19/11/2019 - From 20th to 22nd November Living Divani
goes to one of the most Important China’s financial hubs to take part in the fourth edition of Salone del Mobile.Milano Shanghai
. “Living Divani closes an intense year, marked by the celebrations of its 50th anniversary and 30 years of collaboration with Piero Lissoni as Art Director, while focusing on China where Italian style and artisanal heritage have a huge appeal. This year, in addition to a constantly expanding collection, we created the Living Divani 50+30 Book that tells our story in a graphic, playful and emotional way
” – says Carola Bestetti, Head of Marketing and Communication at Living Divani. “To celebrate the double anniversary, we presented “The Uncollected Collection”, a 10-pieces limited edition collection signed by Piero Lissoni, for those who looks for objects with a strong identity, between art and design
The stand, resulting from the collaboration with the Shanghai retailer H.N.Lin, is conceived as a path among Living Divani’s iconic pieces and latest novelties.
At the entrance, visitors are welcomed by a dining room – also suitable as an office – dominated by the free and sensual curves of Brasilia
table by the Spanish designer David Lopez Quincoces with 'cement effect” painted legs and top in Stone Oak®, combined with Rivulet chairs by the Asiatic duo Junpei&Iori Tamaki, where the wooden structure is embellished by a decorative weave in natural hide that becomes its characterizing element. Clean and simple intersecting lines that balance the visual impact of the whole are the defining characteristics of Sailor
, by David Lopez Quincoces, a sort of wall-sculpture, where the airy pace of the vertical posts, with hexagonal section, contrasts with the tighter rhythm of the slender shelves, with top in Stone Oak® and lower part black lacquered. With retrò style references, the mobile bar Aero B
by Shibuleru – the design studio founded by Swiss designer Lukas Scherrer – conceals a container through shutter doors that slide along the perimeter, offering a dynamic alternation of full and empty spaces.
The living area features the new Greene
upholstered family by David Lopez Quincoces, a casual and relaxed proposal restating once again the attention toward every small detail. The fixed-measure sofa emphasises the contrast between the 'cuoietto' hide structure and the soft fabric cushions, while the leather armchair boasts a total look that stands out for its softness and sophistication. Vizio
, the new glass holder designed by Leonardo Talarico which accompanies the sofa, is summed up in two lines that cut through the air, referring to a feeling of dynamism and, at the same time, incorporeal balance: a gesture that becomes real and acquires three-dimensionality in the shape of the steel rod. The particular of the armrest and back cushions set between structure and seat, and the sculptural foot, classic and hi-tech at the same time, distinguish the Floyd-Hi sofa
by Piero Lissoni, shown upholstered in the new Seta leather and accompanied by Pebble Low Table
, designed by Lanzavecchia + Wai, with organic shapes, inspired by stones, and Flap
, by Studio Klass, with creamy white lacquered sides and top in walnut in different shapes, that open up revealing functional containers inside. The precious free standing storage Islands
designed by the American designer Stephen Burks, with charcoal dyed oak top, is accessible on all sides thanks to the perimeter of wooden slats mounted with apparent randomness that, thanks to the central pivot, can turn on themselves, now creating a compact presence, now an airy element, for different interpretations of the same product, always conveying a taste of refined craftsmanship. The elimination of the superfluous distinguishes the Materica
table lamp, a sculpture object designed by Leonardo Talarico that captures a fleeting intuition, the result of free expression. A mildly shaped steel tube ends with a light bulb, emphasizing the line of the curve and enhancing the refined simplicity of the whole.
The emblem of Living Divani’s pure shapes Extrasoft
, the visual icon of the brand signed by Piero Lissoni and dated 2008, is still a bestseller in both its indoor and outdoor versions. Extrasoft is a modular sofa with a casual look and a soft, more yielding and malleable comfort. Cosy and restful seats upholstered in anthrax grey fabric which can be placed next to each other in a geometrical configuration, but with irregular contours, surrounded by “C” shaped Tethys
satellite tables, by Gabriele and Oscar Buratti, with both Black Marquinia marble top and tray.
For the night-time area, the new Floyd-Hi Bed
by Piero Lissoni is an invitation to relax thanks to Its large and soft cushions laying on the lowered headboard, creating a pleasant play of heights, juxtapositions and textures, in the sign of three-dimensionality and pureness of lines. It is accompanied by Era
bedside table by David Lopez Quincoces with bi-materical legs, walnut top and cream white lacquered sides, an example of quality of materials and fine craftsmanship. The setting includes the new table-lamp Light with a table
, by the designer Keiji Takeuchi. The slender and graphic silhouette of this multifunctional sculpture, is the result of a skilful construction: a base to provide stability, a metal tube that curves and ends in a source of light and a table connected to it; a perfect light spot next to a bed or a sofa, to emphasize its lines. A new inspiring inhabitant of the 'Living Divani world'. Designed to reclaim some time for yourself, the Pebble
writing desk/ vanity by Studio Lanzavecchia + Wai is inspired by the materiality and organic form of the stones and amazes for the sophisticated details, such as the irregular mirror, the suspended drawer and the top in Black Marquinia marble, alongside the retrò-style of Nina
stool by David Lopez Quincoces, upholstered in fabric and outlined by an elegant grosgrain. Lastly, the Aero V
valet stand by Shibuleru with its calibrated simplicity that reveals a sophisticated work of synthesis, for a multifunctional item that gives precise style and functionality to the entrance and waiting areas.
The setting is enriched by details such as the pieces of the Carpet Collection and Sin Titulo Collection, both designed by Harry Paul, and the objects belonging to the Styling Project, curated by Elisa Ossino Studio.
