The proposals of GANDIABLASCO, GAN and DIABLA are defined by reinvention and innovation in materials

GANDIABLASCO once again imbues its proposals for IMM Cologne with Mediterranean light, conjugating concepts and materials to create new sensations.

Teak wood and aluminium sheeting expand the possibilities of the DNA TEAK line, designed by José Gandía-Blasco, providing effects of light and shadow inspired by Mediterranean shutters.

Meanwhile, its Solanas collection incorporates surfaces produced from Dekton® by Cosentino. Resulting from the creativity of the designer Daniel Germani, the collection brings together aesthetic sensitivity with the technical qualities of this innovative material, highly resistant to extreme climatic conditions and manufactured using particle sintering technology.

This innovative proposal is accompanied, in turn, by the everlasting honesty of TIMELESS, a design by José A. Gandía-Blasco Canales and Borja García that explores the rationalist architecture of the 20th century to generate shapes that are discrete and, at the same time, robust.

Gan: From cross stitch to the ever-beautiful elegance of Patricia Urquiola

That inspirational gaze towards times-gone-by opens new horizons in the CANEVAS GEO collection by Charlotte Lancelot for GAN, which uses cross stitch techniques produced with threads of coloured wool on a perforated felt base to generate nuances of colour and effects of superimposition. A combination that is complemented by matching cushions.

That same tradition is projected towards the future in outdoor textiles, specifically in the HIDRAULIC rug, which recreates 20th century hydraulic paving using a hand-knotting technique. Woollen rugs with plant or flower motifs that look striking on plain floors.

LAN, the new collection by Neri&Hu, shows respect for Asian tradition – in China, indigo blue was the colour of household textiles – with a revolutionary design that frees the sofa from volume and provides lightness. A perfect combination for both the home and contract spaces that has been recognised with the NYCxDesign award in the Contract: Seating category. As well as redefining uses, the line reconfigures the idea of the rug and sofa, combining them to create something completely new.

And MIRAGE is just that, something new. The latest collection of rugs by GAN is signed by the designer Patricia Urquiola. Hand-crafted from New Zealand wool, these pieces attract attention thanks to their irregular and geometric shape and they have their own personality, half way between a rug and a work of art. As such, they are designed to be laid on the floor or hung on the wall.

The youth and freshness of Diabla in Germany

Unexpected silhouettes and concepts define the proposals of DIABLA. A stall that takes the shape and the name of DONUT, with a charming and ingenious design by the Japanese designer Mikiya Kobayashi, is accompanied by the portable lamp, PLISY, designed by Alejandra Gandía Blasco, with pleats made from an unusual material, polythene, and a cord handle in the style of a handbag to give it a chic and fun touch. Rechargeable by USB cable in seven hours, it provides light for another ten hours.

And if the Valentina line provides its uninhibited and elegant character to outdoor spaces, favouring improvisation with a seat formed by barely more than two cushions, the TOUFFU kennel, designed by Violeta Alcaide Weishaupt and Manel Jiménez Ibáñez, creates an original environment for the furry, four-legged members of the family. All the pieces fit together thanks to an innovative system of slots, with no need for screws, locking together by pressure in a manner inherent to traditional Japanese carpentry. Tradition and innovation rowing in the same direction.
