Around the World with Flexform: In search of the most beautiful projects

We asked ourselves: where do our sofas end up? Which homes do they occupy? Which cities? So we decided to take a trip to find out. Blown away by the wealth of projects on Archilovers, we began searching for the most beautiful homes in the world, the most elegant hotels, the most sophisticated restaurants, posted by architects all around the world, all of which host our collections.

From San Paolo to Anversa, from Tel Aviv to Hawaii, from rustic Tuscany to Californian villas, here are the images which tell tales of the architectural world. A trip that took our breath away, that moved and inspired us, and which, we hope, will inspire you too.

 

The angular composition Grounpiece  characterizes the living area of the Wairau Valley House in New Zealand, the residence created by Parsonson architects.

 

In Montréal, Canada, the architect René Gestion René Desjardins created a home composed of white volumes: essential, luminous, and made welcoming thanks to the Soft Dream sofa.

 

A color palette of grey shades and a fiery touch of red. The Cestone sofa and the Happy armchairs in a house designed by the studio Casa do Passadiço in Portugal.

 

Exposed beams and wood paneling define the Francisci Residence building recovery project, located in Todi. It is enhanced by the sofa in Groundpiece fabric, designed by Antonio Citterio.

 

The Alexander Brenner Architekten studio chose Flexform to furnish SU House in Germany: pure volumes and contrasting planes create essential, wide spaces.

 

Exposed brick and corten steel. These are the materials which define the building shell of Railway House Santpoort, a home immersed in the verdure of South Kennemerland National Park. Inside,  the Lifesteel sofa is surrounded by large windows. 

 

The Flexform collections blend in perfectly in shared areas, too; just like in this elegant space in Washington, designed by Cecconi Simone studio, where the A.B.C. easy chair interacts with the concrete and wood which characterize the space.

 

The Jane: in Anversa, the architect Piet Boon transforms the chapel of a former military hospital into a refined restaurant. The original ceiling and the white walls make the perfect backdrop for an impressive 12 meter chandelier. The un-released velvet version of the Feel Good easy chair occupies the central area of the room.

 

Antonio Citterio chose stools from the Feel Good collection to furnish ‘Princi Cafè spirito di Milano’. A metropolitan feel with total black walls, wide glass surfaces and wooden tables.

 

Hotel Room Mate Aitana was recently inaugurated on an artificial island in the center of Amsterdam. Bakers Architecten BNA BV studio created an entirely glass-walled building which overlooks the city’s canals. Inside, a large and colorful area lounge welcomes the hotel’s visitors.
