Emu is known for its free-flowing woven-metal designs. Its new Intrecci collection, designed with Italian architect Carlo Colombo, is no exception. A mix of panache and restraint, Intrecci reinterprets classic woven furniture of the more staid variety. The table bases are particularly exciting; the space-bending shapes represent the kind of innovative weaves that Emu does best. In comparison, the club chairs are plush and elegant but hardly boring. As a whole, the collection has tempo, and you can mix and match it with other Emu collections (for example, Jean-Marie Massaud’s Heaven or Re-Trouvé by Patricia Urquiola) or amass the whole lot. In a bright finish, like pure white, Intrecci is ideally suited to modern landscapes and urban settings. emu.it
