For the 50th edition of the Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan, from April 11 to 17, 2011, La Perla will be presenting the project NesT | NidO in collaboration with De Ponte Studio.
The Italian architect Silvio De Ponte has designed a project for the La Perla showroom that seeks to bring together the concepts of Intimacy, Interlacement and Sinuosity.
Nature influences home and interior design, ‘projected outside without defined borders’: the interior is formed to resemble winter gardens and outdoor spaces are given an influx of energy.
A blend of wood and natural materials, as opposed to more technologically advanced materials, wind around the space, creating ‘enveloping atmospheres, sensory nests designed as new urban cocoons’.
Intimacy is the space where creations of La Perla live. The Interlacement is that ‘solidarity between the lines’, the connection of wires which are the lace, tulle and other key materials of La Perla styles. The Sinuosity aims to reflect the new frontier of shapewear in intimate apparel.
In relation to the presence of Euroluce exhibition, La Perla will also be showcasing ‘Couture Lights’, light sculptures created by Silvio De Ponte with pieces of the new La Perla ShapeCouture collection. This is described by the brand as the ‘most innovative underwear collection of the season’ and has been created in collaboration with Invista, owner of the LYCRA fibre.
La Perla will be holding a cocktail event in the showroom on April 12 to launch the design week and project.
