New Armani/Casa collection a triumph of lightness and colour

The Armani Casa 2018 collection provides the perfect platform to showcase the aesthetic sensitivity of Giorgio Armani, creating a sophisticated combination of different materials, colours and a real sense of lightness

Art, design, fashion. The Armani/Casa 2018 collection is an expertly judged fusion of styles encompassing furniture, accessories, lighting design and a plethora of different domestic objects and fabrics.
At the heart of everything is Armani/Casa’s signature light touch in its use of aesthetics and materials. Volumes are reduced to the bare minimum, while lightweight structures accentuate the ethereal feel running through the collection. Block colours are daringly combined, with red, indigo, green and petrol blue the most prominent.

The collection draws on both urban and natural styles, while sophisticated combinations of different materials also play a key role. The brand-new pairing of wood and plexiglass, for example, is used for the Net side table, where a chessboard pattern is created through the alternation of methacrylate and natural canaletto walnut.

The lines and proportions of the furniture reveal a new concept of elegance, elevated by the quality of materials used, particularly in the Neilsen sofa and Nathalie armchair. There are also some beautiful, virtuoso touches such as those that adorn the Norigami modular side table. The stand-out piece in the collection, it is the perfect combination of lightness, practicality and bold material combinations.

There is – as always – ample space afforded to the area of lighting design, where oriental-inspired lamps such as the limited-edition Nema piece in selenite create soft, dancing shadows.
One material making a welcome return is Murano glass, its authenticity guaranteed by the Armani/Casa Murano logo, while the continuing Armani/Casa Exclusive Textiles by Rubelli collection puts colour front and centre, with silky, sparkling effects bringing vibrancy and brightness.
