With three different stylistic codes but a single vocation in common, namely that of providing a functional product, comfortable for work but also for relaxation, Infiniti presents a preview of the three new references it will bring to the fair: the GT01 and Skol chairs and the Kai table.
Salone del Mobile 2023: the three Infiniti references
The GT01 chair designed by Gio Tirotto
The GT01 seat, designed by Gio Tirotto, is articulated through precise thematic layers: first of all, the careful research of materials, such as aluminum and plywood in an oak finish, which can be easily disassembled and for this totally recyclable, as well as restorable over time.
The natural or painted sled frame, with squared and clear-cut but at the same time elegant shapes, frames simple and ergonomic multilayer panels, thanks to the curvatures that accommodate the seat.
It is inspired by the post-industrial style, also highlighted by the absence of visible fixings and the presence of marked welds, which make GT01 minimal and with extreme formal cleanliness.
The rational approach of the design outlines a universal and versatile silhouette, making the seat suitable for living and office environments, whether they are private or public spaces, as confirmed by its strong stackability.
The negligible weight, given by the use of aluminum for the structure, enhances its handling and facilitates transport, without affecting its stability. In the GT01 everything that is functional is skilfully mixed by subtraction, making it light, minimalist and sinuous, with the ambition of describing a 'timeless' design.
The Skol seat, designed by Needs studio
The peculiar shapes and the delicate and timeless structure of the chair Skol refer to the familiar school chairs, coupled with the desks in which the experiences of each person have followed one another over the years of childhood and adolescence.
The new Skol emerges from the educational environment, while maintaining the reassuring and evocative sensations that guided the creative thinking of Needs Studio: the general aesthetic simplicity, given by the 25 mm round steel tube, contrasts with the refined details, such as the delicate support of the seat and back to the frame, supported by the classic rivet fastening, creating a play of lightness and sinuosity.
The soft and welcoming yet robust shapes intersect in a game of solids and voids, in which absolute comfort and distinctly retro style, but with contemporary influences, win out. Skol is available with or without armrests, with seat and back in oak plywood or polypropylene, also ideal for outdoor use, colored to match or contrast with the chromed or painted structure.
The versatility that distinguishes it makes it ideal for numerous uses: it is perfect for cafes, bars, restaurants, bistros, but also for meeting rooms and areas dedicated to coworking.
The Kai table, designed by Formidable studio
The Kai table, designed by Formidable studio, is inspired by the traditional Japanese bow, the true essence of the art of Kyudo. Symbol of meeting and sharing, it is like a bridge between people, who gather around it to create bonds.
The elegant and sinuous lines of the painted steel elliptical tube legs recall the arch and its beauty, while the solidity and squared lines of the top evoke the strength and stability of human relationships.
Thanks to the contemporary yet classic design, Kai can be placed in all contexts in which life happens, as a bridge between past and present, between tradition and innovation.
The versatility of Kai is perfectly expressed in the numerous finishes and sizes available, even generous ones, ideal for furnishing meeting rooms, offices, rooms dedicated to the home-office, co-working environments.
The table is available with a cross or arched leg structure, which can respectively be combined with square or rectangular tops.
