The Aesthetics of Living
The home, a private nest that is both welcoming and intimate, expresses the sensibilities and taste of those inhabit it, who can choose between exceptional collections that reflect their own style. The aesthetics of the new Armani Casa Collection stem from a complex idea inspired by nature and the East, which transforms furnishings and accessories into assonances and similarities between cultures. This can be seen in the Onda chaise longue with its pure, clean lines and curves that resemble waves on the sea. Upholstered in woven leather and with a solid wood frame, it is a synthesis of all the themes of the collection: lightness and craftsmanship expressed by sophisticated and innovative materials such as resin and woven synthetics inspired by aerospace designs. These sophisticated details can be found in tables, chairs, bookcases and home accessories, including plates and glasses, screens and lamps. Rubelli, an historic company of exceptional craftsmanship working for years with Giorgio Armani for Armani Casa Exclusive Textiles by Rubelli, has created a collection of fabrics that showcases contemporaneity with pictorial touches and a conceptual use of colour, and uses unique, bright shades combined with silent neutral tones: preciousfabricswithdecorativedesigns,jacquards,embroideryandsophisticated motifs, with unquestionable beauty. Henge, atelier of excellence and research laboratory under the guidance of art director Massimo Castagna, creates daring shapes and finishes, developing pieces that, due to their resistance and authenticity, do not succumb to the passage of time and trends and become iconic pieces of furniture. The atelier creates cosy environments and differing moods, but with the unified aesthetic of the brand, with its bookcases, chaise longues, tables, chairs, sofas, chandeliers and a kitchen with an island made of two blocks of marble, fluid and elegant, all of which combine modern and classic features, old techniques and innovative ideas. Fendi Casa, with containers, secrets and stylistic details, animates its new collection with the signature features of Roman brand, transforming the home with the latest exclusive trends, both inside and out, with intense, glamorous and ironic modernity. A compendium of savoir-faire and hand-crafted quality for armchairs, sofas, coffee tables, mirrors, beds: the entire collection thrives on continuous and unexpected references to fashion and design. Baccarat interprets the most noble and refined processes used in the art of glassmaking to design the profile of its new home line, which features an armchair, pouf, chaise longue, coffee table with glass set on the top, like a jewel, and a bed that boasts a faceted front, reminiscent of a crystal. Unique, striking design defines the creations of Bentley Home. The 100 years of Bentley Motors are celebrated with a Home line. Three pieces: a desk, an armchair and a pouf pay homage to Crewe, the town in Cheshire in Great Britain, home to the Bentley factory. The line was designed by automotive designers and produced in a limited edition of 100, each with the Bentley Centenary logo. This exclusive capsule collection is embellished with gold-coloured metal finishes and sandblasted oak and gold dust. Every item in the Bugatti Home collection, designed by Carlo Colombo and Toan Nguyen, evokes the performance, technology, elegance and essential characteristics of Bugatti sports cars. Seats, beds, armchairs, tables, sofas and lamps form creative, hi-tech combinations, and are made of exclusive leather, stone, marble and soft, high-performance technical fabrics, that blend luxury with technology. Intuition, innovation and products, of yesterday and today, creating a dialogue between colour, material and form, distinguish the offering from Paola Lenti. In this new collection, creative thinking is expressed in products ranging from furniture and ceramic installations, metal and fabric to architectural decor. Pure forms and unique shades of colour tell a different story in every room. A concept of contemporary living, in which different elements coexist naturally in unexpected design relationships, attentive to the conscious use of resources and materials, sustainability and respect for the environment. A perfect synthesis of functionality and aesthetics.
