Gabri (on cover) is the first bed designed by Matteo Zorzenoni for Bolzan Letti. Featuring a frame in finely crafted cowhide, with great attention to detail, Gabri is a light, enveloping bed that contains the mattress and conceals it, incorporated in the fluid lines running along the border. The special grooves near the corners add a distinctive aesthetic note while also facilitating the action of making the bed.
Always known for its collections of glass mosaic tile, Bisazza introduces a new material, marble, in the decorative solutions of the Marmosaico line (designed by Carlo Dal Bianco). The patterns in the collection are available in two color variants and are made with marble tiles, carefully cut by hand by the mosaicists of Atelier Bisazza, in keeping with traditional artistic methods. Every design triggers an evocative atmosphere, as seen in the beautiful palaces located in the center of Milan.
The Pensieri Panteschi collection created by Elena Salmistraro for Lithea is a story, a cutaway view, a snapshot. In particular, Favare is a decorative panel whose three-dimensional graphics suggest favare, the curious geysers of volcanic vapor that blast up out of the ground. The blue base is in Bardiglio Imperiale marble, and the parts are in Bianco Fenice with copper leaf applied by hand.
An organic pattern composed of 7 different precious types of marble: the work by the South Tyrolean architect and designer Hannes Peer, resulting from intense collaboration with Del Savio 1910, enhances the use of stone, transforming this meeting point between creativity and craftsmanship into a screen called Vento, which with its radial arrangement suggests the compass rose.
La Suite bespoke collection by Somma 1867 includes sheets made with the finest satin and percale, cashmere blankets, luxurious towels and robes in honeycomb fabric, and refined linens for the table jacquard weave, precious satin and linen. Introduced in 2019 and marked by the pallor of white with precious silver gray inserts, La Suite has now been expanded with deep hues of blue, green and yellow. This is a new color trend that has emerged from the world of yachting and large luxury vessels, intercepted by the group’s Style and Product division helmed by Massimo Moltrasio.
Reva Cocoon designed by Patrick Jouin for Pedrali is a lounge seating system for outdoor use: sofas composed of linear parts, corners and chaises longues, with backs in two different heights. The series offers impressive backs in stainless steel covered with a weave of polypropylene cord, which stands up to weathering while guaranteeing a natural feel. The cording applied 100% in Italy by expert artisans offers the necessary privacy while conserving the open character, allowing air and light to pass, thanks to a weave that is denser in the lower portion and more permeable in the upper part.
Fragment is the new collection of sustainable furnishings and surfaces created by the designer Gwenael Nicolas of Curiosity Tokyo for Budri. Fragment stems from the idea of recouping thin fragments from mosaic staves and slabs during the working process, small pieces with different widths, lengths and thicknesses. Lined up and joined with a component patented by the company to make them extremely strong, they form longitudinal and horizontal patterns of monochrome or multicolored shadings. The collection combines chromatic effects of white and gray tones, with multicolor versions resembling weaves.
Representing a meeting point between the production of Venetian mosaics and the world of design, this project by Casarialto consists of a series of stools and coffee tables conceived as décor elements, or as a base for plants and elegant table lamps. Each stool has a ceramic core created by hand by expert Venetian ceramists, covered with minute mosaic tiles, crafted in the Orsoni atelier and cut by hand by Michela Nardin.
Cimento Collection, the collection produced in Cimento®, the exclusive registered compound made with over 90% mineral aggregate mixed with a cement-based binder, is a series that began in 2019 under the art direction of Aldo Parisotto, Parisotto + Formenton Architetti, and now expands with new elements combined with forcefully expressive colors inspired by Venice, with golden scales or tiny fragments of colored glass to create decorative motifs. Patricia Urquiola, in her first collaboration with the company, has interpreted the innovation of Cimento® in a collection of furnishings, such as the Frari coffee tables.
The Tom Bombadil sideboard from Promemoria, designed by Romeo Sozzi, is a storage unit with wooden doors that illustrate age-old villages, memories of Lake Como. The geometric elements interlock, while the multicolored and spatial balances are the result of an inlaid composition of different types of wood. The entire structure is in Sapele mahogany, like the internal drawers, accessorized with leather mats.
The sideboard of the Canneto Collection, created by Adriano Design for De Castelli, is a sculptural volume with a canneté pattern of brushed metal rods of various diameters. The cabinet with two doors contains internal shelves and dividers. The two lateral L-shaped doors open at 90° thanks to a particular design solution. The upper top in metal is slightly recessed with respect to the doors and the perimeter, revealing the canaletto walnut frame.
Drift by Elie Saab Maison is a cabinet that suggests the dynamism of dunes shaped by the wind, with a special liquid metal finish for the undulated doors. The collection plays with spaces, displaying it regal presence without excess, while enhancing the balance of its forms.
