April 1987: during the salone internazionale del mobile, Naos introduces an unusual collection of furnishings "in motion" capturing and surprising the attention of the visitors. Mario Morbidelli, the projects innovator, together with some of the most prestigious firms of italian design. The project is made of dining tables, chairs, wall units and case goods characterized by a unique great theme: motion.

Unusual synchronized mechanisms allow for the rotation of glass tops, the raising and lowering, lengthening and shortening of surfaces moving away and towards each other. All is motion, all is change, all is transformation.

Naos is pleased to exhibit during the Milan International Furniture Fair 2008, a range of products perfectly expressing the philosophy that the company has been following since its foundation:

As to accessories, Denis Santachiara has designed a new home-theatre, Turandot, where the rigour of lines combines with and excellent functionality of use that allows to modulate the orientation of the screen up to 30°.

As to dining tables, Artů is certainly the most unusual object. The design is by Donato D'urbino and Paolo Lomazzi. Thanks to the synchronized movement of the wings, easily transforms the round top in console. The function of the table radically changes therefore: from central and protagonist element of the living space, it can be easily moved and placed close to the wall, where it can be used as a console.

Studied to be used in small spaces and to satisfy the contemporary trend, Cyrano, designed by Yoshiharu Hatano is the dining table allowing you to easily obtain additional table seats even in small places. It is in fact equipped with an extension that widen the top of 50 cm to comfortably welcome two more guests.

Minosse - always designed by Yoshiharu Hatano -, it represents the proposal of an extremely peculiar design exalted by its sculptural support, nevertheless always offering the possibility to extend its surface of 80 cm.

As to cocktail tables, designed by Donato D'urbino and Paolo Lomazzi, the suggestion is to "dress" your own living space with a "jewel accessory". For example Holly, a side table that immediately gives the idea of a bracelet, with its mirror steel surfaces.

Synchronism and movement of tops are anyway the basic proposals that can be appreciated also in the two cocktail tables Ringo & Starr and Valzer - always by D'urbino-Lomazzi -, that recall the classic shapes and structures of contemporary design in their peculiar trestlework supports.
