Porro @ Interior Mebel Kiev


From 5th to 9th February Porro took part in Interior Mebel Kiev, the most prestigious fair in Ukraine dedicated to design and interior decoration. The booth, realized in collaboration with Sfera Design shop, is a walk through architectural systems and refined collections, in which Porro gradually reveals its "idea of home”: a world of purity that bridges the gap between two worlds – the industry and handicraft –while unveiling the incredible expertise and continuous technological innovation that characterize the brand at a worldwide level.

In the dining room, the Materic table designed by Piero Lissoni enchants for the round verde rameggiato marble top with a built-in rotating tray and the black-stained ash base, surrounded by the French-styled armchairs Frank by Piero Lissoni in olive green velvet, with brass-painted metal legs that gain momentum thanks to their variable circular section. On the wall, the Gap bookcases in a vibrant rosso antico designed by Carlo Tamborini act as a strong aesthetic element and at the same time as a light source, thanks to the built-in LED lighting. Closed with glass doors featuring an iron profile, Ex-Libris by Piero Lissoni is a self-standing glass cabinet with a precious look-and-feel, conceived to store and display the collection of glasses and plates.

In the bedroom, the Makura bed by Piero Lissoni in dark green velvet, slightly suspended from the ground, has a welcoming and inviting shape thanks to its sinuous and enveloping headboard and to the presence of comfortable removable cushions. The cosy scene is completed by the Boxes bedside tables and chest of drawers in the white lacquered version, and the Reflection mirror, a classic by Piero Lissoni.
The path ends in the wardrobe, where clothes are stored and the space becomes a secret room at home. The Storage Dressing Room designed by Piero Lissoni + Porro Research Center is the main protagonist, presented with enlightened glass shelves and the square section profile 25x25mm, which makes the frame look even lighter by creating an airy feeling and enlarging the space. The fittings are in the eucalipto melamine finish, elegant and warm finishing, whilte the back panels are covered in light blue fabric, for a decorative and sophisticated effect. The cherry on the top is the Storage Shoe rack with bright inclined shelves and a self-standing Storage Air wardrobe with smoke glass doors.

A twist of colour is provided by the Offshore containers designed by Piero Lissoni, presented with exteriors in royal blue open-pore stained ash wood and interiors in natural maple, in the 3-drawer version designed for the needs of the sleeping area. Relaxation is served by daybed Traveller by GamFratesi, with side backrests where a “saddle effect” saddle leather is stretched on, to contemplate our own collection of clothes.
