    4_2_KAL_Meisterstuecke_Emerso_risultato
    Meisterstücke’s sculptural bathtub and washstand are the highlights of the Kaldewei premium collection that the company will present at Salone Bagno 2016 (Salone del mobile Milano). Working with star designer Arik Levy, Kaldewei has extended its Meisterstücke premium collection and, at the same time, has added matching washstands. The ensemble of the Meisterstück Emerso bathtub and Meisterstück Emerso washstand feature captivating and extraordinary style elements: the free-standing, fully enamelled bathtub has a slightly rising edge so that, like looking at a silk ribbon rolled in on itself, the eye is seemingly allowed to roam infinitely. The coordinated washstand is the inverse counterpart whose edge swoops inwards into the body of the piece. Meisterstück Emerso bathtub was designed for one person. With its high back rest and long base area, it is an ergonomic and modern interpretation of historical bathtub shapes. The edge of the tub, turning in on itself, makes this model into a flowing sculpture that appears to develop infinitely, sensually connecting diagonal and horizontal lines. The bathtub is entirely made of steel enamel with seamless, conical coating, flush-fitting waste cover and discreet overflow outlet. The exceptional design makes this model into a free-standing piece of perfection for the bathroom. The Meisterstück Emerso washstand is the inversely designed counterpart of the bathtub. Its edge curves inward, visually swooping into the body of the washstand. In this way the ensemble of bathtub and washstand produce a harmonious, self-contained unit. Thanks to its fully enamelled shape, the Meisterstück Emerso washstand can be installed with the descending side either facing into or away from the room. It is available both as a free-standing or built-in model.

  • 03/18/16--03:01: PREVIEW SALONE 2016: GRAFF
  • GRAFF presents an iconic art gallery at the next edition of Salone del Mobile in Milan, called Art of Bath Gallery. It’s a new artistic and emotional journey undertaken by the brand and created by Davide Oppizzi in partnership with D-­‐Cube Design. The GRAFF booth at the International Bathroom Exhibition is a veritable art gallery, an the visitors are invited to see, from a modern angle, classical artworks in which history, art, symbology and sensuality, past and present, mingle. The latter are reinterpreted by Vincent Calmel, an internationally known photographer, specialized in portraying eminent, international personalities. The display revolves around five pictures: the Birth of Venus by Botticelli, Death of Marat by Jacques-­‐Louis David, La Grand Odalisque by Ingres, Ophelia by John Everett Millais and Gabrielle d’Estrées by the Fontainebleau school. The architecture of GRAFF’s booth is serious and monumental at the same time. Spaces are customized, room-­‐by-­‐room. Shower systems, faucets, showerheads and accessories connect, weaving interesting, colorful and iconic threads. The result is a strong and vibrant “canvas” depicting the most salient items from the latest GRAFF collections. Each piece proves to be, in its own way, the protagonist of such invaluable “mise en scène”, aligning itself with a specific aesthetic philosophy: the search for essentiality, free of ornamentation. If demonstrating adroitness and bravura for a company coincides with being capable of capturing a shape and turning it into a trend, GRAFF is a master of it.

    “The Design Of Life”: the relevance of the bond among art, design and beauty. The Design Week puts Milan under the spotlight: the city becomes a proscenium for events and art installations stirring creativity all around. And Sephora chose to be part of this lively, innovating mood as well. How? Through an extraordinary visual and emotional impact artwork conveying the artist spirit in step with the brand philosophy. The Sephora store in Piazza Gae Aulenti contributes with an idea that pledges to juice one of the most iconic squares in town up. To realize this project, Sephora entrusted the Calabria native and Tuscany adoptive illustrator Ray Oranges, whose jazzy, avant-gard look perfectly embodies the dynamic attitude of the brand. His artworks tend to basics with few distractions and precise clues focused on the concept’s core Even a customary moment can turn into art: it’s exactly the message Ray Oranges wants to get across through this project he conceived for Sephora. The windows of piazza Gae Aulenti store come alive in colours and three-dimensionality. Abstract figures are highlighted by contrasting chromatic combinations. 3D elements are settled by the windows allowing the customers to become active parts of the installation. The artwork leaves its borders and turn into “live art”: beholders may enjoy it not only through their eyes, but also totally interacting with it. The artwork will be displayed until May 8th at the beauty store of Piazza Gae Aulenti 6.

