Mini, design by Marcello Ziliani for Parri, is a collection with a perfect fit for contract and home. The main theme of the project is the research of lightness and elegance in its shapes; the horizontal line of the backrest and its particular lateral line do attribute personality and character. Offered with several base options, different for their typology, destination, material and finish, Mini is offered in extremely contemporary colours : light blue “ serenity “, yellow ocher gold, the very sophisticated red “ peach echo “ as well as in classic white and anthracite. A sophisticated technological research has enabled us to obtain at the same time a light, solid and resistant shell ( reaching the severe American BIFMA standard ) made of a structural gas injected polyamide. Line, design by Marcello Ziliani for Casprini. The rhythmic vertical scansion of the lines created by the alternation full/empty of the back of LINE is inspired by the balance and perfection of the ancient colonnades. Even the choice of simple and rigorous forms is congruent with this dimension to which, voluntarily, some elements of breakage have been added as a predominance of verticality and tension evoked by the section shape of the rib work. Besides the possibility of various bases different by typology, use, materials and finishes, the collection is available also in extreme contemporary colors. These characteristics allow the chair to be suitable for contract – as well as for home settings. Particular interesting is the version completely in plastic with the base- and backrest in separate parts that can be matched contrasting color combinations or vice versa ton sur ton
This installation of 50 Manga Chairs by Nendo is the result of adapting the strong symbolic nature of manga comics to furniture design. Manga consist of a series of frames on a single sheet of paper that creates a sequence. Similarly, 50 standard chairs are lined up in a grid, each one conjures up a sense of story, and each with a design element from manga. For example, a “speech bubble” or “effect line” are added to visualize sound or action. Or emotional symbols from manga, like “sweat” or “tears”, are formed so that a sense of story and character can be felt. With the abstraction of manga comics in mind, physical aspects such as colour and texture are intentionally avoided as much as possible. Instead, a complete mirror finish is opted for, which generates new spatial layers as the mirror surface reflects the real world, just like manga does.
