With her sense for classy eclecticism and the pleasure of intermingling, Paola Navone once more enriched Gervasoni’s collection this year. Included in the ‘Sweet’ collection are articles inspired by different “worlds”, by artisan knowledge going back to ancient tradition.
The new small interwoven armchair is as naturally beautiful and familiar as an object from one’s earliest memory. It retains the essence of the traditional comfortable and sturdy Philippine “papasan” seat which inspired it. The materials, however, are different: iron for the three-foot support structure and black rubber tubing for the wicker work constituting the seat.
The same black rubber tubing – in smaller dimensions – is the material used for the new suspension lamp which comes in two generous sizes; the image is that of an interwoven basket turned upside down and suspended from the ceiling with a cable wrapped in red fabric.
