Vienna Straw is made from rushes (drawn rushes) and is cut into long, thin strips ranging from 1.75 to 3.00 mm in width, giving it a high degree of strength. Vienna straw has a surface as smooth as plastic and was originally used for the construction of small accessories and for stuffing chair seats.

Vienna straw is resistant and can withstand even very high loads. Thanks to these characteristics, Vienna straw in metre lengths is ideal for replacing or making new seats and backs of chairs and sofas, both antique and modern.

Why Vienna straw? Because from the mid-19th century, the chairs produced by Gebrüder Thonet in Vienna were a worldwide success and became a style icon.

In the last two years, some modern furniture manufacturers, such as Miniforms, have started to offer various types of furniture made entirely or partly of Vienna straw: beds, screens, armchairs and chairs…

Art applied to design. This will be the new trend for next year; almost a collaboration between sophisticated yet functional design and art in order to create minimal environments with surprising visual impact.

Design is a creative process that finds inspiration in many fields. Sometimes, artistic influences from the past are brought back to the modern world. Some others are at the vanguard of other disciplines.

All this process has given rise to various collections consisting of furniture with artistic shapes and finishes without losing the functionality and comfort necessary to be used every day. A clear example is the Museo collection by Spanish company Sancal that thanks to the collaboration with various designers has created furniture that could be exhibited in a museum and at the same time be used in your home.

The main feature of these collections is the technical complexity of the shapes, a real exercise in abstraction and engineering to support comfort, without sacrificing strength and stability.

The design is minimal and essential but not too much; the house will not look bare and “sad” but instead, thanks to the wide range of coatings specially designed, it will be overall harmonious and extremely elegant.

The 2021 design industry will focus on honoring artistic creation in all its facets: elegance of the form, the classic references as well as a select choice of fabrics for the upholstery.

Iconic furniture:

The best design furniture with a vintage touch are definitely those belonging to the famous companies Knoll, Vitra or BD Barcelona Design… Their products can be perfectly combined with the most innovative materials such as fenix or the new antibacterial surfaces, which are treated with a silver ion compound and eliminate 99.9% of germs, viruses and bacteria that proliferate and lurk in the home.

Ceramic:

Many of the trends of the moment have seen the revival of elements that seemed to have gone out of fashion, re-proposed today as exclusive solutions with a vintage-chic soul. One of these is certainly the rediscovery of marble-effect ceramics as the top of dining tables.

Vienna straw:

Another element that is back in vogue, revisited in a modern key, is the so-called “Vienna straw”, famous thanks to the famous “bistro chairs”, produced by hand weaving the straw. A poor and natural element by definition, which today is reproposed as a refined and elegant complement on seats, tables, headboards, lamps and accessories.

The 5 most comfortable design armchairs of 2020: enveloping, soft and obviously very chic.

kristalia brioni collection

Beautiful to see and even more enjoyable to use! This is the trend for 2020 with collections of upholstered armchairs with original design focused on comfort and intensive use of the product itself.

kristalia tenso collection

Let’s discover together the models and features of the 5 most comfortable design armchairs of 2020!

Kristalia Brioni armchair

Inspired by the Adriatic Sea archipelago of the same name, Brioni is a collection of seats consisting of lounge chairs, daybeds and poufs with a soft and full look. Designed initially for outdoor use, the six Brioni elements have been redesigned by LucidiPevere for domestic use: the entire surface of the seat is now upholstered in fabric or leather, without the dark lower band that avoided contact with the ground.

Kristalia Tenso armchair

Designed by Luca Nichetto, Tenso is a system composed of padded elements inspired by tensile structures. The fulcrum of the system is the frame, a light and solid tubular structure on which the various elements – seats, backrests, cushions and table tops – are fixed, creating a tension that keeps the various parts suspended and open, like a welcoming embrace. The upholstered elements, to be combined at will to create armchairs, sofas, sofas with peninsula or pouf, even with built-in table tops, are soft and comfortable, while the fabric or leather upholstery features tailored details.

Fritz Hansen Egg armchair

The Egg is one of the triumphs of Jacobsen’s total design – a sculptural contrast to the building’s almost exclusively vertical and horizontal surfaces. The Egg sprang from a new technique, which Jacobsen was the first to use; a strong foam inner shell underneath the upholstery. Experience originality and design that ages with beauty with the Egg in leather and indulge in its sculptural curves that will last for generations.

Sancal Alpino armchair

The designer took inspiration by nature and in particular by mountains. The soft peaks of the base and back cushions overlap, just like a mountain range. The backrest nestles your head in a comfortable position; ideal for binge-watching, reading or dozing off after a walk in the countryside. A serene and simple design, not without constructive complexity due to its unique arm shapes and the soft yet thin backrests. The Alpino armchair is available in 2 different models and in a wide range of upholsteries and colours in order to satisfy all user’s tastes.
