A chair will always be a chair: Functional sensuality
by Anna Moldenhauer | 4/10/2017
Concealed plastic, retro chic and stackable elegance: the number-one furniture item and its many facets.
"Softer than steel" is a poetic and delicate collection consisting of three benches, a chair, a collection of small tables, a coat stand and a range of shelves, created by the Japanese designer Nendo for Desalto.
"A section of the bench has flipped up and turned into the backrest. Poles wrap around each other to become a coat stand. By adding flipped, bent and wrapped details to metal sheets and rods, the ordinarily hard metal gain new functionality and a light, flexible feel, as though the metal has become paper or cloth".
Wall shelf in bent metal sheet, matt white lacquered.
