The new Giorgetti furniture combines beauty and functionality
The new Giorgetti furniture, revealed at Salone del Mobile 2022 and pictured here at the rationalist Castrocaro Terme, is perfectly balanced between beauty and functionality
The 1930s Castrocaro Terme, in Romagna, forms the backdrop for Italian furniture company Giorgetti’s 2022 collection. A Rationalist building originally designed by engineer Diego Corsani and decorated by ceramist and artist Tito Chini, the interiors exude a balanced geometric rigor juxtaposed against the rich decoration.
This place, explains the artistic director Giancarlo Bosio, “is perfectly in line with the spirit of Giorgetti, the beauty of the decorative details, the precious materials, the unique spaces designed to exalt the essential elements of life: beauty and culture as authentic sources of meaning and significance”.
The new collection. shown here and also featured at Salone del Mobile 2022, features Roberto Lazzeroni’s ‘Borealis’ screen, an intuitive design that is the result of the architect’s ‘quick thinking’, defined by a sensuous composition of interwoven strips of leather , whose layout refers to the patterns of the aurora borealis.
Also featured is Dainelli Studio’s ‘Montgomery’ chair, inspired by classic furniture silhouettes updated with a contemporary twist.
The collection’s ‘Flamingo’ game table, an in-house design by Giorgetti, is both playful and decadent.
Finished in leather and lined with ash wood, the table incorporates four pull-out shelves – enough room for a guest’s drink, for example, without needing to clutter up the play surface – which can also store game pieces when put away. Four sculptural chairs accompany the design.
In a chic version of the home office, Dainelli Studio has created the “Edward”. It has a desk available in ash or marble, modestly sized to fit into any home space, and also comes in a vanity version.
Other creations in this elegant and intricate collection include Lazzeroni’s ‘Ray’ coffee table, a nod to the 1970s and described as ‘a UFO that landed in the living room’; Carlo Colombo’s lightly padded, 1930s-inspired ‘Vibe’ bed and accompanying side table, as well as the designer’s rigorously orthogonal ‘Soho’ sectional sofa; and the ‘Anthology’ wallcovering, inspired by Renaissance-style floors, by Giancarlo Bosio, who also contributed a compelling series of coffee tables, ‘Griffe’, crafted from wood, leather and marble.
Such projects, and the entire 2022 collection, are the result of the company’s push for creative research into shapes, materials and craftsmanship, which, notes CEO Giovanni Vecchio, allow “Giorgetti to offer a unique, sophisticated product, a unique blend of craftsmanship and technology, which goes from beauty to functionality. §
