Refreshingly innovative brühl display
Large numbers of visitors, a wide variety of colours and shapes as well as a creative atmosphere defined the brühl display at this year’s Milan furniture fair. Company manager Roland Meyer-Brühl is thoroughly satisfied with the outcome.
Designer Kati Meyer-Brühl’s latest designs chess and JO are again proof of brühl’s credo: to offer its customers unique, exquisitely finished designer pieces manufactured according to the principles of sustainability. A durable body, combined with separately removable seat and backrest element covers, doubles the life-span of both new designs.
The modular seating concept chess, which consists of various armchair and corner elements, a divan, an ottoman and other additional elements stands for utmost diversity, succinctly expressed in design terms by clear lines, a cuboid basic shape and perfectly matched dimensions.
JO combines smooth, straight surfaces and lines with curved, rounded contours on arm- and backrest elements. The range consists of an armchair with short armrests, an armchair with an elongated armrest either at the left or the right and a wing-like shaped sofa – elements that may be combined in a variety of ways to realise refreshingly individual seating solutions.
Already successful designs such as blanche, morning dew, lemon, dive, roro, jerry and belami were also on display, as well as the urban-style sofa bridge, which features switchable rest elements. Sometimes in bright and sometimes in subtle shades, or covered in Oliva leather, a particularly natural material that is tanned with pure olive leaf extracts.
The generously-sized, open exhibition space, also designed by Kati Meyer-Brühl, created an environment characterised by clarity and contemporariness.
