#PedraliPalaceofWonders at HostMilano 2019

The collections of the Italian company for the hospitality industry

Pedrali, takes part in HostMilano, the world leading trade fair for professional operators dedicated to the world of catering and hospitality, which presents future trends and best solutions for a successful location.
From 18 to 22 October Pedrali, thanks to its experience in the hospitality and hôtellerie industry, presents its latest collections in FieraMilano Rho (Hall 11, Stand A27 A35 B28 B36). The #PedraliPalaceofWonders booth, designed by the Milan based architectural studio Calvi Brambilla, welcomes visitors at the entrance of Hall 11. A contemporary setting with an elegant and minimal style, where people discover a sequence of four rooms with real interiors in which the mood is defined by the products themselves.

The stand covers a surface area of 250 sq.m and has a single volume with a markedly architectural feel; it features longitudinal openings set at a 45° angle that create seamless visual continuity between the inside and out; allowing visitors who are strolling along the corridors to peek in and set off on a journey to discover the “Palace of Wonders”. An imposing entrance welcomes guests in a wide lounge area furnished with pastel coloured seating units from the Buddy collection by Busetti Garuti Redaelli, combined with the low tables of the same collection, which contrast with the warm earthy hue of the floor.

On the right there is a setting that recalls the interiors of a restaurant where the Italian company showcases the new Jazz chairs, combined with Fluxo tables by Luca Casini. This collection’s widening product presented at Host 2019 completes the successful collection of armchairs and stools that furnishes, among others, the Caffé Fernanda inside the Pinacoteca di Brera in Milan, the DoubleTree by Hilton Lingotto in Turin and the restaurant of the Carnoustie Golf Link in Scotland. The harmony of shapes, ergonomics and elegance of this collection characterize the chair, with the upholstered seat and backrest, supported by a light steel structure.

On the left there is an outdoor space with blooming plants on the walls. The key feature of the set is Tribeca collection by CMP Design, which is inspired by the classic Sixties patio chairs made from steel and woven cord.

A hallway separates these spaces from the rooms of the Palace of Wonders, which outline real settings of the hospitality industry, all characterized by a strong graphic sign, a cut, interrupting the composition and leaving space for a rational, explanatory component. The actual elements used for the set – from the floor to the walls, even the decorative objects – have been cut. The goal is to put the focus on the products themselves. The narrative rhythm is also accentuated by the presence of tall green plants that give an escape feeling, interspersing each set.

The first set outlines an elegant environment, like some of the world’s top restaurants. Héra, the armchair designed by Patrick Jouin, which embodies the concept of lightness fusing it with that of comfort and cosiness, takes centre stage. The set is completed by the Inox tables and the Tamara suspension lamps, by Basaglia Rota Nodari.

The next set depicts a bistro with tables and chairs which are arranged both indoors and on the terrace. The ideal solution for providing continuity between indoor and outdoor spaces is Remind, the innovative polypropylene chair designed by Eugeni Quitllet. The Elliot tables by Patrick Jouin, with their organic yet elegant forms, complete this composition. A special version of Remind allows anyone to release their creative energy by decorating and customising the backrest with tiny coloured pixels.

The third room is an urban restaurant, whose architecture recalls the place that influenced this set: the Jamaica collection by CMP Design. Indeed, the chair was inspired by the famous Bar Jamaica in Milan's Via Brera, a legendary hub for intellectuals and artists in the twentieth century.

Folk collection, by CMP Design, is the key feature of the set depicting a modern and welcoming bakery with green walls. The set is completed by Stylus tables and Giravolta wireless lightings by Basaglia Rota Nodari.

Tribeca selected for the ADI Design Index 2019

The armchair designed by CMP Design for Pedrali competes for the Compasso d’Oro 2020

970 products submitted. 226 among them chosen for the ADI Design Index 2019, the selection through which the ADI Design Permanent Observatory gathers every year the best of industrial design. An appointment that has become a point of reference for design quality from furniture to vehicles, from machine tools to communication, without forgetting social design.

The 2019 selection is important because, together with last year's selection, it completes the choices that will be  submitted in 2020 to the international jury of the XXVI Compasso d'Oro, the most prestigious industrial design award worldwide. Two important aspects stand out. The first is the variety of material proposed: there are products from the whole wide range of skills and competences of every Italian region with the common theme of Made in Italy. The second characteristic is the growing attention given to sustainability. This value is now a regular feature of Italian design culture and is reflected in many ofthe selected products.

Tribeca, designed by CMP Design for Pedrali, is one of the products selected for the ADI Design Index. This collection takes us back in time with a modern reinterpretation of classic Sixties patio chairs made from steel and woven material. An outdoor icon, revisited through new materials: a webbing in vertically-woven extruded PVC with a nylon core that is truly durable, easy to clean and colourful, is combined with the solid tubular frame. Handcrafted with the highest attention to detail, this chair is incredibly soft and comfortable and puts a contemporary twist on tradition with its cutting-edge design and quality. The cording is arranged to give a fresh and dynamic sense of rhythm and openness to every version. A successful collection that includes a chair, an armchair, a stool in two different heights, a lounge armchair and a two-seater sofa.

