Frame of mind

Prestige (Singapore) - - AGENDA -

In­spired by the im­age of a tai­lor bent over his ta­ble with his fab­ric laid out in front of him, Por­tuguese de­signer Rui Alves has cre­ated the Tai­lor Sofa for Scan­di­na­vian de­sign brand menu. Like the tai­lor, Alves was keen to have his ma­te­ri­als on dis­play, thus cre­at­ing a sofa with a pur­posely vis­i­ble oak wood frame. “I wanted to show all of it — the struc­ture, the beau­ti­ful oak wood. Noth­ing should be hid­den, as is nor­mally done in sofa de­sign,” he says.
