Simon | Official dealer - Salvioni Design Solutions

Salvioni is Simon official dealer

The Simon brand indelibly impresses in its style the trace of its founder, one of the greatest legends of the design world: Dino Gavina. Eclectic and self-taught, Gavina was among the first to understand the potential of the nascent Italian design and gave confidence to some emerging designers destined to become great masters. All in the sign of a very personal poetic born thanks to a vocation to the great industrial series and his personal interest in the world of art, always in the context of a clearly delineated cultural project. The Simon brand is now an integral part of the Cassina catalog.

Simon furniture

Dino Gavina founded Simon in 1968, after the sale to Knoll of his previous activity, the Gavina spa. His companion in this adventure was Maria Simoncini, who inspired the name of the compan. Simon furnishings are characterized by their significant historical value, evidence of an attitude to experimentation that makes them even today very topical. These are tables, chairs, consoles, tables and accessories of outstanding artistic value, which have now become true icons.

The Simon collection includes timeless furniture such as the Doge table by Carlo Scarpa, the real flagship designer of the brand, the Delfi table by Marcel Breuer, historical Bauhaus master relaunched by Gavina’s attention to the past, or Bramante furniture of Kazuhide Takahama. After alternating events and many company steps, Simon found the ideal location in 2013, becoming part of a company like Cassina, similar to philosophy and ambition.

Simon design

For Simon, Gavina involved some of his closest designers, big names in design history such as Marcel Breuer, Carlo Scarpa, his son Tobia Scarpa, the Japanese Kazuhide Takahama. His interest in the art world led him to also produce reissues of historical surrealist furniture, such as the Traccia table by Meret Oppenheim and the Man Ray mirror Les Grands Trans-Parents.
