We visited @thedesignjunction 2018, and
that’s all we’ve seen (and loved)
It’s the first time for Bontempi Casa to participate at the designjunction, a design and interior decoration fair held every year in London. Furniture, design, art and craftsmanship. We tell you all the best about 2018 designjunction in this travel report.
At its eighth edition, designjunction has now built its reputation in the London trade fair scene. London, designjunction 2018. We at Bontempi Casa took part in this wonderful initiative dedicated entirely to design and interior decoration. With its nearly 30,000 visitors, designjunction connects the furniture industry to some 200 International brands, that meet every year in a lively, sparkling London, always full of good vibes. This September 2018, the fair venues were three: Oxo Tower Whorf, River side Walkway and Doon Street, at the South Bank district in Waterloo, directly with the heart facing the Thames. A multicultural destination that, for many years, has been the scene of International artists exhibiting installations in the British capital.
We at Bontempi Casa were here, in the innovative location of Doon Street, with our F21 booth on the first floor. Those who came to visit us know it well: the atmosphere was buzzing and inspirational, colorful and musical, bright and lively. Among about 200 pop-up-stands of artists, designers and International brands, divided into categories – lighting, accessories, fashion, jewelry, eyewear, home decor, lifestyle and outdoor – the first floor was totally dedicated to the world of furniture. And then a relaxation corner, drinks and music. An energetic and brilliant, multicultural and dynamic environment, as only London can offer.
We welcomed intrigued visitors and interested buyers during the three days of the fair open to the contract public and not only (September 20-23). At @thedesignjunction 2018 – where the official hashtag was #designevery – we presented a selection of new and revisited products that represent the Bontempi Casa style in all its nuances in a wide range of different products: chairs, armchairs, tables, sideboards , lamps and bookcases.
Experience with us the trip to designjunction 2018. London calling!
All the Bontempi Casa products at designjunction 2018
The Millennium XXL Table by Bontempi Casa was a comfortable support for brainstorming, ad hoc meetings and informal talks with customers and visitors. Millennium, revisited in its XXL version, has two lacquered metal bases and is available with new incredible finishes that maximize the beauty of its archirivolto design. Millennium XXL also available in a 4-meter version – for those who, as it often happens in London, love extra large conviviality. Maximum extension and comfort make this elegant and majestic table suitable for all refined environments.
Visitors were mesmerized by the linearity and the perfect geometry of Lexington, the bookcase by Bontempi Casa, designed to be 100% customized according to one’s preferences. Functional, with its mobile compartments and customized, with the possibility to choose the material and color of the dividers. Supermarble, Superceramic, Crystal or Leather? Solid but light, perfect for all living rooms. Symmetrical or asymmetrical, in any case perfectly balanced. The extra touch? Some evergreen plant among the shelves full of books and sculptures. A true object for collectors.
Mood. A name for a feeling. The Mood Chair by Bontempi Casa was one of the designjunction’s guest stars. Made with versatile silhouettes, in seven different versions. Rigid or padded, total black or yellow? The choice is up to you. Always perfect for the workplace, but also for a living room in search of a distinctive and iconic trait.
But the real star – it is appropriate to say – at designjunction was Galaxy, the latest news at Bontempi. Made of polypropylene and fiberglass, Galaxy is the combination of functionality, aesthetics and strength. The graphic of the decoration on its back is that lively detail that gives dynamism to the sitting. Designed for indoor and outdoor, Galaxy is available in eight different colors. One for all, all for one – this is how it’s said, isn’t it?
Beauty is feminine, and there is no woman who does not have at least one secret. This is how Secret was born, the Bontempi Casa writing desk that becomes a comfortable and practical desk and, at the same time, a treasure trove of precious objects. Secret has a wooden top and a leather frame available in many shades that match each personality. The practical storage compartment in Supermarble allows to neatly store jewelry, diaries and small or … big secrets.
Puffoso, the pouf designed by Bernhardt&Vella for Bontempi Casa is an elegant accessory with a steel structure that can be customized with different lacquers. Gold? Natural silver? Anthracite? The pouf in question has its own character and becomes the secret weapon of a multitasking house. Comfortable, practical, versatile.
Cosmopolitan is a word that we have always loved. Traveling, discovering, being enchanted by the multicultural influences of countries other than our own. With this assumption, Cosmopolitan is born, the Bontempi Casa sideboard that combines functionality with bespoke aesthetics. High, low, in Supermarble or Superceramic. 100% customizable and 100% perfect for every iconic and refined living room.
For those who wanted to stop for a moment and check their Instagram account, between a stand and the other, luckily there was Long Island, our extra comfortable armchair signed Bontempi Casa. The ideal way to rediscover the pleasure of returning home after a long day at work. But just equally perfect for the office relaxation room. A real tribute to wellbeing, to the health of the back and the pleasure of rest. Infinite combinations of colors and fabrics in 3 different types of structure, Long Island is 100% customizable.
