Porro: Family of containers Linea

Family of containers Linea

Explosion of color, pure energy, patchwork of inlaid surfaces in cellulose acetate: from an accurate research work in the Alessandro Mendini Archive conducted together with Fulvia and Elisa Mendini, to the rediscovery of pieces with a timeless design not yet edited, Porro brings to light 3 new surprising cupboards. An open cupboard with open module and drawer, a close cupboard with 2 hinged doors and a writing desk with drop-leaf writing desk and internal partition, raised on a dark base, they share full parts with geometric optical motifs juxtaposed with colored empty spaces. These 3 new objects, edited in a limited edition of 50 pieces each, speak of a free use, outside the standards and logics of industrial production, all to be imagined in everyday life.


Fulvia and Elisa Mendini Interview

Fulvia and Elisa Mendini tells about the genesis of the Linea collection designed by their father and manufactured by Porro. From their first experience together in 2014-15, where he had played with the absence of color, or actually with the color of the natural wood essences, to Linea: Lorenzo and Maria Porro tribute to Alessandro Mendini and the most important figure of his work, color.
