Preview Salone del Mobile.Milano 2019 – Giano, Papillon, Shanghai 11.03.2019
The HOME PROJECT collection is a celebration of design excellence, discreet and measured elegance, conceived to stand the test of time.
Designed by Giuseppe Bavuso for Alivar, the HOME PROJECT line has now been extended with new furniture and complements, designed for the living room or the bedroom, made with raw materials and components that are 100% Italian.
The new products will be showcased and visible to the public during the upcoming edition of the Salone del Mobile in a booth that brings to mind all the beauty and charm of classic contemporary living.
Everything is in its place in the Giano high-chest, consisting of drawers of two different sizes to store everyday clothing and apparel, and side compartments which house small shelves and hooks to stow your belts and ties neatly.
Giano is embellished by two large “full-length” side mirrors that fold open or closed according to need, revealing or concealing the two vertical storage units on the sides, with a matt lacquered finish in a linen colour. The central mirror, which adds depth to the resting surface, remains visible at all times. The entire frame, which is available in heat-treated oak, black oak or in Italian walnut, is enveloped by sophisticated hide upholstery, just like the drawers and handles with visible stitching and satin finish nickel inserts.
For the bedroom, Alivar is offering the new Papillon bed, with its simple and striking shapes and ultra-soft padding, thanks to the comfortable headboard consisting of two large different-density polyurethane foam cushions and polyester fibre lining. The volumes of the headboard are in stark contrast with the slim frame and slender yet robust legs made of painted cast aluminium.
Last but not least, Shanghai is an iconic piece from the HOME PROJECT collection. In this new version, the Shanghai bookcase is presented in a larger size – measuring 312 cm long and 237 cm high – for an even more spectacular scenic effect. The outer frame is in heat- treated or black stained oak, whereas the irregular shelves that design new and unexpected shapes are made of structural Baydur foam material, which are then covered with matt lacquered or grey spatula-look concrete.
