Sphere – Living Design
Opening Saturday 9th April
Sphere is delighted to invite you to the launch of their new designer furniture store on Saturday 9th April in Queens Avenue, between the bustle of Park Street and Whiteladies Road.
The event will provide the perfect opportunity for you to view a stunning range of furniture produced by some of the world’s leading designers and meet the team behind the new inspirational Sphere brand.
Embracing the strap-line ‘Living Design’, Sphere will appeal to all those with an interest in the golden age of furniture design, from the Bauhaus era which spanned the fifties and sixties right up to today’s cutting edge design influences.
In the words of Sphere’s Director, Matt Ellis:
“There has been a sharp increase in the popularity of genuine designer furniture over the last few years and Sphere will serve to be a retail hub for those interested in the products and culture personified by Charles & Ray Eames, Verner Panton, Arne Jacobsen, The Bouroullec Brothers, Alvar Aalto and many others across the furniture, product and accessory market.
Supported by renowned manufacturers such as Vitra, Fritz Hansen and Iittala, Sphere will represent the values and aspirations of these and many other furniture brands which have achieved iconic status the world over.
Bristol’s renaissance as both a commercial and retail destination was a central facet in our decision to launch our flagship Sphere store and we are looking forward to a long and happy relationship with the city”.
It has been virtually impossible not to have noticed the increasing influence of the aforementioned designers upon modern popular culture. From Mad Men to the pages of Elle Decoration, classic pieces such as the Eames lounge chair, Jacobsen’s Egg design and Nelson clock’s have achieved cult status among interior designers, celebrated architects and the so-called bright young things.
Sphere brings this world to life in the heart of Bristol and we look forward to the pleasure of your company on the 9th April.
