The 2022 novelties of the Soul Collection 26.09.2022
The signature style of Giuseppe Viganò − Studio Viganò reappears in new elements of the Soul collection, designed for the living, dining and bedroom areas.
The Soul novelties resume the dialogue on harmonious contemporary living that started in 2021 with the sofa and armchair. The new additions have been created with special attention paid to the needs of daily living that, in modern times, require ever increasing levels of comfort and functionality. With this renewal of the concept of home and living comes a table, chair, sideboard, cabinet and TV unit for the living area; and a bed, bedside tables, chest of drawers, dressing table and mirror for the sleeping area.
As with the music that inspired the collection, the Soul table is intensely expressive. The sensual, elegant development of the central leather-covered leg adds movement to the structure, which is then interrupted by an oblique cut that brings out a curved section and adds dynamism to the entire design. Add to this its soft, rounded style and minimalistic details, and it is clear to see how this table can create an immersive feeling of comfort, soul and beauty.
The Soul chair, designed to surround the table, is comfortable and welcoming, thanks to the presence of armrests integrated into the seat. Fully upholstered in leather or fabric, its triangular metal feet are available in a Matte light-platinum finish.
The sideboard is distinguished by a metal frame that outlines the front and highlights its suspension from the ground, made possible by sophisticated feet in folded sheet metal with the same rounded style of the front frame. The Soul sideboard is equipped with a drawer and two doors for storing various objects and utensils. Affixed to the front and available in marble or wood are details that act as handles.
The Soul vitrine incorporates a metal profile with the same alternating pattern of solids and voids seen in the sideboard. The linearity of the glass doors is interrupted by marble inserts, emphasising the coexistence of different materials and making the new products of the Soul collection especially suitable for design environments with strong personality.
The characteristics of the Soul collection are also recognisable in the TV unit and coffee table which complete the living area. A metal edge around the front perimeter of the TV unit emphasises the sweetness of the shapes, while the absence of the handles is answered in an accent (in walnut or marble) that is applied to the lacquered structure for opening and closing the doors and drawers.
The play of contrasts between materials and colours gives harmony and movement to the Soul coffee table, available in a high or low version. Lightness and solidity coexist, due to the folded sheet metal legs ready to support the marble top.
All the elements of the Soul collection are available in single-colour glossy lacquer for the wood, matte light-platinum for the metals, and walnut or marble wood for the details.
Creativity and craftsmanship find full expression in the bedroom area with the new Soul bed. In line with other upholstered items of the collection, the Soul bed, in its delicacy, immediately transfers a feeling of relaxation and well-being. The rounded and accommodating headboard, slightly curving around the mattress, follows the pattern of the seams, giving added softness to the shapes and wooden details that hold the frame and headboard in a gentle embrace. Everything appears as a single and sinuous body. Upholstery for the bed, sofa and armchair is available in leather or fabric.
The sleeping area finds further definition in the Soul bedside tables and chest of drawers. Featuring an elegant shape and slightly rounded edges, these furnishings are made of glossy lacquered wood. The Soul bedside table rests flatly on the ground. Its open compartment and wooden drawer have been designed to maximise use of all areas: Inside, the container compartment accommodates objects, guaranteeing both visibility and protection. The upper level of the external silhouette, meanwhile, is ideal for hosting products used each day while preparing to sleep.
The chest of drawers in glossy lacquered wood, simple and always with a rounded line, is suspended on four sculptural feet in bent sheet metal. As for the TV unit, the function of handles is resolved in the presence of inserts in walnut or marble.
Complementing the bed and the other furnishing elements of the room are the dressing table and mirror, which can exist individually or as a pair. Attention to detail and Turri’s expertise give life to the elements in which the precious essence of canaletto walnut meets the verve of more contemporary materials, such as glass, glossy lacquer and marble.
The dressing table’s lacquered wood top and metal edge finds continuation in the linearity of the legs. The front drawers, in wood or marble, make the Soul dressing table an essential and functional product for the storage of trinkets and various objects.
The new extension of the Soul collection presented during the Salone del Mobile 2022 reaffirms the presence of Giuseppe Viganò in the creative team of the company and highlights the value of products proudly Made in Italy by the Turri brand.
