A collection dedicated to young people, created by young design talents: the new TriBeCa Loft line by Mantellassi, presented at the Salone del Mobile 2017.
The furnishings were designed by Marco and Giulio Mantellassi, 27 years old, architects, who are the fifth generation of the homonym historic tuscan furnishing company.
Together with a team of peers from the University of Florence, the Mantellassi twins have created an innovative proposal, made of natural materials, craftsmanship and fine finishes. The collection, inspired by the aesthetic of the sixties and seventies, was born after a long period of research in Italy, the United States and Russia.
“Marco and Giulio realized that in the design it was missing a proper offer to the target of the twenty/thirty-year people: fresh, colorful and versatile, but at the same time of high quality,” explains Roberta Mantellassi, who guide the company with her husband Nicola Remo.
TriBeCa Loft includes furniture made of precious wood, sofas and armchairs in natural wools and aged leathers, Retro style lamps in brass and aluminum. Some objects are inspired by pieces coming from the company archive, revisited in a contemporary key.
To present the collection, Marco and Giulio Mantellassi have transformed the stand of the Salone del Mobile into a loft consisting of wood and concrete, with a little bit hipster atmosphere – the dream home of any “Millennials”.
