Spotlight on the great technological and scientific discoveries that will revolutionize (it’s already happening) the conquest of space, with the support of big international tycoons, from Elon Musk to Jeff Bezos and Richard Branson. This Story narrates the innate desire of human beings to go beyond familiar limits, especially those of space and speed; a desire we are seeing fulfilled thanks to the futuristic thinking of great visionaries, reflected in intense, energetic tones of blue, suggesting abstraction and imagination. In this palette orange is a ‘vibrant’ shade, along with dark blue and anthracite gray, as well as a synthetic green and a silvery lilac hue.
Paola Lenti | Telar
From the Aqua Collection, the Telar series has been designed by Lina Obregón. Composed of a chair with or without armrests, a chaise longue and a pouf, it stands out for its light structure in glossy coated stainless steel, covered by hand with woven elastic belting, in different sizes, using Rope, an exclusive material developed and produced by Paola Lenti for outdoor furnishings.
CC-Tapis | Super Fake Hot
A perfect representative of the Story, Super Fake Hot is the new color-combination created by Bethan Laura Wood for her already well-known collection Super Fake. A new color palette of warm and vibrant tones for the Super Rock and Super Round rugs, which were originally launched in June 2019.
Lapalma | Aaron
Two products in one: stool and table. This is the essence of Aaron. Pio&TitoToso have investigated everyday gestures and needs, all the way to the stool as an object with a range of different uses: the result is a product that blends two identities (in its metal core) giving rise to a new typology: a comfortable padded seat, and a swivel top useful as a surface on which to put things.
Gebrüder Thonet Vienna | NYNY
With a totemic spirit, NYNY relies on the asymmetrical stacking of geometric volumes with different functions (drawers, compartments with doors, desk) made in wood and Vienna straw, that are suspended thanks to the support of the wall-mounted metal structure. This multifaceted design by Storagemilano, with its versatile personality, expresses an interdependence of design, architecture and art, also declared in the name NYNY, as in New York, New York.
Iris Ceramica with Diesel Living | Cement Mexican
Cement Mexican combines the purity and solidity of cement with the chromatic power of the Mexican landscape. The color of tierras calientes, the sun, brightly decorated houses, the thousand hues of the ocean and the green of the olive trees: every shade is amplified, full, lived-in. A world that comes inside and colors space, adding personality and life.
Janus et Cie | Anatra
Design icon Patricia Urquiola introduces modular seating to the award-winning Anatra collection along with two new lounge chair designs. Sophisticated and intricately designed, the new lounge elements are constructed using the same soft and inviting textured braiding as the other seating pieces in the collection, wrapping the frame gently to create a harmonious weave.
Ethimo | Knit
Knit, the collection resulting from collaboration with Patrick Norguet in 2015, now sees the addition of two new elements: a comfortable sofa and a cozy armchair. These two new outdoor creations match the characteristic ‘genetic matrix’ of the wider collection, interpreted in the combination of natural or pickled teak for the structure and the woven rope of the seat.
Lualdi | Compass 55
Belonging to the iconic Rasomuro 55 System – the evolution of the company’s historic Rasomuro – the Compass 55 pivoting door model offers an advanced mobile system built into the wall. Compass 55 has a pivoting panel and controlled self-closure device; perfectly aligned, it has the appearance of a silent stage curtain. Its width accentuates the theatrical impact of a spatial divider incorporated in the architectural structure.
Txxnty Brand Design | Cryrock
Created by the designer Nunzia Acquaviva of Studio Inproject, the design studio of Euroluce – Light of Italy to which the brand belongs, Cryrock is a crystal ‘stone’ made in Tuscany in its natural state, enclosed in a metal cage, which together with the LED filament positioned at the base brings out the natural brilliance of the piece.
Cryrock is a one-off.
