ASMUSA – American Society for Microbiology

In December 2015, we have been contacted by dr. Stefano Bertuzzi, CEO of the American Society for Microbiology based in Washington in the United States. He needed to set up his new office, divided into an executive office and a connected meeting room.

About office furniture he chose the line Cx by Frezza, while for the executive chairs we proposed the Aston Syncro by Arper. Being the spaces defined and interspersed with architectural elements such as classical fireplaces and windows in the Art Nouveau style, we created a layout and provided the dimensions to the HR manager, Kim Shankle, with whom we came in contact to define all the details for the supply.

The furniture have been installed, they arrived intact thanks to the specially made wooden packaging to ensure a safe transport, also thanks to the professionalism of the American installers to which we provided all the arrangements. The result obtained was excellent. Both Dr Kim Shankle and Dr. Stefano Bertuzzi are enthusiastic about our work and our products.
Below you can find some pictures, which have been kindly sent by the client.

The meeting table IMeet in the film The Martian

The conference table IMeet by Las Mobili: we can see it in the film The Martian, released in the United States on October 2, 2015 and in Italy on October 1. The Martian was directed by Ridley Scott and starring Matt Demon. It was based on a screenplay by Drew Goddard that was adapted from Andy Weir’s 2011 novel The Martian.

Critics are calling this science fiction film “a funny, thrilling ride, and a return to form”. The protagonist stars as an astronaut who is mistakenly presumed dead and left behind on Mars. The film depicts his struggle to survive and others’ efforts to rescue him.

It received several accolades including 6 Academy Awards and 3 Golden Globes. During the projection we can see the prestigious and linear meeting table IMeet by Las Mobili in Wengé finish and polished aluminum structure, where members of the NASA gather to find a solution to save and bring back to Earth the astronaut.

IMeet: a high quality product, totally made in Italy for an American film of great success… you can find it on LaMercanti.

La Mercanti in the USA

Last summer, we knew Mr. David Ransom, owner of his company “The Ransom Group“, located in Ohio.
We had the first contact through a video conversation via Skype, in which one of our interior designers, Antonio Consorti, has personally heard and considered Mr. Ransom requirements.

He needed an Italian desk for his new office, so Antonio, provided him all details with the help of drawings and images sent via Skype. In this way the customer could better consider and explain his choice and needs.

After this study, we proposed him a new line Athos by IVM, a mix of elegant finishes, innovative materials and trendy technical details.
Then, to help Mr. Ransom to find the right combination between the floor and the new furniture, we sent him different finishes samples so that he confirmed us his favourite combination for the desk: Olmo Tortora with Primofiore Tortora.

This experience, has been very exciting because, thanks to the new means of communication, it has been possible to provide to the customer the best of our services, and assist him in all his choices.

He needed for an executive desk in wood with a modern design.
The architect was directed towards a strong and clean line: the CX executive desk by Frezza.
We provided the rectangular desk in Elm with aluminum profiles.

La Mercanti followed also the packing and door to door delivery to Tehran, as always.

Isko Italy – The Denim Language

5 years since the realisation of the workshop the ISKO Srl, the world’s number one producer of premium quality denim, will again entrust La Mercanti to create a new showroom for the exhibition of products and the reception of national and international clients.

Always under the design supervision of the study Arch Plan, headed by architect Marco Bollettini, the client’s objective was to create an environment supporting the existent workshop.

So it has been realized an open space communicating with the workshop on the first floor and on the basement where there are the shelving and the archive of the clothes.
In the layout has been planned a workstation for the showroom manager, a meeting table for welcoming customers, a lounge area with ottomans and finally display elements such as shelves and display cases.

The attraction is certainly the central swivel clothes stand, handmade and named by the architect “ISKO CAROUSEL” because it turns manually as a real carousel.

La Mercanti provided also the furniture by La Palma: Mak stools, armchairs Cut and ottomans Kipu, all upholstered in Kvadrat fabric in the colors recalling the logo “Isko”. Other furniture instead is in Corten steel (rust effect) custom made.

La Mercanti, in collaboration with some specialized companies, realized also the plasterboard (walls and ceiling), in particular a special cast in plasterboard for the construction of the throat that housed the swivel clothes stand. We followed also the resin floor treatment, the painting of the walls, and the supply of lighting units by Deltalight.

It has been very exciting working on this project, because all together we realized the details chosen by the architect and the client.
To see the project on paper and render has been highly satisfying, a unique experience.
