Dolfin & Gae / Carpanelli
Taking advantage of its centenary know-how, Carpanelli Bottega d’Autore, has been creating unique furniture standing out for the refined aesthetics, the use of the noblest materials and the excellence of ancient workmanship, handed down for generations and enriched with the most modern technologies.
The company’s vocation to research and open innovation is supported by the collaboration, with a dedicated section, in the international design competition Ideas x Wood, organized by Tabu and now in its third edition. From the extraordinary 2019/2020 edition, the company has awarded several projects by professionals under 39 and students, including Dolfin and Gae, today turned into products and ready to be premiered in September at the Milanese supersalone.
Dolfin is an elegant armchair in solid ash wood, available with black, natural and Canaletto walnut finishes, inspired by a detail of the Venetian manufacturing tradition – the unmistakable iron, or dolfin, located at the bow of the gondola – turned into a refined piece of furniture.

The Gae modular bookcase, on the other hand, is inspired by the volumes of the modern Piazza Gae Aulenti in Milan: a combination of precious woods, leather and metal, which conveys elegance and lightness thanks to the harmonious alternation of solids and voids.
