GETTING LOST IN EUDOSSIA
On the occasion of the Fuorisalone 2019, Saba collaborates again with the Sardinian designer, Antonio Marras, who presents the project “Perdersi a Eudossia” in his Milanese atelier. The project is inspired by the book Invisible Cities by Italo Calvino.
There are 12 cities in NonostanteMarras and to obtain their keys you have to enter the room with maps and try to decipher the signs, clues, references, indications and codes. One enters the room in complete silence with soft steps. You travel with thought: it’s the fastest way.
The seating is diverse: big, small, multi-forms, multi-functional, rectangular, square, round, with tubed and squared cushions. They are in colours of the city of joy and some are in melancholic hues. There are prints in abundance: jacquards, damasks, florals, checks, polka dots and pied-de-poule - put together in complementary and contrasting combinations.
Voyage, Limes New, Baby Geo… The very names of the new collection that Saba presents at NonostanteMarras are an invitation to go on a journey beyond the conventions of predefined space. Saba and Marras take you through a journey around the very concept of living, a free territory in which we are engaged in a continuous dialogue.
Part of the collection features a limited edition “couture” collection of sofas and armchairs made from meticulous tailoring techniques using the designer’s exquisite textiles archive and two prints created exclusively for Saba and printed on eco-fur.
