Jan 16, 2020
Designer Kenzo Takada will launch a new luxury home and lifestyle brand K三 (pronounced K3) at the Maison & Objet trade show in Paris, France, which begins on January 17.
Takada’s new brand offers chairs, sofas, tables, rugs, bed linens, home textiles, and accessories. In addition to incorporating technology from traditional Italian brands, K三 has collaborated with luxury bed linen company Sferra and incorporated the traditional technique of Kintsugi into certain products to as an homage to Japanese craftsmanship. The designer blends Japanese and Western aesthetics and interprets them through his own lens.
The brand’s maiden collection is based on and inspired by nature and Sakura (Japanese cherry blossom) as well as the Maiko (apprentice Geisha) with her delicate and refined heart, the brand said. The collection’s final inspiration is the three main concepts of the powerful, monochrome expression of majesty, the Shogun (military ruler) expressed through brilliantly coloured, exclusive prints.
Takada launched the brand and holds the role of artistic director along with his long-term managing partner Jonathan Bouchet Manheim, who has worked with him since 2013. The brand’s other team members include Engelbert Honorat and Wanda Jelmini along with other interior designers and craftspeople.
