On the occasion of the 2018 Milan Salone del Mobile Baxter presents itself at the Exhibition with new collections and new moods that explore, even more in depth, the boundaries of the mix and match. Also, thanks to three new collaborations with Studio Pepe, Federico Peri and Hagit Pincovici, the proposed environments are generated by the combination of heterogeneous pieces and demonstrate a unique attitude to design rather than a particular form of expression and style.
It is a refined babel of languages where the natural and the artificial dialogue, mix and collide contrasting shapes, lines and soft and irregular textures with precise, hard and clean geometries. In the Baxter space there is a "fight" full of charm during which exciting moments are followed. The passions that have always characterized the company: the colours in the new leathers, periwinkle, green in different shades, burgundy, coral and grey. The new obsessions: the lines in three different textures. The challenges: the new materials including ancient stones with extraordinary chromatic strength, coming from rare mineral deposits, combined with lacquered surfaces that create great contrasts of light.
The compositional freedom and the mastery in the art of the eccentric combination, hallmark of the company, are emphasized by the combination of different styles and eras. A mix that does not appear chaotic but that takes on a special balance, as if all the elements were seen through a multicoloured kaleidoscope. It is the curiosity and the passion for beauty in all its forms that pushes not to follow a single path, but to experiment with the combination of unusual colours and materials.
The historical collaborations are consolidated with designers Paola Navone, Draga Obradovic & Aurel Basedow, Roberto Lazzeroni, Vincenzo De Cotiis, Pietro Russo and Antonino Sciortino, to whom three important new entries are added this year.
Studio Pepe by Arianna Lelli Mami and Chiara Di Pinto redesign the dining area of Baxter and two new designers granted by the world of art galleries, Federico Peri and Hagit Pincovici, sign their "capsules" presenting new eclectic collections, closer to the world of craftsmanship and the single piece instead of that one of series design.
The Baxter house thus becomes a wonderful wunderkammer in which everything is allowed, free from the style constraints its inhabitants have only one rule: to gather and collect what they like and represents them.
