Natuzzi Italia, an Italian furniture company based in Puglia, presents its collection for 2021: ‘The Circle of Harmony’. For this collection, the furniture giant collaborated with eight various designers, all with a different design approach.
Each and every one of these pieces refers to the sea in a subtle and refined manner.
'The Circle of Harmony’ is an expression of the identity of the Natuzzi brand. For a preview of the entire collection, Natuzzi presents ‘DEEP’, the contribution of Nika Zupanc, one of the eight designers. Nika Zupanc is a Slovenian designer who was mainly inspired by the sea for her part of ‘The Circle of Harmony’. In particular, it was the Adriatic Sea that caught her attention. ‘I visited Natuzzi’s headquarters in Puglia by flying over this wonderful body of water that we both share. The sea represents a division but, at the same, time it is shared. it reflects our common values,’ says Zupanc. When you see the furniture, it's no surprise that the ‘DEEP’ collection was inspired by the sea. Wavy shapes, sandy and blue tones and rough textures dominate the collection which consists of the 'Wave' sofa, 'Ottoman' pouf, 'Adore' armchair, 'Tide' bookcase, 'Voyage' table, 'Joy' lamps, 'Mermaid' and 'Sailor' mirrors and the 'Vortex' carpet. Each and every one of these pieces refers to the sea in a subtle and refined manner. With a retro accent, the pieces still succeed to feel contemporary and fresh. ‘DEEP’ is a furniture collection that celebrates the collaboration between Natuzzi and Zupanc. The designers searched for elements that connect or separate them. This resulted in unique furniture that is subtle in its form and explicit in its meaning. ‘The collection merges different attributes of mine and Natuzzi’s DNA. Seemingly contrasting points form the basis of the collection, but as the pieces are placed together, the results are wonderful and cohesive. The viewer can make connections between the designs. The natural shapes and colours of the sea helped merge the pieces,’ adds Zupanc.
