The Flexform narrative of contemporary living continues; a story that takes changes in lifestyles into account, in the open, versatile dimension of today’s interiors, a balanced pursuit of comfort and elegance. Though the big news for 2019 is that of the debut of the outdoor collection, there are many new entries in Flexform’s indoor range, ready to enhance the domestic configurations offered by the company.
Starting with the large upholstered items, on which over the years the company has constructed its own inimitable philosophy of style and design, in a perfect combination of form and function.
The creativity of Antonio Citterio can be seen in the Romeo modular divan: light lines, ample padding, sartorial details, bearing witness to the excellence of the company’s know-how.
The rigorous geometry of the lines is tempered by the soft volumes of the seat, the low back and the goosedown cushions, offering generous support; the setting is supported at the base by minimal feet in die-cast aluminium.
The possibility of creating different compositions with the parts of the system makes Romeo extremely versatile; the same is true in terms of coverings, thanks to the option of selecting from all the fabrics and leathers of the Flexform collection.
In the area of upholstery, another emerging product is Sveva Soft. Carlo Colombo reprises the sinuous, enveloping lines of the Sveva armchair with a cowhide shell, now reinterpreted in a new completely upholstered version. The design feature is the soft enclosure made of a special polymeric material with remarkable structural properties. The base also plays an important role to guarantee maximum comfort and usability: the aluminium swiveling support comes in versions with four or five spokes. The family also includes a two-seat sofa of the same name, covered in cowhide.
A different kind of allure emerges in the Ortigia seating family, in a more contemporary tone but without losing the accent on precious materials and details: the solid canaletto walnut or ash of the structure, the cowhide woven entirely by hand of the back, the leather covering (or fabric) for the seat. The aesthetic outcome is certainly one of great visual lightness, even in the armchair version, combined with the model without armrests and the dining chair.
From the big protagonists to the smaller seats, Flexform offers a complete, all-around decor panorama, also including storage solutions and complements. The red thread is aesthetic research, which once again focuses on pure lines and essential volumes. This is the direction of Carlo Colombo’s design for the Jeremy storage series, playing with the dualism of full and empty zones, revealed and hidden spaces, open compartments or units closed by fold-back doors. The contrast continues in terms of materials, such as fumé glass and heat-treated oak, as well as the various textures of the lacquer version in a range of different finishes.
