For Salone del Mobile 2013 in Milan, Italian design brand Cappellini will be showing three new chairs, “three different stories that each represent the brand’s soul: a new product by a famous designer, the evolution of a Cappellini long-seller to meet the tastes of an attentive market and a scouting project to enhance the contribution of different worlds.” says Cappellini. The ‘Trez’ chair by Zanini de Zanine above, a strong graphic design inspired by Brazilian culture, is the fruit of “Cappellini NEXT 2012”, a talent scouting project which traveled to five continents for a project to be completed and included in the 2013 Cappellini collection.
Trez is a reinterpretation of the work of two artists from the plastic arts world: sculptor Amilcar de Castro, famous for his poetic use of clean cutting and bent steel, and the father of modern Brazilian design Joaquim Tenreiro who began everything with his three legged chair. “A bold and eclectic mixture, an evocative and original shape-sculpture, it is made of laser cut and welded 4mm thick aluminum.”
Dalia, the new product by renowned designer Marcel Wanders, is a contemporary armchair that resembles the shape of the colorful flower that bears its name. “Its size, the pleasant comfort of its upholstery and its swivel base make it a product ideal for both the contract and residential market.”
And Lotus Color by Jasper Morrison is part of the long-selling Cappellini collection of Lotus armchairs now “enriched with an option that makes them warmer and softer to the eye, responding to the needs of a market that demands always more cutting edge products but with a reassuring and domestic appearance.” – now available in three colors.
