Alessio Bassan Designs for Capo D’Opera



One of favorites during the last Milan Design Week was the creation by designer, Alessio Bassan, for Capo D’Opera. Renowned for its valuable work and refined material, the Italian publisher offers this creation of structure made of 798 lines of Corian, the famous solid surface created by DuPont.

At the border of art and design, the “A beautiful day” graphic work reveals a neat, organized creation around 8 chromatic scales. The parts are available except in limited and numbered edition.

Also discovered from the same designer, is the new Scacco 3D texture, which offers a  striking 3D look when applied to the Quadro collection.



The “Buff” and “Cerco” by Karlsson and Churba

Like every year, the Milan Design Week is an opportunity for Hi-Macs to unveil new creations. Prominent at the show this year, are two collections by Karl Andersson & Swedish Söner.

The first collection is the “Buff”, a series of tables inspired of vintage design by Joel Karlsson. A refined design, with a careful combining of noble species like ash, oak, birch, and walnut.

The second collection is the “Cerco”, a shelf designed by Argentinian, Federico Churba. The Cerco offers a graphic game that is ambivalent and positioned in the same direction. The elements provide a linearity to the room for more serenity. In the opposite way, they reveal a more chaotic atmosphere.
