Knitted Pouf

Sometimes it feels as though Dutch design dominates the fair, and last night was no exception at the opening party for the TuttoBeNe exhibition. Presenting work from 28 young designers, the show was full of colorful whimsical objects, many made from recycled materials. The exhibition format was tight as usual and if you’re here, make sure you pick up a copy of the TuttoBeNe newspaper.

Vertigo Pouf by Aquili Alberg

AquiliAlberg is presenting the new design for Italian brand MOROSO, at the Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan next month. Vertigo pouff was developed following AquiliAlberg’s Vertigo table success at the Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan last year. VERTIGO pouff is a 4seats pouff, part of the Vertigo collection. VERTIGO pouff is a result of extensive research which analyzed movement perception. It brings to light a new dynamic quality which is customized in a very strong abstract and conceptual form which evolves in the space as a continuos rotations of surfaces. Inspired by Escher works, it gives the illusion of a continuous flow of wrapping lines which generate a clear sign. Its expressive and natural movement is symmetrical but at the same time rich in spatial complexity. VERTIGO provides a sensual image where the form is built up from a continuos exchange of full and emptyness, lightness and dynamism. Designer: AquiliAlberg
