Since we’ve all flown coach, shifting around in an uncomfortable airplane seat that displaces what should be lower back support in place of an oversized headrest, makes it easy to see how proportions and angles can make or break a piece of furniture. While I wish I could tell you over-stuffed La-Z-Boy chairs are being spotted in Milan, I will say that many furniture designers are creating beautiful chairs and tables with all of the right proportions. It’s as if minimalist designers are on a mission to prove their pieces worthy of the “comfort” keyword with their use of high quality materials. Using the system of ergonomics, take a stroll through the latest and slimmest of slats and angular pieces.
In an effort to bridge the process of production and a consumer-driven result, designer Noé Duchaufour-Lawrance says his Market chair for Petite Friture was inspired by the marketplace itself, which “links all the social layers of the city or village… its existence constantly reminds us of our need for communication, encounters, exchanges and simplicity. Market is inspired by the structures and wood slats that form the market stalls." Composed of a solid oak frame and a removable slatted wood roll, it was released in January 2013 during the Maison & Objet show. In a juxtaposition of slits and slats in a supportive, waffle-like structure, the Platform tables by Juan Pablo Naranjo find strength in a skinny steel construction. Raising it up a few feet, the Flecha bookshelf by FOBricated introduces a new slant on the otherwise rectangular shape (that is usually filled with more rectangular books). In solid Douglas Fir or Maple wood, the Flecha is an asymmetrical, K-shaped shelving unit whose subtle twist on normal minimalism may raise a few eyebrows. Thanks to each of the designer’s decision to employ durable materials, these bare bone designs – in all of their slatted, angular glory – will not only remain stylish for years and trends to come, they’ll last. Simple as that.
