Azul | Turri Design

design by Paola Navone

In the Azul collection, Turri’s “Made in Italy” ethos is expressed through the contemporary look and unmistakable style of Paola Navone.

“Blue has no dimensions; it is beyond dimensions, whereas the other colours are not… All colours arouse specific associative ideas, psychologically material or tangible, while blue suggests at most the sea and sky, and they, after all, are in actual, visible nature what is most abstract.”

Yves Klein

Borrowing from the artistic world of Yves Klein, who created the most perfect expression of blue, Turri introduces the Azul collection, designed by Paola Navone – OTTO Studio. Turri’s meticulous manufacturing skill and attention to detail approach that of Italian high fashion, thus elevating the eclecticism of Paola Navone, who has reworked the tradition of the Turri brand by reconfiguring proportions and experimenting with materials and finishes.

For the living area, we have the Azul sofa. Though traditional in shape, it takes on new dimensions as a macro weave in blue velvet. The perfection of the Azul sofa lies precisely in its imperfection and in its ability to shape any atmosphere in which it is placed. The blue mirrored coffee tables add more playfulness with their fringed borders and reflections.

The over-sized pendant lamp takes up the shape of classic lanterns but is deliberately, and ironically, enlarged in proportions.

Azul macro weaving is proposed for the collection’s sofa, chair and bed. Through a process requiring hours of production time, each velvet tube is cut, sewn, padded and woven by hand. This expert craftsmanship gives life and character to unique, non-replicable pieces.

The Azul bed’s headboard is made from macro velvet weaving, contrasting the footboard that is upholstered in smooth velvet.
