Shortwave: ‘Alle’ chair – preview Milan Furniture Fair 2010

by Oliver Geffken. Average Reading Time: less than a minute.

Luca Nichetto’s new chair design for the Italian manufacturer Skitsch will be launched at next month’s Milan Furniture Fair 2010. Called ‘Alle’, it combines a tubular-steel structure with a curved plywood seat element, with a clever use of a colour gradation on the latter integrating the two.

There are two versions of the chair: one is four-legged, the other has a column base. Skitsch’s new London store on the Brompton Road, which opens at the end of March, will preview the piece before its official launch in Italy.
