HIGHLIGHTS OF THE CASAMILANO
Like many Italian top labels, the story of Casamilano starts in Brianza, where Carlo Turati
launched his own business in 1929 with a small artisan workshop. And it was his son Giuseppe
who had the brains and the guts to let the family business grow into a true industry
and to become one of the most leading Italian furniture companies, working with top designers
like Antonio Citterio. Today, I present to you their latest collection.
Please, to all Italian Design lovers out there: enjoy!
CURVY – ELEGANT LADY WITH STRONG IDENTITY
The Curvy, designed by Paola Navone, is a sofa characterized by an extremely refined, enveloping line, highlighted by soft, elegant curves of the backrest and the seat. With her strong identity, Curvy becomes the protagonist of the space that welcomes it, in both residential and hospitality interiors.
In the long and many-sided career of Paola Navone, she has switched easily between the roles of architect, designer, art director, interior designer, critic, teacher and organiser of events. Therefor Paola herself might be the personalization of Curvy – an elegant lady with a strong identity.
ROCKING THE FLOOR WITH HEAVY METAL
Designer Pietro Russo surely rocks the floor with his heavy metal objects Boomerang and Cartesio! The bookshelf has a strong, minimalist and innovative personality and is enriched with super-refined brass details. The rounded tops, edged in black, give the most beautiful yet bold contrast to the wood.
For the coffee tables applies: details are the design. Look at the handle or the top on two levels, which give Cartesio a great identity, even in a small proportion.
IF YOU DREAM BIG, THE DESIGN WILL BE BIG
The big and beautiful mirror OBLO’ is a huge statement on your wall and will let everyone who looks in it, wonder who’s the fairest of them all. Again heavy stuff by Russo, because of its metal frame and yet very elegant due to the decorative supporting extentions.
Being one the big five in nature, this ‘Elephant’ is certainly a big grayish-brown eye catcher in your own habitat, when presented as an extremely basic and solitary console.
PINK ISN’T JUST A COLOUR – IT’S AN ATTITUDE
‘Vis a Vis’ isn’t just a chair – it’s a conversation piece. Decorated in pink, which isn’t just a colour – it’s an attitude. A new attitude for a new interior season, also supported by the very suitable SuiTable, designed by artist Lia Bosch, who is well-known in and around Milan. Small provocative works, which explore the decoration concept, giving a great personality to spaces that welcomes them.
Artistic sensitivity is once again an indispensable component for conceiving and designing objects and collections that know how to interpret, not only the spaces of our daily life but – above all – the affective spaces of our emotion.
