After experience in the design of residential and commercial spaces, Andrea Parisio began to collaborate with Laura Ferraro Crosti and the first store was inaugurated in 1996, in Milan: a space/laboratory of ideas, in which the designer designs and presents the first objects in his collection. Over the years, the collection has been expanded and enriched, and the continuous collaboration with the designer guarantees the brand a consistent and homogeneous growth in terms of style.
As Artistic Director, Andrea Parisio oversees the coordination of brand image, the design of the Company’s flagship stores and showrooms at international trade shows. He lives and works in Milan.
Among the icons designed by Andrea Parisio, we point out:
BELMON – 1998
Square shapes for a Meridiani evergreen tree, whose intentionally reduced seat depth makes it ideal for carrying on a conversation. This line includes modular elements, a chaise-longue, a dormeuse and armchairs of different sizes, as well as a sofa bed version for maximum versatility of use, without giving up refined aesthetics.
LENNY FIT SOFA – 2000
A balance of proportions between softness and contemporary appeal: this collection displays both a metropolitan look and cosy, rounded shapes. The Lenny Fit series includes sofas of different sizes and a small armchair for conversation or relaxation corners. The upholstery follows the soft lines of the collection, leaving the details of the base visible. The sofa is characterised by the presence of a single cushion for a more contemporary appeal.
CRUZ CHAIR – 2003
An almost archetypal shape, pure, with studied sobriety: this is the main aesthetic feature of the Cruz chair, also available in a version with armrests. Careful research of materials, along with the skills of our craftsmen, bring to life a vast selection of finishes to make every product in our collection one of a kind.
BELT COFFEE TABLE – 2015
Geometric perfection is the key aesthetic of this family of coffee tables available in several sizes for each shape. Made with lateral faces on the perimeter, in the precious artisan finishes of bronzed brass or platinum-plated steel, the tops have several finishes ranging from glass to mirror, and from lacquers to marble. The very dynamic Mirror version is completely covered with reflective surfaces.
Zooming in on the Plinto table – 2015
A shape and a name that recall stability and planning: from the Latin “plinthus”, the Plinto collection designates the architectural element that serves as a support for a column. A sculptural table marked by three elements: a monolithic base, a light structure and a top, available in different shapes and materials to benefit from numerous compositions. The versatile aspect and the almost infinite customisation choices denote this emblematic collection, without losing sight of the neatness of the lines and the balance of the design in each of the versions.
The ZOE WOOD collection - 2020
Zoe Open Air is a collection of armchairs and small sofas characterised by a clever combination of outdoor materials. The polypropylene rope is the protagonist of this collection. Inspired by boating mooring ropes, and supported by a painted aluminium frame: the four colours available – Chalk, Petrol, Elephant and Black – make the rope elegant in its simplicity. This collection has an upholstered seat and a precious handmade weave, with the backrest available in two versions.
