• A puristic bench inspired by Japanese culture

    Today I would like to introduce some more beautiful furniture: Torii – a bench produced by Viccarbe and designed by Ludovica and Roberto Palomba. It’s simplicity and pure beauty has kept me thrilled ever since seeing it during Salone del Mobile 2018 in Milan.

    The brand new Torii bench is defined by it’s multi functionality. It can be set to the same height as a chair, which means it can be used as a desk or other table and, of course, it can be placed in collaborative spaces. Colours, upholstery and electrics are available in several options. I’m smitten by the lovely colour combination which they presented at the fair (seen in the above picture.)

    The famous designer couple, Ludovica and Roberto Palomba, took their inspiration from traditional Japanese culture and designed Torii in reference to the arches normally found at the entrance to Shinto shrines and which embody the frontier between earthly and sacred matters.

    The furniture Viccarbe presented at Salone del Mobile all have one thing in common, carefully designed with the highest standards in partnership with the most prestigious international designers they are all suited to a pure, timeless and contemporary lifestyle.

    For me they were a definite highlight of the fair and new favorite bench.
