Gianfranco Ferré Home and the creative use of glass

Industrial style and cosy mood. Gianfranco Ferré Home’s 2024 collection focuses on contrasts, exploring the harmony between seemingly opposing concepts.

The metropolitan aesthetic typical of the brand can be found in industrial lines with metal elements, combined with organic shapes and soft fabrics to add depth and a sense of hospitality. The neutral, almost impalpable colour palette makes the whole look sophisticated and versatile, with delicate shades of grey, white and wood enlivened by green, in an acid and deep tone, with a saturation that is not too intense.

Livening up the collection are sculptural seats with retro charm, including the Haaga sofa and the Brygge armchair, characterised by contemporary design and flowing lines. Like works of modern art creatively responding to the desire to relax, Brygge seats are characterised by a shape reminiscent of the fingers of a hand, ready to welcome and cradle. Original and sophisticated, the Kamppi armchairs and the Islington chaise longue also reflect the same vintage and industrial mood, enhanced in this case by the chrome-finished profiles, which fit harmoniously into spaces adding an aura of modernity and comfort. The softness and prominence of the seating creates a striking contrast to the simplicity of the Japandi-style furniture, made of Canaletto walnut and characterised by minimalist lines. Emblematic for its simple and cosy aesthetics is the Kaunas sofa, composed of linear and modular modules, raised from the floor thanks to solid wood feet in Canaletto walnut.

Within the collection, the creative use of glass introduces the theme of presence and absence, further enhancing the balance between rigour and softness that characterises the entire proposal. Exemplary in this sense are the Havnen small tables, characterised by an opaque glass top and cylindrical base with leather upholstery, and the Veil small tables, composed of vertical glass plates joined together by the presence of metal buttons.
