Nym is a collection made of solid ash wood which review with a sober design approach the traditional Windsor chairs. The arched elliptical section backrest embraces the person providing extreme comfort, its smoothness invites irresistibly to touch. The shaped seat is the load-bearing element of the structure, even more comfortable in the upholstered versions. The collection includes chairs and armchairs with ash legs, steel rod sled or swivel base. With its domestic aestethic the Nym is suitable for any architectural context.
The Diòniso bed is designed with a large soft headboard on which lean, read and think. The wooden frame has been reinterpreted by ideally overlapping the traditional construction scheme to an armchair scheme. That's why the legs rise to support the tables, similar to armrests, which works as comfortable shelf, rotating and always handy. The warmth of the wood and of upholstered headboard, the tapered and organic lines of the frame, the tactile sweetness of the tables, add a soft human touch to the pragmatic functionalism of the design.
Nolita is a family of outdoor seating which recalls the origins of a historic course, started by Mario Pedrali in 1963 with his first metal garden chairs. The collection seems to arise from the memories of a sunny and lively square, a timeless place, giving birth to simple and iconic shapes. Completely made of steel, it is designed specifically for outdoor use.
The collection includes chairs and armchairs with two different back heights, stools in two different heights, low tables and foldable tables, a lounge chair and a chaise long.
The Knee tap is a new type of kitchen faucet. The object is easy to understand, the components are quite distinct from the use of contrasting materials: the static part is in steel, solid and present, while the spout, with its spherical articulation which allows to orient the flow, is made of integral polyurethane, sterile, soft to touch and constant in temperature. The Knee spout is designed to invite the user to hold it and experience its three-dimensional spatial articulation that provides maximum functionality while working in the kitchen.
Osaka is a collection of seating with a strong graphic impact whose construction elements remind the linear features of an ideogram, due to their pureness and simplicity. Like the oriental writing, where a symbol reaches the peak of the synthesis expressing a world of meanings, the rectilinear profile of Osaka reveals a welcoming three-dimensionality, completed by the tactile wellbeing of ash wood. The collection includes the chairs and the armchairs, with tubular steel legs or steel rod sled frame. The stool have a steel rod sled frame and a low backrest.
The Edge sofa is composed by a rigid shell that embraces a soft and comfortable nest of cushions. There is a very light graphic contrast between the rigid structure and the cushions, and the transition between them is shaped in a natural way. The seat is comfortable and informal, and the several configurations suggest an irresistible relaxation. Thanks to the external frame the couch maintains an elegant and tidy appearance despite the free informality of use.
The Cuzco table’s collection seems to spring from an anthropological sketchbook of an Inca ruins explorer. The object is composed of abstract shapes evoking a remote world, a future or a distant past where you find a so primitive balance that is present in the consciousness of everyone: the geometric constructions of Cuzco resounds the echo of a universal proportion. The Polygonal surfaces stand into the space creating clear light and shade effects, they are like drawing strokes varying in thickness following the direction of the creative act.
The design phase of the Malmö chair is full of handcrafted trials. Starting from the first drawings we have ventured into the manufacture of some study models, exploring the shapes to find the best result in terms of ergonomics. The dialogue with the artisans and the R.D. staff of Pedrali has made possible a detailed study of the project, and a long succession of prototypes drove us to a collection with a warmth feeling, evoking an homely sensation in any architectural context. From 2012 the Malmö family is expanding to new contexts entering in lounge environments, waiting areas and cafes. We create a collection starting from the chair and armchair, now including a lounge chair, a relax armchair, bar stools, tables, extendable tables and coffee tables all made of solid ash frame with tapered legs.
