Diabla 2022 Annex27 January, 2022
The journey begun with the 2021 Diabla catalogue was conceived at a time marked by the impossibility of leaving home. This gave free rein to the imagination before the interdiction of travels. The journey continues and takes us to new destinations through the 2022 Annex: ‘Adventure Accomplished’. The culmination of this imaginary adventure full of emotion during the four seasons reveals a universal truth: it is impossible to stop the innate instinct to explore and connect with the nature. Travel, even in dreams, allows us to evade and find beauty anywhere in the world.
The 2022 Annex takes the baton from the 2021 catalogue of novelties: it puts creative freedom and amazement in front of the most beautiful natural landscapes at the service of the brand’s new releases: PATOSO, CALCETÍN, VALENTINA UP, COSTURAS and the new designs of the TRIP collection. Borders open in front of our eyes, outer spaces have taken on a new and valuable meaning and we can finally go out in search of those well-being, peace and balance that only natural environments can give us.
As a result of our first collaboration with Teresa Sapey, we discover the COSTURAS collection, a design with a sporty spirit in the shape of a multipurpose pouf which unites, under the same concept, two essential geometric shapes such as the square and the circle in an iconic piece of furniture, elegant and simple as it is a baseball.
From the hand of Alejandra Gandía-Blasco, Diabla’s creative director and versatile designer, we see how a sock (CALCETÍN in Spanish) becomes an original separator and a soft seat rises on its legs until it becomes the charismatic PATOSO pouf. For its part, the award-winning VALENTINA series, which broke into the Diabla imaginary to decontextualize the cushion, elevates itself in the VALENTINA UP reinterpretation, where it acquires a more singular and ergonomic presence thanks to the new serrated legs.

This collection of nomadic soul is expanded with new designs devised by José A. Gandía-Blasco Canales and Borja García. These are a director’s chair, a sexy hammock, and three circular tables in different heights and diameters. The new furniture piecesare light, foldable and funproof creations that can be easily adapted to anytime, anywhere.
Observe it as if it were an exhibition of dioramas. Or perhaps as if you were circling the world by challenging the laws of space-time. It can be lived however you want, but when you get to the last page, you will just want to think about your next trip.
