CAPDELL celebrates its fiftieth anniversary at Milano Design Week 2017

Milano, April 19th 2017 - The historic Spanish company Capdell has celebrated its fiftieth anniversary at Milano Design Week 2017 with a new "outfit": a booth designed by the Swedish trio of architects Claesson, Koivisto, Rune, who have collaborated with the company for several years. The project, inspired by the work of the Mexican architect Luis Barragán, is characterized by clean lines, strength of colour and sense of openness.

The ideal setting to introduce the new collection created by international designers who collaborate with Capdell: Gabi Teixidó, Fran Silvestre Arquitectos, Patrick Norguet, Vicent Martínez, Claesson Koivisto Rune, Mario Ruiz.

On the occasion of Capdell’s fiftieth anniversary, the company also presented the first date of the social project/exhibition, Sit Think and Play, with its 50 unique pieces, created by the Capdell people, that will travel throughout the year to the world’s capital cities.

The new Capdell collection was realized by the collaboration of several of the most renowned international designers: Gabi Teixidó, Fran Silvestre Arquitectos, Patrick Norguet, Vicent Martínez, Claesson Koivisto Rune, Mario Ruiz.

Insula, wherever your imagination takes you
Design by Patrick Norguet,
Modular seating systems with seat upholstered

Insula is a set of seats which, when joined together, can create different ambiences. Different types of environment. It is ideal for homes or common spaces. A combination that inspires creativity and personalization.
It was Patrick Norguet wish to meet the expectations generated by this first collaborative project with Capdell and opted for a simple, elegant and, above all, imaginative solution.
What strikes you about Insula is its open nature. Insula was created to grow and evolve. To mutate in search of new shapes, new structures, even new uses.

Libris, somewhere between tradition and modernity.
A design by Vicent Martínez
Tables collection

Libris is a collection inspired by antique Dutch game tables, tables which place value on cabinetry, and which are simply built and mounted, and clearly opt for a return to classical types.
This is a collection that has a contemporary design while not forgetting tradition.
Fold-down and fixed tables for homes, caterers and offices.
A closer look reveals bentwood and laminate wood arches and solid wood benches which support laminate board tops. These tops, like the leaves of a book bound with a carbon fibre spine open up and amaze us with their magnificence.

@, with its feet firmly on the ground.
A design by Gabi Teixidó
Chairs collection

It is not easy to set about designing a chair and actually end up making a chair. This is no platitude. It is easy to lose your way in this repetitive process and in your attempts at being different. It is easy to end up doing something else.
However, Gabi Teixidó was very much aware of this pitfall when he designed @.
It is a chair that does not lose sight of what is important. One that invites you to sit down and stay put. Stylish and perfectly integrated in any kind of setting. An intelligent and practical collection, it has a common base and several alternative backs, an armchair with or without arms, X or XL.
That’s @. And, there’s no doubt about it, the best part is the sitting down.

CPD, the exact balancing point.
A design by Fran Silvestre Arquitectos
Chairs collection

CPD springs from duality. From the confrontation of elements, which are in principle antagonistic, in a search for complements and camaraderie.

Hence the use of metal for the supporting structure, the square outline and the octagonal geometry. Straight lines and cold materials which afford the piece stability.
On the other hand, we have the shell in affable natural wood, with organic geometry to accommodate you with care and comfort.
The whole cannot be more balanced. A creation that is surprisingly ergonomic and comfortable.

Mirò: joy in colours
Design by Claesson Koivisto Rune
Chairs collection

Fresh, fun, rich in shapes and colours. Mirò is the chair collection featuring a thin plywood or beechwood frame and slender metal legs.
This ultra-thin, light, almost ethereal profile with a name that immediately evokes the joy of colour, is available in a wide range of colours, from the most lively to more simple nuances.
In the colour plywood versions, the metal legs are lacquered the same colour of the chair, creating an elegant single piece: a flash of colour that lights up the living area. Mirò is available also in a version which features armrests and a thin padded cushion of the same colour.

PLY, the simplicity of an embrace.
Design by Mario Ruiz
Chairs and armchairs collection

This project is an exercise in lightweight solidity. A simple shape that manages to transmit character with its slight and unassuming formula. The design of this chair and armchair is based on streamlined expression: calf leather covers a wooden or metal tube structure like a soft, lightweight suit.
The body is an envelope, covering the architecture of the chair and helping it serve its purpose. A clear and simple folding process helps shape the piece and conceals unique expressive license at the back which is not an addition but rather emerges from the actual expression of the body of the chair in its construction: two openings that outline a shape with character.
This is a seat that aspires to be a discrete daily companion. A balanced piece capable of sharing all kinds of spaces.
