Inside a spacious and ethereal space designed by Piero Lissoni, Living Divani has presented at the Salone del Mobile the new collections: more than 700 square meters on two floors are linked centrally by an astonishing spiral staircase which draws the attention like a vortex in a rarefied atmosphere, in which occasional spots of blue and red stand out in a universe of natural tones ranging from white to black.
For 2017, Living Divani offers new functional and expressive possibilities to the Rod family, designed by Piero Lissoni in 2012 and featuring a slender back and a light, airy shell, lined with inviting cushions embellished with quilted details and buttons. Launched last year, the sectional Rod System is now further expanded with a new curved model, ideal for creating new spatial solutions and original compositions.
The new Rod Bean consists of central and terminal elements, fluid, dynamic shapes which come together sinuously to make even more alluring spaces. The degrees of the curving and the dual depth of the terminal units, allow the new elements to be perfectly integrated with the existing ones, opening to new settings and combinations.
Among the novelties the Dumas armchair by Piero Lissoni – to complement the sofa – in two sizes: one more compact, the other with generous and inviting soft lines. With its bourgeoisie inspiration, Dumas features a comfortable seat supported by dark wood or burnished metal feet: an invitation to stop and enjoy its soft embrace. The low backrest, with its soft cushion, is connected to the gently curving armrest in a gesture of absolute simplicity that characterizes the style of the designer and the Company.
Furthermore, from the contributes to the project “Collezione Salone Satellite 20 anni” that this year celebrate its 20th anniversary, has been introduced in collection Day-Dream, a daybed design by mist-o the designer duo composed of Tommaso Nani and Noa Ikeuchi.
Contemporary reinterpretations of the well – known Hammock chair, design by Hans J.Wegner, Day-Dream consists of a structural part weaved with an hypoallergenic, recyclable, eco-friendly tubular (ready made by studio UNpizzo) which vary its intensity by ensuring the stability of the products; it is accompanied by two elegant seat cushions: a casual chic daybed that does not renounce to the details of style and comfort.
