Top 20 from Salone Del Mobile 2014, Part II

Wednesday, May 21st, 2014

Another year of innovative and unexpected design and color choices, Design Bureau rounds out this year’s top picks from the world’s reigning furniture fair (part 2/2).

Artek presents Rival by Konstantin Grcic

Designed for those who work from home, Rival by Konstantin Grcic reflects Artek’s roots in its mix of solid birch legs, laminated birch arms and back, and circular geometry of the seat. Complimented with technical finesse, Rival transforms the ordinary task chair into a into a modern, multifunctional statement piece ideal for contemporary living.

Fendi Casa presents Hampton by Toan Nguyen

Combining quality and originality, Fendi Casa infuses a modern twist into traditional furniture in the Hampton sofa by Toan Nguyen. Linear and urban with minimal armrests set at the same height as the seat with broad cushions, the Hampton stars in its environment. Nguyen’s design expresses the elegant equilibrium expected of Fendi Casa.

Gaggenau presents the 400 series modular refrigeration

Design, function and convenience, Gaggenau’s fully integrated 400 series modular refrigeration can be combined to create stylish bespoke refrigeration walls. Stainless steel interiors with LED lighting and an optimal use of space offer all the benefits of modern storage technology. Chilled wine never looked so good.

Gessi presents Cono

Maintaining a commitment to creative experimentation and innovation, Cono Collection by Gessi mixes organic and geometric designs to create a bathroom environment ideal for relaxation. Evoking the power of basic forms, Cono transforms everyday objects, such as the bathroom facet, into works of sculptural art. Take the bathroom from boring to a stylish spa with Cono- just add water!

Kartell presents Jellies by Patricia Urquiola

Jellies is a three-dimensional coloured world for the table. Plates “not plates”, glasses and pitchers with bubbles. The touch and sight bring cut crystal to mind. Generous decorations. They live outdoors and play with light refractions. They’re not afraid of rain or tumbles. They live equally well inside with all the same or with a mix of colours.”  Explains Patricia Urquiola of her line of flatware and glassware for Kartell. Anyone for one fancy picnic? We’ll bring Jellies.

MUUTO presents The New Soft Blocks Sofa by Petter Skogstad

Playing with conventional proportions and challenging straight, continuous lines, Petter Skogstad explores the beauty of asymmetry in Soft Blocks sofa for MUUTO. Welcoming sitters in the most friendly (read: comfortable) of ways, Soft Blocks consists of a 3-seater, a 2-seater and a pouf. Nap time!

Poliform presents Bristol by Jean-Marie Massaud

Coherent modular comfort = Bristol by Jean-Marie Massaud for Poliform. Bristol explores a wide range of aesthetical approaches through wraparound double backrest and thin armrests, which allow for highly original living room layouts.

Poltrona Frau presents Albero bookcase designed by Gianfranco Frattini

Poltrona Frau, in a faithful re-edition of a little-known icon, reproduces the Albero bookcase by Gianfranco Frattini. A visionary object, the Albero bookcase explores the boundaries between mechanics and nature- made entirely of wood with adjustable rack, pinions, and piston-shelves. Books never looked better.

Snaidero presents OLA 25

Marking 25 years of collaboration, Edi Snaidero and Paolo Pininfarina present a “Limited Edition” of the iconic OLA 25 model. Dedicated to customers who love the look of a tailored style kitchen, OLA 25 serves as an expression of a homeowner’s personality and relationship with their domain. Available in a whooping 84 colors in a lacquer finish, OLA 25 infuses the kitchen with style and sass.

Vitra presents the Barber & Osgerby Collection

Characterized by appropriateness and precision, Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby designs are gentle in gesture and always accessible. Yet, they remain unobtrusive, exuding freshness in their bold, straightforward, and linear shapes. Case in point- the Mariposa sofa for Vitra. Radiating an inviting aura of spacious comfort, Mariposa hosts an ingenious (hidden) adjustment mechanism that makes for maximum flexibility. Lean back, lean back, relax and unwind.

And done! Plenty to keep us occupied (and seated) from now till next year’s Salone. Can’t imagine what these design innovators present next.
