Paola Lenti at Salone

Milan Design Week saw Paola Lenti looking to the future while celebrating the past. Lenti considers 2023 to be a pivotal year: on the one hand, it represents a moment for careful consideration of what has been accomplished in the past, and on the other, it reveals the starting point for a new, strong creative drive towards the future. 

Looking to the future Paola Lenti has launched its new space in Milan. This redevelopment and reconstruction of an abandoned urban space is to create a centre for innovation that is in open dialogue with the city. The architectural complex, initially developed between the mid- 1800s and the 1960s recovers and returns an entire urban area to the district as along with the exhibition areas for both Paola Lenti indoor and outdoor collections, the project includes a restaurant, a small Hotel de Charme with a spa, a landscape architect’s office, and an art gallery.

Paola Lenti is also celebrating 25 years of collaboration with Francesco Rota, the designer with whom the company began its journey into the furniture world with their first indoor seating pieces in 1998. Five years later, at Fuorisalone 2003, the company officially launched their outdoor furniture, again with Francesco Rota. Paola Lenti marks these important milestones of her career with the re-edition of two of her most iconic seating pieces designed by the Milanese designer, Linea and Wave.

As always the Paola Lenti collection is filled with colour, surprising and innovative textures and surfaces and a joyous expression throughout.
