Let’s have a look into the novelties that this brand brought up during this event as well as the innovations behind these wonderful new products.

For their 2019 collection presented this year at Salone del Mobile 2019, Porro has decided to innovate by creating a bridge between the two worlds: industrial and artisan. They did this by combining rationality and imagination, technological avant-garde and manual finishing. As a helping guide to this new concept by the brand is Piero Lissoni who has been designer and art director of Porro since 1987, as well as the creator and principal interpreter of the brand’s style.
For this set of products unveiled at iSaloni 2019, Piero Lissoni decided to imagine the 2019 Porro home in an open way. One in which walls disappear and the furnishings become architecture. We have our first example with the System bookcases that allow the owners a lot more flexibility when it comes to leaving an empty space that is almost contemplative.
Another top highlight debut from Porro comes from the small Lullaby lounge chair. This is a good example of a chair that evokes the comfort and the act of cradling a baby. The Lullaby chair also has some sophisticated details behind its apparent simplicity: among them the small supporting foot in champagne painted metal, its ash solid structure and the covering in soft light blue fabric.
There’s also the Modern container system which has been freed from the constraints of modular construction and presents itself as a good example of how elegance rhymes with looseness. This set is also the perfect example of some mixing and matching of one’s own preferred colours and materials, such as the new vibrant Arancio Zucca lacquer which made its debut 2019. This new concept by Porro has achieved solutions that are different and personal each time and manage to pass as one among many examples of Piero Lissoni’s talent for design.

There are many existing products that have suffered a transformation and a new creation. Among them, we can point to the new oval version of the Jeff table by Gabriele and Oscar Buratti, the larger size of the Kite Sofa couch by GamFratesi as well as the Frank chair by Piero Lissoni. All of these bestsellers have been reimagined and readopted with a couple of new interesting features.
