RADICE - luxury "Made in Italy"
In a game of contrasts between light and dark, Radice presents a new collection of luxury furnishings of contemporary comfort. Inspired by Art Deco but also by the aesthetics of the Forties...
Sumptuous and refined environments of the Forties in Monaco, or the atmosphere of a movie with Humphrey Bogart: these inspired the new collection presented by Radice, a world leader in the production of luxury furniture characterized by refined design and sophisticated workmanship, strictly Italian-made.
The collection designed by Arch. Alessandro Massari and Studio Radice is characterized by the use of noble materials such as Anigre (quarter figured anigre) , semiprecious stones, leather, bronze, and mainly by excellent craftsmanship which has made Italy, and in particular Brianza, famous all over the world: the rich collection presented by Radice at the Salone del Mobile in Milan, on stage from 8 to 13 April, offers furniture solutions that can be customized to meet even the most demanding requirements.
The new proposals emphasize once again how Radice, now run by the third generation of the family, is able to create a dialogue between the successful tradition of the past and the contemporary language, taking into account design, ergonomic details and style details which made Radice an ambassador in the world of taste and Italian know-how.
Interpreting the contemporary lifestyle, the new collection features a range of chairs, tables, accessories, consoles and cabinets where aesthetic elegance is a mix of contrast between light and dark tones, where full and empty volumes meet realizing a combination of materials, with large areas covered in leather, metal details or semi-precious stones.
