Design giant Minotti and German leather masters Walter Knoll were the standouts in halls five and seven, with Gervasoni, Living Divani and Thonet also presenting excellent new offerings.
April 22nd, 2014
With its quiet elegance and timeless sophistication, the new collection reflects all that we have come to expect of the Italian brand. In particular, the Collar Sofa caught our eye for its adjustable armrests and seat backs.
The Seito dining table by Wolfgang C R Mezger in white quartz and fine nut wood is characterised by a lovely play of angles and lines.
Walter Knoll’s Seito dining table is a picture of well-considered construction.
The Brick 233 table is inspired by Nordic classicism and features a special material made from environmentally friendly granules. The collection includes two chairs in wood with upholstered seat and backrest.
Piero Lissoni’s Lipp is the latest protagonist in Living Divani’s indoor collection. The sofa reinterprets the capittone style in a contemporary way and comes with a hand-quilted and padded lower back pillow. It also has a bench that can be positioned either at the front or back of the sofa depending on need. Available in leather or fabric.
For the Salone, Thonet’s classics such as Mart Stam’s iconic S43 cantilevered chair have gone bold with colour. Options include red, brown, grey, grey-green, mustard yellow, white and black.
