Chiara Andreatti, Gordon Guillaumier, David Lopez Quincoces, Francesco Rota introduce their latest creations: Taiki, Fantino, Alton e Neil, together with a selection of 2018 products.
Lema, Made in Italy ambassador throughout the world, will partecipate for the fourth year to London Design Festival, from the 15th to the 23rd of September 2018. A not-to-be-missed appointment in the international panorama, which confirms London once again as one of the design capitals of the world.
For this year’s LDF, the all Italian style of Lema will be adorned with a refined selection of fabrics by iconic British brand Osborne & Little, daring with intense textures and colours. Two manufacturing excellences that have been at the centre of interior design for decades will come together for the first time, combining their shared passion for creativity, elegance and contemporary style.
Playing with opposites, between male and female, stars of the windows facing the King’s Road, will be the lounge-chairs ALTON by David Lopez Quincoces, FANTINO by Gordon Guillaumier, TAIKI by Chiara Andreatti together with the sofa NEIL by Francesco Rotta, all with never-seen before textiles, thanks to the partnership with the iconic British fabric designer.
Plenty of new, exciting projects for Lema, whose understated and never ostentatious luxury has made it one of the top players in its sector, renown for its discreet aesthetics, high levels of customisation and unique shapes. The brand’s new character, commenced in April at the Milan Salone del Mobile, who today is loyal to its discreet character whilst revealing its more audacious side.
Along with the windows, as always, during the London event, Lema will present its new flagship store layout in the heart of “swinging London”, that will shine a light on a selection of the latest news of the brand, a testimony to the vigorous cosmopolitan identity that characterises Lema together with its strong project identity. Interpretations of contemporary styles of living, the new proposals by Lema respond to a market without borders, enriching evermore the already vast catalogue, covering all sectors: upholstery, chairs, tables, furnishings complements, as well as important developments in the made to measure systems for the day and night areas, core business of the brand since its foundation, developed from a profound technical know-how developed in over 40 years of experience.
These proposals can be placed with discretion in a space made to measure, born from the expert hands of different international designers, which underlines the brand’s capacity, unique in the world of furnishings, to join different creative approaches in an articulated yet always coherent collection. Each individual piece is unforgettable, and when seen all together can offer aesthetic ideas that do not fear to show their most intimate personality.
The new collection to be seen in London:
Alton: passion in the details
Like a sculpture, the new ALTON armchair by David Lopez Quincoces is characterized by the metallic varnished structure that defines its semi-circular shape. A unique armchair sartorially finished. The back is created with a single piece of naturally aged leather placed by hand. To create a refined stylistic contrast, the rigour of the external lines melts in the comforting seat, which can be finished in fabric or leather. A soft cushion guarantees a maximum comfort when seating.
Proposed in striped textile Braemar - Strome by Osborne & Little, in two chromatic variations, gunpowder and beige.
Fantino: sophisticated charisma
Gordon Guillaumier’s elegant armchair FANTINO. With its compact and sinuous forms, which vaguely recalls a saddle mounted on an oak-tinted, heat-treated, ash base. The soft but essential upholstery keeps the dimensions contained, balancing out the proportions, while still ensuring optimal comfort. A timeless project based on the ethos of Lema’s manufacturing culture, emphasised in the gros-grain profile that runs along the stich work of the fabric or leather upholstery.
Proposed with bicolour textile Ragtime - Ellington by Osborne & Little, with its geometric decoration inspired by the 50s.
Taiki: contemporary past
The result of a collaboration with designer Chiara Andreatti, the comfortable and inviting TAIKI armchair reinterprets classic forms in a contemporary key. The hand-made detail of the stitches adds a modern twist to the armchair, still making a clear reference to Le Corbusier lines and proportions, while the oak-tinted, heat-treated structure in ash adds a dash of oriental spirit.
Proposed with velvet-decorated textile Savoy Velvets - Thespis by Osborne & Little, in nuance of turqoise and mustard yellow.
Neil: informal yet chic
Refined and original, NEIL is a fresh new offering with a strong appeal for those in search of more informal relaxation or the luxury of shared moments. This modular sofa is the perfect synthesis of made-to-measure comfort and modern style. Its low seat, its generous shape, distinguishes it and squared back and arms which, slightly inclined outwards, enhance the feeling of comfort and well being. The whole system rotates around a platform, which can accommodate the sofa back and arms at two different heights. It is the finishing touches that really distinguish this piece: from the 50s-style feet, to the elegant stitching around the perimeter of the sofa.
Proposed with textile in velvet of pure cotton from the Mikado Collection– Velvet by Osborne & Little.
To recount the game of contrasts between male and female are the cushions in bicolour textile Garnier – Ledoux with its hexagonal decoration, and Ormond-Aredee, textile in a linen mix characterised by a small geometric motif.
