A New Danish Furniture Collection Inspired by Typographic Weights
I can often spend hours adjusting the fonts on a document or project; a little bold here, a lightweight there. Turns out now I can do that with my furniture too: The new collection from Copenhagen’s Studio David Thulstrup — who teamed up with the newly relaunched Danish design company Møbel Copenhagen — is inspired by circular geometry and typography weights. Debuting last month at imm Cologne, the “fonts” family of chairs, lounge chairs and barstools, will be available in a range of styles — with or without armrests — as well as sizes, finishes, and colors. (The collection’s title refers to the varying heights and thicknesses of the cushion and backrest: bold, regular, and light.) In yellow, blue, and bone-colored upholstery, the pieces are solid and strong, but still have room for playfulness in the extra dashes of color from the piping. Also included in the new collection are a series of thin-legged side tables that employ the same livable design with a glossy finish. Are you a “bold” or a “regular”?
