FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT JOINS GIBRALTAR FURNITURE

 

Frank Lloyd Wright (born Frank Lincoln Wright, June 8, 1867 – April 9, 1959) was an American architect, interior designer, writer, and educator, who designed more than 1,000 structures, 532 of which were completed. Wright believed in designing structures that were in harmony with humanity and its environment, a philosophy he called organic architecture.  Wright was a leader of the Prairie School movement of architecture and developed the concept of the Usonian home, his unique vision for urban planning in the United States. His creative period spanned more than 70 years.

His work includes original and innovative examples of many building types, including offices, churches, schools, skyscrapers, hotels, and museums. Wright also designed many of the interior elements of his buildings, such as the furniture and stained glass.  One of the most inspirational, and forgotten chapters in Wright’s history are his iconic architectural designs for planters and vases.

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.
