Steve Leung aims to make a difference with a new 'imperfect perfection’ furniture collection, Pianpian
Steve Leung Designers (SLD) has launched a special furniture collection, Pianpian, the first collaboration with the international original furniture brand HC28 at the China International Furniture Expo (Shanghai).
The Pianpian living and dining room collection demonstrates an aesthetic concept of asymmetry in its sofa series, featuring two different materials to create a visual constrast. This is an idea also used on the coffee table and shelf design, creating an interesting visual effect and an intriguing user experience. With its carefully-planned functionality, the collection offers different combinations and design details such as rounded corners, emphasising its 'people-oriented' design spirit.
In addition to SLD’s signature design quality, a high quality of craftsmanship and attention to detail has been paid in terms of paint, wood and soft furnishings.
Leung says he interprets the new collection as a process of thinking inspired by a series of "why" questions – why do things appear to be symmetrical? Why do they contain only one material ? Why can't we put two kinds of material together? Why does the division always be at the centre? Why can't it be at the side? Why does a chair always have two arms? The answers he found are exemplified in Pianpian, which will be launched internationally in October this year.
