Crystal

PEARSON LLOYD | 2011

Oblique corners reminding of ancient obelisk shapes, creating an architectural play of light and shadow. Full volumes seem to float above the floor, on hidden base. Crystal is a collection of sofas and armchairs away from ordinary standards and clichés which gives birth to a suspended and dynamic effect with no need of aesthetical devices. It’s just about smart and absolute simplicity.

The design is Italian, the rest is production. And in Italy, design companies bear the names of the families that founded the brands. Like Tacchini, created in 1965 by Antonio, when production, too, was almost entirely Italian, and the most poetic and soul-stirring passages in the story of design were written. Naturally in time the children become the heirs, and the new founders, in a rationale of continuous updating and redefinition of the underlying idea, and that is what is actually handed down. Equally naturally, those who frequent the family become a part of it: team members, consultants, suppliers, employers, workers and clients.

Pearson Lloyd is one of the leading names in contemporary British design, and this multidisciplinary studio works in a wide range of sectors: from furnishing to public spaces to brand development. Established by Luke Pearson and Tom Lloyd in 1997, the studio has received numerous acknowledgements and accolades in both Europe and the United States. The British design duo write regularly for major design magazines, as well as acting as “visiting lecturers” at the École Cantonale d’Art in Lausanne.
