S.Pellegrino and Giulio Cappellini -Art Director of Cappellini- unveil ‘The Journey of Water’ An exceptional Design project involving three international artists: Chinese Neri&Hu, American Steven Haulenbeek and French Philippe Nigro

Stampa
MILAN, 16 April, 2018 — S.Pellegrino, the world’s leading sparkling mineral water with over a century-long heritage of Italian good taste and lifestyle, unveils its awaited Design Special Edition at Milan Design Week. In partnership with architect Giulio Cappellini, talent scout for the world’s next top designers and Art Director of Cappellini, S.Pellegrino is bringing unique pieces of design to the tables of the finest restaurants in the world to celebrate “The Journey of Water”.
Opening this new Milan Design Week edition, S.Pellegrino and Giulio Cappellini reveal their special collaboration and disclose the names of the three international designers chosen for the “first time ever” design project: Neri&Hu from China, Steven Haulenbeek from the United states of America and Philippe Nigro from France, each of whom has conceived a different label.
Neri&Hu, award-winning architects and designers hailing from Shanghai, China, whose projects range from architecture to interior and from hotel to restaurant, take a critical approach to their work. Context is key to any project and in the case of S.Pellegrino, the duo have delved into the natural elements of the brand fusing the cyclical theme of past and future. Their label is a sophisticated representation of water in the form of clouds, “deeply rooted in the past with a view to the future, they take us where it all begins, the sky. From here, we start our journey.”
Chicago based artist, Steven Haulenbeek, named by the New York Times in 2015 as one of America’s most exciting designers, is known for his functional sculptures and use of raw materials. Haulenbeek applies his experimental style to his special edition label to illustrate the continuation of the journey through the earth. “I am representing the filtration of rainwater through the ground using an inverted pyramid of flowing lines. The lines descend to the source - the red star - at the center of the label. From the source another pyramid of lines cascades downwards and out into the world.”
The journey of water is completed by award-winning French designer, Philippe Nigro, whose experiences, reinforced by the combination of Franco-Italian culture, allow him to navigate between projects of different types and scales, products and scenographies, working with industry, furniture editors and craftsmen as well. Nigro’s modern interpretation of the classic label looks to the signature sparkling ness synonymous with S.Pellegrino water. ‘From the sky, through the rocks, to the sparkle.’
Following a prestigious line of limited edition partnerships recognizing Italian talent, style and heritage, this is the first time a range of exclusive labels will hero S.Pellegrino’s own iconic identity, interpreted by some of the most exciting figures within the world of design. The three special edition bottles can be found in the best restaurants of the world along 2018, while the three individual installations are exposed at CAPPELLINI POINT – show room and space to meet, discuss and promote design, and at SUPERDESIGN SHOW, the showcase of Italian and international talent in design at SUPERSTUDIO PIÙ.
Notes to editors
Previous limited edition partnerships have included the likes of Bulgari, Vogue Italia, Pavarotti and Missoni. More information can be found here.

    From the 17th of April to June in the milanese showroom of Santa Cecilia 4 will be held CAPPELLINI GOES GIPSY, the second act wanted by Giulio Cappellini in collaboration with Valentina Folli, narrating the versatility of CAPPELLINI’s collections.
    Around the world in eight spaces, full of folk references and conceptual souvenirs evoking just as many inspirations.
    A journey through the most evocative and deeply-rooted cultures in the world defining a new nomadism.
    Within a total stylistic freedom, new dwelling interpretations are born.
     
