At the Salone del Mobile in Milan 2013, Domitalia had a new collection that sees the use of original materials such as cork, special coatings and for the first time, plans ceramic table. As for the best-seller, a complete redesign will affect the outdoor polyethylene models that were presented in its new color cement, while the seats are an enhanced design of the new shades mustard, like brick and burgundy.
Domitalia has given then the new art direction of the pair Andrea Folco Orlandini and Radice, the two designers who collaborate with the Moroso since 2010 and are the main creators of the new 2013 who also signed the entire exhibition stand.
The premiere signed Domitalia is represented by “Bouchon”, the set of furniture that recalls the classic recycled bottle caps champagne corks in the structure, the metal mesh that surrounds them.
The family consists of a seat and a stool with shell structure of cork and metal rod. The models are characterized by a design that is inspired by pop culture and it’s ironic look, expressed here by the contrast between the giant-sized reproduction of the cap and its actual structural lightness.
The regenerated cork is characterized by qualities such as elasticity, strength, durability and water resistance which allows use of the models for both indoor and outdoor, while its origin are from the recycling processes and places “Bouchon” in the category of “green” products.
