Roberto Paoli has created some new pieces that he will show at Salone next month in Milan.
His new pieces explore the subject of “suspended” lightness in everyday objects: beds, mirrors, bags and even the most institutional of office writing desks designed starting from the drawing of an (almost) invisible structure, which reduces the visual weight of the object leaving the observer with the image of an idea. All this is the result of a crossover approach to design using technologies and concepts that for many years the designer has explored in his variegated projects: from computer bags to the Interiors of numerous sales points, from lamps to bent glass furnishings.
For Sphaus, Paoli has created the Nixon bed with tubular metal structure and wooden frame covered with fabric.
The padded headboard is framed by metal strips and available in the versions compact or with trapeze-shaped elements that “cut” dynamically horizontally across the plane.
Also for Sphaus is the watergate trapeze-shaped freestanding mirror with tubular metal structure. The rear creates a dynamic intangible volume and is modeled to double as a hanger. The structure will be available in different colors and finishes.
The products will be presented at the Fair (Milan Rho Pero, Pav. 12, stand F22) and the Sphaus showroom at Piazza Sempione 8 in Milan April 14-19, from 11 am to 9 pm.
For Tucano, he’s created Youngster, a collection of computer bags in woven nylon microfibre. The bags come in different colors and sizes.
