Loafer Lounge Chair SC23
The Loafer SC23 lounge chair – a design that is intimate yet, open. Even in public spaces, it somehow makes you feel safe and protected. It’s quite a challenge to create a design for a legendary building filled with iconic classics. Let alone the SAS Royal Hotel by one of Denmark’s own icons – Arne Jacobsen. Founders of Space Copenhagen Peter Bundgaard Rützou and Signe Bindslev Henriksen welcomed the opportunity with a solution that could fit with the past and look fresh long into the future. Loafer.
“Whenever you design for a hotel interior, there are many factors to consider,” explains Rützou. “With the SAS Royal Hotel, the lobby is fundamental as a focal point. The piece we were asked to create had to work with their spiral staircase and the circular columns elsewhere in the space”. “By definition, a lobby is so open,” adds Henriksen. It’s easy to feel a bit exposed. With Loafer, the shape links with the circular design lingo.
Rounded in the back with a flat surface facing front, Loafer boasts a look that’s soft yet sharp. As the name implies, Loafer is all about relaxing. You can feel comfortable alone in your own world and equally at ease conversing with others, with several Loafers clustered together. The Loafer SC24 Chair, Loafer SC25, and Loafer SC26 sofas are also available as part of our collection.
Established in 2005 by Signe Bindslev Henriksen and Peter Bundgaard Rützou, Space Copenhagen is a design studio that works across multiple disciplines from furniture, lighting and refined objects, to art installations, art direction and interior design for private homes, hotels and restaurants all over the world.
The ambition is to forge new paths by balancing opposites — classic and modern, industrial and organic, sculptural and minimal, light and shade. Duality and contrast. Curiosity as a fundamental human condition. The studio’s intuitive approach embodies designs that are distinctively shaped by the given circumstances, functional needs, and a fundamental interest in human behavior. It is a sense of and belief in a slow aesthetic that centers quality and longevity.
