Honestly speaking, I am not that type of person who is very particular about home interiors. As long as the furniture is functional and our house is clutter-free, okay na yun for me, haha. I really admire good home interiors even if I cannot apply it on my own life.
Last Thursday, June 16, 2016, I was invited to the launch of the latest furniture designs of Kubular at the Avida Showroom in Glorietta 4.
Avida Land and Kubular unveil "Art in Space", a two-week exhibit featuring the aesthetics of creative interiors. This is the first collaboration between Avida (proponent of sensible and inspired living), and Kubular (the furniture design firm from the brains behind graphic design-based apparel brand Team Manila).
"Art in Space" features never-before-seen pieces from Kubular's newest collection. Four set-ups were revealed at the opening event: the living room, the entertainment center, the DJ booth, and the display area.
Kubular's furniture designs carry an industrial, Scandinavian feel--straightforward elements like wood and steel bent into cubes and grids to make furniture that are aesthetically and functionally-designed. Their credo is to create design that is contemporary, flexible, and sustainable, with each piece having the ability to add character to a space.
Called "LightStyle Collection", Kubular's second collection features cream-colored Birch wood as primary material as light-colored wood elements are essential to complement our busy surroundings. The collection focuses on five pieces:
- Stephen -- an archival crate-inspired wood and metal plant stand that can work for indoors or outdoors, anywhere you want to give a cozy and inviting feel
- Alex -- a bigger version of the Stephen that allows for a stylish and compact way to store any collection
- Max -- a multi-purpose storage for the home entertainment system; a combination of Birch, dark metal, and bright orange casters marries sleek style and function
- Victor -- a minimalist, modern coffee table featuring a smooth rectangular silhouette with the collection's signature black industrial metal handle and bright orange casters
- Theo -- a wider version of the Stephen fits twice more; it's a craftly made piece that can be used to display plants, or sleekly hold books and records
Please note that each piece is mounted on casters for flexibility and easy movability.
On the other hand, Avida aims to give a taste of the unique lifestyle in San Antonio, Makati City with this collaboration. The residential Makati village features a wealth of hidden gems and rare finds in the form of quaint shops, galleries such as Suez and Zapote where Kubular's pieces are showcased, and interesting cuisine--all seamlessly integrated into the village's creative residential community. This village is also the home of Avida Towers Asten and their newest Makati development, One Antonio.
Avida Land Marketing Head Tess Tatco said, "Avida and Kubular share the dynamic working millenial demographic--the young, hardworking, creative, and culturally-inclined who deserve access to artistically curated and thoughtfully designed living. We want to provide what is essential to their lifestyle--pieces that are of good quality, functional, modern, and sustainable."
Mon Punzalan of Kubular also said that the furnitures that they design are more accessible than aspirational. "Innovation, doesn't have to be just aspirational. That's what Kubular and Avida stand for," he added.
"Art in Space" also showcases new releases from Team Manila and Suez and Zapote, an independent space that features diverse applications of art and design through its main medium, silkscreen printing. The exhibit will run until June 30th, 2016. Items on display are also available for sale. For more information visit avidaland.com.
The latest furniture collection of Kubular is indeed designed for people who are looking for functionality more than aesthetics. This is ideal for millenials and minimalists.
