"56 Daybed" Fabric or Black Leather Dormeuse Designed by Ron Gilad for Adele-C


"56 Daybed" is a daybed, ottoman or seat hybrid piece of furniture, designed by Ron Gilad and manufactured by Adele-C, featuring a metal structure with polyurethane padding with different bearing capacities, upholstered by fixed fabric or black leather covers and supported by painted miniature little chairs, made in steel and moulded by hand. Leather covers by Adele-C are aniline dyed in a vat during the tanning process, which avoids to use chromium salts. Indoor use only. DIMENSIONS: D. 31.5", W. 78.7", H. 13.7" Ron Gilad said about "56 Daybed": "While creating these pieces of design for Adele-C, I allowed mysef the freedom of playing through irony and proportions, although I mantained the balance between functionality and abstraction. Just like reaching the top of a cliff, but without falling down. I started the “56” collection with two useful objects: one for relaxation and the other for storage. The starting point was simple: a soft mattress and a wooden cupboard. My assignment was to bring the functional role to a higher level, both literally and conceptually. The past came out to help me. Adapting the Thonet no. 14 chair, making it smaller and reproducing it in steel, I obtained the stability needed for its supporting function, but assigning it to other components rather than to our buttocks. Details of the construction for 56 Daybed also increase absurdity: the mattress avoids the cliché of becoming a Zen object thanks to its unique central button, a clear reference to the French button-padding technique called capitonnè" RON GILAD (Tel Aviv 1972) is an Israeli-born designer who aims to disorder the boarders between functionality and abstraction. His hybrid creations combine minimalism and humour, defy reason and are yet absolutely practical, showing his talent in using materials with an aesthetic play. His works deal with the relationship between the object and its function, questioning our perceptions. He accentuates perspective with his sculptural shapes and graphic lines that tend to infinity an play with the environmental space. In Italy he works with companies such as Flos, Adele-C, De-Castelli, Dilmos, Salvatori, Nodus and Molteni&C. His works appear in solo exhibitions, such as the one in Tel Aviv Museum of Art, and in numerous collective exhibitions. They are part of the Israeli public collections and abroad such as the Museum of Modern Art and the Metropolitan Museum in New York. In 2013 he received the Wallpaper Design Award (Designer of the Year; Best Domestic Design) and Elle Décor International Design Award (Designer of the Year; Furniture Design). ADELE-C collection, including and extending the legacy of the well-known Cassina brand, consists of pieces of design indifferent to passing fads and ready to show new paths for interior design. Adele-C collection is typically ready to naturally adapt to any space, as its sobriety in style and quality of materials are simply perfect to enrich any room in a refined way.
