ATEM SOFA BY MARCO LAVIT NICORA

SOFA1

Atem is a tribute to transparency. The modular structure, essential and geometric in every detail, leaves no room for superfluous. Each material is associated with a compositional element suggested by its features. The steel mesh, almost impalpable, lays bare the nature of the object, creating a veiled playful transparency.

Patricia Urquiola was born in Oviedo (Spain) in 1961. She lives and works in Milan. She attended the University of Architecture at Madrid Polytechnic as well as Milan Polytechnic, where she graduated in 1989 with Achille Castiglioni. An assistant lecturer to Achille Castiglioni and Eugenio Bettinelli in Milan and Paris, she is responsible for the new product development office of DePadova, working with Vico Magistretti, head of Lissoni Associati’s design group.

In 2001 she opened her own studio working on product design, architecture, and installations. Amongst her latest projects in architecture are The Jewellery Museum in Vicenza, the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Barcelona, Das Stue Hotel in Berlin, the Spa of the Four Seasons Hotel in Milan, the Room Mate Giulia Hotel in Milan and the Il Sereno Hotel in Como; showrooms and installations for Gianvito Rossi, BMW, Cassina, Missoni, Moroso, Molteni, Officine Panerai, H&M, Santoni and the general concept of Pitti Immagine in Florence. She creates design products for the most important Italian and international companies, such as: Agape, Alessi, Axor-Hansgrohe, B&B Italia, Baccarat, Boffi, Budri, Cassina, De Padova, Driade, Ferragamo, Flos, Gan, Georg Jensen, Glas Italia, Haworth, Kartell, Kettal, Kvadrat, Listone, Giordano, Louis Vuitton, Molteni, Moroso, Mutina, Rosenthal and Verywood.

Some of her work is displayed in various museums and collections, such as MoMA in New York, Musée des Arts decoratifs in Paris, the Museum of Design in Zurich, the Vitra Design Museum in Basel, the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, the Stedelijk in Amsterdam and the Triennale Museum in Milan.

She has won several international prizes and awards including the Medalla de Oro al Mérito en las Bellas Artes (Gold Medal in Fine Arts) awarded by the Spanish Government; Order of Isabella the Catholic, awarded by His Majesty The King of Spain Juan Carlos I; “Designer of the decade” for two German magazines, Home and Häuser, “Designer of the Year” for Wallpaper, Ad Spain, Elle Decor International and Architektur und Wohnen Magazine. She was the Ambassador of the Milan Expo in 2015. She was nominated Art Director of Cassina in September 2015.

Patricia Urquiola travelled to India where she was captivated by the delicacy and harmony of the Mughal architecture she found there. Gardens, terraces and miniatures found their way into her restless imagination inspiring a new collection which from the very first spark of creativity she wanted to be for the outdoors.

Garden Layers, the first outdoor adventure under the framework of the GAN Spaces series is a collection made up of rugs, mats, roll pillows and cushions that can be arranged in different ways…

The influence of the Orient in GARDEN LAYERS is evident in terms of the way it invites reclined relaxation on rugs and mats, supported on roll pillows and stuffed cushions. It can also be perceived in the fringes, the finishes and the geometry of its motifs.
Urquiola once again showcases her masterly design skills. Her creativity in interpreting other worlds and transporting us to them through her exquisite language.

The collection is available in three colour groups: terracotta, green ad blue. Its inspired design is combined with high-tech materials and fillings: weather resistant yarns and foams that dry rapidly (dryfast) in order to provide the perfect outdoor behaviour.

“CAN I DO THIS?”

 

 

With the Can sofa, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec are seeking to go beyond the creation of a practical, elegant and comfortable design.

Their intention is actually to reinvigorate the whole idea of the sofa itself, from something inherently complicated, to something simple, relaxed and for everyone. I talked to Erwan Bouroullec to find out how you go about creating a sofa design that is aesthetic and practical.

ROCKING WIRE DAYBEDS BY MULLER VAN SEVEREN

rocky

Muller van Severen describes the designs as “like a curled up mattress or a sheet of paper

The designers worked with a stainless steel netting of two by two centimetre squares to create the daybeds, which they describe as looking “like a curled up mattress or a sheet of paper, waiting for someone to lie down”.

“You can see through the object, but still grasp the architecture,” said the designers. “Transparency makes the objects present and absent at the same time.”

“They don’t impose themselves on you, while they continue to be sculptural.”

