ZANOTTA DESIGN’S SUMMER NOVELTIES
From the genial idea of designer Sebastian Herkner, a collection of small tables has been created in which creativity has brought an unusual material combination: the Echino table – presented in four color possibility of smoky grey, light- blue, amber or blue – displays the customary legs in glass materials; instead, the top, satin-finished or mirrored, is made of steel.
“I designed for Zanotta a duo of side-tables using the strength of glass as a statement. ”
Graphium coffee tables have taken inspiration directly from nature: a sophisticated material like marble combines itself with symmetrical images from nature: the results are coffee tables in diverse colored variants that remind us the lightness of tropical butterflies with the solidity of the stone.
“Zanotta’s creations are intended for much more than collecting dust behind glass walls and velvet rope. Every piece, rather, is deliberately designed for active enjoyment in daily life”
The new Oliva armchair by Constance Guisset symbolizes comfort and relaxation with its open shell conformation and the enveloping curves; the light structure of the wooden legs – which pierce through the chair’s seat to increase the lightness – is well complemented by a strong bold fabric that hides padded polyurethane elements. The epitome of luxurious comfort.
With a clear reference to the Japanese futon, the Shiki sofa by Damian Williamson appears to display a modern twist: it appears as a mattress resting on an upholstered wood base but the different heights of the elements try to mimic a city skyline. The quilting and sartorial details only add to the elegant simplicity of the sofa.
