2019 / Driven by a brief requesting sustainability and accountability, Clara is a collection of upholstered armchairs and sofas for British manufacturer Modus. Designed for a circular way of working, the pieces are constructed using four loose cushions within a powder coated metal frame. All parts can be replaced should they become damaged, allowing for a long life-cycle. Everything is crafted from beginning to end in South Somerset, UK.

2018 / The Plural collection celebrates a contemporary version of shared bathing spaces – we call it ’shared intimacy’. PLURAL sinks offer a new ‘experience’ in the lay-out of a bathroom: they can be positioned at different angles on counters and the floor. You ‘interact’ in your space now, and with whom you are there with. PLURAL exalts the concept of color mixing and the non-whiteness of bathrooms, proclaiming that yes, it’s OK TO MIX THINGS UP. (Light grey, beige, anthracite black, mat white and American Walnut all go wonderfully together.) The furniture feeling of its design insures a homey and domestic environment in your new bathroom, a vintage ’salotto’ is more the feeling. New technology feels at home here too: there are 3 innovative ’syphon systems’ which enable PLURAL to be so free.

2017/ I was inspired by the Gio Ponti headboards of the early 60’s, in particular, one from the ‘Hotel Royal’ in Naples. In designing this bed for Zanotta I wanted to achieve a contemporary version of those iconic designs.
The light proportion and shape of the upholstered head and foot boards have a modern vintage mood, including the fabric covered buttons. Those add a domestic touch and recall mid-century contract furniture classics. A clean, visible border detail, tone-on-tone or contrasting, defines the rounded corners on all the upholstery. The extra slim metal legs with tubular supports are also a retro-reference and create a balance with the fabric elements.
The Hotelroyal headboard is available in two sizes. The widest accommodates a geometrically designed side-table which was conceived as an object to ‘adorn’ the bed. It’s the perfect dimension to place your essentials on.
