About

Space oddity sofa designed by Thomas Dariel, Maison Dada Sofa: L240 x D100 x H95 cm Structure in solid timber and plywood • Memory foam Base and seating fully upholstered in fabric Recommended fabric • Febrik Uniform Melange Collection from Kvadrat Other fabric selection and COM option available Major Tom’s Seatings collection, designed by Thomas Dariel, includes Armchair, sofa and Ottoman and hails its name from the fictional character referenced in David Bowie’s song « Space Oddity » that depicts an astronaut which casually slips the bonds of the world to journey beyond the stars. The song’s promotional video shows Bowie as Major Tom in a space-inspired outfit designed by Pierre Cardin. With their lunar shapes and curved silhouettes, one can easily imagine the Major Tom seatings displayed inside the famed couturier’s eponymous house, « The Palais Bulles », joyous bubbling landmark of architecture for alternate life. Bowie and Cardin, two trailblazing artists who shared a lifelong fascination with the moon, two men who were disruptors in their field and whose creations are still contemporary because immune to trends. 50 years after moon landing, we are still looking at the stars. Thomas Dariel Thomas Dariel is the Founder and leading designer behind the Shanghai-based interior design agency Dariel Studio. As great grandson of a French furniture designer, grandson of a jazz musician and son of an architect, he has always drawn his strength and inspiration from his family heritage.

In 2017, Thomas Dariel has been elected The Young Design Talent of the Year by EDIDA China Awards, Design Talent of the Year by Trends and The Person of the Year by Trends Home magazines. Dariel draws his creativity from the different worlds of design, fashion, gastronomy, visual arts and luxury. His design philosophy is driven by his passion for breaking traditional codes and clichés which creates a new language for each design. By confronting heritage and cutting-edge innovations, combining French design heritage with Eastern cultural influence, Thomas Dariel’s open approach unfolds original perspectives. Thomas Dariel is recognized for his very personal creative style and his habit to push boundaries, to provoke and surprise. A singular signature that he has extended with success to product design, signing with – among others – Cappellini and Moroso. In 2016 and while pursuing his interior design activity, Dariel decided to revive a childhood’s dream by launching his own brand of furniture, lighting, rugs and accessories, Maison Dada.

About the Maker

Galerie Philia

Galerie Philia is an international contemporary sculptural design and art gallery representing emerging and established designers and artists. The gallery is the brainchild of two brothers who share a lifetime passion for art, literature and philosophy. Their distinct academic background sets them apart from their peers, as it sees them following a rhizomatic and transcultural approach in the way they select works. This involves combining elements from multiple cultures in what becomes a network of harmoniously interconnected roots, ultimately revealing the beauty of each unique creation. The gallery’s non-hierarchical curation sits apart from the ephemerality of trends and focuses instead on the true aesthetic quality of the piece – alluring and timeless. Unlike others, Galerie Philia does not focus on a single style – whether minimalist, organic or raw – but rather embraces heterogeneity. The Galerie Philia takes pride in discovering new talents, providing them with multiple international platforms to showcase their latest creations. As well as propelling the newest generation of 21st century collectible design, Galerie Philia also works with internationally known design artists. Galerie Philia has a strong international presence, with galleries in Geneva, New York and Singapore. In addition to their permanent spaces, the gallery organizes temporary group exhibitions and artists residencies in first-class locations around the world.
