar Tusquets (great socks and all), Jaime Hayon and Doshi Levien. It was a flurry of lights, cameras and action and in a way, this moment embodied the excitement that the fair displayed.
Finally, the video has made its way to the web! From the beauty of a Gardenias bench by friend and fellow bd Barcelona collaborator Jaime Hayon, Oscar speaks about his friendship with Savador Dali and the products he has designed from Dali paintings including Xai, the limited release taxidermy bedside table. Jaime takes to the microphone and discusses the Low Lounger, the newest piece to add to his collection, and the expansion of the Gardenias collection, now available in an indoor version. Doshi Levien in all their fabulousness speak about the inspiration and shapes of the Shanty collection: the cabinet and mirror set.
See the video below – it’s a great way to further understand the latest in furniture deign direct from the designers.
There is no question that Lzf Lamps have mastered the art of wood.
Their lighting products use and manipulate this natural material, allowing us to appreciate its inherent beauty and admire its strength and agility.
Thus it came as no surprise to discover that Lzf are the brains behind The Wood Collector – a calm and sincere blog devoted solely to the admiration of wood in all its forms. It is like a metaphorical expansion of Lzf’s lighting products.
Sandro, co-founder of Lzf Lamps explains his fascination with wood:
That it gets old and gnarly with age! Seriously though, it’s like a feather duvet in winter, it’s about comfort, homeliness, warmth. Everything that we love about furniture, architecture, nature: it is all related to wood. It’s the craftsmanship, the know-how of how to work with this anarchic natural material. You have to understand the material to make something from it. You can’t just pour it into a mould, you have to select it, love it, it has uniqueness, individuality and in a way you must respect it for it to work with you.
There can be a lot of time well spent at The Wood Collector, its contents peacefully forcing a kind of soulful reflection by conveying such a passionate story.Share on Facebook

Inspired by a classic, the Solo updates the Eames Shell Chair, transforming it from its industrial roots to a comfortable upholstered alternative. Optioned as a dining chair, lounge chair and barstool – this sophisticated chair is perfectly situated both domestic and commercial settings. The piece is titled “Solo” due to the isolation one can obtain from reclining in the lounge chair.

Originally slated as a variation of the classic Bentwood, the Duet Chair takes a methodical and almost organic shape that is sure to win favours in the contract and hospitality markets.
