Design for Pianca marks and accompanies every moment of our lives, guiding the simple gestures of our daily routines. In a home, it shows the taste and habits of the people living in it, creating a personal idea of comfort and beauty.
Eclectic and elegant, alluring and charismatic: Calatea, the armchair designed for Pianca by Cristina Celestino, is the synthesis of an exploration of forms that investigates the out-of-scale proportions of simple, primitive elements like leaves. The organic volumes and richness of the elegantly stylish details are inspired by the extraordinary qualities of the eponymous plant native to South America, which stimulates the senses on many different levels. The design is structured around the dialogue between botany and ergonomics, interpreted through a bold, enveloping and comfortable design featuring bright, vivid colours drawn from the plant’s own amazing natural palette.
Inspired by a classic style with a contemporary appeal, Amante bed is linked by a brilliant design that definitely doesn’t go unnoticed. Traditional charm comes together using a topical, refined aesthetic language with vintage undertones. Light volumes, precious and significant finishes such as the hand-pleated headboard finish – make this model equally elegant and majestic in the plain-headboard version as well. The graceful bed frame rails are in fluted, lacquered wood and accommodate the soft, padded frame of the bed base.
