Paradise, Snakes and the Light
by Fabian Peters | 1/16/2018
The Featured Editions are presented at the imm cologne for the sixth time. And this year we present the winners for the best installations.
The Terramare collection by Studio Chiaramonte-Marin comprises a set of sofas and armchairs crafted in aluminium tubing. The signature feature of the collection is the die-cast aluminium connecting element, reminiscent of the most instinctive system that binds together cane stalks. The arms and backrest are in synthetic leather, with a finish that gives the material an aged look. The inside of the cushions guarantees top performance thanks to two elements: the memory foam, a polyurethane foam compound that takes on a shape in line with the bodyweight of the user, and polyester flakes to boost volume. The memory foam and the polyester flakes are inserted into and distributed throughout a three-part cushion cover. The outside of the cushions are covered with a PVC fabric and coated polyester, for a water-repellent effect, and are dip-dyed. The small tables have an extruded aluminium frame and porcelain stoneware tops. The items in the Terramare collection come in four colour variants.
For 2017 Emu expands its collection with the introduction of an armchair in tubular aluminium with Batyline Ferrari padded seat and eco-leather backrest and dining tables in aluminium.
