MILAN DESIGN WEEK 2013: Tofu armchair by Leonardo Talarico

Easychair made of Tofu by Leonardo Talarico.
TOFU is the provocative armchair by Leonardo Talarico.  As its name suggests, this piece of furniture is entirely made out of Tofu, one of the most nutrient, soft and ancient aliment. Through a dehydration process and subsequent thermal shock, tofu gains important mechanical properties and it can be used as a structural material. The armchair is treated with a natural colour that is able to change shades of colour based on the acidity of the material.

RUNWAY: gorgeous evening gowns by Pavoni

Gorgeous evening dresses with refinement and grace, designed by Pavoni. Superior fabrics, impeccable craftsmanship and incomparable design. For more information please have a look at the enclosed link below.
About the designers:
As the unique & exquisite peacock struts itself with pride, elegance and pure iconic beauty, so does the woman who wears PAVONI. PAVONI is an exciting new luxury fashion house that caters to women with an inspired sense of taste, as well as an appreciation for superior fabrics, impeccable craftsmanship and incomparable design. Co-founders Gianni Falcone & Mike Derderian chose the peacock, which has long been recognized as the embodiment and symbol of elegance, to be the inspiration for the line.

The designers aimed to create a line that would distinguish itself as the epitome of sophistication- a line that embodies everything a woman should be; delicate yet strong, opulent yet dignified. The PAVONI muse is a woman who while being tasteful, does not lack the confidence and desire to make a statement when entering a room, a woman who appreciates standing out from the crowd but who does so with refinement and grace. No expense is spared when it comes to fabrics and craftsmanship; as the goal is to offer haute couture artistry, style and quality.

PAVONI has quickly become one of the most inspired luxury labels on the market today. Their vision of classic traditional elegance fused with a contemporary edge was an instant hit. After only four seasons PAVONI has already garnered international acclaim, proven itself a fierce competitor amongst some of the biggest names in the industry, and has overnight become a celebrity favorite.
