02/05/2019 - New stories, new projects, and new encounters. Lemabroadens its Home collection with new products that tell the industrial and creative side of the Lema story. The new range stems from collaborations with Piero Lissoni, David Lopez Quincoces, Chiara Andreatti, Gordon Guillaumier, Francesco Rota, Leonardo Dainelli and Andrea Mancuso.
Central to the new launches is the day system, LT40, designed by David Lopez Quincoces. ‘With LT40 we’ve created a new collection that might seem simple, but it is actually very complex and wide-ranging, able to fit into a living or a bedroom area’, the designer explains. ‘LT40 works perfectly in articulate compositions, but it can also shine as a single element. LT40 is a system to discover bit by bit’.
LT40 stems from a lengthy conceptual research and a careful industrial development. A highly customizable articulated system of containers and wall elements designed in four possible configurations: freestanding, wall, suspended, or boiserie. The latter is presented in matt lacquer and a W Line wooden version, with three-dimensional ribbed graphics obtained by a complex hand-worked process.
These four families, mixed freely together, characterize the architecture together with a series of additional elements which complete the LT40 design: double-faced containers, benches and elements designed to house multi-media apparatus; shelves and paneling with structural frames in aluminum, adjustable and designed for wall mounting; trays and tops in marble or stone; container boxes in wood or glass and built-in LED lamp systems.
The system is enhanced by the LT_FRAME containers, with a strong graphic and chromatic impact, in six predefined types of configuration. Six cornices in two-dimensional types enclose the ‘tesserae of a mosaic’ made up of color, wood and transparencies, framed in a perfect equilibrium of rigorous, subtle forms. These are designed for hanging on the wall and supplemented by a discreet LED light which emphasizes the internal perimeter.
The customization of LT40 is reflected also in the wide range of finishes available for all the elements of the system: wood, lacquered, glasses, clays, natural and reconstructed marbles. The structure is in Grey velvet, an innovative ultra-matt material, velvety to the touch yet high-strength.
Fine-tuning of materials, lines and pure volumes are key for the console ELLA, a piece of furniture that has a calibrated balance at its soul. This design is in perfect harmony with the other furnishing items designed by the Spanish designer for Lema. The concept of Ella is a traditional furnishing item, which develops a strong contemporary personality because of the contrast between the lightness of the structure in bronze metal that appears to be floating and the solidity of the drawer in heat-treated oak. A new passe-partout that can be purchased as a stand-alone piece or together with other elements, Ella can insert itself in every style and space.
