As a split-level space, this fresh new kid on the block is filled with premium brands, rejuvenating one of the most iconic and remembered buildings in Claremont.
The first floor is dedicated to ranges from iconic and world leading brands such as The Republic of Fritz Hansen, Kettal, Nanimarquina , Foscarini, BD Barcelona, Atelier Areti – to name just a few. The split-level floor is showcases the latest ranges from edgy design label Diesel’s ‘Successful Living’ collection and avant-garde Italian furniture giant Moroso.
Art director and design icon Patrizia Moroso from Moroso will be a special guest of honour for an invitation only ‘Apretivo hour’ at the end of what will be an epic opening day at CWID.
Mobilia will be bringing the world’s best design straight out of Europe – you don’t need to fly anywhere to be in tune with what is happening right now in the design world – it’s happening right here at Contemporary Wine In Design in Perth.
Here’s just a taste of some of the latest and greatest Mobilia’s top-end curators are bringing to the West Coast:
The Lattice Rug
The Lattice collection springs from the organic imagination of the Bouroullec brothers. The basic pattern, rhythmically reproduced, gives rise to a harmonic succession of colours. Balance, proportion and irregularity are the key elements in the controlled disorder that transforms Lattice into a unique creation.
Based between London and Groningen in the Netherlands, the Atelier Areti light creates beautiful lighting in close collaboration with master craftsmen and manufactures in Germany and Sweden. Formed in 2008 by sisters Gwendolyn and Guillane Kerschbaumer, Atelier Areti was born after years spent at architecture and design offices around the world.
Mobilia will be present the ‘Setting the Elegance’ collection by Moroso at CWID. The range is an experiment with textile partners Kvadrat and Rubeli, which have supplied the covered for the special editions of Moroso’s seating designs. The collection’s name, Setting the Elegance, refers to what goes on back-stage at a fashion show as the styles are prepared for the runway in order to impress and arouse emotions among the audience.
Diesel ‘Successful Living’
Moroso and Foscarini has collaborated with clothing brand Diesel to create ‘Successful Living’, a collection of products with a relaxed and comfortable mood which draws inspiration from an informal lifestyle concept. “We worked with the Diesel creative team, headed by it’s Creative Director Wilbert Das, to develop an interesting and alternative collection idea which was to represent two different yet coexisting aspects of certain contemporary trends: one which is darker in tone, inspired by the underground world and with a more aggressive and enigmatic aesthetic, and the other lighter, inspired by nature and a visual radiance, with soft and welcoming shapes”, explained Patrizia Moroso who always follows all the phases of every design project.
The launch of Mobilia’s first curtain collection by renowned British / Indian design duo Doshi Levien for Kvadrat. Their latest plays with light, shape and layers – an absolute CWID exclusive.
Kettal New Colours and Terrain Fabrics
Garden and Forest, Sky and Water, Earth and Stone. The Terrain range, designed by Doshi Levien for Kettal, channel the texture of different natural landscapes.
Mobilia, for the first time in Western Australia, has brought the complete offering of The Republic of Fritz Hansen’s latest Objects line. Objects is a unique collection of design items that reflects our passion for good design with a purpose. Like Fritz Hansen furniture, Objects is a statement that can add a touch of Nordic lifestyle and playfulness to your home. Objects will never dominate but simply complement your space.
Also showing will be design great Patricia Urquiola’s latest collection for Kettal, the Mesh collection, which is a family of outdoor furniture that expresses textural and visual contrasts. Drawing formal influences from architectural facades, the Spanish designer has employed a mix of industrial and natural materials, hard and soft, solid and perforated surfaces to realise the sofa and table pieces.
