2014 REVOLUTIONARY SLIDE COLLECTION DEBUTS AT GIBRALTAR FURNITURE

Gibraltar Furniture is proud to announce that it has unveiled the new 2014 SIDE collection on line at www.gibraltarfurntiure.com.

Image

This revolutionary brand is made in Italy and was established  in 2002. SLIDE benefits from over 20 years of experience in manufacturing plastic resins, acquired through earlier production experiences in the housewares and gardening sectors.  SLIDE was the very first Italian design company to produce illuminated furniture made of polyethylene, with a successful formula soon exported worldwide. Today SLIDE’s activity is complemented by SLIDE EVENTS,a services brand specialized in integrated management of private and corporate events, and by the SLIDE art project.

Image

SLIDE’s production includes seats, tables, lamps, bar counters, pots, shelves and much more. The company’s enormous capacity for both productivity and creativity allows the introduction of one new product (on the average) every month – transversal, heterogeneous and unusual items in which subtle light and bright colors blend in a powerful and distinctive manner, creating a unique and evocative atmosphere.  The company has recently expanded its offer working on two parallel fronts – by introducing a line of lacquered objects (suitable for a high-end, luxury market) and by broadening the range of  production processes (injection and polyurethane foam molding) and materials (now including  polypropylene, HPL and polyurethane).

Image

To develop its projects, SLIDE partners with internationally acclaimed designers such as  Marc Sadler, Karim Rashid, Marcel Wanders, Paola Navone, Alessandro Mendini, Stefano Giovannoni and Marco Acerbis, striving to create quality products and conquer a position
on the medium to top segment of the market. These high-profile partnerships are complemented by a constant investment on talented young designers, very rich in potential although at times little known.

Being made of only one material, SLIDE’s products are fully recyclable. In addition,  it is corporate practice that the output of one production line is used as input for the next one,  thus avoiding any waste of materials. The whole illuminated range of products is also available with rechargeable batteries or a LED lighting system, allowing maximum energy saving.

MERCEDES BENZ FURNITURE COLLECTION DEBUTS

Gibraltar Furniture recently returned from Italy where we had the privilege of previewing the new Furniture Collection by Mercedes-Benz Style before it’s debut this month.

1367646904livingdesigntaiwandel04.13pag.186 1367646927livingdesigntaiwandel04.13pag.187 1380645583architecturevivrefsetott13pag.48 1380837827surfacesreporterindiadel09.13pag.77 1380837856surfacesreporterindiadel09.13pag.78 1380837888surfacesreporterindiadel09.13pag.79

This collection is a dynamic and extremely light form incorporating precious materials that have been finished perfectly. The Furniture Collection by Mercedes-Benz Style brings the unmistakable use of lines and high quality of Mercedes-Benz indoors. It reflects the progressive, dynamic design idiom of the current show cars and offers the exclusive emotional experience of Mercedes-Benz in private living spaces and business premises.

Mercedes-Benz Style realizes its avant-garde designs in close collaboration with the Formitalia Luxury Group, one of the leading Italian manufacturers of designer furniture. An inspirational partnership built on the mutual passion for absolute quality and leading design. The collection will consist of a sofa, a chaise lounge, a dining room table, a sideboard, assorted chairs, a home theater system stand, a chest of drawers and a bed. Each piece promises to offer “dynamic yet timelessly elegant design,” including wooden chair backrest shells inspired by the seat shells in Mercedes’ latest research vehicles. Even the sideboard, the most pedestrian of dining room furniture pieces, has a glass door with a surrounding bevel meant to resemble the air intake of a sports car. Ensuring that owners remember who’s behind the design, each piece will wear a subtle Mercedes-Benz Style logo.

We found that the series has an aerodynamic feel to it. The lines swoop  upward with grace and ease. The carbon fiber elements give the collection a space age, lighter than air, appearance. The assembly would fit perfectly in a modern space age environment. The chaise looked like it could take off and soar at any moment. Gibraltar was very impressed by the comfort factor as well. The seating provided great lumbar support, and the high end leather materials caressed the back in luxury and suppleness. The collection boast a  litheness and grace that are unequaled by other providers and creates a cocoon of  extravagance.

