Circle, square, ellipse, rectangle, triangle. Line, point, surface. Geometry is the mother tongue, the compositional and expressive alphabet from which Porro draws year in year out to create pieces with a deeply evocative feel, where abstraction and concreteness, solidity and lightness are balanced.

A custom-made creation, halfway between seriality and customisation, Porro’s home can be suited to clean, definite settings modulated by the rigour of black and white, as well as to soft, intimate interiors enlivened by the warmth of wood and by decorations: each creation is a world of its own, a unique alchemy between space, matter and colour, always revealing the unmistakable mix of style and savoir-faire which represent the brand’s distinctive mark. This year once again, the fundamental ingredient of Porro’s home is material research: with passion, personality and an expert eye, the company has sifted through infinite suggestions to select only a fragment of it, resisting the erosion of time and fashion.
The grid of the Porro’s space, the 4 company’s systems are refined each year, offering a texture in which to move freely, giving rise to ever-changing configurations. A strongly visual and impressive composition that in the night area becomes a minimal walk-in closet for a boutique or the home of a hedonist, and in the living area an open cabinet and large capacity bookshelf.
Art director Piero Lissoni oversees the update of the systems, also putting his signature on two new products for the day area.
The new padded Pioggia chair, a contemporary interpretation of the classic wood chair, belongs to the same family of the Neve chair and the Ghiaccio armchair. Its streamlined legs, available in natural, black stained, red stained and white stained solid ash, remain visible, conversing with the soft fabric or leather covering that perfectly suits the seat and the armrests, covering them.
In parallel, the creative bond continues between Porro and Gamfratesi, that is Enrico Fratesi and Stine Gam, the pair who combine the Mediterranean spirit and Nordic culture. A new classic, the Kite armchair designed for the 2017 collection, is a soft but also generous product, that can inhabit an office’s waiting area, as well as a period house thanks to its evergreen look and its timeless charm.
In the night area, an intimate size and a complete leather cover characterise the new Sadoru bed by Oscar and Gabriele Buratti brothers, two of the company’s favourites for their measured style and their eye for detail. Tall and solid, with its strong yet not excessively deep headboard, Sadoru easily fits all home and contract environments, where the eye is captivated by the chosen material.
