Catellani & Smith – The Time it Takes

“the time it takes”

A short movie dedicated to Enzo Catellani’s vision, in the unique working space where he creates his lamps.

A movie by Giorgio Oppici,
shot in 2014


In the occasion of Light+Building – the collection Lederam will be presented in its definitive version,
that has been perfected technically and pays great attention to the materials and finishes
but above all chooses unique color combinations.

Frankfurt, / March 30th – April 4th / hall 1.2 – stand C20

Casa della Luce: art, technology and design

8-13 April 2014 / via Ventura, 5 / Lambrate, Milano

Seven companies tell their story at
the Salone Internazionale del Mobile, 2014
when a new project for interiors begins at number 5 via Ventura in Milan -

The collaboration of Catellani & Smith, Adele-C,
Eclettis, Fiori di Latta, Italiana Cucine, Plinio il Giovane and Purho

The setting is a minimalist structure, inhabited by light,
where the contrast between indoors and outdoors disappears
in a rarefied harmony.

The setting contains the idea of a house as a living space.

There is no time and there are no fashions.
There is no room for banality or extravagance.

Every furnishing item is designed and produced in all its aspects.

What guides this design brand is equilibrium,
found through the research into materials, artisan workmanship,
the use of technology and respect for the environment
and this is synthesized in forms that create a vision,
as if lines were able to anticipate emotions.

On the two floors of the ideal apartment in via Ventura n.5,
one breathes the scent of infinity and of refined taste,
that can be summed up in three words: Made in Italy.
