A touch of new objectivity
by Fabian Peters | 5/10/2018
Quo vadis, furniture design? This year’s Salone del Mobile reveals a few ideas. An analysis in our glance back at the fair.
Fjord is a collection of contract seatings: the Relax armchair, small armchairs, stools and pouffes. The first is an armchair, archetypal of relax, given its soft supporting and comfortable form, the high back, arm and seating adapt to the body, fitting around it, following its contours and anticipating its movements. The essential and light frame takes shape thanks to the use of new materials and new production technologies, while the visible stitching emphasises contemporaneity. The armchairs are objects of effective daily use, however, they maintain the feature of comfort and can be used in any public area.
The collection has a steel frame covered with injected flame-retardant polyurethane foam.
Basements in varnished steel (armchair relax and revolving armchair); in stainless steel with polyurethane underfeet (armchair); in shock absorbant plastic (stools).
