(jiří macek) Recently, the return of minimalism into the world of contemporary design has been increasingly evident. However, there seems to be too much hype surrounding it. Even though the weather continues to change more and more frequently, minimalism has never completely disappeared. Cappellini now presents its new reedition of a collection of lines composed into the shapes of chairs and a table designed by Italian designer A. G. Fronzoni in 1964.
The reedition primarily focuses on offering new colors and a return to minimalist philosophy that does not burden objects with stories and emotions, but creates a base for their development. “We should focus on the basic character of things, get rid of excess effects, and build the concept on a mathematical basis, elementary structures, and fundamental ideas, as well as avoid useless vanity and eccentricity,” said A. G. Fronzoni, a renowned graphic designer who regularly entered the world of objects. Many companies have not abandoned the peace that radiates from the clear lines of the collection, even though design, in general, is currently closer to decoration and concept. Face to face with their perfection, many concepts suddenly seem overly encrypted and useless. It is great when these two worlds permeate one another, which is the case of the Italian brand of Cappellini and its portfolio.
Cappellini is represented by Konspeti in the Czech Republic.
