Leather is Living Divani’s favourite material: the perfect finish that adds value to the impeccable shape of its creations.
The brand uses only leather of the highest quality, chosen for its softness and elasticity, from selected livestock farming and treated with methods that preserve the natural characteristics of this material, such as aniline through-dyeing.
Living Divani policy is to choose only leather from certified European producers, who check animals regularly to guarantee them a better quality of life.
Full grain leather is the best choice in the furnishing industry: laboratory tests confirm the absence of banned chemicals, in accordance with European regulations and, at the same time, guarantee durability without compromising quality.
Living Divani leathers are environment friendly and comply with UNI 111 81 standards.
Due to its natural origin, leather may present imperfections such as streaks; these are not considered defects, but characteristics that prove it is of natural origin and has not undergone additional processing.
To demonstrate the importance of the environment, Living Divani has also introduced in collection a “Zero Impact” leather, which emphasizes the ecological sustainability thanks to a production process that reaches the total compensation of greenhouse gas emissions through a project of reforestation of different areas, according to internationally certified procedures.
Since it is a material of natural origin, the leathers may show imperfections such as streaks or similar that must not be considered defects but characteristics that attest to the naturalness and the absence of additional processing.
Living Divani offers a vast range of fabrics in a variety of different colours and compositions, to meet the aesthetic and geographical needs of all its customers.
Natural fabrics such as cotton, linen and wool are combined with canvas, velvet or viscose with different weaves; neutral tones like white, grey and ecru are matched with bright nuances of orange, red, green and blue, but also with assertive patterns as “checks” and “stripes”; a choice of materials and styles, selected from different worlds, that offers only the finest options.
The upholstery, divided into different categories, is chosen taking in consideration specific standard based on resistance to light exposure and to use, in order to meet the highest international quality standards. All the different solutions of upholstery are cut and sewed according to the characteristics of each material, to ensure the best possible result.
For the outdoors, Living Divani offers a range of specific fabrics that have nothing to envy to those used for indoor thanks to their exclusivity and refinement. The durability, functionality and the high quality of the materials make the “open air experience”, safe and enjoyable.
Fundamental component of the Living Divani’s idea of comfort, the padding are made of polyurethane in different density and compositions, to ensure optimal ergonomics. Resistance to wear and to natural substances is a intrinsic feature of the polyurethane, guaranteeing durability for the padded products, an invisible material but of excellent quality which guarantees a long lifetime to upholstered products. For products with particular shape is used a cold-expanded polyurethane foam padding with metal insert, which allows new possibilities of expression.
Polyurethanes are selected and used by the Company with extreme care and attention, in order to give maximum performance and comfort, calibrating thickness and visual lightness of each model.
For a further softness of the seat cushions, feather is used with insert in polyurethane foam or visco soft (slow memory polyurethane foam), covered by a layer of prewashed and sterilized goose down or coupled with acrylic fiber layers.
For contract sector are used flame-retardant foams, tested and certified according to international standards to ensure adequate protection.
Down is the padding material par excellence thanks to its properties of softness and adaptability, waterproofing and heat regulation and antistatic and anti-allergy. Living Divani prefers, on account of its intrinsic qualities, Assopiuma certified goose down, in full observance of current laws on products and manufacture.
The wood used by Living Divani covers a wide range of typology, tones and finishes and is mainly used for tables and complements.
All woods in collection are selected among the best plantations in the world, carefully controlled and constantly regenerated and are worked with the utmost care in order to exploit its technical and aesthetic features.
The range of possible choice comprehend, ash wood with its essentiality, the warm colors of walnut, Stone Oak ®, an essence of natural origin whose texture and colors are reminiscent of those of a stone; Eucalyptus and a never lasting classic like chestnut, are also part of the collection.
Among the hard- wood are elm and oak, presented not only in their natural aesthetic beauty but also in dyed versions.
Metal is widely used in the manufacture of Living Divani products, alone or coupled with wood and glass.
Steel in chrome plated , matt satin, painted or brushed version is used for seat structures as well as for tables and complement to guarantee aesthetics and solidity, and to solve the necessity of combining complex volumes to minimal structures.
In order to offer always the best aesthetics solution possible and giving more and more possibilities of combination, Living Divani also use elegant and vintage taste coating like the burnish one or a more charming and modern one like the gun metal finish.
The beauty and refinement of materials reaches reach its maximum expression with the variants "ramato patinato", "nero patinato", the bronzed color finish obtained in electroplating and with the use of brass.
For outdoor products is used the Stainless Steel AISI 316.
The carbon fiber, a polymeric material with high performances, is often aided by its physical and mechanical characteristics that define the known characteristic of innovative and eternal material, more and more frequently used in the field of aeronautics, automotive, marine and product design. Living Divani cleverly uses this material showing off his ability to perfectly combine the latest technology with its traditional craftsmanship, creating original and creative products.
