A chat with the team at Sandrini Architecture

Why DFN?

We asked Sandrini Architecture which are the factors that make collaborating with DFN so exciting and stimulating. During the last edition of the Salone del Mobile, Sandrini created the landscape design for the exhibition of the new luxury outdoor furniture by Samuele Mazza, in partnership with DFN. The collaboration was fruitful and the high standards of creativity, research and know-how that are unique of DFN were of great inspiration to the team.

This year collaboration

When telling us what they expect from this year’s partnership with DFN, Sandrini Architecture said:

Designing landscapes means designing an environment that is beautiful, efficient and that harmoniously fits in its setting, all while addressing the client’s needs, and satisfying their expectations and dreams.

With this collaboration we want to implement knew knowledge as to improve our ability to integrate all aspects of landscape design such as lighting design, new irrigation systems, furniture and accessories to match.”

What will we see at the Salone del Mobile 2018?

For this year, Sandrini Architecture will be treated to unique scenic designs, where creativity, architecture, science and natural beauty combine to create unexpected, breathtaking environments that will become authentic experiences for the visitors to live and enjoy.

A little about the new Samuele Mazza furniture line – contemporary glam

Samuele Mazza’s new furniture line tells a story of glamour and elegance, but in a modern, contemporary way. A careful choice of materials is combined to the brand’s unique style and its renowned haute-couture craftsmanship and attention to detail.

The outstanding quality of his pieces resulted this year also in a new line of kitchen furniture for outdoors characterized by unusual finishes such as touches of gold and metallic tones, which are one of this season’s top trends. Electrical appliances are finished in steel, and boost the most advanced technology.

The dazzling design and high-efficiency abilities of these kitchens make them precious pieces which partner wonderfully with all the other furnitures by Samuele Mazza and the new conservatory by La Casa dei Limoni, a DFN brand.

The structure of the conservatory is completely made out of iron and glass, where the time-honoured materials mix with the best technology create a luxurious, emotional environment that is comfortable throughout the year and that makes a classic winter garden new and modern.

We are excited for this collaborations! Where can the results be found?
