Salone del Mobile 2017: the previews of Design Collection
For the 56th Salone del Mobile, Citco reinterprets the concept of contemporary luxury, adding iconic new pieces to its design collection. The outstanding team of international talents with whom the company has developed its collection of furnishings complements to date is now joined by Ora-ïto.
The French designer has created Venus, a chaise longue with a sinuous, almost anthropomorphic image. Skilfully produced from a single block of marble, the piece stands out for its ability to transmit energy: the surface reflects light, swapping its original coldness for a hint of warmth that almost seems to make it come to life.
The fertile collaboration with the Israeli designer Arik Levy, who has already created several pieces for Citco, continues this year with Mineral Structures, a bookcase extracted from a single stone volume, hollowed and crafted with the finest technologies and then finished by the skilled hands of specialized craftsmen.“
These MineralStructures are an abstract manifest of the mineral and architectural structures that combine visual dynamics and construction. The volumes interact with each-other creating kinetic movement and depth. Resulting with external versus internal spaces, these open-end containers are not only a sculptural expression but also domestic theatre for culture as in books, sculptures, objects and memories”.
