LUMINASTA event: Living Divani products reinterpreted by a young artist in Como

On June 25th, there was an event in Como, Italy called LuminASTA.  Living Divani contributed to the LuminASTA event by supplying some of their furniture pieces for the auction.

The cultural association Luminanda promoted a unique event, in which they auctioned off chairs designed by Piero Lissoni, Piergiorgio Cazzaniga and Harry & Camila for Living Divani.  The products chosen were reinterpreted by local artist Gunza and creative tailors Sarta de qua Sarta de là. The proceeds from the event were given to the Artificio project, which aims to create a space for artistic research and production in the Como area.

Participation in this benevolent initiative further confirms Living Divani's active role within the local community.

DZINE, a high-end interior design store at 128 Utah St. in SoMa, is now carrying a new bathtub made by Italian-based manufacturer Boffi. The Iceland Bathtub, which was designed by Piero Lissoni, is a monoblock tub in white Cristal Plant with waste-drain, siphon and overflow. It's 71.25 inches in length, 35.5 inches wide and 18 inches in height.

Each of the tub's fittings is in chromium plated brass.

Cardenio Petrucci, DZINE's owner, said the tub's varying dimensions are what make the tub unique.

"It goes from thin in the center and then gets wider around," he said. "In my opinion, the beauty of the tub is its shape, which is beautiful, and the difference in thickness all around the edges."

The Iceland Bathtub is priced at $12,870.
