From Matter to Design” started off a series of initiatives organised by EMU and dedicated both to architects and designers and to the world of culture and art. The aim will be to focus on the identity of a leading Made in Italy company and historical protagonist in the introduction of design in the outdoor sector. This first meeting saw Giulio Iacchetti and Christophe Pillet in dialogue about the transformation of the metal material into furniture elements that become part of our living. A rich contamination of ideas, an interweaving of experiences that has ranged from creativity to production. Giulio Iacchetti, an expert in industrial design, addressed the importance that metalworking has had for our culture, while Christophe Pillet testified to his creative experience alongside EMU, explaining what it means for him to work on the design and planning of an object in which the metal core is the very heart of the execution.
Thanks to its know-how in working with metal, a 100% recyclable material, EMU has always distinguished itself as a manufacturer of high-quality, entirely Made in Italy outdoor furniture, capable of enhancing every residential and contract style and environment. A point of reference for design professionals, EMU is constantly engaged in technological research to create sustainable and design-led collections. A uniqueness of expertise that makes it a reliable partner for the community sector.
“From Matter to Design” was held on Thursday 30 November, at 5.30 p.m., at EMU, Corso Monforte 50, Milan. A space, the one in Milan, of over 500 square metres in which to discover the vast range of furnishings for the dining, living and relaxation areas, equipped with a Materioteca, a veritable exhibition archive, which offers customers, architects and designers the opportunity to touch materials, fabrics and colours and appreciate their different characteristics.
Having already been a solidarity partner for two years, EMU is back to participate in the Pink Tie Ball, a Charity Gala organised by Susan G. Komen Italia and which has already reached its 14th instalment. The project’s aim is as always the health of women, with its traditional focus being the fight against breast cancer. This year, EMU elected to offer the generous guests and patrons of the Pink Tie Ball its Como collection, design by Angeletti-Ruzza, in a precious composition consisting of one Coffee Table and two Armchairs in black coating, enriched by decorative Cushions in a shade of coral pink aimed at harmonising with the event’s atmosphere.
