Windsor Dream, design Manzoni – Tapinassi
The Windsor Dream bed, a masterpiece in design, maintains the correct balance between classic and modern style, characteristic of the sofas in the range. The refined materials, particularly the handmade finishing and the capitonnè upholstery are emblematic of austere and sought after British elegance. The light motif, created by the typical buttons sunk into the upholstery forming rhombus patterns, cover the entire structure, including the headboard. Hence the Windsor Dream bed can even be placed in the centre of the room The velvet version is pure luxury while the leather version is sophisticated richness.

Auto-reverse, design Giuseppe Viganò
The sofa Auto-reverse by Arketipo Firenze, versatile and with a strong personality, derives from the idea of expressing a double soul in the living area. Its apparent casual and untidy look is in contrast with the order and extreme care for the details, to obtain an object with a sharp style and of high quality. The thin structure, elegant and discreet, enwraps and contains the seat cushions, the back and the arms, emphasized by flounces all around the perimeter which grant a definite movement to the line and add a tactile and visual softness to the sofa. The important zip, applied to the four sides of the cushions, fastens the two-sided cover, one in leather and one in fabric, gives rigour to the sofa and underlines its peculiar design. The result is a sofa in which the softness and warmth of the fabric coexists with the elegance of leather. A peculiar mix of materials to create different chromatic combinations and sophisticated matches. The structure seems to float above the ground thanks to the thin, minimal feet made of square section metal.

Inkiostro, design Manzoni – Tapinassi
A linear and adaptable desk complete with leatherette desk pad. The metal insert criss-crossing the base lends a touch of modernity to the purely vintage style of the rest of the piece. The opening of the compartments gives depth and functionality Inkiostro is not only a working desk, but is intended to create a private and comfortable space.
