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.
The Shadowy Chair deckchair and Sunny Longer sunbed have shapes that evoke the beach furniture found at the North Sea in Northern Europe in the twenties, become contemporary by the use of digitally drawn colour patterns and woven by expert African craftsmen using coloured plastic threads. The structure is in steel, with a robust shape. Shadowy has curious ruffles in the end parts, in the armrests and backrest that turn into a parasol cover. In Sunny Longer the same ruffles become a comfortable headrest.
The colored patterns are obtained by the weaving of four colours. Three versions are offered, one with three tones of green and blue, one with red, orange brown and yellow and the other with brown, white, pink and green.
