About Highline: Contemporary American and cocktails from a trio of F&B veterans.
Project description: In 2016, Red Design was surfing the California wave throughout the year. At ‘Highline’, Red Design bring mid-century California vibes to Shanghai, including in the vivid color of the furniture throughout the space. This furniture was designed in collaboration with MatzForm a Danish-run, Shanghai-based furniture company. Highline’s interior takes cues from the mid-century design language of Eero Saarinen and Frank Lloyd Wright, interpreting organic forms of natural stone to transform the space into an urban gem. Given the influence of Danish furniture on this era, MatzForm’s furniture is perfectly embedded in this design ideology. The MatzForm approach offers a customizable service using imported and locally available woods, loving hand sanded to a silky softness then finished and polished to a soft glow. At Highline, walnut and oak frames combine with upholstery in a Californian palette of orange, greenery, nude and sand fabric and leather. The combination of the refined spatial design and comfortable lounge furniture enable the customer to enjoy the California scenery in Shanghai: a stunning sunrise and sunset can be experienced on the elevated terrace overlooking Huaihai Park. Although Søren Matz, the founder of MatzForm, says “in our generation, we never dine in low seats”, the generation of young influencers that visit Highline have adapted to this new way of dining, creating a new restaurant paradigm in Shanghai.

MatzForm is one man’s dream to become reality. For over 38 years, master cabinetmaker Søren Matz has been dedicated to quality furniture. He has made furniture for the rich and influential across four continents, but what he dreamed of was to bring finely designed and superbly manufactured furniture to the world. With MatzForm, that dream has finally been realized. After spending 18 years in Japan making fine cabinetry, Søren moved to China to establish his own label - a line of elegant, quality furnishings made to the highest standards of quality, manufactured under license in China to the strictest of environmental considerations. He succeeded. MatzForm brings fine design, heirloom quality, and eco-awareness together.
