This year, Area Declic will present these collections for the Salone Internazionale del Mobile 2012 during 17-22 April 2012 in Pavilion 12, Stand C16.
California, design Mino Bressan / Thesia Progetti
Relax: with this spirit was born the series CALIFORNIA, a Chaise longue for sitting around a pool, indoor or outdoor, in a garden or at home, especially the Rocking chair. They are made of technical mesh fabric stretched over the metal structure. Black and white the proposed colours, as is FLORA, presented last year and designed by the same studio. Here’s how Mino Bressan and Donatella Santangelo of Thesia Progetti explain their creations: “We tried to design objects with a life cycle that do not carry them, at the end of their existence, to an incinerator, but rather to a simplified system suitable to reuse their components. Flora and California are related to few and disassembled elements: a metal frame painted with biocompatible materials and totally biodegradable upholstery fabric. The mesh itself is a reusable element resulting in the reduction of composite materials and simplification of the manufacturing system”.
Simple, design Giulio Cianfarra
Lounge literally means living room, but also the background music that you listen while drinking between a chat and other. In many places there is an area furnished with soft chairs on which you can “lounge on”. SIMPLE is “merely” functional: a module that allows you to compose an infinite sofa and, at the same time, it can be a comfortable Rocking chair, occasionally accompanied by a rocking footrest.
Island, Area Declic Design
ISLAND is characterized by a new technology: it is a multipurpose piece made of coated polyurethane, resistant to rain, snow, sun. Above all, it’s soft. The appearance is that of the seats carried out for rotational molding, but it offers unprecedented comfort. Also its shape is unusual – a colourful island at three heights, where adults, old people and children can seat. We imagine this colourful piece in the transit areas to fun in those places that are not places but connections between places, lanes, whose purpose is to connect. Airports, railway stations, shopping centers: ISLAND invites you to rest, but is made to withstand the ravages of time and use.
