We've featured previously the clever beauty of the Slow chair designed by the Bouroullecs for Vitra, but we couldn't resist to share with you its beautiful back side.

Slow Chair

The Slow chair is constructed using a very simple metal frame and an elastic polyester knit stretched over it, which provides the needed strength, perfect comfort and a beautiful transparent effect. The cast aluminium legs are attached to the body of the armchair with two screws, which aren't hidden but well exposed. The shape of the legs is so harmonious and congruent with the curves of the armchair that it they feel as one, if it wasn't for the mirror polished finishing that makes them more visible.

  • 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.
