Metal Origami

Stefan Diez is a hands-on designer and his creative process often starts by experimenting with materials

In the case of the Bent series produced by Italian company Moroso he started manipulating a sheet of metal and challenging the limits of the traditional step-by-step process used for bending metal sheets, he came out with an original series of furniture made out of perforated aluminium sheets that are fold by hand, achieving forms that the traditional bending process would not allow.

  • Interview: Eugeni Quitllet
    When we first saw his name close to that of Philippe Starck we googled, with no luck. There was no human trace of Eugeni Quitllet and we thought, for a brief moment, that he could be an invention, some sort of imaginary alter ego created by his famously provocative partner. But shortly after all this revealed to be a product of our unquiet imagination: he is for real, thank goodness.
