Designing Architectural Spaces

Giorgetti’s signature home is increasingly flexible and multitasking: the 2022 living and dining collections express the brand’s ability to become an interpreter of the transformation of the home into an increasingly fluid place, a theater of new lifestyles.

SoHo Sofa design Carlo Colombo for Giorgetti

SoHo Sofa, designed by Carlo Colombo, is distinguished by the purity and softness of its forms, its rigorous volumes and the contemporary nature of its lines.

A sofa of extraordinary comfort characterized by an essential, light, aerial line, suspended on aluminum feet, whose strength lies in the extreme attention to detail: the particularity drawn by the armrest, which also continues in the back of the backrest, giving life to a modern capitonné, the webbing that draws the profile of each element, or even the terminals of the visible feet made from the recovery of production waste of Pau solid iron.

Flexibility and customization are at the heart of the project: a true system that, thanks to the many available elements and a double depth of seating, offers endless design and compositional possibilities.

As a multitasking island, SoHo can be complemented with inlaid Anthology or ash wood side tables, or as a relaxed homeworking station. Individual elements can also be used freestanding.

“SoHo is a very modern product. – states Carlo Colombo – It is a light, airy sofa suspended on aluminum feet. SoHo is a transversal product that speaks to an extremely wide audience. I imagine it in a bourgeois Milanese or Parisian home or in a hypermodern home in Miami or Los Angeles.”

Shibusa design for Giorgetti by Mauro Lipparini

Mauro Lipparini debuts in the Giorgetti collection with his interpretation of the Shibusa storage unit, a multifaceted design, a distinguished and elegant companion that looks toward the future of living, recalling the ever-present reality of the home office, the ritual that accompanies the preparation of a cocktail, but also the intimacy of a bedroom.

Shibusa is inspired by gestures, movements, and harmonies, capturing the sophistication of graphic combinations of oriental ideograms. Microstructures, rich in meaning, that enclose within them real imaginative stories. It draws on their mystery with grace and evocative power. Defined as a small stage,rich in attention and details, Shibusa tells of personal passions,” says Mauro Lipparini.

Fullness and emptiness, light and shadow, transparent volumes to show and closed ones to protect, are the lexicon behind the project that creates a dialogue between the Far East and the West made of geometric echoes, confluences of gestures from the sober design and a refined construction that combines cabinetmaker’s wisdom and technical quality giving life to a timeless, elegant,contemporary container.

A piece of furniture rich in details that is the result of complex constructive research, especially in the creation of the side elements: from the definition of the radius of curvature of the aluminum profile that makes up the door, which is subsequently machined, bent, painted and covered in leather, to the curved glass doors of very reduced thickness inserted in the structure, to the study of tolerances to combine all the different materials.

Shibusa is available in three versions and, depending on the details and accessories, can decline into home office secretaire, bar cabinet or multifunctional display cabinet. All available versions feature the same central drawer and differ in the equipment of the lower and upper parts.

The home office version features a pull-out leather top that turns the sideboard into a writing desk, with shelves at the top and open compartments at the bottom.

In the living room, the sideboard has shelves and doors, with handles in a sophisticated cracklé pattern inspired by porcelain. For more intimate and reserved spaces, the sideboard, in its third variant, can have storage compartments at the bottom.

Shibusa’s scenographic attitudes are accomplished through light: the back, made of gray striped glass in the combination of materials typical of Giorgetti’s collections, features four vertical LED profiles to enhance the silhouettes of bottles or other precious objects stored inside. The side elements also feature LED light. The interior and shelves with rounded edges are made of ash, while the base is made of pewter-finish painted metal.

Ray and Gimlet design Roberto Lazzeroni

Joining the 2022 collection are the two small tables Ray and Gimlet, designed by Roberto Lazzeroni for Giorgetti. It is the same designer, but different shapes and material combinations that create two unique products.

With its organic shapes and sinuous lines, the round Ray coffee table designs spaces with a pleasant softness.

