gotham sofa 1

Gotham two-seater

La geometria lineare e la leggerezza visiva del sofà Gotham nascono dal telaio metallico, una struttura semplice ed essenziale che supporta il cuscini della seduta e dello schienale. Questi al contrario sono abbondanti e voluminosi e creano un contrasto visivo fra la base di supporto e gli elementi imbottiti, fra necessità strutturale e comodità di seduta. Il sofà Gotham è una perfetta seduta a due posti per spazi più piccoli. Combinandolo con la poltrona e il pouf della stessa linea si ottiene un set da soggiorno completo ma estremamente contenuto.

little big bubble 1

Little Big Bubble

Un poltroncina che attraverso un attento lavoro sulle proporzioni, sulle imbottiture e sul trattamento delle superfici combina un’immagine pulita con un comfort eccezionale. Nuova ma dall’immagine usata, è a somma del fascino del vissuto e delle prestazioni del nuovo. Nell’estetica della seduta avere le mollezze e le abbondanze di un oggetto che ha perso la sfrontata turgidità del nuovo è un segno di eleganza e di durata dell’immagine.

Fusto in massello di pioppo e multistrato di pioppo e betulla, supporto interno con cinghie, imbottitura interna in poliuretano e dacron accoppiato al materiale di rivestimento, imbottitura dei cuscini di seduta in piuma, rivestimento in pelle o tessuto.

New Outline 1

New Outline

New Outline was developed by maximizing the integration of form and function while using minimum material. The steel rod frames define a contour that is slender and light, becoming armrests and backrest as a simple and fluid line. The fully removable seat pan and backrest are made of rich cow-hide. Hidden elastic belts allow them to flex with the weight of the body without stretching thus preventing them from losing their shape and structural property. Familiarity and innovation avilable in 30 colours.

Cow hide seat and backrest, internal elastic straps, cadet gray painted steel structure. Other colours available upon request.

Aluchair 2

Aluchair

Aluchair features.the form of the archetypal wooden chair but it is made of solid metal: the body is created by mechanically joining two cleverly folded sheets of alluminium. No welding is involved in the manufacturing process and the surface is powder-coated. Four small alluminium cylinders complete the legs and house the rubber feet, making the chair extremely quiet despite its full alluminium body. Aluchair is simple and light and yet precious and comfortable.

Alluminium body, rubber feet. Available in RAL grey blue 5008, traffic red 3020, pale green or polished alluminium finish.

Nua 1

Nua

Nua is extremely light, comfortable, visually striking and stackable. The metal structure was developed using the principle of the trestle where each welded steel-rod segment contributes to the overall rigidity and equilibrium of the assembly. Comfort is provided by two cushions held in place by the geometry of the structure without the need for any type of fastening element. Nua champions a philosophy of economy of material where the visual expression of a physical principle translates directly into the form of the final product.

Structure made of painted steel rod in black, red or white. Polyurethane-filled cushions with fabric or leather covers.

Roll table

La base, scavata da un unico blocco di marmo, è una forma scultorea, geometrica e allo stesso tempo organica; a seconda del punto di vista il suo profilo cambia in modo drastico. Funzionalmente supporta un piano di cristallo extrachiaro che mantiene un perfetto equilibrio visivo con il volume di marmo sottostante senza intralciarne la visione. Con il nostro piano standard il tavolo Roll accoglie comodamente otto persone.

Marmo New Saint e piano in cristallo temperato extrachiaro da 15 mm. Altre pietre sono disponibili su richiesta.

long playing low

Big Sur low table

An original coffee table with two tops that can rotate around a central pivoting point, like the hands of a clock. This allows the table to expand and contract its usable surface and to adapt to different uses and spaces. The specular curves of the two asymmetrical elliptical tops create a sinuous flow that visually holds them together. They are supported by a light and essential structure made of copper tubing: the rich warm metal of the base plays beautifully against the natural surface of the stone.

Internal steel structure, external copper tubing, tops in marble and quartzite (white Carrara, green Bamboo, green/gray Cipollino, black New Saint Laurent) or in 2 cm-thick back-painted tempered glass (black, green or white).

Bic 1

Bic

Bic chair is made by a single metal assembly that supports the upholstered seat and holds the legs and the backrest. The use of different materials in the parts of the chair allowes us to take full advantage of their structural properties and their surface qualities: the tactile richness of solid wood for the backrest, the softness of ecoleather and foam for the seat, the rigidity of metal in the supporting structure and the durability of the unpainted natural finish in the solid-wood legs.

Painted steel structure, solid wood legs and backrest, ecoleather upholstered seat with elastic support belts and polyurethane cushion. Available in black or white with legs in natural wood.

wood cover

Wood table

A family of 4-legged tables made of MDF covered with blue stained eucalyptus veneer. Through a simple trick the table, which is in fact the assembly of five parts, appears sculpted from a solid block. The four lateral elements, once they are assembled with the top, become structural withoutthe need for additional parts that would in turn compromise the sculptural effect of the piece.. The table top is 70 cm wide, like a classic fratina, the ancient long dining table of monasteries. This choice of proportions privileges length over width, thus slendering the table and increasing the proximity and the initimacy of diners.

MDF, blue eucalyptus veneer. Other veneers are available upon request

Rock low table

A 4-legged low table completely made of stone. Through a simple trick the table, which is in fact the assembly of five parts, appears sculpted from a solid block. The four lateral elements, once they are assembled with the top, become structural without the need for additional parts that would in turn compromise the sculptural effect of the piece. The surface of the table is treated with a slightly three-dimensional weathered finish that further increases the preciousness and uniqueness of the natural material and that in time hides potential scratches and stains.

White Carrara, black New Saint Laurent or Cipollino marble. Weathered finish. Other stones and finishes are available upon request.

Nadi re-interprets the structure of an antique table, rich but extremely light, through an aesthetic gesture that enhances the age and at the same time the modernity of the piece. The coffee table version features a sunken top upholstered in blue cotton velvet that contains and protects objects like an oversized box. An original concept created for commercial contexts and now carried into the home.

Roll side table

Il tavolino Roll è ottenuto utilizzando il materiale di risulta della produzione del tavolo omonimo: perottenere la finestra passante della grande base cilindrica carotiamo il blocco di marmo ottenendo due cilindri identici; con questi produciamo altrettanti tavolini Roll. Sono infatti copie ridotte in scala del tavolo da pranzo: il piano in vetro è rimpiazzato da un semplice bordino di contenimento scavato nel marmo e leggermente rialzato che permette al tavolino di assolvere alla sua funzione con sicurezza.

long playing etagere

Long Playing étagère

An essential but rich étagère featuring 3 columns made of copper tubing, each one supporting 5 circular shelves made of painted glass or stone. Each column rotates vertically and independently while remaining connected to the next, allowing the etagere to modify its foot-print and to hug curved walls and corners or to gather its 3 columns together to become a more compact free-standing unit. The warm copper structure plays beautifully against the natural surface of the stone shelves and the glossy finish of the glass ones. Additional units can be connected to form extensive bookcases or partitions. Long Playing is also available as a single column.

Internal steel structure, external copper tubing, tops in marble/quartzite (white Carrara, green Bamboo, green/gray Cipollino, black New Saint Laurent) and in 2 cm-thick back-painted tempered glass (black, green or white).
