exhibition stand brühl Internazionale del Mobile 2017 in Milan
Salone Internazionale del Mobile 2017, Milano
Pluralism of forms – this could have been the motto for brühl’s 2017 presentation at the Salone Internazionale del Mobile. The ‘stage’ for the individually designed and exibly usable interior concepts had been developed by Kati Meyer-Brühl, and was based on soft colours and natural materials.
Kati’s new sofa embrace – highly acclaimed already at imm cologne for its convenient relaxation at the push of a button and its cool, yet cosy design – was widely approved in Milan, too. It was shown here as a new four-seater, to be complemented by a long bench with a movable table, for instance. Kati’s most recent creation, the ligree libellule upholstered chair, with a wing- shaped backrest and a round seat-base with decorative seams, was presented in airy groups of chairs. Her mosspink sofa – a milestone of eco-friendly, sustainable design for more than ten years – was introduced in a new version with an additional semi-circular rest element.
In 2016, mosspink and some more of Kati’s designs have been included into a design exhibition as part of the Venice Biennale of Architecture.
Additional news in brühl’s Milan presentation included the stool/occasional table mink, with rounded edges and circular cut- outs at the sides; the les copains bungee wickerwork chairs with pleasantly elastic seats made from bungee cords; the lac- quered, colourful grace glossy armchairs; and the grace bungee armchairs with detailing made from bungee cords.
