Salone del Mobile 2017: Fendi Casa presents Six Shades Of Palmer Sofa – On the occasion of the Salone Internazionale del Mobile, Fendi Casa presents a new exclusive Made-To-Order version of the Palmer sofa designed by Toan Nguyen, named Six Shades of Palmer. A creative blend of graphic lines and rigorous shapes enhanced by an innovative use of colors, that contributes to enhance the concept of Italian furniture and Italian design.
Six Shades of Palmer stands out for its surprising dégradé effect that gives it a unique personality. Six nuances ranging from an intense passion red to a delicate powder pink. A sofa with a strong charisma, embodying the perfect synthesis of the FENDI woman’s Dualism. A creative proposal that reinterprets the graphics dear to the Maison, through macro-lines on 3D textures and by experimenting with a chromatic palette on color-contrast cushions, adding a dynamic touch to the sofa structure.
In line with the avant-garde mood of the Fendi Casa Contemporary Collection, in which design and fashion blend in a harmonious play, Six Shades of Palmer features a modular structure, shaping a generous angular seat. A sofa designed to elegantly furnish the living area of a contemporary yet sophisticated residence, surrounded by an intimate and warm atmosphere.
The new Six Shades of Palmer sofa will be exhibited in the new Fendi Casa flagship store in Via Montenapoleone and it will be available exclusively as a Made-To-Order piece.
