Da a Presents New Pieces at its Debut at the Salone del Mobile 2018Friday 20 April 2018
Da a Presents New Pieces at its Debut at the Salone del Mobile 2018 ⇒ Da a is where heavy-duty mechanical industry meets furniture design. In this alternative to mass production, twelve designers and the Italian industrial know-how face a new challenge: making home furnishings using the tools and knowledge normally used to make buckets, arms and frames for earthmoving machinery. Da a’s products express a reflection capable of going into all kinds of interior and outdoor settings, furnishing them and adding connotations which may be confidential or manifest. Join CovetEd and discover the new pieces this Italian brand presented at Salone del Mobile 2018.
Da a presented nine new-in design pieces at its debut at the Salone del Mobile 2018. This year, Marc Sadler is one of the designers entering the short list. Like all of his chosen colleagues, Sadler has been collaborating with Da a for many years. With his unmistakable stroke, he has given life to three elements: Rock, Flat and Box. Amongst the youngest, Alberto Ghirardello has also been selected, with a design piece called Line. The simple and innovative designer Matteo Benedettini is also presenting his Teia lamp at the Salone del Mobile.
With the purity of the table Tori, the Studio Zattin fills the list of the chosen designers. Da a is being presented with a stand designed and built by studio Calvi Brambilla, described by the duo of architects as “a rigorous house with three large openings towards a warm and Mediterranean suggestion”, to emphasize the transition from heavy-duty mechanical industry to furniture design. Recalling the Roman impluvium, an outdoor area opens in the middle, all characterized by sharp and strong contrasts, like those between red and black. Like the cold of iron, the main material of the Da a products is made warm through a detailed research and experimentation on finishes.
Rock Chair (with and without armrests), by Marc Sadler
Rock is a complex construction fully produced from recycled aluminium, which demonstrates the brand’s match of different metalworking processes. Sadler’s pen has drawn a shape that could hardly go unnoticed. Three legs, seat riveted to the frame and a designed to be stacked. Rock is available with or without arms, in the painted version, single or two-tone. Features that will give a touch of originality and a breath of audacity inside a living room.
Flat Low and High Bookcase and Box Iron Bookcase, both by Marc Sadler
The identity of Flat, as well as that of Box, is defined to such an extent that it claims a prominent position. Flat is a rectangular parallelepiped, a fully recycled aluminium shaped product that can be assembled by the customer with a more or less complex modularity allowed by the different sizes dividing compartments. Available in chromatic variants ranging from raw to painted, with the addition of special effects, Flat is an absolute protagonist of spaces. Box lives as a single element and, at the same time, it represents the lego brick of more or less great bookcases. The material designed by Sadler is fully recycled aluminium, available in several colours. Like Flat, Box is a very versatile design object. It can be closed by a little door or it can remain open, with or without backdrop. These are some of the features that offer the possibility of unique and creative variations.

Linea Red Bench, by Alberto Ghirardello, and Tra-guardo Cabinet, by Marta Laudani and Marco Romanelli
Made of laser-cut metal, Linea is an elegant product. Designed by Ghirardello with an elementary shape, the bench is developed through an ergonomic longitudinal curvature that guarantees its structural solidity, generating an exclusive shape. Looking through,”tra-guardare” is an act that human curiosity cannot prevent. From this suggestion, arises the need to design a cabinet that has the transparency of an aviary. Tra-guardo is made from metal. It leaves room for the more extrovert image but it preserves the instinct of protection we have against objects dear to us.
Tori Rectangular and Square Table by Studio Zattin
If we approach the purity of form and the strength of matter, we could simply be talking about Tori. Nine millimetres of thickness chase each other in the structure from the horizontal to the vertical elements. The iron, in its original materiality, meets the glazed stoneware handcrafted with a glossy finish in indigo and green and another opaque in the smoke tone. Available in rectangular and square version.
Crossing Table with Central Fold, by Lorenzo Damiani
Crossing is a metal sheet cut and bent like a wave. The structural ribs, typical of sheet processing, become the compositional element that characterises a table with essential shapes, designed for different uses and environments. The underlying frame structure is turned into a decorative element of the surface: the circular section rods assume decorative value during the “crossing” of the slab inside the central wave. The presence of the circular section rods, on the upper part of the top, is underlined with a change of finish on the surface.
Teia Lamp, by Matteo Benedettini
From mythology to nature, from the ancient era of the Titans to the contemporary digital era, Teia is the synthesis of these worlds, so different, but so close. The lamp designed by Benedettini reinterprets the sun in its most essential form, a disk that flows from top to bottom, evoking the movement of the sun in the sky. Behind its apparent simplicity, Teia hides a sliding system never used before that is based on two separate, hidden cables behind the cogwheels. The LEDs are powered by a series of springs that push on circuits of copper. It is a simple solution but it is interpreted in an innovative way.
I-Tube, CE STUDIO Table
Often with only 5 mm, the metal top of the I-Tube contrasts with the elongated and curved cylindrical shape of the bases. The result is a Ce Studio creation with an original and captivating form. An innovative design concept that well matches with each other with elegance.