DAYBED BY OLE WANSCHER

 

Ole Wanscher’s Daybed

Daybed

Ole Wanscher (1903-1985), was born in Copenhagen in 1903 and was an architect and professor of architecture with furniture designs as his specialty. He came to shape Danish furniture, both as an active designer and as a master teacher. His furniture designs are now considered to be modern classics – sophisticated and functional.

Many of Ole Wanscher’s designs have become collector’s items due to their timelessness and beautiful finish. His OW150 daybed is no exception. The mattress almost floats on the straight legs finished with fine details. The delicate but strong frame holds the cotton webbing that supports the mattress

PAIR OF ARMCHAIRS BY JULES WABBES

 

Jules Wabbes’ Armchairs

Black Leather Pair of Armchairs

Acteur majeur du design dans la Belgique de l’après-guerre, Jules Wabbes (1919-1974) laisse derrière lui des pièces élégantes et intemporelles, aujourd’hui largement rééditées. Entre les années 50 et 70, période prolifique en matière de design, Jules Wabbes porta haut les galons de la scène belge, dont il est aujourd’hui devenu une figure emblématique. Ce n’est pourtant pas sur les bancs d’une institution prestigieuse que le designer, né à Bruxelles en 1919, a découvert sa vocation. Autodidacte, il quitte l’école à 16 ans pour se consacrer à la photographie. Après la Seconde Guerre mondiale, il ouvre une boutique d’antiquités avec Louise Carrey, épouse du peintre français Georges Carrey. Affirmant au gré des opportunités un don certain pour redonner vie aux objets et aux meubles, ses clients lui demandent conseil pour repenser leur intérieur. En 1951, il fonde donc un bureau de design avec l’architecte André Jacqmain, avec qui il réalise ses premiers aménagements de magasins. Trois ans plus tard, c’est la compagnie aérienne Sabena qui fait appel à lui pour repenser ses cabines, puis le Fonds colonial des invalidités lui demande de dessiner le mobilier de bureau de son nouveau bâtiment (1959). Suivra celui de l’ambassade américaine à La Haye, dans un bâtiment signé Marcel Breuer. Un domaine qui deviendra sa spécialité. En 1957, il fonde sa propre maison d’édition baptisée Le Mobilier Universel pour exprimer librement son talent. Tables, bureaux et bibliothèques en bois massif vont asseoir sa notoriété. Loin de vouloir dissimuler les assemblages, il aime les mettre en évidence. Son amour des matériaux traverse une production où le souci du détail figure au cœur des préoccupations du designer, réputé intraitable sur la qualité d’exécution. Il fut marié à Marie Wabbes, artiste et auteure de livres jeunesse, avec qui il eut quatre enfants. Sa fille Marie Ferran-Wabbes lui a consacré une biographie publiée en 2002 et fut la commissaire d’une rétrospective, tardive, au Bozar de Bruxelles (2012), où des pièces uniques et prototypes furent présentés pour la première fois. Emporté précocement, il laisse derrière lui une œuvre prolifique faite de meubles impeccablement dessinés, aux lignes simples et affirmées. Neuf marques se partagent aujourd’hui les licences officielles de Jules Wabbes. Quant aux pièces originales, on les retrouve régulièrement dans les salles des ventes.

OUTDOOR CHAIR BY PATRICIA URQUIOLA

 

Patricia Urquiola’s Outdoor Chair

Crinoline Chair

Can you picture the dresses that women wore in the 1800s? Full, bell-shaped skirts held by crinolines (rigid underskirt garments) were spectacular “micro-architectures” commonly seen in living rooms everywhere. All of the chairs in the Crinoline collection are designed to reflect this elegant look: the wide curve of the base is repeated in the seat and the curve of the backrest. “The curved part gives it a double-shell silhouette,” said Patricia when describing the soft lines of the series. Crinoline outdoor chairs and armchairs are comfortable, feminine and romantic. Crinoline is an innovation in taste. An opening. A product that encloses all of the sensitivity of a team working in collaboration with the B&B Italia Research and Development Centre. We left from Italy for the Far East with an aluminium structure: light, recyclable, resistant, completely rustproof and therefore perfect for outdoor use, and everything concerning the weave was changed. The creative process took shape through comparisons with the strengths and weaknesses of manual techniques and love for these traditional arts. Expert weavers tried time and again, but the perfect result escaped us. The woven cover of Crinoline emerged like the Arianna’s cloth: “I gave birth to it with the people who were working on it with me,” said Patricia. As a result, it is a collation of codes and languages. The 1800s, digital information, technology and hand crafted excellence.
