Product description Specification

Made to hang at eye level, the Gaea Pendant is like a thought bubble, casting imaginative serenity with its light. It arose after Archibong mused about making a floor lamp for the ceiling, and a lamp hanging as if a cocoon. The Gaea’s cord can be customised with ceramic beads in different finishes.

COLLECTION IV

Collection IV created with designer Ini Archibong, continues and extends Sé's founding principles of producing furniture that is sumptuous and sculptural, restrained yet expressive, and made to last from the finest noble materials such as bronze and marble. Equally this partnership reflects Sé's passion for working with emerging designers who share its principles and aesthetic tendencies: the intention being to produce characterful heirloom pieces of exceptional finish.

Entitled Below the Heavens: a reference to the threshold between earth and heaven; in historical lore, a place of serenity, beauty and celestial perfection and for Archibong a place he feels encompasses the spirit of Sé; a spirit of sensual beauty and sensitive fragility.

It was important that Sé and Archibong understood each other before embarking on the design process. “It’s been four years since Collection III but we wanted to wait for the right designer,” said Sé co-founder Pavlo Schtakleff. “To me, Sé occupies a special place in the spectrum of luxury furniture,” added Archibong. “This collaboration feels like a perfect fit and it’s an honour to be invited to create the fourth collection.”

Archibong not only shared with Sé a sensibility of understated luxury, but also a fascination with materials and production methods – two vital pillars of Sé’s methodology.

To inform Below the Heavens, Schtakleff and Archibong took to the road, visiting Sé’s hand-picked European manufacturers and researching the noble materials that are part of the company’s principles. Educated in luxury design and craftsmanship and with a truly global background, Los Angeles-raised Archibong found many things in common with Schtakleff and Sé. Their journeys are now feeding into the development of the collection, reigniting the essence of Sé and generating new materials and ideas that will help map the future of luxury furniture.

Archibong’s recent work has shown a great interest in both form and materials, using glass, marble and brass to express themes drawn from mythology and spirituality and Below the Heavens is the largest undertaking of his career so far. “My aim is to push Sé's fascination for exploring noble and new materials even further, and use them with simple silhouettes and decorative elements to create a memorable collection.”

An instinctive choice for Sé, Archibong’s work builds upon Sé’s three previous milestone collections with Damien Langlois-Meurinne, Jaime Hayon and Nika Zupanc respectively. “With Ini, we have found a designer who has an innate grasp of timeless luxury, a passion for investigating materials and production techniques,” says Schtakleff. “Together we will enrich Sé’s offering and make Collection IV an exciting and significant body of work in our 10th anniversary year.”

When Sé began in 2007, director and founder Pavlo Schtakleff had a goal – to reclaim the glamour and quality of 20th century furniture and to become a dynamic and innovative presence in the world of contemporary luxury design. Sé’s vision was to invite some of the world’s best design talent to produce collections, akin to an art gallery or a couture house, the ultimate object being to build a catalogue of highly-crafted and beautifully-finished objects, made of the finest, noble materials, by the best craftspeople in Europe. With timeless forms, a curvaceous aesthetic and a spirit of play, Sé pieces are now feted for their characterful, sculptural profiles, and their ability to captivate the senses.
