Heirlooms of the Future

UK-based architect Alexander Purcell Rodrigues is known for creating stylish spaces in residences and hotels around the world.

The ever-talented Purcell Rodrigues has expanded his reach to now include furniture design, collaborating on products with Holly Hunt, Promemoria, and De Castelli, to name a few. This year, he launched Atelier Purcell, which features bespoke creations that experiment with innovative technologies in order to create heirlooms of the future. We love the Phalanx sofa and tray, which beautifully pairs materials, including solid brass, eucalyptus, stainless steel, oak, bronze, and marble, to create pieces that are both modern and dimensional.
