THE SUNPAN DESIGN PROCESS

PRODUCT DESIGN STYLES

At SUNPAN, we are inspired by a multitude of patterns, forms and techniques that surround us. Our eclectic selection of products follows a variety of style expressions to create different looks for different tastes. 

Modern

Clean lines, sophisticated silhouettes and neutral colours give any space an elevated look. Natural materials like leather and marble provide a timeless quality while industrial materials like metal and glass give a modern edge. Featuring minimal designs and modular pieces that focus on form and function.  

Contemporary

Never out of style and always current, contemporary pieces are creative and eye-catching. Artfully constructed from a breadth of materials such as concrete, glass and fabric upholstery. Ranging from neutral to bold colours that bring attitude and originality to any room.

Mid-century

Retro-inspired with Scandinavian influence, these designs are rooted in functionality and simplicity. Warm and light-coloured woods predominate for a sense of comfort and stability. Graphic shapes and contrasting textures bring this style to life. 

Classic

Informed by historical influences and balanced proportions, classic style is timeless and refined. Defined by details and textures, expect to see quilting and channel tufting on fabrics and leathers in cream, brown and black tones. Be inspired to create an elevated look that focuses on high quality craftsmanship.

Global Traveler

These designs celebrate the beauty of handcrafted artistry from around the globe. Each artisan brings a unique personal touch to every piece to inform the perfectly imperfect look. The use of weathered wood finishes, natural fibres and dark and warm metals characterize this style.

Blending Technology with Craftsmanship 

We work with artisans that have been mastering their craft for decades. Just as each craftsperson employs techniques passed down for generations, our heirloom-grade pieces are designed to stand the test of time. Each piece is made using a combination of traditional hand craftsmanship and technological innovation. The result is the creation of products that are durable and exceptional.   

Our products incorporate a mix of materials based on their aesthetic qualities, sustainable aspects and functional characteristics. We source materials from around the world to identify those of the highest quality. We are proud to use reliable, long-lasting materials such as premium wood species, marble, travertine, top grain leather and durable performance fabrics.
