A collaboration across oceans between Pietro Franceschini x Hegi Design House, the Urania collection was designed by Pietro and developed by Hegi.
Deep in preparations ahead of the launch event on the 19th of May, we invite you behind the ‘seams’ of Urania for an exclusive look at the inspiration that led to the collection, captured through the early making stages prior to show day.
Designed during a creative momentum in the relaxed Italian Riviera Ligure, Urania brings playfulness and longing for those innocent days of our childhood.
The soft lines and upholstered curves continue our research on Neotenic Design and Sculptural Furniture. What emerges is fluidity, innocence, sensuality and the frisky feminine and masculine. The modularity inspired by the classic DS-600 is reinterpreted with a fresh and current touch which makes Urania an instantly iconic series. Upholstery work by dumped and ditched here
