New tables: From material fetish to the Zen factor
by Jasmin Jouhar | 4/11/2017
Be they short or long of leg, simply unique or extravagant: there’s no end to the variety of tables in Milan.
Silver Lake is a Patricia Urquiola creation that offers us an architectural memory inspired by the Californian modernism of the ‘50s.
The Silver Lake range is composed of three sofas, two armchairs and a small armchair displaying a continuous geometric interplay of solids and voids, with volumes creating many-sided polyhedral forms.
Silver Lake takes and retains from the ‘50s a scrupulous choice of materials, whose physical and chromatic qualities are enhanced by a meticulous, deliberate combination of contrasting surfaces.
Wood, steel, fabric or leather in a sculptural synthesis that, indirectly, brings to the surface today the Utopian vision of the ‘50s. Silver Lake is the name of a Los Angeles neighbourhood that is famous for its architecture and today hosts numerous architecture firms and creative agencies.
