The Milano Collection pays tribute to the driving force of the city from which it takes its name and where the roots of furniture design lie. Milano is a new collection but an expert one, contemporary but timeless, in which green ebony, beech and dyed ash, juxtaposed with galuchat, leather, nubuck, bronze, lacquers, fabrics and velvets are in balance between citation and modernity, and where high craftsmanship is visible in the love for detail and in the finishes. Luca Scacchetti has given life to an unmistakable signature design, thanks to the repeated contribution of elegance and to its intrinsic refined poetics: he shows that stretching and rewinding space and time in intricacies and new textures generates a design addressed to a contemporary imaginary that allows itself the luxury of a modernity that doesn’t exceed.
Percorsi is a contemporary collection that remains tied to the past. Between classic lines and modern simplifications, the pieces of furniture designed by Luca Scacchetti travel between Central European and Oriental atmospheres, reinvented in new and original details and materials. Percorsi is a gallery of furniture-characters each with its own personality, but connected to each other by the same design approach and by the constant search for a contemporary elegance, mindful of a journey into the memory of distant styles. The high quality of the materials, the juxtaposition of woods, metals, leathers and fabrics, and the attention to detail make each piece of furniture of Percorsi a collector's item capable of expressing luxury, simplicity and elegance in a journey through different cultures and traditions, and between styles, shapes and materials to discover essences, techniques and finishes that are disused and forgotten.
Percorsi Office is an office furniture collection of great prestige and timeless, rigorous yet rich in citations. The common thread of the pieces is the contrast between ebony, crystal and the bronzed brass details. The rigor of the lines, far from any minimalist stereotype, is the result of an extreme rarefaction and simplification of the classic lines.
