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.
Panna Chair springs to life when someone sits on it, adapting its shape to that of the person. It is soft and embracing. Its lines are graceful, sinuous. It is the essence of research, elegant design and experimentation. Panna Chair is made of polyurethane foam over a metal frame. In keeping with his study of materials, Tokujin chose fabric as the chair's value-driven component. A fabric designed to be highly practical and functional is revisited and reinterpreted for its inherent poetry. Upholstery designed like a dress to be slipped on and pulled down over the body.
The name, material, stitching, gathering, softness, thickness and colour are messages which convey the soul and function of this chair and the feeling of fulfilment it gives you.
