A touch of new objectivity
by Fabian Peters | 5/10/2018
Quo vadis, furniture design? This year’s Salone del Mobile reveals a few ideas. An analysis in our glance back at the fair.
The ClishClash sofa is a study of the analogies and contrasts between materials, created by first separating the parts of the sofa so as to imagine each of them as an independent element with its own features and own personality. The back is softer and inviting, the armrest rugged and durable, the base simple and solid. All this is upholstered in fabrics which underline these features: linen, felt, flocked fabric and leather add to each other in a vision of finishes and nuances. Harmony comes from the whole! ClishClash is a sofa seen right from the start as a system in which the multiple combinations overplay the relation between the parts. The end result is a series of easy, comfortable and unusual combinations.
