The table top is made of Corian® – durable, heat resistant, stain resistant, free of toxic substances and it can be repaired if necessary. With its artisan details »auí« follows in the footsteps of the rich tradition of craftsmanship in the Alps.

'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.’

The Italian deigner Luca Nichetto realised this series of furniture made from bent corian sheets. It was designed for the Italian manufacturer Andreoli.

“Inspiration for this product was born by the idea to realize a product which just like a stripe develop itself and random draws a neverending element, without limits.Elements, not presenting a precise direction for disposition, put side by side creates a sort of wall where the play between full and empty melts with its wiggly flow generating a contrast with materic typical features of Corian.”
