January 12, 2015

We’re happy to share the news from Edra, a brand that we love for its design incredibly comfortable ergonomics sofas and armchairs, unique chairs, which can become real art objects in Your interior!
During the IMM Exhibition in Cologne Edra will present its products inside the premises of the prestigious Contemporary Fine Arts Galerie Karsten Greve, alongside the new chair Gilda B., designed by Jacopo Foggini and dedicated to friend Gilda Bojardi, director of INTERNI magazine. The exhibition area covers two different floor levels: on the upper floor the sofas and the best seller armchairs of the collection create a thematic path around the new chair. On the lower level Edra displays a knock-down" version of its products in order to showcase the quality, the craftsmanship and the hi-tech aspects of the constructions and the materials.
We’d like to mention a unique collaboration of the last fall of Edra with the legendary Paris Museum – the Muse d’Orsay. On September 4, in the Petit Salle of the Muse d’Orsay, Edra celebrated this prestigious collaboration between the company and the famous Parisian museum, the new chair will be presented with the artist Jacopo Foggini.

The idea that generated the seat Nel Blu Dipinta di Blu can be synthesized as a brushstroke of 4 colors on a incandescent tongue of polycarbonate. To tame this tongue gently, but without the possibility of error, is like playing an instrument in a sacred place in front of an audience of experts. Each chair is a unique piece, a free gesture hand made. Half way between the craftsmanship of a master glassmaker and an abstract pastry chef, where the material to be molded becomes a material of the future" (Jacopo Foggini).
The translucent shell of the chair is made with a new technique, invented for the occasion, along with the contamination of the color, giving it shape and character. The unique chair Nel Blu Dipinta di Blu is a tribute to the muse D’Orsay and the treasures it contains, as well as the public who annually visit this iconic modern art landmark in Paris. For Edra and for the artist Jacopo Foggini this important collaboration proves to be a prestigious occasion to meet the needs of the highest institutions in the world of art and design. A great honor. We are impressed by the exceptional, visually stunning items Edra, and You?