Distinct materials meet in this design in a play of proportions and symmetries that creates an unexpected optical effect. With an aesthetic that harkens back to the design, but also to the advertising and the Caroselli films, of the 1970s, Ray features a central storage structure, completely upholstered in leather, that supports a cantilevered circular top composed of a solid ash wood edge and painted metal joints that, like rays, divide the top into four segments that can be customized in your choice of ash, pewter-colored back-painted glass or leather.

Attention to detail, great craftsmanship of the most diverse materials and functionality combine in this product at the service of living. The central element expands the functionality of the coffee table, becoming ideal for holding glassware, bottles, books, magazines as well as various personal items.

” Ray is a UFO landed in the living room – an object that serves and contains. A sculpture that defies the laws of physics, with a top too big for a base too small. A sort of magic circle, a furniture object that finds its own centrality and importance in the domestic space,” says Roberto Lazzeroni.

The Gimlet coffee table was created to accompany the Vesper seating system, to be stacked on top of the sofa and act as a practical support surface to place a glass, a book, an object. Functional, very versatile, with fluid and contemporary lines, it can be naturally inserted indifferent environments with other pieces of furniture.

Its metal frame with a simple line is combined with an upper top, available in several variations such as ash leather or glass, with a solid ash edge in different finishes.  

Montgomery design Dainelli Studio for Giorgetti

For 2022, Giorgetti consolidates its collaboration with Dainelli Studio by presenting the Montgomery chair, available in armchair and small armchair variants. The design takes inspiration from classic forms while experimenting with a more aggressive, dynamic, contemporary trait.

Ash in its various colors is the protagonist: the forms are shaped in the raw material so that they are fluid, light and soft at the ends. The structure is characterized by curves and complex joints, with extreme attention to seating comfort and strength for long-lasting uses, in private and public spaces.

A product with apparent simplicity but concealing a profound constructive complexity, the result of the cabinet-making expertise that the company has been able to cultivate and develop over its 124-year history.

A precious detail on the rear of the back cushion hooks into the ash frame of the seat – from which the product takes its name – to ensure maximum stability, while the armrests are upholstered in soft leather in the central part.

Montgomery is a design born from a detail. The toggle, the lacing that characterizes the Montgomery chairs of the 1980s-90s, was the cornerstone and focus of the design. The lines of the chair and armchair, which recall the 1970s collections of some historic designers, are a frame that revolves around this detail. We all tend to make beautiful chairs when seen from the front, but in reality in the home you always see the chair from the back because it is leaning against the table. We wanted to give importance, character, personality to the chair even when it is not being used and is simply being looked at,” says Dainelli Studio.

Griffe design Giancarlo Bosio & Giorgetti R&D

Griffe introduces in the 2022 collection a sign with a strong personality: the small tables designed by Art Director Giancarlo Bosio with Giorgetti R&D are precious elements, jeweled objects that take shape in the dialogue between refined materials.

The small tables are characterized by a refined play of joints, overlaps, and glossy and matte finishes. The protagonist of the project is asymmetry: the base in Canaletto walnut finish takes the shape of an irregular “x” with fluid lines, light and elusive at the ends, accentuated by the wood grain placed horizontally.

The four ends of the legs are enriched by a detail in solid pau ferro: four claws that touch the top, at the four legs, and support it as if it were a precious stone.

Consistent with his passion for juxtaposing materials, for this product Bosio chooses three different material combinations that create an unexpected optical effect. In fact, the top is available in ash wood, characterized by an inlay determined by the change in direction of the grain; in leather, with stitching that follows the course and intersection of the legs that support it; or, for one of the three dimensional variants, in marble.

Two new types of stone for Giorgetti embellish the design: tiger rosewood, a very rare and prized marble from our Orobic Alps, with a cloudy texture, and Labradorite Lemurian granite from Madagascar, with magnificent iridescent shades of blue and green, traditionally used in jewelry making.

“Griffe” is a small family of three small tables, with different cuts and heights, united by a refined play of joints and overlaps. Small tables jewel-objects worked with important details and materials-wood, leather, and marble-designed with absolute visual and constructive simplicity, in the most natural way for a craftsman to put two planks of wood together. The play of the joints creates sharp, obtuse angles that give the effect of an unusual and seemingly random installation,” explains Giancarlo Bosio.

