One more design for the Milan Design Week 2011 is the first collaboration between London based studio Doshi Levien and Italian design brand Cappellini.The shape of the chair called Capo came from the image of a dapper gentleman in a well-cut suit and a felted hat.
With its tabular base, tall back, upturned lapel and cantilevered flexible arms the Capo armchair might remind you of another design week product – Pod Chair by Benjamin Hubert we posted about earlier. Just like Pod is said to be a private chair, Capo is said to provide shelter and “envelope” the sitter, “trasforming them into a boss”. Notice how both chairs come in felt, what seems to be a hot trend with seating furniture right now!