  • 03/24/16--03:00: PREVIEW SALONE 2016: KREOO
  • At this year Salone del Mobile Milano, Kreoo, young Italian company already leader worldwide in the creation of iconic marble design for architecture, interior and outdoor, will present new fascinating collections, including the Kora bathtube and the Tangram series of tables. The new pieces will be protagonist of the outfitting; an unexplored dimension of marble. Kora, an elegant ellipsoidal marble bathtub, that gives uniformity and elegance to the bathroom ambience, evoking the ancient Tibetan bells. Born as a complement to the sink, Kora also has a reference to a traditional musical instrument of West Africa. The reference to the music, and specifically to the sound of water is the soundtrack of a new way of experiencing the bathroom of contemporary people. As in Gong, Kora is cut from one single solid
block, carved with a meticulous and fine technique,
achieved by digging the stone, firstly with
specialized technology and then handcrafted for details and finishes.
The tub rests on an iron tripod that supports its volume, giving stability and elegance. A new item in Kreoo Living Collection; that’s the Tangram collection, characterized by a glass top that highlights the table soul, its base, made by interlocking elements of marble and wooden blocks of different colors and measures. From different geometries, thicknesses and materials, among them complementary, a new harmonious union of shapes has born, highly innovative and characterized by a great visual impact. At Salone del Mobile 2016, the Tangram collection is presented in three different solutions: Low coffee table, characterized by a single base, available in matt walnut wood essence and Bianco Estremoz. A table with one central base, proposed Zebrano Essence and Bianco Calacatta, with square or round top. A table with two bases, proposed Zebrano Essence and Black Marquina.

  • 03/29/16--02:05: PREVIEW SALONE 2016: LEMA
  • For over 40 years, Lema has championed the ‘Made in Italy’ aesthetic, by expertly mixing innovation and tradition and  turning quality and personalisation into its unique selling point. Lema’s strength lies in its extraordinary manufacturing ability and typically Italian excellence, that have allowed the company to combine the values and technological efficiencies of a large enterprise with fine and unrivalled craftsmanship. At Salone del Mobile 2016, the brand reconfirms its home archetype proposing new pieces that, through grace of their design and refined finishings, tell the usual discretion of Lema style. Among the latest products, the formal neatness typical of the design language by Piero Lissoni, art director of the brand, creates Luce. Starting from the classic iconography of the table, Lissoni has worked on the exaggeration of its characteristics by subtraction: wooden top and a die-cast aluminium structure identify themselves in the absolute lightness of the design thanks to minimum volumes and thicknesses. A new proposal with a contemporary, almost technical imprint, designed to furnish both refined domestic environments and sophisticated contract spaces. The brand also renews its collaboration with Christophe Pillet who signs STEWARD, an elegant wooden container with fine details in lacquered HPL (thickness 6 mm) and painted metal base combining the charm of an handmade piece with a contemporary industrial design approach. An essential cube in heat-treated wood, with a vague retro flavor, that presents folding doors to hide large compartments and drawers at the service of the living area. Layering of styles, with vintage references, also for Graceland, round table, again by Christophe Pillet, who plays on neat and rational shapes and is characterize by the strong personality of the metal frame, combined with the top proposed here in the stylish finish Argilla.

    The Ki collection, that will be presented at Salone del Mobile 2016, combines the prestigious Italian craftsmanship of Scavolini and the distinctive approach of Japanese studio Nendo which interprets design as surprise, experimentation and refined details. The Ki concept, designed for kitchen and bathroom environments is trying to make the kitchen “hidden” in two objects to create space and offer complete design freedom: a container, an unique object with a strong connotation, synthesis of an expressive code that can be repeated ad infinitum and a wooden shelf of pure essentiality (Ki in Japanese, meaning at the same time container and wood). With this project, Scavolini envisions new ways of inhabiting space, with the pivotal element—the container—resting on linear-shaped shelves. What emerges is an actual storage system that dominates compositions designed for both kitchens and bathrooms, with Scavolini Bathrooms. The kitchen. In the Ki kitchen, which includes linear, island and peninsula compositions, the containers rest on shelves and function as wall units, or re-appear in the sink and hob units—novel, important elements that add a personal touch. An absolute total look: the doors, profile handles, upstands, back panels, plinths and tops come with a single finish. The bathroom. For this environment, the container replaces traditional wall units and also defines the wash basin, offered in the lay-on, semi-recessed, under-top and free-standing version. The mirrors, rigorous slabs resting on the tops and against the walls, conceal a practical LED lighting system.

