Porada: the love for wood in the Chinese style
The project by Casaitaliana in Hangzhou with some Porada products
How to preserve the traditional Chinese style by combining it with modern design elements? Porada manages to link two different cultures and two styles, the Italian and the Chinese, creating refined and elegant wooden products, able to satisfy the most disparate tastes. Preserving the elements of one's own culture is certainly fundamental for the Chinese people, and being able to do it with refined and finely crafted furniture like the Italian ones is the strong point on which Porada focuses when exporting its furniture to the world.
The new Chinese style, always linked to the tradition, is a cautious, simple style with soft features. It must be able to adapt to modern lifestyles and aesthetic needs and fully reflect the traditional Chinese elegance. Porada fully interprets the unique temperament of the new Chinese style with precious, natural and elegant wooden furniture!
Founded in 1968, Porada is known worldwide for its elegant taste. By handing down and keeping alive the legacy of traditional craftsmanship, each phase, from the selection of the finest wood to the finishing of the final product, is subjected to rigorous tests. Even the mechanically processed products are then finished by hand in the final stage, to guarantee the perfection of the finished product.
Project by Casaitaliana: 3rd September 2018, Xinhu Shangri-La in Hangzhou, China
Here are some of the Porada products delivered at Xinhua Shangri-La villa in Hangzhou, southern China.
The natural and warm texture of solid wood gives the Infinity table the right combination of quality and simplicity. The Infinity table has a base in solid canaletta walnut fixed on a metal plate and a tempered glass top. The particular interwoven weave of the base gives movement and lightness to the entire structure, and testifies to the excellent ability of craftsmen to work wood with great skill.
