Meridiani: like a bespoke suit

Sinuous forms, rounded corners, sartorial coverings: the new 2021 Collection is perfectly wearable, a new development from Meridiani created by Andrea Parisio to narrate the personality of those who choose it, inch by inch

The quality of a suit lies in the details. And the same can be said of refined design. Meridiani interprets spaces, just as a tailor interprets a body, bringing out the value of the artifact – the basis of the timeless style of the brand – and perfectly interpreting the identity of the user.

The new collection by Andrea Parisio, creative director of the company, faithfully replicates this corporate philosophy in an ongoing dialogue between form and material, a mixture of elements and colors, for infinite combinations in interiors. Solid wood is the protagonist, as its essence and warmth are shaped like fabric in the Emilia, Teresa and Teresina seating, where the forms become sinuous and the angles are softened to gently accommodate the body.

A noble material that reveals its purity here, or is covered with lacquer colors: from white to terracotta, sun-yellow to putty tones, intense brown to navy blue, petroleum blue and spice tones. In perfect tune, the solid wood is juxtaposed with sartorial coverings in fabric, leather or precious cowhide, a mixture that sets the tone of every piece.

Emilia has clean lines and compact proportions, available in an upholstered version with soft lines,  or with a cowhide shell for a more rigorous look.

Teresa and Teresina, respectively a chair with or without armrests, or a lounge model, have two characters enclosed in the same body, depending on the choice of ‘soft’ and ‘kuoio’ versions. The first is welcoming, with padded backs and seats covered in the fabrics or leathers of the collection, with special double ribbed stitching; the second is more forceful, thanks to a cowhide shell that forms the back, armrests and seat.

Both provide a pocket for objects, optional in the upholstered versions and built into those in cowhide, for placement to the right or left, or on both sides: an elegant, practical container for magazines, books, blankets, tablets or small everyday useful objects.

The rounded aesthetic qualities of the solid wood are at their best in another piece from the collection: the Vittorio low circular table. Its colors of Tobacco, Black, White, Light, and the glossy or matte finishes in various hues, work well with the back-painted glass, marble or oak of the top, offering a range of combinatory possibilities, also thanks to an optional lower top and the different sizes and heights that make this such a versatile piece. To enjoy as a single presence, or in settings with armchairs and sofas, combining the models of the collection.
