The pleasure of sophisticated, smart formality in an architectural style inspired by 1950s Californian modernism. A range which includes three sofas, two armchairs and a chair with prismatic forms and shapes in a never-ending interplay of solids and voids. The materials used directly reference natural elements and their changeability in stark contrast with modern life. Visually harmonious, the collection indirectly revives the utopian vision of the period. Silver Lake is the name of a particular neighbourhood in downtown Los Angeles, which is renowned for homes designed by some of the great names in modernist architecture.
