'Boarding' by Patrick Norguet

‘Boarding’ is the newest creation by Paris based designer Patrick Norguet for the Italian manufacturer lapalma. The restrained upholstery is designed for public spaces and high frequency areas but due to its deep seat and distinct shape it is also suitable for a sober living area. The wooden internal frame is completely upholstered with fireproof foam. Two additional cushions provide a soft padding.

'AP' chair by Shin Azumi for lapalma

Italian manufacturer lapalma presents this wonderful plywood stool designed by the Japanese born and London based designer Shin Azumi at this year’s Salone del Mobile in Milan.

“This project began as an experiment to express the excellence of bent plywood in a maximized way.
The aim was not only to explore sculptural beauty, but to also maximize functionality within a minimal structure. The final result is a stool with a mono-coque structure, created from a single sheet of plywood. Unlike other stools there is no distracting division between its parts. The seat and body of the stool seamlessly merge from one to the other in a single fluid motion. The stool has a large contact area between itself and the floor to disperse the pressure”, the designer explains.

Elementary design wherever you look. Many manufacturer demonstrated at this year´s Salone del Mobile a distinct propensity to simple and clear constructions and forms. The ‘Stil’ Chair by the French designer Patrick Norguet is another example for this tendency. The stackable chair has a steel construction and optionally a wood or steel backrest and seat.
