Collections / Lando Gingerbread
The Lando Gingerbread collection, designed by
Paola Navone, rediscovers the fascinating strength of wood and reshapes traditions through the search of unusual combinations of shapes, materials and styles.
The design is inspired by imaginative Caribbean architecture, where the "gingerbread" style buildings are formed of towers, balustrades and cornices with a fairy tale air.
The chairs, tables and benches recall classic forms that have lost their third dimension, like cardboard furniture in a dolls' house.
Solid oak, sawed and unvarnished, is matched with traditional Bassano pottery, white almost translucent parchment and steel. The effect is modern, unexpected and almost alien.
