Borderline

Mauro Lipparini

Inspired and original yet still in line with that quintessential sense of bespoke comfort, Borderline helps to bring a feel of intimacy to the contemporary home. The sleek, lightweight design elongates at the armrests, which are supported by stunning brackets in satined metal, boosting the levity of the piece.

Designer

Mauro Lipparini

Mauro Lipparini earned a degree in Architecture in 1980 from Università degli Studi of Florence, where he also worked as a professor. He won the international design contests Young & Designer Milan (1987) and International Du Pont Award Köln (Germany, 1988 and 1989). Lipparini’s intense activity in the field of industrial design covers office and home furniture, the textile industry and other products created for many companies in Europe and Japan. In architecture and interior design, Lipparini has concentrated mainly on private and public housing, on showrooms, retail sales outlets and exposition installations. Furthermore, Lipparini also designs and realizes advanced corporate identity image systems that range from graphics to editorial services to production. Lipparini’s style is based on the essential shapes and the clear and decisive lines that are characteristic of natural minimalism. His creations are imbued with a joyful spirit and with an elating sense of aesthetic pleasure and creativity. Thanks to his free use of color, organic weave patterns and original visual ideas, Lipparini amplifies the palette of minimalism, conveying the spontaneity and power of this aesthetic style and projecting it towards a new era of great maturity and wellbeing.
