Lema Home expanded its collaboration with well-known designers for its collection at Salone del Mobile
SINGAPORE (Nov 18): Lema Home made its mark in this year’s Salone del Mobile, the annual furniture trade fair, with a large collection that captured the true essence of luxury furniture. The focus was on form and material that were minimalist and, at times, decorative.
Lema worked with designers such as Piero Lissoni, David Lopez Quincoces, Chiara Andreatti, Gordon Guillaumier and Francesco Rota, as well as Leonardo Dainelli and Andrea Mancuso, who were designing for the brand for the first time.
Each designer was asked to give a summary of the two Lema souls — the industrial and the bespoke, both concentrating on the detail and quality that emphasise the value of its roots in manufacturing.
Lissoni, Lema’s art director since 1994, designed the Ombra lounge and dining chairs. The chairs represent the brand’s quintessential discretion and Lissoni’s rigorous style. Method and form are at the foundation of this refined industrial project, where the innate lightness reveals a strong personality. Ombra’s collection is characterised by the rarefied, finely drawn architecture: the lines that form the structure in black lacquered metal, which appears light yet is strong in its function and sustains the shell that harbours the seating and back.
Formed by a printed sheet of rigid polypropylene, and with a minimal depth, the shell is proposed in two versions: with a coating in black leather or entirely dressed in leather with a light padding.
Lissoni, 63, is the founder of Lissoni Associati, which focuses on architecture, interior and product designs. He has successfully incorporated all these disciplines into his furniture design. In 2015, Lissoni established a studio in New York to cover the American, Central and South American and Canadian markets.
