The Fly Series by Space Copenhagen is a lounge collection made up of two sofas, an armchair, two tables and a pouf. Pushing the idea of lounging to its fullest, Fly is a series that allows the user to sit, lie, rest, and relax. Unlike many of the sofas and easy chairs in Scandinavian design history, Fly does not impose any particular posture onto the sitter. The seat itself is optimised for comfort, with loose cushions for the back that can be arranged according to the users own needs. But Fly adheres to tradition in other respects; the frame of the sofa and armchair, with a slatted back rest, is made from solid oak, treated with white pigmented oil or smoked oil. It is the type of material and treatment that ages with true grace, only becoming more beautiful with time.
Space Copenhagen gathers much of their inspiration from travels abroad, often in the form of ambience and mood. An example could be as simple as a particular wall in the streets of SoHo, New York, the distressed look of which makes its way into Space Copenhagens imagination.
Graduates from The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Architecture, their scope of projects extends from furniture, design objects and art installa- tions to interiors.With a roster of clients like Georg Jensen, By Malene Birger, the Louisiana Museum of Modern art and five-star Hotel D’Angleterre. Not to mention Michelin star Restaurant NOMA, voted the Best Restaurant in the World.
Together they strive to create an elegant, intimate atmosphere, drawing on
a mix of materials and subdued tones. Using organic materials such as wood, stone, leather and brass, which age gracefully over time.
The FLY Lounge Series is all about lounging. It lets you sit, lie down, rest and relax anyway you choose. Instead of imposing a certain posture, the loose cushions are there for you to freely arrange or re-arrange. Select either of the two sofas or the pouf, and you’ll experience cosy with a capital C. Space Cop- enhagen’s brilliant balance of soft and sturdy, as well as their attention to the universal need for comfort makes this a modern series with a classic appeal –
