the colors and shapes of fashion take on new forms
in an exclusive piece by
CAPPELLINI FOR YOOX.COM
Internationally renowned design brand Cappellini joins forces with the leading virtual store for multi-brand fashion and design in the world, yoox.com, in the creation of a unique new product, MULTIBONG, available in a strictly limited edition exclusively on yoox.com from September 2011
New York Design Week plays host to the worldwide debut of a new product and the beginning of an exciting collaboration between the worlds of design and the web. From 14- 17 May 2011 design addicts from all over the world can see MULTIBONG on show at the Cappellini Flagship Store in SoHo.
MULTIBONG is the latest multicolor evolution of the Bong table, created in 2004 by the Italian architect, designer, talent scout and trend-setter Giulio Cappellini. Crafted from fiberglass, Bong is normally available in a range of matt colors as well as a version with an evocative „marble‟ effect.
Giulio Cappellini has drawn inspiration from yoox.com’s dedication to both fashion and design, and the ever–increasing affinity between these two fields of creativity and excellence. The trend for color and incisive graphic intervention seen in recent fashion collections are reinterpreted and given new life.
The result is MULTIBONG - An evocation of balance and harmony through the artful use of syncopated visual rhythms and graphic asymmetries. The rounded side table or stool is adorned with decisive geometric detailing, mixing intense citrus tones and earthier colors in a high-gloss finish.
100% Made in Italy, MULTIBONG is finished by hand by Cappellini‟s master craftsmen and will be available, while stocks last, exclusively on yoox.com.