A significant number of the products selected for the ADI Design Index 2019 is exhibited from 14 to 20 October in Milan, at the Leonardo da Vinci National Museum of Science and Technology, and from 22 to 26 November in Rome, at the Casa dell’Architettura, within an installation by Cortesi Design.

Pedrali for “I Maestri del Paesaggio 2019”

For the sixth year running, Pedrali has been partner of the “Landscape Festival - I Maestri del Paesaggio”, the international festival, now at the ninth edition, organized by Arketipos along with the town council of Bergamo, dedicated to the landscape which attracts the best designers and the most interesting expressions of the international landscaping. From 5th to 22nd September the city is at the heart of the landscaping culture and the jewel-square of Bergamo Alta will be once more a stage of nature and beauty.

The theme of this edition is “Pioneer Landscape “, proposed by the Anglo-Italian landscape architect Luciano Giubbilei, an installation that transforms Piazza Vecchia into a space suspended halfway between city and nature, recalling the beauty of spontaneous vegetation. Luciano Giubbilei, three-times Best in Show award-winner at the Chelsea Flower Shop, is known throughout the world for the discrete elegance and serenity expressed by the gardens he designs.

Pedrali outdoor collections decorate Piazza Vecchia, heart of the event in Bergamo Alta: Tribeca chairs and armchairs and Nolita tables, designed by CMP Design, become the protagonists of the Green Square installation.

Getting inspiration from the theme of ”Pioneer Landscape”, the Green Design 2019 is staged in the most impressive sites of Città Alta including the ancient Lavatoio that, through the project Green Lounge - Pedrali at the Antico Lavatoio by Lucia Nusiner, turns into a convivial garden, where furniture and vegetation harmoniously blend with the surrounding environment creating unexpected scenarios. Visitors can sit on the comfortable Tribeca seatings by CMP Design, they can take a break from the daily hustle on Reva sofa by Patrick Jouin or immerse in the magic atmosphere thanks to the light of Giravolta and Happy Apple lamps designed by Basaglia Rota Nodari Architetti Associati studio.

Pedrali is participating in the Il Legno, dalla Natura alle Cose event which involves the main enterprises of the region with the intention of spreading the culture of this material by presenting the exhibition «Mettere Radici, il legno principio di un’economia sostenibile». Into the magnificent sala delle Capriate at the Palazzo della Ragione in Upper Bergamo, reinterpreted by Basaglia Rota Nodari Architetti Associati studio, for the entire duration of “I Maestri del Paesaggio”, it will exhibit a selection of products and projects aim at showing the versatility and uniqueness of a renewable and sustainable raw material such as wood. Among the main protagonists of the exhibition there are Héra, the armchair designed by Patrick Jouin presented at the Salone del Mobile.Milano 2019 and Soul, the armchair by Eugeni Quitllet.

Pedrali products furnish other places of the festival in Bergamo. Elliot and Ikon tables, Tribeca sofas and Ara armchairs furnish the Landscape Corner ispired by the installation Green Square in Piazza Vecchia and they are placed in Piazza Pontida, the Hotel Cappello D’Oro, Piazza Rossa and Piazza Sant’Anna in the Borgo Palazzo neighborhood.

 

CIAM Project: 21st-27th October 2019

On the 70th anniversary of the CIAM, the International Congress of Modern Architecture that in 1949 saw in Bergamo the presence of the world’s most influential architects, including Le Corbusier who defined Piazza Vecchia as “the most beautiful square in Europe”, the Orders of Architects of the province of Bergamo organises a series of multidisciplinary events addressed to the cure of human, the city and the landscape.

Pedrali supports CIAM 2019 which will replicate that extraordinary experience, extending its value and involving all the institutions and representatives of the territory that promote the developing of society through cultural, economics and infrastructural renewal initiatives. It will propose the creation of a “Second Life Grid” in synergy with the ASL | Atlante Second Life, which will show the changes of the work of architects and urban planners following the transformation of urban but also of social, economic and politic conditions.

The proposal, taking inspiration from the work done by Le Corbusier in 1949 and by the ASCORAL (French CIAM group), aims to simplify the critical comparison between projects and their realizations, to establish adequate ways to build and change the cities by starting a major system project that will have intellectual, procedural and regulatory developments in the following years.

The family is completed by two now-iconic lamps: Colette, presented in 2013, a table lamp in polycarbonate that stands out for its sculptural shapes and the colour, and Giravolta, from 2017, an outdoor wireless lamp with a contemporary design. It is easy to carry and its swivelling diffuser allows to direct the light 360 degrees. Inspired by the lanterns of times past, Giravolta is able to create a magical atmosphere.
