Light and relaxing, intimate and cozy settings. An equilibrium of light and shadow embracing the entire home from the living room to the sleeping quarters. Lema enters the home delicately, offering customized solutions for all types of décor and customer needs. As always, the company philosophy is complemented by the product excellence that has distinguished Lema for over thirty years. A Lema home is a protective shell tailor made for those who live in it.

For the 2011 Salone del Mobile, Lema has initiated a fruitful collaboration with the Japanese studio Nendo. Nendo means “clay” in Japanese and symbolizes the malleability of the ideas and products of Oki Sato’s studio.

Malleability is also the distinctive trait of Lema compositions: products that adapt to all needs through customized solutions that reward the customer’s every need and wish. This shared vision has produced Zigzag, a bookcase consisting of veneered wooden box modules that can be composed in endless ways.

Zigzag is a bookcase but also a formable, sculptural element that discreetly fills a variety of different spaces: bringing to mind historical Lema systems, the box system lends itself to variously modeled compositions and ensures maximum versatility and personalization. Under the artistic direction of Piero Lissoni, Lema continues to express a world of warm and functional, light and delicate settings crafted ad hoc for each customer. Simplicity of line is united with the masterful workmanship that has always been one of the hallmarks of excellence of Italian design.
