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.
Boontje represents the consecration of the image-making reality of enchanted fantasy, which sees the industrialisation of the prototypes presented with such enormous success to the press and the public at the last Furniture Show. Covered chairs, revolving chairs, rocking chairs, banquettes, poufs, tables, where the ornamental euphoria of Boontje´s naturalistic patterns is dominant everywhere. Presented here are DOLL CHAIRS, high chairs covered of organdies and mousselines prepared in subtle variations of colours and textures; WITCH CHAIR, a chair covered in flakes of black leather with a strong reference to Victorian Gothic reinterpreted in a modern vein; OVAL TABLE, the table with a decorated top; the SWEETIE voluminous pouf, inviting and covered with a printed cotton fabric designed by Boontje himself, in the two variants of red-white and black-white; SWIVEL CHAIR, KISSING BENCH and HAPPY ROCKER, respectively a revolving small armchair, a small sofa and a rocking chair, covered in woollen cloths in various colour shades, laser-cut in cascades of flowers and geometries freely inspired by nature.
