Fendi Casa contemporary | HALL 11 – Stand B030
Fendi’s fashion design philosophy, its materials and colours, signature stitches and iconic embroidery are what inspire the Fendi Home Collection. The collection contains a large variety of home furnishings, decorative lighting and accessories, all designed and manufactured using the finest materials and exclusive finishes. The production is 90% handcrafted by Italian artisans using traditional techniques in Italy. At Maison et Objet will exhibit at HALL 8-Stand A062.
Trussardi Casa | HALL 11 – stand B026
Here a complete offering of the furniture and accessories unfolds, conceived for warm and richly stylish homes, inspired by the Milanese abodes and in keeping with the identity that the home collection has exuded since its debut. The collection is imbued with that refinement that is rooted in all-Italian taste and culture, spanning across three generations with their history, travel, past and future outlook.
Furniture for day and night, carpets and accessories are outlined with essential and modern geometric contours, remaining faithful to the nonchalant elegance that has contradistinguished the brand of the Greyhound for over 100 years. This design project curated by architect Carlo Colombo — the perfect blend of forms and harmonious matching of materials and colours — is characterised by an international elegance.
Peculiar and customised soft leather, Trussardi’s principal material, comes in various thicknesses, joining in with cotton, velvet and chenille fabrics.
Precious essences in wenge-dyed oak or eucalyptus, and in Canaletto walnut with solid oak details, are combined with elegant Emperador Dark and Carrara marbles. Metals forged in fluid architectures, with playful lines, in gunmetal finishes and brushed bronze. Materials whose common denominator is the preciousness of extraordinary handicraft works that bring back the manual methods that belong to a centennial heritage and that make unique, authentic and high level objects.
The colours are natural and warm, going from cognac to sand with the addition of cocoa, petroleum, Air Force blue and ecru shades with hints of cherry and green for the outdoor upholstery. Decorative themes in which even soft and powdery-effect shades of blue are thrown in, mixed with scales of light greys.
