New collaboration that tells the story of an unexpected, moving philosophy of life in the open air, where design is inspired by nature and creativity becomes pure evasion
The magic world of the KENNETHCOBONPUE
In Auenstraße, near the Isar river, the KENNETHCOBONPUE showroom sits behind large glass windows that reflect the historical façades of the fashionable neighborhood it is located in.
This is a perfect choice not only for its proximity to the German market but also for the warm atmosphere of Munich and its welcoming citizens. That feeling may best represent the spirit of the brand founded more than twenty years ago by Kenneth Cobonpue, who set out to convey the value of Philippine artisanship by combining it with fresh design and research.
The KENNETHCOBONPUE space is characterized by simplicity; colored walls are the backgrounds for furniture, lighting and accessories composed in appealing sets. The large windows overlooking the street are the dividing element between the chaos of the street and plunge viewers into the peaceful atmosphere inside the shop.
Sofas and armchairs, tables and chairs, bookcases and even lamps and accessories draw inspiration from the wonderful nature of the island of Cebu, where the brand is based.
In the showroom itself some products stand out, such as the Dragnet lounge chair, the Kai Arc lamp, the La Luna and Yoda armchairs, the Matilda collection and the Wave dining table with the Parchment armchairs.
