Slow Chair

One of my favourites pieces at Salone was the Cyborg chair by Marcel Wanders for Magis. Despite the hard, and somehow unfriendly name, the chair has a romantic allure that makes it simply beautiful. 
The mix of more and in some ways differing materials isn't a novelty, the Bouroullecs signed the remarkable Steelwood series for Magis, Jasper Morrison designed the Trattoria chair and Gcric the Monza chair with Plank, both mixing plastics with wood. 
Wanders gracefully mixes wicker with plastic; the seat and legs are integrated in a half-shell sort of structure made of sleek plastic and the backrest is made of woven wicker presented in different variations of colours and patterns, tiny nails holding the natural threads included.

  • 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.
