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 Sushi collection is a sophisticated wrapping concept inspired by universal layers, found also in nature and architecture. This concept is also, though be it in a different manner, found in the Karmacoma. A sofa with a hard shell, medium firmness support pillows and comfortable pillows on the surface. Each layer distinguished by a different sort of upholstery.
Besides the above a modernistic folklore Donut pouf can be spotted in this landscape. Large round islands upholstered with a patchwork of various colorful fabrics. All fabrics have been specially developed for this collection. Very handsome and eye catching are the large Carp fish embroideries. They appear on the various items and bond all items together.
The large and small geospere Rontonton lamps derive from a lighting family recognized by three dimensional geometric bodies made out of plastic and allumium perforated sandwich sheet. The radiation through the perforated sheets adds an additional layer onto all other designs. The Spirocube rug is another interpretation of modernistic folklore. It shows a two dimensional pattern of geometric spiral figures and makes a perfect base for this inventive assembly. Perhaps a new hotel lobby?
