URBANTIME by Diemmebi presents the CORTINA.026 collection, which imagines the future and solves its needs with a pragmatic yet joyful approach
A collection by Basaglia + Rota Nodari Studio.
In Diemmebi, by entrepreneurial nature, we think of the future: an emblematic example of this is the choice to act more and more in the urban space – with the collection URBANTIME by Diemmebi – where the community moves between public areas and commercial spaces, to be enhanced through the wide range of design products.
It is with this aim in mind that the designers Alberto Basaglia and Natalia Rota Nodari projected themselves to the 2026 Winter Olympic Games in Cortina, dedicating a first design to this event, the bench with backrest, whose qualities immediately perceived by the market naturally generated an extension to a Cortina.026 product family.
Flat bench and tables, available in various sizes (60/120/180 cm) with a modularity that makes them suitable for any project scale, from micro to macro, are for the first time stackable and therefore easy to store and handle, since they do not require fixing to the ground. The design stands out for its minimalism and chooses colour as its main strength: next to the neutrals (white/grey/black), primary colours (yellow/red/blue) available in interesting shades. Durability, an element that is coherent with the eco-friendly vision of URBANTIME by Diemmebi, is entrusted to the strength of the metal, treated with hot-dip galvanizing and polyester powder coating for outdoor use. Baskets complete the family, which can be equipped with ashtrays and for recycling.
The practice of good ‘Made in Italy’ is represented coherently by URBANTIME by Diemmebi: the functional approach coexists with the timeless aesthetic lightness.