  • 04/01/16--01:16: PREVIEW SALONE 2016: PORRO
  • “BESPOKE XL” – Salone Internazionale del Mobile PAD 7 STAND D15-E18
. Set up: Piero Lissoni After its 90th anniversary celebrations, Porro keeps travelling with new awareness along its original path through the world of design: modelling systems and furniture with a highly selected mix of finishings, clean outlines and flawless details.
If research and innovation have always been at the basis of its expertise, the brand has been able to reinterpret them with a distinctive attitude that has become its symbol: a cross use of materials and technologies involving memories and cultures, where aesthetic simplicity conceals a set of layers and oscillations between past and present combining tradition and innovation in order to soften the boundaries between seriality and handicraft. The result is a home with the style of Porro, but every time with a unique flavour. As for the new compositions of the company’s systems, they are entrusted to Piero Lissoni’s work, the alchemist whose task is to dose essences, hues and technical innovations to create new settings, whereas the development of collections continues the professional liason between Porro and Gamfratesi (the couple composed by Stine Gam and Enrico Fratesi), whose approach to the project combines the craftsmanship typical of the Danish classic furniture with the conceptual process typical of Italian design. Started last year with Traveller, it goes on with a new chair that brings imagination even further. The materials adopted become softer and softer, from tapered wood to leather. The structure, visible on the back and on the sides where a close-fitting dress can be put on and off, conveys an idea of conviviality and a holiday atmosphere, although its unobjectionable style also makes it suitable for a urban context. The clear 50s-inspired contour animates it, providing it with diverse perspectives from all points of view. An object designed for a home-shelter, where it is possible to leave the world behind and let one’s mind lead the way. “BESPOKE XS” – Fuori Salone. Installation: P.Lissoni
c/o Showroom Porro duriniquindici
Via Durini 15, Milan
12/17 April h. 10:00 – 21.00
11 April press preview h. 10:00 – 20.00. In the showroom at via Durini 15 instead, wardrobes are in the spotlight, the quintessence of Porro’s customisation. Here the company’s bespoke does not only manifest itself through the accurate finishings of doors and interiors, but also through original and cutting-egde space solutions, through the rationalisation and optimisation of interiors so that the objects inside – shirts, clothes and one’s most beloved accessories – are not just safe and tidy, but exhibited and valued as well, with the obsessive attention to hidden details which makes a wardrobe by Porro different from any other, a world apart. A dense pathway hosts 8 subsequent possible solutions, confirming that spacious, breath-taking areas are not necessary: the wardrobe project by Porro shows off its absolute quality whatever the size. Like a tailor, Porro masterfully sews its wardrobes like a custom-made dress that is able to adapt to all desires and spaces, combining industrial production and handicraft, off-the-shelf product and one-off piece.

    EVER continues its research in order to make the bathroom complete, turning its gaze to the elegance of detail and the warmth of the materials used, stimulating all the sensory experiences. LINK and SHINE are the preview that the brand will present at Salone del Mobile 2016. Link, design Diego Cisi, allows the configuration of many installation solutions: the modular straight system is in fact made up of a cristalplant basin and the furniture has different wood finishes, which have the same size of the basin and can be perfectly right/left aligned. The front handle is integrated sideways in order not to protrude, allowing combinations of several elements without splits between them. The furniture module, designed to clear the bathroom shelves from too many objects, when opened, has a compartment used as a container and equipped, on request, with a triple electrical socket. The cover can be equipped, on request, with a mirror inside. Ideal for a contemporary home, the Link system has been initially designed for facilities dedicated to hospitality with no architectural barriers and without giving up to design and interior, even in the bathroom. SHINE, design Monica Graffeo, is a handle, a strong support but also an auxiliary light for the night or to create a warm atmosphere that acts as a guide in the bathroom. The LED light bar is adjustable in different positions, projecting the light downwards, upwards or toward the wall. The support functionality (up to 120kg), a standard of all products Ever by Thermomat, is maintained and guaranteed in all positions through an effective locking system of the light bar. It can be both vertically and horizontally installed and inside the shower box.

    A wild but sophisticated setting, dominated by a nature that envelops and overwhelms: this is one of the new moods developed by Ludovica and Roberto Palomba for Kartell by Laufen, which during the Salone Internazionale del Mobile 2016 presents a backdrop made of floral games and urban jungle patterns. The vast size of the collection permits its pieces to blend in like chameleons, adapting to any shifts of taste and culture. The freestanding washbasin is also in black and white, specially designed for contract, a focal point for Kartell by Laufen, and following a careful study to develop custom finishes to meet the widest range of needs. One integral part of the collection is the new washbasin in white matt with a length of 120 centimetres made in SaphirKeramik, the revolutionary material that adds the mineral corundum – a component of sapphires – to the ceramic blend, bringing extreme solidity and extraordinary flexural strength. The borders of this washstand are the proof: just a few millimetres of thickness suffice to guarantee hardness second only to that of diamonds. With this new version, once again Kartell by Laufen demonstrates the capacity to respond to all necessities, both in terms of space and of style.
