Dialogue between natural realities and artificial Foliage, the sofa clearly bears the graphic hallmark of Patricia Urquiola as an object that looks as if it just grew naturally in plastic. The leaves form a crown resting on a framework of branches which virtually form a seat. Foliage is a sofa with great personality featuring a seat with top-stitched embroidery on four round legs. Cosy and soft, Foliage offers two roomy seats. The top-stitching runs over the entire surface and on the back too making the sofa a standalone piece that can be placed even in the centre of a room and seen from all sides.

“The Invisibles Light” is as if hiding its appearance to escape from this material world. It melts into people’s daily lives like the air.
They were an exceptionally experimental pieces made out of the transparent blocks of acrylic. The poetic, yet dynamical presences reveal the essence of the pieces, and leave a mysterious scenery. The Invisibles goes beyond the concept of the products, and holds the quality as an art piece.
The Bloom pendant lamp was designed by Ferruccio Laviani for Kartel. Bloom blossoms forth in a scintillating and lavish cascade of crystalline flowers. It is an elegant suspension light composed of tiny flowers that create thousands of reflections of light when illuminated. The result is an industrially produced lamp with the form and stylistic complexities of the unique hand-made artefact.
It comes in an original hanging version: a cylindrical version suggestive of the silhouette of an hour glass figure. There are three single-colors for the lamp: total transparency and opaque white for a refined ethereal effect, plus a sexy pink and black mix.

Below Tokujin Yoshioka talks about his new collection entitled “The Invisibles” and his shop installation “Snowflake.”
You are presenting both product and installation in collaboration with Kartell this year. Please talk about the projects?
As a special collaboration between Claudio Luti and Tokujin Yoshioka, I am presenting “The Invisibles” collections and a shop installation entitled “Snowflake”. Recent years, I find myself often proposing designs, which incorporate the essence of natural phenomena and invisible elements.
The idea of the “Invisibles” initiates in the discussion I had with Mr. Claudio Luti almost two years ago. We both looked at the possibility to develop and express a new product in acrylic, which inherits the essence of optical glass bench “Water Block”.
It has been thought nearly impossible to create an industrial product in acrylic of this thickness. However, their innovative techniques and motivation and challenge to create a new product with a fresh dimension to idea have made it possible.
“The Invisibles” only leaves the sense as if seating in the air. The presence of the object is eradicated and it will create a scenery of a sitter floating in the air.
What is your vision for transparent material?
I am drawn by things that do not have forms but leave emotional effect to people. At a glance, such material is invisible and its existence is erased. Through the interaction with light, however, the form suddenly emerges. I am fascinated not only with such phenomena, but also elements that can stir and stimulate our imagination. I also like the idea of light, which is the form of design itself.
