Softicated launches in the UK
The brand, founded by French-Swiss designer Cyril Rumpler offers modern, functional furniture made by artisans in Portugal, Italy and throughout Europe.
The Belvedere daybed and bench are designed to be adapted for seating, meditation or sleep.
The customisable collection, made up of hard furniture, seating, lighting and rugs draws inspiration from nature with its sinuous, simple, harmonious curves. Highlights from the collection include the Dinner Box sideboard based on a bento box storage concept in walnut or oak crafted in Portugal.
The Gustav console and side table blend walnut tops with meshed sides and legs in brass or steel which are welded by hand by European artisans, and The Drum Collection (pictured) of oval stools are available in matt or gloss finishes which bring colour, form and function for a multitude of interior functions.
