VG NEW TREND

VG New Trend presents luxury tableware and lighting collection MUN

Just the charm of a great tradition reinterpreted in a contemporary way. Artisans’ experience, purity of forms, light. This is MUN, the new VG collection where matter seduces and charms.
 

Mun lighting collection be VG New Trend via Masha Shapiro Agency UK.jpg

MUN is a collection of luxury tableware and ceiling lamps, individually or chandeliers, entirely handmade in Italy by Master craftsmen committed to excellence. Every single object is the result of a creative procedure, an harmonious alchemy between form and substance. Every single piece, forged by artisans who hand down ancient techniques, just like the classical glass blowing with a cannula, has the added value of uniqueness where the precision of the forms, brilliance and the quality of the manufacturing convert the creative act into magical and charming light effects.
 

In the MUN lamps, the steady leading light meets no obstacles by the limpid transparency of our Pure manufacturing; it is harmoniously guided by our Pleated finishing; it supports the fluctuating and Baroque sinuosities of the Twist surface. Different sparkle effects, better personalised through colours suggested with a palette of six evocative and refined tones: lead, cameo, aquamarine, rose quartz, angora and baltic.

VG New Trend in Milan: Giorgio Ragazzini and Flower Power

VG New Trend participates in creating very distinct environments, spaces in which you can escape from reality, spaces in which you can breathe and dream. Bringing nature into your home, giving it space in the garden, building a colourful and decorated house, placing brilliant objects in bright lights with a glamorous touch, regaining contact with the authenticity of an object created from a typically Italian concept and culture, a unique mix of furnishings to decorate spaces with a distinct identity, one of a kind, not modern, not classic, yet able to communicate with any style. This year VG New Trend stands in Milan drew inspiration from Nature and Art and were the talk of both Salone del Mobile and Euroluce. Discover the latest collection, materials and colours.

Flower Power

Flower Power is an ode to the spring, an enchanting awakening of nature featuring bright colours and delicate nuances. Flower Power is a triumph of rose-coloured tulips, which illuminates unique and charming environments in a truly original way. This special, fascinating light source, which is exclusively custom made, consists of a large number of artificial tulips, or a choice of other types of flowers all created by VG, in between which Murano glass lamps with LED lighting are harmoniously placed. Flower Power is a ceiling luminaire designed for both domestic environments and contract spaces, to be used either as an ornament or as an efficient light source.

Cortina

Nature, in its most diverse forms and variations, continues to play a key role for VG. A source of inspiration for the new collection of Cortina small tables is trees, or rather the inner section of tree trunks, the core of the plant. Two round glass surfaces envelop a thin sheet of wood taken from the horizontal cut of a tree trunk, showing the longevity of the plant in all its beauty, to be seen in its many concentric circles. Two different metal structures with a satin gold finish support the tabletop, allowing you to choose between the two different table heights available. Measurements: D85x h 41 cm and D85 x 31 cm

Kidman Easy Chair

Inspired by Moulin Rouge, the musical directed by Baz Luhrmann starring Nicole Kidman, the easy chair extols the bohemian spirit, typified in the four keywords of the feature film – Freedom, Beauty, Truth, Love.
Quirky and whimsical, Moulin Rouge is spectacular stagecraft and surrealism, in keeping with the spirit of Paris of the time – dominated, from a visual point of view, by "Deco" shapes, soft and velvety materials, vibrant colours.
In addition to the easy chair, the Kidman collection designed by Giorgio Ragazzini for VG also includes pouffe and day-bed.

