Nikolai Kotlarczyk had never worked with the SP01 team until the Royce. But two of the company’s representatives had come across the Royce’s original prototype presented at the Stockholm Furniture Fair in 2018 and it was then put in front of SP01’s creative director Matt Lorrain. And then, as they say, ‘the rest is history’, with Nikolai making regular trips to SP01’s Sydney headquarters.
The Royce sits perfectly not only in both commercial and residential interiors but is aligned with SP01’s design aesthetic. “We both share a love of design history, and we are both drawn to similar design movements, whether that be Italian expressionism or Scandinavian mid-century minimalism, but combining these with a fresh take on contemporary forms,” Nikolai says. “We also appreciate fluent and beautiful lines that, most importantly function really well,” he adds.
