Encouraged by the warm reception for their launch of the reimagined pinball Arcade Resurrection line at last year’s 100%Design in London, the uncompromising, high-craftsmanship furniture workshop ALTAR FURNITURE is making a triumphant return to town. This time both to play a larger role within the London Design Festival with a Pop-Up Shop and Lounge, and to share their newest lines at the premium brand 100%Design Show.
Embracing this year’s London Design Festival identity, “Design Is In The Detail”, owner András Lacfi conjures up a playful space presenting a welcoming, closer experience with the ALTAR POP-UP SHOP & LOUNGE in support of their newest furniture line launches, from coming face-to-face with the embodiment of an influential rocker in the FANatic line, to rewinding time with the customisable Great Tape tables, or enjoying a coffee while resting on amplifier-inspired Amper collection poufs.
The limited event will take place in the Shoreditch Design Triangle from 17-25 September at 135 Bethnal Green Road, London E2 7DG. Selected by the Icon Design Trail – an independent guide of the London Design Festival – as a must-see event, the ALTAR Lounge’s mixture of shop, lounge and event space will provide the perfect opportunity for guests to actually move amongst – and interact with – the items that have, until now, only been accessible at trade shows, online, or in customers’ homes.
On the other front, at 100%Design, ALTAR are continuing their unique sensibility that marries precision, craftsmanship and timeless cool. They have drawn inspiration from musical icons for the products showcased in this year’s show. Their items getting showcased at their 100%Design stand all play off of the musical memories we all have – whether we were creating it, exultantly celebrating it, or enjoying it and sharing it with our friends. And, tying into the theme of this year’s 100%design – Experience – these products allow the immersion in oversized reimagining of cassette tapes and amplifiers.
Both the #AltarLounge and their 100%Design space will be true to the brand’s open-minded and lively nature, bring like-minded people together in a fun, interactive way, imperceptibly capturing the hearts of every individual who is open to the bold and edgy design ALTAR FURNITURE represents.
