Black & White mood

Black & white furniture showcases the encounter of opposites. It playfully combines seemingly contrasting elements that, when put together, are able to create a perfect harmony. Harmony not only of colours, but also of formal purity and warmth, solidity and lightness.

The sofas, tables, armchairs and other accessories created by top furniture brands stand out for the graphic design, the geometric games, the refined landscapes and the sophisticated elegance that can only be achieved by black & white.

The unmistakable design is by Piero Lissoni, who has conceived a modular sofa for Living Divani whose name and shapes evoke comfort and relaxation. “Soft, sweet and malleable”: the welcome of Extrasoft is revealed in the soft seats, to be placed next to each other to create personalised geometries and compositions. A furnishing piece of sophisticated elegance that reaches its highest form in the white version.

Meridiani too chooses black and white, especially for its Eat category: “a setting where objects speak of new places and rituals in the world of food - and much more”. Between the tables and the chairs, the Teresina chair and the Hubert table are two pieces in black that stand out for their elegance and refinement. They both come from the hand of Andrea Parisio and his desire to pursue the essentiality of lines and graphic purity, combined with the warmth of solid oak in the former case and with stylish optional additions in the latter, like the double top or the brass tip.

Moroso - Pipe

Sebastian Herkner has designed for Moroso a lounge chair characterised by very original shapes and colours. The Pipe chair is able to enhance the curves and their softness, maintaining a graceful appearance. The piece showcases a wisely balanced play of opposites: between warmth and simplicity, oversize and lightness, roundness and boldness. And, eventually, the most powerful contrast of all: between black and white.

Gubi - Nagasaki

This chair is a masterpiece by Mathieu Matégot, who designed it in 1954 with three legs, making it one of only a few examples of chairs with this feature. The Nagasaki Dining Chair by Gubi is made of perforated sheet, producing an effect of great lightness, enhanced even further by the saddle-shaped seat. Mathieu Matégot’s work is now part of the permanent collection of the Vitra Design Museum.

The Atlas coffee table takes its name from the mythical Titan condemned to hold up the sky on his shoulders. The piece, realised by John Astbury for New Works features square, imposing legs supporting a tabletop characterised by softer shapes and rounded edges. The focal point of the design is precisely the combination and contrast between the legs and the tabletop, that enhance each other, giving the table a distinct stage presence and a brutalist architectural feel.

Several master glassmakers united in a single “performative act”. The 100 Series suspension lamp by Bocci consists of a cluster of glass spheres cast together to create the most unexpected and evoking landscapes, especially if white blends with black.

Cassina - Post Scriptum

“Black on white, the contemporary expression of design.” These are the meaningful words from Cassina for Post Scriptum, a collection of porcelain vases decorated with the designs of Formafantasma. The vases are characterised by different shapes and dynamics, but they all are unique and distinctive pieces. They originated from the collaboration between Cassina and Ginori 1735 and from the same decorative technique, known as “scratch”: the scratch is designed on the surface with a black underglaze and it is then fixed with direct baking.

Bed linen, bed covers, blankets and pillows. The Contemporary collection by Kristina Dam Studio stands out for its simple design and bold, rigorous graphic patterns. Taking centre stage, in addition to the fine cotton is the black and white motif, that evokes a minimal and deeply contemporary style, as suggested by the name of the entire series.
