Salone Del Mobile 2019: Roll and Hill
This year, Zehana had the great pleasure of visiting Salone Del Mobile in Milan, Italy for Design Week. If you aren’t aware, Salone Del Mobile Italy is a week long, furniture fair that showcases some of the most established and upcoming brands in the world. If you ever have the opportunity of visiting Milan, Italy during Design Week, we totally recommend visiting Salone Del Mobile even if you aren’t a designer as it is quite the experience.
Some booths we thought were too amazing to not share with the world and took it upon ourselves to document our experience and present them to you in a form of a series here on our blog. The purpose of this series is to further expose you to our industry. We’d love for our readers to have a deeper understanding of our passion for interior design and who we look up to in the furniture industry for being the most innovative and original. There is no particular order to this series so please subscribe to our blog if you’d like to be updated when we’ve published about other brands.
With over 1,000 exhibitors at Salone this year, we were amazed with each and every booth that we found, some though, were almost unreal. Roll and Hill was no exception. Roll and Hill is a lighting company that is most known for working with the most remarkable young designers working today. They mostly create their products with brass, bronze, leather, wood, hand-knotted rope, and mouth-blown glass.
Their presentation was absolutely amazing. It was and open booth with dusty pink walls and carefully positioned lighting. Their light fixtures were work of Philippe Malouin and embodied the style of Roll and Hill like never before.
Dispersed throughout the booth, there were poles of light in forms of an arch spanning between ceiling, walls, and floor. This new collection, Pole, is meant to be flexible and a solution for modular lighting.
Another major piece that was displayed in this event was Coax, 3 pendant styles that are made of metal, glass and tubes of light. The open cylindrical glass surrounds the tube of light allowing it to be suspended in the air.
The last piece that was exhibited at Roll and Hill was Atlas, 2 pendant styles with illuminated glass globes and intersected metal.
Viewing their new work had made us really excited for their new collection launching early May, 2019. Our experience at Roll and Hill was incredible and we cannot wait to visit them again in future expositions.
