Lan­za­vec­chia + Wai

Home & Decor (Malaysia) - - Closer To Home -

Helmed by de­sign­ers Francesca Lan­za­vec­chia from Italy and Hunn Wai from Sin­ga­pore, the de­sign firm of Lan­za­vec­chia & Wai is known for its multi-faceted ap­proach to de­sign and ex­per­i­men­ta­tion with ma­te­ri­als. Its pen­chant for pro­duc­ing func­tional items rich in con­text con­tin­ues this year with the Scrib­ble ta­bles for De Castelli, Poly­he­dra rugs for No­dus, Fla­bello mir­ror and di­vider for Gal­lotti & Radice, and Soft Nest for House of Birds.

In par­tic­u­lar, the Icosae­dro and Dode­cae­dro lim­ited-edi­tion rugs for No­dus con­jure up 3-D tac­til­ity on 2-D planes, thanks to both the skill of the Nepalese weavers, as well as de­signs that echo the math­e­mat­i­cal pre­ci­sion of geo­met­ric forms. The colours used, how­ever, ex­press the ro­man­ti­cism of sun­sets over an­cient ru­ins.
