Cappellini’s Playful Side at the 2012 imm Cologne

Saturday, February 25th, 2012

Cappellini’s showroom at the 2012 imm Cologne focused on the modern living room and contemporary dining room environments, both of which featured their first novelties of the year.  The new “Tate Color” dining chair by Jasper Morrison was on display in eight vibrant colors forming various wall sculptures.  “Basket” sofa by Bouroullec Brothers and “Lotus Attesa” by Jasper Morrison dominated the living arenas in bright chirpy colors and shapes while the large “Simplon” dining table also by Morrison with an aluminum coated base and glossy white lacquered top was paired with “Antler” chairs by Nendo which added even more fun to the already bubbly atmosphere that so truthfully attested to the brand’s promise to be the “Explorers of design between imagination and reality”

5 Modern Furniture Examples in High Gloss Lacquered Finish

Friday, February 24th, 2012

Transcending time and style, high gloss lacquer finish has been reincarnated in many forms and even more functions.  Originally from the Far East where resin tinted with charcoal or cinnabar adorned artisan objects, lacquer has played a vital role in contemporary furniture making, revolutionizing modern design and inspiring the likes of Eileen Gray and Eero Saarinen. Today, lacquer is as popular and widely used as ever, offering a refined eloquence with depth and textural variance that collectively and effectively contribute to its sleek and sought after appeal.

Kartell presents its “two faces” at the 2012 imm Cologne

Wednesday, February 22nd, 2012

This year, at the Annual imm Cologne exhibition, Kartell chose to showcase its essence and, as most would call it, its most recognizable brand association by segmenting its iconic and new products into two categories, à la the “two faces” of Kartell.  Its playful, colorful and youthful side full of cheerful modern furniture in neon yellows, hot pinks and electric greens; and the more elegant selection of designer chairs, tables and accent pieces reinterpreted in classically timeless, sophisticated transparent materials.
