A FLORENCE TALE

VIVI TOSCONOVA

 

Florence. The Renaissance city is a treasure trove of art with an astonishing contemporary vibe. Florence’s extraordinary artistic heritage is the testimony to its centuries of civilization. The best way to enjoy Florence is to stroll along the riverside avenues at sunset, to get lost among the city’s alleyways in the bohemian Oltrarno’s area or the narrow little streets of San Niccolò, where it feels like you have ended up in another time along its centuries-old walls.

 

With a design clearly inspired from the 60s, the Lena armchair has a new, fresh and exclusive look that embodies modernity with a touch of vintage revival. Close-up, an array of details has been added: classic curves on squared elements, metal legs and a very pretty armrest.

DESIGN ETHOS

Everything comes from heritage and timeless art of Italian craftsmanship. There is a deep belief that everything we do is to empower the art of living by remaining faithful to the principles of authenticity that live from generations of craftsmen; we do believe the most pleasing environments comes from the heritage of our territory, Tuscany and Florence.

 

We are constantly inspired by the beauty of it: the colors, sounds, scent and shapes are a never-ending inspiration to everything we do. We respect the idea that true design is good only when it is a vivid part of a culture and a territory, and not just trend and commerce. Our design ethos embodies creations of timeless style which will then be made distinctive in the uniqueness of each project.