G-Code Desk design Dante O. Benini and Luca Gonzo

With the 2022 collection, Giorgetti launches a new prestigious collaboration with Dante O. Benini and Luca Gonzo with which it presents G-Code Desk. The executive desk is the first element of an entire G-CODE collection, created by the two architects.

The project focuses on the well-being of the individual as a user by combining form and function, aesthetics and technology into a single symphony.

G-Code Desk was born from an architectural approach: “The concept started from a trip to the United States, where in the pochette they give you was a brush, the kind that closes, and I took a mental tour and imagined that it became the structure on which a plane rests. The idea was that of an architecture, with this brush becoming the supporting beam of a large plane,” explains Dante O. Benini.

“It is like a model of architecture: there is a double height, there are terraces, there is a roof that flies with overhangs, there are transparencies and volumes that open up. It has a visual strength, but at the same time elegant and sober, precisely because it has perspectives and lines, it has voids and it also has light,” adds Luca Gonzo.

The desk features a walnut frame and an interplay of solids and voids, thanks to the central part composed of 158 hand-painted metal rods in three different colors, pewter, bronze, and brushed champagne, which support the top and lighten and soften its design, as does the top with scarp edges.

Available in wood or marble, the sculptural top features a leather-covered underhand in the center accessorized with two buttonholes. Characterized by a distinctive conical section, they accompany the cable outlet and connect with the cable grommet connected with an inspectable area hidden in the center of the structure to enclose the wiring, which lights up when opened.

G-Code Desk is a design in which nothing is left to chance and is distinguished by its richness of detail. The handle of the drawers is an aluminum plate, hollowed out to a lock-like shape, painted and covered in leather. The drawer on the left has a leather top and compartment, a lower space that is lit and electrified with electrical and mains sockets to accommodate, for example, a small printer as well as books and binders. The top drawer on the right, however, is divided to hold small desk accessories.

A proposal of great elegance that focuses on functionality to meet all the needs of a comfortable and multitasking workstation. A timeless object designed for a large executive office as well as a prestigious residence with a large space dedicated to home working.

Flamingo and Annette design Giorgetti R&D

Giorgetti experiments beyond the boundaries of conventional thinking and combines design and play in a fun and spirited living and leisure experience, creating irresistible objects that intrigue and enchant.

With the 2022 collection, the brand uniquely and attractively translates a timeless object that brings incredible appeal to contemporary life: the game table.

Flamingo is a decidedly evocative design, an object of desire that recalls the atmosphere of casinos, the ritual of gambling, but also the bourgeois image of the world’s most charming capitals.

Flamingo is a gaming table with sculptural and harmonious forms, perfect for use in the domestic sphere in combination with other furnishing elements.

Featuring a leather-covered base in five color variants from light grey, almond, dark grey, to brass, and a smoked glass top with an ergonomic solid ash edge, with a wide radius designed to make it comfortable to rest your arms while playing.

Four drawers, one per game station, are intended to hold the essentials for playing: pawns, cards or chips. In addition, each drawer has a small tray for placing a glass of wine, a cocktail or small items so that the game table is left free.

The edges, slightly higher than the top, leave room for a double-sided gaming mat made of leather on one side and wool satin on the other. Matching the base of the game table, the mat is available in five color variations.

Designed to accompany the table, the Annette chair pays homage to the famous poker player Annette Obrestad. Elegant and ergonomic, thanks to its lightness and simplicity it becomes a true passe-partout, to live within other environments as well.

Its soft forms characterized by a full volume are studied in every detail to ensure maximum comfort: from the backrest that embraces the structure and with its curvature accompanies and supports the body, to the particular quilting of the cushion, an emblem of relaxation.

Numerous upholstery customization options dictate an ever-changing look. In fact, Annette is available fully upholstered in fabric or leather or with an outer back in leather and an inner back and seat in fabric or the same wool as the play mat. Annette is also available in the same upholstery as the table base. The stitching on the rear of the leather backrest creates a graphic mark that echoes the design of the table leg section.
