Cristina Celestino x Fendi

Presented during the last edition of Milan Design Week, “Back Home” is a new furniture collection by italian designer Cristina Celestino for FENDI, produced by Luxury Living Group, created to celebrate the Maison’s iconic Pequin striped motif, born the same year of the launch of the House, in 1987.

The collection consists of a refined and creative range of furniture pieces, showing an intriguing combination of materials, like elegant marbles and onyxes and fascinating metallic surfaces for surprising tactile and colour effects.
Sinuous armchairs and sofas wears perfectly the Pequin stripes, mixing feminine shapes with a mannish geometric look.  Together with the stripes the italian designer, who had access to FENDI archives, chose the rose like design (created by Karl Lagerfeld in 1983) and used it for the coffee tables and the carpets, where she let the FF logo emerge gracefully.


Fashion is also part of the inspiration for the collection, with the range of mirrors and lamps revealing silhouettes inspired by cufflinks, while the cabinets echo Art Decò’s stylistic codes with their juxtaposition of geometric shapes, bold curves, strong vertical lines, sport surfaces.

// Presentata durante la scorsa edizione della Milano Design Week, “Back Home” è la nuova collezione della designer Cristina Celestino per Fendi, prodotta da Luxury Living Group, creata per celebrare l’iconico motivo a righe Pequin, nato nel 1987, anno di lancio della linea Casa dell’azienda di moda.
La designer ha mirato a creare una raffinata e creativa gamma di arredi che presenta un’intrigante combinazione di materiali, mixando eleganti marmi e onici ed affascinanti superfici metalliche che mostrano sorprendenti effetti tattili e cromatici. 
Divani e poltrone dalle forme sinuose indossano perfettamente le righe Pequin, abbinando così forme femminili a look geometrici più maschili. Insieme al motivo a righe, la designer ha selezionato dagli archivi Fendi anche il disegno a forma di rosa, ideato da Karl Lagerfeld nel 1987, utilizzandolo per tavolini e tappeti, dove il logo FF emerge con grazia.

Anche la moda è parte dell’ispirazione della collezione, con specchiere e lampade che rivelano forme ispirate ai gemelli da polso maschili. I mobili d’ingresso riprendono invece i codici stilistici dell’Art Decò, con la giustapposizione di forme geometriche, curve audaci, forti linee verticali e superfici sportive.