    The curtain opens on “Cappellini goes Gipsy”, the second episode of the format created by the brand of design made in Italy to tell, through a series of evocative representations, the versatility of the company’s furniture collections. Held from the 17th of April, the day of the opening of the Salone del Mobile 2018, it will be on display till June inside the spaces of Cappellini’s showroom in Via Santa Cecilia, Milan.
    “After Cappellini goes Barocco – says the architect Giulio Cappellini – we are presenting Cappellini goes Gipsy, another interpretation of our kaleidoscopic ways of thinking interior design through our furniture. Goes Barocco was drawn from a historical time which was rich in colours and decorations while Goes Gipsy tells about a multicultural path visiting many different parts of the world. This is the nomad home of a traveller who loves to be contaminated by different cultures, often far away but capable of stirring emotions. Goes Gipsy is a hymn to the end user who loves mixing products and different moods with nonchalance”.
    “Cappellini goes Gipsy” is a cross-cutting path starting from a reference to the vintage mood of the legendary routes and continuing with a series of evocative images. Drawing inspiration from styles, colours and customs of eight different cultures, Cappellini showcases an eclectic experience made of just as many settings combining contaminations between present and past, West and East, interior design and décor. A style which is set-free to express the new attitude towards aesthetic nomadism combining with nonchalance products and moods to animate a kaleidoscope of emotions.
    A sensorial path takes shapes through Cappellini’s collections which are interpreted by designer and scenographer Valentina Folli, decontextualized on a geographical scale and captured in instants of domestic life pushed to the limit of the absurd. The rigorous and hyper-contemporary forms of the company’s projects discover a new identity within the combination of different expressions of the folk culture. A conceptual experience redeeming the most fascinating aspect of the kitsch culture through the theme of the souvenir: each room is a collection of objects, memories and images of an imaginary journey.
    Eight settings to stir emotions and embark on an intellectual journey towards the discovery of new dwelling interpretations. The path begins with the sunny and relaxing experience of MEDITERRANEO, between fishermen’s villages and natural conviviality: the spontaneity of lunch outdoor and the pleasure of a siesta during midday heat in a mix of forms and chromatic gradations ranging from light blue to neutral tones, weaving together indoor and outdoor moods.
    Continuing with the landscapes of NORTH AMERICA: a wide space evoking the endless horizon of desert routes set the stage for a series of furniture marked by sculptural and monolithic forms, in a clear reference to the evocative rock formations of the Monument Valley as well as to the totems of the Navajo culture still inhabiting this area. A journey on the road combining the iconic gas pumps of Route 66 with artifacts of Native American tradition. The formal linearity of the décor by Cappellini cohabits with nonchalance with the pop-folk language.
    The tale dedicated to AFRICA is essential but with a great personality. The setting is inspired by the colours of the earth contrasting with the loud and lively fabrics that animate the primordial sculptural forms of the seats by Cappellini marked by the purity of the materials (wood, lava stone, black soil) and by the craftsmanship applied to serial production like for some armchairs. The manufacturing component of Cappellini’s collections recalls the patterns of wax fabrics, anthropomorphic forms of wooden masks, the textures of carpets. The powerful and profound magic of the Black continent enters the domestic dimension and suggest a neotribal style.
    Next, it’s time for the COLORFUL ASIA recalling the hyper-coloured images of Asian cultures, from India to Thailand and China. The deep shades of burgundy, indigo and yellow support a multitude of forms, decorations, details. The living room alternates a sensual and relaxing dimension to the frantic suggestions of an Eastern metropolis, interpreted by a street-food corner defined by a waterfall of lanterns. In a conceptual contrast, favouring pastel and sand colours, the destructured lines of the seats and the atmosphere of the Bedouin village set the stage for the MIDDLE EAST: a barely hinted tent narrates a magic suspended in time.
    Colours are back as vivid as ever in the space dedicated to SOUTH AMERICA. The patterns of Peruvian fabrics and floral compositions of Mexican and Amerindian cultures draw the mood of a traditional holiday celebrating the joy of conviviality. Festoon lights, piñatas, blooming plants complete the naïf exuberance of the Latin world in a chromatic explosion of bright colours. Decorative elements assume a more solemn and sober connotation in the display dedicated to JAPAN, suggesting the intimacy of a private setting like a bedroom. The pop prints from the manga culture are reduced to minimalism to meet with the Zen aesthetic of the millenary tradition of the samurai and evoke ancient rituals. In a constant game of colour combinations, the seats favour a horizontal style, decorative elements are light and linear, sometimes sinuous and enveloping, resting in dedicated corners as if it was the entrance to a magical “Ghibli” ryokan.
    The project Cappellini Goes Gipsy ends in the gallery of showcases looking on Via San Damiano: a setting evoking the TRANSIBERIAN experience. From far-eastern Russia to Mongolia, the uncontaminated and far-away cultures of the Northern regions of Asia reveal themselves through hall carpets, decorated doors and fur details. In this scenery evoking the atmosphere of a yurt tent and the intrinsic nature of nomadism, seats and decorative elements are stylistically uncoordinated to suggest the different cultures of this region meeting in the choice of an orange shade of red as a leitmotif.
    A series of scenic elements contribute to animate the mood and takes part in the game of sensorial contaminations. Sounds, neon signs, billboards and vintage images invite the visitor to delve into the representation and inspire him a new-found freedom of composition. A scene with a Polaroid effect. The attention for graphic design is also visible on the logo of the project reproducing, in a layering of textures, the word Gipsy on the windows of Cappellini’s showroom.

