We first saw this at Salone in Milan but were reminded of it as we flicked through the pages of the latest issue of Mix, our favourite trends and design magazine from the good, and very clever, people at Global Color Research. And indeed, as Modenus UK gazes out of the window, he sees leaves turning brown, citizens in overcoats and a grumpy looking traffic warden putting a ticket on his car. Oh.
Anyway, we love this chair designed by DSquared2 for Kartell. Of course if it sprouted new life in the Spring – that would be really cool! We think it should be called the ‘Autumn Chair’, you understand, because ‘Fall Chair’ has rather different connotations. The twin duo Dean and Dan Caten designed this chair as a tribute to the city of Milan in interpretation of Philippe Starck’s Masters Chair.
Mix identify Ember as one of the four palettes which are the theme for its stand at 100% Design and choose this chair to illustrate it. They will, no doubt, be telling us more as they have promised to escort our party of influential and prolific American and Canadian interior design and life style bloggers around the London show as part of Blogtour. And if you don’t know about Blogtour, where have you been?
