'Shelving System' by Naoto Fukasawa for Artek

In a world where every new product that’s launched seems to feature some pun in its name, it’s refreshing to encounter the literally titled ‘Shelving System’ by Naoto Fukasawa for Artek, launched at this year’s Milan Furniture Fair. Its utilitarian moniker fits perfectly with the project: a beautifully considered and pared-down modular system, which takes pride in its functionality.

'130' chair by Naoto Fukasawa for Thonet

“First, I perceived these chairs as design classics. But then I realised that their main quality lies in their sustainability and environmental friendliness: there is no material wastage, and the chairs are very lightweight,” says Fukasawa. “They meet all the requirements for a perfect product. I deeply respect this and therefore I have tried to base my designs for Thonet on the same philosophy. I wanted to create something very simple, something uncomplicated for Thonet.”

'Grande Papilio' by Naoto Fukasawa

With the ‘Grande Papilio’ Naoto Fukasawa once more demonstrates his feeling for proportions and details. The monolithic armchair, which is the big brother of ‘Papilio’ the upholstered chair B&B Italia presented last year, shows a harmonic balance of form, which starts from the curve of the back and arrives until the long conical shape of the frame.

This piece is also covered by fabric and leather, and also has a removable cover thanks to a metallic zip that characterize its back.
