In the collection presented at the Salone del Mobile 2018 all the passion, the creativity and experience gained in processing a noble, precious and sophisticated material like crystal.

The charm of the new products emerges in all its splendor through geometric lines and shapes, delicate reflections and surprising shades.

The new finishes and details that enhance the decorative appearance of the products also inspire admiration. These include a smooth and transparent "wired glass" that incorporates a metal mesh and the striking concrete, stone, marble and wood finishes used in the articulated Aladin and Sherazade door and partition system.

It is also a source of pride for the company that two Master of Design such as Mario Bellini and Jean Nouvel have joined the team of internationally renowned designers who signed the 2018 collection: Edward Barber & Jay Osgerby, Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, Piero Lissoni, Patricia Urquiola and Tokujin Yoshioka.

HYPERtable: both in the mirror version and in the transparent extralight glass version, the HYPERtable low table by Mario Bellini features different bevels variable in inclinations and lengths. The result is a magical set of prisms, with infinite facets and surprising reflections.

CRYPTÉE: the high table and low table CRYPTÉE designed by Jean Nouvel have a printed knurled glass top that creates an exceptional effect of brightness and light refraction.

AMI-VERRE: bookcase in smoked glass or dark gray paste black glass. An architecture of vertical and horizontal panels interlocked connected that can be used in different configurations. Design by Jean Nouvel.

both sides.

STARLIGHT Glass Table: round, square or rectangular high table in transparent extralight glass, designed by Tokujin Yoshioka.The legs are made of silver-backed crystal profiles, glued together to form star-shaped cylinders, with incredible brilliance and sculptural appearance.

STARLIGHT Mirror : a very precious frame for STARLIGHT Mirror designed by Tokujin Yoshioka, made with molded and silvered crystal profiles. The mirror remains detached a few centimeters from the wall, to emphasize the brightness and the preciousness of the object.
