Quo vadis, furniture design? This year’s Salone del Mobile reveals a few ideas. An analysis in our glance back at the fair.
Zabuton is the name of the cushion normally used in Japan for sitting on the floor and which Nendo proposes here in a modern version. A futon-shaped lounge chair, draped informally over a metal wire frame. The random folds of the futon are extracted and poured into a polyurethane mould so as to form a pattern of "controlled folds", unique and harmonious. The collection also includes a chaise longue, a sofa and a dining chair.
