New collection 2018

Focus on artistry and fun, colorful design at Habitat Manila

The Baci sofa as featured in Habitat Manila's new collection

Hello, Manila!

If you’ve been following our social media accounts, you might have noticed that we teased a number of products from our new collection. They lit up our feed with so much color and fresh, cheeky shapes and patterns. They gave an impression of following no singular motif or high-concept theme. But really, in its own way, the collection you’ve seen so far has a distinct cadence, light and energetic, showing that sophisticated design can also be a lot of fun.

For this year’s products Habitat tapped a number of young creatives to play with the concept of haute couture. Their task was to infuse new poetry into practical, everday objects, and make them look “high fashion.” Of course the process resulted in designs that flirted with the idea of haute couture, but also jostled its doctrines in humorous, friendly ways.    

The Victorine armchair  is an oversized, modern take on the bergère chair of 18th century France.

Drop candle holders by Spyros Kizis for Habitat

Spyros Kizis’ exclusive piece, Drop (P 4,150), is such a visual treat. A thin magnetic metal plate acts as a base upon which three steel candle holders delicately “float” above the surface.
