An immersion in the world of sleep and dreams: a hushed atmosphere, soft walls, beds that reinterpret ancient processes. Bolzan opens in via Mercato 3 in Milan with the site specific installation by Zanellato/Bortotto

"Atelier of dreams", as well as a factory that knows how to combine artisanal and industrial dimensions, Bolzan opens its first flagship store in Milan. The novelties are set in a setting that will make way for a complete renovation in the coming months.

“The Dreams in Progress theme is the starting point of this set-up”, explain the designers Giorgia Zanellato and Daniele Bortotto.

The concept revolves around a sort of textile construction site, as if to indicate the laying of the first stone for what will be the company showroom that will soon be born in these months”.

The compositions made of textile scraps and furniture padding show the attention to the environment which is one of the brand's vocations, as well as that for manufacturing and detail as an expression of Italian know-how.

On the ground floor, the Jack-e and Bend-e beds by Zanellato/Bortotto are exhibited, examples of sustainable design created with the contribution of a quality local supply chain. Re-edition of Bend, a classic in the Bolzan catalogue, the Bend-e bed reinterprets the ancient working of forged iron, enhancing it with the fabric of a century-old manufacture.

“The original Bend-e project - Giorgia Zanellato and Daniele Bortotto explain - was born taking inspiration from past furnishings made of forged iron, whose shapes and curves were obtained by hand-made work directly on the matter.

Industrial evolution then ended up removing forged iron from design, which was relegated to the production of traditional furnishings, with distinctly decorative characteristics, among which there are beds".

The Onimod family of coffee tables and bedside tables by Federico Angi – also on the ground floor - are a tribute to the design philosophy of Le Corbusier which makes versatile furniture for the home. Upstairs, Chocolate by Alessandro Stabile is on display, a multifunctional daybed that can be transformed into a sofa, bench or chaise longue.

An interior and product project in which the different types of furniture from the bedroom expand to the other rooms of increasingly fluid and evolving homes.
