Interior designer Melani Sabhaney, founder of Dubai-based design studio Interspace, is set to launch her debut furniture collection at this year's Downtown Design, focusing on customisable design and personalisation.
Eden is a three-piece furniture set locally manufactured in the UAE including a bar credenza, lounge sofa and a nest of coffee tables - all made from natural materials, combined with painted glass and resin art inspired by the lines found in nature.
This bespoke collection is entirely produced at Interspace's manufacturing facility, Mfit in Ajman, allowing them to fully control all aspects of the design, from concept to development to final production stage, as well as supporting locally sourced materials and craftsmanship.
"The beauty of Eden collection lies in its flexibility and the fact that is produced for designers by designers," said Sabhaney.
"When working with our clients, especially on residential and hospitality projects, we see there is a constant need for furniture which can fit a particular space and a certain style. Invariably, such pieces are not available at the time and cost that we need. Eden collection is an extension of that need as we wanted to create a collection that is very design-specific but also cost-efficient and with shorter delivery times."
The nest of coffee tables in the collection offers an unusual combination of shapes where each piece can additionally be used as an end table. Showcasing nature's organic forms, the fluid-shaped metal base in a bronze finish blends into its abstract-shaped glass top, enforced with resin art. The coffee table offers a number of material combinations including glass, wood, marble or stone tops and different metal base finishes.
The two-seater sofa features a smooth intersecting curved back and a soft flouted shape, complete with metal legs in a bronze finish. The sofa comes in high-quality pastel upholstery in two complimentary shades.
Eden bar credenza serves as an accent piece in one's living room while its interiors can be customized to suit a variety of purposes. The bar unit comes with multiple accessories for practical usage while its high-gloss painted exterior features art-printed glass shutters, enriched with bronze handles and trims. Its interior is simple and celebrates the beautiful nature of rich walnut wood.
The Eden collection will make its official debut at Downtown Design on November 12, 2019.
