Delicate yet distinctive - contrasts come together in new collections

For Salone del Mobile.Milano 2024, Bernhardt&Vella presented its new collections and designs. The new projects continue collaborations with some of the leading figures in the furniture industry such as Arflex, Calligaris, and Rugiano, highlighting the stylistic signature of the two designers, delicate yet strongly distinctive, where sobriety and eclecticism achieve a perfect balance through the interplay of contrasts between shapes, details, and materials.

The Milan setup unfolded through the creation of a grid of rooms, transforming the space into an exhibition path that was at times labyrinthine. Strategically positioned openings established communication between the environments, guiding the visitor through a captivating journey. The inspiration stemmed from a careful observation of the world of interiors: the concept of comfort translated into the tactility of materials, enveloping the interiors in a contrast of colours and textures.

For Arflex, Bernhardt&Vella's Marea coffee table collection blends Italian design with Japanese aesthetics. The textured glass top recalls the organic forms of Japanese aesthetics, while the anodized aluminium legs that form the structure follow a rational design characterized by clean and essential lines reminiscent of the great masters of Italian design.

The new Ribbon coffee table designed by Bernhardt&Vella for Calligaris emerges from the search for fluid forms and materials with strong personalities, such as painted metal and cast glass.

Alongside the Ribbon coffee table, Bernhardt&Vella has presented another novelty designed for Calligaris: the Jill bed. Inspired by the iconic and personal style of Pierre Paulin, Jill is shaped on the idea that its beauty can harmoniously merge with the human form and the surrounding aesthetic space, distinguished by its enveloping and sinuous forms.

The novelties presented by Bernhardt&Vella also include a series of furniture collections and accessories designed for Rugiano. Designed for outdoor use but perfect for a living area as well, the Capri sofa and lounge chair evoke the aesthetics of the 1960s, with a structure composed of a bundle of painted aluminium tubes that form armrests and backrest without any joints, including generous cushions. The Elba coffee tables, on the other hand, draw their design inspiration from the soft and round shape of water droplets.

Bernhardt&Vella has also designed the Blanco table for Rugiano - sculptural and statuesque, merging functionality with artistic forms. Available with a round or rectangular top with rounded edges, it offers a unique visual experience: the top and protruding bases transform and change depending on the viewpoint, providing a new interpretation of the furniture from every angle.

The new Beverly bedside tables designed for Rugiano feature an elegant single curved and shaped metal leg, giving them a more slender, almost suspended appearance.
