9000 by Tito Agnoli
Born in Peru to an Italian family, Tito Agnoli built his career as an architect alongside Gio Ponti and Carlo De Carli. In the early 1950s, he moved a large part of his professional activity to the field of design, winning the Compasso d’Oro award at the Neocon in Chicago and boasting numerous mentions at the Compasso d 'Oro. Some of his works are part of the permanent collection of the MoMA in New York.
At the end of the 60s he began to create small and versatile furniture, designed for compact and multifunctional domestic spaces. 9000 is a series of small seats that offer multiple possible combinations. The small footprint and easy modularity make it the ideal solution both for multitasking domestic spaces and for collective environments. The modules are composed of an armchair, an element with an armrest, without armrests, angular, curved and pouf.
BANAH: Luca Nichetto design
Luca Nichetto founded a multidisciplinary studio in Venice specializing in industrial design, product design and design consultancy. Immediately became the protagonist of important collaborations with a multitude of brands and organizations, he subsequently opened a second studio in Stockholm. Today the studio works with international brands and clients, boasting an experience that touches all disciplines and phases of design: from design to production processes.
Born as a personal tribute, Banah's bold and iconic design celebrates the long and rewarding collaboration between Luca Nichetto and Arflex.
Its irregular and completely asymmetrical shape finds perfect balance in an organic and apparently spontaneous formal approach and designs a seat at different depths. The thin metal legs highlight the floating effect, while a seam separates the upholstery into two surfaces, a smoother base in contrast with the curves of a soft and fluffy back. The Banah sofa is a surprising object, extremely comfortable and capable of enriching the character of any environment.
SUPPLI’: Luca Nichetto design
A name that is all a program: the armchair designed by Luca Nichetto is an invitation to happiness. The sinuous design suggests comfortable relaxing moments, while the precise study of the details makes the Supplì armchair an unforgettable object. Thin metal legs support the seat and the shell is available in two variants: the first is a simple and integrated shape, the second is divided into two parts that can also be combined in mix and match tones.
BEL AIR: Claesson Koivisto Rune design
Claesson Koivisto Rune is an internationally renowned Swedish multidisciplinary studio active in the field of architecture and design. The most important architecture magazines not only have dedicated a wide range to the portrait of the Stockholm partnership, and 12 books have been published with the exclusive Claesson Koivisto Rune theme.
With Bel Air, the studio has created an elegant seating system, characterized by proportions that highlight its airy horizontality. The tables that can be integrated with the soft seating elements offer surfaces capable of visually expanding the composition, emphasizing the idea of an Italian "optimistic modernism" of excellence.
TOKIO: Claesson Koivisto Rune design
The Tokio seating system is characterized by soft lines and generous proportions. The volumes, slightly raised from the ground, are connected like real architecture, soft and vary.
The seating family can be grouped in a variety of combinations: from freestanding, like a seating island, to more traditional configurations.
GOYA: arflex design
A tubular shape grafted onto a round base supports the marble top, available in different geometries characterized by soft proportions and curved lines. Goya is an elegant solution suitable for both domestic and hospitality spaces, thanks to the varied composition of this family of tables which includes lounge tables, lounge dining tables, tables of various sizes and heights and service.
MARENCO E MARENCO OUTDOOR: Mario Marenco design
Mario Marenco, Italian actor, humorist and architect known above all for the broadcasts conducted with Renzo Arbore and Gianni Boncompagni, graduated in architecture and opened the Studio Degw, starting his career as a designer of exhibition stands for the most important Italian car manufacturers: from Fiat to Lancia, from Alfa Romeo to Ferrari, then collaborating with the great Italian design brands such as Arflex.
The Marenco sofa is a great classic of Italian design, with its distinct line and wide modularity. Designed by Mario Marenco in 1970, it is still today a great classic of Italian design. The large rounded shapes of the cushions combine resistance and comfort; it is no coincidence that in 2007 Marenco won the Wallpaper Design Awards Best Reissues. Arflex pays tribute to this contemporary icon by also presenting the outdoor version: style, elegance and comfort in the living room as on the terrace.
THRESHOLD: Neri&Hu design
Neri&Hu Design and Research Office is an interdisciplinary architectural design studio based in Shanghai. The studio's international portfolio includes urban planning, architecture, interior design, installation, product design, branding and graphic design. The projects have been recognized by a series of prestigious international awards that span all sectors of design and architecture.
The theme of Chinese culture is one of the main features of Neri & Hu's projects and for the Threshold dividers the reference is to the concept of 'jian', which can be translated as "space" or "interval," but also "room". The Threshold series offers freestanding partitions in which the project plays with the materials (from the rattan mirror to the elegant corrugated glass) and with the structures: the lines of the frame become volumes that house drawers or desks.
