This September, for London Design Festival (14th-22nd September), luxury European design brand Sé will transform its gallery to showcase – for the first time in the UK – ‘Below The Heavens’ Part II designed by Ini Archibong. Alongside this debut, part of the Sé gallery will be transformed with an installation from architectural embroidery atelier Studio MTX – part of Chanel’s ‘Maison d’art’.
Throughout design week, and including The Brompton Design District late night opening, Sé invites visitors to discover Part II’s new earthly and monumental furniture and lighting pieces. On display for the first time since the Collection’s launch during Milan Design Week, the highly anticipated sequel references, like its precursor, the eternal interplay between heaven and earth, this time focusing on a terrestrial aesthetic. The sequel introduces monolithic pieces which are statuesque and mature. The ever-expanding repertoire of Sé’s luxury finishes and materials is demonstrated in Part II’s exploration of new wood finishes and bespoke crystal colours.
The LDF presentation sees Sé continue its close partnership with prestigious design ateliers Studio MTXand La Manufacture Cogolin. Evolving the window panel concept revealed during Milan Design Week, Sé reprises its collaboration with Paris-based Studio MTX to create an unmissable and immersive moment. The embroidered panels, exemplary of MTX’s artistry, will be presented in three different design and finishes, all of which are exclusively available through Sé in the UK. Visitors will also experience new rugs from La Manufacture Cogolin’s latest collection by Elliott Barnes which will be exhibited together with a curated selection of artworks from artists such as Studio Earle and Kiko Lopez.
