Sereno Totem Chair by Moredesign

Sereno Totem Chair

Moredesign has designed a true sculpture for Twentyfirst. It is an original large format chair that completes the line of thinking that created Beato pouf and Pacifico coffee table. Sereno has the same anthropomorphic lines of the pouf and the table but with a spacious and comfortable seat. It is perfect for a cocktail outdoors, and becomes the ideal conversation spot, where you can enjoy the magical night-time ambiance of the beach. Sereno is “artwork” that is utilized to rethink and reinvent the surrounding landscaping. With it you get a message of peace, meditation and protection; its lines are designed with innovative materials and technologies but with the spirit of ancient and mysterious times.

Miniatur Stuhl


I found the German site Miniatur Stuhl which means Miniature Chair in English. The photo is from Dirk Dowald, a German Collector of Miniature chairs and owner of the blog.

He started with collecting Vitra Miniatures, but added later other brands, moreover he occasionally makes his own miniature. Amazing and a very good blog albeit in the German Language. You can use Google translate to understand it if you cannot reed German.

I’ve added it to Chairblog’s Top Inspiring Chair Design Blogs and Sites.

Algon Lounge Chair by Luca Nichetto

Algon Lounge Chair by Luca Nichetto

The Algon lounge chair was developed by Luca Nichetto and Arflex simultaneously with the Algon chair, mixing the Scandinavian simplicity with quilted padding. Unlike the Algon Chair that has a strict form, the Algon lounge chair has high sides, which allow you to have the necessary privacy and is perfect for a quiet night conversation or a solitary moment of respite. The Algon name is inspired by the North American Algoquian tribes.

Both armchairs structures are made of molded polyurethane foam. The inner lining can be enriched by a quilt, which gives a pleasant feeling of warmth; The seat cushion is shaped in different density polyurethane.

About Arflex:

In 1947, a group of technicians based in Pirelli, Italy, began experimenting with new materials and technologies in the creation of cutting-edge, modern furniture. This was the beginning of the Arflex brand, established on the meeting of technology and aesthetic sensibilities, and driven by a high level of research and experimentation. Officially presented to the public in 1951, Arflex quickly gained recognition for their manufacturing philosophy.