    From extreme forms to essential lines, from vivid colours to neutral shades, from hi-tech materials to natural elements. Moreover, the playful component, unexpected and ironic. For Cappellini, contrasts are parts of the same vision and define the design identity of the company. This contraposition defines a dwelling experience overtaking trends, functional borders and the simple exercise of home décor. Consistent with its own DNA, the brand intertwines industrial experimentation and artistic inspiration, tradition and cultural contaminations, it gives voice to an avant-garde message on display on the occasion of the Salone del Mobile in Milan, held from the 17th to 22nd of April. The new collections are on display in a scenery made of vivid and white light, obtained through neon to emphasize the stylistic language of this project, to enhance the fading colours and add value to the textures on the surface. In a reference to the lighting design by Dan Flavin and neon scenography by Lucio Fontana, as well as the use of light as an architectural element, Cappellini defines the ephemeral design experience where objects are deprived of their functionality and become icons of themselves. A display of artistic inspiration, furniture elements are presented in a system of boxes and towers expressing their most profound designing contents, revealing the sophisticated manufacturing of surfaces and the use of new materials made possible by research on innovation. Colour itself becomes a part of the creative and manufacturing process, referencing the warm shades of frescos and paintings of the past, as well as the pop colours of the Op Art. Once again, the collections by Cappellini reveal their eclectic nature, anticipating behaviour and needs of the end-user to adapt with nonchalance to residential and contract spaces.
     
    DENTO - Tomek Rygalik 2018
    Forms are soft; surfaces are smooth; lines are clean. From the encounter of four rounded elements, remindful of river pebbles, the Dento seat is born. An all-rounded seat inviting to comfort thanks to its technical construction allowing the armrests to adapt to the position of those sitting on it, only to snap back to its original perfection. The same happens with fabrics and leather upholstery: bending, curling, crushing without forming a crease. Enveloping and comforting, Dento is presented in the Swedish style variant with ash legs, as well as in the swivelling version with die-cast aluminium base.
     
    JULI PLASTIC - Werner Aisslinger 2018
    Twenty years later the original project, a new variant of Juli is born, the armchair that had many creative and manufacturing interpretations during its long history. This is the time for Juli Plastic: the shell was redesigned through plastic manufacturing stimulating new frontiers of experimentation. The almost imperceptible restyling enhanced the stylistic contents of the first design, the curves of the shell were made lighter to preserve its sculptural quality, its comfort and the ergonomics of the design. From the variant with a swivelling base to the one with wooden legs, up to the stylistic elegance of the model with tubular metal support, Juli Plastic plays with shades of lobster red and sage green in a refined neo-vintage reference.
     
    O-CAP - Jasper Morrison 2018
    A sheet of leather, cut and shaped around the idea of a seat, is the element with which Jasper Morrison defines the O-Cap armchair. O-Cap is the technological evolution of the Cap-Chair from 2013. Confirming the attention and complexity of its manufacturing, the result is a real masterpiece of craftsmanship drawing inspiration from the ancient leather art made in Italy. O-Cap presents a body in full-grain or pigmented leather with a raw cut that in this new version becomes the soul of the item to bring support, envelope and softness to the metal structure which, thanks to a remarkable design, is reduced to its minimum while offering great stability and lightness. The aluminium base, also completely redesigned to create an effect of maximum lightness in the volumes, is available with four spokes with tips or five spokes with or without casters. Even if it was designed for the office and lounge areas, with its refined workmanship and elegant forms O-Cap adapts with versatility to other residential contests.
     
