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.

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.

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.

Gibraltar Furniture Welcomes Philippe Starck

Sensual.  Clever.  Functional.  These are the elements that define the work of designer Philippe Starck.  In 1984, Starck joined forces with Gerard Mialet to form xO, a “joyful, fun, and provocative” line of chairs, stools, tables, and accessories, which are now available through Gibraltar Furniture.

Philippe Starck and L'Oreille Qui Voit, a collection of mirrors shaped like the human ear in reference to Dali's soft watches

Inspired by his father who worked as an aircraft designer, Starck spent his childhood under his father’s drawing boards, sawing, cutting, gluing, and sanding, dismantling bikes, motorcycles and other objects. After attending the Ecole Nissim de Camondo in Paris, he went on to create pieces for Paris night clubs, the Elysée Palace, and numerous hotel interiors all over the world. Today, Philippe Starck may be the most famous and prolific designer alive. His desire for transgression and challenge of aesthetic and cultural provocation leads him to transform our lamps, door handles, cutlery, kettles, vases, clocks, scooters, motorcycles, desks, beds, taps, toothbrushes, baths, toilets… in short, our whole life.

Bubu 1er: The most versatile of all stools that does not take itself seriously. A universal container, a laundry basket, an ice bucket, a small pedestal table, a tooth crown... it's up to you to invent the rest!

With his line xO, Starck seeks to surprise and melt contraries: to issue popular products designed by the greatest designers of the world, to use plastic to manufacture luxurious pieces of furniture, to be the one international design house in France to work hand-in-hand with Asia and the USA. Many xO items are pieces that Starck designed for specific locations including the Royalton stool, which was created for the New York hotel of the same name as well as the Peninsula chair, featured in the Felix restaurant at The Peninsula Hong Kong hotel.  xO also features original pieces designed by Karim Rashid, Patrick Jouin, Christian Ghion, and Eugeni Quitllet.  These new pieces, including the Bite Me chair and the Z Stool by Rashid, are clever, versatile, and distinctively xO.

Bite Me: Karim Rashid's first collaboration with xO. Equally perfect for homes and public use, Bite Me blend comfort and a light, practical design by making best use of polyethylene worked with the rotational mould technique.

Gibraltar Furniture features the xO line and is now offering free shipping.

Couture features the clean, rounded lines that define Philippe Starck. It stands as proof that the worlds of design and fashion are not too distant, and can be combined with success.

Dazzling new Designer Planters, Pots, and Garden Containers Unveiled at Recent International Design Show in Europe

Flower pots in bold colors, novel designs, and breath taking forms from Serralunga are the hallmarks of an innovative new series of unprecedented European designer planters, vases, and containers.

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 6, 2006 – Italian manufacturer www.serralunga.com has rolled out a series of stunning new flower products at the recent International Design Show held in Europe. Serralunga makes flowerpots: small pots, gigantic pots, and every size of pot in between.

Bold colors, novel designs, and breathtaking forms are the hallmarks of this innovative series of planters, pots, and containers. Highlighted artists include Karim Rashid, Ron Arad, Christophe Pillet, and Marc Sadler. The new line includes pieces entitled Kronik, The Vases, Loop, Flute, Lady Jane, Lady Mary, HolePot, Memory Pot, Island & Nello il matto.

The series is characterized by its playfulness, scale, and colorfulness. The units are perfectly suited for both indoor and outdoor applications and would be at home in any residential, gallery, or institutional application.

www.gibraltarfurniture.com, located in Beverly Hills, California, is the first and only source in the United States to offer this ground-breaking collection at wholesale prices. This store is the leading source for designers, architects, and landscapers for products in the United States. Consumers can contact Gibraltar at 800 416 3635 for more information

Serralunga, who have been producing stylish planters since 1825, is located in the Biella section of Italy. This group has a tradition of more than 180 years of container production.

Born before the industrial revolution, Serralunga recently changed material typology from traditional clay pots to futuristic models. Serralunga’s concept is to feature classical design lines and post-modern shapes. Today, Serralunga is the leader in the production of contemporary style flower pots, vases, and containers.

The pots are made from rotationally molded polyethylene, and are strong, lightweight and will tolerate subzero temperatures, having a much longer life than traditionally made pots. Serralunga recently commissioned some of the world’s leading designers to create new lines of vases and flower pots for both interior and exterior use. Designers have paid close attention to polymer evolution and have applied new plastic technology to current articles, but have kept their use and functionality unchanged.

Serralunga concentrates on creativity, aesthetics and functional details. Last but not least, Serralunga spotlights traditional Italian prose, beauty, and style in every piece. For more information, go to Serralunga.

These stunning planters look so good, you may decide that you’re going to forget about plants and use them as furniture accessories!

One interesting tidbit is that some of the designers, while sketching their pots, sketched them with specific plants in mind. While some pots might be appropriate for orchids, alocasias, and cannas, others are much better suited for agaves and cacti.

All of these pots, vases and containers come in an astounding array of finishes, including spectacular metallic and lacquer coats. Consumers can contact Gibraltar Furniture to purchase any of these products at discount prices by calling 800 416 3635.

Gibraltar Furniture also has a complete line of landscape architectural products from other domestic and international sources at discount prices. Trevi Outdoor, Modern Outdoor and Studio4LA are a few of the exclusive brands that this Beverly Hills company offers at factory-direct prices.

Customers can order custom fountains and one-of-a-kind planters, containers, and pots from this 50-year old business in modern, traditional, or post modern forms.

Gibraltar offers the entire line of products from Color & Life, Compar, David Edward, Davis Furniture, Fabulux, Firefarm, Girari, Gordon International, Grey, Havaseat Chairs, Innovation, IQMatics, Janke, Jet Age, Kenshoma, Litto Kids, Lunar Lounge, Malik, Ooba, Oeuf, Offi, OFM, Ogus Design, The Phillips Collection, Serralunga, Studio4LA, Touch Design/Lighting, Trevi Outdoor, the Vessel Architectural Pottery collection, Zuo Modern, and 100 Times Better, among others.
