Metropolis, expressionism takes shape in high-end furniture

27 Apr 2018

 

Avant-garde aesthetics permeate the Metropolis collection, a line of high-end furniture inspired by the film of the same name that became the greatest exponent of German expressionism in the 1920s.

The futurist style based on art deco principles imagined by Fritz Lang takes shape in this collection, defined by walnut wood, leather and bronze decorations.

The iconic pieces of this collection of high-end furniture include its chairs, which bring together an avant-garde style and the elegance of art deco in their design, in the white ivory colour of their leather upholstery and in their gold-plated details. Their stately essence is transmitted elegantly to the rest of the room.

 

 

In this collection, chairs recover their historic status as a symbol of distinction. In ancient Egypt, the chair represented the power and nobility that distinguished the pharaoh from the people.

And just as art deco takes inspiration from the great masterpieces of antiquity, Soher transmits to these chairs the aura of exclusivity that they always enjoyed and which now imbues homes, meeting rooms and luxury hotels around the world such as the Westin Dubai Al Habtoor City.

Avant-garde design thus connects with traditional handcrafted techniques thanks to the master cabinet makers who handle the wood and work carefully on each one of the products of Metropolis.

 

 

The chairs of this line bear the stamp that guarantees the authenticity, exclusivity and craftsmanship of the furniture and haute décor elements of Soher. Characteristics that they share with the other pieces of furniture in the living or dining room, including sofas, armchairs, occasional tables, sideboards and display cabinets, which are complemented by vases, lamps and other elements of haute décor.

Metropolis also brings its sophisticated essence to the bedroom, visually characterised by the contrast between the light tones of the leather and the dark chromatism of the wood, and taking shape in beds, dressing tables and bedside tables. The sumptuously upholstered headboards and stools provide the necessary warmth and comfort to the room.