While Mercedes-Benz Style may be new to the furniture business, automakers are no strangers to branding luxury goods. Lamborghini, for example, has a line of carbon fiber luggage that bears its name, and companies ranging from Aston Martin through Infiniti have affiliations with luxury watches.

Gorden Wagener, head of design at Mercedes-Benz Style, said of the collection, “The various pieces of furniture reflect the progressive, dynamic design idiom of our current show cars and concept vehicles, offering an exclusive, emotional experience outside our vehicles as well.” If you want that emotional experience in your living room, minus the occasional grease or oil stain, the Mercedes-Benz Style furniture collection is expected to be available at high-end furniture stores, showrooms and interior design studios beginning this October at our Beverly Hills site.

The form is made of metal rods interconnected with leaving visible empty transparent space as he liked the idea of air flowing through the design.

gibraltar_2252_1259981571
The original wire chair version was created in 1950. Charles Eames instigated a court case in which he claimed copyright to the original diamond chair design concept. The court eventually forced Harry to change his design. He had no choice but to get back to the design drawing board and with focused inspiration, he created the 1952 version of the chair we recognize today as the Diamond Chair. It was an instant triumph, leaving no doubt to both Charles Eames and those who knew him, that the real design inspiration for the open form wire chair belonged to Bertoia. It is doubtful that he realized at the time that his Diamond Chair would become mid-century modern icon for over a half a century. To this day, it is still regarded as one of the top chair designs in the history of modern furniture.

BARCELONA CHAIR 10 BUYERS TIPS 800-416-3635

Barcelona Chair is the finest sculptural element you can add to your home or business. This iconic piece is also called an Exposition chair by providers as Knoll owns the trademark name. You can purchase the official version of this historic piece from Knoll for $5,068.00 – $6,818.00. Or you can consider a non-branded version from Gibraltar Furniture for only $995.00

Mies Van der Rohe

Mies Van der Rohe

The nobility of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Lilly Reich’s famous Barcelona chair carries its cultural reverence to any environment in which it is placed. In the world of interior design, the Barcelona Chair epitomizes functional modern art. In the world of architecture, the Barcelona Chair is a masterpiece made by the master of the modern architectural movement. The form and function of the design elements in the Barcelona Chair require quality material and craftsmanship to convey the genuine spirit, nobility, and cultural significance of this elite furnishing. Shoddy workmanship nullifies the Barcelona’s intellectual and cultural impact, and speaks poorly to its surroundings. Only the finest replicas that exude the purism of the Barcelona chair should be displayed.

When buying your Barcelona Chair, it is imperative that the following ten design and material elements of the Barcelona Chair are carefully examined before purchasing:

1) The smooth stainless steel frame should be flawless. Mies intentionally redesigned his 1929 design in 1950 with the advent of stainless steel to use one smooth piece of stainless steel. This is critical to maintain the integrity of the Barcelona Chair’s modular design. There should be no braces at the welding joints and no seams.

2) The stainless steel is recommended to be “austenitic chromium-nickel alloys” of series 301, 302, 303, 304, 309, 316, or 321 for Barcelona Chairs. 304 and 316 are the most common grades. For Barcelona Chairs, the 400, 500, and 600 series of stainless steel are not true to the original, partially due to the “over-durability,” however higher grades of steel are often used in replicas. The stainless steel from the 200 Series of “austenitic chromium-nickel-manganese alloys” is ideal for chroming and technical specifications of the Barcelona Chair, but it is not ideal in high humidities. The Barcelona Chair may also come in Chrome, but the stainless steel has a higher resistency to corrosion.

Expostion Chair

Mies Exposition Chair

3) The polish of the stainless steel is one of the distinctive elements of the Barcelona chair. The stainless steel finish should only by No. 7, a reflective finish, or No. 8, a mirror finish.

4) The upholstery should be cowhide, a high quality Italian leather is a good choice. The Knoll patented version of the Barcelona Chair uses an untreated top grain bovine leather, however the porousness gives it the unfortunate ability to stain easily. (More precisely, Knoll’s patented Barcelona Chair uses “1.1 mm thick, grain corrected Spinneybeck Volo leather.”) Full grain leather will age well, and top grain is the most durable on the market today. Your choice should be based on quality and the environment in which the chair is used. The untreated full grain leather may not be a practical choice in a business lobby or a home where there is much entertaining.

