Holloway Li Unveils a Y2K-Inspired Furniture Collection

Nostalgia for the brash, colorful scenography that dominated TV screens at the turn of the millennium—think the Y2K sets of reality show Big Brother—suffuses the first standalone furniture collection by Holloway Li, the studio founded four years ago in London by interior architects Alex Holloway and Na Li.

Their T4 modules, which allow for everything from single seats to corner sofas, are produced by the newly formed furniture-design arm of Polkima, a Turkish manufacturer of complex molded-composite parts for the automotive industry like the interior fit-outs of Britain’s double-decker buses.

The sweeping curves of the T4 seats are made of fiberglass finished by hand with chenille-textured linen upholstery in Melon Yellow, Blush Pink, Overground Orange, and Cream Soda. As Paris Hilton would have said in the noughties, that’s hot.
