By now you have probably memorized the dates for Salone del Mobile 2017. And you really should, because this year, from April 4th until the 9th, the trade show is coming in full force and some of the best luxury design brands in the world will be there, and Boca do Lobo is one of them.
A dynamic process of innovation, of both technology and design, forces us into a continual reinterpretation of the brand. Aspects of our philosophy also remain constant: the high quality of the final product is always a priority. All this is translated into our consistent search for anything that can bring more value to our pieces, adding and reinventing in new contexts to provide the best.
“Each handmade piece of furniture is a medley of various materials. The workshop now spawns an expanding range of custom-made and limited edition furniture that blends futuristic vision with almost-forgotten artisan techniques.”
This year we have launched 10 new pieces. Each one represents the main character in the story Boca do Lobo is telling. A visual plot that allies timeless elegance and refinement to a constant transformation in the creative process, proving an adaptation to a contemporary language while preserving their deep origins in the Portuguese culture.
BOCA DO LOBO’S NEW PIECES AT SALONE DEL MOBILE
One of the biggest contemporary trade show that will bring us exclusive and fascinating contemporary designs is about to take place in Milan. About 2,000 exhibitors will be showing their wares across a display area that exceeds the 200,000 m2. These impressive figures, along with the thousands of products being unveiled for the first time, confirm the Salone del Mobile’s enormous value as an international showcase for creativity and a forum for industry professionals, with more than 300,000 visitors expected to attend from over 165 different nations.
Inspired by the contrast of aesthetics, the romanticism of practice, the perfection of imperfection and the balance of Minimal Maximalism, Boca do Lobo brings up contemporary design and Portuguese tradition with the release of eleven new designs. With more product typologies, we strength new fields such as lighting and upholstery, offering interior designers a plenty of options for their projects.
Imperfectio Sofa is the expression of imperfect aesthetic the appeal of that which is authentic art that is truer to life. Imperfectio Sofa praises artisanal work as the ultimate form of art that is quite intentionally imperfect.
Chesterfield armchair is our tribute to England’s most iconic armchair. The inspiration of this classic leathered sofa is rooted back in 1800’. There’s something intrinsically luxurious and old fashioned about the chesterfield products. Besides, following the concept of the latest design series we´ve launched in 2016 – Metamorphosis – we´ve also presented new center and side tables, composed of glass and marble, that will stand out due to their simplest and straight lines”, he continues.
The enormous success of the Metamorphosis Series gave birth yet to another unique creation – Metamorphosis Side Table. Similar to the dramatic transformation and the sudden change in the animal’s body structure, Metamorphosis Side Table experiences new unexpected design techniques, noble finishes through a meticulous artistic process. The center table is composed of two fragments, finished in mirror and noble marble and beautified by the presence of golden creatures that are prepared for their ultimate metamorphosis.
L’Chandelier is a dreamy, elegant and luxurious lighting piece, incomparable and impressive as the romantic Champs-Élysées avenue, frequently described “la plus belle avenue du monde” (“the world’s most beautiful avenue”). This luxurious symbol of Paris transformed into this beautiful handcrafted, polished brass Chandelier.
Supernova Chandelier was born from the cataclysmic explosion of a massive star. The instant of a bright starburst that was suspended into a fascinating lighting design. Supernovas can briefly outshine entire galaxies and radiate more energy than our sun will in its entire lifetime.
Boca do Lobo´s latest endeavor based itself on the desire to offer a greater variety of products. The feeling of exclusivity engages our brand and takes it to a higher level of demand. Those were, once again, the values behind the creation of the Limited Edition new pieces.
The enormous success of the Metamorphosis Series gave birth yet to another unique creation – Metamorphosis Scones. Similar to the dramatic transformation and the sudden change in the animal’s body structure, Metamorphosis Sconces experiences new unexpected design techniques, noble finishes through a meticulous artistic process.
Magma Mirror found its inspiration deep beneath the surface of the Earth, where three physical parameters: temperature, pressure, and composition are responsible for creating something so complex and potent. Magma Mirror’s subtle lines are the result of a precisely handcrafted process.
After the huge success of Metamorphosis Series, Boca do Lobo creates Metamorphosis Dining Table in order to strengthen this unique concept. This luxury dining table has come to symbolize the evolutionary history of life, representing the last stage of the cycle through the usage of sculpted fossils on display at the top of the table.
