Studio Klass — Milan Design Week 2016

Studio Klass / Marco Maturo e Alessio Roscini

We are pleased to invite you to discover our new projects during the upcoming Milan Design Week 2016.

After a long collaboration with the design brand FIAM, this year we will present a furniture collection which includes three new products.

We have been asked to design a collection which is focused on FIAM’s main material, the curved glass, but also explores new possibilities combining it with different materials such as wood and leather.

We will also unveil the first product of the new collaboration with Discipline, a new modular shelving system made in beech wood and aluminium.


Studio Klass.Plié Collection

A Plié is one of the principal dance steps of ballet, that consists of a slow bending of the knees, keeping them symmetrically pointed outwards. It is considered to be among the most elegant and technically expressive movements of the discipline, and requires awareness and ability from the student to execute it.

The Pliè Collection for FIAM comes from the idea of reconciling the rationality of the product with the value of the object created following artisanal work processes, in which the glass, main material of the collection, is modelled with the same rigor and attention with which a dance step is executed, chasing a harmonious balance between classic craftsmanship and contemporary design. Plié is developed in three different products – Table, Chair and Cabinet – that become part of a collection with geometric lines and sinuous lengths, with reference to the modern architectural heritage of post war Milan, composed of lines and forms always attributed to a rigorous logic, result of a continuous connection between production techniques and materials.

Axis is a modular shelving system designed to be joinable horizontally and vertically, developed to allow many solutions of layout both for contract installations or for home solutions.

The shelves create a mix of joints at multiple levels, giving a sense of lightness and elegance while keeping a minimal aesthetic. Axis is made in beech plywood merged with CNC milled aluminium joints.
