Product design caring to detail
Erik Sofa (2016)
The positions before mentioned do not impede him from continuing to design product successfully. Products as the Erik family, where we find a sofa, armchair and chair. The Erik sofa is the result of innovation and classicism, characterized by the ability to create a warm environment around the sofa, thanks to its geometry. In one hand, we can highlight its distinguished and modern design thanks to its arm and backrest. In the other hand, the cushions offer the tradition and the classic style. Dario Gagliardini is offering us a unique piece, perfectly balanced between comfort and creativity.
Agol table (2011)
We put aside the sitting furniture, to mention the Agol table. Visually, the design is a pleasure since the impression we receive from Agol is its sculptural shape combined with the contrast between the solid structural elements and the apparent lightness of the design. But Agol is not only visual; what really makes the Agol table a unique element is, combined with the facts mentioned before, the precision and the care in the treatment of raw materials. Without any doubt, A source of artistic expression that the designer shows us through the geometry.
