Huang Quan x TURRI 2021 Collection

The Pinnacle Collection embodies its own inspiration: to explain the concept of “climax and culmination”, idealized through the Chinese expression Zhēng’Róng. Turri – a custodian of Italian craftsmanship; honours the spirit inside natural landscapes – typical of traditional Eastern paintings. These paintings often depict mountains or steep, rugged landscapes surrounded by water; which metaphorically evokes a moral standing to strive for greatness – an approach to life, deeply rooted in Chinese culture.

Relentless commitment and the desire to always broaden one’s horizons; is what raises the human soul to it’s peak – thus surrounding one with an extraordinary and authoritative aura. Notwithstanding the fact that in Eastern art and philosophy; grandeur must always be balanced by grace and simplicity. Naturally in mountainous landscapes, the gentler slopes and streams; harmonize with the highest peaks.

「 Pinnacle 」

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 becomes a synthesis between different cultures. Table, chairs, sideboard and vitrine designed by Huang Quan are an identity statement. With their sinuous lines, sometimes more rugged, sometimes more slender; these new furnishing accessories reveal the expression of a modern aesthetic with a prime materials sensibility and an attention to workmanship. Turri represents a Pinnacle also – a guardian of great manufacturing tradition; creating extraordinary results through committed, bespoke-design capabilities. In this sense, the Pinnacle Collection is a synthesis between different cultures; the Eastern one – philosophical and conceptual and the Western one – real and physical.

Since 1925, the first pieces of furniture to leave Pietro Turri’s shop were immediately identified for their quality. Three words, then as today, reassume the Turri philosophy: original, authentic, unique. These are the values that permeate all products: from individual pieces to comprehensive interior decoration projects.
