The lounge chair features angular lines complemented with a masculine finish, making it the perfect standalone feature for a meeting room or breakout space. The workplace should be a dynamic environment, designed to foster creativity and encourage the birth of new ideas.

Project • By Arper SPAPrivate Houses

Villa Wienberg

The intimate Danish summer house, designed by Mette and Martin Wienberg, is a rigorous play of light, material and volume. The design is simple and abstract; the hard lines of concrete and steel are tempered by the warmth of wood, and softened by leather and fur, white curtains, large windows, and soft lighting.

It is unpretentious and simple, in harmony with tradition. “If you have quiet rooms, the views of the garden look almost like paintings,” Mette says.
