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.
Rain Chair and Rain Table constitute an alternative way of working both metal and sheet metal. They have a tubular steel structure and plates of perforated sheet metal that are laser decorated with delicate images and natural scenes characteristic of Tord Boontje's work. The shapes are a contemporary reworking of the classic wrought iron garden furniture, embellished and made lighter by the laser flower working of the surfaces. Rain Collection is a lightweight, delicate and refined set of furniture that looks to the future. The products have been devised for outdoors but can also be used indoors, also being a good proposal for contract furnishing.
