From the creative genius of one of one of the most versatile performers of contemporary design an original wood in soft Alcantara.
Thus it was born Alcantara-Wood, a project conceived by Nendo design study that, using one of the peculiarities of Alcantara, the characteristic of supporting the raw cut without fraying, highlights the extreme flexibility of this coating material.
Rolling and gluing various layers in different colors, nendo creates a kind of trunk, cut longitudinally, creates tables with caressing veins.
The study of Japanese design has led to its extreme Alcantara, using it to create a new perception, almost a new material presented in a stretch in which the eye plunges. The versatility of his nature is so pushed up to a real metamorphosis, creating a solution that draws on the invoice the craftsmanship of the inlays of master cabinetmakers, revisited by the Japanese composure and sense of proportion for shapes and colors.
The result is a completely original wood, to cover the furnishings with the soft touch of Alcantara.
The inspiration for this extraordinary project came from the invitation to designers to take part along with other great interpreters of modernity, the exhibition "Alcantara, Technology of Dreams" at the Palazzo Reale in Milan from April to 23 31 May 2015.
The unique setting of the rooms of the Prince, full of memories and ideas of the past, it was an opportunity to give new proof of the outstanding features of Alcantara through site-specific works. Beauty, flexibility, tactility, enveloping and transformability have been the installed base that Gentucca Bini - Giulio Cappellini - Ingo Maurer - Paola Navone - Best and Servetto and nendo - have been able to imagine in a fantastic dimension made possible by high technology.
In "La stanza del Principe", designed by the Japanese design studio, an immaculate stage hosted sessions in precious Alcantara Wood.
