Named in homage to iconic director Wes Anderson, the Wes Lounge recalls the director’s striking visual style and represents an exploration into traditional upholstery and minimalist design.
10 May, 2016
Merging traditional upholstery techniques and minimalist design, the Wes Lounge took designer Tom Fereday over a year to develop. Distributed by Zenith and shown recently in Milan, the range is sculpted and manipulated by hand over a uniquely designed, timber frame. Channelling the whimsical and memorable colour scheme of films such as The Grand Budapest Hotel and The Royal Tenenbaums, the Wes Lounge conveys a complex yet minimal form with its entirely seamless fabric design and contrasting piping celebrating the soft form of the lounge as a concept.
Honest design from the inside out, the Wes range is entirely representative of Tom Fereday’s design philosophy. By using materials and environment as a design constraint, Fereday is able to employ intelligent and thoughtful design goals to meld form and function.
The Wes Lounge is constructed entirely from Eco plywood and finished with solid Ash legs and natural fabrics, and is available through Zenith.
