Lighting and Low Seating at Salone del Mobile 2017

By Eliza Jordan

April 13, 2017

Two things that can automatically set a mood at ease—lighting and low seating. The two balance each other, creating an atmosphere that is comfortable and inviting. At Salone Del Mobile last week, we caught a few favorite perfect pairings. Below, Whitewall shares those.

Gracing us with lighting fixtures that, as the brand states, transforms “a room’s mood and temperature with light,” GIOPAGANI brought forth ILLOGICA ALLEGRIA and ECLAT D’EAU—both in Murano glass and metal. ILLOGICA ALLEGRIA offers a more contemporary piece, seen as a hanging chandelier and a standing floor lamp, while ECLAT D’EAU sets the mood in a sea blue.

FLOS showed a lighting piece by Konstantin Grcic—Noctambule. Meaning “the night owl or reveler,” usually invisible during the day and ready for activation at night, the LED light’s glass modules are carefully held together by its materials of aluminum, steel, and blown glass.

For Moroso, Tord Boontje designed small, upholstered benches with a curved silhouette and throw cushions. The meadow-themed collection is held up by legs consisting of three superimposed spheres available in either wood of matt acrylic.

Slightly higher off the ground, yet still short enough for maximum comfort, Poltrona Frau released the JEFF collection by Jean-Marie Massaud. The new group includes a modern armchair with armrests, an armchair with a cylindrical backrest made of a rigid polyurethane padding and foam, and a stool. All pieces feature Pelle Frau® leather.

Molteni & C unveiled furniture by iconic designer and architect Gio Ponti. Originally designed for Altamira in 2012, Ponti’s furniture pieces are seeing a second life, offered to the public as revitalized remakes. Pulling from his archives, Molteni & C carries on Ponti’s legacy through 11 pieces—of which the chair makes our must-have list.
