MILLA & MILLI  (Croatia)

The whole "Edge" collection is based on a dialogue between opposites. On the one hand, the humanity and softness of the curved lines of the tablets, and on the other, the rigidity, minimalism and architectural feel of the legs. This juxtaposition creates a visual tension within the pieces that makes them very recognizable and iconic.

The collection is also very much based on the logic of the connection between the horizontal and vertical elements of the pieces. A simple graphic and almost timeless detail that makes the difference and visually highlights the connection and the difference between the two types of elements. It gives a real nobility to the connections.

Another key element of the collection is the difference, the contrast between the different elements in the pieces is also visually highlighted by the different finishes used on the legs and top. The vertical elements, legs and columns, are sanded very deeply, giving them a very rough and matte texture, while the horizontal elements, the tabletops, are smooth and polished. Although the same solid oak is used throughout the collection, the pieces appear to be made of two different materials. The roughness of the legs makes them look almost as if they were made of a porous stone such as lava stone or wood charcoal.

These pieces can be seen as a capsule collection with a common identity, but also with enough diversity to make them rich and interesting on their own.
