|ADAMANTIUM INTERNATIONAL PRESENTS-
FENDI CASA COLLECTION. THE LUXURY LIVING COLLECTION FOR YOUR LUXURY HOME.
BARCELONA - MIAMI - PARIS - MILAN - NEW YORK - MOSCU AND MORE.
Uniqueness and passion are the elements making up that extraordinary appeal developed by Modern, when it manages to promote the elements of the history from which it comes. Uniqueness, passion and excellence are also the elements from which Fendi Casa departs to return the aesthetics of home living to a concept of glamour-comfort, joining history to modernity.
Not only product, not only the result of design, tailoring, technology and research. Expression of a craftsmanship that integrates technological progress, Fendi Casa is a way of living which describes contemporary modernity, in that expression of avant-gardism that leads us to imagine the future and, at the same time, recover the elements of classicism. A sophisticated and self-conscious lifestyle, aware and proactive, made up of armchairs, sofas, chairs, beds, furnishing systems, which have in them a sense of timelessness precisely because they manage to interpret modernity with the due detachment conveyed by classicism.
Besides the Fendi Casa collection, the Milan Furniture Show will also be presenting Fendi Casa Contemporary: two events belonging to a single world built using the same research characteristics, in a tension that combines tradition and modernity, history and a quest for the modern.
Designed by the French architect-designer, Toan Nguyen, Fendi Casa Contemporary recovers tradition with a refined anti-nostalgia operation, and projects it towards contemporary research through a modernist interpretation of essential lines and opulent meanings, as can be seen from the Metropolitan armchair and Soho sofa, where the linearity of the steel structure combined with leather straps is softened by the large-volume leathers cushions of Metropolitan or fabric cushions of Soho. Or as in the case of the Serengeti Table and the Janus Light, two furnishing objects which transform the linearity into the very essence of the shape, adapting to the needs of the structure the Ebony Macassar and the Zebrano wood of Serengeti or the tubular glass and steel of the Janus suspension lamp. The Borromini and Trevi sofas, the Margutta table and the Cerva armchair are, instead, the new products of the Fendi Casa line, presented for the first time at this year’s Milan Furniture Show and which go to join the already well known Memoire and Freedom sofas, the Regent bed, the Villa Ada boiserie panel system and the characteristic armchairs Sabrina.
In search of a subtle luxury, not flaunted but evident and consistent with the tradition from which it originates, Fendi Casa Contemporary turns precious materials and technology into instruments for reading a new functionality which, in this guise, also becomes a new expression of design.
THE LINES AND PRODUCTS
The strength and minimal character of the metal frame are offset by the absolute softness of the cushions, which adapt with naturalness for extreme comfort. The sofa is made up of a gunmetal chromed steel plate supporting structure which, combined with the stretched leather, also acts as a support for the back and armrest cushions, giving the sofa itself a strong appearance. The details: the metal of the buckles speaks with the structure and the leather insert of the visible cushion stitching is the same as that of the leather of the supports, giving the collection a very elegant appearance. Metropolitan is presented here in quartz grey leather version.
Important dimensions for the Serengeti table, made of solid Zebrano or Ebony Macassar wood. Highly appealing are both the material and the total integration of the leg with the top, made with geometric-shape radial grains. Serengeti is also available with metal legs with gunmetal finish, and is presented here in Ebony Macassar version and in the leather upholstered version with metal legs.
The Nairobi armchair has a solid-wood structure stained dark brown and has been reinterpreted in traditional, harmonious and fluid cabinet-maker style without any interruptions in shape. It is presented here in leather and soft lava-colour leather.
The leather-upholstered structure envelops and wraps around the maxi cushions, which convey an immediate sense of comfort thanks to their roundness. The buckles, a reference to leather-working traditions, are an accent piece of the collection: aesthetic details that complete the product, giving it personality and, above all, linking elements of the modular system which thus permit achieving total freedom of composition. The Soho sofa is presented in two new variations, in leather and in fabric and ice coloured leather.
RHEA - JANUS LIGHTING
Two series of suspension lamps with a strong decorative impact. The design is obtained by means of a series of curved tubular crystal glasses, joined circularly by a steel structure with gunmetal finish. Two types of direct lighting – central or perimeter - combine to produce a refraction effect inside the dome structure.
THE NEW MODELS
For the first time at Milan, Fendi Casa presents:
The Borromini sofa encloses the deep seat, thanks to a wrap-around structure featuring two different heights, which can be combined to give a staggered effect accentuated by the contrasts between seat upholstery and structure. Here presented with quartz grey leather upholstery and velvet composition in the same colour and ice.
The Trevi sofa represents traditional craftsmanship applied to modern shapes. The armrest is impressive and square, highlighted by tableaux worked with intertwined strips, a finish that only highly-skilled craftsmen can achieve. A leather saddle braid runs along the frame, coordinated with the upholstery. The back cushions enhance the seat. Here presented in leather.
The Cerva armchair features essential and majestic seat lines which also extend onto the high back, made of curved wood upholstered in leather. The shapes combine perfectly with the seat padding. Here presented in the new armchair version, with crafted jacquard velvet upholstery and also in ivory sheepskin.
Armchair with soft and sinuous lines, completely upholstered in leather along all the structure profiles.
