Hybrid vintage: design process and skill

Respecting sculptural form as much as practical function, Self.’s Re-born hand-finished vintage furniture collection takes original repeatable mid century pieces (revealing a penchant for all things 50s, 60s & 70s) and gives them new design brio using a pop art inspired palette of sumptuous grand piano lacquers and luxurious modern fabrics. Kevin Self explains: “Hybrid furniture best describes the design process that takes place in our studio: combining vintage pieces with new functions,  finishes and textures that fuse seamlessly across the eras. The result is something new, exciting and ethically sound.”

Lacquer

Kevin Self’s engineering background and experience of experimentation with different materials informs his furniture design practice. He compares the highly skilled lacquering and restoration process involved to the restoration of a classic car: “You have to strip it back to the constituent parts and prepare them individually back to their original finish, then the lacquer is meticulously built up, layer upon layer to fully envelope the piece. The end result gives a luxurious depth of shine and colour.”

Fabric

Self.’s chairs are sympathetically restored so that the fabrics selected complement the original features of each chair, while retaining the natural aged patina through the restoration process. Re-born cocktail chairs are the big chair for small spaces, designed to make a statement in any room.

Colour

As colour is king, the Self. palette takes its cue from the pop art era and Kevin Self’s own memory of particular colours and related sensations that made an indelible mark – from engineering icons such as the Royal Mail pillar box – to a treasured pair of green Gola trainers!
