Fornasarig & Magis Chairs

Il Salone Del Mobile 2011

Kite Chair by Shin Azumi for Fornasarig

Today I was stunned by the beauty of so many chairs that I saw and continually drawn to the mix of wood (old fashioned) and textiles (often new fashioned) so that the wood was softened up and the newfangled fabrics and textures were warmed up by the wood. Foremost among what I saw today was in these two showrooms: Fornasarig and Magis. Enjoy!
