Agave draws inspiration from the sinuous shapes of the leaves of the eponymous plant, overcomes the boundaries of outdoor and indoor and suggests unprecedented interpretations to enhance interiors.
The collection, which is the result of the partnership between Ethimo and Mattia Albicini, conveys new ideas to furnish contemporary interiors
Agave goes beyond its ‘natural setting’, the place for which it was conceived, and its concept takes on new meanings: created to be placed outdoor, the collection exalts the living environment with style and refinement. An outdoor furniture which is also at home indoors, to create a sophisticated and unexpected space.
The material remains the star of the project. The solid teak, crafted by Ethimo with exceptional artisanship and painstaking attention, together with the most innova-tive technology, is ‘transformed’ to form furnishings that recreate the soft move-ments, thin profiles and silky surface of agave. The almost ‘sartorial’ workmanship of the wood reaches its maximum expression in the lounge armchair and in the dining chair, where the continuous effect between.
An exceptional setting hosts the new look of Agave: the Hotel Parco dei Principi in Sorrento, one of the world's leading designer hotels, designed by Gio Ponti in 1962. Agave confirms the feeling of casual elegance and ‘exhibits’ its dual character through extraordinary spaces in this fascinating, unique place that celebrates luxury, art and design. The choice of this striking location is a reference to the exclusivity of the collection. The Hotel Parco dei Principi in Sorrento becomes a ‘stage set’ where the unique characteristics of Agave can be elevated and where the link between its design and the hotel's architecture can be emphasised.
