Buildings suited to bamboo
by Chemaitis Egon | 3/12/2012
The whole poetic universe of Paola Navone is revealed in the new Gervasoni collection. The spirit of eclecticism, the pleasure of intermingling, the instinct to let loose one's imagination without limit of space and time.
The various areas represen
ted by the Gervasoni stand open onto one another, creating a uniquely fluid and permeable space: living-room area, an eating area and a sleeping area in which the new pieces designed by Paola Navone blend into a spontaneous game of cross-reference and sug
Each piece - articles of furniture, sofas, armchairs, tables, chairs and mirrors - tells its own story in its own language. Their blending stimulates the beauty of counterpoint, of life itself superimposed over things. The new and rich co
llection is known as the Sweet collection. Included in the collection are articles inspired by different "worlds", by artisan knowledge going back to ancient tradition and accommodated by the modern and instinctively curious eye of Paola Navone.
tional and modern materials - wood, marble, pressed bamboo, rattan, but also rubber and cement - are brought together with a sensitive and masterly touch and coloured in white, blue, grey to create a refined harmony of contrasts.
Still for the liv
ing area, but not limited exclusively to it, Paola Navone has designed a small upholstered armchair for Gervasoni, its frame and armrests made from walnut canaletto wood. Here too, formal perfection is the outcome of a highly delicate play of contrasts be
tween the slender structure and the full-bodied fabric seat, devised for maximum comfort.
