Sovet Italia was founded in the 1980s by six glass craftsmen who sought to explore the role of this material in modern furniture. By the early 2000s the company had started working with designers from across the globe and today boasts an impressive team of renowned designers.
Their diverse list of creative workers includes: Lievore Altherr Molina, Ichiro Iwasaki, Altherr Desile Park, Matthias Demacker, Studio Irvine and Gianluigi Landoni. These individuals consistently devise innovative ways of addressing the customers’ demands in light of changing trends.
There are a number of products available at Sovet Italia including their world-famous dining tables, coffee tables, seatings, consoles, mirrors, lamps and other accessories. Their exquisite collections are based on different, intriguing design concepts.
The Totem table collection features smooth oval and round table tops that can be customized in wood, glass, Materia, or ceramic in different colors. The base is equally smooth and rounded and you can choose to have two bases with your table as well. The curvy nature of this collection and the bare simplicity of the materials enhances its vogue appeal that will become a fashion statement for your living space.
The Gocce Di Rugiada by Gianluigi Landoni features mirrors with curved, organic shapes that resemble water droplets suspended on glass. The 360-degree rotating back panel allows you to twist the mirror any way you want and thus play with the wall space. You can also group the mirrors in different sizes and changing positions to create a personalised art piece.
Another one of Landoni’s designs is the Zeta magazine rack and coffee table. It’s a single sheet of glass smoothly bending at different angles to form a zig-zag structure which can be used to store magazines at the bottom and as a table top above.
The Cadira chairs by Studio Sovet have a curved, upholstered seat that exudes comfort. The simple seat rests atop dowel legs available in different forms and materials. Materials such as velvet, leather, faux leather and Kvadrat fabric can be altered according to your preferences.
Magda sideboards are as loved for their simplicity as they are for their various customisations. It’s an elongated cuboid embellished with a subtle brass profile. You can choose from a variety of finishes and materials; be it a smooth mirror or marbled and wood-grained ceramics – both are available in multiple colours. The suspendable sideboards can also be varied. Its sturdy appearance is in part due to the metal frame that supports the structure on the inside. These days, durability is more than just practicality – it’s an entire aesthetic. The Magda shelves have a steel structure covered with ceramic, available in different finishes. They also come with an LED option which offers a perfectly diffused lighting that is ideal for creating a cosy environment.
