Giardino Geometrico, an oasis of relax in Milan created by Lissoni Associati for Living Divani

The luxuriant beauty of nature, the evocative power of a place filled with history, the minimalist refinement of a project by Lissoni Associati, the rich texture of the Laminam surfaces and the luxurious comfort of outdoor furniture by Living Divani: all this is to be found in the “Giardino Geometrico” installation created in the Brera Botanical Garden as a joint project with the magazine Interni throughout the Milan Design Week. An open-air display where elegance is mixed with cultural references, botanical rarities and emotions, to surprise the visitor and surround him with a timeless and magical atmosphere. While along the paths of the botanical garden vertical surfaces similar to stone, to onyx and to marble are used to create a sculptural installation, a sort of contemporary maze, punctuated by pleasant rest areas, in the area of the actual garden outdoor furniture sets are contained inside a lightweight pavilion, a sort of light temporary architecture, visually very open, where the clean shapes of the Living Divani furniture blend with the enchantment of the natural surroundings. An evocative, abstract and conceptual setting yet at the same time comfortable and totally usable, a perfect open-air showcase for the Living Divani outdoor collection. A benchmark on the designer furniture scene due to the perfection, symmetry of the proportions and the taste of understated luxury of its upholstered furniture for interiors, the company has gradually developed a complete range also for outdoor, intended of home interiors and contract sector targeted by the brand. The growing aspiration towards the outdoor life has persuaded Living Divani to devise and create solutions which allow greater fusion between interior and exterior, interlinking and blending spaces. Thus the company has adapted for this purpose some of its most successful products, alongside designs created especially, interpreting with its own style the current trend of multiple use of furniture and the contamination between indoor and outdoor spaces. In the installation in the Botanical Garden the historic icons for outdoor stand alongside the 2014’s new products from Living Divani, to create pleasant situations for meeting and relaxation: from Frog armchair in orange, the iconic seat designed by Piero Lissoni in 1995, which will soon celebrate its twentieth birthday, still looking as fresh and dynamic as ever, to the informality of the blue Poncho, an armchair covered by fabric tautened by Kevlar laces plaited along the edge, via the unconventional white shapes of  the small tables of the Rabbit & the Tortoise Collection to the elegance of Filo Outdoor, a sofa and an armchair with ample shapes suspended on a tubular steel frame, painted or galvanized. Together with Living Divani outdoor collection, the LùBar, a Milanese rendition of the famous refreshment booth run by Lucrezia and Lucilla Bonaccorsi Beccaria in the beautiful Vendicari nature reserve, serving Sicilian street food and traditional recipes revisited to create special aperitif snacks, for a total pleasure.