5) The foam density may vary per country, but should be between 30 and 36 kgs per cubic meter for the Barcelona feel. Of course, personal comfort is the most important consideration. Ideally, this should be resilient urethane foam with a Dacron polyester fiberfill. Attention should be paid to fire safety certification requirements for your area.

6) There should be 17 straps of bovine leather, approximately 7oz to 8oz in weight, dyed the same color as the upholstery. The straps should be secured to the steel frame with 34 screws, which can be aluminum or stainless steel. (The patented Knoll version has used both in the past.) The screws (and rivets if used) should be out of view. (Being able to see the screws and rivets is a poor replica.)

7) The Barcelona Chair has forty tufted panels. Hand-tufted is preferred.

GIBRALTAR

8) The leather-covered buttons should be hollow metal, with a top and bottom.

9) Rope should be used for piping, but hemp and cotton are acceptable. Plastic piping does not bespeak high quality.

10) The cushions should not be oversized or overlapping the frame. After all, Mies is the father of the cliché “less is more.” The cushion should meld seamlessly with the curve of the frame. A true Barcelona Style Chair will not have seams on the outside corners.

Expostion Chair

Mies Van der Rhoe design

On the  Gibraltar Furniture edition each square of leather is hand selected, piped, tufted and individually sewn by expert leather craftsmen. The cushion is suspended upon a network of leather saddle straps fixed to a solid oak frame. Polished stainless steel legs add to the timeless modern design. A bolster pillow stretches across the width of the daybed and is secured in place by straps. Truly, a wonderful place to rest and relax.

GIBRALTAR FURNITURE VS. INFERIOR REPRODUCTIONS

Gibraltar Furniture vs Inferior Reproductions

LC1 CASSINA CHAIR VS REPRODUCTIONS

My mother raised me to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.  Consequently, I am about to bare the naked truth re the LC1 Cassina branded chair vs. the reproduction that Gibraltar furniture offers for $495. We often get asked how our LC1 classic chair compares to the original design by iconic furniture provider Cassina. For pure museum quality you can do no better than selecting the Italian manufacture.

However, many buyers would prefer getting a reproduction and saving thousands of dollars on the same purchase. Therefore we offer this same piece, in the same style, dimensions, and construction techniques which would cost $1,955.00 – $2,025.00 via Cassina. What are the benefits of selecting from Cassina?

Each piece of furniture in the “Cassina I Maestri” Collection is indelibly marked with:

• The signature of the Author, whose copyright belongs to his heirs, the use of which has been granted exclusively to Cassina and which in the form of a trade mark, certifies the authenticity of the furniture;

• The “Cassina I Maestri” logotype, which incorporates the Author’s emblem as used by him as identification on his drawings;

• The production number which serves to place the item in the chronology  of production, and tallys with the “Identity Card” (which bears the same number).  This shows that a final quality check has been carried out, and allows the Heirs’ control.

What does all of this really mean? If you are looking for a numbered editionLC1 chair Cassina is the only way to go. However be aware that you will not be receiving a limited edition product. Instead, your Cassina chair will be just be a  sequential serial number product with a  stamped number on the frame. Therefore, this creates no intrinsic value as you will never be able to get the same money back for your purchase for modern used furniture.

Established in 1927, Cassina has been designing the future for over eighty years. During the 50’s the company, founded in Meda (Milan) by Cesare and Umberto Cassina, launched industrial design in Italy. In the rich and complex turmoil of that era, it was pioneering in the way it encouraged architects and designers to envision fresh designs and most of all translate their inspirations into reality.

Taking a completely new approach, which saw a shift from hand craftsmanship to serial production, the company began to work side by side with designers. Since then, Cassina has shown a striking inclination for research and the ability to spark mulch-participant dialogues between the most talented designers of both the 20th and 21st centuries, including architects and designers with quite diverse sensibilities, styles and creative spirits. The result: a mesh of stimulating ideas, from which Cassina always draws the best. This transversal culture of absolute quality defines the uniqueness of each Cassina piece.

The Gibraltar release is also a extremely high end architectural art piece. It is manufactured to the exact original specification using  imported Italian aniline leather.

