Roberto Tapinassi, Maurizio Manzoni / Modulor / 2009 / by DEMA 
At Salone del Mobile in Milan, Dema is presenting its Modulor System. Confirming a continuing trend, Dema is again cooperating with the renowned designers Roberto Tapinassi and Maurizio Manzoni, already represented in several instances in the company’s catalogue and authors of this new and distinctly high-profile project. Modulor relies on a special quilting technique which emphasizes the softness of materials and the experience of touch, and finds aesthetic accomplishment in its references to the design from the Seventies and the Eighties. The evoking of the recent past in interior design is updated to contemporary styles through the starkness of shapes and lines, a distinct taste for proportions and the independence of each element within the whole. The modularity of the system is articulated in separate components, both single-standing and joined through a series of seams which also provide the basic structure. Modulor may be further customized through the addition of tailored coffee-tables.
