On top of this extraordinary journey, in March 2010, the MOMA in New York announced that the visionary Entronauta chair designed by Riccardo Blumer and Matteo Borghi Desalto in 2007 joined the permanent collection of the prestigious Museum of Modern Art.
With the production of a particular version of symbolic objects such as table and seat Entronauta Mac, the company proves to be also aware of the existence of an increasingly sophisticated market that appreciates the uniqueness of some limited edition pieces.
The session Entronauta – born by looking at the shell of an egg as Riccardo Blumer argues for the strong resistance that is common to a hollow object and the thin walls – has a contribution of originality that is, not only in the form itself, in the innovative production process patented by Desalto. A closed pouch of tissue that mimics the shape of a chair becomes self-supporting through a process of hardening of the tissue properly impregnated with polyurethane. Each piece is born different and each session is particularly suitable to be considered “unique”. Desalto decided this year to produce limited edition (20 pieces) a version of Entronauta in woolen cloth from the particular shade of blue.
The new system includes a padded seats Soap armchair and a chair. “A Chair”, as claimed by the designer Piergiorgio Cazzaniga, “continuing to caress her, has lost its edge and thickness of each useless.” So soft, simple and comfortable.
Attentive to the changing customs and habits, Desalto introduced this family of upholstered seats that allow long chat in a relaxing pleasing that more and more people consuming the evenings around the dinner table without feeling the need to move into the living room.
Also new is the Sand Light by Pocci&Dondoli – and redesigned the original derivation of the now famous chair Sand – light to the eye and light in weight thanks to an aluminum frame and upholstered in polyester fiber. Solid and durable Sand Light is a happy meeting point between formal structural stability and sobriety, specifically designed for use in both domestic and contract ideal. Eco-friendly, as only the aluminum and a PVC free polyester fabric can be, Sand Light is part of a business plan that has a keen eye on environmental sustainability.
And finally, the coffee table designed by Arik Levy Maxit. He plans one or two ovoid shapes that rotate around a hinge side stile, and assumes different configurations.
