Flawless legend: In memory of Alessandro Mendini
e15 art director Farah Ebrahimi tells about her special encounter with the master of “banal design“.
By recasting in a contemporary key the Windsor chairs with their timeless charm, Newood and Newood Light are born and signed by Alberto Brogliato and Federico Traverso. In this new collaboration with Cappellini, the creative duo brings the attention back to the chair and their practical approach to design hits home. Newood and Newood Light reveal the perfect balance between filled and empty spaces, a harmony between technologically advanced manufacturing and craftsmanship, a meeting between past and present. A concept expressed in the extraordinary attention to details and especially in its characteristic backrest made of curved solid wood: this element conveys the tactile pleasure, the authenticity of wood and its reassuring beauty. Newood is a hymn to pure design, confirmed by the fact that it’s the first stackable chair, completely made of wood, by Cappellini. Available in the classic colours of black and bleached wood, it’s renewed in the contemporary shades of Shangai blue and Cherry red.
