Salone del Mobile Shanghai 2019

November, from 20th to 22nd

Shanghai Exhibition Center West Hall, Second Floor, Stand WS32

At the Salone Internazionale del Mobile Milano.Shanghai 2019, Paolo Castelli S.p.A. renewes its presence, participating for the third time. Evocative scenarios reveal a new concept of contemporary living, the synthesis of a journey of sophisticated and meticulous research to achieve a distinctive and immediately recognisable Italian style.

The roots of the 2019 collection lie in the interpretation of the aesthetic principles typical of the Thirties and it is conceived to elegantly furnish refined contemporary homes with harmonious contaminations between the worlds of design and fashion. Furniture and accessories enhance both aesthetics and functional aspects, drawing graphic lines that perfectly balance tradition and innovation, timeless values of this design firm from Bologna.
The study of shape becomes the hallmark of the Collection, with ribbed, moulded and stitched motifs, made sublime by artisan crafting of exclusive fabrics which guarantee the utmost comfort and elegance. Furnishings and chairs “born in the Thirties”, upholstered in sumptuous velvets embellished with 3D patterns. The hides feature textures and thicknesses that reflect textiles, like the new nubuck leather printed with a woven motif, symbolising style and elegance. Prestigious glossy and semi-glossy leathers contrast with matt finish leathers to create a textured effect of colours and volumes. The colour palette features earthy shades, ranging from hazelnut to dove-grey, brought to life by bright notes of citron yellow, grass green and ruby red. The transparencies of back-lacquered glass, the encounter between polished brass finishes and the pale shades of the marble tops embellish structures and profiles, celebrating Paolo Castelli’s exclusive savoir-faire.

Tribute to the architect and poet, Carlo Scarpa
The style of Carlo Scarpa has inspired the birth of an attractive and enveloping space, which leaves an indelible mark on the memory of visitors to the show. A thought capable of breathing life into the design, arranging the spaces in a way that reflects Scarpa’s work, on a human scale, prioritising the viewpoint of the spectator. The large arch creates an upward stretch towards the sky, typical of the Venetian artist’s designs, defining an open space in which we can all communicate in absolute harmony with the settings and scenarios presented here for the very first time.
