Fendi Casa Presents its New Capsule Collection by Thierry Lemaire ⇒ By fusing Italian style with French decorative art, the French architect, designer, and decorator Thierry Lemaire made of the New Capsule Collection of FENDI Casa, which was presented at the Salone Internazionale Del Mobile 2018, a celebration of architecture and aesthetics.
The New Capsule Collection of FENDI Casa has the hands of the French architect, designer, and decorator Thierry Lemaire, that redefined the concept of elegance with a sophisticated and eclectic touch with his work on the new Capsule.

The collaboration between Thierry Lemaire and the Roman MaisonFendi Casa started in 2013, when the decorator conceived iconic furnishings for rooms of the historical Italian Fendi Casa flagship store in Via Montenapoleone, in Milano.
Replete with elements of minimalism and uncommon design, the collection has brilliantly combined leather and velvet with fur, and metals and wood with the rarest of marbles. “Fashion and design are two really very close creative fields and it was stimulating to create domestic furnishings able to blend the values of both and raise them to new heights”, says Lemaire.

Constantin sofa, from the New Capsule Collection, has modern geometries: the sharp lines outline an angled architecture, accentuated by the asymmetry of the modules and the profile of the backrest progressively slimmed at the ends. It is defined by a series of overlapping elements which create an effect of volumes, measured and rich at the same time.

The lowered armrests are applied to the seat cushion in generous proportions. A piece of furniture that reflects suggestions connected with extreme coherence, such as the choice of the upholstery in hazelnut-coloured leather, in contrast to the sand-coloured cotton velvet, combined with the texture of the decorative complementary items: The new cushions are a tribute to the iconic FENDI FF logo, designed by Karl Lagerfeld in 1965, and created for the occasion in inlaid mink fur, a skilful expression of excellent and unique savoir-faire in the art of fur.
Emblematic of FENDI Casa’s art de Vivre, both harmonious and elegant, with its sleek design and clean volumes, the Beaune table is a revelation: This almost sculptural piece was created with contrasting materials and enhanced by excellent craftsmanship.
Two cylindrical bases with bronze-finished metal coverings support the top made up of an imposing slab in rare Panda White Marble. The white stone surface and black nuances are marked by metallic intersections coordinated at the base.
