A testament to modern art and design, the design brand ferm LIVING invites you to explore a new collaboration between the Danish Louisiana Museum of Modern Art and ferm LIVING. The result is an intriguing, woven fabric with bold black and sand stripes on the Rico Lounge Chair and Rico 2-Seater from ferm LIVING.
Entering the collaboration, it was key that the design would echo the understated elegance that is the very essence of the iconic modern art museum. Shop Manager at Louisiana, Peter Myrthu Elmegaard says: “the beautiful new fabric for the Rico Lounge Chair and 2-Seater is the result of a great collaboration between us and ferm LIVING. For the first time, we have been deeply involved in the development of a design that has a clear starting point in Louisiana’s architecture”.
A significant trademark for Louisiana is their use of tall, whitewashed walls, exposed structures, wooden ceilings, and deep-red tiled floors. It was their significant play with these contrasts in colours and materials that inspired the characteristic Louisiana x ferm LIVING fabric.
For Trine Andersen, ferm LIVING’s founder & Creative Director, the decision to start a collaboration with Louisiana felt natural. “When I visit Louisiana, it doesn’t feel like I’m at a museum. It’s more like a home – as if I’m visiting someone who collects art and is inspired by boundaries between art, architecture and design. The overall aesthetic and sensory experience that Louisiana’s intimate atmosphere provides resonates with me”, she explains and continues: “ There is also a lot of significance in being “out of town” – in quiet surroundings where you find this gorgeous “sanctuary” with an amazing garden and an incredible view. I love going there for the art exhibitions, but for me, the total experience represents so much more than that. It exudes serenity and a set of values in which I feel comfortable. We are incredibly proud of this collaboration; Louisiana is an institution for both art and design, and in my view, it is Denmark’s best art museum.”
