A galaxy far, far away with furniture designer Kenneth Cabonpue
The annual Milan Design Week has evolved into much more than a humble furniture fair, showcasing the very best highlights from the world of design and the latest in ground-breaking projects.
One collection that stood out was from Creative Director Kenneth Cobonpue’s collaboration with Disney, coming up with some ingenious retro-futurism furniture pieces inspired by the recognisable characters and features in the original 1970s Star Wars films.
Known typically as a designer that applies his signature motifs to both rattan furniture and to more architectural pieces that resonates with a handmade feel, these clever iconic home décor offerings are more whimsical in affair which consist of three easy armchairs, a rocking stool and a hanging lamp.
Enigmatic or minimalist, rustic or industrial, a man’s bedroom or pad is the place where a lifestyle emerges. Choosing to surround yourself with fragments of your life gives your friends the opportunity to get to know you better and what enriching way for any stylish interior purveyor than to make a statement that any Star Wars enthusiast desiring to build a galactic empire at home would be content with.
Stand out examples include the armchair based on the TIE Fighter Wings of the Imperial Fleet and the supreme Darth Vader chair with a built in table to have a cup of coffee and plan your next scheme to conquer the Rebel Alliance.
