Bio paints, the new revolution begins at Pedrali

29/01/2018

Pedrali, which has always been committed to environmental sustainability throughout every stage of the manufacturing process, now begins using only plant-derived water-based paints.

The issue of environmental sustainability is becoming increasingly important in the architecture and industrial design sector.

Pedrali, which has always been committed to environmental sustainability throughout every stage of the manufacturing process, now begins using only plant-derived water-based paints.

The issue of environmental sustainability is becoming increasingly important in the architecture and industrial design sector. With a view to offering its customers the best possible quality, Pedrali has seized the opportunity offered by bio-innovation in the paint industry, continuing its path of commitment to enhancing and caring for the environment at every stage of the manufacturing process, which it began years ago.

Formulated with 40% raw materials sourced from “waste” plant substances, these plant-based paints offer durability, chemical- and light-resistance, and industrial usability comparable to classic petroleum-based products, but with a drastic reduction of the fossil-derived component. This allows Pedrali to offer products of the highest quality, fully in line with the most advanced "green policies", in addition to improving the working environment in which these paints are used.

Made from renewable materials sourced from refining processes of waste plant substances, the new paints used by Pedrali guarantee a substantial decrease in VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds), chemical compounds contained in normal paints, which evaporate at room temperature and can cause serious harm to human health, as well as contribute to air pollution. The result is a healthier and less hazardous working environment, since these paints are non-flammable; less air pollution, and vast energy savings, leading to a reduction in CO2 emissions.

The use of bio water-based paints represents yet another leap forward for the company towards environmental sustainability, enabling Pedrali to pursue a path in obtaining important international certifications, and to consistently apply these principles, which are a fundamental part of the Made in Pedrali ethos, to every stage of the production process of its collections, consisting of chairs, tables, lamps and interior accessories.

In this year, Pedrali is taking part IMM, the first international trade fair of the year for interior design to be held in Cologne from 15-21 January 2018.

The Pedrali stand was designed by the Calvi Brambilla studio in Milan: it is sure to wow visitors with its original settings and decorative features inspired by the atmospheres of 1950s home interiors.

Pedrali’s stand is situated inside Pure Editions (Pavilion 2.2. Stand H-006), the section dedicated to premium international design brands; it consists of a central area in which the main colour theme is teal, with tone-on-tone furnishings. Arranged around this area are five alcoves with settings that evoke the American experimental architecture of the Case Study Houses, and typically Fifties modernist elegance.

The space is imbued with a sense of transparency and lightness, and its living and dining areas flow into each other thanks to the partitions, which simulate large floor-to-ceiling windows, alternated with masonry walls, guiding visitors as they discover the Pedrali collections. The exhibition design highlights the versatility of Pedrali’s furnishing solutions, which have the potential to make life easier for people as they inhabit and move around the rooms of a home, making its interiors truly special. 

Giravolta also takes centre stage in the theatrical set piece Magnetic Wireless Hero, designed by the Calvi Brambilla studio as part of the Featured Editions format organized by Stylepark. It offers a “light” take on the medieval tale of St. George and the dragon, with the cables and sockets attempting to “attack” Giravolta which, like the hero battling the monster, crushes its foe while continuing to emit light wirelessly.

Magical and evocative spaces, straight from a fairytale. Warm, cozy colors help create a sense of serenity and warmth, felt on those special occasions in the company of loved ones. Snapshots of the festive season, with enchanting interiors inspired by both tradition - through symbols such as the bedecked tree, holly wreaths and gifts ready to be unwrapped - and innovation, thanks to Pedrali furnishings with their clean, ultra-modern lines.

A dinner table set for a festive meal, cheerfully lit by Giravolta, the wireless lamp inspired by the lanterns of the past. Soft Babila chairs are ready to welcome the guests as they arrive, bringing everyone together for this special holiday. Warm colors, combined with enveloping, comfortable forms create the perfect mood for a Christmas night of festive cheer in good company.

The relaxed, homespun spirit of Christmas, the winter season’s most awaited celebration, is also expressed through furnishings: the distinctive characteristics of these elements give them an evocative allure. Social, the modular, composable sofa, is linear and elegant, and has been designed with entertaining in mind. Soft cushions filled with genuine goose feathers enrich a room that’s ready to host memorable moments.

Christmas also means taking a break from everyday life, with time out for rest and reflection. The Babila Comfort armchair or the Log Sofa, with their enveloping forms and generous dimensions, snugly embrace those who want to read a book in the warmth of the fireside.

