After 7 years Opinion Ciatti joins imm cologne again and presents four very special new editions of some of its most representative items: the La Cima3 clothes hanger, the Mammamia chair, the B.tri armchair and the LAlampada lamp.
These are four new and refined items that show peculiar finishings and materials, experimental research and original combinations: an ever-changing evolution or, using a metaphor that the OC world likes very much, it represents a new stage of that journey of (re)discovery which the company began in 2013. Setting out from the home soil of Tuscany and finding in it forgotten lands and views; understanding the deeper meaning of this region and of these roots the following year, and finally becoming part of that very meaning with the collection launched during the last edition of the Milan Furniture Fair. Meanings, concepts, conventions and all that is usual or preordained, are overcome, uprooted, toppled, overturned. It's not just about seeing things, but looking inside them. Symbols and materials from a bygone era are taken as sources of inspiration but they are removed of their original meaning and new points of view, new suggestions and new sparks are established.
Thanks to this context for imm cologne 2016 Opinion Ciatti focuses on finishings, interpreted both as raw materials to be verified and new combinations to be tested. New finishings which can give a new life to already existing items, which are able to “innovate” even respecting tradition, able to be still faithful to that #FollowYourRoots which has been Opinion Ciatti collection concept for the last two years.
On the one hand we find the research on raw materials, the study of their own applicability and use, on the other we have the analysis of original combinations and compounds, in a potential never-ending “game” to make a reality of “what the mind has only imagined”. In this way the custom tailoring concept, one of the main feature of OC mission, comes back too. Sizes, colours, material finishings, craftsmanship: dreaming is enough because OC bespoke might realize.
The appointment to discover the special editions of La Cima3 and Mammamia, B.tri and LAlampada is in Cologne at the International Interiors Show from Monday the 18th of January. Stand L 56, Hall 11.2.
