Salone del Mobile, some trends in shapes, colors, and materials.
The most intense and significant week of the year for Italian (and foreign!) design has just concluded: the Salone del Mobile. With our minds filled with new ideas and inspirations, we’ll tell you about some of the most important trends in shapes, colors, and materials. Are you ready?
CONFIRMATION OF SOFT SHAPES
For a few years now, sinuous and round shapes have been a major trend. For instance, Molteni&C and its artistic director, Vincent Van Duysen, offer the Mateo table, available in a round or oval version with a base featuring a central gap, and the Porta Volta chair with a U-shaped backrest. Flexform surprises with the Supermax sofa (for indoor and outdoor use), while Gallotti envisions a curved scenography to showcase the Key-to-Heaven Fix chandelier.
COLORS INSPIRED BY NATURE
Colors are neutral, with tones of beige, white, and black, punctuated by some bold and rich hues. Green and various shades of red are among the most prominent color variations. They evoke the colors of nature, creating a more seamless connection between interiors and exteriors. Leading design brands have developed outdoor collections. During this Salone, Poliform and Molteni&C showcased their offerings for a comprehensive home design.”
INNOVATIVE, RENEWABLE, AND STONE MATERIALS
Cassina presents a new sofa designed by Patricia Urquiola, Moncloud, which lives up to its name by being incredibly enveloping. It has been crafted to minimize the use of polyurethane and can be completely disassembled at the end of its life. Furthermore, the upholstery and cushions are made from recycled PET.
The majority of Roda’s collection is produced using sustainable and certified materials, such as FSC 100% certified teak (sourced from controlled forests), natural cork, infinitely recyclable aluminum, and straps and cords regenerated from production materials.
Veronica is Jacopo Foggini’s new creation for Edra, made from a single hand-molded polycarbonate weave. Stone takes center stage in the offerings of Baxter and Gallotti&Radice. Finally, a variety of materials come together for a more personalized and unique home.
