The introduction of the 2021 Collection will enter its third stage at the 2021 Salone del Mobile exhibition, this year known as Supersalone, with the official launch of the new modular version of the Gast sofa. Frag will participate in the event being staged in the Milan Rho Fiera pavilions by introducing new products included in the catalogue in recent months and revealing, for the first time, the modular version of the sofa conceived by the Guatemalan designer Luis Arrivillaga. The company is expanding its collection with a unique product that is notable for its expressive form and spatial articulation.
In the first stage of the introduction of the new 2021 Collection, the principal role is taken by the Quattro family, designed by the Italian-Japanese Mist-o studio, a coordinated range of poufs and accent tables whose leitmotif is represented by the curved metal tubing of the base, which dialogues in balanced contrast with the seat cushion and support surfaces. Quattro pouf features a generously padded multi-layer seat that invites relaxation. The design of the padded seat gives it the appearance of a decorative cushion suspended in thin air on a light and minimal supporting structure of curved metal tubing.
To complement and enhance the pouf’s personality, the two designers have also designed Quattro occasional table, a series of accent tables that feature the same tubular metal base as the pouf, supporting a simple and elegant top of marble
In the second stage, however, the leading role has been claimed by the Twin family of mirrors designed by Michele di Fonzo and brought to fruition in collaboration with Frag’s Research and Development department.
The Twin family contains two mirrors of different designs and sizes that employ simple circular, oval and rectangular geometric shapes to embellish and update a traditional look with a sophisticated touch. This mirror collection has a stylishly delicate brass frame that offers graceful support to the mirrors and recalls the elegance of the 1950s. The frame design leaves space between itself and the mirror glass, creating a look of light and airy refinement.
The 2021 Collection illustrates the evolution and continuation of Frag’s research into expanding and consolidating its coordinated range in order to offer its clients genuinely aesthetic ideas for creating an authentic living environment of contemporary refinement. The Friulian company has a hundred-year history of passion and dedication – a family story of leatherworking skills handed down through the generations – and from its earliest days has succeeded in building a furnishings catalogue that clearly demonstrates the authenticity and quality of Italian know-how.
