Salone del Mobile 2016 – LEMA new collection for homeSunday 17 April 2016
Lema’s home furniture at Salone del Mobile 2016 reconfirms the unusual discretion of its language through the graceful design and sought-for finishes of the new products. A delicate creative lexicon, rich of intense simplicity in its finest meaning, with clever references to the design culture and unusual unexpected twists given by splitting elements, only apparently discontinuous in style, that exalt the character.
Furniture and furnishing accessories signed by renowned names of international design in addition to creations of emerging artists, to underscore the company’ ability, unique in the furnishing world, to convey different design approaches in an articulated but always consistent collection. Not only the single pieces are impacting, but also their combination, offering new aesthetic ideas for homes that do not fear the thrill to reveal their most intimate character.
THE NOVELTIES FOR THE DAY AREA AND PADDED FURNITURE
Among the novelties, the essential style of Piero Lissoni, art director of the brand, who conceived LUCE. Starting from the classic iconography of the table, Lissoni worked on the exasperation of its features by subtraction: top in Canaletto Walnut and structure in bronzed die-cast aluminium merge with the intense lightness of the design given by the essential volumes and thicknesses. A new table, available in different sizes, all fixed and square, of modern, almost technological style, thought to furnish refined home environments and also sophisticated contract spaces.
The collaboration with Christophe Pillet is also renewed, who signs three new products characterised by the elegant vintage spirit: Steward storage unit, Graceland table and Lady Jane bergère.
STEWARD is an elegant, double front-sided storage unit in wood, featuring refined details in lacquered HPL (6 mm thickness) and base in painted metal that combines the charm of a handicraft piece with a modern, typically industrial design approach. An essential cube in thermo-treated wood, characterised by a vague retrò style, with hinged doors that hide the spacious compartments and sliding drawers useful for the living area, also ideal as bar cabinet.
Various styles with vintage touches also for GRACELAND, round table that plays on neat and rational shapes, characterised by the metal structure of strong personality, matched to the top proposed in Milan, in the elegant shiny lacquered finish.
Always characterised by a mix of styles, today a winning approach to further express the most elegant modern character, the neat lines that recall the shapes of the ‘50s of the elegant and cosy LADY JANE. A timeless, poetic and at the same time rigorous bergère characterised by a multi-faceted soul, for the home and also for the office.
A bold fluidity defines EYDO asymmetric dormeuse by Francesco Rota, already author of numerous proposals for Lema. Distinguished by an architectural style, it invites to relax as inferred from the name of Greek origin. It consists of a suspended structure in painted bronze and the unique seat and backrest volume that, despite recalling the lightness of a wing thanks to its reduced thickness, it envelopes and welcomes the body, offering great comfort. The stitching and leather upholstery embellish the design.
Synthesis of a contemporary thought of vintage spirit, the new BEA dining armchair by Roberto Lazzeroni that stands out for its neat and refined soul. A perfect item also for the contract sector, that creates an ideal set of passé-partout chairs with Bice lounge chair designed in 2015, of which it revisits the measured proportions and enveloping shapes of the shell backrest. With fabric or leather upholstery, it stands out for the light structure in bronze metal.
Also reconfirmed the collaboration with Matteo Nunziati who, after designing Marble Arch wall unit in 2013, signs this year Glance display case and Kaiwa sofa. Of sculptural character, GLANCE is a refined synthesis between the strength of thermo-treated oak and the lightness of crystal, gently joined by bronze aluminium that defines the perimeter.
Conversional moments have instead inspired the Milanese designer in defining KAIWA (meaning dialoguing in Japanese), a two-seat fixed sofa, with a light suspended base in painted metal of bronze colour that supports the padded seat and backrest. A proposal able to fit in elegant home contexts, but thought in particular to furnish lounge areas or refined contract spaces.
