The SP01 collection continues to grow rapidly. Following its launch collection from Metrica (released in 2017), an outdoor collection from Tom Fereday, and a frame-themed collection from Tim Rundle, the brand presents new items for its Metrica collection.

These ten new pieces offer a touch of the luxurious for contemporary life… a designer indulgence in any living space.

When developing the new additions to the collection, Metrica sought to reference the design of some of the popular original pieces, adding a layer of depth and complexity.

Unified in aesthetic though luxurious satin metallic finishes such as pewter, brass and satin black steel, the collection is ideally paired with marble and stained or lacquered ash. The sense sense of depth and complexity this range can add to a space is unparalleled.

The new pieces include:

  • Holland Desk, Bench and Console
  • Anita High Back Armchair Swivel Base
  • Anita High & Low Back Armchair with Rod Base
  • Thomas Armchair & Thomas Barstool
  • Max Modular Sofa + new corner cushions

The expanded Holland collection draws inspiration from the original Holland table, with the introduction of a desk, bench seat and console. SP01 and Metrica have referenced the stance of the 2017 table by using the same angles in the design of the new collection’s legs. This is then finished with a striking material palette made up of Marquina and Carrara marble.

In the new iterations of the Anita and Thomas seating take the form of new and improved adaptations of the originals. Anita is now also available in a high-back version, and with a new, simple rod base that follows the contours of the chair and is reminiscent of a decorative ’50s style.

Finally, the Max sofa from the original collection is now available in a corner version, with new cushion options that wrap the inside of the sofa to create a sense of enveloping comfort.

“We tried to progress and improve while retaining the spirit of the original collection that has an international DNA,” says Robin Rizzini, Chief Designer at Metrica. “SP01 is a novelty in the ever-challenging world of design furniture. There are new brands every year and all of them are willing to make a statement to be remembered. The strength of SP01 is its specific positioning as a brand with an international collection but a very ‘local’ sensibility for quality, taste and craftsmanship.”

 

SP01 is available from Space Furniture.
