Following the success of Squire & Partners’ collaboration with Lema on a bespoke table as part of a design installation for Surface Design Show in 2020, the British architects and Italian furniture designers have paired up to design an exclusive furniture range.

Taking inspiration from their first joint project, where Lema used a simple and elegant framework of L sections to create trays and legs, Squire & Partners studied and enjoyed the design language Lema employs in its existing furniture ranges, where end users can adapt coffee tables and shelving units by selecting from a range of finishes and accessories.

Taking this concept of adaptability and versatility, Lina Console – the first furniture piece to launch in the collection, at Salone del Mobile Milano 2023 – is a simple L section framework which can accommodate a range of inserts, from drawers to leather or stone tops and other accessories.

Squire & Partners identified consoles in entrance spaces as an opportunity and starting point to create a customisable piece which can be adapted depending on different needs and styles.

The Lina Console is the first in a family of objects, starting with the console as a base element, with additional elements that will be designed in different materials to combine with the piece, building on and transforming it.

Squire & Partners is the Exclusive Style Partner for MEET UP London, which takes place tonight in at Upstairs at The Department Store, Brixton.
