matteo nunziati design unopiù davos collection

 

Unopiù introduces a lightweight modular seating system suitable for a variety of spaces, with the launch of the Davos collection. Developed in collaboration with designer Matteo Nunziati, the company crafted a furniture series that addresses a key trend in contemporary living: the continuity between indoors and outdoors. This approach led to a range of adaptable, versatile pieces, including modular sofas, chaise longues, armchairs, and coffee tables.

unopiù shapes outdoor comfort since 1978


Since its establishment in 1978, the Italian brand has been committed to furnishing outdoor spaces with the same care and attention as interior spaces, conveying an equal amount of comfort and quality to the outside.  This dedication shines through in Unopiù’s collaborative endeavor with designer Matteo Nunziati.

 

Reflecting on their partnership, Nunziati shares, Unopiù has invented outdoor living, in the sense that in 1978 it was the first to believe in furniture elements that could be placed outside. There is often a tendency to adapt interior products to the outdoors, whereas working with a company like Unopiù has helped me to alter my perspective. So the idea is to design an outdoor product that would actually relate to the interior.’

bridging indoor and outdoor spaces

 

The inspiration behind the Davos collection stems from the architectural heritage of Switzerland, hinting at a town at the center of the Walser population with its name. Drawing parallels to the traditional craftsmanship found in historic buildings around this mountainous region, the aluminum structure maintains joints that mirror the distinct right-angle shapes in such constructions. This attention to detail extends throughout the whole collection, characterized by its modular design, that enables various arrangements through easy assembly.

modularity and functionality support continuity between indoors and outdoors

 

 

Davos offers a variety of components, including modular sofas, chaise longues, armchairs, and coffee tables, that can be easily mixed and matched to blend into diverse settings. This results in a collection that continuously adapts and evolves to suit its surroundings. Although the modular seating system appears with typical features of an outdoor product, its upholstery ensures the comfort and softness that is usually expected from indoor furniture, allowing it to bridge the gap between indoor and outdoor living spaces.
