Lively new editions
Colorful patchwork and inlaid surfaces in cellulose acetate come together for the Linea containers by Porro. An accurate research in Alessandro Mendini’s archives, conducted with Fulvia and Elisa Mendini, allowed the company to bring to light three new furniture pieces ideated by the designer in 2015. There are a sideboard with open compartment and drawer, a closed version with two hinged doors, and a writing desk with drop-down top and internal partitions, raised on a dark base. The elements, available in a limited series of 50 units, invite free use, completely up to the imagination.
Color is also the star of the Botolo chair by Cini Boeri, designed in 1973 for Arflex and now re-edited and presented in a new version with green legs and yellow ocher fur padding. The legs come in different heights: the high option is suitable for seating in the dining room, the low one for a more contemporary style. The legs also have wheels to move comfortably around different environments of the home scenario.
The transformable and welcoming Zanotta Galeotta was designed in 1968 by Jonathan De Pas, Donato D’Urbino and Paolo Lomazzi – and is now available in a new edition as well. The armchair opens, extends and becomes a chaise longue or méridienne. Entirely made of multi-density polyurethane foam, it has no support structure or internal mechanisms. It consists of three geometric monochrome blocks with an irregular shape that allow for different configurations, for a sitting or semi-reclining position.
