's continuous research on materials and colors focuses on the thousand shades of red. Carminio, Antico and Cina red are the finishes chosen for the systems and products in the collection: result of manual or technological processing, they release the sophisticated taste and the incredible savoir-faire of the brand.
Containers Offshore, design Piero Lissoni
Craftsmanship is not forgotten by the Offshore series of containers by Piero Lissoni with floating colors, evoking abstract painting and unleashing the vintage flavor of oriental furniture. Made of ash wood with 45° shelves, the result of a careful manufacturing process, these sideboards are available with open pore paiting in the colours of Porro collection and in the new special frassino carminio finish, obtained through repeated manual steps thanks to which the grain, first darkened with black tones, surfaces in a fascinating dark red color. The opening mechanism is also unusual, thanks to an inset handle, an entirely metal-plated hole which rediscovers tactile sensations.
Compositions Modern Beat, design Piero Lissoni + Porro Research Centre
Suspended on a Left feet, the Modern Beat compositions play with the interchange of full and empty spaces between two rosso antico painted metal tops, featuring a series of avorio lacquered containers and metal boxes in Iron finish. This small family of sideboards is available in 3 different sizes and can be customized in the mix of finishes.
Composition Load-it, design Wolfgang Tolk
Load-it is the iconic bookcase designed by Wolfgang Tolk in 1995, and still a Porro bestseller: a versatile book shelving system that can fulfill different daily functions. It is here proposed in a pure composition with thin L shelves in rosso antico finishing, chosen also for the wall panels creating a visual suspended bridge.
Bookcase Gap, design Carlo Tamborini
The wall unit bookcase Gap, designed by Carlo Tamborrini, is an object with a sculptural vocation. It consists of a backdrop, thin shelves and an outer metal frame that generates a strong aesthetic sign that acts as a book-end as well as a light source, thanks to the built-in LED strip that runs through its perimeter. This vertically developed bookcase is a precious and versatile solution thanks to its compact size that spectacularly lights up and furnishes any space in the house. Two precious metal finishes are available: rosso cina and grigio piombo. The intensity of the LED light can be adjusted via a smartphone app.
The Metallico table is characterized by the lightness of its top and legs, made of a 12 mm-thick solid aluminium sheet. Its unique finishing is obtained by a high thickness catalysed painting, followed by stages of polishing and waxing by hand. The top is offered also in 16 woods of Porro’s collection. It is available in rectangular and square versions, in fixed or customizable dimensions.
Low table Ferro, design Piero Lissoni
Refined details and a strong visual identity characterize Ferro, the table favouring a curved sinuous line, with rounded edges and wide-ranging connections. Made of soldered curved sheet metal in various suggestive finishings, it is also available in low version, H. 400mm, in fixed or customizable dimensions, and in the outdoor version.
Modern + Load-it
Composition Modern + Load-it, design Piero Lissoni + Wolfgang Tolk
In the new Porro 2019 scenarios, the walls disappear and the furnishings become architecture, surprising for the impeccable lines, the unusual mix of functions and materials and the new space reserved to color, like is the Modern + Load-it double height composition, framing a full-length window. The Modern base and suspended top in eucalyptus are combined with the upper Load-It bookcase with steel shelves and wall panels, where a Modern hanging element with rosso cina lacquered drop-leaf door and 4 vitrines, equipped with enlightened transparent shelves and rosso cina backs, are inserted. A harmonious whole where furniture and architecture fuse together to design and complete the space.
