Holly Hunt previews latest Studio collection set for September London debut

Illustrious home furnishings designer Holly Hunt has previewed her latest in-house Studio collection, which will make its London debut in the Mayfair showroom this September.

Illustrious home furnishings designer Holly Hunt has previewed her latest in-house Studio collection, which will make its London debut in the Mayfair showroom this September.

The Texan-born entrepreneur’s company, Holly Hunt showrooms and collections, designs, produces and showcases custom-made, luxury products with collaborating designers, including indoor and outdoor furniture, lighting, rugs, textiles and leathers.

In her latest Studio design collection, Chicago-based Hunt has made use of bold marbles, walnut wood and cast bronze. Here you’ll find the brand’s usual elegance mixed with a surprising playfulness, including side tables inspired by a sliced bell pepper and even a wall sconce which makes reference to the spines of a sea urchin.

Take a gander below at some of the latest pieces from the Holly Hunt Studio:

Bell Pepper Side Table
Carved from individual blocks of marble, the Bell Pepper Side Tables explore natural fluctuations in thickness and depth with minimalism.

Carlyle Dining Table
The Carlyle Dining Table is a contoured transitional debut. Tracing the walnut shape reveals legs that glide flush into solid brass sabots. A surface of consistent grain, Carlyle celebrates the purity of American walnut.

This fixture is a wall application of Stefan Gulassa’s Sea Urchin Pendant. The sconce is made up of the original design’s lucid plunge from cast bronze to cast glass with textured marks of the casting process granting the body a special resonance when illuminated.

Playa Sectional
This modular sectional system, Playa, is lounge seating with volume and cushioning that doesn’t sacrifice its architectural physique. A thin leather deck appears suspended over  sculpted, solid aluminum legs, and a walnut table option lends possibilities for multiple configurations.

Peso Dining Table
The curved shape of the Peso Dining & Side Tables is reminiscent of weights put on one side of a scale at pharmacies at the turn of the century. Updated with a stone top, this table looks and feels weighted in structure, creating a strong and tangible look.

Delta Occasional Chair
Ideal for a desk or pulling into a conversation, the Delta Occasional Chair’s suspension – provided by its cantilevering frame – brings contemporary comfort. A black, solid aluminum frame with channeled upholstery, is a combination of cutting-edge fabrication technology and haut-couture upholstery.

 

St. Germain NeoCon 2016St. Germain Lounge Chair
With a nod to 20th century French design, the St. Germain Lounge Chair is an industrial distillation of metal and attitude. Made of lacquered aluminum, the arms slope into legs alongside bronze detail.

The Tower Side Table is a composition of two sober geometries; ebonized American walnut and lacquer exterior halves of different heights are separated by a recessed bronze spacer.

 

 

Holly Hunt’s latest collection can be previewed from September this year in the Mayfair showroom.

Sculpture in the City, Art for Everyone

SEEN thoroughly enjoyed a preview of the 18 new artworks around the financial district’s square mile. Set up by The City of London in 2010, this excellent initiative expands its footprint every year, improving the area and proving that when people are happy, they work better.

Alex Evans at the Foundry Gallery, Chelsea Quarter: LDF17

The astute reader will have noticed that SEEN loves art about London. There are many artists in this city who draw (pun intended) their inspiration from it, none more so than Alex Evans whose fractal renderings hint at the entropic nature of urban life and perhaps also our anxieties and isolation in the 21st century. His latest exhibition ‘Invisible Systems’ can be seen at the Foundry Gallery, tucked away off the King’s Road until 26th October.
