Another amazing creation by Zaha Hadid in the furniture industry, a chair that simply looks like a signature, a mere “Z”, yet so futuristic and beautiful. Only she can pull this off and be admired for it. Zaha Hadid designed this chair for the Italian furniture company Sawaya & Moroni owned by Lebanese designer William Sawaya and Paolo Moroni. This chair was presented this week as part of Milan design week 2011.
As I have mentioned numerous times before, Salone Internazionale del Mobile, also known as Milan Furniture Fair, is the fair that designers and suppliers look forward to the most among exhibitions of the same nature. During this fair all brands and designers showcase their latest designs and trends for the coming year. In this post I will show you a preview of a few of the items that will be highlighted at the fair.
This Fair, Vitra will introduce the new Tip Ton Chair, that was designed in cooperation with British design studio BarberOsgerby.
The rocking base of the chair allows dynamic sitting which stabilizes the spine and encourages blood circulation. I am definitely getting one of those. This chair is stackable, comes in many colors, and best of all moves with you.
FAVN is the Danish name for ‘embrace’ and will be launched at Republic of Fritz Hansen’s showroom in Milan on Corso Garibaldi, 77 during the Salone Internazionale del Mobile 2011. The new sofa will be available to purchase from Republic of Fritz Hansen stores and selected authorized Republic of Fritz Hansen dealers from around the world as of September 2011.
