Iconic Furniture by LLI Design 

Studio-LLIIconic Furniture was conceived out of an in house side project at LLI Design. Starting initially as a bunch of mid century furniture sketches we were looking at ways to “frame” and present the sketches and get them off paper into a more permanent form.
To progress the initial sketches they were scanned and outlined in Adobe Illustrator, several graphic styles were explored, but we eventually settled on the one used as we felt it struck a good balance between accuracy and playfulness with a nod towards mid century advertising illustration.

After deciding that the project would be published as an interactive website we explored multiple ways to display the illustrations and text; settling on a strong graphic style utilising Lato font in various weights. The bold muted background colour palette was again inspired by period Mid century advertising and posters to complement the furniture.

Finally the parallax effect (vertical scrolling moving panels) was employed to add intrigue as each new illustration is revealed.

Another Finn Juhl piece – awesome designer from Denmark who is making a big design noise in Europe. We love the black faux leather upholstery and perhaps also style reminiscent of the the 50s.
