Low Pad by Jasper Morrison
Jasper designed the lowpad for Capellini. The fact that Capellini was able to find a car chair making company who could make the leather seating pads perfect, greatly contributed to the success of this chair
Italian manufacturer Capellini is “at it” at Pinterest. I noticed they are looking at our Pinterest boards today. Hence I discovered a whole set of Capellini Boards where I found this scan from some glossy. And off course added it to our Chairchez La Femme series.
I felt I needed to share their Pleated Pleat by Raw Edges Design Studio first to demonstrate Yael Mer’s occupation with foldeable material. In Tailored Wood for Capellini she uses wood veneer that is filled with foam and the wrinkling process resulting from the foam injection gives each piece a different look and feel.

Lloyd Schwan, 45, Designer With an Eye for Bold Color
By WILLIAM L. HAMILTON
Published: January 27, 2001
Lloyd M. Schwan Jr., an American furniture and interior designer who brought an artist’s eye for bold color and form and a lively wit to the craft of design in the 1980’s and 90’s, died on Jan. 19 at his home in Kutztown, Pa. He was 45.
He committed suicide, his family said.
Born and reared in Chicago, Mr. Schwan studied fine arts at the Chicago Art Institute. With Ms. Godley he began his career as a designer in 1984 with their GodleySchwan Design. The company, which moved to New York the next year, initially produced art furniture pieces hand-made by the couple in their studio in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Cabinetry, tableware and lighting were eventually manufactured.
