Point of reference in the design scene due to the perfect, harmonious proportions and feeling of understated luxury of its upholstery, from 20th to 22nd November Living Divani goes to one of the most Important China’s financial hubs to take part in the fourth edition of Salone del Mobile.Milano Shanghai, the showcase that offers a privileged view on the best of Made in Italy and which represents an unmissable appointment on the design furniture calendar.
With a network of selected dealers covering its large territory, including mono brand showrooms in Beijing and Shenzhen and branded spaces located in the main cities such as Shanghai, the Company based in Anzano del Parco (Como) is consolidating its position in the country thanks to refined and aesthetically sophisticated public, naturally attracted by the unique style, discretion and superb quality that define the brand.
“Living Divani closes an intense year, marked by the celebrations of its 50th anniversary and 30 years of collaboration with Piero Lissoni as Art Director, while focusing on China where Italian style and artisanal heritage have a huge appeal. This year, in addition to a constantly expanding collection, we created the Living Divani 50+30 Book that tells our story in a graphic, playful and emotional way” – says Carola Bestetti, Head of Marketing and Communication at Living Divani. “To celebrate the double anniversary, we presented “The Uncollected Collection”, a 10-pieces limited edition collection signed by Piero Lissoni, for those who looks for objects with a strong identity, between art and design”.
The stand, resulting from the collaboration with the Shanghai retailer H.N.Lin, is conceived as a path among Living Divan’s iconic pieces and latest novelties, with settings and combinations that can offer inspiration for private homes as well as hospitality, office, public and transit space belonging to the increasingly vibrant contract sector.
At the entrance, visitors are welcomed by a dining room – also suitable as an office – dominated by the free and sensual curves of Brasilia table by the Spanish designer David Lopez Quincoces with “cement effect” painted legs and top in Stone Oak®, combined with Rivulet chairs by the Asiatic duo Junpei&Iori Tamaki, where the wooden structure is embellished by a decorative weave in natural hide that becomes its characterizing element.
Clean and simple intersecting lines that balance the visual impact of the whole are the defining characteristics of Sailor, by David Lopez Quincoces, a sort of wall-sculpture, where the airy pace of the vertical posts, with hexagonal section, contrasts with the tighter rhythm of the slender shelves, with top in Stone Oak® and lower part black lacquered. With retrò style references, the mobile bar Aero B by Shibuleru – the design studio founded by Swiss designer Lukas Scherrer – conceals a container through shutter doors that slide along the perimeter, offering a dynamic alternation of full and empty spaces.
The setting is enriched by details such as the pieces of the Carpet Collection and Sin Titulo Collection, both designed by Harry Paul, and the objects belonging to the Styling Project, curated by Elisa Ossino Studio. Minimal lines, impeccable proportions and details perfectly express the whole experience of Made in Italy, and convey the idea of a “Living Divani world” within a casual and cosmopolitan atmosphere, in the sign of a silent elegance able to respond to all tastes and fit perfectly into any environment, minimal or decorative.
