For over 50 years, Salone del Mobile has been the most important showcase for Italian and international design, and since its birth Lema has participated in the fair with the goal of presenting its soul and its philosophy to its public through the new items in its catalog.
In the course of the past 40 years Lema has come to the attention of the public as a leader in the world of systems, closets and walk-in closets: furnishings which are infinitely variable and personalizable on an industrial level, thanks to innovative and avant-garde technologies. Over time the company has developed a catalog which includes the most varied types of furnishings for daytime and nighttime areas—beds, containers, accessories, tables and seating—which accompany solar ambiences in home environments: traditional materials like wood in its most precious and material finishes are paired with contemporary materials like glass and metal, creating modern furnishings which are at the same time warm and welcoming.
2012: New Designers for New Challenges
These are the themes which the new designers presenting their creations at the fair this year have worked on: Giopato&Coombes and Alessandro Dubini bring the freshness of a young vision of design combined with experience with great architectural studios in Italy and abroad, as well as some of the most important international academic realities; Toan Nguyen brings to Lema his decades-long experience and refined lines. Gordon Guillaumier presents his classic-contemporary approach working with wood and exalting its qualities; Piergiorgio Cazzaniga brings with him the historical design which has been and still is the glory of the Italian furnishings industry. Among the international names are Werner Aisslinger, who represents the best of European design of the northern school focusing on curved and light forms using wood; finally, a collaboration with the Chinese studio Neri&Hu: a team of architects and designers who bring the millennial oriental tradition into their projects, updating shapes and content.
The new designers join their work with that of designers already working with Lema such as Francesco Rota and the Studio Kairos which continue to give their creative contributions through furnishings conceived to underscore the DNA of the brand. via
