Vitra was in the mouth of everyone this Salone. Why? because of the anti-chair they launched.

Chairless

Can you picture Vitra, the leading furniture manufacturer, selling a chair that is the contrary of a chair? a chair with neither seat nor backrest? Vitra has decided to celebrate the very roots of seating proposing, or should we say, re-proposing an ancient way of seating used by the Avoreo indians of northern Paraguay.
No seat neither backrest as we were saying, but only a strap that tightens legs and back into a comfortable position when sitting on the floor. Ment for contemporary nomads and signed by chilean architect Alejandro Aravena, the strap is rolled and tighten by an elastic band and is available in 4 striking colours. You can get your own for about 90 EUR (120$) and by doing so help the Paraguayan Indian Communities, Vitra is indeed donating part of the proceeds to them, check out all the details and nice pictures from users at this site.

Can I just speak what a comfort toward hit upon a name who in fact is familiar with what theyre talking regarding on top of the internet. You certainly know how to carry an issue to glow and make it important. Extra public call for to study this and recognize this side of the narrative. I cant consider youre not more well-liked because you absolutely have the gift.

  • 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.
