Pedrali launches six fresh furniture designs to celebrate 60-year anniversary
Promotion: as part of Salone del Mobile 2023, Italian furniture brand Pedrali has released a number of products in collaboration with Italian and international designers for both residential and contract environments.
The new products include seating and tables that are suitable for either indoors or outdoors and are made from a range of materials, including ash, teak and aluminium.
2023 marks Pedrali's 60-year anniversary and the brand's 34th participation at the world's largest design fair, Salone del Mobile, which took place during Milan design week from 18 to 23 April 2023.
Read on to see six of the new products launched by the furniture brand as part of its 60-year anniversary.
Created by Italian design studio CMP Design, Guinea is an aluminium outdoor chair that has an "iconic allure that evokes the concept of lightness and transparency".
The chair has teak armrests and a large aluminium frame. It can be customised in various configurations: with a textilene backrest or with aluminium slats.
The version of the chair with a textilene backrest is reminiscent of traditional director's chairs whereas the version with the backrest in aluminium slats covered in fabric follows a more traditional, archetypical form.
Its backrest, seat and armrests were made to be easy to disassemble in order to replace one of its components or for recycling purposes.
Lamorisse Wood armchair by CMP Design
Also designed by CMP Design, Pedrali's Lamorisse Wood armchair is an indoor chair made from solid ash wood, intended for use in a dining room or restaurant. The chair has a thin metal frame and oval-shaped legs designed to blend with its steam-curved armrests.
The chair increases in thickness near its joints to enhance its strength and is equipped with an embracing cushion made with non-deformable polyurethane foam to ensure user comfort.
Similarly to the Guinea armchair, Lamorisse Wood can be disassembled so that users can replace a component or transport it easily.
Anemos table by Pio & Tito Toso
Anemos is a table designed to showcase the materiality of concrete. The design has a simple and architectural shape and was created to be light yet stable.
Its base is made from two curvaceous concrete shells that are secured to its top, which gives it a "flexible and sinuous shape recalling a structural membrane".
The result is a table that seems "sculpted by the wind" and is capable of supporting large table tops. The matt and slightly shaded surface of the concrete – which comes in natural or clay-coloured hues – is designed to enhance the materiality of the base.
Blume table by Sebastian Herkner
The Blume table, created by German designer Sebastian Herkner, has a flower-shaped profile that features along its entire height.
The design comes with a round central base in either cast iron or steel, while its column is made from extruded aluminium. The table comes in different tops, finishes and sizes for "utmost customisation and versatility".
Narì armchair by Andrea Pedrali
The Narì chair, created by Andrea Pedrali, was informed by the forged-iron garden chairs from Pedrali's 1960s collection. The distinctive feature of the legs – obtained from a double rod forged by hand and bent – is created using a double steel tube that features a simple, linear shape.
The weather-resistant PVC cover with a nylon core – woven by artisans in Italy – tightens towards the lower part of the seat and widens towards the top, which resembles the fan-shaped geometry informed by the backrest of the brand's Serenella armchair.
Both the backrest and seat accommodate a polyurethane foam cushion consisting of two sections joined by a zip. The piece is a tribute to the designer's grandfather, Mario Pedrali, who founded Pedrali.
The Frank table, created by industrial designer Robin Rizzini, was informed by industrial materials and architectural shapes. It features lines and curves that "contribute to conveying an image of lightness and contemporaneity".
The table's base was made from slightly curved die-cast aluminium bases with variable thickness. The top has a rectangular shape with rounded corners and comes in different materials and finishes.
