Imagine a corner entirely curated by one of the most influential Italian design brands of our times, but with a breathtaking view from one of the highest points of the peninsula: more than 3000 meters above the ground, in front of a window overlooking the Mont Blanc chain.
The moments of conviviality have always marked people's lives and their relationships, whether they are family, romantic, friendship or professional. It is an intimate experience, whatever the nature of the chosen company. The guests and the flavors of the Aosta Valley cuisine represent its fulcrum, but set-up and atmosphere are the elements capable of giving a new shape to the moments lived and making them truly unforgettable.
The Panoramic Bistrot of Punta Helbronner, houses a corner entirely set up by Kartell, to allow those who wish to experience a unique convivial moment, just like at home, but on the lowest point of the sky.
The feeling of being seated and projected towards infinity is sublimated by the play of transparencies expressed by the Kartell objects that frame this special corner where the products mix with the natural scenery of the Mont Blanc massif, almost creating a solution of continuity. The transparent Uncle Jim armchair by Philippe Starck is the perfect seat on which to ideally float towards the horizon, a special piece that combines elegance with maximum innovation. Thanks to years of technological research, Kartell was the first company in the world to work polycarbonate with aesthetic purposes for furnishings, giving way to an entire family of transparent design furnishings that have become among the best-known best sellers of the brand.
The poetry of transparency continues with the Sir Gio table by Philippe Starck where guests can have lunch sitting on Tokujin Yoshioka's Smatrik armchairs. The table is characterized by a central leg made with an injection mold that supports the colored glass top. The Smatrik armchair, presented in the crystal version, is instead made with an innovative structure that reproduces a three-dimensional effect that gives it an extraordinary lightness and refinement. And when the day comes to an end, the environment is illuminated by the dim lights of the Battery Lamps by Ferruccio Laviani, the small-sized abat-jour, whose great innovation is given by the fact that it is 100% rechargeable through a simple electrical socket and can live independently up to 8 hours.
The corner was set up on the occasion of the first edition of Courmayeur Design Week-end, an event which saw the town of Valle d'Aosta become an open-air installation. This is how the most futuristic cable car in Italy, Skyway Monte Bianco, joins one of the most famous Italian design excellence to provide new ideas on the living room for anyone who decides to venture under the roof of the sky.
