André Fu's new homeware collection for Lane Crawford encapsulates his signature style of calm understatement
Celebrated Hong Kong-based architect and designer André Fu is known for his understated interior design aesthetic, seen in upmarket hotels and restaurants across the world. The award-winning designer brings his expertise to an all new Lane Crawford homeware collaboration.
With the launch of André Fu Living in 2016, Fu set his sights firmly on home interiors; he has now created his largest homeware collection to date, one that captures the essence of his own take on hospitality.The collection comprises 150 items, designed exclusively for and available through Hong Kong department store Lane Crawford. It embodies two design concepts: Artisan Artistry – inspired by artistic expression; and Vintage Modern – featuring the geometric patterns of the modernist movement of the 1960s. The range includes coffee tables, dining tables, armchairs, lighting fixtures, tableware, bedding and lifestyle items such as scarves and perfumes.
Highlights include the Oak 3-panel screen inspired by Fu's '70s childhood memories, the Ripple table lamp with a glass shade that resembles a flowing waterfall, and the Interlock table with its curving, L-shaped base, all of which will lend a sense of calm simplicity and restrained elegance to any interior space.
"The essence of hospitality revolves around the creation of experiences," says Fu. "When people host guests at their homes, I hope the pieces contribute to their experience and act as a backdrop to a celebratory moment or simply integrate into people's everyday lives. To me, true luxury is in the experience and not just the aesthetics."
