Salone Internazionale del Mobile 2011: AIRNOVA

• April 7, 2011

12-17 April 2011
Pavilion 6 Stand E 33

From 12 to 17 April the most important furniture fair in the world will celebrate its fiftieth anniversary in Milan: AIRNOVA is taking part in this event and celebrating its success in the high quality sector. This year the AIRNOVA stand has a new location. Cosmit, the organiser of the Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan, has decided to reward the company by moving it from the pavilion in the Modern section to one of the pavilions in the Design section.

This is an acknowledgement of the investments the company has made during the current difficult economic times, which have lead AIRNOVA to complete its product range and innovate modelling but also renew its graphic image and stand design.

AIRNOVA is a craft enterprise specialised in the production of leather and metal chairs for the furnishing sector. Its key features are uncompromised quality, attention to detail, a focus on the exclusivity and uniqueness of forms and production performed entirely in Italy, which guarantees durability and excellent finishes. During the Salone AIRNOVA will present the results of a research project focused on the world of tables: a challenge that lead the company to develop several designs that integrate the extensive collection of chairs in the catalogue and prove the dynamism, desire for growth and vitality of AIRNOVA.

The chair and table pairings are representative of a contemporary lifestyle where function, comfort and durability are only the starting point for a concept of quality whose standards are also based on pleasure and wellbeing. With original designs and precise lines enhanced by select premium materials, AIRNOVA distinguishes itself on the global panorama.

An exclusive table, a minimalist sculpture where functionality and emotion combine and the considerable size of the base complements the lightness of the elliptical top. The statuesque appearance of Halley is softened by the Tebe chair, upholstered in white genuine leather with details in black stitching that complete the design and highlight the upholstery. Matt natural wood and leather: materials for contemporary lines, forms designed for timeless spaces where quality and aesthetics are two sides of the same coin.

A table with a strong personality and presence that complements sophisticated settings: houses with impressive spaces but also executive offices and meeting rooms. The rectangular top and legs are created in extra light glass. An unexpected burst of colour arrives in the hues of the Patchwork Summer chairs: the upholstery is created from small pieces of leather stitched together in harmoniously paired colours that resemble traditional English quilts.

The multifaceted cut of the legs and top gives this table reflections that change depending on the light and its position. Its glossy white lacquer finish embodies the dynamism of the design creating unique shimmers. The Gem table is paired with Alexia, a chair that may appear simple but whose precise design highlights its exceptional craftsmanship.

WM Bookcase
Design Paolo Martinig

Individual, identical lacquered wooden elements are rotated by 180° and joined together, thus creating flexible and dynamic compositions. The design is completed by leather containers that, like drawers, can store papers and small items. Simplicity transforms into movement through graphic design and optical illusions.

An item that, in our fast-paced world, plays on an old time use: the rocking chair, reinterpreted in a contemporary key thanks to modern materials.

JEANNERET armchair
Design Robby and Francesca Cantarutti

The seat is built from leather stretched over a chromed steel frame. Inscribed in a perfect cube, it is an architectural experiment where its designers play with the principle of symmetry. A successful synthesis of design and technique, it pays homage to the master of rationalism: Le Corbusier.
