New furniture ideas
Restlessly innovative and creative, Pedrali, the Italian company that produces contemporary design furniture for contract and residential has just launched ‘New Ideas 2020’. It showcases fresh collections presented in a project which situates the products in enhanced sets and scenarios to truly draw out their beauty.
This way of presenting the furniture allows people to see beyond a product shot into how the seating, sofas, tables and more can be utilised in workplaces, homes and in public environments. Examples include Blume – chairs and lounge chairs with complementary coffee tables – where German designer Sebastian Herkner explores a floral profile and sustainability in construction.
Robin Rizzini, meanwhile, puts functionality and form at the core of his Toa table. Its modular nature and variety of frame and top finishing allowing you to create a complementary or contrasting look.

A seat at the table
A brace of lounge armchairs are a study in contrasts. The Ila armchair, design by Patrick Jouin begs you to sink into its curvaceous comfort, its headrest ready to cradle you. There’s more than hint of sci-fi about the cone base option.
Another chair has the same multi-use potential, Eugeni Quitllet’s Remind Chair. Here the Catalan designer adds a new element to the collection first introduced in 2018 drawing on the soft, sinuous curves of the wooden chairs of the late 19th Century, reinterpreted in an innovative key. In line with Pedrali’s quest for environmental sustainability, Remind also comes in a version made entirely from recycled material: 50% from plastic material post consumer waste and 50% from plastic material industial waste. The same can be said of Babila XL, an extension to the family by Odo Fioravanti. A chair consisting of a combination of polypropylene and removal fabric with steel legs, it also comes in a 100% recycled alternative.

Al fresco moments
The Panarea, collection design by CMP Design, draws inspiration from the Mediterranean coastline, employing a woven element that adds to the chair’s versatility – this will look as good at the dinner table as outside on a terrace.
Designed for outdoor spaces but also able to be utilised inside, the Reva Twist sofa from Patrick Jouin brings comfort and elegance to any al fresco area. The permutations of this piece – from frame and backrest finishes to fabric colours – mean it can work in any design plan.
