Passiflora by Maurizio Galante & Tal Lancman for VGO Associates
Project selected among the 10 must-see exhibitions in the 5VIE design district, for our DWalking guide dedicated to Milan Design Week 2022.
Passiflora chaise longue by Maurizio Galante & Tal Lancman for VGO Associates consists of 36 large and 57 small flowers made of hand-knotted and sewn vegetable leather.
It is a hand-knotted chaise longue on which to lie as if it were a soft bed of flowers.
“To be seated within a bouquet of blooming passion flowers, immersed in petals.” say the designers.
Constructed from a bent perforated industrial plate structure, to which soft leather flowers are hand tied and fixed by chrome rings.
The Passiflora chaise longue seat is elastic and unexpectedly comfortable.
Harmoniously, the cold metal contrasts with the warmth of the leather dressing, as industrial meets artisanal
