The SAS Royal Hotel turned to Space Copenhagen founders Signe Bindslev Henriksen and Peter Bundgaard Rützou, who designed a chair that would look lovely in the hotel - and actually anywhere. Loafer.
“The SAS Royal Hotel lobby is an essential part of their legendary interior,” says Henriksen. “It’s enormous and elegant. We wanted to design a piece of furniture that could create a sense of intimacy in this very open space.” “At the same time,” adds Rützou, “The design had to relate the signature spiral staircase and the circular columns of the space. A comfortable design that would somehow also make you feel protected. Sitting alone or in a group, without feeling too exposed.”
Whether for an exclusive hotel, club or lounge, or a private living space, Loafer offers the ultimate in luxury. The freedom to lounge in style forever.
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.
