Bohinc Studio has launched its new collection ‘Afternoon Tea’ at London Design Festival. The nine new pieces, designed by Lara Bohinc, include dining chairs, armchairs, a sofa and tables in delicious sherbet colours.
Lara Bohinc was a design consultant for many luxury brands including Montblanc, Gucci and most notably Cartier, a position she held for over a decade. Bohinc’s ability to create works of iconic beauty stems from her familiarity with materials and manufacturing methods. The principles she applies to all her designs are the use of the finest materials and an obsession with the deconstruction and reconfiguration of pure geometric form.
I wanted to create pieces with a sculptural aesthetic to fill this void; some are creature-like shapes that emanate friendly and tactile qualities – they’re even huggable. And I wanted other pieces to look delicious, applying dramatically curvaceous patisserie forms to make them seem good enough to eat.
The pieces convey the same sense of sweet indulgence that an afternoon tea does. They are in pretty pastel and bold brown tones and caress their wearer with their sensual shapes – a real treat.
I used fabric to create the feeling of comfort and embrace. I love to evolve fresh circular forms and this collection continues that geometric aesthetic, but this collection is a more feminine expression, one that moves away from angular metalwork.
For the London Design Festival, the pieces will be presented in a cosy residential setting in a London townhouse, along with lights from the 2021 collaboration with Roll & Hill and rugs and wall hangings for Kasthall.
Bohinc’s signature style is a mix of contradictions: bold yet light, graphic yet fluid, angular yet feminine.
