A pioneer of Italian design and craftsmanship in the world, Turri continues to carve its path of enhancing the lifestyle and living through sophisticated furniture designs. With the needs of the market and the expectations of the new generations at the heart of its design process, each new product pushes the boundaries of contemporary design to suit the cosmopolitan world. Turri's new dining room elements and office proposals join the living room and bedroom proposals of its Blues collection. Artisan tradition and attention to detail return to these recent developments of the Blues collection, which was first established in 2020 with a selection of designer sofas from Giuseppe Viganò's Studio Viganò.
The dining novelties include the Blues table, chair, sideboard, and vitrine. Turri's design embodies the Blues music of the west. The Blues table, with its graphic symbol similar to a parenthesis, marks a horizontal division of space reminiscent of Blues notes. The table's base evokes wings, which act as aesthetic and functional support to the top, all in an elegant game of lines. Finally, a sophisticated metallic detail creates a focal point and emphasises the table design's beautiful symmetry. The top features rounded corners and circular, light lines, similar to the distinguishing features of previous products in the collection. The rounded profile is enriched along the perimeter with the same metallic detail seen in the table’s base. The Blues table can be customised to suit any interior, with a choice of walnut or glossy lacquered wood for the base and wood or marble finishes for the top.
Turri’s brand identity is instantly recognisable in the new Blues chair. The chair design is an image of a sculptural object in which a sinuous line unites the backrest and armrest in a single gesture. The backrest embraces the seat, while the legs rush toward that gesture, lending uniqueness and lightness to the entire design. Here, the combination of wood and metal, typical of the collection, is also evident. The chair, one of the cornerstones of the collection, commands attention by defining the style of a highly fashionable and social area of the home.
The use of replicated patterns, as Blues music teaches, manifests in the elegance and versatility of the Blues sideboard, made of walnut wood, with a wooden or marble top and a metal profile. The materials used contribute to the product’s strength – both in terms of the firmness of its structure and the uniqueness of its design. Well-suited to daily domestic needs, this practical and innovative sideboard comes with four doors and a drawer, accented by quintessential T-shaped handles. The top, covered in marble or wood, is a surface ready to accommodate accessories as well as design objects.
The living area was not quite complete before the creation of another element: the Blues vitrine. In this cabinet, the lightness of the glass sides meets the solidity of the drawers with metal edges which, though fixed to the bottom, seem almost to float. Supported by slender legs typical of the Blues collection, the structure appears even lighter – and as dainty as a fine jewel. Its linear appearance, easily adaptable to any type of space or furniture, makes the Blues Vitrine perfect for any living area. By customising the Blues sideboard and vitrine with contemporary materials, one can refresh these heritage pieces of Italian furniture, giving them a new life in the modern home.
A short step from table and chair to desk and executive chair leads to the creation of the office furnishings. The same concept of ergonomic comfort at the heart of the dining area applies to the office area. The new proposals of the Blues collection, designed by Giuseppe Viganò, transform the office into an innovative and stimulating space, striking a balance between creativity and productivity. This new collection, therefore, reflects the spirit of the Turri brand.
The new Blues executive desk stands out for its dynamism and sinuosity, available in wood and leather versions, and incorporates the soft shapes typical of the Blues collection. This strong visual impact of the wooden furniture is emphasised by the presence of two inclined side drawers. As if moved by a blues rhythm, the drawers support the table top that descends to create a closure at the front, in a perfect combination of elegance and practicality.
Accompanying the desk, the Blues executive chair and its curvy and harmonious features reinterpret the refined shapes of the 1950s office workstations into a modern style. Comfortable and welcoming, like a hug: with a curved backrest, it envelops soft padding and invites you to feel at ease at work. The combination of the five-star steel base, the wheels that facilitate movement, and the ability to raise and recline the backrest all contribute to a feeling of complete relaxation. The armchair is available, both in the executive version with the high backrest and in the visitor version, which is lower and without a headrest.
A balanced and stimulating professional place has positive implications on the quality of the work carried out and the everyday life. Feeling good in a work environment is essential to carry out the tasks, and maximise productivity. All this acquires even more value when it comes to executive offices where company management convenes. For the practical needs that characterise the operational spaces, the Blues executive armchair and desk alternate aesthetic needs that communicate authority and trust, qualities we expect from managers invited to experience that space in person. Executive offices are important places for every business. They are the settings for meetings that involve decision-making. The new Blues elements naturally connect professionalism to the modernity of these spaces.
