The new Pianca products for the 61st Salone del Mobile were designed by two creatives with lengthy experience in the furniture sector, Pier Luigi Frighetto and Luciano Marson and you can see them at Rho Fiera in a show space designed by Cristina Celestino Studio.
The stand design is inspired by the typical Venetian palazzo, a living space characterized by distinctively opulent finishes, appealing colours and fabric wall coverings, stucco and elegant marmorino. This is the style that Cristina Celestino used to create a striking stand which experiments with the solid and void concept, featuring textile panels, islands of colour and textural references divided into different areas that represent the rooms of a home.
The living room, dining room and bedroom are all there, spaces that show off Pianca furniture in various textures, finishes and colours, separated by completely opaque or semi-transparent fabrics.
This is the cultured, refined display setting for the new Pianca furniture pieces focussed on an idea of comfort and understated beauty, with appealing, contemporary forms and luxurious details, as the result of consolidated manufacturing skill and timeless style.
Creative visionary Pier Luigi Frighetto works with full shapes and soft, curvy lines in his upholstered furniture, producing designs such as the Ella armchair, the Fedra chair and Delano up and Nice sofas, plus the Mambo coffee table collection in three versatile table versions to use as a coffee table in front of the sofa or as a console or side table.
The exacting design vision of Luciano Marson, founder of Pieces of Venice, produced high quality, finely crafted furniture with simple but bold style, such as the Dedalo sideboard, and sculpted, geometric pieces with a focus on textural and visual continuity, like the Enea and Corinto tables: the first is a solid wood table with unusual surface detail that exposes the wood grain on every side, while the second is a marble table with top and legs made of layered slabs cut along the length.
