Living Divani decided to make a unique initiative for its 50th anniversary during Milan Design Week: with “The Uncollected Collection”, they’ve surprised many people during that week not only by setting up a maze of mirrors at the historical spaces of Palazzo Crivelli, but also by presenting a new set of pieces made by Piero Lissoni that were unveiled for the first time ever at Via Pontaccio 12 in Milan.
The showcase by Living Divani was an exhibition composed of spectacular reflections, an astonishing play of shadows and lighting effects that highlighted the pieces on display from different angles. The whole concept was intended to pass as a combination of art and design. This was the perfect celebration of both Living Divani’s 50th anniversary, and also for the 30th anniversary of Piero Lissoni’s post as Art Director of the brand.
Aside from some whole new pieces that were presented on this lovely historical place in Milan city, visitors were also able to take a good look at a couple of other familiar furniture pieces by Living Divani such as the Family Chair by Junya Ishigami (2010), the Bubble Rock sofa (2005), the PVC Frog armchair, the rocking chair Flow by Shibuleru (2017), among other marking pieces.
An example of a piece of furniture which was presented for the first time was the Rivulet chair, by Junpei and Iori Tamaki. There were also many more examples of exclusive presentations of many products by Living Divani, among them the 01 chaise longue, the tiny 02 poltrona, and the sculptural-looking 03 tavolino, which the guests could see in a tour throughout the inside and outside of Milan’s wonderful Palazzo Crivelli.
All of these products are the result of the combined efforts of Piero Lissoni, Living Divani’s team as well as the imaginations and experiences of many renowned designers. This brand’s products are still regarded as being perfect examples of products that privilege geometrical, curvy or essential shapes. They come off as a reflection of the variety of styles proposed in the past 30 years under Lissoni’s wing.
