The year 2016 marks a significant milestone for Bonaldo: the company, which specialises in the production of furniture and interior design items, celebrates its 80th anniversary this year.
The Salone del Mobile 2016 will be the perfect opportunity to present a very extensive range of new products, characterized by the possibility of customising individual products, choosing from a selection of materials, sizes, shapes and colours.
Here is a short preview of the products scheduled to be exhibited at the show (Bonaldo booth co-ordinates: Hall 5, Booth F09/G06).
“When you design a table, you usually think about the shape and material of the table top: with Hulahoop I wanted to emphasise the space between the table top and the floor, as I wanted to create an ’empty volume’ which was essential but at the same time dynamic and filled with visual messages” – Alessandro Busana
Named after a fun game, Hulahoop is the new family of tables designed by Alessandro Busana for Bonaldo. The name itself conveys the substantial aspects of the design: appeal and dynamism, summed up in a simple circular element developed in space.
Hulahoop is characterized by a minimal table top and a frame comprising metallic rings which, owing to perspective, overlap one another, giving rise to a graphic pattern capable of rendering a dynamic image that changes every time depending on the viewpoint.
Hulahoop offers multiple combinations of materials and dimensions. The table top – which is free of sharp edges, simple and clean-cut – is in fact available in various types of marble (Calacatta, Carrara, Marquinia, Emperador), in solid wood (American walnut-wood, anthracite grey brushed or natural brushed oak-wood) or in glass (transparent, acid-treated black, extra light acid-treated white). The decorative base is made of metal painted in a host of different colours or with copper, brass or pickled finish.

“Pier” is another English word for a wharf or jetty. In the Anglo-Saxon world, the word is also used to define docks in ports where ships can dock directly from the sea, featuring geometrical shapes that resemble those used to make up Piers.
Designed by Roberto Paoli, Piers is an object comprising elementary figures, each one performing one of the three functions of the product: the square becomes a practical coat hanger fitted with solid wood knobs, the circle is a mirror and the rectangle a convenient storage shelf.
Piers has its very own code, consisting of overlapping decorative combinations which make it concurrently useful and playful, capable of playing its roles – usually allocated to several different objects – lightly and harmoniously.
What sets Piers apart from the rest is its fresh and lively styling, which brightens up settings with fun and colour: a mix&match of characteristics that makes it perfect for saving space in a young and modern home. The lacquered wood panels of Piers are available in four colour combinations – yellow and anthracite grey, green and dove-grey, powder pink and amaranth, orange and dove-grey.
Piers is produced in a single size: 126×66 cm.
Designed by Mauro Lipparini, the Blazer family of complementary seating widens thanks to a versatile sofa, suitable for both the living room and the bedroom. The Blazer sofa can be used to furnish domestic settings where space is an issue, as well as hospitality industry environments.
The slightly sinuous shape of Blazer is relaxing and enveloping. The combinations of colours and textures, whether identical or in contrast, immediately express a fluid and confidential dynamic appeal, whereas the soft and comfortable padding on the body rests on a light-weight tubular metal frame, available in various finishes.
Dimensions: L.150 x D.83 x H.80 cm
The distinguishing feature of the Alvar bed, designed by Giuseppe Viganò, lies in the possibility of “plying” the bed to every specific need, thanks to the combination of padded platforms devised to create the headboard, the bed surround and the footboard, choosing from various shapes and compositions. The bed can also be ordered with a matching bedside table, in two different sizes.
The superior level of customisation also concerns the type of quilting, the upholstery cover – which is fully removable – and the colour (a maximum of 8 different textile/leather covers can be ordered).
In the single bed version, Alvar can become a versatile sofa-bed when required, providing a practical interior design solution for various occasions.
