Clei @ Salone del Mobile
The weight of facts, the value of words
One very obvious characteristic of our time is the confusion between facts and interpretations, between opinions and documentable reality. This may be a danger, or it may be a great opportunity for those who continue to pursue research, experimentation and innovation in design and manufacturing.
Because despite all the noise, the distinction between those who show the way and those who blindly imitate is inevitable - and just as inevitably, the originator of the idea is the one who ends up being recognized as the leader, the one who shows the way and leaves a marks.
General Catalogue: Clei's new project
This is another reason we are proud to present at Salone 2017 our new Living & Young System General Catalogue, the result of years of research and innovation.
As you leaf through, or rather you consult the more than 400 pages that make up the two volumes, we believe you will clearly perceive a concept of living that precedes and inspires our interior design suggestions; an idea of the future that awaits us in increasingly large and crowded world metropolises; a philosophy of modern and contemporary domestic space organization, and along with it, a sociology of being together, of living a life of exchange and relationships in the era of speed and connection.
Products in the spotlight 3XL, Free Extending Living
"This room no longer has walls", said the lyrics from a famous Italian song. The most accurate definition of 3XL is habitat in motion. This movable wall allows you to multiply the uses of a single room, transforming it as if by magic according to time and need: for relaxing, having a meal, working or sleeping - in which case you can choose between a double bed or twin beds.
Just move the central element, which slides on a single wall-mounted rail, to obtain the different configurations:
-relaxing and dining area, with a spacious sofa, a TV and a dining table
-office, with a large desk and a roomy modular bookcase sleeping area with a double bed, two bunk beds, storage compartments, bookcase and drawers
The verbs that describe the functions of the central element are contain, conceal, expand. With 3XL in the middle of the room you will have a living and a sleeping area; concealing the office area will give you more space for relaxing; the table is detachable and can be placed anywhere in the room.
The tagline of this convertible mini-kitchen could be "The home becomes even smarter". Available in the Basic and Plus versions, Kitchen Box is a convertible mini kitchen that can be integrated into the Living & Young System programs.
