Salone del Mobile 2018: new products from Bonaldo
New geometric shapes, colours and materials. In a renovated exhibition area, designed by architect Mauro Lipparini, Bonaldo presents its 2018 collection full of stories and suggestions that anticipate and interpret the evolution of the contemporary habitat.
Tables, chairs, beds, accessories and sofas for a “Bonaldo total living” with a dynamic character, an expression of the brand's constant focus on Research and Development: from identifying new trends for modern and innovative furnishings, to partnerships with young talents and famous international designers. With its 2018 collection, Bonaldo guides us through the discovery of new living dimensions, illustrating cosmopolitan inspirations and influences, keeping its recognisable stylistic trait that ranks the brand as one of the main exponents of excellence made in Italy. Here is a short preview of the products Bonaldo will present at the Salone del Mobile (Hall 5, Booth F01/F05). STONE chair, design Fabrice Berrux
"I have always been inspired by those impromptu seats you find in nature, when you go for a long walk", explains designer Fabrice Berrux. "Sometimes it's a tree trunk, others simply a smooth rock. This is exactly the spirit I embraced when I came up with the design of the Stone armchair".
The influence of nature is quite clear in the silhouette of Stone: a single body that makes up the backrest, seat and armrests, and is solid and welcoming as only the natural elements can be. Available with leather or eco-leather upholstery, Stone comes with four bases, so different from one another that they can transform the overall look of the armchair: the metal bases, made with metal rods or a metal pedestal, give Stone a contemporary and energetic look; on the other hand, the four legs of the fixed or swivel versions are made of ash-wood, for a visually warm and welcoming armchair. Technical data Base: metal (chrome or painted), ash-wood Upholstery: leather or eco-leather Dimensions: W 59 cm, D 58 cm, H 79 cm
TANGLE table, design Dondoli e Pocci
Nature is the central theme in the design of the Tangle table. Indeed, a natural image was the starting point for the design of the base: a tangle of trunks and branches which, carried by the current, run aground along the bank of a river. The aim is to give the impression of a whole that was haphazardly created by the force of nature.
Upon closer inspection, the care and study with which the tubular metal components were put together to form the base of the table emerges. The complexity of the base is then contrasted by the simplicity of the table top, which is rectangular, with bevelled corners, and available in wood, glass or ceramic. Technical data Table top: various wood finishes, glass or ceramic Base: matt painted metal or painted metal in copper finish, matt brass Dimensions: 220x110 cm / 280x115 cm YOUNIVERSE bed, design Mauro Lipparini
Youniverse is soft bed in all its aspects: soft to touch, thanks to the generous padding that covers it completely, and soft to behold, thanks to the total absence of corners or any element which could generate a feeling of edginess. It is ideal to achieve maximum cocooning effect for the bedroom.
The design of Youniverse stands out for the vertical stitching on both the base and the headboard, testifying to the focus on upholstery work which is typical of many beds by Bonaldo. Youniverse is available with or without storage container. Technical data Upholstery: fabric or leather Dimensions: queen size 154x205cm / 160x200cm / 180x200cm / king size 194x205cm
