Each year our director Colin and his wife Virginia travel to Milan to discover the latest designs and innovations from our leading brands including Tribu, Gloster, Manutti, Atelier Vierkant, Lapalma and Potocco.
Tribù proudly presented it’s novelties for 2019 at the 57th edition of Salone del Mobile: the Tao collection by Monica Armani & the modular sofa concept Leyte by Studio Segers.
La Dolce Vita… These famous Italian words came to mind while we were enjoying the wonderful spazio in Via Cernaia, Gloster’s home for Milan Design Week 2018.
Guests enjoyed the blooming cherry blossom trees and the peace and quiet of this oasis of calm in the middle of the lively Brera quarter, next to famous San Marco church. The garden provided the perfect setting for the world premiere of the new DUNE sofa collection by Sebastian Herkner.
Handwoven sofas, refined chairs, elegant tables with stunning ceramic table tops that perfectly reflect natural stone, outdoor rugs… these were just a few of the novelties.
Besides the fully colored 8 clay bodies, Atelier Vierkant launches in 2018, 22 series of engobe top colours, clay perfumes, which can be applied on the outside of the natural clay.
Engobe is a liquid clay slip applied on the outside the ceramic body, often mixed with oxides, and fired upon. The 22 fragrances are used as accents that embellish the shapes and volumes. Often they cover partly of the model, from time to time entirely, but in most cases their flavor mixes with the body of the clay on which they are applied. Engobe applications are done on demand and patterns are customised to order
