In solid natural wood or with light aluminum structures, eco-friendly and ergonomic or featuring sculptural shapes, in a blend of textures and a different choice of colour combinations, possibilities are endless to maximise  comfort and provide contemporary ambiences with a strong identity. Take a tour of the chicest seating on the Spanish side….

ANDREU WORLD – Hall  7 Stand G16 / G20

The firm, a worldwide key player in the seating market, will exhibit in Milan its latest seating collections: the FLEXA chair and the REVERSE table, by Piergiorgio Cazzaniga, and the NEW RONDA chair by Lievore Altherr Molina.

BELTÀ [FRAJUMAR] – Hall 6 Stand F36

Specialized in manufacturing smart and ergonomic upholstered furniture, FRAJUMAR and its brand BELTÀ have developed a whole 2013 range of new seating collections in collaboration with Spanish designer Dsignio. Among others, at I SALONI the brand will unveil the CAMP sofa, the RUND occasional tables and the GIOIA armchair.

Upholstered in a fabric resistant to an intense use, the CAMP sofa is a complex blend of classic concepts and sleek contemporary lines. In combination with the stylish RUND tables it configures restful spots full of fashionable urban vibes.

RUND is a set of three side tables that can be used alone or in group, creating various compositions thanks to its different sizes, heights and finishes: in natural wood, wenge, walnut, cherry or lacquered in different colours.

The GOIA line of armchairs and sofas is the new proposal of BELTÀ for people who look for originality and comfort. The curved line and the organic forms of the interiors contrast with the accuracy and straightness of the exterior lines; the exquisite detail of the folds is stressed by the buttons. A model that is for avant-garde spaces as for classics; versatile and unique.

CAPDELL – Hall 6 Stand F36

Capdell has started a new collaboration with the Swedish architecture and design studio Claesson Koivisto Rune that has led to the launch of the new CONCORD collection, on display for the first time at I Saloni. CONCORD is a new line of seating that represents the fusion of the Nordic sleek and natural designs with the Mediterranean warmth textures and vivid colours.
