ipse ipsa ipsum. What a great name! And I think the stars of the 100% Design this year. It feels like 100% Design is growing up fast and starting to offer an interesting international experience to the London Design Fair. With design brands from all over the globe, it it truly an international experience.
The Singaporean based brand, ipse ipsa ipsum, had a large stand at 100% Design and their collaboration with Nathan Young made their offering stand out.
Designed in collaboration with renowned local designer Nathan Yong, the eponymous collection is the first of ipse ipsa ipsum’s line of co-authored collections. The collection features a wide range of furniture and lifestyle accessories that combines the authenticity of natural materials with an element of surprise that will delight the customer.
The sofa with it’s adjustable components which ranged from side tables to vases to lamps is a real stunner of a piece. The cowhide seat and woven leather back make it very comfortable to sit on. there are numerous customisation options too. Best of all, it’s a serious statement piece and very very affordable at around the £2000 range. Which is extremely good value for such a piece!
The marble table, standing mirror and make up desk, aka dressing table, were other stand out pieces from ipse ipsa ipsum.
This collection debuted at IFFS earlier this year in March and has gathered extensive press over the months. I’m certainly going to keep an eye on this brand.
