at Porro duriniquindicifrom 27 November
Once upon a time ...
The displays to liven up the duriniquindici showroom for the entire Christmas period are aimed at a "small generation" of lovers of design.
From 27 November to early January, on the upper floor of the Porro shop in the centre of Milan, the spotlight is on "Spindle Chairy Tale": a fairytale setting with an essential, metropolitan style, obtained by combining the most representative pieces in the Porro catalogue, in their most bizarre conformations and finishes, with the tiny version of the famous Spindle chair.
Strong and stackable, thanks to its harmonious chromed steel structure with a very small section, and to the extreme lightness of its design, enhanced by the "shells" of the seat and back made of curved plywood, Spindle is a contemporary icon, capable of perfectly synthesizing the modus operandi and aesthetics reduced to the minimum terms that are typical of Porro and of Piero Lissoni, the designer responsible for this piece.
Available in 10 bright colour schemes, from the stronger shades such as fire red and mars orange to the natural shades of musk green and powder blue, to the more ethereal versions in chalk white and anthracite grey, satisfying all tastes, the Spindles in scale 1:child are distributed over the space to create multiple situations: freely scattered around near to the Load It chalk white bookcases, Endless Plastic in the crenellated version and System NXT with offset shelves and orange steps, for the more thoughtful children, or arranged around the P.04 round table with cementite top and shortened legs, a large, chaotic common area to meet up and play together.
If the display once again demonstrates the creativity of Porro and the desire to experiment with new uses and meanings for the its furnishings, the entry into the collection of the mini Spindle further extends the proposals of the brand, capable of exploiting the various models by making them available in different scales, in response to those who experience the quality of their environment as an indispensable value, at every age.
