Cornelio Cappellini Presents Modernity and Design at Fuorisalone 2018 ⇒ Cornelio Cappellini is a contemporary Italian furniture company founded in the middle of the last century in “Brianza”, a small area close to Milan, the district worldwide famous for the excellence in furniture manufacturing. And during the Milan Design Week 2018, the brand presented a collection that blends modernity, decoration, art and design. Discover it all here with CovetED.
The wonderful Italian company bears the name of its founder: the forward-looking entrepreneur Cornelio Cappellini. In the period of the company foundation, classical style furniture was in vogue. Despite that, Cappellini immediately understood the importance of combining handcraft tradition with modern traits. The values of passion, quality and attention towards details have pushed the family business to the creation of more modern collections all Made in Italy.
The new Cornelio Cappellini collection presented at Fuorisalone 2018 leads the visitors to the discovery of items that blend modernity, decoration, art and design. The collection enhances a modern and new feeling: the patterns of the finishes are innovative, creating a unique pattern that underlines the hand-made quality. The Murano glass is the main character, revised in its contemporary key with thick glass enriched by artisanal skills. Furthermore, Cornelio Cappellini keeps on giving its personal interpretation of the use of the resin. In this collection, it’s meant to take a double role, both formal and natural, to inspire preciousness and uniqueness at the same time.
The visitors in the Milanese booth were welcomed by a synergy of coloured areas from which emerged warm tones of oak and the fine Bois Violet, a mix with shades of cool grey typical of a modern and decorative style. Traditional colours merged with unconventional shades like deep red and deep blue (on some details of the libraries), and green watercolour finishes complete storage units with natural marbles inserts. The high-quality fabrics and leather typical of Cornelio Cappellini are handcrafted with embroideries and threads of satin that run along the profiles of some of the most beautiful seatings designed.
