FENDI has teamed up with Dimore Studio to create an interpretation of an ideal, contemporary Fendi apartment in Rome at Design Miami 2014.
“Roman Lounge” showcases a selection of bespoke pieces partly conceived in homage to the origami work of Akira Yoshizawa and the steel tubing designs of Ferdinando Innocenti.
It encompasses luminosity, tactile colors in leather and fur and saddlery-like aesthetics. Vertical volumes pay homage to Ferdinando Innocenti, while horizontal volumes reference Akira Yoshizawa’s origami designs.
A combination of neutral colors such as grays, pearls, and slates are blended with chalky pinks, lemons, and dark browns. Finishes are glossy or oxidized brass with splashes of opaque black paint.
Bespoke design pieces include the brand’s “Grand Square” contemporary table consisting of 7 frames in black painted iron frame and 1 in oxidized brass and its bookcase in iron pipe painted black, featuring oxidized brass feet and colorful shelves in yellow, brown, pink and gray.
The collection also comprises two different kinds of lighting, a horizontal one along the walls of the space and a vertical one from above, two chairs called “Conversation Pieces” and a daybed in shaved mink.
Design Miami runs through December 7.
