Cachao Grellow Chair

Pretty decent price for some extra modern seating, don’t you think? The ‘grellow’ might be a nice color pop for your dining area, especially if it’s feeling a bit drab and in need of some summer refreshment.

Magis Spun Chair

This chair made the rounds after its launch at Salone del Mobile, but it wasn’t until I saw the production pics and the video did I fully appreciate the design. Thomas Heatherwick (of recent UK Pavillion fame) was inspired by the craft of large scale metal spinning used to make Timpani drums. Using a rotationally symmetrical form, the Spun Chair appears to be more sculpture when upright, yet when lent on its side, it becomes a comfortable and playful chair. This version of the chair by Magis (shown above) is made of plastic rather than metal, which means it can be used outdoors and eventually recycled.

Designed by Thomas Heatherwick and manufactured by Magis.
