Maritime flair does not always have to be a matter of blue and white stripes, as is demonstrated by the recently opened Oktopussy design restaurant on the island of Norderney.
Forging, the process used to shape iron, pressing it between the hammer and anvil, has a history that stretches back over millennia. Throughout the ages, this technique has been used to create an infinite number of everyday objects and decorative ar tefacts. The Officina collection of tables explores the possibility of establishing a new creative language while working with an ancient fabrication process such as iron forging.
After the tables launched at the last Salone del Mobile, this year the collection expands to include a chair and stools that echo the forged iron structure of the tables, combined with shells in a range of different materials. Once again, absolute simplicity combines with the allure of a raw material handed down through the centuries, alive, with those slight imper fections that make each piece in this collection unique, with an unmistakably industrial feel, but combined with a profoundly refined and elegant spirit.
