The Feminine Mystique of Konekt

Introducing signature pieces by American designer Helena Sultan.//Introduction des pièces sélectes par désigner américaine Helena Sultan.

During September's Paris Design Week 2017 events, SORS had the pleasure to introduce the European furniture design market to the KONEKT collection by American designer Helena Sultan. Three new versions of the designer's instant icon, Thing Stools, and her hand sculpted steel and brass Dionis Table were on display at the new Galerie SORS. showroom space in Paris, where they will remain available to view by appointment.

There is a subtle yet sudden recognition of a refined youthful play and softness of line that runs through the beautifully hand sculpted collection. In fact, we love this collection and the endless ways that the gentle opulence of the pieces celebrate hand molded curves and fine attention to craft detail; each piece incorporates an opposing design force, functioning as a visual accent to both modern and traditional design themes.

The juxtaposed styling created by the materials in pieces like the Thing Stools, composed of soft cotton velour, opulent polished brass rings and course horse hair weft, combine to create quality pieces of unique design that introduce a thought provoking and diverse aesthetic. 

Traditionally matched materials such as marble and polished brass also figure into the collection, as seen in the design of the Petra low table, with its oval shaped stone slab table top with rounded and elegantly tapered moulded brass legs.
