A look into the art of fur­nish­ing and the de­sign­ers bring­ing a space to life



In­te­rior de­sign­ers know well how much goes into cre­at­ing a space. Like­wise does La Deux, the lux­ury fur­ni­ture dis­trib­u­tor al­le­vi­at­ing some of this cre­ative load by as­sum­ing the role of con­sul­tant as well. “La Deux is a plat­form. We’re not ob­li­gated to pro­mote a spe­cific brand – we pro­mote design,” says prin­ci­pal Alan Tse. Since 2012, La Deux has been work­ing with fur­ni­ture de­sign­ers abroad and in­te­rior de­sign­ers at home, bridg­ing the for­mer to a wider au­di­ence and the lat­ter to cu­rated in­spi­ra­tion. “We’re very happy to bring in­ter­est­ing ideas to Hong Kong de­sign­ers, to help stim­u­late their cre­ativ­ity,” says Tse, ref­er­enc­ing a mix of styles and gen­er­a­tions of de­sign­ers all moving the in­dus­try for­ward. We take a look.室內設計師總有著無限創意,而奢華傢具銷售商La Deux也不例外。公司總監Alan Tse向我們細說其品牌理念:「La Deux是一個雲集各式各樣精緻傢具的平台。我們希望能夠推廣作品本身,更甚於特定的品牌。」自2012年起,La Deux一直與國際和本地室內設計師緊密合作,致力引導大眾認識風格迥異的創作。「能夠讓本地設計師有機會接觸兼收並蓄的時尚設計是一件令人倍感興奮的事情。」以下是一系列精彩的作品。


The light­ing brand fea­tures lamps in ev­ery form, from pen­dants to wall fix­tures to floor lamps, in quirky as­sem­blies – such as the Aballs Chan­de­lier – as well as the fan­tas­ti­cal, in­clud­ing the Gweilo floor lamps, com­prised of hand-sculpted sheets of acrylic bent like fab­ric and il­lu­mi­nated by LED strips. The spec­tac­u­lar cre­ations are de­signed by a ros­ter of cre­atives in­clud­ing Jaime Hayon, Stephen Burks, design duo Neri & Hu as well as in­te­ri­ors con­sul­tants Viveca Gon­za­lez and Shukri Gir­gis.不論是吊燈、掛牆燈又或是座地燈,你都可以在燈具品牌Parachilna找到你的心水之選。Aball­s吊燈外觀輕盈亮麗、以亞加力膠片和LED燈帶製作而成的Gweilo座地燈造型觸目。系列囊括Jaime Hayon、Stephen Burks、Neri & Hu和室內設計顧問Viveca Gon­za­lez和Shukri Gir­gis的創意設計。


“Switzer­land’s very fa­mous for mak­ing watches, and to make watches, you must have a lot of very pre­cise ma­chin­ery and tools,” says Tse. “With this back­ground, the way Swiss brand Röthlisberger cuts and makes fur­ni­ture is among the most pre­cise around the world.” Their col­lec­tions are also some of the most beau­ti­ful and thought­fully de­signed, marked by in­no­va­tion and whimsy yet not with­out func­tion­al­ity and ease – as il­lus­trated in pieces such as the Ovolo oak ta­ble, with curves and mag­nets in the right places, or Susi & Ueli Berger's Stack of Draw­ers, a pil­lar of boxes in di­ag­o­nally-striped wood ve­neer. Tse分享:「瑞士向來以精湛的手錶工藝著稱。一隻完美的手錶講求手錶零件和配件的精妙配合。瑞士品牌Röth­lis­berg­er同樣有著注重細節的態度,致力提供精雕細琢的傢具設計。」品牌設計新奇獨特卻不失美感,完美體現美學外觀和實用功能的重要性。糅合磁鋼面材和流暢線條的Ovolo橡木桌子前衛新穎;來自Susi & Ueli Berg­er的多重層疊抽屜則以一系列的木質飾面製作,對角線條造型別樹一幟。
