Milanese designer Alberto Biagetti‘s on trend 2012 collection for Post Design perfectly fulfills his Atelier’s motto of blending “fashion, art, design and architecture without distinction, creating a bridge between established forms of expression and new digital ones.” The tables, side tables and credenzas are ultra streamlined, combining traditional minimal forms and materials (spare cubes, glass, metal) with more contemporary choices, like pairings reflective surfaces with brass in pieces of furniture that look so luxe they’re more like semi-precious jewels, complete with display cases for your most precious things.
The same spindly, geometric base is echoed in the arm chairs – delightful miniature versions of the ombre sofas, the most striking of which sets off ho-hum beige with au courant neon yellow. If you don’t think you can rock day-glo furniture, the gray-to-navy version is still a progressive choice, albeit a more subdued one.
While the shapes are rigorously cubic, the seating is actually made with memory foam padding, so they’re extremely comfortable, too. Once again, Biagetti has designed a collection that is both luxurious and spare with unexpected colors and materials that add edge to longterm investment pieces.
