As an undergraduate I dreamed of swiping one of UW-Madison’s iconic metal chairs from the Union patio. Carnevale Studio’s The Stretch Collection reminds of the seats that propped up my Spring and Summer afternoons, and are, if I may say so, a tad more inventive.
Jessica Carnevale, a RISD graduate, is showing the collection at the SaloneSatellite show in Milan. Made of latex, bungee, and rope, the chairs follow her desire to incorporate diverse material in beautiful ways. This set proves her ability, and successfully translates some traditional outdoor forms through non-traditional material.
