8 chairs with a refined and sophisticated design that combine art and functionality
The chair is a recurring piece of furniture in different rooms of the house: from the dining area to the living room, from the entrance to the bedroom and more, in each of these rooms a carefully chosen seat is always useful but also decorative. The visual impact of one or more chairs is an interesting aspect of the concept of a room and can be an ace in the hole to be played to give an already furnished house an additional decorative boost. It is no coincidence that the most creative designers have all measured themselves with the design of seating with character, calibrating function and aesthetics in order to create unique pieces of their kind, similar to sculptures but with the additional ability to respond to a functional need. In some cases, it is a chromatic choice, in others a material, in others a purely formal one: each of these 8 projects chooses a personal path to transform the need to sit and let people sit in a pretext to bring an artistic touch to the environment.
The Panton Chair was designed by Verner Panton in 1959, in an experimental and innovative project for those years, which for the first time imprinted movement in a chair. This sinuous curve that becomes a seat is the result of his intuition and the engineering of the Vitra technical department which was able to give the creative idea of Panton a feasible form. Today Vitra, to celebrate this project, has launched a limited edition, the Panton Chair Duo (on the cover) of 999 pieces available in five color combinations in which two by two are combined with purple, green, red, pink, blue and Orange.
The Chair One is a chair that comes from the future: designed to be stackable, light and to minimize the material used, it responds to a series of technical characteristics whose result is a surprising formal implication. The chair is like a sculpture devoted to geometry and is light and suitable for outdoor use.
Craftsmanship and industry converge in the iconic chair imagined by Tom Dixon and produced by Cappellini. Dixon, who has always been fascinated by the world of craftsmanship, imagined a chair with a metal core on which, with manual work, the weft of straw that forms the seat is woven. In a sinuous and feminine shape, light and elegant, which adapts to any room in the house.
How to transform 45 meters of polished steel wire into a seat? Piergiorgio Cazzaniga responds to this challenge by creating furniture of great elegance and determination. Sign Filo is an essential chair but with character, in which the metal draws a compact but visually light and ethereal profile.
Industrial inspiration is seasoned with a playful twist in this project by Konstantin Grcic for Vitra. Lightweight and stackable, Stool Tool is like a monolithic sculpture but at the same time arouses fun for its primary and consistent forms.
Iconic, sculptural, and bold, this chair was conceived by Scottish designer Mackintosh for the Hill House, a home project in Scotland. It evokes Japanese architectural graphics and is a tribute to woodworking. The structure is in fact in solid ash whose maximum expression is the net that characterizes the upper part of the backrest.
Frank Gehry carries out an unexpected experimentation in the choice of materials and in the case of the Wiggle chair he creates a precious sculpture starting from a poor material, such as corrugated cardboard. Yet, the refinement of the forms so catches the eye that the material used fades into the background in favor of a unique visual and use experience.
The Zig Zag chair is an authentic and historic icon: designed in 1934, it is still surprisingly current and captivating. It consists of four cantilevered solid wood panels, held together by dovetail joints. Its essential and graphic profile integrates with discretion in any type of environment.
