Viccarbe focuses on sustainability and comfort for the new 2020 collections
Piero Lissoni, Stefen Diez and Elisa Ossino are the three designers involved byto give life to the new collections of 2020. Sustainability and innovation are the focus of the research carried out by the company, the geometric and gentle shapes instead represent the aesthetic concept with the aim to bring to light the most authentic essence of design. The new collections are therefore a perfect combination of beauty and versatility, fundamental elements, if we look at the changes that private and professional life has undergone in recent months. The reshaping of our habits, which now appears definitive and established, translates into a new but at the same time anchored vision of the origin: the furniture linked to its function, to its use, often multiple. Who wears a discreet beauty, without frills, but still capable of enchanting.
Speaking of dialogue with the past, the reference to the 70s is very strong in the sinuous lines of Piero Lissoni's Ears chair. The evocative capacity of the seat makes it suitable for a private interior, but its formal rigor inserts it perfectly in a public context, be it dedicated to leisure or work. The proposed variants are interesting: legs and seat in oak, or metal legs and seat in oak, and also the possibility of inserting the armrests, with a shape in total harmony.
The Mediterranean grace of Elisa Ossino is expressed with gritty elegance in the series of tables designed by her for Viccarbe. Sculptural and essential, they have a powder-coated steel structure and feature a functional and decorative detail: a knob to lift it in three possible variants, metal, oak and marble. Trino is a coffee table to be moved, just like we would do with a tray, to adapt it to our needs and to put it in communication with the other furnishings.
Sustainability and comfort were, instead, the reference points of Stefan Diez for the design of the Funda seating collection (on the cover). Sustainability is expressed in the design that makes the seat separable and therefore it is possible to dispose of each component in the right way at the end of the life cycle. In addition, the metal structure designed to last over time is combined with the padded part that can be easily dismantled and replaced at the end of its life cycle (shorter than the supporting structure) or simply for a change of style. The round shapes of the seat and back surround the body and ensure great comfort, the folds of the fabric become a discreet and elegant decorative motif.
Alongside the new collections, Viccarbe continues to improve and expand the existing collections. It does so in light of new habits and needs, in the sign of the versatility and flexibility of the furnishings. An example? The Season collection is enriched with a new, interesting element: the pouf 40 which has the same height as a chair (47 cm) and therefore can be used as an additional seat for the desk, but also for the dining table. The Season project, moreover, is appreciated precisely for its modularity and the possibility of combining the elements.
