The new collection is a synergy between the Art Deco movement and the cultivated Zen gardens in Kyoto.
Jazz up your home with André Fu Living’s “Art Deco Garden” collection, which combines the serenity of Kyoto Zen gardens with deconstructed art deco patterns, all executed with a contemporary spirit.
Exclusively available at Lane Crawford Pacific Place home store and online, the collection sees Fu collaborating with British wallcovering studio de Gournay to create surprising cabinetry and panels, and with Lora Piana on Japanese landscape-inspired fabrics, upholstered in armchairs and dining chairs.
Fu has conducted in-depth researches of the historical Japanese Zen gardens beforehand. These romantic gardens, in particular the Tofukuji Temple Garden, demonstrate a visual composition that utilises nature as a raw material, resulting in a fascinating series of lyrical spaces. The designer finds the Zen garden’s masterful use of pebbles highly appealing: their fluid and continuous lines evoke the sense of visual movement, yet the feeling of inner serenity is mesmerising.
