Gold Reflections and Incisive Black Marks
09/05/2019 - Gandiablasco explore new materials and chromatic effects for its 2019 collection. If aluminum and white nuances had so far marked the brand’s identity, Solanas and DNA Teak introduce new combinations and compositional possibilities. The ultra-resistant Dekton surfaces by Cosentino alternate with the luminous metallic reflections of the Gold finish. Teak’s warmth, on the other hand, is highlighted by the intensity of a total black look. The founder, José A. Gandía-Blasco, and the new Creative Director, Daniel Germani, met up with us to talk about the latest novelties.



New furniture pieces for the Solanas collection
A sideboard, a high-backed armchair, two table designs with different legs, a chair and a mirror all feature in the extended SOLANAS collection, designed by Daniel Germani.
The qualities that define SOLANAS, elegance and resistance, refinement and durability, also characterize these new pieces. The collection continues to cultivate the curved lines and rounded forms of all its elements, expressing a sensation of fluidity, and forming an overall coherence within the range. Solanas

This line of outdoor furniture represents a tribute to Solanas, a beach located in Uruguay, where Daniel Germani used to spend his Summers.‎ Germani channeled this loving approach to life in his new collection by using softer forms in the design with rounded edges, pieces that embrace you, with which to create intimate spaces.‎

SOLANAS marks a milestone in the history of GANDIABLASCO, being the firm’s first collaboration with Dekton® by Cosentin the first time the powder-coated aluminum profile that characterizes GANDIABLASCO was combined with the ultra-resistant Dekton® by Cosentino surfaces. The material is low maintenance and guarantees long-lasting durability. Solanas

The furniture elements are available in the distinctive finishes of the Cosentino patented material, originally included in SOLANAS, as well as the new color Gold, an innovative metallic tone for the outdoor collections. Unexpected reflective qualities shine through when hit directly by sun light, creating different nuances that emerge over the course of the day. The aluminum structures of the collection are also available in different tones of grey, blue, green and orange.

DNA Teak: The warmth of wood and the intensity of black
The outdoor furniture brand that has made Mediterranean white its insignia color presents the DNA TEAK collection in black. ‘White has always been the color most associated with GANDIABLASCO and the architecture of the Mediterranean. We decided to widen the range of finishes – black is as sober, elegant and timeless as white, as well as being one of my favorites’, explains José A. Gandía-Blasco. DNA Teak

With this step, the GANDIABLASCO brand continues its journey and evolves in line with its core essence. DNA TEAK is the warmest of the GANDIABLASCO collections. The design of all the pieces is based on a construction system that combines the warmth of teak timber slats with aluminum profiles; the GANDIABLASCO material of choice. Tradition and innovation come together taking a step forwards with a collection that exists beyond the merely fashionable or trendy.

The clean lines of DNA TEAK crate a playful pattern of light and shade projected by the teak slats referencing the evocative Mediterranean roller shutter, typically used for windows. At the same time the collection is rooted in Japanese culture with its emphasis on the importance of wood and highlighting the balance of shadow and light. Two cultures that may seem far apart geographically, but share a deep respect for traditional techniques, and the essence expressed through pure, clean lines. According to José Gandía-Blasco’s vision, ‘black is a classic color that is free from fashion and trends’ and works in exteriors by either blending in or contrasting with its settings. The same happens with white when combined with teak timber. DNA Teak

If the color white blends in with the vernacular architecture of the Mediterranean and its sun light, black provides a contrast to the vegetation, enhancing the deep blue of the water and the sky as well as complementing the tones of the earth and the sand. With this new collection, DNA widens its possibilities for the creation of elegant and impacting exteriors for residential terraces or larger contract projects.
