The focus of a world’s fair is on how to make life more beautiful. They are each a collection of innovative designs, distinctive ideas, and architectural landmarks, which is why they’re the perfect source of inspiration for the Expo collection.
Your interior is a prime example of who you are; a mirror into how you see the world and what you feel is beautiful. They are so much more than just an assemblage of furniture. In fact, they are more like ‘pieces of art’ that you can showcase in your home. Pieces that make improve your life, making it even more beautiful. Pieces that marry comfort and beauty. Our Expo furniture is designed with all this in mind.
Firstly, the 19th-century world’s fairs served to introduce the public to new inventions, developments, and devices. To this day, these remain collections of things to make life and the world more pleasant. At the same time, they are invitations to expand your view of the world. It is that open-mindedness and 19th-century hunger for progress that you’ll find in the Expo collection, in both its distinctive designs and the materials, including metal, quartz, and high-quality fabrics and leather.
The products in the Expo collection are named after cities that have hosted the world’s fairs. The design of each piece of furniture also reflects the spirit of those times. For example, the Zaragoza poufs build a bridge between old and new, just like the Bridge Pavilion designed Zaha Hadid does. The various levels of Japan’s skyscrapers are mirrored in the Osaka wall rack. And can’t you just see the Habitat 67 residential complex in the lines of the Montreal sofa?
Open-minded is the perfect single descriptor for the Expo collection. This is precisely why our designers have allowed for enough variation within the collection for you to give it your own unique twist.
