That sartorial know-how that is history

 

 

Pininfarina and Snaidero present the Snaidero Ola25 Limited Edition at the Milan Furniture Fair to celebrate 25 years of partnership. Ola25 is a kitchen with unique stylistic and functional characteristics, of which a maximum of 84 individually crafted units will be produced, as a tribute to Pininfarina’s 84 years of activity.

Formal and functional excellence

 

 

Starting from the iconic design of the Ola20, Pininfarina and Snaidero have conceived an even more refined and exclusive product, tailor-made to the client’s desires. Three different versions will inspire the decisions of the design enthusiasts who choose this model.

The Audace version, inspired by the Sergio concept car, is a provocative, futuristic interpretation of modern space. The use of the colours red and black, and of materials like the carbon fibre used for the sculpted support of the island worktop, clearly have their roots in the automotive world. The Inedita version underlines the sensuality of the curves, the particular feature of the whole project, with a fluid, light and harmonious composition, underlined by the contrast between the champagne coloured doors and the polished black glass of the worktop.  The Classica version is a modern rereading of the original version, in which the distinctive elements, like the support of the island worktop and the profiles, are finished with lacquered bronze

Innovative solutions for the domestic space

The partnership was forged in 1989 from the encounter between the company Chairmen Sergio Pininfarina and Rino Snaidero, who shared a passion for beauty and technological innovation. From the start, the merger of the two brands aimed to combine the Pininfarina design heritage with Snaidero’s experience in kitchens to conceive innovative solutions for the domestic space. Ola, the first fruit of the partnership, had a strong architectural impact set off by cutting-edge technical solutions; it started the ball rolling and won the Chicago Athenaeum prize for architecture.

 

It was followed in subsequent years by projects that expressed a new stylistic language, combining formal and functional excellence. Viva, Idea, Acropolis and Venus are an expression of extensive research activities designed to imagine and develop space around man and his needs. In 2010, 20 years after their first product, the two brands launched Ola20, an extremely iconic project, which also won the Good Design Award from the Chicago Design Athenaeum Museum.
