Il Loft – Italian designs that will amaze you.

   |   In Designer Furniture Collections, Designer Spotlight, Dining Rooms   |   19 September 2016, 12.52   |   comments: 0

The world as a whole is the marketplace addressed by Il Loft, the company that Giorgio Saporiti created in 1994 after decades spent working as co-owner and Art Director of Saporiti Italia and after 15 years of collaborations with Ottavio Missoni in the development of stages for catwalks and textile-related products such as carpets and tapestries.

The success that this brand has been able to enjoy stems directly from the guarantee of quality that it is able to provide to its audience through the design, development and production of tailored and rigorously made in Italy solutions.
All furniture, complements and decors by Il Loft are first born into Giorgio Saporiti’s creative mind and are developed and produced in his Gallarate factory, West of Milan. Here, a team of specialized craftsmen works wood, steel, plastics. Here, skilled fabric experts weave, color, couple fabrics and cover the polyurethane or Dacron padded seats. And it is again here that, after the Maestro has completed the design phase, teams of engineers and interior designers leave heading for the States, Russia, the Middle East and the many locations in Europe in which enlightened customers have requested that very particular living concept – Il Loft branded – that has made the company well known around the world.

The real passion and love for color that has always characterized Giorgio Saporiti’s work, together with the essential lines of his design and with the guarantee of a 100% Made in Italy craft-based production make Il Loft the perfect herald of Italian design around the world.

The Quiller collection designed by Uto Balmoral consists of five elements: a bookcase, a console, a mirror, a low-table and a side-table. All furnishings are made of high thickness glass slabs processed with the chamfering technique, which rounds off the corners through a tilted cut. A further detail -typical of Tonelli design tradition- is represented by the hand-bonding of glass, strongly emphasized in this collection to remember the history and the craftsmanship of the company.

The Quiller collection stand out for its lightness and versatility: the products are designed for both residential and work environments and could be personalized for the customer needs. For example, both the console and the side-table may be complemented with a tray in solid walnut canaletto wood or mat white MDF, the bookcase can be used against a wall or also freestanding and the low-table is available in square or rectangular shape.

Tonelli has continued to experiment whilst remaining faithful to its origins, resulting in a perfect balance between shape and technique. The in-house glass factory and state of the art machinery have allowed the company to achieve an optimal production capacity, both in terms of turnaround time and of the quality of tailor-made products.
