Rottet Collection Launches New Home Furnishings Line at ICFF
Hall of Fame architect and interior designer Lauren Rottet, FAIA, FIIDA, will debut a new line of furnishings from Rottet Collection at the Javits Center during this year’s edition of ICFF.
“The additions to the Rottet Collection include pieces that we needed and couldn’t find in the marketplace,” the designer says about the inspiration behind the creation of new products that emphasize function, durability and versatility. Visual movement is a key ingredient to each piece. Similar to kinetic sculptures, they fill a space with energy, reflection and graceful form, becoming the focal point of any environment. The founder and makers at Rottet Collection are passionate about resilience, rejecting the notion of a “throw- away” product. Produced by the finest craftspeople from around the world, employing precious materials, energy and time, each Rottet Collection product is designed to be passed down to future generations.
Launched to the commercial market in 2017, Rottet Collection received rave reviews and overwhelming success. Fast-forward to 2022, Rottet has now completed 40+ luxury hotel projects and the world’s most exclusive residential properties—Central Park Tower and 200 E 83rd, breaking NYC sales records—all which inspired her to focus on designs for the home. “Everybody wants to experience an indoor/outdoor lifestyle, so we created adaptable products, including planters and fire pits, to be utilized in both environments,” Rottet says. Rottet will also debut new designs for Austin-based rug maker Kyle Bunting.
The ICFF launch also expands on the “Powerful Collection” of tables to include a variety of new finishes and materials for these pieces that optimize connection. Each unique item—arranged solo or in a grouping—incorporates innovative manufacturing, as well as Rottet’s passion for specifying a range of materials. The line combines Rottet’s affinity for architecture and detail, reflecting a penchant for spaces and objects that convey a physical energy, while visually activating a multitude of environments. Statement designs include the Marble Kilter Table, Stone Walking Bench, Wood Walking Table, Float Table and Bench, Aurora Table, as well Rattan Chair and Settee and mirrors along with planters, accessories, and a fire pit and fountain made from basalt adaptable for indoors or out.
