“e la nave va”, the project styled by Atelier Oï, is the result of extensive studies and a constructivist approach. The structure of the sofa consists of a system of visible slats drawing inspiration from the hulls of wooden vessels, and elastic ribs supporting the cushions, which are anchored to two wooden rails suspended on stylish aluminium feet.
“e la nave va” is a vibrant project, which interacts with those who use it in a marvellous balance between formal elegance and ergonomics. The textile belt that keeps the structure together distributes the loads evenly and in doing so enables the sofa to adapt perfectly to a person’s body, for enhanced elasticity and optimal sturdiness.
Manufacturing expertise is interpreted by the visible wooden structure, technological excellence finds expression in the refined way the themes of light weight and sturdiness are explored, and the artistic component is revealed by the emotional experience born of an astounding shape.
The confluence of different geometries and the interplay of solid and empty volumes characterise Trigono. This sofa is a mix of sophisticated technical solutions and unwavering attention to details: the fabric of its cushions supports the back and forms a refined laminar pattern in all the collection variations.
Inspired by the ancient craft of origami, Time is the transformation of a simple two-dimensional sheet into an ergonomic three-dimensional shell. The armchair, designed by Alfredo Häberli, consists in a sandwich of glass composites and technological wood. http://bit.ly/Time_armchair_2019
