italian company maletti has collaborated with l’oreal to develop the first range of furniture for hairstylist salons with a low environmental impact and approached italian designers elisa and stefano giovannoni of studio giovannoni to conceive two series: ‘green first’ and ‘alu green’. the two collections were conceived to be fabricated from eco-friendly materials, combined with a design that nurtures a more relaxing atmosphere. characterized by the warmth of bent wood and comfortable seating, the furniture was designed to embody a domestic, casual and homely feel, able to be freely arranged to reference the approach of styling a living room at home.
