Changing the vantage point enables us to see the same object in new ways. Perhaps we can also discover details that previously eluded us. This is what Meridiani has done with the Open Air 2020 collection, the furniture for outdoor living areas that combines beauty and practicality, now also offered in a version for indoor spaces.
The choice of Andrea Parisio, designer and art director, has been to conserve a coherent, recognizable décor idea, reflecting a reassuring vision of interior design through pieces with minimal lines, sinuous details and soft volumes, that make the home a true pleasure. Moreover, the action of Meridiani confirms the versatility of its production, 100% Made in Italy, timeless, far from passing trends and fashions. The same design, then, but with different finishes.
The Ductal® cement, of the highest quality and technology, becomes pale gray, formed by the finest natural minerals and organic fibers that make it strong and flexible; the solid iroko wood gets a glossy or matte lacquer finish, in various colors; the cowhide, skillfully crafted by hand, becomes a protagonist with sartorial stitching and weaving; and the coated aluminium comes in four hues – Chalk, Petrol, Elephant and Black – for creative combinations.
Standouts in the collection include: Claude, a modular sofa, armchair or cot, in matte lacquered wood with a range of different colors, with soft padding for an oasis of relaxation; and Zoe, a series of chairs with ample padded seats, elegantly combining aluminium and woven cowhide, with two optional back cushions.
