The Grove x

Michael and Annette Dearth’s award winning Auckland restaurant, The Grove, has just received a make-over at the hands of renowned hospitality designer Paul Izzard. The overall aesthetic is intimate and warm and UFL Group was delighted to be chosen to contribute furniture to the new bar and lounge areas. Izzard chose Patricia Urquiola designed Nub lounge chair and Nub sofas from Andreu World complemented by luxe marble table with brass bases for the lounge. The seating for the bar area uses Enea Lottus stools with special custom leather piping and the result complements the warm, sophisticated, fine dining experience that is The Grove.

Inspiring Spaces

UFL represents furniture from the some of the world’s most prestigious manufacturers, so we’d like to showcase some of the inspirational installations from our friends in Europe which demonstrates the depth and versatility of product that we can also bring to our clients here.  In Barcelona, Baas Arquitectura used both Arper’s Saya and Juno collections and the strong, cleans lines to great effect in their interior.

In Pistal, Austria, architect Bauschlager-Eberle complemented the timber interior of Café 3340 with the warm timber finish of the Woody chair, while in Berlin the Nub collection is used to great effect at the Das Stue Hotel.

And finally, across the Atlantic in Washington, five of our best suppliers came together at the Jaleo restaurant, with Sancal Tea dining chairs, Enea Lottus barstools, LZF Agatha suspension lamps, Andreu World Nub chairs and the M114 Green chairs.

Nub Chair by Patricia Urquiola

Fresh from the halls of Milano was Patricia Urquiola’s most talked about Nub collection. Designed for Andreu World, this attractive line of sofas and chairs with natural wood structures offer multiple color combinations and options for both their frames and upholstery.
Patricia Urquiola describes Nub as “an emotive object, an element of my memory located in the context of my infancy, when I used to play with the bobbins that my grandmother used when she was making lace. These small wooden bars were playmates, which I have revised and redesigned in order to provide a base for the search for successive typologies. I always incorporate my domestic, private and past lives into my projects”.
Nub goes into production later this year and is one special piece we can’t wait to get our hands on it.
