Salone del Mobile is back to Milan and with her the natural mess of one of the world’s biggest luxury furniture. Urban Tree Lounge is a project signed by Minneapolis-based heavyweight 3M with the collaboration of the local firm Stefano Boeri Architetti.

Take a deep breath in Urban Tree Loung and get ready for the 55th annual Salone Del Mobile – the place where design industry converges, in Milan. The installation uses nonwovens, 3M’s films and adhesives to create  a kaleidoscope of dancing light. At the urban tree base, iSalone visitors can recline on a mini landscape constructed with 3M Nomad Matting  while watching the conceptual arbor made of 3M reflective film. A funny and bright game of lights with the best of design creativity and innovation: this is the definition of Milan Design Week and Urban Tree Lounge.

“[The] conceptual tree, like an organic one, absorbs, filters, and mirrors the sunlight to create a shadow to reflect and recharge. It’s my hope that this prototype can influence creative approach to design in public spaces.”, says Stefano Boeri, CEO of Stefano Boeri Architetti.

MOROSO LAUNCHES DOUBLE ZERO CHAIR BY DAVID ADJAYE http://www.bocadolobo.com/en/news-and-events/design-products/moroso-launches-double-zero-chair-by-david-adjaye/ http://www.bocadolobo.com/en/news-and-events/design-products/moroso-launches-double-zero-chair-by-david-adjaye/#comments Thu, 08 Oct 2015 17:01:34 +0000 http://www.bocadolobo.com/en/news-and-events/?p=2410 Meet the story behind the first seating range designed for the italian furniture brand Moroso told by architect David Adjaye.

Adjaye’s Double Zero range of chairs, which Moroso launched at the Salone del Mobile furniture fair in Milan this year, features two circular padded cushions as the seat and backrest.

These are supported by a frame of bent stainless steel tubes, which are welded together where they touch.

“I developed the Double Zero series to be really padded and cushioned and then worked on a metal framing system that would be slightly complicated,” Adjaye explains in the movie, which was filmed at Moroso’s showroom in London.

“The frame really talks about the power and opportunity of welding.”

The Double Zero chair comes in a variety of different chrome finishes, with a choice of plain or patterned upholstery.

It is also available as a bar stool and a small two-seater sofa, with a pair of pads placed side by side.

“The design has a very strong signature, but is very much able to become a family,” the architect says.

Adjaye originally designed the chair for the Aïshti Foundation, a new cultural centre by Adjaye Associates in Beirut, Lebanon, which is due to be completed this year.

“It’s an art foundation, retail and a wellness centre all in one,” he explains. “I wanted a chair that didn’t look like production furniture that had been ordered in. I wanted it to feel like it was part of the architecture.”

Adjaye showed the designs to Moroso creative director Patrizia Moroso, who immediately wanted to produce the chair.

“Very quickly she said, ‘I really love it and I’d like to take it on as our first collaboration,’” he recalls. “So what started off as a series of sketches about a building quickly became my first full range with Moroso, which is very exciting.”

He continues: “Patrizia totally understands design and totally understands when a designer has an intuition. She’s able to really sense that very quickly.”
