The PAD London presentation features iconic furniture and lighting pieces by Salvagni, including a new edition of the Spider chandelier in a striking Blue de Savoie, and the Santiago sofa upholstered in a handwoven Toyine Sellers fabric. A pair of Gae chairs, with their oversized hand-engraved bronze feet, sit in front of Fibula, an eye-catching coffee table that reveals Salvagni’s original approach to design and unique mastery of noble materials. Maasai, a new modular shelving system designed especially for the fair and produced in wood and bronze, takes centre stage. Whilst its structural elements clearly reference the systems devised by mid-century practitioners such as Franco Albini and Ico Parisi, the shelf’s vertical suspension, with its elongated form, alludes to the weapons of Maasai warriors, hence it name, whilst the decorative bronze elements are reminiscent of tribal jewellery.
