12/01/2018 - Again this year, on the occasion of the Imm, Lema
’s space at Design Post
renovates its set up presenting the latest proposals by the Lema Casa. The relaxed and bright atmosphere of this fascinating exhibition space, successful example of architectural restoration, point of reference in the city not only of the furnishing sector, represents the ideal frame where to describe the design language of the brand, among the main players of the Made in Italy.
Designed by Piero Lissoni, the new set-up presents the newest proposals alongside some of the brand’s best-sellers to perfectly describe the spirit of the Lema’s home: refuge of the soul, space thought like a tailor-made dress free of constraints, devoted to utmost emotional comfort.
Comfort is the common thread, the harmony of slow living: cosiness and conviviality, warmth and relax are the key words. Finishes underline the character of a home which finds its essence in resting and sharing the most informal moments. Soft tones create relaxing spaces while bright colours are tailored towards social areas.
At the heart of exhibition space, the wide living space is furnished Neil
sofa by Francesco Rota. Refined and original, Neil is a fresh new proposal with a strong appeal for those in search of more informal relaxation or the luxury of shared moments. This modular sofa is the perfect synthesis of made-to-measure comfort. It is distinguished by its low seat, its generous shape and squared back and arms which, slightly inclined outwards, enhance the feeling of comfort and well-being. The whole system rotates around a platform which can accommodate the sofa back and arms at two different heights.
lounge chair by Roberto Lazzeroni covered in velvet and the Oydo coffee tables again by Rota, with a light and essential design, are distinguished by their great versatility. Proposed in two types, one with a round top and another lower one with a rectangular top, personalise any room in the house, from the living area to the bedrooms, thanks to the many finishes available: heat-treated oak, clay, Grey stone, gloss or matt lacquer, and elegant Portoro marble with its strong expressive note. In Cologne, they are presented in heat-treated oak and Portoro marble versions. In front of them, Long Island
unit by Christophe Pillet. To the wall, Mirage mirrors by Tokujin Yoshioka create more depth to the room.
Behind the living, an area dedicated to night systems presents Hangar
walk-in closets designed by Piero Lissoni - in grey larch finish - is designed to store everyday objects, rationalising the space but also implementing any planning idea. Every object is neat and free at the same time: an intelligent, functional system structured on the needs of who inhabits it. A charming product thanks to the warmth of the wood and lightness of the glass and its reflexes.
Armadio al Centimetro DANDY
On the opposite wall, Armadio al Centimetro
, project that offers utmost modularity, the stilish touch of the brand since its origin. Modular custom-system that in addition to the guarantee of an industrial production, it combines attention to details typical of an accurate handicraft culture. A product in constant development, focused on utmost flexibility: first of all in terms of sizes, but also in terms of models, materials, components, finishes, accessories and equipment. The design develops around basic modules that can be adapted in height, width and depth, consisting of structures and panels: hinged, folding, sliding and aligned.
Another relevant news presented for the first time in Cologne is the LEMA Air Cleaning System. The innovative and patented system through which Lema revolutionises the concept of the wardrobe and for the first time, making it play an active role in sanitizing clothing and footwear. The result of more than a year of research and a world exclusive, the LEMA Air Cleaning System, positioned discreetly at the top of the wardrobe, uses nanotechnology and a special UV lamp to generate a photochemical reaction that naturally destroys pollutants, bacteria and mold, purifying the inside of the wardrobe and eliminating more than 90% of bad odours emanating from the stored clothing and footwear.
Alongside the wardrobes, to describe the company DNA and to enrich the different sets, the attested modular systems for the day area Selecta
. Selecta introduces to the left exhibition ambience where Graceland
by Christophe Pillet are the protagonists matched with refined Bea
dining chairs by Roberto Lazzeroni – and Cases
containers by Francesco Rota.
Various styles with vintage touches for Graceland round table that plays on neat and rational shapes that make it suitable for any kind of home but also for contract spaces. The metal structure of strong personality contrasts the lightness of the matt lacquered thin top or in the sophisticated Clay finish.
Cases, new concept of versatile, multifunctional sideboard was born thanks to Rota’s reflections on the containing theme. Perfect to be positioned along a wall or in the centre of a room, a rigorous piece of furniture, characterised by a light appeal thanks to the play of solids and voids given by the use of different thickness and different heights. The body, which lay on titanium-coloured legs that nod to the 60s, is available in two sizes and can hold three or four container elements respectively, each with its own specific function: sideboard, set of drawers, display cabinet, and bar cabinet.
To complete the set, Mr.Zheng
coffee table by Roberto Lazzeroni and Notch
poufs by Johan Lindstén influenced by the charm of modern nomadism.
Aside, under the luminous windows, a discreet area - defined by another Selecta
made-to-measure composition - presents an elegant asymmetric dormeuse Eydo
by Francesco Rota, matching with Sign
coffee table by Studio Kairos. Distinguished by an architectural style and fluidity, it invites to relax as inferred from the name of Greek origin. It consists of a suspended structure in metal lacquered bronze and the unique seat and backrest volume that, despite recalling the lightness of a wing thanks to its reduced thickness, it envelopes and welcomes the body, offering great comfort. The stitching and leather upholstery embellish the design.
Continuing along the exhibition path, on the opposite side of the stand, there is a second dining area and a new living area. Undisputed protagonist is the minimalist discretion of Memo
table by Piero Lissoni, here presented with the heat-treated oak top and brushed steel base, matching with Bai Lu
elegant chairs by Neri&Hu, an evergreen for Lema. To the wall two Cases containers by Rota.
Finally, for the living room we present the Mustique
sofa by Gordon Guillaumier, in brown leather, it is wide yet elegant alongside being essential and formal, its name refers to an island in the grenadines influenced by the idea of a live and happy place where you are destined to relax.
Together, the elegant and cozy Lady Jane
bergère by Christophe Pillet with neat lines that recall the shapes of 50s, confirms its vocation for the office world in addition to the house, thanks to a new mechanism that allows the seat to rotate 360 °. To accompany, the namesake pouf with padded metal frame bronze, a proposal characterised by a multi-faceted soul, to enjoy the most relaxing moments.

A continuous gentle line connects it to the bed frame, resulting in a design of great elegance suitable for every home. Although the bed has a classical design, it will grace any modern environment.
