Porro is one of the top brands which have recently come up with a couple of new ideas for decoration. In cooperation with prestige designer Piero Lissoni, designer and art director of the brand since 1987, the brand managed to fuse two complementary views: that of the tailor and the designer.
For this set of products Porro has decided to innovate by creating a bridge between the two worlds: industrial and artisan. This was accomplished through the combination of rationality and imagination, technological avant-garde and manual finishing, with Piero Lissoni as a helping design guide.
Piero Lissoni decided to imagine the 2019 Porro home in an open way and present this new concept for iSaloni 2019. In his mind, the walls disappear and the furnishings become architecture, as we can see from the System bookcases. These objects allow the owners a lot more flexibility when it comes to leaving an empty space that is almost contemplative.
There’s also the Modern container system presenting itself as a good example of how elegance can definitely rhyme with looseness. This new concept by Porro has achieved solutions that are different and personal each time and manage to pass as one among many examples of Piero Lissoni’s talent and take on more than one design item of furniture.
Another debut from Porro comes from the small Lullaby lounge chair which has a unique and soothing design that evokes the act of cradling a baby. Other relevant details are its small supporting foot in champagne painted metal, as well as its ash solid structure and the covering in soft light blue fabric.
We can also point to a couple of new and relevant furniture products such as the Boutique Maast, the Makura Bed, the Ferro table, and the Curry couch, all of whom have the signature and unique touch of Piero Lissoni that he manages to give to more than one of his furniture design projects.
There are many existing products that have suffered a transformation among them, the new oval version of the Jeff table by Gabriele and Oscar Buratti, the larger size of the Kite Sofa couch by GamFratesi as well as the Frank chair by Piero Lissoni. All of these bestsellers have been reimagined and readopted with a couple of new interesting features.
