Con­tem­po­rary in­te­ri­ors

Avion Luxury International Airport Magazine - - DESIGN -

Ex­tra­or­di­nary but ev­ery­day items, in­clud­ing fur­ni­ture and ac­ces­sories, have been given the de­sign treat­ment at Mi­lan’s Salone del Mo­bile (Fur­ni­ture Show). For Gior­gio Ar­mani, the lines and pro­por­tions of the pieces de­fine a new el­e­gance, which is em­pha­sised by the qual­ity of the ma­te­ri­als. This recog­nis­able style, the prin­ci­ple of which is light­ness, fea­tures thin lines and light struc­tures. In­ter­pret­ing this aes­thetic is a re­fined com­bi­na­tion of ma­te­ri­als, such as wood and plex­i­glass, and the use of colours, in­clud­ing the pri­mary tones of red, indigo, green and petrol blue. The cre­ative ca­reer of Paola Lenti, in­stead, be­gins with an el­e­men­tary prin­ci­ple: she re­stores to el­e­ments a vi­tal im­pulse, trans­form­ing them into one-of-a-kind ob­jects with new forms, un­usual weaves and in­ter­est­ing colours. She cre­ates new colour shades, unique nu­ances, un­usual com­bi­na­tions of tech­ni­cal fab­rics and yarns in which colours and light are re­flected to achieve rhythm, form and harmony. Cut­tingedge tech­no­log­i­cal ma­te­ri­als and tra­di­tional crafts­man­ship are com­bined in in­door items such as seats, so­fas, screens, rugs and fab­rics, but also in fur­ni­ture for the out­doors. Roberto Cav­alli, in his Roberto Cav­alli Home line, con­veys time­less lux­ury with a con­tem­po­rary touch; a trop­i­cal world im­bued with el­e­gance and chic glam­our, in which classic tones of beige and grey are mar­ried with vi­va­cious lime green. The brand’s ex­ten­sive of­fer in­cludes fur­ni­ture for liv­ing rooms, din­ing rooms and bed­rooms. Ex­otic mo­tifs, in­clud­ing one with ba­nana leaves, are com­bined with prints of lynx and ze­bra, while nat­u­ral fea­tures, such as the leaves of Mon­stera, the Swiss-cheese plant, be­come dec­o­ra­tive

el­e­ments for lamps, cof­fee tables and side­boards. Rubelli Casa, in­stead, ex­presses the con­tem­po­rary way of liv­ing through a movie-in­spired col­lec­tion de­signed by the ar­chi­tect Marco Piva, to­gether with vin­tage pieces cre­ated by Studio Rubelli. The fab­ric, the de­tail and the tai­lor­ing are all ev­i­dent. The leit­mo­tiv is the meet­ing of ma­te­ri­als and tex­tures, the use of mar­ble and me­tals, wood and lac­quer, and geo­met­ric forms and di­ag­o­nal lines to distin­guish the ob­jects. The cre­ations of Studio Rubelli bring back mem­o­ries of the fifties with a blend of dec­o­ra­tion and de­sign. For cladding and up­hol­stery ev­ery type of so­lu­tion is pos­si­ble, even the com­bi­na­tion of dif­fer­ent fab­rics on the same ar­ti­cle. An el­e­gant life­style is show­cased by Fendi Casa with new liv­ing con­cepts that balance tradition and in­no­va­tion: a con­tem­po­rary de­pic­tion, be­tween de­sign and fash­ion, that en­hances style and func­tion. The man­u­fac­tur­ing skill of the mai­son’s crafts­men is seen in the de­tails, in par­tic­u­lar in liv­ing room: in the fine leather in­serts ap­plied to the arms of the so­fas with square, neat lines up­hol­stered in vel­vet, in the union of ma­te­ri­als and mar­ble in the cof­fee tables,

and in the shape of the arm­chairs. A re­fined at­mos­phere that inspires re­lax­ation and brings back mem­o­ries of iconic films. Al­lure and con­tem­po­rary min­i­mal­ist lux­ury is con­veyed by the For­mi­talia Lux­ury Group, us­ing an abun­dance of shapes and a classic soul to achieve a mod­ern style that is em­bel­lished with fine ma­te­ri­als and ex­cep­tional fin­ishes, and ca­denced by Ital­ian crafts­man­ship. Satin-fin­ished me­tals, nat­u­ral stone, hides and spe­cial fab­rics distin­guish the clean de­sign, high­light­ing im­pec­ca­ble craft­man­ship. Franco Bian­chini also has an orig­i­nal vi­sion of lux­ury in the home and in fur­nish­ings, painstak­ingly tak­ing care of de­tails and handfin­ish­ing fea­tures of his so­phis­ti­cated items. To match the fur­ni­ture, he of­fers a line of rugs with geo­met­ric pat­terns. The wood used in the col­lec­tion is English wal­nut, with warm ch­est­nut tones, to­gether with ‘jewel’ el­e­ments and steel pro­files. The line is in­spired by the at­mos­phere of the thir­ties with black tones and sump­tu­ous fab­rics such as vel­vet, lam­i­nated tex­tiles and fine leathers. Lux­ury Liv­ing Group with Bent­ley Home has launched a new cou­ture kitchen, an ex­pres­sion of mod­ern fam­ily life, de­signed by the ar­chi­tect Carlo Colombo, which fea­tures fine ma­te­ri­als and fin­ishes that re­flect the lux­ury of the Bri­tish car firm. The de­sign is linear with a cen­tral is­land made of larch with a mar­ble top, for a dy­namic sur­face that cre­ates move­ment. Lastly, the so­phis­ti­cated bath­room is in­ter­preted by An­to­nio Lupi with a con­tem­po­rary style. It is em­bel­lished with el­e­ments with mono­lithic shapes made of Car­rara mar­ble, which gives the space an iden­tity, and with functional fea­tures for re­lax­ation, which are in­tro­duced with painstak­ing at­ten­tion to de­tail.
