The Flexform MOOD collection operates in an area of classic-contemporary tastes. It is a world with affinities to that of Flexform in terms of quality and elegance, but with more eclectic, multilingual stylist research, capable of inserting codes from the past through a process of simplification.
Mood shifts between retro and Deco, removing embellishments and stylistic redundancy through careful deployment of an aesthetic of subtraction. The refinement of the details, the fabrics, the finely crafted natural wood is a constant presence, throughout the collection. Mood plays with the forms of memory.
The fabrics conserve a range of warm tones, with bright colorful accents. The Mood world takes its inspiration from the beautiful furnishings produced in Europe during the last century, reinterpreted to update the image of sofas, armchairs, tables, beds, lamps.
The wide range of types (sofas, armchairs, chairs, ottomans, chaises longues, credenzas, wardrobe cabinets, chests of drawers, tables, end tables, beds, lamps) makes Mood an ideal choice for the residential and contract markets, hotels and lounges.
Mood products are found today in elegant public and private spaces all over the world, from a penthouse in Singapore to the halls of hotels in Hamburg or Phuket.
About the designer
Carlo Colombo was born in 1967 at Carimate. In 1993 he graduated in Architecture from the Milan Polytechnic, but by 1991 he had already made contact with Giulio Cappellini, for whom he designed his first piece in 1992: the Kyoto bed, presented at the Salone del Mobile in Milan the same year.
From this time on Colombo’s work as a designer flowed into hundreds of projects in collaboration with the leading firms in the sector.
In 2004 Colombo was named Designer of the Year in Tokyo. Between 2005 and 2011 he received the International Design Award four times from Elle Décor and he has won prizes for his projects from Gioia Casa and MD Magazine. In 2009 he was one of the winners of the Good Design Award presented by the European Center for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies and The Chicago Athenaeum. A sort of ambassador of Italian design to the world, he gives lectures and conferences in Israel, Greece, Portugal, Slovenia, Ukraine, Australia, Russia, Britain, Brazil and China.
Colombo’s work as a designer, initially focused on product and interior design, has been progressively extended to the construction sector in Italy and abroad. In 2009 he won an international competition for the design of two multi-functional towers in Abu Dhabi and his renewed interest in architecture has found scope in teaching in China, where he has lectured on design since 2011 at the De Tao Masters Academy in Beijing.
