Salone del Mobile 2018: Part Four

Salone del Mobile 2018: Part Four

Stylecraft present our coverage of Salone del Mobile 2018. Part Four: Verzelloni and Local Design

At the final day of Salone del Mobile 2018 we headed to the elegant stand of Italian brand Verzelloni, taking in their new releases by design studio Lievore Altherr. We also cover Local Design, an Australian collective that includes Stylecraft partners Ross Gardam and Tom Skeehan.

Presenting the concept of ‘’Elegance Culture” for 2018, the Verzelloni stand and new collections for 2018 were inspired by “Nature. Its colours, softness, gentleness and force.” The longstanding partnership with design studio Lievore Altherr stood true with this year’s extensions to the Nilson range. Now available in a high and low back armchair together with a lounge, the collection exudes comfort and moves from domestic to office spaces with ease.

Also presented at Salone del Mobile were the new Etan bookcase and Antero coffee tables. Designed by Simon Morasi Pipercic, the freestanding Etan bookcase in solid oak is striking in its design, emphasized by the horizontal shelves with the verticality of the inclined uprights, while the Antero tables are an elegant and timeless addition to the Verzelloni collection.

A number of local talents were active in Milan this year, with the most talked about being LOCAL DESIGN. 26 Australian designers – the largest independent showing of Australian Design in Milan to date – showcased their selected pieces in an exhibition that founder Emma Elizabeth says was “directed toward showcasing and advancing awareness of Australian design to a global market.” Stylecraft partners, Ross Gardam and Tom Skeehan, formed part of the collective both taking the opportunity to exhibit collections soon to be released at Stylecraft on the global stage. Skeehan presented the Nave armchair and SO Glass light, while Gardam showcased his Ora desk lamp in new finishes and a preview of the Noon lounge.

We look forward to sharing our full Salone Del Mobile report with you in the coming weeks with more imagery and details about the new releases from our international and local brands.
