A touch of new objectivity
Quo vadis, furniture design? This year’s Salone del Mobile reveals a few ideas. An analysis in our glance back at the fair.
Emeco, the Aluminum Chair Company, will debut “Nine-0”, a new collection of chairs and stools by the Italian designer, Ettore Sottsass at the 2008 Salone Internazionale del Mobile this April. The new designs re-imagine the classic, all aluminum Emeco 1006 Navy® chair, built for submarines in WWII, and manufactured by Emeco since 1944. These are last chairs designed by Mr. Sottsass, who died on December 31, 2007 at the age of 90.