    NEWOOD – BrogliatoTraverso 2018
    By recasting in a contemporary key the Windsor chairs with their timeless charm, Newood and Newood Light are born and signed by Alberto Brogliato and Federico Traverso. In this new collaboration with Cappellini, the creative duo brings the attention back to the chair and their practical approach to design hits home. Newood and Newood Light reveal the perfect balance between filled and empty spaces, a harmony between technologically advanced manufacturing and craftsmanship, a meeting between past and present. A concept expressed in the extraordinary attention to details and especially in its characteristic backrest made of curved solid wood: this element conveys the tactile pleasure, the authenticity of wood and its reassuring beauty. Newood is a hymn to pure design, confirmed by the fact that it’s the first stackable chair, completely made of wood, by Cappellini. Available in the classic colours of black and bleached wood, it’s renewed in the contemporary shades of Shangai blue and Cherry red.
     
    HIGH TIME - Christophe Pillet 2018
    Essential yet extremely refined. Simple yet definitely sophisticated. Linear yet absolutely versatile. These pairs define High Time seating system by Christophe Pillet. The designer for Cappellini brings his designing experience to a tailoring dimension. Forms are built in details and the important work on the ergonomics of the armrests, so high and graceful, conveys total comfort. Sharp lines are softened with the definition of volumes taking shape in a surprising gradual control. The tubular metal base lifts the seat and emphasizes its visual lightness. The upholstery is completely removable and launches a new era in this sector. Designed as a modular and customizable system, High Times includes two- and three-seat sofa, central and angular elements, a chaise longue, a series of pouffes and some coffee tables to be combined in new compositions.
     
    HOT PALM SPRINGS - Carlo Colombo 2018
    Dreaming of California, from Hollywood to Malibù, roaring by Sunset Boulevard on a vintage cabriolet. Moreover, the charm of the villas in Palm Spring, an oasis of luxury and wellbeing in the American desert. These sceneries inspired Carlo Colombo in the realization of the Hot Palm Springs sofa: a comfortable and elegant piece of furniture, an invitation to conviviality, pure design blending with meticulous attention to details. The backrest is slightly reclined and defined in a horizontal seam recalling the elegant seats of convertible cars running on the streets of California, and the Sixties are back in the dwelling experience. Designed as a modular system, Hot Palm Springs can be assembled in customized layouts and it’s available in the monochromatic version or in the refined variant with contrasting profiles.
     
    HARD DRESS - Piero Lissoni 2018
    Design calls for fashion and Hard Dress is born, the chair with the nail. The zipper of the most famous jacket from the roaring Eighties inspired Piero Lissoni in the reinterpretation of M330 and 331 armchairs; the leather upholstery recalls the rock style of Perfecto. The designer brought a renewed expressive force to the seat underlining the geometric profile with a visible two-way zipper that becomes the main decorative feature, other than making the upholstery removable. In a journey through the boldest garments of the past, Hard Dress lands on the ancient atmosphere of ancient China and it’s presented in a retro version in red or blue fabric drawn from the Eastern embroidery typical of the armour of imperial guards from the Ming Era. The stylistic purity of the project is open to different interpretations, only to rediscover sobriety in the variant with armrests and upholstery with inverted pleat, as required by the classical tradition.
     
    WAKU – Nendo 2018
    Perfection is in details and they mirror, it’s appropriate to say, a refined manufacturing challenge. In the collection of Waku mirrors, Nendo defined his detail embedding the mirror surface in the frame. A stylistic exercise stretched to extremes enhancing the graphic rigour of the design and challenging Cappellini’s manufacturing ability. Four sizes, four interpretations of the most narcissistic piece of furniture. The profile, obtained through a black line, continues over the mirror and mark small shelves and a coat rack, in the floor version.

    Held in Paris from Thursday January 18th, the first in a series of scenographic representations decontextualizing CAPPELLINI’s collections.

    A new concept envisioned by Giulio Cappellini in collaboration with Valentina Folli to convey the flexibility and versatility of Cappellini’s collections. Especially in home design.

     

     

    CAPPELLINI brings "Cappellini Goes Barocco" to Paris, held from Thursday 18 January in the spaces of its showroom in Boulevard Saint-Germain, reinterpreted through a reinterpretation of the splendour of the '600 between present and past, minimalism and opulence, visual arts and lifestyle. An alternation of styles, languages, suggestions.

