Dezeen promotion: Italian brand Pedrali has added new designs to Blume, a collection of seats and tables designed by German designer Sebastian Herkner with rounded cushions and slender frames.
The Blume armchair and lounge armchair were among several new products that Pedrali unveiled during the Supersalone furniture fair in Milan earlier this month.
Like the other chairs in the collection, these armchairs are characterised by a cushioned seat and backrest with pebble-like shapes, while the legs have a subtle flower profile.
The armrests feature the same seven-petal profile, produced from extruded aluminium. They have been carefully shaped to follow the curvature of the other elements to create a continuation of the existing form.
“With its enveloping softness, the Blume collection offers refined chairs designed both for relaxing living areas and for convivial restaurant and lounge settings, allowing the user’s wellbeing to take centre stage,” said Pedrali.
Herkner designed the first Blume chair in 2020. One of the key features of the design is its clean form, which conceals all screws from view.
The new additions follow suit – there are no visible fixings connecting the armrests to the rest of the chair.
Everything is held in place by a steel structural element under the seat, which is removable to allow the components to be disassembled and recycled when no longer required.
The Blume armchair is also designed to be stackable, for versatile use.
The seats are available in a range of fabrics, with grey, black, brass or bronze finishes for the anodised aluminium elements.
For the Supersalone, this year’s special edition of the Salone del Mobile, the Blume collection was part of a terracotta-toned exhibition designed by Milanese studio Calvi Brambilla, titled #Pedralitimeless.
Intended as a cabinet of curiosities, the installation brought together images, objects and products charting the brand’s 58-year-history.
Other new products on show for the exhibition included Caementum, a cast concrete outdoor table designed by Marco Merendi and Diego Vencato, and a new version of the Patrick Jouin-designed Ila armchair with a four-leg frame.
More information about both the Blume armchair and the Blume lounge armchair is available on Pedrali’s website.
