Why Adding the Right Designers for Licensing Makes Sense: Living Divani
Living Divani renews the partnership with the designer Massimo Mariani, born in Florence: graduated from the Faculty of Architecture in Genoa, he enjoyed numerous different experiences with prestigious international studios before setting up his own freelance design business in London in 1998. His Notes table, combining a simple round top in cement, wood or glass with a rigid metallic structure, is now available also with a blue coloured glass top. Three slender legs, connected through metallic strips placed at different heights, seem to chase each other. A graphical play that marks the rhythm of the table, offering a different perspective each time.
Ceiba Screen – design Luis Arrivillaga
Ceiba Screen, the new screen from the designer Luis Arrivillaga inspired by the coat hanger launched last year, features pure white candid linen canvas adorning the wooden frames, available in natural or dark-dyed ash wood, outlining an area beyond reach, where to hide. A game of superimpositions, “now you see it, now you don’t”, a trompe-l’oeil, leaving room to shadows and imagination to run free: a pure yet sensual mood, with visible hems inspired by nightwear and buttons to embellish them or in the woven version recovering the ancient techniques of Cantù lace.
Grek Box – design Gabriele and Oscar Buratti
Dictated by the rigor of slender aluminum sheet, like the table launched last year, Grek Box by brothers Gabriele and Oscar Buratti is a storage unit which can be wall-mounted or floor standing, whereby create various combinations with a single basic unit, either placed side by side, overlapped, at an angle or two-faced. The balance of full and empty spaces, results in compartments of different heights to house books and objects of various sizes. A storage unit with a geometrical layered effect, whose use can be personalized for ever-new decor possibilities.
Day-Dream – design mist-o
From the contribution to the project “Collezione Salone Satellite 20 anni”, that this year celebrate its 20th anniversary with a special edition of products, designed by international talents of design whose career started right from Salone Satellite, has been introduced in collection Day-Dream, a daybed design by mist-o the Italian-Japanese designer duo composed of Tommaso Nani and Noa Ikeuchi. Contemporary reinterpretation of the well–known Hammock chair, design by Hans J. Wegner, Day-Dream consists of a structural part weaved with Ready Made UNpizzo which vary its intensity by ensuring the stability of the products; it is accompanied by two elegant seat cushions: a casual chic daybed that does not renounce to the details of style and comfort.
Mini Tombolo – Ready Made UNpizzo
Following the experience of Tombolo, mini Tombolo enters the collection, a smaller version with all the characteristics of the original product, weaved by Bettina Colombo and Agnese Selva from Ready Made UNpizzo. Inspired by the ancient crochet technique of Cantù, this lace of natural tones recaptures the traditional stitching in a contemporary style for Living Divani, to create new patterns and designs through an extra-large bobbin and decidedly thicker treads.
Flow – design Shibuleru
The Flow rocking chair is created thanks to the collaboration with Shibuleru, the US based design studio founded by Lukas Scherrer, perfect solution under the sun of the Californian beaches or on a terrace in Milan. The ultra-light structure in gunmetal-painted steel makes a hatching effect in the air, while the covering in fabric, leather or weaved with Ready Made UNpizzo an hypoallergenic, recyclable, eco-friendly tubular receives the body and accompanies your relaxation as you vanish into the sunshine, or into a cloud of thought, observing the world from new angles.
