Visionnaire introduces Beauty 2020 collection
The Italian meta-luxury brand has unveiled a spectacular collection inspired by art
Visionnaire’s Beauty 2020 collection offers a stunning collection of furniture and lighting that narrates a story of contemporary beauty and an attitude of creating extraordinary unique projects and objects. This year, Visionnaire expands its art design offering, approaching the great challenge of contextualising them in a retail scenario and involving designers of exceptional artistic talent that include Alexandro La Spada, Mario Lipparini, Marco Piva, Draga & Aurel and others.
The Il Pavone collection by Marc Ange, which made its debut in December during Miami Art Basel with a “haute couture throne” and “prêt-à-porter chair” versions, is back in 2020 with exclusive fabrics in six colour variants. The luminous collection of lamps Aracea, designed by Gupica, is a family of lamps with an innovative and romantic appeal that combines the lighting function using ultra-slim LEDs with a botanical form having subtle, elegant lines. The lamps are available in floor-to-ceiling and suspended models.
Alessandro La Spada has created a new dining table – Arkady – with a sculptural lower top in artistic stone. The slab of Crema Marfil stone is crafted by hand to add unique, precious value, thanks to bas-relief workmanship, irregular borders and the inclusion of artistic resins and Himalayan salt. The legs are in metal, moulded in sand to create a three-dimensional pattern with a hammered effect with animalier overtones.
The new collaboration with the design duo Draga & Aurel translates into a truly original capsule collection. The Amos is a true jewel: two metal armrests, shaped by moulding in sand for a lunar effect, embrace the concrete base, poured into a reinforced form and subjected to an exclusive erosion technique. The Lego low table and console stand out for the contrasting combination of two materials, treated with different finishes: precious and “raw”, the glowing gold of the metal and the matte black of the concrete. This apparent contradiction becomes a kind of unity of two different characters. The Sputnik lamps are made of multiple rhomboidal parts that produce an origami metal composition. Their lines form a fractal motif in which the metal surfaces reflect the light, casting theatrical shadows all around.
Architect Mauro Lipparini presents paneling as a free, instinctive project, shunning standardisation and embracing distant influences from the powerful, elegant traditions of the African universe. Contemporary boiseries in Frisé Eucalyptus woods with all the functions of an accessorised wall, ready to take on totally bespoke configurations. Lines, curved panels, grooves, continuity, interruption and coplanar surfaces are underscored and paced by the linear shelves, generating a graphic game of shadows and highlights from the rounded openings. The paneling alternates volumes of double depth, surrounded by concave and convex components.
Architect Marco Piva presents the Admeto coffee table, a combination of various contrasting but perfectly juxtaposed materials, for a composition that is almost an architectural archetype, but modern and functional at the same time. The legs in marble with striped workmanship convey an impression of monumental character, contradicted by the transparency and lightness of the top in smoked glass.
Visionnaire revealed the new Beauty 2020 collection during the course of three days from June 17-19 , with a show prepared for clients and the international press. With this live event, Visionnaire is the first amongst luxury interior design brands to broadcast it’s new collection through live streaming through its social media channels to simultaneously connect with the world in a moment in which travel is still complicated, although people are still eager for information and new ideas.
