Clerkenwell Design Week 2014: Archer Humphryes Architects studio pays an homage to designer Robert Adam in the Fratelli Boffi collection
During the Clerkenwell Design Week in London, Fratelli Boffi presents some pieces of its last collection After Adam at the Archer Humphryes Architects studio. Sculpted forms inspired by classicism, but revisited with a modern take, are the leitmotiv of After Adam. The English architects Archer Humphryes wanted to pay an explicit homage to XVIII-century Scottish designer Robert Adam. The old cabinet-making tradition and the handcraft experience of Fratelli Boffi give life to a wide range of products where materials and forms are the absolute leaders. Woods and essences, metal, brass, bronze, silver, glass, hide and leather, as well as styles inspired by architecture and combined with sophisticated productions and decorations, merge in an eccentric collection that, as usual, makes room for the ironic, playful vision which is typical of the Brianza company. What architects Archer Humphryes wanted to create is a collection of furniture that responds to contemporary comfort, while remaining modernly functional, despite detaching itself from the precious legacy of tradition. The whole concept develops through modules of elegant simplicity focusing on reinterpreting works by Adam inspired by Georgian décor, with the addition of the accurate engineering, deeply contemporary touch of the English architects.
