Ventaglio: the art of living

June 22, 2011

Functional sculpture … table, desk … Ventaglio was designed by Charlotte Perriand in 1972 for her Meribel chalet.

The placement of boards for the top creates a beautiful sculpture … artful.  But, the unusual shape is also multi-functional.  She experimented with a similar organic shape as desk prior to Ventaglio …

… as seen in this office she designed for a newspaper editor in 1938.  The same gull-wing shape exists with Ventaglio to promote use as a desk, but the placement of individual planks creates unique spaces where both small and large groups of people can congregate with intimacy to share a meal or a game of cards.

In both the historic ’38 photo and as above in the present day, use of the LC7 stool as seat provides a beautiful contrast of materials from Perriand’s work … tubular steel and wood.  After all, it was her work with Le Corbusier and Pierre Jennaret to produce the famous “machines for living” during the late ’20s that brought her notoriety as a designer.

In my view, Ventaglio is seems influenced by her life in Japan (1940-46) where Elisabeth Vedrenne says  “In France, the bourgeois mind still confused emptiness with poverty or oblivion.  Accumulate nothing, be Zen — Le Corbusier had already prepared her for this … She became aware of the ideas of rhythm, lightness, transparency, depth of field, of the outside inside, and vice-versa — concepts she had already been playing with since the 1930s … in Japan she found everything she had been looking for.  She found corroboration for her knowledge of design and her pioneering intuitions.  The useful could be beautiful …”  Ventaglio, the art of living embodied.

Red Hot From Milano … LC Series Outdoor

April 30, 2011

“Observed as an ensemble, this first Cassina Outdoor collection set on a lawn, a beach, under a patio exudes a regal air, an aristocratic family portrait en plein air. The collection consists of six pieces that are all part of the history of contemporary design and architecture. Each piece with its strong personality, features a story and an attitude. One way to occupy space, to define it around yourself, in such a strangely natural way yet at the same time both high and noble. An extraordinary ability to overcome time both in body and spirit. Highlighting the essence of a thought at the apex of a highly refined architectural journey, next to the perfection of natural forms, living, changing, highly mobile, unpredictable, eternal. Nature. Culture. Side by side, showing each other respect, vitality, dialogue, communion.”

Extreme outdoor durability in stainless steel, technical fabrics, and naturally resiliant wood.  Extreme elegance for outdoor living.  Only from Cassina. View the complete LC Outdoor collection of sofas, chairs, tables, and chaise by clicking below:
