Sollos present their exquisite international collection at the “Good News from Brazil” exhibition during the traditional Milan Design Week
The collection consists of consolidated, tested and approved Sollos / Jader Almeida products, such as the classic Bossa and Easy chairs and the Linna and Mirah armchairs, as well as the recent Clad collection, made up of chairs and armchair in one fluid line based on the Cycladic art.
In addition to the extensive range of furniture, lamps and accessories signed by the designer, complete the elegant collection.
The exhibition will take place on Via Giuseppe Sacchi 5, in Brera, an area which is known by the concentration of events, galleries and restaurants, in a 450 m² gallery with the project and the curatorship by Jader Almeida, just as the newly launched showrooms in Recife and Miami, where the lightness and the delicate and balanced choice of the materials are added to the commitment to good design.
With subtlety and no commercial aggressiveness, the gallery will be identified with a totem in tango color, which can be seen by visitors from any point of view.
In the project, the upper floor has neutral colors and the products are arranged so that they generate different interpretations, stimulating the senses and perception.
In the lower atmosphere, a great display will surround a table with organic shape, and it hold individual pieces that can be observed from all angles. Moreover, there will be also a large panel with images and products clipping which will give a subtle dimension of Sollos and Jader Almeida.
“I have always told people about design, independent of regionalism or nationality. I like the idea that good design communicates in all languages.
Therefore, I believe that the consequence of a consistent work and which contains language in itself, transcends borders naturally”, Jader Almeida, designer and creative director of Sollos asserts.