    A tactile, visual and sensorial journey that, playing on contrasts and excesses, presents a new concept of living by CAPPELLINI. The collections of the brand interpreted by the designer and set designer Valentina Folli are de-contextualized up to the absurd and immortalized in moments of domestic life, to tell their multifaceted nature. The rigorous and hyper-contemporary forms of the company's projects reveal a new identity in the approach to the different expressions of Baroque culture.

    "Cappellini Goes Barocco" is the first of a series of representations that will interpret Cappellini products in a way that is always different and contrasting to express its versatility, the maximum expressive eclecticism and the transversal nature of the residential area.

     

    Strongly endorsed by Giulio Cappellini, this project is a wealth of cinematographic references and a tale about modernity. Four scenes displayed with meticulous attention to details reveal the spontaneity of daily life and everyday actions inviting the public to take part to an extraordinary scenographic representation. It’s the storytelling of a lifestyle borrowing decorative details and aesthetics from different Baroque styles.

     

    “Cappellini Goes Barocco” is not just a mannerism but a concrete demonstration of the flexibility of the company’s collections. Classic elements of Baroque, such as chandeliers, brocades, mirrors, majolica, stucco, allegories, were renewed in destructured settings to reinvent tradition between ephemeral, oneiric and impressions.

     

    The four areas are the result of a game of contrasts, risk and irony. The collections by CAPPELLINI are assimilated into any context without giving up their identity. Lively, real and spontaneous scenes become a set to peek into with a sort of sophisticated voyeurism, photographs stolen from an intimate domestic life.

     

    In one scene, CAPPELLINI’s showroom turns and opens onto the colours and the flavours of the Mediterranean inspired Terrace of “Cappellini goes Barocco": a sensory space weaving together outdoor and indoor with the extraordinary beauty of majolicas from the ancient tradition. On this pattern, the pieces signed by CAPPELLINI come to life in an invitation to relaxation and positivity. The atmosphere of the Winter Garden is definitely more intimate. Inspired by the British style, it recalls Victorian settings in a contemporary language. Green tones are darker, the rigour of the furniture leaves room for some mannerism. A secret garden, a space for reading and leisure, to be lived with pleasure in mind.

     

    The project continues with the Dining Room: the tones are more heated, the most important furnishings and the imagery goes to still lifes and Flemish painting. After dinner, the Drawing Room is dedicated, a masculine environment that recalls the rooms of music, games and hobbies. Leisure activities are also represented in the choice of the shapes and colors of the furniture: indigo meets the sage green, the blues are revived in reds and oranges.

    CONFLICTING AESTHETIC FOR THE HARMONY OF COZY AND CONTEMPORARY ROOMS, READY TO FURNISH HOMES WORLDWIDE.


    On the occasion of Imm Cologne 2018 – The International Interiors Show, CAPPELLINI presents a selection of its most recent products. As seen at the last design week in Milan, the Italian brand plays with combinations and juxtapositions of multiple aesthetic languages, often conflicting with each other, but confirming the attention of the brand towards the most innovative expressions of interior design, fashion, art and communication.

     

    The space where CAPPELLINI is displaying its products evokes metaphysical architecture, populated by animals and plants immersed in dreamlike atmospheres from great tales and painted with a vibrant alternation of pastel shades. A perfect setting for the colour palette of the furniture that in 2018 reminds Flemish paintings, from Van Dyck to Rubens. Alternating dark and bright colours, from light blue to burgundy red, from dull orange to warm beige.

     

    The Mill Home sofa by Giulio Cappellini and Hobo Contract by Werner Aisslinger & Tina Bunyaprasit stand out in the collection: contemporary upholstered furniture adjusting to different functions and architecture contests. For public and private spaces, Embroidery Simple, an essential decorative evolution of the Embroidery chair designed by Johan Lindstèn. For the international allure, the Stay table by Fermè and the matching Normal leather seats that can be combined with any type of tabletop thanks to their formal rigour.

     

    Glossy lacquered finishing and endless original colours, Easy and Flexi Container are a series of cabinets to be used alone or in combination for the living room, bedrooms and office.

    What clearly emerges is absolute expressive freedom and the harmony of contrasts that contribute to creating cozy and contemporary rooms, ready to furnish homes worldwide.

