The 2019 edition of the world’s premier event for furnishings and home decor trends — Salone del Mobile — gave the world a good look at the latest trends in furniture and lighting.
This year’s focus area was Euroluce, highlighting new and exciting lighting designs and Workplace3.0, which presented the latest design innovations for the office. An enormous cadre of 2,418 exhibitors presented their designs to more than 386,236 visitors from 181 countries, up 12 per cent over 2017, the last time Euroluce was the featured segment.
The elegance of the Elica table by Zanotta belies the advanced technology that was required to create it. The base is made from Cristalplant®, which is a polyester-resin composite material that incorporates lots of minerals. The new material allows designers to create sinuous shapes that have sculptural strength. The solid coloured base is topped by an acidated crystal top painted in Sahara Noir and topped with a stain-resistant clear matt polyester protective varnish. Elica is a very artful contemporary dining table, which draws attention thanks to its elegantly twisted base.
