Iconic furniture design meets fashion-forward bohème in this exclusive collaboration between Republic of Fritz Hansen and lala Berlin. A strong alliance is created when the Berlin based fashion label makes their mark on Arne Jacobsen's renowned Series 7™ chair. Expect deep, dark and enchanting colours and materials when we dress the iconic chair in high quality velvet in a special edition for all fashion- and design lovers.
The collaboration between Republic of Fritz Hansen and lala Berlin consists of a front upholstered Series 7 in the colour Lala Barberry, a fully upholstered Series 7 and Dot™ stool in the colour Lala Caspian. All three designs have powder coated legs in a colour matching the upholstery adding a modern and monochrome expression to the design.
In other words, the collaboration is the result of keeping the Series 7 relevant in time, the collaboration is a fashion-furniture alliance where bold colours and velvety materials meet modern era furniture design. A 6 months long process has bloomed to a perfect match between the softest velvet in the warmest colours enhancing the feminine shapes of the Series 7.
The choice of colours is also an interpretation of Leyla's Iranian heritage. The midnight blue Lala Caspian and the burgundy red Lala Barberry both fit the palette of lala Berlin and that of Republic of Fritz Hansen, according to the designer. About the colours she adds: "The dark blue takes me back to midnights in the city of Isfahan, Iran, and the Cimmerian water of the Caspian sea, and when I see the burgundy shade, I can almost taste the barberries used in traditional Iranian cuisine". The two shades are also widely used in the creation of Iranian rugs and just like in a mesmerising rug pattern, you can immerse yourself and almost get lost in the velvet, saturated shades of this collaboration.
Both Series 7 chairs and the Dot stool come with a matching monochrome base. Furthermore, the front upholstered version in Lala Barberry comes with a high gloss painted shell in a matching colour.
The special lala Berlin x Republic of Fritz Hansen collection is available in Republic of Fritz Hansen Concept Stores as well as selected stores worldwide from October 2017 to October 2018.