    Collections:

     

     

    MILL HOME / designer: Giulio Cappellini

     

    Giulio Cappellini thought about the Couchsurfing of the Millennials around the world while designing this system of upholstered seats with removable covers featuring clean and soft lines. The basic elements can be freely combined with beanbags, backrests and armrests of different sizes and heights, central and double sided allowing different composition fitting any space and need. A flexibility heightened by the broad palette of finishing, solid colours for the sofa and many diversified patterns for pillows, from the geometric animalier to stripes and batik.

     

    HOBO CONTRACT designer: Tina Bunyaprasit & Werner Aisslinger

     

    Same versatility and endless combinations for the Contract version, with a reduced depth of the seat compared to the Home sofa.

    Simple and versatile refinement features in this enveloping and soft looking seat. The comfortable backrest forming a convex semicircle rests on a curvilinear and swivel base available in a broad range of colors, in fabric or leather from the Cappellini collection. An exotic and ironic version with a large embroidery of a tiger on the backrest completes the series.

     

    STAY / designer: Fermè

     

    Lightweight at the sight, robust in the structure. The Stay table features a precious marble top in white Statuario or black Marquinia other than fine wood to combine with thin legs made of tapered tubes of lacquered steel available in white or black with matte or chrome finishing.

     

    NORMAL / designer : Studio Cappellini

     

    Rigor and romanticism: accurate design meets emotion aesthetics in this new seat without armrest, characterized by a delicate rose in full bloom embroidered in countless shades of pink and green on the backrest. Available in leathers from the Cappellini collection.

     

    EASY / designer : Studio Cappellini

     

    Series of 20 low and high cabinets for the living room, with doors, drawers or open compartments, characterized by an extreme visual lightness. Different closing tops are available: lacquerd, veneers, marble or lacquered crystal.

    FLEXI CONTAINER / designer : Studio Cappellini

     

    Flexi Container is a series of cabinets that can be used alone or in combination; they are available lacquered or veneered, with leaf and flap doors, drawers and open partitions and are suitable for the living area, the sleeping area and the office. Elements allow both freestanding, on adjustable feet or metal base, and hanging compositions. Composable elements can have the inside in macroter lacquer or in melamine desert color and the top both of 0.50 and 0.75 inches thick; compositions offered already complete have the inside in melamine desert color only; their tops are available only 0.50 inches thick. The entire range is available in two depths, 17.75 inches and 23.50 inches (hanging elements 11.75 inches and 17.75 inches only) and can be completed by several kinds of handles.

     

    LUCE / designer: Giulio Cappellini & Antonio Facco

     

    A combination of knowledge, creativity and sensitivity, experimenting with new possibilities of material in compliance with the simplicity of design. Volumes enhanced by transparency, colours and shades of refractions in this new table collection of different heights made of extra-clear stained laminated glass available in three sizes.

     

    DRUM TEEN/ designer Mac Stopa

     

    A new version reduced in size for the acclaimed armchair introduced last year and inspired by hexagonal electric drums from the 1980s. A new element enriching a collection which already comprises the large seat, a table and a beanbag available in two different sizes. Stating the strong personality of its geometric lines each piece can be used individually or combined in modular combinations of multiple shapes for an unconventional space definition. Among the several upholstery available in the collection, the rock-and-roll colours such as turquoise, orange, yellow, white and black are the best fit for the Drum armchair.

     

    KOEDA / designer: Nendo

     

    Metallic cloth hanger with the shape of a parallelepiped with open lines and precise geometry fragmented by an irregular hanging branch. A full base sharply defines the space but doesn’t weigh down the color that may be solid or combined in alternation with black, white, pale shades of blue, pink and ecru.

    softness, expressly meant for the Millennials, their social multiculturalism and functional aesthetic but most of

    all their Couchsurfing nomadism.

