Living room, personality showcase

Furniture in the living room, the showcase of the home and the personality of those who live there

Choosingliving room furniture is a very important step in defining your home. It can be a challenge, a defining moment, a quirk; it is certainly a way of getting to know each other because each living room has a soul and personality that reflects that of those who live it every day.

The living room is the area of the house where, in general, people like to spend their leisure time in absolute relaxation in the home: whether it is watching a good movie, reading a good book or simply chatting on the sofa, the living room furniture must be able to meet these needs by making the space it occupies usable and comfortable at the same time. It is an interplay between aesthetics and functionality, judged by light, where all the elements that make up the furniture of a living room play a key role: from the position of the furniture, to the upholstery one intends to use to, even and especially, the colors one chooses.

The style of a living room depends on the character of the person living in it, but at the same time it gives character to the whole room. And when it comes to character, Sag ’80 has been able to identify and include among its offerings products that make character and incisiveness their signature.

Two designers, two objects with surprising character.

Apollo by Maxalto, designed by Antonio Citterio, is more than just a sofa: it is the rigor of form that becomes a sinuous embrace in Antonio Citterio’s design that also reveals much of his personality. Blitz by Mario Bellini, for B&B Italia, is a work of contemporary art, a flash of light that bursts into a living room revolutionizing its perspective: it is table, bridge, work of art. It is vision.

 

Apollo by Maxalto, the quantum leap for the living room

Can a curve be rigid, soft, strict and cozy at the same time? The answer is yes.

The answer is Maxalto’s Apollo, the 2019 proposal of three different types of sofas designed by Antonio Citterio.

Strict lines and soft, welcoming curves-this is the idea that drives Apollo and made it instantly loved.  Its forms, which play in the space between the curvilinear and the straight line, achieve a balanced and harmonious aesthetic.
It is a sofa with deep, cozy upholstered seats, made comfortable by the use of generous padding and the use of anatomical shapes that seem to call for embrace and comfort. From a technical point of view, Maxalto’s Apollo is footless and has a steel and solid wood structure that also plays into the dichotomy that guides its entire construction: the fullness of wood and the lightness of steel dialogue on the road to functionality, comfort, and beauty.

Yes, because Apollo is a beautiful sofa capable of imposing itself in a living room without weighing it down but managing to interpret, without smearing, the concept of contemporary elegance, a search for intimacy without sacrificing style.

Apollo is able to embody multiple roles, suggesting different emotions: a warm and intimate yet chic and sophisticated living room.

 

Blitz, a light sculpture, and Mario bellini’s lightning strike

Blitz more than just a table was a lightning strike that went from my mind to my hands and through pencil to paper.

Mario Bellini

 

Blitz is the latest ‘effort’ by Mario Bellini, immediately loved and produced by B&B Italia. What is Blitz? It is concretely a table, but inside it hides a whole world, a whole poetics that explodes at every glance. Its outer structure is flat, thin, straight and geometric, and is grafted onto an inner structure that is instead sinuous, dynamic and conceding. It is a struggle between straight and curved lines in which, in the end, the concept of aesthetics itself prevails: Blitz seems to be a bridge suspended and under construction.

Even the material chosen is intended to send a new message: the entire figure of Blitz is in fact made of bamboo wood, an absolute novelty for B&B Italia’s productions, a versatile wood capable of ennobling in this case the intrinsic characteristics of the object thanks to the solid wood processing. The whole realization is a synthesis and mirror of the best practices of design, engineering, and high cabinetry: it is the magic of craftsmanship inventing new paths.

Blitz’s exterior surface dialogues by contrast with its interior: the light-colored top yields like an origami from the dark soft shellac-effect wood finishes, creating light and shadow.

At 10 feet long by 95 inches deep, Blitz can be a dining table, a desk in a prestigious office, a welcome and representative table for a large space.

It is in its relationship with the occupied space that it is at its best: it becomes a theater, a place where a story can be told in shades, shadows and light. It is an object with a powerful stage presence but not in terms of invasion but in terms of defining space.

A space defined with elegance, class and style. A Blitz, a flash breaking into the room.
