Issue No. 2 TASTE

No. 6 The James Collection

In everything we design, purity of thought within the concept and maintaining focus are essential. As we design more furniture collections, our notions about how to approach them has become clearer and less influenced by the external, with a kind 
of relief from having too pragmatic of an objective.

The idea that we are swiftly progressing into an un-engendered era seems born of either naiveté or the misguided wish to smooth the edges of social change. If anything, it would instead appear that we are being encouraged to widen the aperture, to bring a more nuanced understanding to how myriad popular notions of masculinity and femininity can be teased apart and recombined in compelling, surprising ways. 

The James Collection embraces this complexity, featuring pieces that balance strength against warmth, bold wireframe lines given a lighter touch in their celebration of negative space. Comprised of four pieces—a chaise, desk, stool, and bar cart—each piece is engineered with an exacting eye towards precision and ergonomic design. The collection gives a sly nod to performance automobiles before again complicating that narrative by utilizing light taupe matte leather, walnut, and an unexpectedly warm soft-touch black metal. In doing so, it doesn’t pander to our expectations, but demands—albeit gently—that we get with the times.
