Today here is another table from the saving space category. The medium high chairs are made from dense foam while featuring a metal rail detail to give it a neat look on the top, in addition to a laminated top and spun metal support. This this seating arrangement is practical, and also looks awesome when is not in use, I like to call it “The Apple” table, because it really looks like a red, tasty apple.

Marta is an industrial designer with 3 years experience in fixtures and products. His immense passion for design has lead him to work with a multitude of disciplines and give form to his creativity. One work worth mentioning is a lounging unit from his Urban Collection dubbed as the Bulb. It’s a seating arrangement that can utterly functional when in use and when put aside, it can add décor to any place that it rests on. The medium high chairs are made from dense foam while featuring a metal rail detail to give it a neat look on the top, in addition to a laminated top and spun metal support. It’s not only an amazing piece of furniture, but strikes as a beautiful bulb when packed aside!

1000 Chairs Special Edition

1000 Chairs –  TASCHEN’s 25th anniversary – Special edition!

More than any other piece of furniture, the chair has been subjected to the wildest dreams of the designers. The particular curve of a back-rest, or the twist of a leg, the angle of a seat or the colour of the entire artefact all reflect the stylistic consciousness of each era. From Gerrit Rietveld and Alvar Aalto via Verner Panton to Eva Zeisel; from Art Nouveau to International Style, from Pop Art to Postmodernism, the phenomenon of the chair is so complex that it requires a reference work as comprehensive as this to do it full justice. They are all here: Thonet’s bentwood chairs and Hoffmann’s sitting-machines, Marcel Breuer’s Wassily chair and Ron Arad’s avant garde armchairs. The book, a slightly abbreviated version of our classic title 1000 Chairs, devotes one page to each chair, displayed on its own as pure form, with biographical and historical information about the chairs and their designers. A special treat for anyone who loves design and a must for collectors!
