Pinnacle is the name of Turri’s new collection entrusted to the award-winning Huang Quan, a leading figure in the Chinese interior design industry. A collection of furnishing accessories that are a perfect synthesis of Eastern philosophy, Western culture and contemporary taste. The Pinnacle Collection embodies its own inspiration: to explain the concept of “climax and culmination”, idealized in the Chinese expression Zhēng’Róng, which indicates the height, a privileged point of view – a peak. The first image of the mountains; evokes association to that of the Zhēng’Róng principle – which is the basis of the Shan Shui art movement, a painting style depicting natural landscapes. A collection full of symbols and meanings, masterfully executed in every detail. Nature’s mountains inspire the shapes – evident in the sculptural forms and slender lines. A rhythm of bold and vigorous strokes, soothed by others that are softer and more circular. Even the selection of Pinnacle’s materials are symbolic of this natural landscape – the marble is a clear reference to the rocks; whilst the combination of walnut wood and leather, expound upon the balance between grandeur and grace. Pinnacle’s chair has vigorous strokes, clearly evident in the wooden structure, soothed by others that are softer and more circular such as in the enveloping back. The chair can be covered in leather or fabric. This image of nature’s mountains inspires; the shapes of the Pinnacle collection – profoundly evident in the sculptural base of the Pinnacle Table. It’s surface top is available in marble or natural wood. The steep sections of the wooden structures, are soothed by others that are more circular; such as in the curved sides of the Sideboard – whilst metal detailing are like small points of light, that highlight the shapes. Overall, the careful craftsmanship tastefully tells, the commitments and applied wisdom necessary, to achieve an extraordinary result – in this sense Pinnacle becomes a synthesis between two cultures: the Eastern one, philosophical and conceptual, and that of the Italian design of Turri – a guardian of great manufacturing tradition.
