Parabola chair. Carlo aiello.


Blog Widget by LinkWithin

The design intention of the Parabola Chair was to create a simple and porous yet highly sculptural chair. The challenge was to achieve a single surface that serves as seating, armrest, and backrest supported by a minimal structure. Although the chair exhibits curvatures in two directions (hyperbolic paraboloid) all its components are straight and easy to manufacture. In order to achieve perfect comfort both curvatures were carefully calibrated to hold the body in the best position.

The Parabola Chair received the prestigious International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) Studio Award in 2013.
