Riban | Turri Design

design by Toan Nguyen

In this collection, the search for the contemporary is revealed through a play of surfaces, twists and turns: the outside becomes inside; the backrest becomes a seat; and materials alternate in a way that is as organic as it is logical.

“Riban is a kaleidoscope of materials and purposes that move beyond the borders of everyday life. ”

Toan Nguyen

The intersection between Toan Nguyen‘s contemporary style and the craftsmanship of Turri Design is tied to history, to the origin of every language. Thus, the inspiration for the Riban collection was born: From the Old French word “ruban,” the undulating yet structured shape of ribbon prompted the new sofa designs by Toan Nguyen for Turri.

The structure of the armchair and sofa is upholstered in leather, in harmonious contrast with the upholstery fabric of the cushions.

This new living room shows Turri’s march toward Italian production that is increasingly oriented towards international design. Take, for example, the presence of buttons on the backrests, a detail that revisits a traditional element in a more contemporary and cosmopolitan key.
