Poêle Chair by Philippe Starck for Alessi
Another chair to be presented at Milan 2011 this month is Piana by British architect David Chipperfield for Italian design company Alessi. Alessi is well known for its innovative designs in mostly all things that can be labelled “accessories”, so a new product being a chair is a unique step for the company.
Piana is a folding and stackable seat that is manufactured from 100% recycled polypropylene and rotates around a single point held by two screws. Available in 6 kitchen-friendly (2 of which even sound yummy) colors: white, raspberry red, saffron yellow, patina green, traffic black and pebble grey.
