Everything you need to know, and love, from Salone 2021
Following the lost 2020 show, Salone del Mobile was back in its 60th year to celebrate the latest and most enviable interiors coming out of Italy and beyond.
Here’s everything we’re measuring up for…
Molteni & C
Who doesn’t need a throwback to the golden age of travel right about now? Conceived by Ron Gilad, “Flight D.154.5” features the famous, re-issued Gio Ponti Round D.154.5 armchair in all its mid-century splendour, arranged in a plane-like formation complete with porthole windows.
Caccaro presents “Wallover” – a new system of horizontal and vertical storage units which combine to bring a third, architectural dimension to your otherwise two-dimensional wall. Wallover is available in lacquered, laminated, glass, the stonelike “Kera” and “Oxid”, which has metallic reflections.
Composed of dramatic slabs of lava stone, the Antivol side table by JCP Universe is cut by water jets and fitted with a black chrome or matte gold finished brass stand.
The standout Ukiyo console table takes inspiration from traditional Chinese lacquer design with frisé maple and gypsum featuring ornaments either engraved or in relief – along with a retractable, rotating television!
The maximalist in us is just loving the Salon Nanà Collection – a collaboration between Moroso and designer and architect Annabel Karim Kassar inspired by Émile Zola’s Nana. The modular sofa and alternate styles of side table are intended to convey “a constantly evolving state of mind contrary to everything that is static”.
Swiss appliance maker V-Zug teamed up with Italian furniture maker Turri to create V-Zug Living, where coffee centers, combi steamers and wine coolers can stand freely in furniture units.
A trio of statement chairs
The most conservative of the three, Rio by Gianfranco Ferre Home features demure tones and a bold, enveloping shape with elegant tapering legs. Dinka by Etro Home Interiors steps it up with metallic accents and oversized stitches offset by a classic burgundy leather seat. Or go wild with Shira by Roberto Cavalli, which pairs black leather and a strong silhouette with the brand’s signature animal print.
Where to now
