Cappellini @ London Design Festival 2019
At the Cappellini Point took place a talk with the Berlin- base designer Werner Aisslinger on the future of contract spaces.
Accepting the challenge by Giulio Cappellini, Werner Aisslinger has been working to bring into contract design the comfort and style of residential environments. The designer's skills, gained through hospitality design, are at the core of the round table organized during the London Design Festival: the designer’s considerations animate a debate on the future of high-traffic areas, from hotels to offices. The display , in fact, gives great prominence to the Juli Plastic armchair designed by Werner Aisslinger which in its version with plastic shell lends itself to furnish homes, offices and hospitality spaces thanks to its robustness and accessibility. The same flexibility is featured in another project by the German designer present at the London showroom: the Hobo sofas. Furthermore, Cappellini’s store displayed other successful products from the company's collections: Low Pad chairs and Orla sofas both signed by Jasper Morrison, new editions from the Newood line of bentwood chairs, armchairs and stools by Brogliato/Traverso, Cap Martin couches by Carlo Colombo with an apparent flexibility that makes them suitable to contract design as well. Moreover, the line of tables Mush designed by Giulio Cappellini: circles and cylinders meet in sophisticated combinations of colors, materials and finishes. A dark-grey matte metal base houses four proposals of table tops playing on the beauty of surfaces to adapt to very different architectural settings.
