The appointment with Il Salone del Mobile returns from April 4th to 9th and Elledue is ready to impress once again.
Aqvila and Ulysse collections are still protagonists of this edition: presented for the first time in 2016, they are further developed and partly revisited. Ulysse, designed by the creative duo Alex&Charles, crosses the boundaries of the sleeping area with an embroidered velvet bed and a dressing table with a special mother-of-pearl effect finish. The details are lightened, the mood is minimal but at the same time absolutely luxurious, thanks to the use of even more valuable materials. The collection will be presented in a theatrical, severe and majestic set. Marble, brass, bronze and an innovative veneered boiseries, with shapes drawn by light cuts, will define a space of elegance and uniqueness. To top it all is the Ulysse Lighting line, born from the collaboration between Elledue and Albodesign: this year it is enriched with new models, including a metal chandelier with a particular ring structure. Even Aqvila, the collection designed by Lebanese architect Walid Fleihan, will be reinterpreted. The new decorative approach contemplates, in this case, more contemporary finishes and incredibly elegant materials, able to perfectly enhance the sinuous lines that characterize each piece. Aqvila will be presented in a private lounge, with marble walls and floors and a awesome lacquered linear boiseries. Elledue will also introduce a new series of rugs, which will match the proposals of Aqvila and Ulysse collections. Made with wool and silk and hand tufted according to traditional techniques, they will give a further touch of elegance to the rooms. But that’s not all: the Salone 2017 marks the return of Quattrocento collection, designed by Russian architect Andrey Vega and presented by Elledue for the first time in 2013. This time, Vega is enrolled to design a new bedroom. The result is a fascinating space, with a Deco taste where the protagonist is a bed covered in soft suede, with the iconic Quattrocento geometric grid in brushed brass to characterize its headboard. The perfect thread that ably connects the different sets and the colour choices that characterize the three collections is the result of the new collaboration between Elledue and the stylist and architect Bruno Tarsia.
