Building on the comfort promised by the existing Aldora range of upholstered seating, Celestino's latest sofa fuses chaise longue with tradition sofa to fascinating effect. Inspired by Milanese decadence, the Vis A Vis sees a pair of contrastingly placed seats placed next to one another but facing different directions, gifting the piece with a sense of privacy not ordinarily associated with such seating.
Whilst perfectly placed in a commercial setting, the chair has an alternative persona, one which becomes a calming and deeply comfortable hideaway when used in a private space.
Italian designer Cristina Celestin’s work is based on extensive observation and research, exploring the potential of shapes and functions, combining the traditional and the contemporary in iconic and timeless ways.
Celestino has worked with many international brands, including Moooi, Fendi, Fujifilm and Seletti. She won the Special Jury Prize in the “Salone del Mobile Milano Awards” in 2016 and the Elle Deco International Design Award in the Wall Covering category in 2017.
