designed by Raffaella Mangiarotti
made by Pianca
The rustling of the wind echoes in the silence of nature: a visual reference to canes, creating light, evocative and reassuring pieces of furniture. The new Palù collection portrays a concept of small-scale architecture, formed from the relationship between presence and absence. The distinctive features of these complements, a bedside table and bench seat, are the linear effect of solids and empty spaces, and profound harmonies. The curves created using a sequence of wooden rods define the space, indicating the sense of the limit in a neat and feminine series. The frame embraces suspended volumes, made out of air: an upholstered seat, a Vienna straw shelf, elegant drawers. In the bedside table, the round drawer rotates towards the bed, transforming into a second shelf.

MEET THE DESIGNER
Slender and delicate, her objects transmit a sense of subtle lightness. Originally from Pavia, Raffaella Mangiarotti graduated with a degree in Architecture from the Politecnico di Milano with Tomás Maldonado and took her first steps in the world of design at the studio of Marco Zanuso. She went on to get a PhD in Environmental Design. Following in the footsteps of the grand masters of 20th century design, Raffaella Mangiarotti has a functionalist and rationalist approach to design. In twenty years, she has designed practically everything, studying operating mechanisms. She has designed many electronic devices and appliances, shifting the focus of her work from the performance that the object can achieve to the sense of precise detail and serenity that it can transmit.
