‘Ivy’ by Paola Navone for EMU

'Ivy' by Paola Navone

'Ivy' by Paola Navone

The ‘Ivy’ collection designed by Paola Navone for Emu is inspired by the ancient “topiary” art, the trimming of trees ad shrubs in order to give them ornamental shapes. This art derived from the attempt to “model” nature, as in the words of Shirley Hibberd, the person responsible for the revival of topiary in England in the late 1800s: “It may be true, as I believe it is, that the natural form of a tree is the most beautiful possible for that tree, but it may happen that we do not want the most beautiful form, but one of our own designing, and expressive of our ingenuity.”

Finding inspiration in this art, Paola Navone has designed sculpture-furniture created for living in and beautifying outdoor areas, structures created using the natural material par excellence — metal — bent to the will of the human mind.

The meeting between the designer and Emu made it possible to mold an apparently “hard” material such as metal, obtaining three-dimensional shapes so light that they give the impression that they could float in the air.

The structures of sofas, armchairs and table, empty inside, incorporate nature and become an integral part of it thanks to their noninvasive character, which harmonizes with the surrounding landscape.

They are objects created to be left outdoors nonchalantly, furniture that will allow itself to be “eaten up” by ivy like statues, and those who sit on it will fully experience the feeling of being immersed in nature.

With his playful design Alain Gilles creates entire worlds which are conspicuous for their colour. As the product of a conscious exploration of the possible multiple personalities of an individual object, Gilles has now created a piece of furniture which is designed along strict but at the same time geometrically free lines. The concepts of movement and durability are integrated into the design process of the ‘Big Table’, which was created for Bonaldo and presented at Salone del Mobile 2009. The result is a fusion of function and sculpture.

In spite of a year of economic crisis the Salone in Milan has strengthened its position as the world’s leading fair for furniture and furnishings. Combining the furniture fair on the same site with the alternating bi-annual Euroluce and Bagno/Cucine – each a heavyweight in its own right – is something no other event of this kind can offer.

Also this year Architonic collected the best novelties of the Salone del Mobile and Euroluce for you.
