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.
Patricia Urquiola uses Alycrite for the coffee tables in the new Massas collection by Moroso, with their multi-material tops featuring a decorative herringbone motif that gives a contemporary interpretation of the traditional technique of inlaying, accentuating the various finishes and the different colours in the Acrylite palette.
The original combinations play on the apparently random juxtaposition of natural patterns in pastel shades, including horn, mustard enamel, military colours, petrol blue, sand, right through to masculine interpretations of fabrics such as tweed and solid colours such as airplane blue, burgundy and ice.
Super-glossy finishes to match the designer's multifaceted creativity in all three of the versions presented, one with touches of yellow, one with hues from green to pale blue, and the third a mix of strawberry, toffee, cocoa and dove grey.
A design that illustrates the versatility of Alycrite and its capacity to create richly-coloured end products that imitate natural materials such as horn, mother-of-pearl, marble and tortoiseshell.
