LEMON PRESENTS HOPE; SOUTH AFRICAN CRAFTSMANSHIP INSPIRED BY ITALIAN DESIGN CLASSICS
Lemon recently unveiled its newest design: Hope. Intended as the ultimate all-in-one seating solution
and to be applied broadly, such as in residential, retail, hospitality and office environments.
Although the design is based on Italian design classics, Hope is indeed South African.
Named after the hometown of founder and designer Kevin Frankental, Hope is a nod to
Lemon’s ongoing commitment and dedication to putting South Africa’s local craftsmen
and their ancient craftsmanship on the global map. And wouldn’t the name Hope also be a nod
to these times and the current, troubling state of the world? Either way: we welcome Hope!
EYE FOR DETAIL
The seeming simplicity of this collection hides a meticulous design process with an eye for detail. “It concerns subtle details that you only notice if you look very closely. For example, the armrests protrude slightly at the back, giving it a very interesting silhouette from different angles. And notice the piping detail in the pillow, which reminds you of the late ’60s,” says Frankental.
The collection owes its detailing to the Italian styling of that time, which inspired designer Yaniv Chen of Master Studio.
CONVENIENCE AND COMFORT
Like all Lemon products, Hope is not only pleasing to the eye, but also functions well. Frankental: “The depth of the sofa is comfortable enough for lounging, but you can also have a relaxed meeting in it. Anyone sitting in the Hope is always amazed at how comfortable it is. You never want to get up again.” And as an extension of comfort and convenience, Hope is available in multiple sizes and fabrics.
The beauty of Hope lies in its versatility. All seating elements work harmoniously together and also match well with other Lemon interior pieces, such as the Vondel coffee table, the Promenade sideboard and the Chelmsford coffee table.
