Involving multiple designers of renown, the new collection is modern chic with hints of glamour
July 15, 2020: Bringing together some unique design minds, the latest ‘Beauty 2020’ collection by the Italian home décor brand Visionnaire offers a stunning collection of furniture and lighting. The designers involved include Alexandro La Spada, Mario Lipparini, Marco Piva, Draga&Aurel and others. Technological research, experimentation with materials, the juxtaposition and mixing of elements combined with skilled craftsmanship went into every single product in the collection, making them unique, inimitable yet reproducible.
The “Il Pavone” collection by Marc Ange, which made its debut in December during Miami Art Basel with a “haute couture throne” and “prêt-à-porter chair” versions, is back in 2020 with exclusive fabrics in six color variants. The luminous collection of lamps, Aracea, designed by Gupica, is a family of lamps is an innovative and romantic project that combines the lighting function, using ultra slim LEDs, with a botanical form having subtle, elegant lines. The lamps are available in the floor-to-ceiling and suspension models.
Alessandro La Spada has created a new dining table – Arkady – with a sculptural lower top in artistic stone. The slab of Crema Marfil stone is crafted by hand to add unique, precious value, thanks to bas-relief workmanship, irregular borders and the inclusion of artistic resins and Himalayan salt. The legs are in metal, molded in sand to create a three-dimensional pattern with a “hammered” effect with animalier overtones.
The new collaboration with the design duo Draga&Aurel translates into a truly original capsule collection. The Amos is a true jewel: two metal armrests, shaped by molding in sand for a lunar effect, embrace the concrete base, poured into a reinforced form and subjected to an exclusive erosion technique. The Lego low table and console by Draga&Aurel stand out for the contrasting combination of two materials, treated with different finishes: precious and “raw,” the glowing gold of the metal and the matte black of the concrete. The Sputnik lamps are made of multiple rhomboidal parts that produce an “origami” metal composition. Their lines form a fractal motif in which the metal surfaces reflect the light, casting theatrical shadows all around.
Desmond, a jewel in the center of the room by architect Mauro Lipparini, enhances the perception of roundness without edges, increasing the preciousness of the glass volumes. The central element in Eucalyptus Frisè wood as acts a pillar for the suspended glass volumes, which give the whole composition a feeling of lightness.
The upholstered pieces, Donovan by La Conca is a seating program with remarkably modular contemporary design. They are available in the “square” version with squared armrests and the “roll” version with a cylindrical armrest.
Douglas is the new sofa designed by La Spada, featuring borders of curved metal in the base that virtually borrow a part of the padding of the armrest. The Douglas sofa is covered in Nabuk leather, while its cushions and daybed are in Banksy, one of the new Visionnaire fabrics, featuring a “teddybear” effect. The Douglas collection also includes an armchair, a love seat, an ottoman and a low table.
The architect Marco Piva presents the Admeto coffee table, a combination of various contrasting but perfectly juxtaposed materials, for a composition that is almost an architectural archetype, but modern and functional at the same time: the legs in marble with “striped” workmanship contribute to convey an impression of monumental character, contradicted by the transparency and lightness of the top in smoked glass.
