We’re delighted to feature in Luxdeco Top 50 Interior Designers to know in 2019. It’s a global look at who they have been inspired by and who they will be watching in 2019. We are so proud to be included amongst this stellar cast list alongside some of our own design heroes.
More masculine, sophisticated interiors of this London-based husband-and-wife team seem to be on the horizon. The design studio promised, in a 11th December 2018 Instagram post, “We have some exciting projects currently on the go; some private residential and some commercial contracts; we can’t wait to show you the end results so stay tuned!”
Some of the projects that we teased on Instagram were indeed completed and photographed in 2019. We’re really proud of these three …
Danish Summer House
This summer house tells a story about different people coming together to realise a client’s dream of a Danish retreat. We completed the project alongside renowned architect Knud Holscher on the island of Fanø located off Southwestern Denmark. For Staffan it has been the project of a lifetime: “I left Stockholm for the UK more than half my life ago and have worked on design projects in Asia, America, the Middle East and all over Europe. Here is a family who have lived internationally for years but whose souls also long for home – the design journey into this shared heritage was all the more rewarding”.
The pull of the summer house retreat resonates strongly with Staffan’s own childhood and values. “I take my own children back to our family’s summer house on the lake as often as I can. The connection with nature and the escape it affords from city life act as a reset button for all of us. When designing the interiors of Fanø I was determined to connect them as coherently and simply to the landscape as possible: to create a retreat from city life that extended to the choice of every material and piece of furniture”.
Fano is a place to decompress, to connect with nature, to put down cell phones and look out at the bigger more important picture. To be with their children, to be more at peace and live a simpler life. That’s what the clients wanted to achieve with the house. The amount of time they spend in it is testimony to its success as a home from home.
