With a touch of humor, the designers named this mirror collection Amore hoping that the viewer always like what he sees in the reflection. But this suite of 3 sizes has a notable distinction as well—being recently commissioned as a new furnishing for Copenhagen's SAS Royal Hotel, Arne Jacobsen's midcentury masterpiece. Trained as architects at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, Space Copenhagen design partners Signe Bindslev Henriksen and Peter Bundgaard Rützou were inspired by the horizontal band of windows on the facade. "We wanted to echo that aspect inside the rooms as well," Peter explains.

Design is never static. When Copenhagen-based &Tradition was established in 2010, founder Martin Kornbek Hansen's mission was to produce work that was defined by a unique vision, whether it came from Danish legends of the past or young innovators of the future. The roster extends from timeless luminaries such as Verner Panton and Arne Jacobsen to current leading lights Samuel Wilkinson and Norm.Architects to exciting new names Mia Hamborg and Victor Vetterlein. As the company's Kornbek Hansen puts it: "We see a kinship between the old masters, who were avant-garde in their time, and new designers creating the ground-breaking icons of today."
With its library of furniture and lighting extending from the 1930s to the present day, the firm is uniquely positioned to carry on the Nordic tradition of unstinting craftsmanship and adroit use of materials. Nonetheless, &Tradition sees its future in global terms, handpicking design talent and production facilities internationally in an effort to continually produce relevant product and engage a new generation of conscious consumers.