Shown in ponyhide, the LC1 Chair this basculant chair from Gibraltar Furniture, was originally designed in 1929 by the highly influential architect, city planner, painter and designer Charles Le Corbusier

In 1922, French architect Le Corbusier began working in the new rue de Sèvres, Paris, atelier with his cousin Pierre Jeanneret with whom he shared research plans and design inspiration in a profound and life-long professional relationship. In October 1927, the duo agreed to draw on the contribution of a young architect who had already begun to establish a reputation on the architectural scene of the time: Charlotte Perriand. Their collaboration lasted through to 1937 and was extremely productive, particularly in the furniture design arena. The partnership was highly significant, both in terms of the cultural weight of their accolades and their professional successes. It was together with Charlotte Perriand that the team tackled the innovative project for “l’équipement d’intérieur de l’habitation”. The resulting designs were of great intellectual value and considerable commercial success.

When you purchase from Cassina you are also paying full price for Cassina’s license of the design from the Le Corbusier estate. This exclusive once enabled Cassina to be the only official provider. But you can also purchase an exact copy from Gibraltar without having to pay a kings ransom.  Therefore we recommend Cassina again if you have deep enough pockets to pay the piper. Or you can go with Gibraltar if you want an exact  LC1 clone without any numbers or signatures. It is the same piece without the branding!

Charles-Édouard Jeanneret, who chose to be known as Le Corbusier, was a Swiss-born French architect, designer, urbanist, writer and painter, famous for being one of the architects of what now is called Modern architecture or the International style. He was born in Switzerland and became a French citizen in 1930. His career spanned five decades, with his buildings constructed throughout central Europe, India, Russia, and one each in North and South America.

He was a pioneer in studies of modern high design and was dedicated to providing better living conditions for the residents of crowded cities.  His striking innovations have influenced every generation of architects that followed him.

The LC2 features a 2 pc cushion system

Charles-Edouard Jeanneret, widely known as Le Corbusier (October 6, 1887 – August 27, 1965), was a French Swiss born architect, famous for his contributions to what is now called modernism, or the International Style, along with Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, Walter Gropius, and Theo van Doesburg.. He was a pioneer in theoretical studies of modern design and was dedicated to providing better living conditions for the residents of crowded cities. Le Corbusier began experimenting with furniture design in 1928 after inviting the architect Charlotte Perriand to join his studio. His cousin Pierre Jeanneret also collaborated on many of the designs. Before the arrival of Perriand, Le Corbusier relied on ready-made furniture to furnish his projects, such as the simple pieces manufactured by Thonet.

The Le Corbusier group referred to their LC2 and LC3 collections (1928) as “cushion baskets,” which they designed as a modernist response to the traditional club chair. These pieces reverse the standard structures of sofas and chairs by having frames that are externalized. With thick, resilient pillows resting within the steel frames, the idea was to offer all the comfort of a padded surface while applying the elegant minimalism and industrial rationale of the International Style.

LC 2 retails for $5950 from Cassina. Our price is $1295 for this reproduction.

SLING CHAIR

Le Corbusier regarded traditional furnishings, with their structures hidden beneath clouds of wading and huge hides, as relics of the past. Partnering with Charlotte Perriand and his cousin Pierre Jeanneret, Le Corbusier stripped away all excess to create the sleek, fundamental LC1 Chair (1928). One of the signature icons of modern design, the back of the chair is attached to the frame by a rod that allows the angle of tilt to change. As the user shifts from one sitting position to the next, the chair back moves with them for continuous support. Pairing the purity of simple tubular steel with the sensual warmth of natural hide, this piece of “equipment de l’habitation” has a sleek look and an air of functional elegance.

This model is made of European leather and produced abroad. Often discussed as a “sitting machine” and one of the signature classics of modern design, the Le Corbusier Basculant Armchair (1929) was an integral part Le Corbusier’s full burgeoning of the International Style. Introduced at the Salon d’Automne, the Le Corbusier Basculant Armchair’s emphasis lay in the juxtaposition of new construction techniques, mechanical versatility and precious materials. The beauty and grace of the chromed-steel frame lies in eight simple tubular pieces that are seamlessly welded together and given life by two unexpected arcs connecting the seat to the posterior frame. The visual effect is that of simultaneous weightlessness and solidity. The overall comfort of the chair is exceptional, with a reclining seat and mobile back for constant support. A natural black leather seat and back with black leather sling arms lend warmth and stylish neutrality to an artfully constructed design of classic luxury. The 100% Italian leather is made in Italy.
