Fendi Casa has launched their latest furniture collection, Fashion Furniture Design (FFD), this year.
With plans to be fully released in April at Milan’s Salone del Mobile, the collection features works from award-winning architects and designers, such as Piero Lissoni, Marcel Wanders and Cristina Celestino.
The intricate collection was first put on display at the Barcelona estate of the prominent Catalan artist, Xavier Corberó. The event was coordinated by Fendi artistic director and leader behind the new FF collection, Silvia Venturini Fendi.
Chief Executive of Fendi Casa, Alberto Da Passano shared that this collection, “emphasizes the values of identity, creativity, and craftsmanship that have always distinguished [the brand’s] collections.”
The line includes never-before-seen pieces and revitalized designs from Fendi Casa’s more experimental projects. Some of the pieces included in the launch are a ‘Vittoria’ sideboard by Cristina Celestino, the ‘Sagano’ armchairs by Piero Lissoni and the ‘Groove & Groovy’ armchair and ottoman by Toan Nguyen.
Another greatly anticipated piece from collaborator Atelier Oï is a coffee table that features a sequence of classical arches inspired by the Palazzo della Civiltà Italiana building where the Fendi headquarters reside. Along with this, the table’s design also takes after the artistry of the Colosseum in Rome.
The efforts of each piece come from a pool of well-known and respected designers internationally, offering a widened variety of ideas and creativity. The focus of all Fendi Casa’s endeavors is to create furniture that exhibits heritage, exclusivity and innovation. The FF launch keeps the originality of Fendi Casa’s Italian heritage alive while exhibiting daring innovation. As Silvia Venturini Fendi puts it:, “‘I admire those who create objects with a strong personality; detail-oriented, creative yet functional and that make me say, ‘“I wish I’d had that idea.’ ”
