Aro by Carlos Tíscar for Cadell

 

Aro by Carlos Tíscar for Capdell. The collection reinterprets round chair typology bringing up to date a way of thinking which survives in our collective imagination. With a circle as the common denominator, several elements of chairs and tables of varying sizes, all of them made of wood, are achieved using finish touches which take us back to traditional cabinetmaking.

'Fly' chair by Patrick Norguet for Offecct

'Fly' chair by Patrick Norguet for Offecct

Swedish design manufacturer Offecct has launched four new furniture pieces at this year’s Stockholm Furniture Fair. ‘It’s not really a complicated design,’ maintains French designer Patrick Norguet of his new ‘Fly’ chair, in spite of the fact that he worked on the project for four years before his collaboration with the design team at Offecct identified the right technology to produce the chair. Compared by Norguet to the type of helmet worn by Japanese samurai, ‘Fly’ requires relatively little energy for the production of its fabric, which has an obvious benefit in terms of sustainability.

'Snowflakes' tables by Claesson Koivisto Rune for Offecct

'Snowflakes' tables by Claesson Koivisto Rune for Offecct

Swedish architectural trio Claesson Koivisto Rune have created a table called ‘Snowflakes’, which lays claim to being the first industrially produced piece of furniture in series where each individual piece is different from the next. Made from Corian, with the aid of advanced computer software, the table attempts to achieve the same variation found in real snowflakes. The table tops are cut by a milling machine, which is controlled by a piece of software that alters the milling program each time within certain parameters. The result: sameness with difference.

'Origami' armchair by Carlos Tiscar for Offecct

'Origami' armchair by Carlos Tiscar for Offecct

The name of Carlos Tiscar’s new wingback for Offecct pretty much says it all in terms of the inspiration for the piece – ‘Origami’. The chair combines the visually pleasing angularity that one finds in Japanese paper-folding with a softness provided by its generous upholstery. Of his design, the Spanish designer says, ‘A person can sit comfortably in this chair for a long time. To me, good design is environmentally sound because these objects and furniture tend to have a longer lifespan.’
