MEET THE DESIGNER: Martinelli Venezia

An innovative reflection on the concept of suspended furniture.

the creation of our product ‘Gravity‘ was the result of a fruitful collaboration with Xilia, where we merged our creative vision with their extensive experience in surface design. We aimed to challenge some conventional limits of suspended furniture design, and the name itself evokes this bold technical and conceptual endeavor.

Starting from the idea of synergistically merging functionality and aesthetics, we utilized dedicated extrusions for the fixing and hidden electrification system, ensuring a practical yet elegant solution. The contrast between the solidity of wood and the thinness of the metal sheets was maximized, creating a unique visual effect.

The wall-mounting system with integrated LED gives Gravity unparalleled versatility, allowing users to customize dimensions and finishes to perfectly fit their environment. Ultimately, Gravity represents not only a piece of furniture but a personalized design experience.

Last but not least, we considered the aspect of creating a product that could be assembled and disassembled countless times to meet the needs of potential life changes.
