A touch of new objectivity

Quo vadis, furniture design? This year’s Salone del Mobile reveals a few ideas. An analysis in our glance back at the fair.
The Rock collection is in a different mood, one where the Diesel inspiration is linked to the world of music, concerts and the visual idiom. The rectangular occasional table Xraydio 2 Disc is therefore made by printing the X-ray of a dj console on glass and using the colours of the night with shades from electric blue to black. By retaining the transparency of the glass the effect is truly strong, evocative and highly iconographic. The same process was applied to production of the small Xraydio 1 Razza table, although here the chosen image is that of a ray fish swimming against a blue background. Finally the 3-panel screen Xraydio 3 Natura Morta has a printed photographic image which plays with the archetype of a seventeenth-century still life.
