Interpreting the art of hospitality
As happened for the Carimate chair, designed by Vico Magistretti for the restaurant of the Carimate Club House, the Albereta chair (Philippe Nigro), takes its name from the beautiful Relais & Chateaux on Bellavista hill in Erbusco. It marks the partnership between DePadova and the Holding Terra Moretti, owner of a large resort, started in 2013 for the development of a complete interior design project. It was focused on the Greeniege Lounge, the Vistalago Bistro, the Leonefelice Restaurant, as well as supplying furniture for the terraces that open onto the nearby Lake Iseo and the large park where the ancient Neo-Renaissance villa and the exclusive dependence are located. In this articulated project the DePadova pieces have been able to interpret the art of hospitality, wellness and relaxation, giving character to every single corner and living environment and establishing an effective dialogue between contemporary and classical context. The objective was achieved thanks to the poetics of the different designers in the catalog, capable of sensitive aesthetic evolution of archetypes, a liaison of a timeles, exclusive and comfortable taste of quality. The balance between creativity and shape innovation of Vico Magistretti (Raffles sofa, library Tani Moto, Tondo armchairs and Louisiana armchair) the purity of Patrick Nourget (Chesto chairs), the comparison with tradition of Patricia Urquiola (Bergère chair, Mantis table), the personal experimentation of Michele De Lucchi (chairs Donzella), the nomadic design of Paolo Golinelli (Sundance chairs) and the multiethnicity of Aksu/Suardi (Framura outdoor chairs) all helped in creating a composite language, accompanied by the Pouf Capitonné, iconic and current in their perfect mix of form, craftsmanship and rich materials.
