We recently received some photos of an interesting project created by Folditure head designer, Alexander Gendell. In developing the Leaf Chair, the artist used his travels as inspiration to create a design that is not only functional, but also original and aesthetically appealing: “The Leaf was just released in June and can be used in the dining room, living room, office, outdoors or just as a statement art piece. Most people wouldn’t expect comfort in a folding piece of furniture. Be surprised! The backrest is tall, and ergonomically formed to support the entire length of your back. The seat is a relaxing, yet sturdy outdoor mesh fabric. And the Leaf is a dining height chair, so unlike most folding chairs, it is actually designed to work well around your dining table. In fact, it works so well, that you probably won’t be needing to fold it away at all!” Aluminum Composite Panel frame, with stainless steel hinges, aircraft grade stainless steel rivets and other high quality weather resistant materials were used in the process of development. The folding chair can be easily adapted to any interior with the help of mesh fabrics to match any color scheme.
The Componibili Storage Unit was designed in 1968 by Anna Castelli Ferrieri for Kartell. A design classic, it is on show at New York’s MoMA and the Centre Pompidou in Paris. Functional, adaptable and smart, this hard-wearing and versatile unit has many uses around the home. Componibili units are stackable, available in round and square versions, varied sizes and several colors.
The String shelf system was designed in 1949 by the swedish architect and designer Nils Strinning. Easy to assemble and reposition, this well-formed system, with its ingenious design, is stable and functional. String® is available in several formats: the classic system, plex (launched in 1953), pocket (2005) and works (2014). The SH05 Arie shelf was designed by Arik Levy in 2008 for E15. The clever design enables a multitude of seamless combinations, made possible without any obvious visual repetition. Arie functions well as a bookcase, room divider, sideboard or storage unit.
