The first time of Pedrali at the BIENNALE INTERIEUR


The products of the Italian company selected for the furnish of the BIENNALE BISTRO
Mornico al Serio, 07th October 2014 – The first participation of Pedrali at the BIENNALE INTERIEUR
(Kortrijk, October 17-26) coincides with the presence of Joseph Grima as curator of the cultural programme,
as evidence of the growth of this event as meeting place for experiencing avant-garde trends and the
influences which define contemporary design.

The Italian manufacturer will focus on the wooden collections as Malmö family, born from an imaginary
journey along the sides of a Scandinavian lake, Tivoli, which recalls the traditional wooden chairs, Inga,
featured by soft and essential shapes, Frida, winner of the XXII Compasso d’Oro ADI Award for its “simple
sculptural beauty” and Babila, chairs able to move along tradition and innovation with great agility.
A choice that shows the will and commitment of Pedrali in keeping its research in woodworking. A path
started in 2006 with the opening of its production plant in Manzano (UD), reorganized and enlarged this
year, where a team of skilled artisans, supported by modern technologies, manufacture furnishing products
with the finest woods.

Moreover the Babila chair, in the plywood shell stained black and steel rood sled frame version, will be the
key player of the BIENNALE BISTRO, a temporary space in the city center to meet people, drinking a
coffee or tasting some delicious Belgian dishes.
The interior project is conceived and developed by the last eight winners of The Belgian Designers of the
Year Award: Alain Berteau (2006), Nedda El-Asmar (2007), Stefan Schöning (2008), Sylvain Willenz
(2009), Bram Boo (2010), Nathalie Dewez (2011), Alain Gilles (2012), and Jean-François D’Or (2013).

Here below the description of the displayed collections:

The chairs and armchairs have ash timber frame in bleached or black stained finish; multilayer, fabric or
leather upholstered shell. Lounge armchairs, coffee tables and the barstools are all made of solid ash frame
with tapered legs. Malmö tables, fixed or extendable, have ash wooden legs matched with solid laminate or

Tivoli recalls the traditional wooden chairs, maintaining comfort and inspiring conviviality.
From the right combination of craftsmanship and technological innovation a new collection is born; its soft
shapes are designed to ensure the best comfort with great simplicity and executive rigour. A clean design
where the structural elements are perfectly integrated in the ash frame. The three-dimensional curves and
the generous proportions of the back rest make Tivoli an ergonomic and elegant chair.
The collection includes both the chair and the armchair. Upholstered seat and back available.Tivoli_Design Cazzaniga-Mandelli-Pagliarulo_Pedrali_low

Frida is a chair that includes a refined technology and it represents a reference point in the wood working.
The most extraordinary element is the overlapping of a 3.5 mm three-dimensional shell on a solid wood
frame. The solid wood frame is featured by geometrical sections with variable shapes, that become thinner
along the edges, so to give the chair a light image and to enhance the conceptual strength of the shell.FRIDA_design_Odo Fioravanti_Pedrali_low
design Odo Fioravanti
A collection in ash wood able to move along tradition and innovation with great agility. The legs and the
back eyelets are a reminiscence of the craft wooden chairs, while for the plywood shell he experimented the
technique of variable thickness working process. The result is an airy and comfortable sitting with a careful
and accurate use of wood. Babila is available also with four legs frame in steel tube Ø 16mm, or sled frame
in steel rod Ø 10mm and with technopolymer shell.Babila_FAMILY_Design Odo Fioravanti_Pedrali_low
