Garde’s New Collection at Milan Design Week 2008

Garde chooses again the Fuori Salone in Zona Tortona to present its new furniture collection “Nagomi”.

For its third consecutive year of participation, Garde inaugurates on the international scene an exclusive line of furniture that represents an innovative vision of the relationship between Man and Nature and the socio-psychological scenario that is created by this connection.

Memories of a past where Man found time to let himself be absorbed by the delicate colors of a sunrise, by the pearl-like iridescent rays of the early morning sun, by the smell of the tall hinoki* trees, or by the sparkling ring of the furin** that sway in the summer breeze. Veiled memories of a warm nostalgia that bring the mind back to a dimension where Man, cradled in the arms of Mother Nature, found peace and serenity. This is, or better...WAS, “Nagomi”.

21st century: daily life runs on high speed tracks. The pace of modern lifestyle thrusts and forces us to run continuously, straining us to constantly minimize dead time. Never has the old cliche “time is money” ever been such a clear and coherent mirror of reality. This causes Modern Man to take advantage of the few moments of free time to search for a renewed contact with Nature, to escape the intensity of daily life and rediscover a dimension of peace and interior balance.

This is the scenario where Garde launches its new collection “NAGOMI”: a proposal of reinterpretation of the traditional contact with Nature in a new refreshing “cool-modern” style. Through its exclusive selection of interior furnishings, Garde wants to emphasize the necessity of reuniting with Nature in completely new ways. Garde does not imagine Man returning to Nature overwhelmed and defeated by the frenzy of every day life. Garde’s vision is in fact of a strong, proud Man who doesn’t “go towards” Nature but instead recalls it back to himself. A Man not prepared to admit his dependence on time and on natural forces. A Man who creates himself, and who adapts his surroundings to himself by employing Nature into spaces he defines.

The Nagomi Collection therefore embodies elements of Nature into a design with modern lines and essential shapes. Elements in Nature such as Water, whose force is unleased erratically, are captured in shapes with a soft and delicate design. Others are enclosed in containers that guide their movements. Nature therefore becomes “domesticated” but it nevertheless represents Mother Nature, and by reconnecting with Her, Man feels comforted. (For example, the EGU Chair’s rounded shape welcomes with an embrace, and resembles the shape of an egg, allegorically recalling the origin of life, a mother’s womb in which Man was protected and safe.) Synthetic, innovative and modern materials are used to reproduce naturalistic forms and also become a metaphor for this process of subjection that Man exerts on the surrounding environment: Nature, although respected in its shapes, is violated in its substance; Nature is sewn onto Man and therefore it traces his figure. When natural materials are used, the shape becomes stylised and modern in order to maintain balance and to allow Man to use natural elements within controllable limits. Garde proposes a “cerebral nature”, an amalgamate where Nature’s warm passion and the “cool-modern” style of our century can coexist in perfect balance.

* HINOKI: Japanese cypress trees with an aromatic wood. The scented wood is also used to make hot springs’ basins.
** FURIN: Typical Japanese wind chimes made in glass, ceramic or metal. When exposed to wind, they emit an acute ring.
