Bartoli Design is fond of lasting collaborations with companies willing to establish a long-term professional relationship. Their new 2016 designs are thus developed a number of historical collaborations, with Bonaldo, Laurameroni, Kristalia and Segis, which led to the creation of ten new products for the Salone del Mobile.
New challenges are no less stimulating, as the one started with the very new Da a brand, for which the studio designed a new armchair, exhibited at the Fuorisalone in the set of the Erastudio Apartment Gallery. Interpreting Bonaldo’s international vocation in the spirit of rigour, Bartoli Design creates two products designed both for the residential and the contract markets: Ketch, a chair inspired from sails inflated by the wind and constructed making use of the leather or fabric upholstery tension over a metal frame and Menù, a collection of fixed and extendable tables with minimal lines, designed for manufacturing optimization and a democratic cost.
Bartoli Design has contributed to the creation of Laurameroni’s identity, centered on surface design and materials and craftsmanship valuing. In 2016, those values are expressed in Terre, a new wall panelling, proposed in metal and stone varieties; Echo, a series of three occasional tables where marble and glass are supported by a thin brass structure – in a balance of forces; 40/40, the first modular system by this brand: interpretation of the parallelepiped element, featuring minute details; Drapè Lounge and Drapè Sofa, revolving armchair and large sofa, are added to the earlier ottomans for a collection defined by its generous and informal upholstery draping.
Twenty years of collaboration, friendship, and successful products mark the relation between Bartoli Design and Kristalia. In Maki, a family of fixed and extendable tables featuring an aluminum frame and thin tops, the study has been about the evolution in curvy shapes of the table typology with portals, started by the earlier Sushi, Nori and Torii models. The new designs for Segis pay specific attention to the contract market: Iceland, a large bench, with trapezoidal backrests which seem to float on the seating top and Camel, a versatile family of chairs with eight different bases and the seating in a curved shape, welcoming and comfortable, available in polypropylene or upholstered.
The Da a company asked Bartoli Design to design new seatings with metal, the brand preferred material, which is exploited to create furniture items with a strong identity. During the Fuori Salone, in the heart of the Brera District, the scenic venue of Erastudio Apartment Gallery will be the framework for the new Sensu Lounge, an indoor-outdoor armchair made of steel rods outlining a sturdy frame, despite its graphic texture with a surprising visual lightness.
