Singapore – Up till 2008, Mr. Just Nuyens was director of product development at his family owned furniture manufacturing business located at Oirschot, Netherlands whose roots in furniture manufacturing can be traced as far back as 1917.
Now, Mr. Nuyens focuses his energy on working with internationally renowned designers such as Mario Mazzer and Gal Tevet on developing EntuneLiving a brand of competitively priced high-end furniture for the European market and the rest of the world.
On 3rd July Momentum Creations Pte Ltd better known as OM launched the EntuneLiving range at its showroom at 16 Tai Seng Street. Featured in this year’s launch are the Tiffany collection by Mario Mazzer and the Leaf Collection by Gal Tevet.
Bold and sophisticated the Tiffany collection is characterized by the unique shape of its legs and the transition from the vertical to the horizontal plane. The surface of each piece in this collection appears to float a little above its supports. Finished in a stained walnut with hints of blue lacquer this collection is elegant and yet slightly playful.
The Leaf Collection is a range of furniture that is made up exclusively of perpendicular panels in different combinations. Each panel has a rounded profile resulting in exceptionally thin edges. This creates an optical illusion; each piece in the collection looks light and airy but is deceptively strong and functional. Finished in natural walnut this collection brings warmth to living spaces without being overbearing.
It might have been 97 years since Mr. Nuyens family started in the furniture business but their passion continues unabated and the EntuneLiving brand is living proof.
