LOOK: Kenneth Cobonpue Unveils Stunning Collection of Star Wars-Inspired Furniture
Months ago at Hall D of AsiaPOP
Today, following a series of teasers on Facebook, Cobonopue finally unveils the full collection, comprised of five different pieces. Check it out:
CHEWIE ROCKING STOOL
The microfiber strips are colored brown and wrapped with a fabric belt to emulate Chewbacca and his bandolier. The playfulness of this rocking stool reflects the big heart of the legendary Wookiee warrior and loyal comrade of Han Solo.
IMPERIAL WINGS EASY ARMCHAIR
Imperial Wings is inspired by the unforgettable symbol of the Imperial fleet, the TIE fighter. Be your very own fighter ace in this easy armchair that features handwoven polyethylene, which captures the agility and strength of the iconic starfighter.
LITTLE JEDI HANGING LAMP
Little Jedi is a symbol of hope and a brighter tomorrow. The miniature figurines are Jedi Knights holding light sabers, which are the hanging lamp’s light source. The one red figurine symbolizes a Sith Lord that the Jedi’s are battling against, conveying the message unity.
SIDIOUS EASY ARMCHAIR
To embody Darth Sidious, this easy armchair’s backrest is raised higher to resemble a hood, and its legs’ edges are slightly curved forward. The silhouette is elegant, while simultaneously capturing the Sith Lord’s powerful and formidable presence.
VADER EASY ARMCHAIR
Featuring a foldable swivel table and an open weave canopy, this easy armchair mixes business and pleasure as an office and a personal nook in one. This easy armchair is your very own private space to have a cup of tea and plan your next scheme to conquer the Rebel Alliance.
These pieces were designed in official collaboration with Disney. At the AsiaPOP reveal, Cobonpue was keen to discuss the process, noting that he didn't set out to recreate what he saw in Star Wars. Instead, he wanted to take inspiration from the franchise. This meant taking familiar elements from the original trilogy and infusing them into his own design language.
This is evident in the pieces themselves, which still bear a very natural geometry about them—something you'd see in all of Cobonpue's designs.
There's no word yet on availability and pricing, but expect updates as we receive them.