Living Divani offers different lacquers to connote, from a chromatically point of view, the solid surfaces of its collection: the wide range of colors available includes finishes, with reference to the RAL- K7 chart, in the shades of white, gray, red, yellow, violet and blue.
The lacquered finishing, only used on wood and HPL surfaces of tables and complements, differ depending to the product. The Company not only uses brushed lacquering with glossy effect but also with a matt look: both outcome are to maximize the aesthetics aspect of the product, highlighting or emphasizing the overall harmony.
Lacquered finishing means a type of paint that uses the lacquer: an opaque colored substance, made of polyester and / or polyurethane, which hides the veins of wood under a uniform hue.
With its veins and colours, its feel and visual impact, marble is the most noble stone. A metamorphic rock that following the recrystallization of its original mineral structure results in rocks completely different from the original.
Among its many variations, all with different colours and structures, Living Divani has chosen two: White Carrara marble and Black Marquinia marble.
With its intrinsic purity and preciousness and its historic tradition, Carrara marble is defined by a very limited number of imperfections. Its slabs have a white pearl texture that sometimes features greyish veins that don’t diminish its value.
On the other hand, Black Marquinia and Sahara Noir marble have a decisive and contemporary character. Their compact black slabs have respectively white, grey or orange swirls and veins of different intensity, that run across it diagonally and irregularly.
Lastly, Rosso Levanto marble has Italian origins and is characterized by a purplish, brown red background with shades and white traces that flow through it.
Used for complements such as tables or styling collection , Living Divani marbles undergo water and oleo- repellent treatments, to protect their surface.
Transparency, brightness and clean shapes: these are the main features of Living Divani tempered glass.
Thanks to controlled thermal treatments that subject it to temperatures of 650°C, the glass acquires 5 times more strength compared with normal glass and, if broken, it crumbles into small, inoffensive granular chunks.
Tempered glass, used for complements as tables and bookshelves, is available in a variety of colours: transparent, extra clear back-painted white, back-pianted black, smoked, blue or with a thin layer of metallic silver applied to one side, which reflects light and images on a regular basis like a mirror.
Thanks to the optimized performances, the synthetic materials chosen by Living Divani represent a perfect solution characterized by high resistance, which is essential especially in outdoor contexts or public spaces, without renouncing to the aesthetic nature.
Polyamide is one of the most important technical thermoplastic. Living Divani uses this material in the version strengthened with fiberglass to meet the needs of high dimensional stability, good stress resistance and high mechanical damping properties. These intrinsic characteristics make the material suitable for elements subjected to more risky conditions like high temperatures, for example for outdoor components.
Plastic laminate is an extremely versatile and durable material, which Living Divani couples with MDF supports for high-performance product components. Shelves of complementary furniture are thus covered by this highly resistant surface, which protects from scratches as well as water and chemical agents, making them perfect not only for domestic environments, but especially for contract contexts such as hotels or public spaces where the product is subjected to greater stresses.
Aimed at enriching and enhancing the aesthetics of sofas and valet stands, the buttons used by Living Divani are made of plastic material. They are available in two variants, col. Light and col. Dark, and, as standard, matching the color of the chosen cover.
Living Divani skilfully combines nature with craftsmanship, using stones of intrinsic value for versatile furnishing elements, with a delicate character and innate elegance.
The Slate stone is a fine-grained, compact rock that has been subject to metamorphism due to exposure to high temperatures and high pressure. Water resistant, strong, with a unique leaden black colour, it is used to create both indoor and outdoor surfaces.
Of uniform colour, Granite is a hard stone of volcanic origin and is an “intrusive rocks”, which emerge from solidified magma inside the earth’s crust; for its particular nature, granite is a very resistant material to abrasion and compression and easy to be maintained.
Its strong monolithic presence suits perfectly the minimal style of Living Divani collections. Concrete is an extremely versatile material with an urban look.
Please be informed that the production technology used for this specific finishing requires a carefully handcrafted attention and each piece is entirely made and finished by hand. Any imperfections are normal and should not be considered defects, but characteristics of the material itself, which makes each piece unique and different, increasing its exclusivity.
Entirely realized by hand made with waxed rope, cellulose rope, hide rope, Kevlar, PVC, polyester, rattan or polypropylene tubular, interweaving is a fundamental element of Living Divani craft and style; an area where rediscover old techniques and experiment new solutions.
In its different shapes and nuances, it personalizes each product playing with colours and patterns, exuding natural and every-day style.
Available for indoor and outdoor creations, it has both decorative and structural connotations.
Polymethylmethacrylate is a plastic material formed by polymers of methyl methacrylate, an ester of methacrylic acid. In common parlance the term methacrylate is also known under the trade name Plexiglas®.
Normally it is very transparent, more than glass, so that it has characteristics similar to optical fiber in terms of transparency.