For kids, these are truly special days, filled with magic and joyful anticipation. Sitting on the brightly-colored chairs from the Snow Junior, in the light of Colette lamps, with dolls and toys all around, they wait impatiently for Santa Claus to come.

Among the protagonists of this edition you can find Dome, a collection of seatings in polypropylene designed by Odo Fioravanti that brings back to mind the glorious tradition of the bistrot chairs. The same designer for Babila, a chair able to move along tradition and innovation. Symbol of versatility and functionality, Fox, designed by Patrick Norguet, is an elegant collection of armchairs with a distinctive character. Nym, by Cazzaniga Mandelli Pagliarulo, is a collection made of solid ash wood which reviews English traditional Windsor chairs with a contemporary style. Volt, designed by Claudio Dondoli e Marco Pocci, with its pure volume and its well defined lines, ensures functionality and comfort in each context.

Bohem La Stazione and Pedrali, a mix of history, tradition and innovation

28/09/2017

A place with a magical and evocative atmosphere in an exceptional setting: Iseo lake and Franciacorta vineyards, reinterpreted by the skills and the creativity of Ernesto Pigni, Scenographer and Interior Designer.
The reclamation of a historic place like the enchanting Paratico-Sarnico railway station aimed to  convert a public space into a captivating and comfortable setting such as a private house.

A place with a magical and evocative atmosphere in an exceptional setting: Iseo lake and Franciacorta vineyards, reinterpreted by the skills and the creativity of Ernesto Pigni, Scenographer and Interior Designer.

The reclamation of a historic place like the enchanting Paratico-Sarnico railway station aimed to  convert a public space into a captivating and comfortable setting such as a private house.

An avant-garde concept, heart of three different activities: the Flower Boutique, the Coffee Bar and the Confectionary Shop, perfectly harmonized with the Pedrali furnishings. The seats, the armchairs, the tables and the outdoor products meet a changing need while respecting the history and the tradition of the place. A mix of innovation and cutting-edge technology research.

For the Coffee Bar and the comfortable entrance hall client selected the versatile and refined Tweet armchairs along with the soft and comfortable Log upholstered armchairs. These seats in velvet and personalized colours are in perfect harmony with the enviroments. The atmosphere is even more special thanks to the light from Giravolta, the wireless lighting inspired by lanterns of times past.

The featured decorativism of Bohem La Stazione is emphasised by the recovery of traditional  elements from Milan houses in the 1920s and 1930s. The sculptural faux marble decoration of the stairway, the graffitis in the entry hall, the used fabrics like velvet, the colours selection in fact recall the richness of the living rooms of that era and let customers feel as they were part of that historical period. Original details of the epoch were added: the grit of the floors, the big interior and exterior doors and windows, the staircase made of the typical Sarnico stone, the railings and the height of the ceilings.

Pedrali’s outdoor products reflect the colours on the old exterior facade “graffiti” of the Station. Nolita is a family of outdoor seats evoking the origins of a historic course, started by Mario Pedrali in 1963 with his first metal garden chairs. Chair with low backrest, completely made of steel and designed specifically for outdoor use. Table with four legs made of steel tube to ensure the greatest strength and durability. A collection confirming its summer time appeal, to enjoy relaxing and convivial moments in the open air.

In this place full of energy and history you will experience a modern way of tasting and shopping surrounded by a wide variety of plants and flowers from all over the world, lost in décor elements coherent and minimal.

“Fili d’erba” has been declared as winner of the “Iconic Award 2017

21/09/2017

Fili d’erba”, Pedrali new automated warehouse, projected by CZA - Cino Zucchi Architetti, has been declared as winner of the “Iconic Award 2017” in “Architecture” category. “Fili d’erba” aims to be a specific response strongly related to the environment, a visual pattern facing up the different conditions of the surrounding countryside.

Fili d’erba”, Pedrali new automated warehouse, projected by CZA - Cino Zucchi Architetti, has been declared as winner of the “Iconic Award 2017” in “Architecture” category. “Fili d’erba” aims to be a specific response strongly related to the environment, a visual pattern facing up the different conditions of the surrounding countryside.
All four sides of the warehouse are faced by  aluminium panels that generate a visual pattern, like gigantic "blades of grass" that give rhythm, scale and measure to the blind surface of the facades.
The dull and uniform volume is thus transformed into a visual phenomenon rich in variations, a kind of natural "amplifier" of the time of the day and the seasons.
The award ceremony will be held in the BMW Welt during the Expo Real in Munich on 4 October 2017.
