Fasten your seat, belt!

TRIBECA
Fasten your seat, belt!

Tribeca takes us back in time with a modern reinterpretation of classic Sixties patio chairs made from steel and woven material. Tribeca is an outdoor seating collection that draws inspiration from childhood memories of summer: a sunlit Mediterranean square where children play, while a woven chair throws shadows of its cords onto the cobblestones. A true icon, revisited with new materials: a steel frame, combined with the elasticity of a profile in vertically-woven plastic material that is remarkably durable, easy to clean and colourful.

SOUL

SOUL
Pure creativity

“Soul is a link between the concrete and the abstract, between the real world and that of dreams, between past and future... the unspoiled state of creation” (Eugeni Quitllet)
The concept of Soul stems from the idea of creating a chair using a blend of age-old methods and cutting-edge techniques, allowing tradition and innovation to evolve seamlessly. The result is a hybrid of nature and technology: the hand and the machine work together, almost like a test of creativity, firmly away from the clutches of artificial intelligence...

The concept of Soul stems from the idea of creating a chair using a blend of age-old methods and cutting-edge techniques, allowing tradition and innovation to evolve seamlessly. The result is a hybrid of nature and technology: the hand and the machine work together, almost like a test of creativity, firmly away from the clutches of artificial intelligence. Soul expresses an idea of uncontaminated creativity, without the ornaments that would conceal its true nature. Defined by its soul, the whole structure is joined together by an almost invisible seat. The ash structure of Soul has a minimalistic, flowing silhouette, characterized by a harmonious interplay of curves and subtle lines. The ergonomic polycarbonate seat appears suspended, clasped by the skeleton, almost like an embrace. Soul is the result of design research that involves both forms and materials, and offers a superbly comfortable chair with visually striking appeal.

REMIND
Between mind & heart

Remind, or call back to mind - a concept rendered in Latin by the word ‘re-cordis’, meaning ‘to pass through the heart’. (Eugeni Quitllet)
Mind and heart have been both essential to create Remind: the heart in its creation and the mind in its production. While evoking the soft sinuous curves of wooden chairs from the late nineteenth century, Remind’s organic silhouette recalls "something never seen before”, a universal shape able to fit into any space and style of decor...

Mind and heart have been both essential to create Remind: the heart in its creation and the mind in its production. While evoking the soft sinuous curves of wooden chairs from the late nineteenth century, Remind’s organic silhouette recalls "something never seen before”, a universal shape able to fit into any space and style of decor. The result is an innovative polypropylene armchair, in which each element is conceived to ensure total comfort and cosiness. The breathable texture makes it airy and even lighter. Made from injection-moulded polypropylene, the armchair is functional and versatile, perfect for both outdoor and indoor spaces.

#Pedraligoodideas at Salone del Mobile 2018

16/04/2018

From 17 to 22 April, Italian furniture brand Pedrali will be showcasing its latest collections at the 57th Salone del Mobile in Milan with the #Pedraligoodideas setting (Hall 10, Stand B19-C28) designed by the Milanese architectural studio Calvi Brambilla. Drawing inspiration from an object as charged with meaning as the light bulb, Fabio Calvi and Paolo Brambilla studio pays tribute to the Italian company's "latest good ideas" with an installation that is both a museum display and a product dramatisation.

From 17 to 22 April, Italian furniture brand Pedrali will be showcasing its latest collections at the 57th Salone del Mobile in Milan with the #Pedraligoodideas setting (Hall 10, Stand B19-C28) designed by the Milanese architectural studio Calvi Brambilla. Drawing inspiration from an object as charged with meaning as the light bulb, Fabio Calvi and Paolo Brambilla studio pays tribute to the Italian company's "latest good ideas" with an installation that is both a museum display and a product dramatisation.

The light bulb takes on an iconic dimension with a twofold communicative and architectural element, forming the leitmotif of the entire installation.

The 800 sq.m stand forms a single, highly architectural volume, marked by longitudinal and circular openings strung with light bulbs. The effect is that of a museum itinerary through seven spaces displaying the brand’s latest collections. Drawing Inspiration from the world of art, architecture and theatre, the entire stand is accentuated with refined elegance.

The theatre, in particular, is spectacularly evoked by square, round and rectangular platforms edged with iconic light bulbs, where “director” Pedrali will stage a brand new show featuring the company's latest products. Just as the leading actress puts the final touches to her look in the privacy of her dressing room, so the products are reflected in large mirrors, as if preparing to go on stage.

Divided into seven areas the 100m exhibition itinerary, where visitors can discover Pedrali’s 2018 new collections, is comprising an actual foyer as well. The result is a simple yet refined, setting which is truly captivating.

The architectural space is dominated by the colour blue, as a tribute to the works of the artist Félix González-Torres. This light colour is also a clear reference to the company's two-year advertising campaign.

In Pedrali Good Ideas, product dramatisation is made even more interactive by subtle references to the world of peep-shows, where visitors can look at real life dance performances staged around some of the brand's most iconic products through peepholes.

A new collaboration at Pedrali: Eugeni Quitllet

13/04/2018

It is a great pleasure for Pedrali to welcome Eugeni Quitllet, one of the most representative names in the contemporary design panorama. The Spanish designer is collaborating with the company on the occasion of the 57th edition of Salone del Mobile. The new artistic and design partnership is being realized with the manufacture of two new products, the result of a stylistic research capable of involving shapes and materials.

Pedrali chooses Eugeni Quitllet as the brand is fully sharing his philosophy: the products designed by the Spanish who is winner of the award "Designer of the year" in 2016 originate from the research for emotions and are inspired by the desire to make something that will last over time, both concretely and stylistically, a strong point and indispensable requirement for the Italian company's products.

The partnership is therefore born of a mutual enthusiasm, as Quitllet states: «the desire to create something new with different materials, which had a history and values, arose after a first meeting two years ago. The strength I saw in Pedrali was the intensity and the desire to realize this dream together».

Born in Ibiza in 1972, Eugeni Quitllet graduated at Llotja Art School of Barcelona, he loves to define himself as disoñador, a neologism that derives from the union of the words designer and soñador. His activity is mainly aimed at the world of industrial design and among his creations there are objects characterized by the combination of elegance and sinuosity. His gaze is oriented to the future and his inclination leads to the creation of objects-sculptures able to play on the empty-full contrast.

Quitllet has received numerous awards and recognitions at international level, such as the Good Design Award, the Red Dot Design Award, the German Design Award, the special mention of the Compasso d'Oro and, in 2016, the designation of Designer of the Year on the occasion of Maison & Objet.

On the occasion of the 57th edition of Salone del Mobile, Pedrali is pleased to inaugurate a professional partnership with the designer Luca Casini through the launch of a new product designed for the Italian company.

Regarding the product designed for Pedrali, Casini states, «we have worked on a linear and simple shape but with meticulously modeled details, which confer richness to the product and a resistant structure. It is a kind of product that is intended to last over time».
