2017 marked the tenth anniversary of Estetico Quotidiano, Seletti’s first international success which boosted the brand’s worldwide recognition. Maison&Objet was the perfect opportunity to celebrate this important milestone while at the same time adding three new products to the collection.
Exploring the theme of memory and reinterpreting styles of the past, Seletti presents the new Heritage Collection, which combines wood and velvet, transforming a traditional product into an eclectic décor. Sagra is a new addition to lights, which evokes images of the decorative flags of village fetes. The Street Life lamp is another new addition, inspired by traffic cones. Finally, Seletti wears TOILETPAPER collection, which is enhanced thanks to the first hanging lamps made in collaboration with Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari.
HERITAGE COLLECTION – design: Sebastiano Tosi
Simple and timeless lines combined with precious velvet create a new type of seat that draws from an ancient aesthetic while remaining relevant and contemporary. Sebastiano Tosi designs for Seletti Heritage Collection a line composed of folding lounge chair, armchair and chair with beech wood frame, combined with made in Italy velvet flaps making up the seat and back.
Heritage Collection is a clear reference to the cabinet-making tradition and Italian textiles, a tribute to furniture of the past that still have their own place in contemporary interiors thanks to research into décor and materials.
Seletti also presents a version with Polyester fabric, perfect for the outdoors because of its weather resistant properties.
In addition to the seating there are small tables available in two sizes, altogether creating a precious collection.
SAGRA – design: Gio Tirotto
The theme of memory brings a playful reinterpretation of the village festival lights. Sagra is the evocative name chosen by Gio Tirotto for this series of suspended lights that reproduce the idea of those classic decorations that adorn Italian squares in the summer evenings.
Each of the 16 bulbs is combined with a small triangular flag available in four colors – blue, yellow, red and green – to ironically decorate both the interior and exterior of your home.
STREET LIFE – Design AMeBE
Street Life is the typical road cone, the signal of a work in progress that is often found on the roadways. Reinterpreted by the AMeBE duo, it becomes a table lamp. Made of porcelain decorated with gold decorations, it is equipped with a dimmer switch to adjust light intensity and set the mood.
In the words of AMeBE “Street Life is not just a lamp, but a metaphor for life, a night signal that invites you to break routine and to change direction. It a tribute to the nomadic and street life”.
SELETTI WEARS TOILETPAPER – Hanging lamps
The line created in collaboration with TOILETPAPER, the editorial project by Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari, is the emblem of how art and design can penetrate, creating something totally new and over the top. The collection developed with TOILETPAPER aims to create a new “pop design”, a series of objects which evoke styles and materials of a past revolutionized by unconventional images.
The new hanging lamps are simple in form yet disruptive in their meaning; available in two sizes and 12 different graphics – Lipstick, Fingers, Snakes, Legs, Cat, Microphones, Teeth, Flowers with Holes, Spaghetti, Fish, Sausages, Pop Corn – each lamp is a work of irreverent and crazy art that revolutionizes very idea of chandelier for the house.
