Elie Saab Maison and its interpretation of the concept of infinity

Harmony, perfection and eternity in the latest creation collaboration between Elie Saab and the architect Carlo Colombo
Infinity is the symbol of a series of fascinating, mysterious elements that man has always pursued, dreamed of harmony, perfection, eternity. Art, architecture, design, fashion are man's attempts to give a shape to these absolute concepts, enclosing them within lines, volumes, shapes.
 
The Fuorisalone, which runs concurrently with Milan's Supersalone from September 4th to 19th, 2021, is the occasion chosen by Elie Saab Maison to present its interpretation of the concept of infinity, with the event "Salon l'Infini."

In the prestigious headquarters located on the corner of Via S. Andrea and Via della Spiga, immersed in a unique atmosphere, worthy of a world premiere, Elie Saab Maison unveils the latest creation that stems from the collaboration between Elie Saab and the architect Carlo Colombo, jewel of the collection: the armchair “L'Infini”, an object conceived as synthesis of three absolute concepts, conferred to the simplicity of sinuous lines, which form two symmetrical symbols of infinity, embracing the seating. A unique, harmonious shape, no matter what angle it is viewed from, or the materials with which it is made from time to time. A design that is perfectly suited to the function of the item, but which, at the same time, lives outside this function. A set of lines, curves, of which it is impossible to identify the beginning or the end, allowing the gaze to be lost, eternally, in its contemplation..

The "L'Infini" armchair, created in Italy by the best craftsmen capable of working on one-of-a-kind, valuable objects, was designed with the goal of achieving excellence, without compromise. It all starts with the structure, which is a technological marvel built with newly licensed material that allows for the desired shape to be achieved and is further enhanced by the metal powder coating. The armchair, like Elie Saab’s exclusive tailored creations, can be customized based on the preferences of each customer.
