In 2019, three artefacts of design, which have travelled the world, becoming true icons of contemporary living, are turning fifteen: the Cesar coffee table, the Van Dyck table and the Hamilton sofa, all designed in 2004 by Rodolfo Dordoni, are still the undisputed protagonists of interior designs on an international level.
Cesar is an object-sculpture, with an eclectic, multifunctional personality, which can be used from time to time as a small table, a decorative element or a stool, depending on how and where it is placed. Originally available in two colours, over the years it has been enhanced by new variants, and today boasts a variegated colour palette of 17 shades. Cesar, available in two shapes with glossy lacquered finish, has been photographed in different contexts, including both residential and corporate settings.
In 2013 the outdoor version was also launched, available in a selection of four colours: White, Sand, Celadon and Granite, all with a glossy lacquered finish.
The unique feature that makes Van Dyck a timeless object is the structure on which it rests. A sculpted base combining sophisticated structural details with a series of finishes of high prestige. Each table can be personalised by combining a wide array of materials for the tops, available in different sizes and shapes – round, square and rectangular – with those of the bases.
In 2017 Van Dyck was also introduced in an outdoor version, bringing its ultra-distinctive mark to open-air spaces too.
Hamilton is a seating system with a linear design, which guarantees flexibility and personalisation when designing interiors. Its arrival on the market launched the trend of sofas with versatile, modular combinations and bases sitting close to the floor. And this is indeed the very detail that makes it instantly recognisable: its base in metal with a Black-Nickel finish characterises the structure, which is slightly raised off the floor, like a frame that runs along the entire perimeter of the system.
The Hamilton family currently includes three types of products: Hamilton, Hamilton “Sofa” and Hamilton “Modulo”, offering a total of 53 modular elements. Dynamicity, versatility, flexibility: these are the three words that best describe this product and its natural tendency to continue growing and embracing new shapes and uses, since it was launched.
