Salone Internazionale del Mobile is proving to be a celebration of colour this year!
Sancal's "FLASH!" collection is really no exception, how could it be with the likes of Karim Rashid onboard!? That's right, the pilot of the fluorescent pink pen has turned his hand to soft furnishings for Spain's Sancal.
The result is "Float": a collection of group seating options with a selection of high and low back rests. Almost bench-like, the upholstered Float family revels in its eccentricities with coat hooks, headrests, tables and cushioning all integrated into the seats... but almost mischievously misplaced.
Luis Eslava Studio have also taken the "Flash!" brief by both horns and in full-colour created a collection suitably titled: "Party".
A system of sofas and armchairs, the comfort in the deep upholstered seats is at once inviting and the proportions give the pieces a whimsical appeal.
In both collections the 'chaos' of the various configurations is pulled back into line with the consistency in the curved and 'cartoony' detailing, with each series the timber elements play wonderfully alongside the contrasting upholstery and button details.
Also released were Rafa Garcia's Copla Sofa System and Juan Ibáñez' Nudo nesting tables, with images still to come.
