COS x Hay
A CURATED COLLECTION FOR THE MODERN HOME. 现代家庭里的现代家居.
I really wish I had a trip to Europe planned for some time soon… London, Vienna or Gothenburg, please. For sightseeing of course, but mostly because the new collaboration between two of my favourite brands will only be available in shops in these cities. No Asia at all, at least not for now.
我真希望近期可以去欧洲度假 – 伦敦、维也纳或者哥德堡。为了旅游观光，更是为了去看看我最爱的两个品牌的合作系列，该系列将会在这三个城市进行出售。没有亚洲，至少目前没有。
Take a minimalistic and sophisticated fashion brand from Stockholm, with a color palette ranging from dusty greys to whites with some red and green injections. Then combine it with with a furniture & lifestyle brand of Danish furniture whose designers mostly use wood and natural fibres for their simple and functional pieces.
The result is the brand new COS x Hay collaboration – a set of new folding coffee tables (designed together with Tomas Alonso) and some handpicked classics from Hey repertoire will be on sale for lucky customers only in the UK, Austria and Sweden and online in Europe.
两者联手合作的就是：COS x Hay – 主打两张可折叠木质咖啡桌（由Tomas Alonso所设计），及Hay的一系列室内家居装饰品。该合作系列产品只面对那些幸运的来自英国、奥地利和瑞典的顾客，并在欧洲线上同步出售。
The two brands have worked together before – they do share aesthetic and values, and they are already partners as Hay is actually providing all the furniture in COS shops around the world.
这并不是两个品牌第一次合作 – 它们的确分享同样的审美观和价值观，Hay一直以来也在全球范围内为COS提供店铺家具。
A few more words about the folding tables. They both have a circular top supported by three legs, one of which takes the form of a thin pole – available in pale blue-green or white. When the pole is removed, the table folds down flat for easy storage and transportation.
This is what COS and Hay’ executives said about the collaboration.
“We have always admired what Hay does and we share many values. Our customers have a keen interest in interior design and we felt it was the right time to offer alternative products that complimented our clothing collections. We made sure we selected items from across the Hay range so that there’s something for every room, occasion and price point, we like to describe it as Hay seen through the eyes of COS.” Martin Andersson, Head of Design, COS.
“我们一直非常欣赏Hay，并与其有着许多共同的理念。COS的顾客也对室内家具装饰品表现出浓厚兴趣。现在正是双方合作的绝佳时机，以此来拓宽COS的产品线。同时，COS也十分注重这一系列产品的多样性，从而来满足顾客对不同房间、不同场合和不同价位的需求。” COS的设计总监Martin Andersson如是说。
“Over many years we have been very happy to work with COS on so many different levels and projects. At Hay we see ourselves in between fashion and architecture and in working with COS we feel like we have found a perfect home.” Mette + Rolf Hay, Cofounders, HAY.
“一直以来，我们在不同程度和不同项目上都跟COS合作非常愉快。我们对自身品牌定位介于时尚和建筑之间，而这次与COS的合作，让我们感觉自己找到了一个完美的家。”HAY的联合创始人Mette + Rolf Hay如是说。
