Design duo Lanzavecchia + Wai’s updated PLAYplay collection featuring bright clashing sections and “huggable” furniture. The range is aimed at people living in compact homes, with pieces designed to be lightweight and versatile, and the design remind of the objects in motion.
It includes shelving with red and orange parts that jut out, as if “two separate forms have collided and coalesced”. The effect is further emphasized with the contrast between the wood grain and the colored sections. A media console follows a similar style, appearing as a standard wooden table sat on top of a smaller bright yellow one.
Also part of the updated range is a cabinet that has brightly colored striped accents – similar to the lenticular-patterned console from the first PLAYplay collection – and is surrounded by a section of lightweight metal piping.
Tubular details similarly feature in a pair of desks, which have wooden tabletops above brightly colored legs that extend up and around the back of the furniture. The rail seems to lift and suspend the wooden volumes, with round corners that are friendly and beckoning.
