Concept

The small series of black and white furnishings by the Swedish group Front, which work on the interaction between two-dimensional decoration and object, are suitable for both the day areas as well as the bedroom. Light and poetic signifiers - curtains that quiver as though brushed by a hand, flounce fabrics, regular square areas - cover three-dimensionally the surfaces of three furnishing items: a vertical cabinet, a sideboard and a wall-mounted horizontal storage unit with coplanar doors, designed for those who do not forget emotions in furnishing. The optical effect of these detailed designs, applied to doors, side and back panels of three Modern modules creates a trompe l’œil effect that deceives the gaze and transports us into the world of fairytales, where square forms are softened by gentle fabrics and threads in movement, for a more intimate and feminine living environment. This small new collection that confuses appearance and reality, represents the conceptual follow-up to the material research of Material House, the collection conceived in 2007 by Piero Lissoni, personalising through finishes hand applied to the most representative pieces of the Porro catalogue.
