New lines and sophisticated materials give Art Déco a contemporary twist
Giorgio Collection has unveiled its Infinity collection ahead of a hotly anticipated return to Salone del Mobile.Milano. Designed by Giorgio Soressi, with whom the brand enjoys a long-established partnership, Infinity showcases the much prized and sought-after Makoré mahogany wood in dark grey, with the tropical African wood lending the furniture a unique sense of depth. Shiny, brushed polyester is for the first time paired with light gold chrome and rare, top-of-the-range green Bolivia marble, making for a contemporary take on Art Déco.
The distinguishing trait – and most innovative characteristic – of the brand’s new collection is the new design approach used for the 50 or so pieces in the range. Bold lines interact with shapes created through extensive use of solid prism-like masses, thus creating unusual effects in both 2D and 3D, with plenty of inlaying and 45° angles to boot.
