Editor's Pick

This weekend in Paris, Swedish creative collective ACNE debuted its new furniture line. According to ACNE creative leader Jonny Johansson, the skewed, oddly angled pieces take inspiration from Carl Malmsten's Nya Berlin or "New Berlin" sofa, which was designed for the Swedish consulate in Berlin but ceased production in 1949. ACNE took the classic and approached it as it does its and fashion, playing with proportion, structure and shape to create a new form; not to mention holding fast to another part of ACNE heritage—the couches are covered in denim.
