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.
Instead of recent designs using more and more thinner metal pipes I wanted to go the other way. My idea was to use a big metal pipe for the construction as well as function. The 80 mm steel pipes transfer the aesthetics of skids to my design and give them a specific dynamic and character. This dynamic recovers also in the back rests. The massive upholstered backrest provides a super soft comfort. Pipe is unique and figurative. The selection of strong colors and fabrics underline the claim of a character and companion.
