Design Xavier Lust

Collaboration between Pianca and the Belgian designer Xavier Lust takes shape Confluence, the new table with laminated soft touch and steel structure.
The trial on the metal, which has always characterized the work of Lust, meets the experience of Pianca in woodworking thereby creating an elegant and organic. The steel structure is in its sinuous curves and at the same time dynamic, giving the idea of ​​having maintained the consistency of the malleable deformation process to which the material has been subjected.
With a fluid motion steel legs converge, holding the floor that seems to levitate. The multiple finishes allow the tables, rectangular, round and elliptical to adapt to different styles.




The chair Cora represents the final result of a research on the aesthetics of different materials, such as wood, plastic and metal, and an effort to make them coexist in a simple object as a session. Wood, for the strength of the seat, the plastic for a back elastic and snug, the metal legs that have maintained a visual lightness. A complex work done in close contact with the technicians of the molding to draw connections and hugs between materials that were together beautiful and respectful of the rules of resistance. With a result that is an instant classic.




Intro The chair is distinguished by its particular form, characterized by the two loops that create relief on the back a cintura. Intro stands for "introverted", just because this form reminds a person of shyness keeps his arms crossed behind his back. Its characteristic three-dimensional agreed to have a backrest of even more generous dimensions of the seat and to convey to the viewer looks inviting. And as a plus, the three-dimensionality has made it possible to draw the metal structures that support the body in order to make stackable chair.
