'TWB' armchair by Raw Edges for Cappellini

In 2008 the London based designers duo Raw Edges, founded by Yael Mer and Shay Alkalay presented their ‘Tailored Wood’ furniture for the first time at the Aram Gallery in London. This year the Italian manufacturer Cappellini took it into production and enlarged the family by an additional armchair. The light weight pieces are made from ash wooden veneer filled with expanding foam. This particular construction procedure and filling of the product renders each piece different from all the others.

'Bac' chair by Jasper Morrison for Cappellini

The quiet man of design, Jasper Morrison, has created a chair for Italian brand Cappellini that, as one would expect, is considered and beautifully executed. Known for designing products that are almost timeless and transcendent (if you haven’t read his book ‘Super Normal: Sensations of the Ordinary’, co-authored with Japanese product designer, you should), the ‘Bac’ chair is elegant in its simplicity.

The piece is made of solid ash and plywood, the frame being available in bleached, wenge-tinted or cherry-red-aniline-tinted ash. The seat is upholstered in either leather or linoleum. ‘Bac’ made its début at this year’s Cologne Furniture Fair (imm cologne).

super normal: 'Bac' chair by Jasper Morrison for Cappellini

super normal: 'Bac' chair by Jasper Morrison for Cappellini

“Super normal” is normal
At times of crisis many manufacturers go back to basics, and the design principle of the “super normal” propagated by Naoto Fukasawa and Jasper Morisson has become the answer for products when times are hard. No more focus on elaborate experiments with design and form. The aim is no longer to be noticed whatever the cost – instead the objective is to become part of scene as unobtrusively as possible. Delicate new interpretations of the archetypical chair were to be seen in large numbers and are intended to ensure healthy sales figures without long development times. The reason for this trend is that the “super normal” (almost) always adapts itself to its surroundings, whether these are in private households at the kitchen and dining table or for commercial purposes such as the restaurant or waiting room…

“Applied graphics”
“Applied graphics” as an eye-catcher for furniture were a prominent feature in Milan, for example the surprise effects in the designs of Front for Moroso. Draped covers or soft cushions are printed as photo-realistic graphics on furniture upholstery.

The seat is created entirely of a single sheet of felt

It is the first time the Italian manufacturer Cappellini is collaborating with the New York based designer Dror Benshetrit. The very smart application of two-tone felt has made it possible to achieve a soft and elastic seat without the use of the usual upholstery materials, such as foam or springs. ‘Peacock’ is entirely created of a single sheet of felt wrapped over a minimal metal base varnished in dark brown.
