29/01/2015 - The functional and simple design of the Scandinavian countries meets the best of world design on the occasion of Stockholm Design Week. This year also the Company is a protagonist of the show with a display presenting with its retailer Planoform the latest offers along with its best sellers expressing the Lema home: a place where design tiptoes in and espouses a lifestyle that is far away from clamor and pretentiousness; a shelter, free from constraint, made up from pieces that create a lived-in atmosphere where the individual furniture pieces, alongside the modular series, furnish environments that embrace tranquility and promote sharing emotions.

It is the Lema total living, a style of innate elegance that defines itself in total custom-tailoring and in the perfect meeting between natural materials, like wood, the subtlety of the lacquers and the contemporaneity of the glass and metal, all of which enhance the linearity of the shapes and the usual consideration that characterizes the brand’s philosophy. In addition to the choice of the materials and of the finishes, particular attention is focused on the workmanship, designed to emphasize the close relationship between craftsmanship and technology that upholds the brand uniqueness.

The exhibition presents a wide living area characterized by a cozy corner composition of the Yard sofa by Francesco Rota upholstered in Grey fabric. An idea born from the desire to find a nexus with the systems, Lema core business, integrating both the padded part and that dedicated to storage and support, with countertops, shelves, small tables and containers that are used in different positions and configurations, creating different multifunctional compositions. The structure, made of metal, is supported by feet joined through triangular joints that support the cushions and the armrests, in addition to supporting the single elements. The generous dimensions of the seat and backrest give softness to the entire line of the sofa, while the materials used (polyurethane and down) guarantee comfort and the proper proportion between the rigid and the softer parts. The volume of the cushions, all parallelepiped in shape, reclines on a structural top out in the open, forming a harmonious contrast that becomes a stylish key feature. A system of tops in different heights and widths that interlock in the structure, managing to form a small suspended bookshelf; added to this is a collection of small tables/containers which, thanks to the open and closed volumes and different heights and equipment, function as a countertop or storage unit, both integrating into the system and free-standing.

Completing the setting are the Popsi lounge chairs by Ferruccio Laviani, with black lacquered structure and black hide seat/backrest and the Mr Zheng small table, both by Roberto Lazzeroni, available in three sizes, features a symmetrical bamboo-effect interlocking puzzle. The parts of the base framework – 10mm steel rods – are welded horizontally and vertically, forming a weave. The materiality of the wood top, here in mat green lacquer, contrasts the lightness of the chrome.

The Mirage mirror by Tokujin Yoshioka amplifies the space. It consists of several reflecting surfaces that can be mounted at different angles, thanks to a special coupling system; an innovative interpretation of a traditional piece of furnishing that is carried on with subtlety and lightheartedness, in which each module is finished with a polishing that reminds us of classic mirror manufacturing, combining modernity and tradition.

The company’s DNA, inextricably linked to the production of made-to-measure module systems both for living and sleeping areas, is expressed in this setting with Officinadesign Lema’s Selecta. Perfect example of Lema aptitude for design – the first Italian company to develop load-bearing support systems – thus, always the perfect partner with which the customization of the home can reach its fullest potential.

Celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2015, Selecta, bookshelf par excellence, was the first industrial product distinctly able to be customized, like a handcrafted creation. Today, one of the most versatile systems in terms of modularity, finishes and uses that unite the details of the craftsmanship of the wood to the modernization of the company industrial practices. Its key feature is maximum versatility both in terms of equipment as well as finishes: the modernity of the lacquered or the natural essences of the wood enhance the compositional structure and guarantee the uniqueness of the project that thus will become a one-of-a-kind piece.

Descrete elegance also for the dining-room starring the refinement of the Shade table by Francesco Rota. Its generous dimensions (350 cm in length) make it the perfect centerpiece. The statuesque pedestal is formed out of delicate treated metal plates, arranged asymmetrically crosswise, in hot-stamped bronze; it is the interplay of lights and shadows of the metal grill which gives it its name. The tabletop, here in “Argilla” finish, but also available in wood, completes the look. Coordinated with the table are the Bai Lu chairs, by Neri&Hu, with black leather seat: the forms are reminiscent of classical Far Eastern chairs; a structure with a round section supports a curved top that creates a soft contour in the seat and the backrest. The name means “white dew” and refers to when the item was designed during the second week of September on the Chinese calendar. Further evidence of how the mix of the different items offered in the catalog is one of the company’s winning features can be found in an asset deriving from the coherence of the collections built in a way so as to create settings connected by a common mood.

The deep experience in modular systems for the bedroom is expressed in the exhibition space through Armadio al Centimetro by Officinadesign Lema, the modular system that offers absolute freedom in construction thanks to the wide array of available modules and of the possibility to adapt them according to the desired dimensions: in height, length and depth. The technical part of the system is offered in many variations according to the selected door; this way, the Lema Armadio al Centimetro is transformed into an infinite amount of combinations of wardrobes, each one with its own style and its own taste. In Stockholm Lema presents Aria and Naica.
Aria by David Lopez Quincoces: a thin anodized aluminum frame with an extra-light glass panel inside, while enlightening the wardrobe interior with natural light. The light design is perfectly matched with technical innovations as the door hinges are invisible not to change the door pure lines.

Naica by Cairoli e Donzelli in heat-treated oak with an internal finish in “Larice Moka.” A particular pulley system on the entire length of the door becomes a handle that can open the nearby door, which, on the other hand, remains smooth. The grooves thus form a continuous and harmonious movement along the entire wall.

In the middle, the Felix armchair by Roberto Lazzeroni and the Fence bench by Christophe Pillet.
Thanks to its contained dimensions and discreet character, Felix – upholstered here in pale blue fabric – finds its ideal placing in the sleeping area. The curved backrest is an outright shell of relaxation that encloses the gigantic seat cushion. Seams and stitches reveal and highlight the sensual and delicate contours.

Perfect for the bedroom or the living area as well, Fence is designed to be used both as a seat and as small table. Its light and sophisticated design, matching the wireframe continuous band in treated metal rods with the solid Canaletto walnut slats of the top, defines its strong character.
