Cappellini Maison, Paris January 16th - March 7th 2020
In Paris, during the design week held from the 17th to 21st of January, Cappellini narrates its visionary and eclectic dwelling. It does so with two original exhibition projects displayed at the Cappellini showroom in Boulevard Saint Germain and at Le Bon Marché.
In Boulevard Saint Germain, Cappellini Maison recreates the charming mood of an intimate home of the 7th District thanks to the stage curated by Valentina Folli. Classic and contemporary, traditional and avant-garde meet in this concept-apartment designed for a young, dynamic and cosmopolitan couple. Iconic Cappellini pieces have been carefully placed to emphasise the brand's ability to create collections whose charm does not end in trend seasonality. Each project has its own strong identity and expresses the creativity of the designer, but, at the same time, it reveals an obvious consistency with Cappellini’s stylistic language.
Dining and living, relaxation and sleeping areas come alive within the spaces of Maison Cappellini through some of the company's most iconic pieces. These include the ‘Orla’ sofa and ‘Superoblong’ bed by Jasper Morrison, the sculptural ‘S-Chair’ by Tom Dixon, ‘Bookshelf’ by Shiro Kuramata and the architectural desk ‘Radical Fake’ by Patricia Urquiola. Alongside these great classics, the company displays the ‘Dolmen’ marble table and the ‘El Paso’ cabinet, both designed by Giulio Cappellini. Also featuring, a preview of Carlo Colombo's ‘Roquebrune’ sofa.
The simple, elegant and welcoming atmosphere reinterprets the style of typical Parisian mansions in which the muted and refined colours alternate with more vivid shades as in a work of art. Wainscoting, curtains, carpets and frames recall the charm of Haussmann architecture, and are the backdrop to the modern rigour of Cappellini's furnishing elements.
