Cappellini for Yoox.com 2011


the colors and shapes of fashion take on new forms
in an exclusive piece by  

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.
