When Sé began in 2007, our guiding principle was to create furniture design of allure, imagination and distinction, finished with fine materials and the highest quality production values.
Sé’s debut collection, created by the celebrated French designer Damien Langlois-Meurinne, captured the tone perfectly. Glamorous, lyrical, strong and sculptural – and with a tantalising echo of the furniture of the 1920s and 30s – it chimed perfectly with Sé’s aesthetic mandate.
Curvaceous, lithe and refined, Sé’s second collection of furniture has a celebratory air. Designed by Spanish designer Jaime Hayon, the new pieces display the sparkling Hayon spirit, as well as representing the maturity of Sé’s guiding principle: that from surface to structure, quality should be expressed throughout the entirety of furniture design.
Nika Zupanc’s acclaimed collection for Sé – our third commission from a major designer – resulted in an extraordinary portfolio with a distinct, cinematic atmosphere. Zupanc's intention was to “make a family of pieces loosely based around the idea of the Olympics and sports clubs” and the influences of ‘Golden Age’ Hollywood and Art Deco can also be discerned. The overall sense is of a visual language that is new yet uncannily familiar, and at one with Sé's values and vision.
Collection IV, created with designer Ini Archibong, continues and extends Sé's founding principles of producing furniture that is sumptuous and sculptural, restrained yet expressive, and made to last from the finest noble materials such as bronze and marble. The partnership also reflects Sé's passion for working with emerging designers who share its principles and aesthetic tendencies: the intention being to produce characterful heirloom pieces of exceptional finish.
