Roxanne is another luxury and lustful creation from Sand & Birch: a flaming red-hot mouth is inviting you to sit and abandon yourself to day-dreams.Lie and rely on Roxanne’s curved lips.
Soft version in polyurethan and fabric, hard version in varnished polyurethane.
The Diamond sofa thought by Samanta Snidaro and Andrea Fino of Sand & Birch design studio is entirely realised in mirror-like aluminium. On the wide stripe 160 crystals of Swarovsky will be disposed creating images. The lamp on its side is a fluorescent or a led one.
The Diamond sofa was thought not only for sitting, but also as an object of very provocative design. It has been studied for entering houses and, at the same time, for inspiring pure luxury.
Sand & Birch is bringing forward a project in which the objects lose their proper primitive functions and acquire other meanings. In this way, the Diamond sofa becomes an expression of predominantly aesthetical value: from just a sofa it becomes a jewel.
The Diamond sofa is produced in numbered limited edition (100 sofas)
Dim: L 150, H 90 (190), P 100 cm
If you look at this chair, seating on it is as if you are going to take place on the lap of an elegantly long legged lady. I featured Sand and Birch earlier with their Velvet Sofa. They are Trendhunters (albeit with a typo in their port folio which is named: “Snadbirch”) like yours truly.
This bewitching velvet ribbon sofa – “Velvet” – is a spiral shaped sofa upholstered in a sensual and luxurious smooth velvet. Its wooden frame is covered with a thin layer of polyurethane.
“Velvet” is the latest work by Sand & Birch Luxury Design.
Designers: Andrea Fino and Samanta Snidaro
Sand & Birch Design Studio was founded in 2003 when Andrea Fino and Samanta Snidaro decided to join their different cultural backgrounds and experiences together for a unique project: to re-interpret the concept of furnishing and to bring other meanings, other senses and other lives to Objects.
The Diamond Sofa is an example of how this project has become reality by turning a sofa into a piece of jewellery without losing its original functions.
Andrea Fino has studied law and at present is working in the field of Communication for Government Institutions and has gained experience in Visual Communication for the realization of social events.
Samanta Snidaro has studied architecture in Italy and Spain and has had various experiences in the fields of Photography and Graphics.
Together they began to focus on shapes and design, devoting their efforts mainly to take other natures, hidden or sacrificed for the production demands, out of ordinary objects.
They participated in different national and international contests such as NuoviSegni (Il Sole 24 Ore) with a design of a multifunctional centre for suburbs, the Mitsubishi contest with the design of a concept car and the Nespresso contest with the design of a coffee stick.
In the field of food design they have created products that are still in progress.
Their next project is a sustainable-energy-supplying concept house.
