Armani Casa salutes natural world at Salone del Mobile
Nature runs as a leitmotif throughout Armani Casa’s 2021 collection, from earthy neutral and oceanic tones to animal-print textures
Like many of us living through a lengthy period of lockdown, Giorgio Armani has, of late, been keen to reconnect with nature. The creative master’s latest collection for Armani Casa, which debuts this week at Salone del Mobile 2021, looks to bring the serenity of the great outdoors inside, and features interior pieces, including a limited-edition bar cabinet, a writing desk, a screen and soft furnishings, in tones and textures that salute nature, from oceanic hues and earthy neutrals to exotic animal prints.
For entertaining, Armani Casa has expanded its bar furniture offering, with the introduction of a limited-edition drinks cabinet, with curvaceous cylindrical sides, which also form the legs of the design. In a nod to Oriental culture – a longstanding inspiration for Mr Armani – the design, which is limited to 88 pieces, is layered with a Japanese tatami-style paper and cotton covering. Its naturalistic internal structure is construced using marble and mother of pearl.
Armani Casa also encourages a night of gaming with your tipple of choice, presenting the regenerated-leather ‘Regni’ throw, which doubles as a large-scale chessboard.
Armani Casa: bringing the great outdoors in
Geometry and lightness define Armani Casa’s desk and soft furnishings, which include the understated ‘Rousseau’ desk, leopard print-swathed armchair and minimalist ‘Rosemond’ table in rich ash and satin-finish pale brass. For the bedroom and kitchen, the brand proposes a range of pieces, including the fabric-covered ‘Roomy’ boxes, which make for sublime storage, plus the ‘Robespierre’ barbecue set and ‘Rowan’ table accessories, which include marble-effect resin bento boxes and a jug with glasses.
In a further emphatic nod to the great outdoors, Armani Casa also proposes a range of garden accessories for 2021. These include the ‘Pump’ selection of home fitness accessories, an animal print throw, and the ‘Rovo’ set, a striking check gardening bag complete with steel and wooden tools, for when you feel keen to get green fingered. §