Salone Del Mobile 2017: Stefano Boeri Architects for Annibale Colombo

The revival of a piece of furniture that is part of the Italian domestic tradition, through the partnership between Annibale Colombo’s company and Architect Stefano Boeri.
Evoking the traditional Italian cupboards, METTITUTTO is a piece of furniture designed to house the number of accessories we carry along with us every day. Objects and tools that need to be gathered in one place when we get back home: keys, gloves, candies, cell phones, chargers, headphones, wallets, glasses, hats, helmets, magazines, parcels, letters, invitations, business cards…
Located at the house entrance, METTITUTTO is a group of different rotating containers with a shelving unit open on both sides and a system of drawers and shelves.
METTITUTTO is produced by Annibale Colombo in a sophisticated combination of wood, glass and leather and it’s available in 3 sizes: h. 190,  h. 150 and  h. 110 cm.

It is possible to personalise the external and internal shell and to choose the glass colouring. The products are available with or without LED light plugged-in within the shell, at shelf level. In the Mettitutto model with LED it is possible to have a USB port, built-in in the wooden shell.

Six different typologies of containers and drawers make the piece of furniture customisable and fitted to meet any need. Each element can be repositioned both at different levels and in each single glass shelf. For each single drawer it is possible to select the accessory which fits its use best. A wide range of accessories for filing and organising little objects is available. There is a set of springs which can be stuck within the glass shelves to hang all kinds of stuff.

Ulivi Salotti at Design Centre Chelsea Harbour

London Design Week has come and gone, as swift and full of wonders as usual! We had the pleasure to admire wonderful new designs at the Design Centre in Chelsea Harbour, and we also got a pretty good feel of this year’s emerging trends in home décor and interior styling.

But perhaps the most beautiful highlight of the week-long event was the Ulivi Salotti talk, generously hosted by Passerini and led by Antonio Bibolini, export manager for the eminent furniture manufacturing brand.

Mr Bibolini presented a superb video introducing the artisanal craftsmanship and impeccable traditions stemming from centuries old Tuscan manufacturing techniques, and took the audience on a fascinating journey through the world of fine leather.

Most of you may already know that Ulivi Salotti are experts in leather furniture – from incredibly comfortable sofas, built layer upon layer of detail and quality, to beds, seats and various surfaces. During the talk, we all had the pleasure to not just look but also feel the different leathers that the Italian brand use for their interior creations.

As previously mentioned in a previous article, Ulivi Salotti are extraordinarily proficient at crafting beautiful, functional and incredibly comfortable furniture. Their attention to detail and love of traditional artisanal techniques set them apart on the high-end market, and they only make their furniture to order.

By establishing a close relationship with their clients, Ulivi Salotti make sure that whatever they manufacture, it goes through a rigorous design and production process. The lead times are good, and very based on the complexity of the order – but one thing is guaranteed; the end result is flawless.

Our clients, both private residents and interior design studios love Ulivi Salotti for this particular reason, so it’s always a pleasure to bring them closer to the Tuscan brand during events like London Design Week.

Watch the video below and immerse yourself in the experience:

Timeless Classic Furniture by Annibale Colombo

Dear Friends,

we are happy to share with you yet another project we realised with Annibale Colombo. Even if the images are just CGIs, the final client is satisfied and that is exactly what we are aiming for.

Bespoke Library

A new image of the bookcase realised with top and basement in solid cherry wood, with details in Zebrano. This veneer is also used for the side parts of the library. The modules are in specially balanced multilayer with veneer in arable and edges in solid brass, bronze finished. The doors with solid wooden frame in relief and brass handles, have the central panels covered with leather and are perfectly matching with the central module, characterised by the brass handles.

To be also noted the elegant coffee table (art. O1266), with brass profiles all over the top, perfectly matches with the finish of the bookcase.

Bespoke Dining Table

The table is showed in the attached pictures both in the standard version with diameter 150 cm and in the special rectangular size of 380x160 cm, with double basement together with the dining chairs (art. B1501) and the matching floor lamp (art. Z1596).

The table is part of the collection “Balance”, that combines the precious Zebrano veneers for the dining room and Sucupira for the bedroom, with solid milled and curved brass to grant a pleasant three-dimensional effect to the table frame.

Trusting that you’ll appreciate and they’ll be helpful for your future project presentation to the clients, we remain at your disposal for any necessity or clarification.
