What does contemporary living mean for us at Kristalia?
At the Design Post Spring Edition x imm Cologne, we bring our interpretation of the concept of total living. It encompasses a combination of reflections, visions, and realities that continue the journey we started at the Salone del Mobile.
Discover the novelties that will be showcased in our space at the Design Post Spring Edition x imm Cologne.
DESIGN BY KENSAKU OSHIRO, 2023
Bottega, the new table by the Japanese designer Kensaku Oshiro, is inspired by the aesthetics of utility that are typical of everyday work tools, such as the wooden easel in a craftsman’s workshop. Its beauty lies in its function, in the intrinsic nature of the table and its use over time. The elegant solid ash frame features surprising visual lightness. The top is available in wood or glass, either rectangular or oval in shape.
DESIGN BY RAMOS BASSOLS, 2023
For the Contorna collection, the designers Ramos and Bassols focus on the idea of the chair as a micro architecture in wood, lightweight and harmonious. Sinuous lines and fine surfaces delineate its contours, whereas the minimalist design is given warm appeal by the solidity of natural or stained ash wood. Elegant and contemporary, Contorna reinterprets the art of cabinet-making from an industrial perspective, since the individual pieces of solid wood are machined by a robot and finished by hand. Contorna is available in a chair and armchair version, with wood seat.
DESIGN BY RUGA.PERISSINOTTO & SCIUTO ARCHITETTI, 2023
Avenue-Up is a vertical upright system that can be used to create wall systems or systems in the middle of a room. The uprights, made of Black or Bronze extruded anodized aluminium, feature a rounded cross-section. This shape gives them a smooth appearance, made lighter at the foot height with adjustable pushers. The uprights can be combined with base and wall units in the Avenue System, wooden shelves, aluminium and glass trays with integrated light, and open elements. The upright can be used as a mirror or TV stand, even on its own, or wall- or ceiling-mounted. It can also incorporate a vertical LED light and a TV cabling system.
