For this year’s Milan Design Week, Sunbrella once again collaborated with designer and artist Marc Ange to present Le Roi, a monumental installation featuring exclusive designs located in the garden space of Wallpaper* Handmade.
Ange unveiled Le Roi along with the never before seen Refuge lamps. Similar to the eccentric design of his Les Araignées armchairs, these two new designs are covered beautifully with Sunbrella fabric.
‘‘In the center of the garden, gold leaf lamps guide you to an elevated room, like an altar, whose walls, floors and ceilings are covered with the same deep blue Sunbrella fabric. At the back of the room, opposite you, sits, as if on a throne, like a king, a giant teddy bear with blue fabric skin, his head cramped by the ceiling which is too low for him.
The bear is illuminated by two Refuge Lamps, which are also covered with the same blue fabric, and protected by a small army of Les Araignées chairs, still in the same material,” said Ange.
This beautiful encounter between Sunbrella and Ange has resulted in a most unique collection of pieces, colored with fantasy and imagination.
