Design House Stockholm Lulu Pouf
Is it a chair? A plaything? A sculpture? What is art and what is design is hardly relevant when it comes to Färg & Blanche’s Lulu. It might resemble a pet, but then a quite stylized one that waits to be explored. Lulu is surely nicely soft and strong: to sit on straight up as on a chair, or to recline on as with a chaise lounge. And for a more intimate and connecting way of a seating experience. Lulu is a sculpture that is also friendly practical. Figurative and imaginative, ready to vitalize any interior. Its like living furniture that populates your home, cries Fredrik Färg interrupted by Emma Blanche who claims that Lulu will let you relate differently to a furniture object, almost like with a pet. Alone, or a whole flock of them, Lulu will make your home relatable in a new and harmonious way.
The design duo has once more doubled down on playful designs, this time in a multi-use furniture piece that adds new flexibility to any environment. With colors in cream, brown, and yellow, Lulu can stay put in a corner waiting to be of use, already given any space a vibrant almost alive feeling. Lulu is ready to bounce all alone or together like a boisterous flock. Färg & Blanche challenges once more existing furniture typologies by fusing mimetic qualities with practical functionality. Lulu is also a welcome reminiscence of ancient times when furniture was infused with a life of their own: pottery, tables and couches decorated with lion paws, the beak of an eagle, plant extravaganza. An animistic spiritualism that cherishes the connection with nature indoors Lulu is a new cousin to a whole family of objects, which has been presented by Färg & Blanche since 2010.
Their Succession collection has offered mimetic stools, cabinets, and mirrors in various sizes all dressed in black leather as well as colorful textiles. While the ingenuous process behind Succession resulted in a patterned sophisticated and refined expression without any seams, Lulu is a softer incarnation built on a wooden frame covered with lush foam for ultimate comfort. A furniture piece to hug as pluch toys, and that will allow you to sit on it as well. Lulu allows for a new way of sitting down: low by the floor and not so strict as with traditional furniture.

<p>Stockholm based design studio Färg & Blanche was founded in 2010 by the Swedish designer Fredrik Färg and designer Emma Marga Blanche, born in France. Known for their experimental stance, where each expression informs the other, they effortlessly move between the exclusive hand made one off and the industrially produced, without ever losing their distinctive touch.</p>
