Citco Privé at the Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan
The eternity of marble, the age-old tradition of the Orient For the Salone del Mobile 2017, Citco Privé presents new furnishing complements that become part of the elegant, exclusive collection.
The Verona-based company has explored new frontiers and new forms, welcoming the influence of motifs from faraway lands, in keeping with the fil rouge that has linked the collection to the Orient since last year. In the skilled hands of the master craftsmen of Citco, the static beauty of marble comes alive, becoming dynamic and complex, shaped in a traditional way but rendered incredibly fascinating by an even more sophisticated and innovative spirit.
The ancient art of origami, an evocative game of folds and curves of paper that give rise to extraordinarily complex figures, is the inspirational theme behind the Dama cabinet and the Ginevra table.
The Dama cabinet has been designed for insertion in an exclusive setting. The inlaid doors, glossy finishes and the combination of different materials like marble and brass reproduce the effect of silk in both visual and tactile terms, bringing fluidity and movement to the retro geometric design, and adding lustre to the whole, suggesting a sense of timeless perfection.
Ginevra is a refined table formed by two distinct elements: the top with its classic, traditional look is combined with the rational, elegant design of the total white base, crafted with alternating full and empty zones in a game of simple but never banal forms that generates an image of enduring charm.
Not just furniture: the Citco Privé collection also adds Pavo, a carpet with a lively, exotic character. In perfect “jungle” style, it suggests the forms, colours and features of tropical nature, a rainbow shifted towards bright tones of green, bronze and blue, where peacock feathers become the protagonists.
Shööna, the latest creation of the Citco Privé collection, is a panel of great emotional impact, representing a romantic bouquet of delicate blossoms. The pattern of the panel is composed of slender petals sculpted with exceptional precision, which spread out from the anthers to form a play of folds that conveys an astonishing sense of lightness. This creation combines Statuarietto marble with plexiglass, a material never used before in the collection: the corollas of these flowers, in fact, are lit by inset transparent plexiglass spheres, discreetly anointing them like dewdrops.
The new creations are shown together with many other pieces from the Citco Privé collection presented at previous editions of the Salone del Mobile.