    can be freely combined with backrests and armrests of different sizes and heights achieving several variants

    and compositions fitting any space and need. A skilful combination of ergonomics and gracefulforms, a

    synthesis betweenmaintenance simplicity and desire for individuality.The power of following trends without

    stifling the wish of a customized space

    Meanwhile, EUROJERSEY is making MILL HOME even more special dressing it with its exceptional fabrics

    featuring the warp kint patented technology of SENSITIVE® FABRICS by EUROJERSEY, an ideal

    combination of adaptability and performance to match the equation “Quality + Aesthetic + Functionality” of

    new generations. Moreover, SENSITIVE® FABRICS maintain their shape and non-pilling quality even after

    several washing cycles. Their special textile structure is a mix of nylon and lycra® making them compact, light

    and ultra-thin; thanks to their smooth homogeneous surface the colours are particularly brilliant while printing

    Contradictory Combinations
    Cappellini is reinventing its absolute contemporary style at Milan Design Week, to be held in April 2017.
    From graphic to products, from installations to materials, it’s a matching game of juxtapositions between
    distant aesthetic languages asserting the dedication of the brand to most recent trends of fashion design,
    art and communication.
    Faraway worlds joined by their free spirit, a rational chaos hiding a subtle and literate coherence. The
    communication designed by Antonio Facco is a tale of surreal landscapes with unusual perspective made
    of landscape drawings overlapping photographic pictures of the products.
    Obvious references to the colours of Luis Barragan and Henry Rousseau in the magical outdoor installation
    populated by animals and plants. The magic of dreams draws a parallel between East and West cultures, a
    contrast reprised in the products combining with ease the pure and ironic lines of Nendo, Jumpei and Iori
    Tamaki together with the clean and sharp signs of Bakery Studio.
    Giulio Cappellini illustrates the 2017 Collection at Cappellini Point blending accuracy and passion in a
    rotation of neutral shades and blaze of colours and decorations. Unusual yet measured combinations
    making balance a priority over an entirely matching yet unimaginative look.
    A wide variety of materials celebrating freedom of expression, some borrowed from faraway worlds of
    interior design, others blending industrial products and high-quality craftsmanship hang in balance between
    future and restoration of the past.
    Constant innovation and will to be amazed are thoroughly encoded in the DNA of Cappellini that has
    always been on the path of customization and today more than ever before customers are asking for the
    fullest possible degree of freedom to express their customs and traditions.
    Within the showroom in Via S.Cecilia, the company reinvented dwelling according to its own principles of
    freedom blending graphic pieces with products popping out with their warm and modern palette of colours.
    Green and orange shades matching with nonchalance natural colours such as beige and sand. A clear
    evidence of how the products by Cappellini are ready to turn any place around the world in a sophisticated
    and cosmopolitan home. Contrasting combinations represent the freedom of contemporary culture distant
    from stereotypes that don’t belong in the world anymore.

    THE HIGH FURNITURE DESIGN FURNISH THE VIP DESK AND LIVE ARTISSIMA THE INTERNATIONAL FAIR OF CONTEMPORARY ART

    Cappellini is back to Artissima. The 23rd edition of the International Contemporary Art Fair is going to be held in Turin from the 4th to the 6th November, asked Cappellini to furnish the on-access and the crediting area of the special guests, Artissima Live in the parterre of the Fair and the area reserved to press and social media, also used as a "television studio" for interviews and video footage.
    Cappellini, which produces furniture of the finest quality always in the sign of Made in Italy , has once again welcomed the invitation, realizing two spaces that showed some of the most interesting examples of contemporary design, without neglecting the function planned for those spaces. The Company chose the Cloud libraries matchig them with the Frac armchairs for the VIP Desk: their soft and sinuous forms will give a feeling of welcome and warmth. The modularity of Cloud combined with the comfort of Frac, make it the perfect space for a short stop and the withdrawal of all the useful materials to know and visit in depth the Fair.
    For "Artissima live", a space dedicated to information of officers and even video interviews, Cappellini wanted to recreate an optical lounge in black and white, choosing the visual impact of the brand new Drum armchairs, with all the strength of their infinite geometric configurations, enhanced by the elastic fabric in geometric print twith a 3D black and white effect. Next to a series of square tables Fronzoni '64, also in black and white, the red shiny Mr.B seats in order to break the optical illusions. Here and there the little Bong tables have been placed, scattered all round the space.
    For Cappellini returning to work with Artissima is a wonderful opportunity to raise the awareness of contemporary design to more people. Creating new ways of living space is always a way to make art, because it is also an expression of thought, fantasy and reality.
