The Colander Chair by Patrick Norguet

February 24, 2016

Colander Chair- In 2015, Patrick Norguet has designed a new chair for Kristalia. It is stack-able and can also be used outdoors (it has small holes also for water run-off), an aluminium frame (a die-cast aluminium crosspiece and extruded aluminium legs), with a seat and back in moulded polypropylene.

It currently comes in the following colours: white, black, beige, coral red and basalt grey. It is a versatile chair: it is excellent for the catering sector, ideal in homes, and can be used both indoors and outdoors.

From the perspective of pure design, we like to think that what Patrick has developed in 2015 is the outcome of a series of objects and works of art that have become milestones in culture in general.

We think of the distinct colours of the Amanita mushroom, the mushroom in fairy tales and cartoons.

We think of Meccano (Frank Hornby, 1908). We think of Braun Radio (Dieter Rams, 1960), the Muji CD player, (Naoto Fukusawa, 1999), and the Apple Mac Pro (Jonathan Ive, 2006), all commonly used products that are real works of art in terms of design.

Last but not least, we think of the art and pictures in the Edge series by Damien Hirst (1988). We needed to give meaning to its holes and link up with Kristalia and its Italian style.

What kitchen utensil is used every day in Italy? The colander.
