Irish designer Bryan O‘Sullivan has built a name for himself in the world of interiors, creating exclusive pieces for homes, hotels, restaurants, and bars around the globe. But now, O’Sullivan branches out, welcoming you into his creative space with his first collection that’s more widely available to the public.
The collection is comprised of furniture, lighting, and objects, as well as artist collaborations that come in limited-quantity editions alongside other items that are editions in their own right, and various other pieces that utilize materials that are innovative, fine, tactile, or all three.
Notable examples of this include the Boydell credenza; a solid European oak sideboard that features ceramic tile artworks by the Irish artist Cormac Boydell. It’s limited to 10 editions, and would act as the perfect base to rest the Juniper lamp, which is sculptural and functional thanks to its conical structure comprising three onyx pods paired with a linen shade and walnut light switch detailing.
Elsewhere, an illuminated Jellyfish mirror serves up a contemporary take on viral hits like the Ettore Sottsass-designed Poltronova Ultrafragola Mirror. Mid-Century Modern elements can be found among the seating, notably the Gray chrome-finished tubular steel chair and Harvest dining table that’s crafted in walnut with brass inlaid vegetables and mother-of-pearl mushroom details, while the Blade desk — a cantilevered aluminum item with leather tabletop dressings and lined inserts, limited to just 10 pieces — steps into more “space age” realms.
O’Sullivan’s work is expansive and explores eras for all tastes — his iconic Croissant sofa, originally conceived for the art deco-themed Berkeley bar and terrace, is updated with knobbly wooden feet for a kitsch, playful touch for a nod to the art deco era’s penchant for ornate feet. You can find a selection of his new collection above, and enquire about the range online.
