Living Divani in Cologne 2015
Vibrancy, dynamism, freedom of expression: numerous creative flows come together and merge in the products presented at IMM Cologne by Living Divani, the family-run enterprise that has made of upholstery its trademark.New entries blend with the iconic products and productions of recent years at the elegant stand designed by Piero Lissoni. These evocative settings boast intense, warm colours enveloped in precious crystal chandeliers, soft rugs in earthen tones and backlit painted bamboo screens, enabling a gradual discovery of the new refined world of Living Divani.
The Lipp family of upholstered furniture grows with the new Lipp Bed by Piero Lissoni.
The undisputed protagonist of the set up is the latest indoor product, the Lipp family of upholstered furniture design by Piero Lissoni, which reinterprets the luxurious capitonné style with the brand’s typical contemporary geometrical spirit. Following the presentation in April of the sofa, head of the family, and the bench, which mirrors its meticulous diamond pattern, the new Lipp Bed makes its debut at Cologne, with its characteristic and elegant sartorial detail on the headboard, a stylistic code but also a soft element to lean against. This classic and purified image is made extremely modern by the sharp cut of the shapes, for a couture furnishing style, which expresses the Living Divani character, slotting perfectly into the most sophisticated bedrooms and hotel rooms.
New FJU desk by Kaschkasch young designer duo.
Living Divani continues the work of talent scouting among new designers that lead to new collaboration, coordinated by Carola Bestetti, second generation, in close contact with the art director, Piero Lissoni. Cologne sees the debut of the first design for Living Divani by kaschkasch, a designer duo based in Cologne itself.
The FJU desk was presented for the first time at Salone Satellite 2014 where Living Divani noticed it and decided to include it in its own collection. It is an extremely linear desk, a practical foldable work space than can be closed to free up space whenever you need it. Thanks to a hidden mechanism, it can be locked into a vertical position, creating a wall-mounted magazine rack container for small objects or a charming surface in natural or charcoal dyed oak. This multi-purpose product is designed for the home, but is also perfect for contract projects. The FJU desk summarises the purity and invention of Northern design with the Living Divani idea of elegance.
Founded by Florian Kallus and Sebastian Schneider, the studio strives to obtain the maximum by starting from the minimum, breaking down all ideas to their basic elements, creating products that are simultaneously casual and fashionable. Precise lines and geometrical forms give their creations a graphical appearance, underlined by captivating colourings and the simplicity of the design. Each piece has its own characteristic to be discovered, which communicates the designers’ love for detail.
