Tactility and structural use of colours characterise the first living room, where the Galileo table in black stained ash with an oval top supported by 4 thick tapered legs, is matched with Neve chairs in black stained ash, with rigorous yet soft lines. On the wall in heat treated oak, a suspended Modern sideboard playing with open units with a rosso cina and blu reale lacquered back panels and closed volumes in the new woods of the Porro dining room collection, ranging from warm and blonde honey shades of heat treated elm to the striped and reddish shades of heat treated hemlock up to the darker brown colours of heat treated oak.
In the second Porro dining room collection, the Spindle chair in black leather, the real protagonist is the new Ellipse Table, born from the encounter between two ellipses balanced on each other. Original and functional for the living, it is at the same time a table to be used outside, standing out for its sculpture proportions and character, a unique versatile item for indoor and outdoor as well. To hold dishes and glasses without losing character the new Ipercolore sideboards are studied, raised on metal feet, playing with a minimal and clean design of the fronts and interiors in black stained hemlock and the lively colours of the red-lacquered tops and sides. The Mast walk-in closet turns into a container / bookcase for the living room thanks to its light black metal structure and black stained hemlock protruding shelves, showing an unexpected side and its double personality.
In the third Porro dining room collection, enclosed by a marvelous two-sided System bookcase in teak, two high Tiller sideboards show palissandro santos doors opening one on the other thanks to the special hinge, pleasantly chanting the wall design. The Ipe table stands out with a black back-painted glass top and black painted U-shaped iron legs: a clean and industrial silhouette, softened by the Neve chairs in natural ash.