This is a rectangular table, with top in ebonized sycamore wood and typical Art Deco finish. It features steel inserts with satin bronze finish, producing a graphic design with repeated FF logo. The legs are made of steel with satin bronze finish.
Distinguished by a major rounded-profile structure, embracing the deep seat, the Memoire sofa has a back enhanced by ornamental cushions in every version: three seats, four seats or armchair version. Available with Villa Borghese or Piazza di Siena embroidery, or with new vertical-stripe embroidery. Here presented in smoke grey leather.
A sofa with a modern design. The armrest and the base are finished with a precious leather-covered frame. The seat can be adjusted as regards depth and back angle by means of a wireless handset. Featuring square cushions. Freedom is presented here in the colonial leather version with armrest with intertwined strips and Petit Damier finish.
The headboard of the Regent bed is made with a series of rectangular quilted sections covered in satin. The finish is achieved with staggered effect with intertwined strips by means of an artisan method, enhancing each single tableau of the headboard and increasing elegance. It is presented here in quartz grey satin with a cashmere bed cover and prized chinchilla yarn cashmere accessories.
Villa Ada is the classic boiserie panel system which enhances any interior. Featuring gloss lacquered neutral doors combined with elements such as the leather doors of the casket system storage units and an open-front compartment, this too covered in leather.
MATERIALS & WOODS
Strength, elegance and prized materials. Fendi Casa materials are forged and made one of a kind by means of expert workmanship, according to centuries-old craft traditions able to exalt shapes and design.
Liquid Bronze. Innovative finish using bronze granules applied to products not made of metal, obtained through long and complex application phases to achieve even better-performance material results.
Sycamore. Ebonized wood with the dark shades typical of Art Deco.
Zebrano. Solid wood with warm tones and irregular grains, of strong emotional impact on table tops and structures.
Carballo and Ebony Macassar. Dark-shaded woods with elegant semi-gloss and high-gloss finishes. Jointed with radial effect on cabinets, with characteristic door-design motif; particularly refined in the new book-matched jointing of the Ebony on the table tops.
Horn. Finely worked to enhance the handles and give the furnishings a new and sophisticated allure.
Marble and Onyx. The Gris Pulpis marble, with its grey nuances and delicate veins, and Emperador marble, with its warm tobacco colours. The onyx spherical lamps, objects and vases feature delicate transparencies.
The Leathers. Research is moving further and further in the direction of sensorial impact. Plain leathers, soft to the touch, impalpable as if they were fabric, are used in the earth, lava, black and colonial variations and in a new natural colour. Soft nabuk leathers, plain, and full and natural vein, in shades of quartz grey, chocolate, leather, panama, glacé, and smoke grey are all examples of top-quality tanning. And again, gloss and semi-gloss printed leathers re-present precious galuchat, alligator and crocodile effects in the colours ice, ebony and quartz grey.
The Fabrics. The typical fabrics used in Haute Couture, prized and technical. Fabrics with intertwined twist yarn and chevron motif. Soft wool fabrics with sartorial effect. Soft cotton velvets evoke the shine of silk, solid colour and chevron. Crunchy silks and velvets in yellow, blue and bronze. Ottomans and cannettés with mélange effect, micro textured fabrics with brilliant effect. Rod velvet jacquards made on Italian artisan looms. The motifs recall tradition, reinterpreted in graphic style in the new zebra design. The rod velvet is without doubt the most prized loom fabric, direct heir of the Renaissance textile history of the Republics of Genoa and Venice. It is made using natural fibres only on ancient looms with renovated mechanical parts and which produce just one metre of fabric every hour. Craftsmanship is still a predominant feature of these products, able to add value and achieve exclusive standards of quality, combining the modernity of design with the technical heritage of Italian manufacturing.
The Furs. Exaltation of mink and marmot with new natural colours and blue and orange inlay. Chinchilla yarns combined with precious cashmeres. Red, blue-frost and arctic fox, applied on plaids and cushions.
FINISHING & COLORS
Steel. Chromed gunmetal, shining on the structures of tables and small tables, and on the bases of upholstered units.
Chameleon. Iridescent lacquering, changes colour according to the light, creating different atmospheres in the same interior. Used for small armchairs, vases, lamps and small tables in the colours garnet red and bronze.
Lacquering. Glossy in the colour variations ice, quartz grey, taupe, porcellana. Matched with the upholstery colours of steel, silver grey, dark mocha, lava, colonial.
Petit Damier. Intertwined strips of cut leather.
Damier Tressage. Large strips of intertwined leather or fabric (satin, satin and velvet).
Petit Damier and Damier Tressage are both completely artisan processes, made up of hand cut and warped strips like a fabric on a loom. Used to enhance bed headboards and sofa structures.

Made by means of skilful craftsmanship, together with the faceting of chairs and Crystal vases in lacquered polyester. And again braiding, engravings, and Saddle stitching on cushions and armrests, using traditional leather-working methods. Belts and buckles in cuoietto leather and metal, for fastening structures and as decoration. Finally, embroidery, prints and stitching with the equestrian themes of Villa Borghese, Basse Pointe Horse, Ascot, Chester and soft croisée fringes in suede leather, intertwined on plaids.
