Designer Nick Ross

The Tearoom Collection offers indulgent retreats and mood-lifting comfort for a multitude of settings. The inspiration for the collection came from Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s Willow Chair, created between 1902 and 1904 for the Willow Tea Rooms in Glasgow. Beckoning us to bask in a bit of luxury, the high-backed Tearoom Sofa elevates relaxation with its sculptural, modern and tactile form. Made with public spaces in mind – a hotel lobby, workspace or lounge setting, as a standalone or placed back-to-back in multiples – the clean silhouette features a contoured back offers moments of quiet contemplation in busy spaces. Beneath the upholstery, a wood and foam construction creates the ideal pairing of sturdiness and lush comfort. The addition of a USB-C port and power socket at the base makes it a practical spot for work as well as play.

ABOUT THE DESIGNER

Nick Ross

Nick Ross (1986) is a Scottish-Swedish, Stockholm-based designer studied industrial design at Gray’s School of Art in Aberdeen, -and was awarded the Arts & Heritage prize for his graduation project, Stray, in 2008. Later on, he enrolling in fine arts Master’s program in interior architecture and furniture design at Konstfack in Stockholm, in 2013. Immediately after graduating, he began working as an assistant to Swedish designer Matti Klenell until establishing his own self-named, Stockholm-based studio in 2014. Ross is a designer with a penchant for scarce spaces that focus on the use of materials and light in a given expanse. His research centres on the complex repertoire of history, with a particular focus on ancient history, where he finds the factors with which to interpret the relationship between the user and contemporary design. Using storytelling as a pretext and applying a confidently critical approach, Nick is interested in investigating facts and happenings that have determined specific cultural balances. Every project comes from the desire to create ideal or real bridges between the present to that of the past. At first glance, Nick Ross appears to have a great eye for presentation. A closer look reveals a sensitivity to materials that makes bold moves appear delicate. He considers how historical interpretations alter our current perceptions of objects. The main interest lies in how guesswork or cultural ‘curation’ can create situations where we are influenced to think in certain ways and feel certain things.” According to the designer, “My work looks at the role of history and storytelling in how we perceive the world around us, by working with themes such as place, origin, and the role fiction plays in past and present societies.
