Habitus Loves… Elegance

Habitus Loves… Elegance

A soft glow, smooth line or decadent finish, we love elegance. Here, we share with you a few new favourites.


1 | Suzusan Lighting by Hiroyuki Murase



Suzusan is a wonderful example of artisan meets modern technology. Hiroyuki Murase’s parents’ company in Japan are Shibori masters so he is steeped in the traditions of hand knotting and tying superb textiles and the vagaries of vegetable dyes.

The Suzusan lights utilise these traditions and applies it to polyester fabric, which is then heated to permanently set the tie dye pleats into place. The result… a beautiful textured fabric lamp that gently glows within a room.

2 | The Hug Collection by Claesson Koivisto Rune for Arflex



Part of the Hug Collection (speaking directly to the heart – the hug) is a small side chair (above) for dining or meeting, as well as dining and meeting tables and coffee tables and a high-back club chair with a more private repose than the armchair.

All pieces are designed to give great flexibility to the customer as well as being beautiful to look at, the friendly and welcoming gesture, seen most clearly in the ‘open- armed’ position of the armrests, is meant as a universal invitation: “Come, sit with me a while and I’ll put you at ease”.
