Being part of a creative universe that defines the present and the future of furniture design is a great honour. GANDIABLASCO took part with the Salone del Mobile at Milan, Italy for another year, celebrating its 58th edition between April 9th and 14th last.
An olive, a symbol of the Mediterranean character of the brand took pride of place over the space, located in Hall 20 Stand B01/C06, designed specially for the Salone where the new designs and extension for some of its existing emblematic collections were presented.
The stand hosted José A. Gandía-Blasco, President and Creative Director of the Gandia Blasco Group, as well as Daniel Germani the new Creative Director of the GANDIABLASCO brand, who shared details of the latest company designs with visitors to the event.
For this edition of the Salone del Mobile GANDIABLASCO presented an extension to the SOLANAS collection, designed by Daniel Germani that included a new finish, Gold. SOLANAS combines elegance, sobriety and the innovative incorporation of Dekton® by Cosentino: a peerless ultra-compact material that is highly resistant and ideal for exterior use.
This modular collection of simple and refined forms has been extended with the addition of a new sideboard, a Cocoon chair, a high table, a mirror and outdoor lights which are also available in the new Gold finish.
DNA TEAK, designed by José A. Gandía-Blasco, was also featured at the Salone with its new version in black, that highlights its warm quality provided by the teak timber that is so characteristic of the overall collection. The use of black marks an evolutionary step for José A. Gandia-Blasco whose work till now has been characterised by the colour white and a reaffirmation of his commitment to quality, sobriety and timelessness.
GANDIABLASCO also took part in the Fuorisalone; the parallel programme that is held outside the Salone’s official venue in different creative spaces around Milan and that has been growing and becoming more important in recent editions. BUIT was presented within the very beautiful surroundings of the gallery space owned by artist and curator Rossana Orlandi. The collection was designed by the Madrid-based Mayice Studio, founded by architects Marta Alonso Yebra and Imanol Calderón Elósegui, for GANDIABLASCO. BUIT is a sculptural collection of modular furniture and includes a simple armchair and a pouffe made of aluminum mesh woven with a special padded textile for the outdoors. The textile tubes used for the pieces were created by Febrik for Kvadrat.
We want to thank everyone who took the time to visit our stand at the Salone as well as everyone who keenly follows the latest GANDIABLASCO news and updates.
We are already looking forward to the 2020 edition of the Salone del Mobile !
