Iris designed by Ilaria Marelli for the new brand Enuit21
The Italian textile tradition and attention to aesthetics and comfort come together in Enuit21, the brand born in 2021 to furnish the bedroom area with a proposal of beds and customised accessories, entirely Made in Italy. It is Antonio Caso, owner of Materassificio Montalese Spa in Pistoia, who imagined and wanted this new project: a coordinated programme entirely dedicated to rest and the ritual of sleep, enriched by a structured industrial supply chain, attention to detail and an accurate study of proportions, with an exclusive use of raw materials from our territory and a sustainable orientation in the use of recycled products. The long history of the parent company and its know-how in the manufacture of mattresses and pillows are therefore evolving, just over fifty years after its foundation (1971), towards the world of design, making Enuit21 its own brand of reference for a high-end offer dedicated to living and the home.
The catalogue of the new brand is made up of bed proposals, many of which are signed by the designer Ilaria Marelli, the young emerging designer Filippo Di Lecce and the Enuit21Lab, but also by sofa beds, poufs and coffee tables, together with coordinated textiles, which mark the debut of the brand on the Italian market in the first months of 2022.
One of these new proposals designed by Ilaria Marelli is the Iris bed, characterised by an upholstered, sculptural and voluminous headboard, which makes the beds important objects, to be placed freely in space. It has a precious quilted texture and is conceived as a soft ‘sheet’ designed to wrap around the short side and fold down to conceal the corners of the bed frame, a contrasting smooth band that can be made in the same fabric or with customisable combinations of finishes and colours.
The Iris headboard can be easily modelled to obtain different configurations: by opening it, it can offer a continuous boiserie or, again, it can be slightly curved both on the sides and, at the top, backwards, in this case giving it the image of a refined stole inspired by the world of women.
The result is a design imagined by the designer as an instrument of great refinement and at the same time flexible: it invites interaction and maximum personalisation, also ensuring maximum ergonomics and comfort thanks to the quality of the manufacture. The contemporary lines of Iris originate as an interpretation of traditional canons and are further embellished by the visible stitching and accurate details, while its ‘made-to-measure’ properties are entrusted to the range of over 250 fabrics available in the catalogue. Iris is offered in three size variations, with the possibility of integrating the storage unit for maximum functionality.
