The Award Winners
Here they are: the 29 innovations Stylepark awards at the Salone del Mobile 2018 as part of Stylepark Selected.
On the occasion of this important exhibition, arflex presents Cradle family, a system composed of an armchair, a sofa and a small table. Their characteristic is based on the structure: a classic triangular construction, that is repeated several times around the models, so that you can admire it from each point of view.
The cow-hide strap that rolls up around the rigid frame covered by fabric, which holds soft cushions, is fixed between the steel structure of the feet, creating in this way a cradle, that gives harmony with the contrasts of the materials. The armchair and the sofa draw both from the rich lineage of Italian furniture, known for its bold sculptural shapes, as well as from the modernist sensibility, that demands an honest structural expression.
Rather than conceal the framework and attempt to make the models levitate off the ground, the elegant crafted supporting elements themselves become the highlight of the pieces.
The frame is realized in moulded polyurethane foam and is places on black lacquered die-cast metal. The strap in cow-hide is available in the colors black or brown testa di moro.
The small table is made of the same legs, in black lacquered die-cast metal, which support the top in wood and the top in marble, in the finishing white Carrara, black Marquinia, Emperador or green Guatemala.
