Superb use of bent plywood in the “Alle” chairs, designed by Luca Nichetto for Skitsch.
Two bases are utilized (legged and columnar) in tubular steel frames. Then, bent wood seats are fitted in. The result blends two materials well, and the theme of blending is carried into the decorative theme. Gradation to the paint is meant to invoke wear – the aim to make the “Alle” reminiscent of beat up wooden cafe chairs.
Skitsch will preview the pair in London at the opening of their Brompton Road shop at the end of this month. (via DB).
