Press-Release

Amsterdam, 8 April 2015

At this year’s Salone Internazionale del Mobile Marcel Wanders introduces exciting brand new beautiful designs and extends existing collections in bold directions, for Alessi, Barovier&Toso, Cappellini, Magis, Moooi, Olivari, Poliform, LG Hausys and Very Wood. His presence is being felt across the entire city of Milan.

New launches:
Allow yourself to be mesmerized by the Perseus Chandelier and Lust Lamps forBarovier&Toso. The Perseus brings together a sense of movement and an explosive array of glass techniques from the extensive history of Barovier&Toso. Take a close look at the Lust Lamps, their decorative glass shades made in the Rigà Menà and Ballotton cut-out technique house a delicate glass artifact covered in gold leaf.

Head over to Cappellini and get comfortable in the Ant Chair, a reinterpretation of classic form with modern ideas and materials. The large comfortable upholstery is lifted up from the floor by a thin, light metal structure, for a luxurious setting. This chair displays a playful yet distinguishing character.

Experience Marcel Wanders' concept of two opposite worlds for LG Hausys. In this space where rational and emotional meet, HI-MACS® becomes a piece of art. Divided into a rational and an emotional zone, the former lays out a clean and geometric meeting space, while the latter exhibits more of a poetic feel. Two imposing slowly rotating ‘Medallions’ dominate the stand. The beauty and versatility of the Solid Surface HI-MACS® is revealed in an unexpected demonstration of the balance between tactile and intangible, practical and magical. 

Take your time to check out the extension of the Cyborg and Troy families for Magis. With its varying upper back parts, the latest Cyborg Chair introduces a seat made of Vienna wicker for an astonishing combination to its polycarbonate base. Upholstery can now also be added to the Cyborg for soft cushioning. The Troy Chair is also becoming more diverse with even more choices of colours and materials.

Be surprised by the dazzling Olivari Crystal collection, expanding the company’s 100 years of history. Hold the door handles that allow you to glimpse unattainable decoration behind precious gems. The handles are made with three metal finishes and in two gorgeous crystal cuts.

Place yourself on the wide assortment of Poliform’s Mad Chair inspired designs making its way to Salone 2015. A full set of seating and tables, including specialized armchairs, will be available in various lavish finishes and materials. The impactful new items contribute to Poliform’s leading tradition in Italian furniture.

Finally, find your way home to Moooi's 1.700 m2 showroom and have a look at the harmonious, airy silhouette of the ‘Charles Chair’, holding its comfy seat in an uplifted posture that gives you a metropolitan feeling. There you will also have an encounter with ‘Arion’, a special edition giant rocking unicorn made of solid wood and adorned in white embroidered leather. The mythical animal enlarges our childhood dreams to grown up size. Discover the new’ Space-Frame’ lighting, a cable-less triumph of architectural lightness and adaptability. And don’t forget to step onto Marcel Wanders’ world of beauty and illusion with the new carpet collection of unique, iconic and breathtaking designs. This all-encompassing environment is framed by a glorious selection of Rahi Rezvani’s artistic photography, in accord with Moooi’s unforgettable presentation style.

Already launched during Maison & Objet in Paris: Alessi and Very Wood
The ‘Dressed’ for breakfast collection by Marcel Wanders for Alessi encompasses porcelain plates, bowls, dishes, biscuit jars, and notably a remarkable jam tray and adorable egg cups, with all the necessary knives and spoons to account for every detail. 

The lace pattern is carved out in the ‘Dressed in wood’ collection using a wood-cut laser technique with hand finish. Items include a cheese and serving board, trays, bowls and a distinguished cake stand with lid.
‘Dressed’ for breakfast and ‘Dressed in wood’ continue the iconic kitchen collection with lovingly sculpted, eye-catching tableware.

Timeless and sensuous, the Very Wood Century collection by Marcel Wanders provides sophisticated seating for hospitality, retail and public areas. This collection has now been extended to include lounge chairs, armchairs, sofas and bar stools. Uniting wicker artisan craftsmanship with the history of Italian chair making, Marcel Wanders' stylizes the Very Wood identity with his design philosophy and recognizable antique legs. Endless possibilities are offered through the range of textiles, finishes and playful back seat knobs.

Would you care for a little fright

Are you fond of white

Meet the family

Do you believe broken porcelain brings luck?  

Do you remember antiques

Sparkly like silver or shiny like gold

Are you afraid of black

What is your favourite book

Videos or books

Do you like your gold shiny?
