Contemporary lifestyles are shaped by a yearning for individual expression. And it was exactly this mindset that gave rise to a series of iconic classics more than half a century ago. Like Contessa 1956, one of the first Wittmann products to generate serious attention on the international stage. In 2020 this striking stand-alone armchair will be back at the Cologne furniture show for the first time, drawing more admiring glances than ever with its precisely executed contours and clear formal language.
The interiors of 2020 are all about warmth and cosiness: fine brass, warm woods and luxurious stone come together in joyful abandon with sensual materials such as velvet and leather. With characteristic charm, functionality disguises itself as smart living. At Wittmann, this means that pieces of furniture effortlessly enrich people’s everyday lives with beautiful yet practical details. This is demonstrated with particular ingenuity by the versatile group of elements that make up Playtime by Soda Designers.
We have the honour of working with designers that share our passion for handcraftsmanship. Sebastian Herkner is one such example, as is Luca Nichetto, whose design for Wittmann conveys a strong sense of individuality, aesthetics and unfettered joy in creating something truly special: fresh and unusually elegant, the Paradise Bird collection gives expression to the attitude to life we want to adopt in 2020 and retain for many years to come.
