Since its inception in Hong Kong in 2013, Seventhirty am has introduced a number of new-to-scene brands and design studios to Asia. The furniture retailer offers a well-curated selection of brands from Europe, Australia and New Zealand, playing an important role in supplying retailers, interior designers, architects and developers with a unique selection of furniture, lighting and decorative items.
During Hong Kong Indesign, Seventhirty am will unveil the new brand in its repertoire, Petite Friture, with the Constance Guisse-designed Vertigo suspended light taking centre stage. This “lamp hut” is made from lightweight fibreglass and velvety ribbons of polyurethane, making a bold and graphical statement that comes to life as it sways with indoor draughts. The lightness of the lamp (it weighs less than 500g per 2-square metre amplitude) allows it to gently rotate with the rhythm of the air, projecting an ephemeral yet graphical design in the space between the floor and the ceiling
Seventhirty am’s exhibition space at the Curated Space will also showcase a beautiful installation of DING pendant lights. This exclusive display is a collaboration between Seventhirty am and Hong Kong-based design studio Latitude22N.
With a wide portfolio of international brands under its wings, Seventhirty am will also be showcasing a number of other brands. Look out for French furniture manufacturer Alki, and its collection of clean and undeterred furniture. Founded in 1981 in the Basque Country in France, Alki strives to design furniture that embodies the harmony between design and lifestyle.
Also making an appearance is Casalis, with its range of handmade indoor and outdoor poufs and rugs. Discover the sublime touch and natural elegance of the Casalis collections, and explore the inexhaustible range of shapes, sizes and colours.
Seventhirty am will be exhibiting at The Space, 210 Hollywood Road, Sheung Wan during Hong Kong Indesign.

The 60,000-sq-m space unfolds over eight floors and aims to encourage social interaction rather than a place to simply come and work in isolation. But outside of the obvious “collaboration stations” how are we designing spaces that actually make us want to get together?
